Ooh La La, Nina! SAG Awards Red Carpet Stunner

This lady can do no wrong on the red carpet...Seriously.PopSugar

This lady can do no wrong on the red carpet…Seriously.

I watch The Vampire Diaries. Guilty as charged, and maybe I should feel shame in that. Maybe. But what I have no shame in, is admitting that I love watching everything  Nina Dobrev walks down the red carpet in, including this Elie Saab beauty at the SAG awards.

Everyone’s so pre occupied with what’s quote unquote, on trend, but this dress speaks volumes as to why you should just go with whatever works for you.

The great thing about this dress is that it’s conservative, yet in that hot pink it really makes a statement. Add to that a bit of transparency, which totally takes it to another level and gives it a vibrancy… I don’t care what people have to say about Elie Saab, all I know is you can’t go wrong in one of his creations.

You know who else you can’t go wrong with? Stylist Ilaria Urbinati. She just plain rocks it out every time.

Stay classy, Nina!

Lena Dunham’s Great Night in a Terrible Outfit

14 Jan

On one hand I love Lena Dunham‘s stance on showing the world that there is more than one body type  for women, yet she did do herself an injustice with her Golden Globes Zac Posen look.

Absolutely not Lena Dunham.Popsugar

Oh Lena (Le Sigh)
Popsugar

Too much material, not flattering for her figure, too dark for her skin tone and so on.

The dress isn’t the best mainly because it caused so much volume around her. One fix would have been to wear a similar frock with a decently indecent split in a lighter material or if she wanted to go heavy – go really heavy in a velvet.

While it was a kind of simple look, it totally overwhelmed her body and took a little away from her charming Globes moment. No, it’s not always about the dress but when you can’t help but focus on the distracting outfit, it takes the discussion away from the 2 Golden Globes she received.

And the shoes….

I couldn’t help but cringe every time I saw her walk. And I thought Louboutins were suppose to be fool-proof.

Remember ladies, if you get new shoes for a special occasion take a week to first stretch them, then to wear them around with socks and finally be as comfortable as possible strutting everywhere in them. Then, if you can’t accomplish wearing them for at least 3 hours before you have to tap out after wearing them all week – find another pair.

What’s worse is that they were kind of useless since nobody could even see them.

Fingers crossed for the next time Lena.

Halle Berry’s Golden Globes Faux Jamais

14 Jan
Halle Berry

She should have just gone naked…

I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much bad on Halle Berry.

This frock is a damn shame! Look at what it’s doing to her breasts… I missed her red carpet walk but I nearly          choked on my gin and tonic when she walked on stage to present.  How is it even possible that this dress makes her look like she has two different sized boobs? One a D-cup and the other an A-cup?

And the hair! A blast from the 90’s past.

This might not just be Halle Berry’s worst Golden Globe look but possibly her worst look EVER.

Kate Hudson Nears Perfection in Alexander McQueen

14 Jan

This dress is sinfully good but of course it is, it’s a McQueen.

There was more black at the Golden Globes than I expected but Kate Hudson‘s look was by far one of the night’s best.

A great fit for her small frame, with great detail and the low decolletage

gives it a nice little modern twist. If you are not part of the Small Cup Brigade, this probably wouldn’t be the best choice in cut for you… I’m not saying your body is wrong, I’m just saying it might not be right for this kind of dress.

It’s super feminine and perfectly sexy but as I tweeted during the show, respect the dress and do your hair.

While the messy do keeps the fun aspect, it’s all wrong for this look. If she had opted for a messy bun, let’s say, it would have been perfection but with the hair, cleav-age and her pale skin, you miss out on the dress’  beautiful neck detailing.

Kind of like buying Michelangelo’s David and throwing your dirty laundry all over it.

Is Kerry Washington having a fashion breakdown?

14 Jan

Look, I usually love Kerry Washington‘s looks but the last couple of times she’s walked the red carpet there’s always been something off.
Her Golden Globes look could have been wonderful- it was so promising in one of the nights IT colours, nude. It even had a hint of sheer in the cleave, which combined with the silver embellishments could result in a romantically beautiful dress.

However, those things didn’t quite gel in this look. The length is all wrong. it’s so awkwardly not long enough or short enough and I feel like there should be some kind of sleeve. It’s to bad.

Not. Impressed.

No Kerry Washington, just, no.JustJared

Lucy Liu needs to marry royalty STAT

14 Jan

There were a few stand out dresses at the Golden Globes but Lucy Liu in Carolina Herrera

is one for the fashion books.

If you’ve read any of my other posts about the Globes,you’ve probably seen a trend in my favourite looks – Simple, and this dress is no different.

I think the messy side braid was a great choice to go along with her very floral gown.Yes, let’s talk about the floral patterns – I hate them, ’til I love ’em. You know?

I like this one because it’s not a normal over flowery floral pattern… I mean,ya there are flowers but it’s in the vain of this year’s new trend, tapestry-which believe it or not isn’t always as appealing as sounds but by taking the idea and applying it to material, whole other level. What makes it is the fact there’s enough blue around the top to take away the busy.

This dress isn’t for everyone but it suits Lucy Liu and that’s what’s important.

She looks beautiful (period)
