Well, unlike the pizza guy, Oscar fashion didn’t exactly deliver. (What was up with the pizza gag? It just didn’t work.)
There were others who were nicely dressed, but just weren’t best dressed material. Nice, but just not there. Kind of like Ellen’s performance.
OK. You’ve probably read enough recaps of the show as a whole and fashion in particular. So, let’s make this brief. These lovely ladies and Brad Pitt looked great last night.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum did look like a fairy & I liked it!
Angelina Jolie sparkled while breaking her own fashion mold.
Isla Fisher looked elegant at Vanity Fair’s after party.
Not a fan of her Oscar dress, but Anna Kendrick’s
Vanity Fair’s after party dress was hot.
Who did you think was best dressed?
Before I’m too late to the party, I wanted to share my list of best dressed from the Golden Globes!
It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a best dressed, and I’ve missed it. It’s always fun combing through the photo galleries looking at everything and really being able to assess it. There’s just no way I could sit through the red carpet shows, but galleries are a few quick clicks to the next person.
Overall, I felt like there were more bad looks here than good looks. And, it seems odd to me that none of my picks from the Golden Globes have made my previous best dressed lists. Welcome, fresh meat!
As I clicked through Just Jared’s gallery, I didn’t notice many glaring trends on the red carpet. There were some color similarities and some metallic accents, but nothing I saw enough to consider it a trend from the show. So, without further ado, here are my favorites in no particular order:
Tina Fey & Amy Poehler
Chris Hemsworth & Elsa Pataky
Who did you think was best dressed?
Did you know the Academy Awards were last night? I did, but I still ended up watching The Emperor’s New Groove. Listen, there was no way I was going to keep the little one entertained when I’m barely holding on watching that stuff. (Remember? Dry, boring, and haven’t seen the movies yet.)
I’m sad I missed Jennifer Lawrence being her loveable self. Seriously, I can’t get enough of her lately, and I don’t think I’m the only one. There must be about half a million gifs of her last night, AND they aren’t all of her falling down. Love her!
And, I’d also like to point out the gif showing Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper rushing forward to help her up when she fell. I always think you can tell a lot about a person’s character by the immediate reaction to someone in need.
Seriously! So handsome and gallant! But J.Law picked herself up and even seemed to laugh at herself. I think we could be BFFs. I need that to happen (like now). (Gifs via)
To make up for not watching the show or the Red Carpet last night, I checked out the HuffPo Style page to see as many of the looks as possible. Of course, there were a handful of disappointments, but overall, I thought this was the best showing so far this awards season.
What did you think of the show? How about the Red Carpet? Best Dressed? Do you love Jennifer Lawrence as much as I do?
To read more of my thoughts, follow me on Twitter. For more book reviews, books I’ve read and books I want to read, find me on Goodreads. And of course, don’t forget to check out my Pinterest to see all the craft and home decor projects I’ll probably never do and some cool book and social media pins.
Did you watch the Grammy awards show last night? Unlike other awards shows (Oscars & Golden Globes, I’m looking at you!), I actually watched the entire Grammy show. Of course, it helps that a large portion of the “boring” awards are handed out/announced before the show and it ends up being a concert with a great variety of artists, but let’s not get into that!
Last night was such an interesting night for fashion. Grammy wardrobes are usually more daring but thanks to the poorly timed e-mail from CBS, attendees were requested to tone it down! For lack of a better term, the memo’s reference to covering up “female breasts” gives me douche chills. And on to the poor timing of the announcement. How many attendees waited until the week of the event to pick their outfit? Because of that, I really don’t have any thoughts on poorly dressed people. It seems a little unfair to judge when I don’t know if what they actually wore was what they had planned out.
So that means I’ll just move along to the good looks.
These two look really good together. Most men couldn’t pull off wearing
a scarf like that and still look cool, but Sting can!
Both Allison Williams and Rihanna look elegant.
Men on the Grammy red carpet just look so much better than men
on the other red carpets.Those musical men know how to dress!
And Solange Knowles just looks fantastic!
The colors, the cut and the hair are great!
Yes, all of Maroon 5 are on my best-dressed list!
They look so great and cohesive without being too matched.
So, who was on your best-dressed list? What did you think of the wardrobe memo?
The SAG Awards were last night. I easily found a great red carpet slideshow at Gossip Cop, but it really wasn’t so easy to find some looks I like. I know it’s January, and I admire that a lot of the women didn’t rush out to tanning beds to get a nice glow. However, that doesn’t excuse too dark lipstick and fabric colors that made their porcelain skin look a little more pukish.
Sheer florals were still big on the red carpet. Some looked better than others. A couple women decided to wear ankle length dresses. The result was more stumpy than classic. The other thing I really noticed were improperly fitted dresses. Some busts were squeezed while others’ stomachs were squeezed. I think a few tailors might have lost clients after these dresses.
Well, that’s enough for criticism; here are my favorites from the night:
More detailed images can be found at Gossip Cop.
Do you like my best dressed? What did you think of the dresses?
I really love these posts! They are so easy; yet, the topic is something that does have a large impact on the United States (whether we like it or not). Fashion is, was and will always be important at least in it’s ability to somewhat reflect the current state of our culture.
Before I actually get to my favorites, I wanted to talk about one thing: boobs! They were everywhere. The fashion tape industry must be making bank after the Golden Globes.
So, here they are, my favorite looks from the Golden Globes:
(minus the furry pet)
What do you think of my list? Would you add or subtract anyone?
