The Red Carpet Review Of the 2015 GLAAD Awards

On March 21, 2015, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) held its 26th annual media awards ceremony.  These awards honor TV shows, films, musicians, journalists, and others who have fairly portrayed LGBT individuals and the community overall.  This year, there were 144 different nominees across 31 categories.  The ceremony was held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.  The winners, presenters, and attendees were, as you’d expect, dressed to the nines.  Here are a few of the fashion highlights of the evening.

The 2015 Vanguard Winner – Kerry Washington

Presenter Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia De Rossi made a splash on the red carpet.  DeGeneres wore a classic black tuxedo jacket that she paired with a dark blue shirt.  But while the talk show host certainly looked good, all eyes were on De Rossi and her backless black gown that was almost see-through in places.  It had a slit up to her thigh and a long train.  Later in the evening, DeGeneres presented the Vanguard Award to De Rossi’s Scandal co-star Kerry Washington for her work in promoting equal rights for all.

Washington, of course, looked incredible in her two-tone gown by Hellessy.  The red top, which left her arms bare and had a plunging neckline that reached down to her waist, was complimented by the dark purple of the skirt.  But most people will remember what she had to say during her speech.  Instead of simply saying thanks, she spent her time on stage talking about representation in the media, showing exactly why she was receiving such an important award.

Brad Goreski, star of the Fashion Police, continued his tradition of wearing a very different type of outfit.  In this past, he’s walked the red carpet in bright yellow and, later, a multicolored plaid.  This year, though, he went with a simple brown jacket, white slim fit tuxedo shirt, and black tie that, on their own, would have been very unremarkable.  But then he added butterflies all over his suit jacket and pants.  He definitely drew attention!

Zoe Saldana, star of Avatar, Star Trek, and Guardians of the Galaxy, wore a form-fitting red number with a pleated-hem skirt.  The dress featured cap sleeves that left most of her arms bare.  She paired the frock with a pair of bright red heels that matched perfectly.

Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan both looked great in black.  She wore a short black skirt and a semi-sheer black top, while he chose a black slim flit tuxedo with a white shirt and black tie.  He wore traditional black tuxedo shoes, but she went with a pair of strapped sandals that left more of her foot bare.

Finally, there’s Samira Wiley.  It’s hard to find anyone from the GLAAD awards who could follow her look.   The actress currently appears in Orange is the New Black, but her color of choice for this event was a dark purple.  The long gown featured a slit up one side, letting her show off her intricate sandals.

GLAAD will host its next awards ceremony on May 9 in New York.

Red Carpet Fashions from the Roast of Justin Bieber

On Saturday, March 14, Justin Bieber got his Comedy Central roast.  The event was actually something Bieber asked for, and it was held in honor of his 21st birthday (although it was a late gift since his birthday was March 1).  Kevin Hart served as the roastmaster.  Celebrities who took turns roasting Beiber included Hannibal Buress, Martha Stewart, Jeffrey Ross, Snoop (Dogg) Lion, Ludacris, Chris D’Elia, Shaquille O’Neal, Pete Davidson, and Natasha Leggero.  In addition to getting in their digs on the young singer, celebrities took the opportunity to show off the latest additions to their wardrobes.

How Justin Bieber Set the Stage

All eyes were on the Biebs, of course, and some probably expected to see him in saggy pants and a T-shirt.  But he selected a tailored blue suit, a nice white collar non-pleated tuxedo shirt, and a simple black tie for the occasion.  Some commentators felt he was a little too reserved in his outfit, especially since it so closely matched the stage background.  He did add a splash of color with his pink and red striped socks, though.  While some celebrities haven’t always seemed to enjoy their roast, Bieber laughed and smiled during many of the jokes.  He even returned a few during his speech at the end, which many describe as surprisingly heartfelt.

While Bieber’s outfit was subdued, Snoop Lion (as the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg is now going by), mixed skinny jeans with a shirt that featured a printed design on the sleeves.  He topped it off with a grey checkered bowtie, necklace, and a pair of black Chuck Taylors.  It may not have been black tie, but it was unique.

Other Comedians Caught People’s Attention, Too

Actress/comedian Natasha Leggero chose a cute, knee-length rose gold sleeveless dress for the occasion.  The shiny fabric caught the light, and her shoes perfectly matched the dress.  She added a few simple bracelets to complete her look.

Comedian Fortune Feimster continued the tradition of women looking amazing in suits with her silver tuxedo jacket, black shirt, and black tie.  She wasn’t on the stage this time around, but she certainly enjoyed her time in the audience, sending out several Tweets about the event.

Kevin Hart got in his own digs on Bieber while introducing the other roasters and making sure the roast didn’t get too out of hand.  He did so while wearing all black – black jacket, shirt, pants, shoes… everything.  But the fact that it was all tailored and fit perfectly made it look great, of course.

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had a great time on stage, laughing at many of the jokes and taking his own time in making fun of the guest of honor.  He wore a pair of black formal tuxedo pants, white shirt, and a black jacket with white spots all over it.  He topped it off with a black tie that had white stripes in it.

The Roast of Justin Bieber will air on March 30, 2015, on Comedy Central.
