Kerry Washington 

Kerry Washington looked great on the red carpet; perhaps, this is the promise of a great red-carpet season for Washington. Kerry’s garment is a little bit of a “happy” look and, not very typical for Giorgio Armani Prive or Kerry Washington.  This garment possessed beautiful crystal embroidery.

Anya Taylor Jay 

For the 2023 red-carpet season, Dior is looking very fashion forward. Fashion Reverie is in love with this nude haute couture Dior. This garment is quite embellished, and Anya is wearing Tiffany & Co diamonds.

Chelsea Handler 

Well, this look deserves a tap on the back of Chelsea Handler since this pretty lady doesn’t often get glammed up, but she was the host of the Critics’ Choice Awards. This pale orange Maticevski dress is a great fit for her and such a great color.

Angela Bassett

What a beautiful classic red-carpet look, a black gown with ruffles for. It is by Christian Siriano, and Angela looks magnificent.

Stephanie Hsu 

This look was another orange shade stunner! This Valentino gown has a beautiful shape with a flowing train. Great choice, Stephanie!!

Jen Tullok 

Yellow is always a good red-carpet choice, still not everyone can pull yellow off. This Bibhu Mohapatra gown looks as though it was designed for Jen!!

Sheryl Lee Ralph 

This custom-made, Jovana Louis one-shoulder dress sparkled on the red carpet and showed off just the right curves of beautiful Sheryl Lee Ralph. Fashion Reverie loves the simple gold cuff as an accessory.

Glamour and Surprise from the 2023 Golden Globes

The 80th Golden Globe Awards celebrates the best in film and television chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. After a one-year pause receiving criticism for the lack of diversity, it appears the Hollywood Foreign Press has been forgiven for their oversight with a bevy of Tinseltown A-listers making appearances on the Golden Globe red carpet. Overall, it was a fun night for all. The only exception of the evening was some not- so-well-received jokes by the host, comedian Jerrod Carmichael. However, the red carpet was safe and delightful, so here are some Fashion Reverie’s favorite looks.

Jamie Lee Curtis

What a perfect look!! We love a good cape especially for this Hollywood superhero. She wore a black jumpsuit and laced cape by Valentino. This look was effortless, simple yet impactful.

Kaley Cuoco 

This soon to be mom looked amazing in this lilac Vera Wang with jeweled straps. Kaley was radiant and happy!!

Julia Garner 

This is a dreamy look in a Barbiecore covered in sparkly crystals paired by De Beers jewelry! In Fashion Reverie’s opinion, Julia looks like a glamorous prima ballerina.

Billy Porter 

Is it possible that Billy Porter would never make the Best Dressed List? Of course, not!! This velvet, double-breasted gown with satin details is a great way to kick off the New Year and the awards season.

Michelle Williams 

Michelle Williams looked stunning in as Gucci gown covered in ruffles paired with Tiffany & Co. jewelry. She looks angelic.

Michaela Jay Rodriquez 

If Fashion Reverie had to pick out a single best look it would be this inspired bow-like gown by Balmain. This garment moved with Michaela and looked mesmerizing from any angle.

Claire Danes 

The Giambattista Valli dress featured the designer’s signature bow fully covered in embroidery. Fashion Reverie predicts that this gown could end up in a museum.

Laverne Cox 

This is a little bit of a different look from Laverne’s usual red-carpet sensations. This is a vintage John Galliano dress from Galliano’s spring 2007 collection, proving that great red-carpet looks are timeless.

Style Icons that Will Continue to Influence in 2023

It is still the beginning of the year, so there’s plenty of time to think about getting your fashion game forward. Of course, each season is different and each year we change and so does our style. However, certain celebrities ALWAYS remain iconic when it comes to fashion. Let’s look for inspiration from those that lead 2022 as style icons. Here are some of Fashion Reverie’s favorites in 2022.

Images courtesy of harpersbazaar.com and people.com

Lady Gaga 

She is like a chameleon.  Gaga changes her style according to her growth or in this case according to her role. The controversial film “House of Gucci” was great for her style. It gave Lady Gaga that old Hollywood glamour which she sometimes lacked in past years!! We love it!!

Images courtesy of redditt.com

Rihanna 

Fashion Reverie loved her pregnancy looks; so innovative, glorious, and chic. This new mom continued pushing best looks forward even post pregnancy. Not a surprise for Rihanna whom we always considered a style icon.

