Golden Globe Fashion-Fashwon Review: only the cool dresses

16 Jan

I have been to the Golden Globes many times and it’s one of the most fun fun award shows around. Let me clarify that I have worked the Golden Globes, not actually been invited. I think it’s because the show & the parties are all in the same building and I have to say that it’s much more relaxed than the Oscars. People have more fun at the GG’s, where at the Oscars you need passes for every 5 feet and sometimes they expire by 12noon or 2 pm or 5 pm, and everyone thinks they are so important. Ugh! So I enjoy the Globes very much…once at the InStyle party I enjoyed it waaay too much, which is a story only to be told after a few pitchers of margaritas. Now lets talk fashion…I mean “fashwon”! It was one of the best fashion award shows I’ve seen in a long time, but still it looks like everyone just wears the same dress over and over; the strapless, the one shoulder, the drape, the ruching…it all looks too familiar. This time around I am only concentrating on the dresses I thought were cool. No “Best” or “Worst” dress from me cuz in 2012 I am doing my best to give love to all and not create bad karma because I have my fill already…although….no, I’m not going to do it. I am going to do categories which will start with:

1) WORK IT & COMMIT! These ladies had severe fierceness and didn’t give it up one second.

-Angelina Jolie in Versace…ok, I said I wasn’t going to do give a “Best” dressed but if I was going to…she might be it. She is the queen of the red carpet. I do wish that someone would ask her who she’s wearing and she would say “Ver-sayse”.

-Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann. Anyone who wears Haider Ackermann is the coolest person ever. Hopefully one day I can afford an ebay 75%off sale Haider Ackermann item like a button or a piece of string, which is all I can afford. You know Tilda is just the coolest regardless of what she wears, but I love how her whole look is committed to itself.

-Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci. She just knows how to work a piece of art on the red carpet. She really needs to give posing lessons to other un-named-bad-posing actresses on the red carpet.

2) I AM SO HOT IN THIS DRESS! These ladies are showing of their sexiness and feeling their sexy selves in a perfectly designed dress that transforms their public persona.

-Michelle Lea in Marchesa. Now Michelle Lea always dresses well for the red carpet, but here she is sizzling. She knows she looks amazing! I love that she took a chance with this partially sheer sequin dress.

-Emma Stone in Lanvin. I think of Emma Stone as a cute cool chick, but here she is sexy chic. She is giving fashion confidence.

3) SWEET N’ CHIC: lovely ladies giving fashion.

-Zoey Deschanel in Prada. Zoey is the ultimate cute girl and here she has taken it to a new fashion level. Her sixties inspired hair and make up (by Makeup artist Jorjee Douglass) go excellent with her custom made Prada retro-y dress.

-Romola Garai in Alessandra Rich. I don’t know who Romola is or the designer Alessandra- but I do now! What a great collaboration of “sweet & chic”. Romola is my new fave actress & Alessandra is my new fave designer.

-Busy Phillips in Temperely London. I love Busy in Cougartown and I love that she wore Temperely. She is so darn cute and this dress has a cool California chic feel that suits her perfectly (which is ironic because its a British designer). I wish she was my best friend…but only if she’s like her Cougartown character.

4) FANTASTIC DRESS: these are designs I just am in love with.

-Diana Argon in Giles Deacon. Super amazing cutting edge fashion. She looks great, and I hate to say it, but wish her hair/makeup/accessories matched a little little bit better with the dress. I love that she is a risk taker. This is a piece of art.

-Georgina Chapman in Marchesa. She IS Marchesa and represents is perfectly; soooo gorgeous.

-Jessica Chastain in Givenchy. I love this dress. I love her curves…not in love with her hair, but it’s ok since she is such a great actress & I love red heads.

There are a few others that I would put as some kind of honorable mention like Claire Danes & Charlize Theron, but I’ve been on this for a while now and I’m tired. I give big fashwon (you have to say it like you’re from texas, instead of saying “fashion”) star to all the above ladies & designers & stylists & hair & makeup. Thanks for being so fab!

American Music Awards 2011- a Fashion Tragedy…no stars

23 Nov

I’m sorry to say that my first post is about the very recent American Music Awards that was one of the worst red carpet fashion shows ever. I am only posting 2 pictures…no one else is worth mentioning. So the first pic is Justin B and Selena G: please, am I supposed to take these 2 seriously…maybe if I was pre-teen! Why does the stylist for these kids want to play dress up with them?? They look like they are in the junior high production of some James Bond movie. Poor Justin’s jacket doesn’t even fit him. Then there is the best dress of the night…but it looks horrible on the lady wearing it. Kimberly Perry (I have no idea who she is) is wearing a gorgeous Bottega V dress, but bless her heart, its too much for her. You got to learn how to work it Kimberly. Next time first watch ANTM or some RuPaul’s Drag Race. Not to mention that Emma Stone already wore the dress to the MTV awards…stylist needs to give you a discount. Everyone else was ok or blah. I do love Jennifer Hudson and now she’s skinny, but her dress looked like a leftover JLo dress. No stars for anyone.
