Golden Globes Roundup

Golden Globes Roundup

It’s that time of year again! Awards Seasons got underway last night in Los Angeles with the most fun show of the year, The Golden Globes. And while our favorite funny gals, Amy and Tina, killed it once again, the red carpet was a bit all over the place. The good news for our bridal watchers? White, once again prevailed as a trend that seems to be becoming a huge mainstay for starlets who want high impact on the carpet. But for those looking for clearly defined trends in fashion and beauty, things were a little bit confusing. That’s why we are here to break it all down.

Golden Globes Roundup

Let’s start with our favorite style stars. While there wasn’t a true standout favorite for us this year, we loved Emily Blunt’s classic white Michael Kors. The actress looked fresh, comfortable, and totally on-point with her ethereal braided do and crisp bright turquoise jewels. Naomi Watts channeled Hollywood glam in an ultra yellow belted Gucci number and the mot fierce snake necklace. Paired with a bright red lip, her look was lovely, however we feel like we have seen her in this same hue before. But hey, when it works, stick with it! Dakota Johnson, the actress soon to be seen in 50 Shades of Grey and no doubt launched into super-stardom, surprised us with a delightful gunmetal Chanel Haute Couture gown that fit perfectly and looked like liquid metal. Sienna Miller, in Miu Miu was head to toe perfection in an unconventional, yet stunning beaded appliqué dress with a plunging neckline and perfect makeup to accompany her gorgeous and chic hairstyle.

Golden Globes RoundupOur favorite wildcard? That goes to Emma Stone in a to-die-for Lanvin jumpsuit that was both fun and perfectly matched her glam-tomboy style. We love that she went for something slightly daring ( this is after all the globes, where stars USED to take major risks.)

Sadly, we weren’t blown away by the hair and makeup with a few exceptions. Jennifer Lopez, emerged as our favorite look for beauty. We are happy to see her still channeling super sexy looks, and while she looked stunning, we couldn’t help but zone in on her flawless face.

The best of the rest? We loved seeing Jennifer Aniston with her hair up ( even though we don’t really understand the slick, wet hair look so many ladies were donning.) Jenna Dewan Tatum looked lovely in Carolina Herrera- from the color to the interesting shape, she is becoming one of our favorite to watch. The always impeccable Kate Hudson definitely wowed with a revealing Versace and red carpet staple Reese Witherspoon looked lovely in Calvin Klein, although it was a bit safe for most. And let’s not forget the fresh, Michael Kors pink gown worn by Gwyneth Paltrow, who didn’t walk the red carpet but nonetheless, wow’ed us when she went up to present an award. That dress certainly has us looking forward to warmer temps!

Ever the demure fashionista, she made a return to classic Hollywood style hot again with graceful white gloves to go with her elegant black gown. While the jury is still out on the gloves, her style is refreshing and there’s not doubt we all love seeing her striking beauty on the award show circuit.

All in all, it was another super fun night watching Hollywood glam it up. Stay tuned for more trend watching and details from the SAG and Oscars, coming soon!

Kimye Wedding Recap

Kimye Wedding Recap

In case you missed it, the NY Post printed a pretty scathing (some are calling it spot on and even clever) teeny tiny wedding announcement for the newly married Mr. and Mrs. West. While most papers and online mags had full-on sections devoted to the coverage here’s what the Post had the offer:

Kimye Wedding Recap

” Two jackasses got married in Italy Saturday.

Sex tape star Kim Kardashian,33, wed egotist Kanye West, 36, in a wedding opulent enough for

Florence’s Medici dynasty and tacky enough for reality TV.

They were both betrothed at Florence’s 16th Century Forte de Belvedere Castle.

Olympic Athlete Bruce Jenner walked Kim down the aisle.

The republic still stands.”

 Ouch. That’s some pretty serious shade. And while we get that these two and the Kardashians in general are way overexposed, we at least applaud their effort in giving the people what they love to see- beauty and over the top weddings. For us, it’s pure entertainment and we loved seeing some of the preliminary details ( the full scoop will be in this week’s People Magazine.)

So here is what we know and love. The bride wore custom Givenchy as did the groom and little Baby North. The gown was demure enough with it’s hand sewn Italian lace while also paying homage to Kim’s signature figure with it’s curve hugging silhouette and illusion cutouts at the sides. Kim wore her hair simply (our favorite hair look of hers in a long time) and accessorized with tasteful ( yet still huge) solitaire diamond earring which were a gift from her new husband. The bouquet was also super simple and tasteful and the guest list was kept at under 150 for an ultra intimate feel.

Kimye Wedding Recap

And while the circus of her last wedding was just as fun to watch, this one had the actual feeling of two real people (albeit insanely famous people) at the center. We can only imagine the countdown clock that has already begun to see how long this marriage lasts, and call us eternal optimists, but we think this wedding had the right things in mind to ensure that this time it lasts. At least more than 72 days… Okay, that was mean. So we’ll just end in saying love them or hate them, Kim Kardashian was beautiful on her wedding day and certainly these two have some serious high-end yet classic taste that we can all admire. Kim may have been born to be a bride, so we just hope the next time we see her in a wedding gown, it’s for a glamorous and over –the-top vow renewal!
