I’ve hit more than my fair share of red carpets and while all are memorable in their own way, there are some moments I’ll never forget — mostly because I loved what I was wearing. It’s amazing to see the confidence you feel on the inside come out in photographs when you’re wearing something you love.
Below, five of my most memorable red carpet looks, aka some of my favorite outfits I’ve ever worn.
2014 Oscars in Alexander McQueen
I was pregnant in this, so that makes this look pretty memorable. Plus, the fact that I got asked to help countdown the red carpet for the Oscars was such a huge deal for me. It was an honor that I was even considered. I was really nervous, but really excited. I love this dress because it’s so simple, but the shoulders give it some edge and make it really fun. I was sitting down in my segment [for E!], so I thought this dress was perfect — I had a desk in front of me and you could really only see the top of it.
2009 MTV Video Music Awards
I thought THIS dress was perfect for the VMAs. I mean, isn’t it, though? It’s young, it’s fun — there’s not really a lot of places you can wear a dress like that. It was a vintage dress and I thought it was just so appropriate for an occasion like the VMAs where anything goes.
2011 Marine Corps Ball
I don’t get to wear long gowns very often, and this was one of the first times that I was able to. It’s always fun, kind of like playing dress up, when you get to wear these kinds of gowns. I love the belt with it — it really balances out the look and makes it edgy and cool.
2009 UNITE Unveiled: Gen Art’s Fresh Faces in Fashion Event
This was one of those nights where everything came together. The hair, the makeup, the outfit — this is a look I would even wear to dinner or to go grab drinks now. I loved that outfit. It’s simple, chic and really sexy.
Elton John AIDS Foundation 2014 Oscar Party
Balmain is one of my favorite designers and being able to wear something from the label was so exciting for me! I felt like this dress was sweet, but sexy at the same time. It was appropriate for going to an after-party, while still being pregnant.
