GLAM OR SHAM?: Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and More Celebrate New Year’s Eve
Happy New Year, Glamazons!
I’m sure you all celebrated fashionably and had a blast whether you hit a party or counted down with Dick Clark! Our fave celebs rang in 2012 across the country giving a myriad of fashion moments and some were sickening and some were downright shameful. Let’s take a look!
Kim Kardashian threw a fete at her staple haunt, Tao Las Vegas, in a white minidress with a keyhole and jewels. She debuted new bangs and a shorter (but still long and black, blah) hairstyle. This outfit didn’t give me enough pizazz but as always, she looks fab. GLAM.
And LOVE Kris Jenner‘s menswear moments, YAS! She gets a GLAM, too.
At Diddy‘s New Year’s Eve bash in Miami (which he hosted with Kim Porter), Rihanna also had a keyhole moment in a surprisingly demure black lace dress and pointy black pumps with criss-cross ankle straps. She completed the look with a pop of red color on her lips. Umm, LOVE! GLAM.
Gabrielle Union also rang in the new year in Miami, hosting a Remy Martin V private dinner party with boyfriend, Dwyane Wade. Wade’s Miami Heat teammates, Chris Bosh and Lebron James were there and…awww!…Bron made the most of the holiday by proposing to his longtime girlfriend, Savannah Brinson. Too sweet!
So back to the fashion, Gabby wore an interesting blue jumpsuit with a plunging neckline accented by gold and blue beaded jewelry.
Sigh. Love you Gabby, but this is NOT it. SHAM.
In better fashion news, a newly-pregnant Kourtney Kardashian wowed at the Chateau Nightclub and Gardens in Las Vegas wearing a black sequin Diane von Furstenberg Ariel dress with a glorious split and matching Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps. Those sequins with that motherly glow? Gaawwgus. GLAM. SLAM. (P.S. If you love the dress, head over to Urban Sybaris for deets.)
And what’s a new year fashion recap without a sartorial spectacle from the one and only Lady Gaga? After the pop star put on a fabtastic performance at Dick Clark’s ‘New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ with Ryan Seacrest, she changed into a silver Versace gown and a face mask to push the button and make the ball drop alongside Mayor Bloomberg. Oh and BTDubs, she smooched him…as is NYE tradition. Amazing. Though she kept it dramatic with a mask, the Versace gown was very glamorous and flattering and I love the gloves. So, Gaga gets a GLAM. Werque.
Nicki Minaj also hit the stage at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve special in what looks like one of my old science class projects (Remember those assignments where you had to recreate the solar system? Yeah, that one). She wore a blue metallic bodysuit with a skirt and shoulders adorned with silver sequined balls. Okay. I’m sorry, I know ‘costume-y’ is her thing, but this outfit is giving me a headache. SHAM.
Glamazons, brace yourself for the latest ‘The Hills’ sighting (Remember that show?)! Lauren Conrad was spotted at Las Vegas’ Hyde Bellagio alongside Stephanie Pratt in a fab silver sequin dress and adorable black top hat. I live! GLAM.
Paula Patton reunited with her hubby Robin Thicke to toast the end of 2011 at The Delano in Miami. She wore a supercool black dress adorned with gold safety pins that actually looked more glamorous than punk rock. A smoky eye completed the look. GLAM!
Hey Big Sean! Anyway, the Black Eyed Peas diva wore a gold-plated tube top dress with matching strappy sandals. Is it me or is her mug looking more beat than ever? GLAM.
Selita Ebanks and Jessica White hit Gabby’s Remy V New Years Eve Dinner in some standout looks. Jessica wore a gold sequin gown with a plunging neckline AND a dangerously-high slit while Selita chose a white cowlneck dress with a high-lo skirt and a slit. Love how daring Selita’s look is and Jessica is totes sultry and festive in her sequins. GLAM for both.
Victoria Beckham celebrated New Year’s Eve at dinner at London’s Claridge’s with her adorable family. She rocked a black and gray printed dress with a white pilgrim collar (The new trend! More on that later) with black Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps and fierce shades. Obviously, GLAM.
So…what do you guys think of these NYE looks? Whose outfit slayed and whose was a tragic mess? My glam vote is for Kourtney, I live for her dress. Sham, sadly, goes to Gabrielle Union.
AND…how’d you bring in 2012?! More importantly, what did you wear? Haha. Spill in the comments!
