It's become common practice for big musicians like Ariana Grande and Beyonce to suddenly drop new songs (and sometimes whole new albums!) on social media. They give no warning. They give no hype. One day, suddenly, the new songs or album are just there for all ears to hear. Who needs hype, anyway, when you're as big as Ariana and Beyonce? Get ready, because Ariana Grande recently did just that, surprising fans from across the world.
On Tuesday, August 2nd, the gal with the most perfect ponytail ever simply posted, "love you" on Twitter. With that message was a link to her Soundcloud page. Because, what else do you need to say when you're Ariana Grande?
It's no surprise that Ariana Grande took our award for best dressed at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards - she always looks stunning, from the stage, to starring on Scream Queens, to every red carpet she's ever walked on. But, her look for the 2016 MTV Movie Awards was just stunning. And, it's not only her gorgeous dress that below us away - she performed a stripped down version of "Dangerous Woman," and it was dangerously good!
In the solo performance, Ari showed of her incredible range, leaving the whole audience in awe over her voice, the beautiful silky pink strapless gown she wore, and that pretty white fur stole. The look was extra special, because, as MTV pointed out, Ariana seemed to be channeling Marylin Monroe's bright pink look from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Ariana may not have gone 100% Marylin when it came to her hair, but she did trade in her signature high pony tail for a low one.
Of course, one of the reasons that we loved Ariana's 2016 MTV Movie Awards look is because it couldn't be more prom perfect! See three of our favorite pink gowns to take a cue from Ari's look below. Continue reading →
The Grammys 2015 Red Carpet were full of so many unique looks this year! From Kim Kardashian's golden plunging dress (bath robe?), to Gwen Stefani's funky jumpsuit, to Taylor Swift's high-low dress, the looks spanned the spectrum this year. All of the looks were incredible, but there four celebrity outfits, in particular, that we are obsessing over because they are also perfect looks for Prom! Check our favorite celebrity Grammys outfits below, and how you can rock them for Prom 2015.
As everyone knows, Miley Cyrus is known for her daring, provocative looks. So, we were pleasantly surprised to see her dressed in an elegant black gown on the Grammys 2015 red carpet. Her black gown featured cut-outs all along the side of the dress, making it the perfect combination of sexy and classic.
Cut-outs are very on-trend right now, so this is one look that's super easy to copy for prom. Get her v-neck look with large side cut-outs with Sparkle 71454. It's a jersey gown with beaded halter straps that extend to criss cross the open back. Beaded trim accents the waistline to create side cut-outs, and a side slit and small sweep train finish off this sexy look.
For slightly smaller cutouts and a more simple, classic look, go with La Femme 21160. It's an elegant net jersey dress with a gathered bodice and cutout straps that connect in back.
Ariana is always all about looking cute, bubbly, and girly... and basically... perfect. Of course, the 2015 Grammy Awards red carpet was no exception! She looked like an elegant princess in her one shoulder white gown and signature pony tail.
Rock a white one shoulder gown with some sparkle like Ariana with Blush 9780. Beaded illusion rocks in this sophisticated, yet alluring dress. Sexy jewels rock this one-shoulder as it flows into a stunning sheer back. Another band of illusion diagonally drapes your figure creating a brilliant dance column.
For a more flowy white one shoulder gown with a touch of silver sparkle, go with Jovani 6919. It's a one shoulder chiffon gown with a sweetheart neckline and jeweled embellishments at the waist and neck.
From music to fashion, at 56 years old, Madonna is still always about doing her own thing, and this year's Grammys proves it! The musician had all eyes on her as she confidently walked the Grammys red carpet in a short and sexy black lace and nude number.
Lace is one of the big Prom 2015 trends, and Madonna wore the trend like none other! To bring elements of her black lace and nude look into your prom or other formal event outfit, we especially love Tony Bowls TS11467. It's a strapless dress with slightly curved neckline, deep center V with illusion inset, boned bodice with lace appliques, and lace covered slim skirt. We especially love how this cocktail dress incorporates the corset look from Madonna's outfit!
