Best Dressed at the American Music Awards

Jenny McCarthy in Victoria Beckham

Nicki Minaj in Oscar de la Renta

Heidi Klum in Giles (except for her hair and makeup...)

Katy Perry in Vivienne Westwood

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

Taylor Swift in Reem Acra

There were slim pickings from this year's AMA's, but the above were definitely the standouts. Our favourite is probably Nicki Minaj! This dress is quite conservative for her, in comparison to what she usually wears, but it looks fabulous! Our reason for picking her could also be due to our affinity towards Oscar de la Renta... Jennifer Lopez comes in at a close 2nd. Who is your favourite?

I Heart Cat Deeley

Been watching So you think you can Dance season 8, hosted by Cat Deeley. Can I just say that I love her?! Not only is she possibly my favourite reality tv host ever, she is a blonde bombshell! Check out those legs! I think she is taller than just about everyone on that show. Here are some of my favourite outfits from the season:

In Markus Lupfer and Jimmy Choo shoes

In vintage

In River Island and Jimmy Choo shoes

In Topshop (from 10 years ago) and Jimmy Choo shoes

In Warehouse, vintage belt and Christian Louboutin shoes

In Jenny Packham and Jimmy Choo shoes

In Elie Tahari, Matthew Williamson belt and Givenchy shoes (love her hair with this look)

In Tom Ford (from 12 years ago, sitting in the back of her wardrobe!) and Christian Louboutin shoes

In Catherine Malandrino and Matthew Williamson shoes

In Jenny Packham and Miu Miu shoes (so adorable!)

In Lanvin and Christian Louboutin shoes

In vintage and Sergio Rossi shoes

In Susana Moncao and Miu Miu shoes (HOT)

And did you know that Cat actually picks and styles her own looks? Most of the clothes she wears on the show are her own. AMAZING. I would love to have her wardrobe.

I think what is most amazing about Cat is that her style is so versatile - from 1920s flapper to colourful punk! I think that's the best sort of style; not being put in a box with one type of look and being able to wear just about anything and pull it off.

They remind us of the marc jacobs mouse shoes:

Bit of a game of cat a mouse to me... har har

What do you guys think? Yes or no? At almost USD$650 a pop we're not so sure...

Where's Your Head At?

Seen all sorts of things on people's heads lately:
1. The Hat
Looks like there are a lot more felt fedoras going around, or variations of the sort. You can't really go wrong with this sort of look. Loving the different colours available too.
Photos via the glamourai, cupcakes & cashmere, 5 inch and up, neon blush, froufrouu, natalie off duty, i've got a lust for life,song of style, and

2. The Flopsy-wopsy Hat
For those who are a bit more sun-smart.

3. The Beanie
You can only get away with this in the colder weather. Times like these I wish Malaysia had winter :( Also, loving that Ana Dello Russo made hers into some sort of fascinator - how funny.

4. The Cap
Been seeing a lot more of this look, even in editorials. Very interesting...

5. The Head Band/Wrap
The feminine version of rambo = rambo-chic??? e.g. "OMG that hair piece is so rambo-chic!"
The Versace x H&M ones kinda look like swim caps. Made me giggle a little.

Which is your hair piece of choice?