Chloe Sevigny 

Chloe always looks effortlessly perfectly put together. Whether on the red carpet or strolling around downtown NY, Chloe keeps setting those trends.

Mariska Hargitay 

Mariska Hargitay’s 2022 red carpet season was on fire. She seemed very comfortable in her body, consistently experimenting with some new looks while mingling with the elite of the fashion world.

Kim Kardashian 

Well, the reality star and entrepreneur may have crossed some boundaries with her 2022 Met Gala appearance in none other than Marilyn Monroe dress, causing lots of commotion; with all the wagging tongues, “breaking the internet.” For that controversy, Kim K made a lot of best dressed lists. Since breaking some rules is one of the things that fashion is about, Kim K easily fits on our list.

Harry Styles 

He is the epitome of what the world wants and needs these days.  Styles is always sharp and stylish, yet not afraid of his feminine side. It is something not just any guy can pull off and Harry sure is an inspiration for gender fluid fashion. 

Image courtesy of popsugar.com

J Lo

Newlywed Ms. Affleck probably wore most wedding dresses and bridal looks than any other celebrity last year. We of course have to blame her movie roles for that, but J Lo wore the plethora of wedding garments with the same passion as she wears everything.

Images courtesy of glamour.com

Sarah Jessica Parker 

After tons of controversy about her grey hair, this style icon stood up against age shaming and pulled off some impressive looks. Which is no surprise since SJP has that signature NYC look in her DNA. 

Image courtesy of tumbler.com

Lenny Kravitz

This list would not be complete without the addition of Lenny Kravitz. Since his ascent in music in the late 80s, Kravitz has been the epitome of style for those guys who are not afraid to mix vintage fashion with in-your-face sexy fashion that shows off a very fit bod.

Kravitz sense has evolved over the years, from his rock n’ roll sexy fashion vibe to the more luxury European style that he now dons. And you cannot his recent award as the CFDA’s ” Fashion Icon of the Year.”

2022 People Choice Awards Red Carpet

Before we all get too busy with the holidays, let’s enjoy another awards show with our favorite celebrities. It has been a great year when it comes to red carpets and these awards shows and the 2022 People Choice Awards with its purple carpet is the cherry on top! Held in Barker Hangar in Santa Monica most fashionable stars came out to play. Here are some of our favorite looks!!

Carrie Underwood 
 
Carrie Underwood sparkled in a sparkly suit by Any Old Iron. This is a really cool and comfortable look. Perfect for this time of the year and definitely a statement. Carrie looks very confident. Much bigger compliment than if her makeup was perfect, even though it was for this look.

Laverne Cox 
 
Laverne Cox wore a Collina Strada gown. What is so great about this flattering gown is the color and the print. Totally unexpected for a ball gown-like shaped skirt. Everything else was minimal except for the statement necklace. Fashion Reverie feels that opera gloves would add to this look much more.

Lizzo 
 
Lizzo is always having fun with her looks. Lizzo always opts for unique red-carpet looks. This time it is an off-the-shoulder Alexander McQueen gown. Fashion Reverie loves these colors and the print. It is also very flattering for her figure. And don’t think we did not see those great matching booties.

Ellen Pompeo 
 
Ellen Pompeo wore a metallic, multicolored jumpsuit with cutouts. It was a happy sort of look and a great fit for her. Jumpsuits are always a great idea, but only if you find one that makes a fashion statement like Ellen Pompeo made.

Erin Lim 
 
“E!” tv host looked very chic in a crop top gown with suspenders. We have seen similar looks before, but she just looks flawless in Jacquemus. Fashion Reverie loves her gold purse and natural make up!

Nahuane Drumond 
 
Embrace those curves girl! Nahuane opted for a figure-hugging dress by the Syndical Chamber. I guess we are noticing a necklace trend happening here and we love her statement choker paired with shoes.

Iconic fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent made the feminine black tuxedo popular in the 1970s. That said, Taylor Russell looks great in an Alexander McQueen variation on the feminine black tuxedo with cutouts at the Milan premiere of “Bones and All.”

Celebrity Fall Style 2022

In case you haven’t noticed, we are solidly in the fall season.  As we are all trying to get our fall wardrobe together, sometimes we get inspired by our favorite celebrities when it comes to updating our closet. Some celebs really know how to up their style game when the season changes. Fashion Reverie picked the best looks by celebrities we love to watch.

