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?

Today’s post is short and sweet as I want to start/finish this big paper before the weekend! (Wish me luck…) This morning when I woke up it was 19 degrees outside. My alarm hadn’t gone off yet, but I was awoken to the sound of multiple roommates cursing the fact that our pipes were frozen and they would be unable to shower before class. And then the smoke detector starting going off. And then I really needed to leave and go to class. Only fittingly, as soon as I got there the girl sitting next to me proceeded to announce to the whole class that she had whooping cough and the doctor told her she’s been contagious for the last 2 weeks. Um, thanks. Let’s just say today has basically been NO BUENO.

Luckily it’s supposed to be in the 70s again by Monday and I hope the warm weather is here to stay. I was just not meant to be a snow bunny and I already have spring fever. Here’s something I saw online recently that I can’t wait to sport around, the only problem is… how will I ever choose between navy or tan??

Old Navy shirts, $14.50. Perfection. Continue reading
