SHIRT : Les Artists
SHORTS : Henry Holland for Debenhams
SHOES : Groupon Hk (Dad's)
SOCKS : Monki
HAT : I have no idea, had it when I was a toddler

It's strange how these hats have suddenly become such a hit. I still remember them as hats I'd hate to wear as a toddler. My grandparents always told me the story about whenever they attempted to put a hat on me as a toddler. They said I'd always end up throwing it onto the ground just to annoy them. Apparently it made me smile. I was a real sassy baby, and I guess I still am in some ways.

Recreating Emmys 2014

Here are some of my favourite 2014 Emmy award red carpet looks that I decided to recreate. All these looks I styled are toned down versions of what some celebrities debuted on the red carpet. Enjoy.

1. Sarah Hyland

On Nat, I decided to pair a white Style Stalker summer dress with a House of Holland midi skirt covering her knees. It's a lighter take on Sarah Hyland's beautiful look since it's easier to move in. Also realistically you may be driving or taking public transport from place to place so having a full fledged floor  length gown may not be ideal.


2. Taissa Farmiga

Taissa Farmiga looked so pretty at the Emmys, but I wanted to harshen this look up a little bit by showing more leg with this asymmetrical skirt I made. The dress was actually a low v neck wrap dress, but I decided to flip it the other way. It's a nice party or wedding banquet look I'd say.


3. Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham's outfit was a bit of a shocker. Not many people liked it, but I personally did. I will say her hair colour looks more like a bad wig, yet the palette of her tutu and blouse were just gradient brilliance! Thus for my interpretation, I stuck to everyday pieces thinking from a student point of view. The lanyard is great for your student card. Plus if you're in high school, high waisted shorts like these look longer than they are.


4. Sarah Silverman

Funny lady Sarah Silverman bared her cleavage in a green low v neck gown with a small embellished waist. What I did, was layer a short v neck with a bold electric blue vest and some very high heels because I was thinking "power woman" when I was constructing this.


5. Julie Bowen

Julie Bowen looked so gorgeous and youthful! I wanted to style nat in a fun flirty look. Something you can dance in.

6. Sarah Paulson

I wanted to channel the polka dots from Paulson's Armani Prive into a college/high school, day to day look. To me, the leather satchel pulls it all together. I found that there are tons of good quality, unique ones amongst several etsy shops.

VMA 2014 : 10 Favourite Red Carpet Looks

Rita Ora in Donna Karan Atelier

She looked like Marilyn Monroe with slicker hair!

Ke$ha in Johanna Johnson

I like the coloured hair a lot, went well with her gown. 

Iggy Azalea in Atelier Versace

A fancy cyborg hit the VMA red carpet.

Ariana Grande in a Moschino dress

A "mini doll" was able to make this Moschino look super cute rather than trashy.
Miley Cyrus in Alexandre Vauthier

This outfit shows off her tattoos really well.

Solange Knowles in H and M.

What??? It's H and M! This is something I'd love to wear.

Charli XCX in Moschino Cheap and Chic.

Fell in love with her music and attitude ever since SuperLove.

Demi Lovato in Lanvin

She looks extremely mature in a really good way. I would never have known she came from disney.

Gwen Stefani in L.A.M.B Couture

All I could think of was I want this two piece outfit.

Wiz Khalifa in  Amber Rose in a Laura Dewitt dress.

I'm more drawn to Wiz's look than Amber rose. Not only does it look great, but it also is the public service announcement for suicide prevention. Good on him (or his stylist?).
