Oscars 2017 Red Carpet Review

So I actually thought last night’s Oscars red carpet was pretty boring. There was a lot I didn’t like, a slew I was “meh” about and only a couple looks I really liked. I hate it when that happens!  I still am craving to see people looking pretty and elegant (but unique), not edgy/ugly and “FASHION!!!!”

Nicole Kidman was my best dressed. Typically I do not like super pale complexions in nude dresses (which Nicole does allllll the time) but this one was amazing- the pattern, detail and neckline were stunning and that orange-y red lip made the entire look work on her.  Her hair, makeup and jewelry was also totally spot on (she didn’t look as Botoxed to high heaven as she normally does). Bravo.

Golden Globes Red Carpet Review

Last night I was contently watching the red carpet with Henry asleep on my chest and a glass of red wine in hand.  However, I did go to bed about 1/4 of the way through the telecast of the awards because when he konks out, I konk out. :)  But I of COURSE have some opinions on the fashion.  It was true mixed bag last night with some people who normally kill it making big mistakes and those I expect to show up looking crazy (or those I did not know) strutted in looking amazing!

Kirstan Dunst SLAYED it. Like, how good does she look? Way better than I’ve ever seen her.  It’s a lot of boob, but yet looks elegant and not skanky. And the makeup, hair and accessories are so on point.  I also LOVED Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s sparkly navy dress with the deep plunge, smoky eye and simple earrings. So gorgeous. Plus POCKETS, y’all.

However, what int he fresh hell was up with Channing’s boy band gone wrong hair???? And the goatee?  Which really I have no business knocking since I let Andrew rock a goatee for our WEDDING (ugggghhhh, what was I thinking?)  Anyway, I forgive him after seeing his Beyonce lip sync battle.  But just this once, Magic Mike. Just this once.

Emmy’s Red Carpet Review

I’ll be honest, I did not watch a minute of the Emmy’s- I’ve taken to sleeping (or trying to) a lot in the third trimester.  But I did watch the Red Carpet- which really did help lull me to sleep.  Oh man, SUPER boring, am I right??  I don;t even have a clear best dressed winner- plenty of people looked prefectly pretty, but no one person made me sit up and go “Ooooohh, I LOVE that!!!”

As far as “favorites” I think my favorites were Aubrey Plaza and Sarah Hyland.  Aubrey’s dress draped SO beautifully (I would have done a bolder earring I think) and Sarah Hyland’s dress was pretty from the front, but really stunning from the back.

I also loved all the ladies in simple black dresses- not the most earth shattering thing ever, but still gorgeous. Julia Louis Dreyful always kills it and Julie Bowen’s funky top and awesome accessories keep her look from getting dull.

Golden Globes Best and Worst

So, I’m in paradise…without a tv.  So I was not able to watch the Golden Globes, but that doesn’t mean I can’t review the fashion! :) A little best and worst dressed (and a lot in between) to kick off your morning:

For the first time in forever, I don’t think I was bowled over with a clear “best dressed” favorite! There were a bunch I “liked”, but nothing that totally rocked my world. Sienna Miller looks fabulous and unique- especially love the hair and makeup. And Naomi Watts looked amazing in this canary sheath with snake necklace. Although I feel like perhaps I’ve seen a version of this on her before? Hey if it works, don’t mess with it…
