It's time again for another Red Carpet Rundown! The awards show on the chopping block is the 2014 GLAAD Media Awards! For those of you who don't know what GLAAD stands for the acronym means; Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. They air the awards show once a year. The show serves as a platform to recognize and honor various branches of the media for their outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and the issues that affect their lives. Even though, the GLAAD Media Awards red carpet isn't as covered as some it still deserves a review of the best and worst dressed review. With that being said here's the next red carpet on the chopping block.
Next up on my best dressed list is 12 Years Of Slaves star Lupita Nyong'o. After receiving rave reviews about her outfits all season she brings this show stopper to GLAADS red carpet. This model turned actress looks stunning in this semi metallic gold and royal blue. The slight notes of green sing when paired with that clutch. The colors for the dress are not my favorite, but she makes the best dressed for fit alone. The royal blue accents on the side give her dimension, and slims her already perfect waist creating a dreamy hourglass look. Not her best look this year but certainly not her worst. All in all great job Lupita.
First up on the chopping block is the Noah's Arc star Wilson Cruz. Despite the fact that Perceived Style is about men's wear - I rarely have a man on my best dressed list. To me Cruz deserves to be listed here because his red velvet jacket is cut superbly. I love that it showcases his physique, and is fitted but not overly tight. Considering the color this look could've gone very "waiter in Manhattan", but he kept his styling wonderfully simple. Granted I would've loved a lapel pin or some basic rings, but his outfit sings to me among the men. Among the men dressed as men anyway. Either way bravo Wilson.
Last on my list is media correspondent Maria Menounos. Now some may say that this dress is a little too simple, but I love it. I always find that it's difficult to make black, and/or white stand out on red carpets. The length of the dress is just right, and feels age appropriate with coming off dated. I'm not crazy out her shoes but the overall effect feels right. Her saving grace here was the definitely the slight nod to casual wear GLAAD offers up. All in all it was a successful look.
Now since this was a quickie post I won't go into all of my favorites, but here are the rest of my picks.
