Celebrity Fashion

The news on tonight's Emmy red carpet for the 40+ set was white,  cut-outs, bold colours, minimalism, back capes (is that what they are called?), some real curve hugging va va voom, and a few who stood out all by themselves by wearing what they know works for them. There were also the usual plunging necklines, […]

WOW! The big trend of the night was pale dresses: ivory, blush, nude, silver, etc. There was almost as many pale dresses as there were LBDs. I did notice that none of the ladies in those pale colours were holding out their hands for some of that pizza. Except for Meryl, but her skirt was […]

Tonight is a quick post about the Independent Spirit Awards. It is like a casual warm up for the BIG fashion Oscar Night tomorrow. The Independent Spirit Awards always confuses me just a bit. I know it is more casual, and "independent" than other awards shows. But it still stuns me when people walk the […]

Some things should NEVER come into style in the first place. Let alone a second time around. I feel this way about the high cut bodysuit. Think back to the 1980s during the aerobics craze. Jane Fonda wore those crazy high cut bodysuits. Many others followed, although most regular folks worn over a unitard while […]

I have to be honest, I am finding this year's award show red carpet a bit boring. There are some nice gowns, lots of lovely draping, lots of great texture and details. But I had a hard time coming up with 10 favourites at the Screen Actor's Guild  (SAG) Awards. So I kept my  list to […]

Lots of great ladies, gentlemen and couples 40+ at the 2014 Golden Globe awards. Before we get to the dresses, I have to say what fun Emma Thompson appears to be. In pictures and on screen she seemed to be always be laughing and having and a blast. Plus she brought her daughter to the […]

I have to admit I wasn't sure if I was more excited about Neil Patrick Harris hosting or the Emmys red carpet fashions this year. In the end neither disappointed. The trends on the Emmy Red Carpet mirrored what we have been seeing on the red carpet for fall and next spring - cutaways, black […]

I LOVE the Annual Costume Institute Gala at The Met. To me this is the red carpet to watch. Yes, I also love the Oscars but there is an immense pressure to do be pretty and glamorous at the Oscars. The Met Gala tends to be more over the top, more about fashion. More fun! […]

I think next year I am going to host an Oscar party.  I miss the fun debate over who will win, the dresses, who will fall walking to the stage, the dresses, who will say something stupid, the dresses, and how well the host is doing... oh and the dresses. And while I enjoyed a glass […]

I will admit that I wasn't bowled over by any of the outfits worn by the 40+ crowd to the Grammy awards. There were some lovely gowns of course.  And a lot more colour than the BAFTAs. But nothing that easily stood out as my favourite. There were, though, some great WOW! moments. The Favourites Rapper […]
