Best Red Carpet Looks from the E! People’s Choice Awards 2020

It’s been a while between outings for many stars, but today’s E! People’s Choice Awards offered a welcome opportunity for a return to red – or black in this case – carpet glamour.

Stars including Jennifer Lopez, Mandy Moore, Ellen Degeneres and Sofia Vergara turned out for the event held in Santa Monica and hosted by Demi Lovato, who took to the stage in a number of different outfits.

Among the winners was Tracee Ellis Ross who accepted the ‘Fashion Icon’ award dressed in a striking white Alexander McQueen dress with black halter harness.

“Tracee, do you take fashion to be your lawfully wedded wife? I do, I do!” she joked while on stage. “I cannot thank you enough for validating my shopping habit.”

Ross also thanked the magazine industry and the stylists she’s  worked with throughout her career, including Karla Welch, whom she called her “collaborator in rule-breaking.”

This year’s Fashion Icon Award recipient and STYLE cover star Tracee Ellis Ross leads the power suit brigade arriving in an effortless Schiaparelli suit, perfectly accessorised with statement gold earrings.

Continuing the power play was Jameela Jamil in a hot pink Christopher John Rogers power suit. And statement earrings and a floral brooch!

There were at least four different outfit changes for host Demi Lavato this year. From a sequinned Elie Saab gown, to this knock out bronze sequin jumpsuit.

Mandy Moore and her bold blue earrings were perfect. Her navy Brandon Maxwell jersey dress showed off her growing baby bump.

Like a Boss star, Tiffany Haddish (below) accepted the award for Female Movie Star of 2020 in a sassy floral dress by Prabal Gurung.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop Lands Downunder

For some time now, we have watched from afar as Gwyneth Paltrow established her influential lifestyle brand Goop in the US, including bemusedly absorbing such tidbits as gift guides with a $1200 Ouija board, health warnings around her Netflix show a US$75 This Smells Like My Vagina candle and other assorted controversies.

What started as a new-agey, clean and green health and wellness newsletter, has grown into a mega brand with a significant retail arm, but it’s shoppable content has mostly remained out of reach to NZ shoppers. 

That’s set to change with the arrival of the goop beauty collection at Mecca in NZ, initially available only via meccabeauty.co.nz.

The launch is intended to coincide with the Australian opening of Mecca’s new Sydney flagship in the city’s heritage Gowings building. The 1,800m new space spread over four levels is the biggest beauty emporium yet for the brand and the initial exclusive goop in-store stockist, although the brand will be available elsewhere in Australia and NZ via Mecca’s website.

The beauty offering encompasses a selection of high end active skin and body care – and one shampoo – formulated within predictably strict parameters, giving parabens, petroleum, phthalates, SLS, SLES, PEGs, TEA, silicones,artificial dyes or fragrances and is not tested on animals. 

The range available at launch includes:

  • Goopglow Mircroderm Instant Glow Exfoliator, $221,
    Goopglow 15% Glycolic Acid Overnight Glow Peel, $221,
  • Goopglow 20% Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Glow Serum $221, 
  • 5% Glycolic Overnight Glow Peel Light, $221, 
  • Goopglow Body Luminizer, $85, 
  • G.Tox Ultimate Dry Brush, $35, 
  • G.Tox Himalayan Salt Scrub Shampoo, $74, 
  • G.Tox 5 Salt Body Scrub, $71, 
  • Goopgenes All-In-One Nourishing Face Cream, $168  
  • Goopgenes All-In-One Nourishing Eye Cream, $97

The range will be available from meccabeauty.co.nz on November 27.
