the red carpet season that was 2015
Mar 8th, 2015 by shallow

lupita nyong’o still commits no faux pas, emma stone sticks to being distinctively non-conformist, in my opinion something’s the matter with julianne moore’s style team, jennifer lopez goes back to showing some skin, taylor swift keeps up with her darling of the press look, and felicity jones deserves more red carpet credit than the media gives her.

my favorite: laura haddock, who was princess perfect at the bafta.