To get Madonna's look with a little bit of fringe, we love Hanna S 27912. It's a strapless sweetheart Venice lace cocktail dress with heat set stone on the bodice and an Ostrich feather skirt. This is a great option to go a little more more on the fun and flirty side of Madonna's look!
To get Madonna's Grammys look in a more traditional long prom gown, go with Panoply 14659. It's a two piece short dress with a top that has cord beaded lace appliques on nude lining with an illusion nude neckline. The separate skirt has a satin waistband, and a corded beaded lace appliqued short skirt with a removable tulle back flounce skirt. This dress lets you go short and sexy like Madonna, or long and elegant on-the-go!
Last, but certainly not least, Tay! Taylor Swift is always a red carpet favorite, and the 2015 Grammys was no exception. She looked Taylor perfect in her ombre teal high-low gown! We especially loved how she matched the bold colored dress with even bolder pink heels! What a perfect color combo!
To get some green/blue ombre like Tay in your prom dress, go with La Femme 19467. It's a stunning sweetheart dress with a tiered high low skirt and ombre dyed fabric. The bodice features criss cross ruching and small iridescent stones trimming the neckline.
For more of a halter style top with an over skirt like Taylor's dress, check out Sherri Hill 9743. This sexy two piece dress features a chunky beaded bodice with a choker style neckline and a short beaded skirt with a soft chiffon over skirt.

One of the most popular award shows is just around the corner, but it isn't the one where big speeches are made and tears are shed. Instead, it is the show of laughs and fun, and where coveted trophies of "Moonmen" are given out. Yes, the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards will be on August 24th, and the nominees have officially been announced! This year's nominees include some awesome collaborations, as well as your favorite and pretty expected musicians! We are hoping the show will be a blast, but as far as the nominees go, there are no major surprises, just super hits!
The 2014 VMAs nominees for Best Video of the Year include Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX for "Fancy," Beyoncé ft. JAY Z for "Drunk In Love," Pharrell Williams for "Happy," Sia for "Chandelier," and Miley Cyrus for her outstanding hit "Wrecking Ball."
The top ladies in music who continue to take the world by storm include Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX with her hit "Fancy," which is also nominated for Best Female Video. Iggy is nominated twice in the category for Best Pop Video for "Fancy" and her collaboration with Ariana Grande in "Problem." Ms. Grande is also nominated twice for "Problem" having a shot at Best Female Video as well. Way to go ladies! Beyonce, Lorde, and Katy Perry also join in the category for having nods for Best Female Video! Should be a very close vote in this category and we can't wait to see who the winner is!
One of the more interesting categories announced was for Best Video with a Social Message. We love this category because it honors the artist not only for his or her musical talent, but for spreading a positive word to young people everywhere. The 2014 VMA nominees for this category are Angel Haze ft. SIA with "Battle Cry," Avicii with "Hey Brother," Beyoncé with her song "Pretty Hurts," J. Cole ft. TLC and "Crooked Smile," Kelly Rowland with "Dirty Laundry," and David Guetta ft. Mikky Ekko with the song "One Voice."
We loved the awesome collaborations that took place this year and we are really looking forward to see which artists will bring home the Moonman for Best Collaboration of the Year. It is tricky when one artist is great, but when they pair up with someone else amazing they really create phenomenal music! Will Ariana Grande ft. Izzy Azalea beat out Katy Perry ft. Juicy J. and "Dark Horse?" Or what about Beyonce ft. Jay Z for "Drunk in Love?" How will we ever tell? All we know is the show is going to be great and we are counting down the days to see the fashion, performances, and unexpected!

Dresses with sheer bodices and lace detailing have been really popular for Prom 2013, and it was certainly a style to watch at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, too! The BBMAs were held on Sunday May 19th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and our favorite looks on the blue carpet (yes, blue...not red!) were worn by Ariana Grande and Jennifer Morrison. They both looked so stunning in black sheer and lace pieces that we decided to dedicate our Billboard Music Awards post to them! Check out what they wore below and how you can get their looks for your next formal event.
Ariana Grande, who plays Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon TV show Victorious, wore a dress from one of our favorite designers, Jovani! A fun and flirty strapless little black dress, Continue reading →
