The entertainment and fashion worlds are buzzing today after the MTV Music Video Awards that took place in Brooklyn last night. Even if you weren’t able to catch the VMAs last night, chances are you have at least caught a glimpse of the great, and not so great, fashion moments. The night was not only memorable for the red carpet, but the show itself was quite a roller-coaster ride – from the amazing performance by the reunited N’SYNC to Miley Cyrus and her “interesting” performance with Robin Thicke. This was definitely an awards show that will be talked about for quite a while, and hopefully it doesn’t take the celebs on the worst dressed list too long recover from their terrible style choices. There were some celebs that stood out as the best dressed of the night and we will show how to take their looks to the beach with your luxury swimwear.
Glee star, Naya Rivera, rocked the red carpet in her black floor-length gown. Her dress featured cutouts that complemented her look perfectly and added to her already-there sex appeal! The cutout trend has really taken off this year and we love that it has made its way to the red carpet. The best way to get the cutout look with your designer swimwear is with a sexy monkini. The Drive Me Wild Monokini from Lady Lux has cutouts in all the right places and we know this is a style Naya would look amazing in!
Another leading lady on the red carpet was pop star Ariana Grande, who maintained her fun and youthful style in a beautiful floral dress. Floral prints are always a great choice and we love seeing more and more of them on the red carpet. The Secret Escape Dress and matching Secret Escape Bikini are great choices for adding floral print to your beachwear.
Did you love Taylor Swift’s classic-glam look as much as we did? This amazing look is at the very top of our best dressed list, and it is no surprise that Taylor has won our hearts again on the red carpet. The form fitting gown was anything but boring with a plunging neckline complete with black embellishment. Monochrome has been a standard favorite in fashion among celebs and it’s a trend that with always be in. Get the monochrome look for the beach or pool with Truly, Madly, Deeply in black or white. The color is simple and classic, but the gold hardware takes the look up a notch.
Selena Gomez is, quite clearly, one of our favorite up-and-comers. Much like our previous post about young starlet Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez also starred in the racy “Spring Breakers” movie. The movie seemed to be a cry to be taken seriously, maturity-wise, as the star seems to be moving further and further from her Disney days of past. We love the evolved Selena. Her style has also matured- showcasing a sophisticated side of the star that we are finally beginning to see. Most recently, the star has been celebrating her 21st birthday this past week. We would love to honor Selena’s birthday by featuring some of our favorite trends we’ve spotted on her and in turn, show you how to get the look using your luxury swimwear.
Within the last four months or so, Selena has been spotted in one trend almost weekly- the black and white trend. Black and white color-blocking has been huge, as we spotted at the Cannes Film Festival on stars such as Jennifer Lawrence, the MTV Movie Awards, and much more. Selena is a big fan of this trend based on the amount of times she’s spotted in it. We wanted to narrow down the field just a bit, and feature her glam all-white look. It’s simple, yet remains fashionable with the gold hardware featured on her top. Best of all, the star’s golden tan seems to radiate off of the white color. Much like Selena’s outfit, the Truly, Madly, Deeply bikini in white from Lady Lux features glam gold hardware to balance out what would otherwise be a more basic white suit.
We’re starting to feel as though we talk about chevron A LOT. Well, there’s obviously as reason, as star’s are wearing the trend left and right for summer! We saw this look of Selena’s and fell in love with the boho spin she put on her chevron print. Similarly, Call On Me and Crazy For You are both great bikinis with a bit of some boho inspiration, while maintaining the great designer swimwear qualities like the detailed hardware.
Our last look of Selena’s is a great option if you’re looking for a youthful bikini to stand out in. Tie-dye is not just for hippies anymore, as proven by not only Selena, but also by this great swimsuit from Lady Lux. The Still The One bikini features bright colors, unlike Selena, which not only brightens up the look, but adds to the youthful appeal that the suit has.
Overall, Selena has blossomed into a hot, young star and we can’t wait to see how not only her style will keep evolving, but also her music and movies!
