And with the Golden Globes behind us, Award Show Season is officially underway. I have always liked the Golden Globes because it mixes both television and movies which in my opinion makes for a less serious, fun environment. The Academy Awards are of course my favorite, but it often seems a bit tense and everyone takes themselves quite seriously. The Golden Globes are supposed to be a bit less dressy, and often more playful, but not to the extent of the Grammys.
Sunday night I was happily surprised by the clothes on the red carpet. There was experimentation and some very sleek and sophisticated gowns. There were only a handful of dresses that I really disliked, and a few lackluster ones, but other than that the show made me very excited to see what is planned for the Oscars!

Michelle Williams in Valentino, channeling Twiggy.

President Obama was in town last night (NYC that is) for a little fundraising dinner hosted by Anna Wintour. I love this. I really do. The whole fashion industry really got behind Obama, designing shirts, reusable tote bags, putting Michelle on the cover of Vogue and creating more eco-friendly clothing.

The dinner cost $30,400 per person and was attended by some of America’s finest, most prominent designers, such as Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, and Donna Karan.
It has also been announced that after much consideration, Chelsea Clinton has decided on a gown designed by Vera Wang to wear during her much anticipated wedding to Marc Mezvinsky.

I actually think fashion and politics have more in common than they would like to admit. Both have a foundation in money, relationships, who you know and they are both deeply seeded in change. Fashions change just as much as who is in power.

So I decided to jump on the whole World Cup bandwagon. I actually really like soccer (football, whatever) the players are highly attractive and are in amazing shape, and yes the sport is fast paced and fun to watch. I watched the World Cup in Germany four years ago for the first time and loved it, and I try to watch it as much as I can this year.
To my delight, Vanity Fair has the same interest as me, the players. And they also have the humor I value in a magazine.
Below are images from the photo shoot the magazine did featuring players from different countries, wearing only their underwear. It is Calvin Klein meets United Colors of Benetton done in a tasteful, funny way. The styling is great because they are in stages of undressing, which I think is very smart. It makes it more tasteful and candid, rather than sexy.
The player on the left's face is priceless.
Please tell me where to get the Burberry boxers.
