Best & Worst Dressed: The 2014 Glaad Media Awards

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.

Wilson Cruz


Lupita Nyong'o

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.

Maria Menounos

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.


Maria Menounos

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.


Honorable Mentions

Now since this was a quickie post I won't go into all of my favorites, but here are the rest of my picks.

Perceived Style

My name is Kevin Kamari Foreman but you can call me Kam for short. I am a New York based up and coming designer/stylist. The idea to begin blogging about fashion came about over a glass of wine with a designer friend of mine Kenny M. at the end of 2013. I was showing him some of the looks I had put together for my birthday when he turned to me and said - "you have a good eye... maybe you should try getting into fashion yourself." That's when Perceived Style was born. I have an obsession with classic American prep, bodybuilding, grooming, beauty products, and fashion in general so it was a good fit for me. Before my blogging days I used to be very depressed, very overweight, self conscious, and constantly self-defeating myself. Fashion helped pull me out of that. It taught me to live life, love the skin I'm in, and care about what's on it. So when I was creating the blog it was easy to decide what it would be about. The main focus of Perceived Style is to inspire people to be comfortable in their own skin, to smile more, and to care more about their overall appearance using tips and photos. Job History: I used to work at BFCU in bethpage long island. Now I am the creative directior/CEO for Perceived Style and a freelance menswear designer as of June 2014. Education: I went to Farmingdale College for 2 years then moved to Hofstra for the last 2 years. I presently am taking continuing classing in blogging, fashion writing, and design. Interests: Art, Fashion Shows, Menswear, Shopping, Photography, Womens Fashion, and Food/Movies.
