Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester singlehandedly made the MTV Awards relevant. I wasn’t planning on commenting on the who, what, and wears of this particular grade of award show; I definitely didn’t watch the red carpet procession but her fit required recognition. The fitted black Emilio De La Morena dress she was wearing was an understated sexy, perfectly on trend with its sheer detail. Those purple suede Brian Atwood booties are beautiful and are nothing to scoff at either. She tops her sophisticated sultry look with a softly pulled back updo, neat with a loose tousle and very natural makeup … lightly pinked lips, bronzed cheeks, and dewy skin. Honor Roll, affirmatively.
We took a few moments to browse and found some more looks that peeked our interest. Sienna Miller always looks flawless. Her green dress is from her own line, Twenty8twelve’s fall collection. That down-to-there dip at back is great. We happen to have a weakness for bare backs. I think it is one of the most beautiful areas on the body. Her Nicholas Kirkwood heels literally sparkle. Makeup is sheer and natural per usual … as if she isn’t wearing any at all.
We wouldn’t usually give Ashley Tisdale kudos for anything but her velvet ‘Gypsi’ wedges from the Paul & Joe women’s line Sister has been on our radar for some time. We love them to death and they are a great pairing to the youthfulness of her leather mini.
Kristen Stewart is super cute. She has a certain allure that is hard to pinpoint exactly. What is it about her? Striking, more so than pretty. Her litle Spiderman-esque dress is awesome and we don’t mind her Converse Chuck Taylors here. We regret that accessories are nil yet somehow it still works.
Last but not least, I don’t even know who Ashley Greene is but there is something early 90’s about her look – very original 90210 – from the deep red lips, body conscious sweetheart dress to the flip of the curls in her hair. We believe there is a conscious science at work and we appreciate her stylist for this one.
