Red Carpet to Poolside Designer Swimwear: MTV Music Choice Awards

MTV Video Music Awards Fashion

2013 MTV VMA Red Carpet Best Dressed

 

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.

 

Drive Me Wild Designer Monokini

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.

 

Truly Madly Deeply Designer Bikini

Truly, Madly, Deeply Bikini by Lady Lux

 

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.

Taylor Swift Pops in Bright Prints

 

Best known for her lively pop tunes and cute-as-a-button personality, Taylor Swift is the epitome of a young star. Her style is, without a doubt, all her own. Often pictured in quirky graphic tee’s and breezy dresses, she certainly doesn’t like to stay within a specific bubble when it comes to styling herself. That statement holds true to her designer swimwear. Her taste in swimwear is unique in that she clearly draws inspiration from retro pin-ups. We want to show you how to get her retro swimwear looks using your Lady Lux suits.

 

 

The best way Taylor chooses to stand out when it comes to her day-to-day style as well as her luxury swimwear, is through her selection of bold patterns. Her most favorite? Stripes. The stripes are a direct reflection of her pin-up inspiration as well as nautical influences (also pin-up related). For a flirty, nautical look like Taylor’s, try Ready Or Naut. The bows and ruffles add extra flirty details like Taylor’s suits.

 

 

Like we mentioned above, Taylor loves any sort of feminine detail- especially in her swimwear. Polka dots, florals, bows, ruffles- she rocks them all. Floral Fantasy is a great option if you’re trying to re-create a feminine look Taylor would wear. The cut of the suit is a retro bandeau-style push-up. The wide-set straps create a retro neckline, the floral pattern is ultra-feminine, and the luxury hardware completes the glam look.

 

Would you dare to go bold and rock a retro beach look like Taylor? Or would you be more likely to play it safe with a basic solid triangle bikini?

Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Report

 

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!

Taylor Swift Wow’s in Fresh Spring Colors

 

Now that it’s May, spring is officially in full bloom. From florals to pastels, there are so many great spring trends that are so youthful and fresh- it definitely puts you in the appropriate mood for the season. Taylor Swift is just one of the young starlets out there who seems to always look youthful and fresh- not just in her designer swimwear, but in her day-to-day routine. We love the colors that are trending for this season- lavender and coral. Not only has Taylor been seen wearing these shades numerous times, but we’ll show you how to get the look with Lady Lux Swimwear.

 

 

Lavender is just one of the many colors we’re obsessed with for spring. It’s a color that takes some confidence to wear and pull off. Taylor Swift has been seen in this youthful shade multiple times- at events as well as just strolling around. There are so many great options to pull off this color using your luxury swimwear. Our favorite is the Heaven Can’t Wait monokini- which is a flattering cut for just about anyone. There’s also the Heaven Can’t Wait bikini and the Heartless bandeau. All of which feature a fun snakeskin print on the lavender- adding just a bit of an edge to the swimwear.

 

 

Taylor is known for her old-Hollywood femininity. What’s more feminine than a girly shade of coral? Taylor seems to love all shades of coral. The brightest shades resemble the Pretty Young Thing bikini as well as the Lost In Love bikini while the softer shades resemble the Melt Away bikini. Either way, there isn’t a color more universally flattering than coral and, it too, is great for spring!

 

Whether you’re pulling off these colors in your day-to-day clothing or in your Lady Lux Swimwear, remember to fully accessorize from head to toe. That will complete your feminine look with these feminine colors!

Ready or Naut Here Comes the Summer: Lady Lux in the Press

We’ve been featured in the Swim Book!  The hottest summer of your life is about to begin.  Ready or Naut captured the editors and they called this gem “Nautical Waves”!  When you look at the blue and white stripes you think luxury swimwear made fresh!  There’s something so refreshing about associating sexy designer swimwear to the deep blue ocean.  It makes a sailor blush and puts on deck looking delicious sipping a martini.

Designer swimwear in stripes is very attention grabbing and can do wonders to a woman’s body.  The stripes really work with elongating your figure and adding that fashion statement to your beach look.  It’s inspiring to also take Ready or Naut into a mix and match jive.  Think how you can go from having a white bottom to mixing it with the stripes top!  You really can have different looks that make it appear that you own multiple bathing suits!

Swim Book gave some sexy beach advice: go for the accessories.  You can incorporate some 40′s glamor just by the type of accessories you choose.  Think about throwing a pair of costume jewelery around your neck.  Think about some dangling pearls or charms in your necklace!  Pair it off with some wedge heels.  You can also take you beach look from day to night. Throw on a maxi skirt and a scarf and you’re ready to head out for some drinks by the beach.  Celebs like Mandy Moore and Taylor Swift are rocking the stripes.

Get your own spotlight by going with the essence of patterns.  Colors have the effect of uplifting your mood and taking you to your good memories.  Luxury swimwear can do just that.  Take your recollections of summer by going nautical and getting that retro bathing suit sexy on.  The summer will be hot I can feel it.
