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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts had their big Movies Awards tonight.   Perhaps it was the rainy weather, but the red carpet lacked a certain amount of glam.  Maybe it was because Naomi Watts wasn't in attendance.   The 40+ crowd at the BAFTAs wore a lot of black and white, with only a few pops […]

As I was doing my People's Choice Awards post last night, I sort of forgot about the Critics' Choice Awards - tonight.  There were lots of jewels tones, black and brights.    I am sure not everyone will agree with my choices, and I'd love to hear if you agree/disagree with my choices - below in […]

The trends on the Emmy Red Carpet were as varied as those on the fall runway.  There was a lot of colour - reds and yellows were especially big. There were patterns. There was lace. There was metallic. There were cut-aways. There was white.  And as always there was sparkle. Was a bit surprised not to […]

Last week we saw a lot of unique personal style walk the red carpet at the CFDA Awards.  This week the Tony Awards brings us a lot more safe style.  There are a lot of fantastic women in their 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s taking risky roles and shining on Broadway.  But they seem to play it […]

Another of my favourite fashion nights out.  This time New York fashion hit the red carpet  for the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards.   There are several things I love about this event. (1)Iis that we get to see what the designers wear and how they style themselves when they come out […]
