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!

Golden Globes RoundupBut perhaps the most talked about woman of the night, was Amal Clooney. 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!

Wedding Shops for the Holidays

We reported earlier about one of our favorite online retailers, Shopbop and their amazing selection when it comes to wedding boutiques.  With Christmas just around the corner and holiday gift guides abound, we have noticed a new crop of fabulous, must-shop wedding boutiques that are sure to invoke fresh ideas for your wedding day. And for those of you who sign up for their emails lists, there may just be a holiday discount code for you to use now on your wedding gear! Love it! Here are some of our favorites and a few things not to miss!

Net-a-Porter:  This luxury e-commerce site is no newbie, but their newly updated wedding boutique is about as fresh as they come. The Wedding Shop, as they call it, takes you from Engagement to Honeymoon in the most lust-worthy of looks. With an on-call custom bridal stylist at your service,  and designers like Jimmy Choo, Lanvin, Chloe, Vivienne Westwood and even J.Crew, to name a few this site has you covered. Along with hard to find favorites like Roland Mouret, they run the gambit on pricing by mixing super high-end with more reasonable splurges. They even break down your styling needs into categories like Mother of the Bride, The Bride, and Bridesmaids.  And this holiday, the deals for this online gem are no novelty either. Along with slashing prices for the end of the year, free shipping and gift wrap are just a few of the perks you can expect in the next month.

Nordstrom:  When Nordstrom has a shoe sale, you go. When they perfectly pick the sweetest crop of bridal fashion and accessories, you have no choice but to check it out.  The Wedding Suite is comprised of Nordstrom regulars like Theia, Nicole Miller, BCBG, Sue Wong, and Jenny Yoo along with choices in lingerie, gifts, and accessories.  If a reasonable off-the-rack look is what you’re going for- Nordstrom is your spot.

Zappos: It should come as no surprise that the leading online retailer for all things shoes has emerged as a go-to for wedding shoes as well. With a plethora of dresses for brides and bridesmaids and guests alike, this site takes you far beyond footwear. Oh yea, and they have that too. A perfectly selected shop of shoes for your big day.
