We’re pretty excited about the return of Big Morning Buzz Live to VH1 this week — it means there’s a whole parade of fashionable folks will be strutting by our office in the early morning, some of whom let us hound them for info on their getups for Style Seen. First up is Brad Goreski, the former assistant to Rachel Zoe who has now struck out on his own, both as a stylist to the stars and as a highly quotable reality TV star in his own right, on Bravo’s It’s a Brad, Brad World. He’s a pro at dressing people, so you wouldn’t guess that one part of the outfit he wore on the show Monday morning was bought at the last minute and another made him “a little nervous” when he put it on. Scroll down and we’ll tell you all about it.
Just the name of this party itself would give us stress! Imagine the pressure to look, well, hot, at the Us Magazine Hot Hollywood Style Issue bash. Some stars caved, like Lauren Conrad, who needs to fire her entire entourage — hairdresser, stylist and make-up artist — stat. Her bun looks heavier than her whole body, she’s got this weird geisha white powder thing going on with her face and her sloppy blouson-teeny skirt ensemble just isn’t working. Jessica Szhor also seems to have been inspired by her namesake Jessica Lowndes bra-baring ensembles. The lace doesn’t make it classy, ladies.
Who did make it work was Camila Alves who was ridiculously sexy in a fire-engine red strapless dress with lips to match. Carmen Electra looked like a blonde Sofia Vergara, and knocked it out of the ball park with a simple metallic shift. Sara Rue, Pia Toscano, Alexa Vega, Paris Hilton (who looked really demure), Brooke Burke and Petra Nemcova all stepped it up in the wardrobe department as well. We’d also like to say that the magazine’s “Style Icon of the Year” Jessica Simpson is getting there one ensemble at a time. Really, really getting there. Good for you, Jess! For the rest of the H’wood hotties who attended the bash (*ahem*, we didn’t exclude the guys), check out our gallery below. [Photos: Splash News Online]
