Oscars 2016 is officially over. Wow! What a night it was! There were a lot of surprises during the show as well as unpredictable wins. For example, I didn’t expect Alicia Vikander to win the best supporting actress title. I thought (hoped) that Kate Winslet will win. I am really happy for Brie Larson for winning the best actress award. And, of course, I am beyond ecstatic for Leonardo DiCaprio!! Finally he has his well-deserved Oscar.

It was a great night in terms of fashion as well. Let’s get a closer look at the most beautiful dress of the night.

Oscars 2016 is tonight and I can’t wait to see all the amazing evening dresses on the red carpet. As well as red carpet, there is one more thing that is bothering me! I want to know the answer to the main question which bothers a lot of people: “Will Leonardo DiCaprio finally win the Oscars?!” Don’t know what excites me more – Leo or dresses?

It is always hard to wait, so before we will celebrities in the real dresses, I have selected the ones that I would wear if I had to walk the red carpet tonight. There are so many stunning gowns and to select just a few is very hard. I have already tried to choose a few magnificent pieces once during this awards season. Some of them have already appeared on the red carpet of various award ceremonies. But there are still gowns that might appear tonight, which I still hope will happen.

But additionally to this list of dresses, I have selected a few more from the latest Fall Ready-to-Wear 2016 and Pre-Fall 2016 collections. These dresses are in my favourite colours for Academy Awards ceremony – gold, red and black, with a few other gorgeous exceptions. So, what else can I add? Let’s just enjoy the dresses and hope that Leonardo DiCaprio wins tonight!

BAFTA Awards is a trophy issued by British Academy of Film and Television Arts that rewards the best work seen on British cinema screen during the previous year. This year the awards ceremony was held on Sunday 14 February at the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden.

This is the first time I cover red carpet looks from the BAFTA Awards, usually I concentrate only on Golden Globes, the Oscars and Cannes. But this year is different, because I saw my favourite dress by Oscar de la Renta from my suggestions list on the red carpet, and I just had to write about it.

5 Best Dressed Celebrities At The BAFTA Awards 2016

1. Annabelle Wallis in Oscar de la Renta

Annabelle Wallis looked absolutely stunning in a red dress by Oscar de la Renta! I was choosing this dress for Cate Blanchett, but it looks even better on Annabelle, don’t you agree?

Goya Awards, (los Premios Goya), is the Spain’s equivalent of the Oscars. It is the main national annual film event in Spain. This year Goya Awards 2016 celebrated it’s 30th edition and was held on the 6th of February in Madrid Marriott Auditorium Hotel.

This prestigious award is delivered in 28 categories to reward the best Spanish films, actors and actresses. My knowledge of Spanish language is not perfect, so I can’t watch the movies yet. Because of that I also don’t know a lot of Spanish actors and actresses which is a shame, as all of them are gorgeous. But at least I can enjoy the beautiful women in stunning dresses on the red carpet, right?

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of tastefully dressed celebrities! I think that a lot of American actresses should check out what their Spanish colleagues are wearing and take notes. I was happy to find out about new evening dress designers which I never heard of before. After watching their creations on the Goya Awards 2016 red carpet and a bit of research, I fell completely in love. There is a chance that Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad will be pushed down on my favourites list.

Goya Awards 2016 Best Red Carpet Looks

1. Penelope Cruz in Versace

I absolutely love Penelope Cruz and I guess she is the only Spanish actress that I know. She looks absolutely stunning in this Versace dress.

SAG awards 2016 red carpet had a lot of pleasant surprises. All in all celebrities looked amazing, there were a lot of beautiful dresses and exceptional jewelry, but only 7 of them really stood out for me. You know that I love classy and feminine looks, right? So, these are the SAG Awards 2016 red carpet celebrity best dresses that I absolutely loved and would wear myself:

SAG Awards 2016 Best Dressed

1. Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab

Rachel McAdams looked absolutely stunning in Elie Saab dress. Well, I wonder who wouldn’t look gorgeous in Elie Saab? I haven’t seen anyone yet who could ruin this piece of art! Elie Saab is always the best choice! I know that a lot of fashion gurus have issues with a flood of dresses by the designer on the red carpets, but I absolutely don’t mind it. The more Elie Saab the better, if you ask me.

