SAG Awards | Red Carpet Rundown

Sarah Hyland in a custom Vera Wang.  I love the detail on the top of this gown – it’s stunning.  Her hair and makeup are flawless!



Maria Menounos in Ramona Keveza. Hair, Makeup, Skin >>> FLAWLESS.  The fabric of the gown is lovely and it was tailored to perfection.  She looked incredible.


Keira Knightley in Erdem.  She looked so angelic and effortlessly beautiful.


Sophia Vergara in Donna Karan Atelier.  All hail the queen.  She can do no wrong.  Her red carpet style is always on-point.

Emma Stone in Dior Couture.  I think I’m in love!  She is the queen of making menswear feminine and elegant.  She looked amazing in her Balmain paint suit at the Golden Globes, but this is just lovely.  So unique.


Julianne Moore in Givenchy.  Two Words >>> Ageless Beauty.  It’s hard to beat a red head in emerald green.  Love this look!


Naomi Watts in Balenciaga

This past weekend 92 of Kentucky’s most beautiful young women competed for the title of Miss Kentucky County Fair.

Here are my 8 favorite evening gowns from the pageant this year. I apologize for the poor quality photos – I will update as soon as I can find hi res images. :)

Alex Beard, Miss Barren County Fair in Sherri Hill.  I love this dress! Between the beaded bodice and full, dramatic bottom, this dress has a lot going on, but Alex wore it beautifully. She has the perfect figure for this dress.

Andrea Renee Glass, Miss Metcalfe County Fair in Jovani. My favorite thing about this gown {other than the fact that it is white} is the neckline!  Andrea looked so elegant and regal.  The jersey bottom really complimented her amazing figure! It was definitely one of my favorites. P.S. this girl is one to watch – she is flawless!

Lindsay Ratliff, Miss Bourbon County Fair in Sherri Hill.  I dressed one of my clients in this gown for a pageant last year {the lovely, Amber Creed}.  It really is a showstopper.  The beadwork on the shoulders and down the back really sparkle under the lights.  Lindsay knew how to work the train – she looked incredible. <3


Manda Katherine Knox, Miss Powell County Fair in Jovani.  There are two things a girl needs to pull off this silhouette – a beautiful face and amazing body! Katie has both! I love the way this gown shows off her curves and the way it sparkles under the lights. A gorgeous gown on a gorgeous girl.  Styled by yours truly. Makeup by Ashley Chaney Smith. Hair by Shawna Hutchison.

Tori_MKCFVictoria Townsend, Miss Morgan County Fair in Sherri Hill. I say it all the time but I love a brunette in a white gown, and this gown is a classic.  The neckline looked so lovely on Tori and the silhouette is super elongating.  The simplicity of this gown draws all of your attention to her face – and ultimately, you want the girl to shine in the gown and the gown should never outshine the girl.  Tori looked gorgeous! Styled by yours truly.  Makeup by Ashley Chaney Smith. Hair by Kurt Jordan.

Rachel RallsRachel Ralls, Miss Hart County Fair, in a black and gold Tony Bowls gown.  This girl is so facially stunning and her gown looked incredible on her – perfect fit!  I think the MKCF stage/lighting did not do it justice because when I saw her up close it looked completely different! Love it!

Shelby_CourierJournalShelbie Pettey, Miss Adair County Fair in a gorgeous royal blue Jovani.  Her wardrobe is always “on-point!” This year was no exception.  Her body looked incredible, the gown color was perfect, and the beadwork was breath taking.  I love her entire look.  Shelbie was styled by the lovely Lacy York Cooper.


Montana Hale, Miss Jessamine County Fair wearing a custom Sherri Hill.  This gown looked AMAZING on her! She really looked like a life-sized, old hollywood glam Barbie….complete perfection! Styled by yours truly. Makeup by Ashley Chaney Smith.

Congratulations to the stunning Bria Hays, your new Miss Kentucky County Fair! I hope you have a fabulous year!
