Bling it On at the Grammy Awards

The best dressed songstresses brought out the bling (and didn’t miss a style beat) at music’s biggest night—also known as the 2019 Grammy Awards! Sparkly gowns finished with luxe extras epitomized exactly what we hope to see on a red carpet…bling. And with that our winners are…

Lady Gaga is a staple on the awards season fashion circuit this year, with the acting and singing nods she’s pulling in for her role in the movie ‘A Star is Born’—not that we’re complaining. Last night Gaga had us gaga over her metallic silver, high shine Cèline gown and Tiffany Co. jewels (she was reportedly drowning in over 100 carats of diamonds!). Oh, and we should mention Gaga took home three trophies: Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Song Written For Visual Media for ‘Shallow,’ and Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Joanne.’

Dua Lipa may have won Grammys for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording for ‘Electricity’ with Silk City, but her sequinned, silver Versace gown with a sweetheart neckline, had us cheering the loudest. The long train of the dress paired with Bvlgari jewellery, was just the right mix of drama and decadence.

Before opening the show by performing her hit song ‘Havana,’ Camila Cabello was all that glitters in this fitted Armani Privé, pink gown. With long-sleeves, a high-neck and a cut-out back, this sparkly dress hugged Cabello’s figure perfectly. Harry Winston jewellery and Tamara Mellon heels ended the song (we mean, look) on a stylish note.

Kate Hudson Launches Happy X Nature

Actress Kate Hudson has launched a clothing line! Her ready-to-wear collection, Happy X Nature (a.k.a. Happy by Nature), is full of pretty pieces channeling bohemian vibes—a mix of ruffles, floral prints, breezy linen, and denim fabrics. Definitely summer-approved!

It’s also eco-friendly. As a brand, Happy X Nature believes in reducing the environmental foot-print left by the fashion industry, considering such things as the factories, packaging, garment tags, and even the fabric (some materials incorporate recycled plastic bottles—don’t ask us how that works!), they use.

Equal parts sustainable and stylish, check out some of the pieces for yourself below.

 

Solar Dress, $131: A white, cotton summer dress is a must-have. Wear it like Kate did (pictured) with a hat and booties for a look that’s a little bit country.


Savanna Maxi Dress, $198: This maxi dress is an effortless way to look totally put-together. Pairs well with sandals and sunnies.

 

Floral Angel Jumpsuit, $131: You’ll be ready for an afternoon wine tour, bridal shower, or lunch date, with this pale blue jumpsuit. The tie-back, with it’s ruffles and cute cut-out, is also super girly.


Goldie Dress, $104: Mother-approved (especially since this piece is no doubt named after Kate’s mom, Goldie Hawn), this strapless yellow dress is vacay ready, with its three flowing tiers and sunshine hue.

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs married model-turned-candlemaker, Char Defrancesco, over the weekend in New York City. The celeb-packed invite list included Naomi Campbell, Kaia Gerber, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, Rita Ora—among so many others. While the grooms wowed in matchy-matchy, similar-hued green suits, the guests also dressed to impress (many wearing Marc Jacobs, of course), as they were snapped by photogs on their way into the reception at The Grill in Manhattan. Join the ranks in stepping up your fash-game and be our (wedding) guest, when attending nuptials this spring and summer. How about saying “I do” to one of these?

ASOS DESIGN Long Sleeve Lace Panelled Pleat Midi Dress, $158: The pleated skirt of this peach hued dress is ready for twirling on the dance floor (and we say, “YES!” to the long sleeves!).

Ever New Bonnie One Shoulder Jumpsuit, $180: Accessorize this light pink one piece with a blingy pair of statement earrings and a sparkly clutch.

Nanushka Kalila Dress, $930: The front slit and tie at the neck add a little extra to this solid colour satin dress. Consider it something blue (for you).

BCBGMAXAZRIA Floral Vine Applique Gown, $647: Perfect for an evening affair, the floor-dusting, tiered ruffle skirt of this dress reminds us to eat (wedding) cake. Fittingly the floral pattern also looks like little hearts.

Whistles Tie Back Maxi Dress, $348: This full-length, maxi dress is the epitome of ‘party in the back,’ with its draping tie.

The Spring issue of Real Style Magazine is out now (find it online here)! Flip to the Fashion News section and we highlighted the Thierry Mugler: Couturissime exhibit at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA), through September 8, 2019. Here we continue our conversation with exhibit curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot. Consider it bonus insider info.

Real Style: What separates Thierry Mugler: Couturissime from other fashion exhibits?
Thierry-Maxime Loriot: I have a different point of view and approach and love to collaborate with living artists and pay tribute to their work, but not in a retrospective way, more as an installation about their passions and obsessions; to make it very alive and [something] that people can relate to it. I feel very spoiled to be able to work with these creators. When they asked me, I really wanted to do this project, but with the same team I did the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibitions: the MMFA. The Museum has a unique expertise and an incredible team.

RS: There are more than 150 ensembles included in the exhibit. If you had to choose one, which is your personal favourite?
TML: The whole exhibition is a highlight… most pieces have never been shown to the public. I always love to integrate a lot of photography, videos, music, etc.; elements that visitors can relate to, for different age groups, whether it is a piece worn by a singer or an actress or to put the pieces into a social context and tell a story with it. I would say [Mugler], the man himself and his message, which is very necessary for a young generation to understand: that you can be different, and very creative and be successful at the same time. There is beauty in difference and we should embrace it. Museums provide access and tell a story with these fascinating artists. To take the words of Nathalie Bondil, Director [General and Chief Curator] of the MMFA, it is easier now to see a haute couture dress up close, than to see a Picasso or a Warhol that most museums have in their permanent collections. Fashion and haute couture have long been considered very elitist, it still is very inaccessible. Fashion is a form of art, the only one we can live in. 

RS: What was your reaction when you were asked to curate the exhibit?
TML: I was very touched as [Mugler] refused to everyone for the past two decades. It was a fantastic adventure to have access to him and he was very excited about creating an installation, not a funeral exhibition.

RS: Are there any surprises?
TML: So many… you have to come and visit!!!