Last night was the annual Billboard Music Awards- which takes place every year in Las Vegas. Taylor Swift and Maroon 5 were both huge contestants, each nominated in 11 categories. What Lady Lux was concerned with, however, was what everyone was wearing! Award shows and big red carpets like the Billboard Music Awards are always great inspiration for us when styling our designer swimwear as well as picking out which styles are on trend. We saw a few trends we loved- from jewel tones to summer hues, the red (or actually blue) carpet was full of some great styles, as well as some not so great… Here are a few of our favorites.
Taylor Swift has recently been nailing red carpet after red carpet. She’s blossomed from a conservative teenager into a sexy starlet. Lately she’s been wearing shorter hems, lower necklines, and sexy cutouts- all of which are done tastefully, of course, and not all at once… Last night she rocked a royal blue micro mini dress which showed off the singers best asset- her statuesque legs. We absolutely loved the sapphire blue color of the dress, which gave us inspiration for other similar jewel tones such as the aquamarine Paradise bandeau, the amethyst purple of the Unforgettable bikini, and the pink sapphire color of the Pretty Young Thing bikini.
Black is a color that’s considered a staple for many women’s wardrobes. It’s a color that can easily go from fab to drab- based on the cut of the style as well as how you accessorize it. Emmy Rossum looked amazing in her black, floor-length gown with the use of sexy cutouts with sheer paneling. Not only did the cutouts flatter and accentuate her shape, but they were done tastefully, without being too risque. Bikinis are the same way. Truly, Madly, Deeply and Pretty Young Thing are both classic black bikinis with a twist. Their gold hardware gives them an extra feeling of glamour- defining them as luxury swimwear.
Summer is fast approaching- which is one of the reasons we loved Renee Bargh’s bright summer hue on her dress. The fun coral color coordinated perfectly with her glowing tan, which was made complete with her beachy waves. Still The One features not one, but two fun summer colors in a youthful tie-dye pattern. Other great summer-y options include Call On Me, which features tons of bright colors in a fun chevron pattern, as well as Melt Away, whose bright coral and turquoise colors get you in a playful mood for the season!
Other great starlets who displayed great style include Selena Gomez, Jennifer Morrison (who also rocked a sexy black dress with sheer paneling), and Jennifer Lopez. We can’t wait for the next red carpet!
Selena Gomez is, no doubt, an up-and-coming Hollywood A-Lister. She began her career with Disney Channel, which sky-rocketed the young starlet to fame, but has continued to stay on the entertainment scene even after her career with Disney has come to a close. She’s recently blossomed into a style icon as well, and here at Lady Lux- we’re loving it. While she’s often pictured in sexy luxury swimwear, we figured we would feature some of our favorite patterns she’s been spotted in. Then, we’ll show you how to get Selena’s look using your own designer swimwear.
Selena’s first look features one of our favorite patterns for spring- floral. While Selena’s floral pattern features a lot of oranges and greens, Lady Lux wanted to brighten up the look with bright pinks and aqua- which screams springtime to us. The Secret Escape Dress has a similar breezy, casual look that Selena’s dress has. If you’re just looking for a standard swimsuit, however, you can opt for either the Floral Fantasy bandeau or the Secret Escape bikini- both of which feature the same lively pattern as the Secret Escape Dress. Overall, Selena’s look is kept minimal, with light makeup and swept back hair. Accessorize with beachy wedge sandals like Selena’s and throw on a sexy long necklace too. If you’re feeling daring- try a body chain for a similar, even sexier option instead of the long necklace!
The second look of Selena’s is definitely more of a sexy, nightclub ensemble. The sexy bustier top is completed with a black skirt with a thigh-high slit. For a similar sexy graphic pattern and cut- try the She’s Got A Way bikini. The sexy pattern is completed with gold hardware, which is reminiscent of the gold stitching in Selena’s bustier. The pattern also comes in a monokini- Love Bound. To complete your look, layer on a maxi skirt similar to Selena’s for walking around poolside. Dramatic eye makeup and bedhead waves will finish off the sexy, nightlife look.
