E! News features DWTS judge - Carrie Ann Inaba wearing Val Stefani!

"Last night's finale episode of Dancing with the Stars proved to be an exciting show filled with fantastic performances and gorgeous costumes.

And while we can't wait to tune in tonight to see who will be crowned the DWTS champ, we're still reeling from Carrie Ann Inaba's stunning look while sitting pretty on the judge's panel.

We tapped her stylist Gabrielle Letamendi to get the scoop on her white hot ensemble and dazzling jewels.

Lamenti dressed Inaba in a beautiful white sequined gown by Val Stefani featuring a one-shoulder silhouette with a cap sleeve.

Carrie Ann's skin tone looks great in white and it makes such a statement on TV," she explained to us. "She wore a lot of silver this season, so we wanted to wait until the finale for this one."

"We had about 30-40 dresses to pick from, and the minute we had that dress on her, we both knew it was the one! It accentuates her hourglass figure perfectly," she added.

Indeed it did, and we have to say, Inaba stole the show in her elegant evening gown and sparkling jewels.

As for accessories, the former dancer wore a LaFonn ribbon ring from their red carpet collection, which featured an undulating ribbon motif and plenty of sparkle.

"LaFonn has such beautiful pieces that really read well on camera," she commented of her exquisite selection.

She also wore a striking set of stacked white gold diamond rings from Beverly Hills hot spot XIV Karats, where Letamendi pulls from on a regular basis.

So gorge!"

Engagement season is here and we are being asked to sketch what we think these soon-to-be celebrity brides will be wearing on their big day!

Bridal Guide Magazaine asks what we think Kelly Osbourne

"We're expecting one heck of a wedding dress from Kelly Osbourne! The E! Fashion star and daughter of rock god Ozzy Osbourne can pull off ultra-elaborate styles and wild looks with ease. She tends to favor vintage-inspired silhouettes and details.

In honor of her amazing hair color, Val Stefani sketched this purple and black gown for her wedding to chef Matthew Mosshart. (Fun fact: They first met at Kate Moss' wedding back in 2011.)

We think the 29-year-old would approve of the glamorous and goth vibe of this wedding dress, which showcases an illusion neckline and feather detailing. We can only hope that she'll honor her British heritage by wearing a fascinator!

MoonLight News - 2013, 26 November


In regards to Colombian comedian, Sofia Vegara -

"Sofia Vergaraknows what works when it comes to her fashion choices. "I still take advantage of the cleavage," the 41-year-oldModern Familystar admitted toE! News. "While I have it, why not flaunt it? Who knows how long I'll have it looking this way."

When the Columbian-born beauty marries businessman Nick Loeb, she'll choose a modern yet elegant wedding gown."I've been married before, so nothing too traditional or crazy," she's said.

The Val Stefanistyle pictured below features her favorite silhouettethe mermaid. The gown's ruffled skirt has more volume than what she normally wears on the red carpet, making it a wedding-worthy choice.

Like Jessica Simpson, we anticipate that she'll accessorize her dress with an incredible belt, along with some amazing statement jewelry. (We're still dreaming about theemerald, ruby, and sapphire earringsfrom Lorraine Schwartz that she wore to this year's Emmys — they cost a cool $7 million.)

Our designers were asked by The Huffington Post:

How To Pick A Dress That Complements Your Body Type

Posted: 02/21/2013 7:45 pmRead moreChoosing a Wedding Dress ,How To Choose a Wedding Dress ,Wedding Dress Body Type ,Wedding Dresses ,Wedding Dresses ,Weddings News

When you start your search for the perfect dress there are three key things to be on the look out for to finding "the one". You need to look for the perfect silhouette, proportion and fit. When you have these three elements it will make an impact and greatly improve how you look and feel on your big day.

1) Be open to trying all different types of silhouettes
Bridal gown silhouettes are not normal silhouettes you find in everyday clothing. Chances are you have never seen what a mermaid, trumpet, or ballgown looks like on you. When you see a dress in a picture it may not translate as to what looks good on your body shape. So be open to new silhouettes and be able to adapt and see what silhouette enhances your shape, then you will look and feel your best on your big day.

2) Understand your body's proportions
Choosing the right proportion goes together with the perfect silhouette for your body. Finding the silhouette with the perfect proportion for your body will help emphasize areas you want to show off, and minimize others. If the proportion is not correct to your body it can be unflattering.

Look at the gown in relation to your whole body, from the top of your shoulders to your feet. Divide your body into thirds from your shoulders to your feet. For example if you are pear shaped you do not want to have a gown on that cuts your body in half emphasizing your hips. Instead you want something elongating such as an A-line silhouette or trumpet silhouette, which will draw attention to your waistline and balance out your shape. If you are petite you should try to wear something that is elongating. A ballgown silhouette will be overwhelming for your shape because the width of the skirt will make you appear even shorter and disproportionate to your height. If you choose a mermaid shape the lines will create the illusion of being taller because of the long waistline. An easy way to accessorize your look and emphasize your waist is to add a sash, which will help to give you a defined waist and hourglass figure.

Every woman has parts of their body she is most proud of. By finding the correct proportion and silhouette it will make your figure appear balanced and enhance the best parts of your body, giving you confidence on your big day.

3) Make sure your dress fits
Alterations are the last step to making sure your wedding gown is flattering and worry-free. Skimping on your alterations is like getting a spray tan, but only on half of your body. Taking all the time to select your bridal gown and trying on different silhouettes and making sure the proportions are correct will all be lost if you do not get alterations done on your dress. You do not want to spend all night pulling up your dress because the bodice does not fit properly or risk falling down or tripping over your dress because the hem is too long. If you are getting a dress with straps or illusion sleeve detailing, you want to make sure they fit to your arms and are not falling off your shoulders. You want to enjoy your wedding day and look amazing in your pictures, so alterations are a must.
