The Beginning

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!

My Absolute Favorites:

Michelle Williams in Valentino, channeling Twiggy.

Natalie Portman in Viktor & Rolf

Emma Stone in Calvin Klein

Julianne Moore in Lanvin

Hailee Steinfeld in Prabal Gurung

Claire Danes in Calvin Klein

Honorable Mentions:

January Jones in Versace

Scarlett Johanson in Elie Saab

Nicole Kidman in Prada

Leighton Meester in Burberry

Julianna Marguiles in Vintage YSL

Jayma Mayes in Alberta Ferretti

Helena Bonham Carter in Vivienne Westwood

Anne Hathaway in Armani

Christina Aguilera in Zuhair Murad

Milla Jovovich in Armani

I’m blonde, what’s your excuse?

I was born blonde.  I had honey blonde hair and big green eyes, but over the years my hair got gradually darker and became that awkward color people call dirty or mouse blonde.  Why would I ever want any part of me to be constantly referred to as “dirty” or “mouse”?  It is not, in my opinion, attractive or appealing.  So I decided to change it.

Color of my hair now.

Instead of going to obvious route, adding blonde, I decided to be more unconventional (imagine that) and go red.  So I have now had my hair dyed for about four years, and most everyone thinks it is natural and is shocked when I tell them I get it dyed once every few months.

But to be honest, I am kind of over it.  I like change and experimenting, so I am now going lighter, a strawberry blonde.  It was hard to find good pictures to describe what I want but Scarlett Johansson has really epitomized the color.  So today I am heading to the salon getting it done.  I haven’t been blonde since I was 13, so obviously I am nervous but I really hope it turns out the way I want it to.

Opening Ceremonies

Large blockbuster movie premieres will start to pick up soon, with the summer months drawing near.  The Iron Man 2 premiere is one of these such events.  The two female stars, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson both decided on white Armani, an interesting choice in my opinion.  Paltrow has gotten a bit of bad press over her short-suit ensemble but I think it completely reflects her laid back/fashion forward lifestyle.  Johansson’s short white dress is nice and very sculptural, a departure from her usual busty affairs, but we did see a lot of this look at the Oscar’s so I wish she picked something more original.

Personally, I think the best premiere, however, went to the ladies who attended the New York City Ballet Spring Gala last night. True, it could be because I have an obsession with Lanvin and everything Alber Elbaz does (same goes for Matthew Broderick), but I think what Portman and Parker picked out were more colorful for one, and honestly more beautiful.  Portman is wearing a dress from Lanvin which fits her amazingly and is perfectly styled and Parker is wearing Elie Saab Haute Couture and a jacket by L’Wren Scott.  It looks very vintage and classy, not a bit over the top.