Gigi Hadid

This is an epic look! Of course, the green shades really add to this look, but it is very chic and show stopping. Blazer, button-up, and wool slack combo is the definition of fall style And Gigi nailed it!

Anne Hathaway

Anne at Michael Kors’ fashion show and showed us that even a traditional fall look does wonders. The turtleneck, and it is a dramatic one, paired with a great leather coat even in brown and black combination looks very Autumnal. It is obvious, that Hathaway pick up some fashion tricks from “The Devil Wear Prada”

Shay Mitchell

A trench coat is a must during the fall season. Shay Mitchell left a great impression on New York City streets by pairing this coat with black pants and pointed shoes. The light color cap is a surprise, yet it works.

Kate Moss

There is no fall season without at least one great blazer. It doesn’t matter how you style it, a great fall blazer always adds sharpness to any combination. Kate Moss is a master at giving us chic, elevated looks. Find a well-tailored blazer, and you are set for the next few seasons.

Kendall Jenner

How can “basics” look so good? Well, Kendall is a supermodel, after all. That shouldn’t stop us from feeling equally comfortable, literally, in a pair of mules and a little crop top. Put on those shades and make it cool.

Jennifer Lopez

Well, she looks great during any season and J.Lo brings new trends to the fore. In this fashion moment, big crossbody messenger bags are having a return moment.  Shorts, white button-ups and sneakers is a look perfect for transitioning from one season to another.

Fashion Reverie’s Favorite Celebs that Exhibit Halloween Style

It is time for some spooky inspiration with Halloween only days away! Do you have a scary outfit ready? Well, edgy just sounds more fun. Goth is a fashion statement, take it from Morticia Addams.  Simply iconic. Fashion Reverie wanted to share a few non-fiction characters from the celebrity world that rock similar styles all year around. Fashion Reverie loves spooky, freaky fashion!!

Images courtesy of pinterest.com and amazon.com

Helena Bonham Carter  

As a leading lady in Tim Burton movies, Helena Bonham Carter was always known to be “different” just like her characters and we love it all! She has played iconic roles such as Bellatrix Lestrange in “Harry Potter,” Mrs. Lovett in “Sweeney Todd,” just to name a few. Her gothic style merged with vintage fashion is Halloween-inspiring. 

Image courtesy of people.com

Marilyn Manson  

When it comes to wearing Goth, nobody does it like Marilyn Manson. Yes, Manson has kind of “retired” after sexual abuse allegations, but we cannot deny that Manson is one of the most controversial rock artists of our time which includes his makeup—white powder and dark red lips, often smoky eyes, and white contact lens. 

Image courtesy of pinterest.com and thetelegraph.com

Rose McGowan

Well Rose McGowan happens to be Marilyn’s ex, but she does have her own style. She was in movies such as “Deathproof, “Grindhouse,” and “The Black Dahlia.” Pretty much if there is a frightening and terrifying film, Rose is in it. Her style is edgy and outspoken.

Images courtesy of digitalspy.com and models.com

 Angelica Huston 

Angelica Huston naturally has the look we all imagine a goth woman should have. Angelica Huston’s portrayal of Morticia Addams in the 1990’s “Addams Family” movies, earned her a real life Morticia Addams spot.  And you forget her star turn in “Witches.” She is this character in real life, with her alluring appearance and edgy style.  

Images courtesy of digitalspy.com

Christina Ricci

Christina Ricci’s portrayal of Wednesday Addams is just as iconic as Angelica Huston’s portrayal of Morticia Addams in the cult classic. And that is proof positive with her portrayal of Kristina Van Tassel in “Sleepy Hollow.” Christina’s pale skin, big eyes, and beautiful Victorian dresses are just what we are looking for. She has made several appearances where the style of her characters was on full display in real life.  

Images courtesy of harpersbazaar.com

Courtney Kardashian 

Courtney Kardashian found her style thanks to her husband Travis Barker, and this style does fit her perfectly. She had a typical California look for most of her celebrity life until Goth love and the love of her Goth husband. The Barker wedding was a Goth wedding extraordinaire!!

