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 […]

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 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! […]

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 […]

So 2013 and another red carpet award season begins...  I like how the season begins with a nice light and fun award show like the People's Choice Awards.   Then we build through the Golden Globes, SAG, Grammy's, BAFTAs,  with a quick diversion to the Costume Designers Guild Awards before finishing up with the Oscars on February 24th.  […]

This is the first year that I've included the British version of the Oscars. But there seems to be too many great red carpet dresses, by the 40 and over set, that I couldn't ignore them.  The dresses were simpler than the Oscars, with lots of solid white, black and red.  Most of the ladies played it […]
