Emmys 2014: A very red, red carpet

Alright, alright, alright. We all know that "Girls" star Lena Dunham ended up on al-most every worst dressed list regarding this year's Primetime Emmy Awards. But have you really stopped and asked yourself why?

I assume the comments would read some-thing like this: "Look at her, she's so fat, she should not be in a ball gown that makes her even wider" or "That dress looks like a wedd-ing cake exploded". For the record, yes, Lena Dunham is a big girl who is not ashamed of her body. She is a fearless actress who is not afraid to take risks on the red carpet and to constantly have fun with fashion. She also has a new hair-color and a gorgeous boyfriend.

What do you got?

Now that I got the Lena Dunham and her Giambattista Valli dress burden off my chest, we can move on to the rest of the night's risk-takers. Finding herself very high
on my best dressed list is Dunham's co-star Allison Will-iams who also chose to wear one of Valli's gowns from the designer's F/W '14 Haute Couture collection. The rest of the successfully clad actress-es who wore his designs included Michelle Monaghan and Amanda Peet.

The color of the night was definitely red. I have counted approximately thirteen red gowns - some more, some less successful, but all equally impactful. The list of women who wore the popular color is filled with names such as January Jones in Prabal Gurung, Claire Danes in Givenchy and winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a beautiful shade of coral, courtesy of Carolina Herrera.

Furthermore, "Scandal" star Kerry Washington showed off her post-baby body in an electric orange Prada dress with a sparkling mini-skirt underneath and Lizzy Caplan shone in a backless black and white Donna Karan gown that literally took everyone's breath away. Some actresses, however, were less fortunate on the red carpet such as Debra Messing and Taylor Schilling in a beaded Zuhair Murad dress who bore with their choices.

Vogue US September 2014: Victoria Beckham

Between her rocketing fashion empire and newest clothing auction which will benefit African mothers with AIDS, it is only appropriate that Victoria Beckham should find herself on the cover of the September issue of Vogue US. That is why I put myself in Anna Wintour's shoes and made a fake cover featuring the designer and star dressed in Gucci.

#MyCosmoStyle: A day at the Cosmopolitan

If there is one lesson that we all have learned from years of travelling is packing lightly. Vacation style should be cool and effortless and one must know which key items to bring along. For my entry of the #MyCosmoStyle challenge I have decided to create a comfortable and stylish outfit which can easily transition from day to night with just a change of the right accessories.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has a lot to offer to its guests and every woman will want to experience all the opportunities available. In order to have time to enjoy every bit of the hotel without stressing over your appearance, get a simple dress like the Calvin Klein below that will make it through the day.
1. Red Valentino leather tote - $650 | 2. Linda Farrow rose gold sunglasses - $1,065 | 3. Charlotte Olympia velvet slippers - $595 | 4. Anita Ko 18-karat rose gold earring - $1,700 | 5. Calvin Klein Collection crepe dress - $1,895 | 6. Stella McCartney silk blazer - $2,180

They say when in Vegas go fun, so pair it with these adorable Charlotte Olympia kitten slippers for breakfast at the Wicked Spoon Buffet and add a lightweight silk blazer to make it more appropriate for lunch at Scarpetta. If you are planning on lounging by the pool in-between meals at the Marquee Dayclub don't forget your Valentino tote and Linda Farrow rose gold sunglasses for an exquisite finish.

The most important rule you must remember when transitioning an outfit from day to night is picking accessories with a completely different vibe from the previous as most people won't notice you've changed. Trade the comfortable slippers for a pair of sexy Aquazzura sandals, grab a wild party purse and add a dark shade of nail polish and you are ready to hit the Marquee Nightclub until the morning!
1. Calvin Klein Collection crepe dress - $1,895 | 2. Aquazzura fringed sandals - $945 | 3. Saint Laurent jacquard bag - $1,850 | 4. Ana Khouri 18-karat gold ear cuff - $3,410 | 5. Saint Laurent bleu galuchat nail polish - $27

So book a room at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas right away and enjoy the perks in style!