Critics Choice Awards 2016 is the second red carpet event this year. I am happy how 2016 has started and each week my excitement is rising towards the Oscars! Of course, Critics Choice Awards 2016 is not the Academy Awards and not even the Golden Globe, in fact, I don’t think that I have ever covered red carpet fashion from this particular ceremony. Actually, the reason it got my attention is because I have guessed the dress!! Yay! I told you that we should wait and the dresses that I’ve picked will definitely show up on the red carpet! And I was right. The gorgeous burgundy dress by Zuhair Murad that I have initially suggested for Rachel Bloom to wear to the Golden Globes 2016, Krysten Ritter wore to the Critics Choice Awards 2016. And although I don’t really love how the dress (it deserved better) looks on Krysten, I am happy that the dress have made an appearance! I am adding the photo of the model in the same dress, just to get the idea of how it should look. I still believe that Rachel Bloom would look much better in this dress as she has curves, but what can we do, right?

self portrait black and white dress

Self-Portrait dress? Up until now I didn’t even know that there is such thing. I found out about Self-Portrait brand by chance, when my friend arrived to our club’s Christmas cocktail party wearing astonishing lace dress. When I asked her who the designer is, I was not expecting to hear the unknown name for me. Of course, I didn’t show that I am not aware of the name, but I was very surprised by the quality and design of the dress. It looked show-stopping.

After drinking too much of champagne that day, I forgot all about the dress and the brand. Until yesterday when browsing through one well-known luxury shopping website I stumbled upon a beautiful dress and was surprised to find out that it was by Self-Portrait again. Now, this brand really got my attention and I decided to find out more about it.

Turns out, Self-Portrait is a relatively new contemporary fashion London-based brand founded in fall of 2013 by Malaysian-born designer – Han Chong. And it is rapidly becoming celebrity favourite. Such stars as Reese Witherspoon, Elizabeth Banks, Lucy Hale, Kristen Stewart, Kendall Jenner, Miranda Kerr and blogger Man Repeller were spotted wearing Self-Portrait dress.

What I personally love about Self-Portrait dress is that it is feminine, detailed and not plain at all. When I choose a dress for a special date, cocktail party or wedding reception, I want it to be classy, flattering to my body, yet interesting, with a bit more details and special designer touch to it. I want to stand out of the crowd, I love the attention and wearing just simple LBD is not my thing. I don’t want to blend in, I want to shine! And I believe that in Self-Portrait dress you can achieve all that. I think that the label produces fresh, feminine, urban-inspired dresses which are perfect for cocktail parties. And of course, I just love the lace and embroidery trimmings!

I definitely fell in love with the brand and would like you to check out dresses that I have picked from the latest collection. You will feel special wearing these dresses, because each of them is so beautiful and unique!

Oscars 2016 full list of nominees is out! I am already excited and super happy that Leonardo DiCaprio is nominated. Even though I haven’t seen “The Revenant” movie yet (by the way it leads with total of 12 nominations!), I am sure Leo is great in it and finally the Academy Award will be his! Fingers crossed.

A new watch to celebrate each new year? What a great tradition it would be, right girls? Need to think about it! :)

Limited Edition Watch To Celebrate The Year Of The Monkey

According to Chinese calendar on the 8th of February starts a new year of the Monkey. I have already mentioned before that a lot of watchmakers created amazing limited edition Monkey watches to celebrate the official “ruler” of the 2016. And now there is one more addition to this list: manufacturer of prestige Swiss watches, Ulysse Nardin, has created their version.

Golden Globes 2016 red carpet didn’t disappoint me. There were so many amazing dresses, hairstyles and exquisite jewellery, that it will inspire stylists and bloggers to work harder and write about it for few months no less. And although none of my celebrity dress predictions came true (there is still hope for Oscars!), I am very happy with the dress choices by most of the girls.

Surprisingly, Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet didn’t make it to my best dressed list this year. Cate’s pale pink Givenchy dress reminded me of the lampshade and it was not doing her body any good. I guess we have found a dress, that Cate is not able to pull off. And what regards to Kate Winslet, although she looked ok-ish in her dark blue Ralph Lauren dress, there was a feeling that I have already seen her in it few years ago! This was a super safe choice for Kate and I wish she picked something more intriguing. Well, at least she won a Golden Globe as a Best Supporting Actress for her role in the Steve Jobs movie. Congrats!
