Golden Globes 2011 – Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde looks absolutely stunning on the red carpet at the 2011 Golden Globes. It looks like she’s wearing the night sky or the Milky Way. With bling like that, she doesn’t need to wear jewelry.

Thumbs way up for me.

2010 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Winners

Sunday market the 2010 Emmy Awards with plenty of glamour and topics of conversation on the red carpet.

Love it!

Tina Fey rocks the house in her elegant and glamorous Oscar de la Renta gown.  Modest yet fabulous.  Hot mama!

Claire Danes looks radiant in her Armani gown embellished with Swarovski crystals and beading.  In a complimentary color to her skin tone, the look is instantly harmonious.  Gorgeous.

Jenna Fischer’s gown nicely incorporates structural design in the bodice with a flowy persimmon chiffon gown.

Wow, look at how lithe Kelly Osborne is!  While not my favorite dress on the red carpet, the texture in the gown gives it great visual interest.

This stunning chocolate brown bejeweled gown is even more alluring with the cut-out.

Emily shines in this purple tiered ruffle gown.  She does right to keep her hair and accessories simple so the dress remains the focal point.

The Verdict is Still Out…

2010 Academy Awards Red Carpet Winners

Last Sunday brought us the Academy Awards in all of its glamorous splendor.  While awards are given for best performance, director, film, and score, there should really be awards for the best look on the red carpet.  Here are our red carpet winners:

2010 Academy Awards Red Carpet Winner: Demi Moore in Atelier Versace

I love how the warmth in her skin compliments the blush tone perfectly.  Perhaps it’s the flamenco dancer in me, but these flamenco-esque ruffles are simply to die for!

Cameron’s golden coloring is repeated beautifully in this stunning gown.  This woman can seemingly do no wrong on the red carpet.

2010 Academy Award Red Carpet Winners: Vera Farminga in Marchesa

While there has been much debate over Vera Farminga’s Marchesa gown choice, I think it’s absolutely stunning.  The color stands above the rest and the luxurious  ruffles are truly unforgettable.  Note the simple stud earrings — wise to give dominance to the gown!

2010 Academy Awards Red Carpet Winners: Kristen Stewart in Monique Lhuillier

Kristen’s looks divine in this flattering mermaid gown.  Her minimalistic jewelry really brings the attention back to her.

2010 Grammys Fashion: Love It or Hate It?

One of the best parts about the 2010 Grammy Awards Show is the fashion.  We’ve taken the looks we love and hate and would love your feedback!

Love it!

Jennifer Hudson is wearing a fabulous architectural inspired little black dress by Victoria Beckham.  The dress speaks for itself and she has done well to keep her accessories to a minimum.

Taylor Swift looks elegant and bedazzled in a hand-embroidered Kaufman Franco dress.  The statement earrings are the perfect touch. Doesn’t she almost looks like a mermaid?

Love the draped skirt on Rihanna’s bold Elie Saab Couture gown.  The silhouette is absolutely fabulous.  Still undecided on the feather decor on the bodice.

Hate It

Looks we weren’t so fond of?

2010 Grammys Fashion: Beyonce photo c/o fabsugar.com

Not loving Beyonce’s look.  Particularly her makeup.  And is she really wearing those single strands of tinsel in her hair?!

2010 Grammys: Ciara photo c/o fabsugar.com

Ciara’s futuristic Givenchy gown is a little out there.  Looks like something from an alien movie.  Not a fan.

2010 Grammys: Mary J. Blige photo c/o fabsugar.com

The design of Mary J. Blige’s Gucci dress is not doing her any favors, making her look very full in the hips.  Had Mary J.’s dress had a sleeve or more fullness in top, it would have just balanced her body better.

The Verdict’s Still Out

I’m still undecided on Lady Gaga’s out-of-this world look.  This woman sure knows how to make an entrance!

Julie and Julia

julie-julia-movie

Yesterday afternoon, a girlfriend and I slipped away to catch the first showing of Julie and Julia.  Julie and Julia is a delightful film following the legendary American cook, Julia Child, becoming Julia, and a woman trying to find herself who decides to cook each of Julia’s 500+ recipes in 365 days and blog about it.  If you’re in the mood for a good movie (that makes you hungry), I would definitely recommend Julie and Julia.

Near the end of the Julie and Julia film, Julie cooks the final dish on the 365th day and has a dinner party to celebrate her success.  As soon as I saw the darling white dress she wore, I knew immediately that I would be sharing it with you.

julie-julia-white-dress-2Isn’t the dress absolutely darling?  It looks like a strapless dress with a matching bolero jacket and the classic Julia Child-inspired pearls.   Darling!

Here’s a few pictures of what the stars wore on the red carpet at the Los Angeles Julie and Julia premiere!

If you’ve seen the latest Star Trek, you’ll know that Zoe Saldana does an amazing job bringing Uhura to life on screen. Zoe also has a keen sense of fashion off screen as is evident from her dress at the Star Trek Photo Call in Paris on April 14, 2009.
