FAB LA Spotlight-Young Hollywood Awards Red Carpet Musings

Last week, I attended the Young Hollywood Awards at the Hollywood Athletic Club. Presented by Bing, the 14th annual award show continues its legacy and evolution as the premier event for honoring and celebrating the accomplishments of emerging young talent throughout the entertainment industry. Regarded as the "Oscars of Young Hollywood", this red carpet event is a launch pad for the future careers of actors, directors and entertainers. A must-attend for Hollywood's A-list, industry executives and fans alike, it draws extensive media coverage from national and international press.

I got to the red carpet before the celebrity arrivals so I had a couple of minutes to chit chat with friends and take in the moment. The red carpet faced Sunset Blvd, one of the busiest streets in Hollywood which led to many curious drivers slowing down to take pictures. A few fans stood off to the side with paparazzi sized cameras ready to snap away. I'm still a bit baffled by the red carpet phenomenon. It's incredible knowing that the event of having famous people pose for pictures becomes projected, magnified, and glamorized by a thousand when those pictures are disseminated by the media. I'm so grateful I live in LA, where I get to see and experience the behind the scenes ordinariness of the red carpet.

For the event, I channeled red carpet glamour and borrowed a curvalicious cocktail dress from La Femme. I felt like Christopher Columbus in this dress as many newfound curves were discovered that night. The ruching slimmed my tummy and perked up my chest and derriere while the cut perfectly complimented my height and body shape. My hot pink platform stilettos from Sole Society are one of my fav soles and I love wearing them with black dresses as the color contrast heightens the drama of the outfit. I wore my Celine cross-body purse to add an unexpected touch of vintage to the outfit.

Walking the red carpet is definitely a job in and of itself as the celebrities' every move and pose are scrutinized by the media. And then there are the interviews. So many interviews. It must be tough to look and sound perky and interesting when you have to answer the same questions over and over again. 

Alex Pettyfer looked quite dapper that night

 Ashley Greene is incredibly skinny and toned. The girl is all muscle, zero fat.

I'm not feeling Whitney Cummings' dress as the muted color washes out her skin tone.

I love Ginnifer Goodwin's vintage inspired Monique Lhuillier lace dress! Her hot pink lipstick and nails perfected the outfit. Josh Dallas's Mad Men-esque slick hairstyle completes his girlfriend's vintage look.

Aubrey Plaza and Chris Pratt from Parks and Recreation! The show is hilarious and tragically underrated.
