Top Two Fashion Moments of 2014

On the eve of the new year I wanted to take a look backwards at my two most memorable fashion moments of 2014. These two looks stood out to me from the year as major "moments". There were many beautiful dresses that walked the red carpet in the last year but when I sat and thought about it these two were stand outs.

One of the most stunning statements was Lady Ga Ga in a luscious blue velvet gown (by Brandon Maxwell) with a matching turban and one half glove. The dress is complete with a pocket and a 6 foot long train cascading from her shoulder! Old Hollywood glamour re-styled current. I adore how chic and sophisticated this is.

Sarah Jessica Parker made a major style statement at the 2014 MET Gala wearing a gorgeous gown by the late Oscar de la Renta.

To me she was the ultimate Couture Cinderella in this gorgeous gown, a hybrid paying tribute to the nights honoree, designer Charles James and to Mr. De La Renta.  Another example of fashion's past being presented in a new and relevant way. From the front, the ballgown paid tribute to the night’s honoree designer, Charles James,

but from the back, it was all about de la Renta: She had him “sign his name” across the train, which was designed to look like a dress form. “I said to Mr. de la Renta, Please let me use scarlet embroidery thread and flash your name across the back,” Parker said at the time. “It was my idea. He would never in a million years have done it, he’s far too modest.” (as reported by PeopleStyleWatchMag).

 Every Detail stunning, the jewels, the gloves, the hair!

The Hair was exquisite

Who tops your list?
