Fashion Critic: My Top Ten 2010 Emmys' Looks

Maria Menounos looks amazing in her custom made Ralph & Russo gown embellished with 15,000 swarovski crystals. Love the makeup and hairdo as well.

Lea Michele is a vision in her ruffled navy Oscar de La Renta. The star pairs her gown with gorgeous statement jewels and sexy curls. Perfect!

Kim Kardashian never fails to show her curves in the right way. Here she looks like a grecian goddess in her white and gold Marchesa, rightfully adding a braided soft updo that complements her look perfectly along with the gorgeous diamond accessories.

January Jones certainly provided us with some drama in her blue Atelier Versace gown. The dress is a masterpiece but i would have loved to see her pair it with some jewellery and different shoes, i feel these black heels don't do the dress justice. The hair is also too simple for this look. But nevertheless i would say this is one of the best Emmy looks.

Jayma Mays looks ravishing in this navy blue Burberry gown paired with gold jewels and a shimmering black clutch. Love the detail on the dress!

Anna Paquin arrived in the most unique dress of the Emmys. Her Alexander McQueen golden armored gown has this tough chic edge to it and stands out as a statement gown.

Even though this look has been done repeatedly, Clair Danes manages to give it a fresh and beautiful vibe. Her swarovski crystal Armai Privé gown along with her goegeous bronzed glow make her a shimmering vision! Behold those gorgeous lashes which Danes credits to Latisse!

I am usually not a big fan of Kelly Osbourne's red carpet choices but i have to admit she nailed it at the Emmys with this gorgeous Tony Ward gown that emphasized her tiny waist and makes her look like a dark mermaid. I am not loving the hairdo at all though, i wish she went with a softer do.

Jennifer Carpenter dazzles in her one shoulder dark sequined Oday Shakar dress. She kept everything else simple with just a pair of diamond earrings. Love the look.

Rose Byrne opted for a stunning Gucci gown. The gold trim and center slit give this gown a modern vibe. Kudos for her choice and for knowing how to accessorize it.

Trends: Fall 2010 pt 2: Fifties and retro dressing

Take cue from Mad Men as the runways were filled with midi full skirts and body hugging tops in a retro 50s style. This look can be modernized by adding sharp tailored jackets a la Dries Van Noten or accessorized in a modern way. We also saw corset body hugging dresses that emphasize the curves in Marilyn Monroe style at the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and Nina Ricci. At Isabel Marant, models were sent in capri rolled up jeans modernized by adding sharp shoulders or casual sweaters.

Wishlist: Oh Mon Dior!

These lace booties by Christian Dior combine two of fall's huge trends; lace and detailed heels. This pair is a masterpiece with a femme fatale vibe done in a classy way. It kind of reminds me of Dita Von Teese, maybe its the corset style way in which it ties up. This one is going right into my lust list for the fall shoes .

Label Love: Dannijo

Founded by sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder in 2008, Dannijo is a jewellry label that has soon found itself a cult following of celebs and fashionistas. In my opinion its one of the very few labels that can produce bling with class. The jewellry are an eclectic mix of metals that have the air of a tough chic vibe.

Clockwise from top left: Kara Dioguardi wearing Carmela necklace, Milla Jovovich wearing assortment of necklaces, Natalie Portman wearing Ora necklace, Sophia Bush wearing Gia necklace, Beyonce wearing Ruth Celia necklace

Here are some of my fav Dannijo pieces.

Style Crush: Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore seems to be sprucing up her style these days, I am really impressed by the number of outfits she has been sporting lately which seem to be taking a tough chic approach. This look in particular is gorgeous, I love the McQueen clutch which i have blogged about HERE before.

Beauty Notes: The best Hair treatment!

Morrocan Oil hair products have been my staple hair care since i discovered them. My favourite from this brand has to be their hair oil. A tiny drop of this magic bottle will do wonders for your hair. It really makes it soft and shiny. Plus it smells divineeee!!

Shopping with N: Fringe Jackets

I am obsessed with these boho chic jackets and they are proving to be a hot item during this month! There are so many ways you can wear them . Just take a cue from Kate Moss who has thrown hers over a blazer and jeans or Nicole Richie who looks divine in this gorgeous look. They can be worn day to night depending on how you accessorize them. My Pick would be this gorgeous Kite and Butterfly jacket available at Blush Boutique. The flower beading is gorgeous and the colour is easy to pair with simply everything. I got one for myself and i find myself wearing it all the time, and people stop me in the street to ask me where i got it from!  Get yours now and get obsessed !
For orders outside of bahrain send an email to , soon you will be able to order from the website :):)

Back !! (with some travel tips)

I really gotta apologize for lack of updates but my summer trip was loaded and spun around madly i barely had time to do anything. I promise i will make it up to you guys so stay tuned for the hottest updates !

I was actually in Mykonos and i have to say it was amazing! I have put my own little guide for anyone who wants to explore the city.

Places to stay:
  • Cavo Tagoo
  • Belvedere
  • Psarou (Nammos)
  • Sol y Mar

My  favs were Astra, Guzel and Space and of course the numerous beach parties are insane!!

Bars :

For the best views of the sunset Mykonos style head to Scarpa or Semeli in Old town and enjoy their amazing cocktails

Eating out :

Apart from the yummiest Souvlakies (Hint: Try Jimmy's) and Crepes that you will find in old town, here are my fav restaurants
  • Coo
  • Interni
  • Sea satin  ( You have to try the lobster pasta)
  • Nobu in Belvedere (you have to try the new style salmon and the yellow fish Jalapeno)

Old town is the main shopping place in Mykonos, with so many jewellry shops that range from funky to fine jewellry. You can also find Chopard, Hermes, Cartier and many other stores in town.
