Cut It Out

The spring 2014 runway collections were a visual feast for shoe lovers, but there is one trend we’re looking forward to wearing in the new season. Prada and Jill Stuart displayed their cutout shoe designs during Milan and New York Fashion Week, which certainly made for one of spring’s most coveted styles.

As the cool-girl version of leather and lace, the cutout trend will make its mark as one of your closet staples. From city chic to classic cuts, the thrilling details of these reveal-and-conceal heels give a stand-out effect to almost any type of outfit.

The 2014 Golden Globes brought together the biggest and brightest talents from of television and film, so we expected nothing short of starlets’ dazzling in some seriously amazing ensembles. From the awards show to the post-party, the evening was filled with old and new fashion icons that showed off the biggest fashion moments and trends of the season.

Starting with some of the night’s best dressed, the stunner from Wall Street, Margot Robbie, continued to turned heads by wearing a flattering Gucci gown embellished with vintage Van Cleef jewels. Mom-to-be Kerry Washington and Olivia Wilde glowed on the red carpet, and proved that you can still look fabulous even with a bun in the oven! Amber Heard had the perfect mix of sexiness and elegance in a navy Versace gown, along with a perfectly messy up-do. Then last but not the least, there was the most inspirational woman of the night—Cate Blanchett, who donned a gorgeous, laced Armani Couture dress! Go Cate!

 

Celebs like Lupita Nyong’o, Hayden Panetierre, and Emma Roberts made strong statements with features that made their gowns the trendiest of the season. Some of the top trends were black and white, like Hayden’s Tom Ford masterpiece, vibrant reds, such as Lupita’s gown which made fashion headlines, and elegant mermaid gowns that added a touch of old world glam to the carpet.
