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 […]

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 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 […]

This is the point in award's season where I start to get a bit more jaded.  I found a lot of the dresses tonight a bit boring. Or kind of tacky.  I suspect the woman who are walking red carpet after red carpet are likely feeling the same.   It is hard to pick a dress […]

WOW!  This is such a busy award show with both TV and Movie personalities.  So many great looking 40 and over, as well as some very cute couples and some red hot eye candy.  Below you find my top and bottom picks with the rest of my picks in a 2013 Golden Globes Pinterest Board.  […]

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.  […]
