Sarajevo Film Festival 2014

Na upravo završenom filmskom festivalu u Sarajevu imali smo prilike da gledamo možda i najglamurozniji crveni tepih bivše Jugoslavije.

Stvar je prestiža prošetati crvenim tepihom u srcu Sarajeva, pogotovo što se organizatori uvek potrude da kao goste dovedu i neke glumce holivudske A produkcije.

Ove godine najviše pažnje privukle su dve "domaće" zvezde, naime Severina i Jelena Karleuša.

Ja volim stare Severinine pesme, i mnogo volim njen način odevanja (tu izuzimam provokativno-vulgarne kostime koje dotična oblači na svojim nastupima), i stvarno sam imala velika očekivanja od njenog ovogodišnjeg pojavljivanja na sarajevskom crvenom tepihu. Očekivanja nisu u potpunosti ispunjena.

Severina se pojavila u dugačkoj haljini sa printom modne kuće Emilio Pući, i uz svu njenu harizmu i fantastičnu šminku i frizuru, moja reakcija je bila "meh, ništa posebno". Jednostavno ova haljina, bez obzira na to koliko bila skupa, nije dovoljno očaravajuća za crveni tepih.
Moja ocena: 3

Sa druge strane, Jelena Karleuša, koju, izuzimajući njenu osrednju muzičku karijeru, smatram vrlo inteligentnom i intrigantnom osobom, se odlučila za, gle čuda, dosta provokativniju haljinu marke Versaće. Haljina, koja ima oblik sirene, stajala joj je odlično od struka nadole i sa leđa. Od struka pa naviše, meni je sve izgledalo čudno, da tako kažem. Njena šminka je isto tako bila jaka i izazovna, te nema sumnje da je privukla pažnju svih prisutnih. Izgledala je kao da uživa u svom pojavljivanju.
Moja ocena: 3

Emmy Awards 2014- Gown predictions

Emmy Awards, aka the biggest celebration of television work, will be held this weekend. Many of us can't wait to see not only who will be the winners in all major categories, but also who will leave us breathless on the red carpet.

I believe that we can expect an extraordinary evening with colorful outfits. It is still August and I don't think that so many ladies will choose black.

Here are some of mine suggestions/predictions:

Julia Roberts

These days Julia Roberts looks better than ever. Her fashion choices have became bold and sometimes unpredictable. She dares to wear short dress at Golden Globes, her shoes are playful and always make a statement, and she finally takes some risks. I would guess that she will either wear Elie Saab or D&G, but Valentino and Armani may be good options for her. I wouldn't like to see her in black, and she may go for a shorter dress this time as well.

Lizzy Caplan

Being one of the most creative red carpet actresses I expect Lizzy to look unconventional. I wouldn't be surprise to see her wearing Roksanda Ilincic.

Claire Danes

"Homeland" star always looks amazing on the red carpet. She likes lighter colors and dresses which follow the line of her body, so I expected something romantic and chic from her.

Julianna Margulies

Unofficial queen of the red carpet never disappoints with her fashion choices. Julianna Margulies likes to wear black and black/white combinations, but she is not afraid of experimenting with less known designers and vintage gowns. The star of our favorite drama "The Good wife" wears often Narciso Rodriguez, passed away L'Wren Scott and Lanvin, however I suggest one of the gowns of the latesr Oscar de la Renta collection, but since the summer is still on Julianna may choose of the two Carolina Herrera Resort 2013 gowns.

We will see... Let's just hope we enjoy this year's intro into the awards season.

Memory: L'Wren Scott


L'Wren Scott died. Apparently she committed suicide.

That was a hard news. Most people are referring to her as Mick Jagger's girlfriend and longtime partner. However, she was more than that. She was a great designer. She made a beautiful clothes, and it was always a pleasure to see stars such as Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz  and Amy Adams wearing her outfits.

Her talent will be missed. She will be missed. RIP.

The beginning of 2014

Before the Oscars I decided to recapitulate the beginning of 2014, by choosing my favorite red carpet looks so far.

I will start with Lupita Nyong'o, who has been the most dynamic celebrity in last months. Her fashion choices were all amazing:

Cate Blanchett was stunning at Golden Globes. She looked sensational in Armani Prive Couture.

White House State Dinner is usually an event where Michelle Obama shines. This year was no exception.

Rita Ora and Beyonce were beautiful while attending Britt Awards:

Elie Saab is still one the most worn designers on the red carpet. Two exceptional looks were worn by Amy Adams and Helen Mirren, while Diane Kruger continues to top the list of the always best dressed celebrities.

Finally, Angelina Jolie joined her partner Brad Pitt during Bafta Awards, in a quite unusual but very effective outfit. I can't wait to see what will she wear for the Oscars.

Grammy Awards- Red carpet wishes

Grammy Awards are probably the coolest red carpet event, simple because everything is allowed. That night stars have to be visible, they have to shine and even look a bit kitschy.

Here are five dresses which I would like to see on Grammys this year:

Zuhair Murad
Versace
Jean Paul Gaultier
Anthony Vaccarello
Alexander McQueen