Fashion Reverie Predicts Wedding Looks for Celebrity Couples

 We have come to the end of another New York Bridal Week and Fashion Reverie was inspired by all the gorgeous bridal collections and fancy presentations. Now that we have seen some gorgeous, and some “different” weddings this year, Fashion Reverie predicts what some celebrity brides might wear in the upcoming season.

Images courtesy of instyle.com and fashoinweekonline.com

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly

This is the relationship that we all keep hearing about. The couple officially got engaged on January 11, 2022. From drinking each other’s blood to starring in movies together, no doubt their wedding will be exciting. Well also goth, therefore we expect a black wedding dress. Arava Polak’s off-the-shoulder, floral embroidered tulle gown would just be a perfect fit—transparent and black.

Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman

This recently engaged couple has been together since 2004, and they have one son together, Eric, who was born in 2014. So obviously there is no rush to get married. Fashion Reverie predicts the gown to be somewhat subtle and romantic, so Ines di Santo is the way to go. 

Images courtesy of vanityfair.com and fashionweekonline.com

Rita Ora and Taika Waititi (Reportedly)

Reportedly engaged! Unlike other celebrity couples we don’t hear much about these two. Which doesn’t mean their wedding won’t be a big bang. Lihi Hod collection called Diamonds and Rust is a great option for Rita who is very fashion forward so the open finger gloves and lots of lace can be inspiring for this superstar. 

Images courtesy of people.com and Atelier PR

Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle

Former president Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle are engaged and going strong. This match was made in heaven or the other place!! The Morilee Empire Collection gown that has enough coverage would show off Kimberly’s curves seems ideal. Just something that seems to fit her style along with the cut out decolletage. 

Images courtesy of marieclaire.com and fashionweekonline.com

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Riley Roberts

The newly engaged couple has been together since they were in college. They met in 2011 at Boston University, which they both attended for their undergraduate degrees. Roberts proposed to AOC while in Puerto Rico on vacation. Milla Nova has prepared a spectacular mix of the never-before-seen 2023 collection and a retrospective of iconic styles from the previous collection, so this particular style caught our eye for Alexandria. It would look very flattering on her figure and the embroidery is simply mesmerizing.

Marc Anthony and Nadia Ferreira

Just three months after confirming his relationship with model Nadia Ferreira, the 23-year-old former Miss Paraguay, they shared the big news on Instagram Stories. Rami Al Ali is a dramatic dress for this young model but also unique and different so she can stand out from Marc’s previous brides.

Fashion Reverie’s 10th Annual Fashion Gala Red-Carpet Favorites

It is officially fall which in New York City means the gala season scene is about to bloom. If we judge by the 10th annual Fashion Gala hosted by New York Ballet, we are off to a very promising start. Ballet dancers, celebrities, and socialites showed up in some great and dramatic looks.  Fashion Reverie picked some of the favorites.

Julia Fox 

The “Uncut Gems” actress and former dominatrix keeps shocking us with her red carpet looks; however, this time around with more fabric than usual. She wore a grand, silver foil like gown by Zac Posen.

Kristin Davis

Wearing Monique Lhullier, looks stunning on the red carpet, kind of like Cinderella with a cape. Fashion Reverie loves the gold gown, and Kristin Davis shimmered down the red carpet.

Tiler Peck

We love seeing Valentino especially in neon green after all the fuschia shades overload. This gracious New York City Ballet principal dancer, of course, opted to wear pink pointe shoes to strut the red carpet. Look at the pointe shoes like they are high heels. They make the ballerina 3 or 4 inches taller!!

image courtesy of popsugar.com

Jordan Roth 

This American theater producer always leaves an impression. This time was no different. He wore a Balenciaga, full black look, with his hair pulled back and dramatic make up.

Image courtesy of suntravel.com

Unity Phelan 

This Bordo, Nensi Dojaka dress look was a perfect fit for this New York City Ballet soloist.  Simplicity, yet dramatic decolletage perfect for her body type, ready to make a pirouette on demand. 

Image courtesy of popsugar.com

Billy Porter 

Billy Porter is keeping up his appearances with another memorable red-carpet choice by Giles Deacon. He is giving us Greek mythology vibes! 

Image courtesy of popsugar.com

Laverne Cox 

We love this gown by Iris Van Herpen Couture, also perfectly accessorized.   What adds so much to the look is the hair pulled up coif, just like a prima ballerina except in a little tighter dress.
