The Look of the 2012 Golden Globes

17 Jan

As a producing major, I love watching award shows that honor excellence in the cinematic arts. And let’s be real, the fashion isn’t exactly a turn-off either. Here are some of the night’s best hits and {and misses} from the 2012 Emmy Awards!

Love it:

Modern Family's Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang

Charlize Theron in Dior (nominated for Young Adult.) I love the asymmetry and unusual shape!

Claire Danes (nom'ed for Homeland) shows a daring back cut out in J. Mendel.

Like it:

Elle MacPherson in Zac Posen, loving how she pulls off the winter white.

Michelle Williams in Jason Wu. Not sure how I feel about the blue animal print, but the fitted maxi silhouette is perfection.

Modern Family's Julie Bowen in Reem Acra, displaying my favorite combo, "nude + sparkle." A very classic safe choice, but pretty nonetheless.

Leave it:

Zooey Deschanel (nominated for The New Girl) in Prada... but it kind of looks like an unused costume from an alien movie.

Kelly Osborne in Zac Posen... I apprecite the neo-futuristic vibe, but it's a bit too Jetsons for my taste.

Freida Pinto in Prada. This actress has a gorgeous body... why is she covering it up in a blue sack??

Among my favorite wins, aside from the fashion “yesses,” were Michelle Williams for My Week With Marilyn and Midnight in Paris for Best Screenplay. (Interesting fact: The Golden Globes don’t differentiate between original and adapted screenplay like the Academy Awards do, so this category is kind of a free-for-all.) Somewhat disappointed with George Clooney winning for The Descendants (I thought it was good but not great), and Meryl Streep winning for The Iron Lady. Although I really want to see it and I heard it’s great, there were several other phenomenal actresses nominated this year who I think deserved a shot, like Rooney Mara.

Did you watch the Emmy’s? What did you think of the fashion? What were your favorite movies and tv shows of the past year?

Oscar Dresses= Nude + Sparkle

11 Mar

Okay so I realize my commentary on Oscar dresses is a bit delayed. But, in my defense, I’m just now starting to truly appreciate some of the trends I saw walk down the red carpet. I should preface this by saying: I LOVE THE OSCARS. As a double major in theatre performance and film and television business, you can probably understand why my passion for the Academy Awards might border on full-on obsession. I had my ballot printed, my bingo marker, my popcorn, and my movie candy in hand and at the ready. While there’s not enough time in the day for me to ramble on about my opinions on who won and lost, (actually you should probably be thankful that unlike my boyfriend and roommates you all have been spared that diatribe…) I feel like this would definitely be an appropriate venue to discuss another favorite element of this awards show: The dresses.

By far my favorite trend I noticed were the light metallics and delicate nudes. Here are some photos I will definitely be using for inspiration this spring and summer. I love how simple yet glamorous this combo is!
