The SAG Awards…or SAD Awards?

Good morning loves! I was so excitedly hoping that today’s post would include raves of fabulous gowns similar to the show stopping GG just a few wks ago. Seen here.  However, I was less than impressed and judging by my fellow twitter friends, you all feel the same…The only saving grace from this blunder after blunder was all of this Navy bliss. I have never grown to love a color more. These ladies put it down with gorgeous blue gowns so unique from one another.

They are perfectly defined for optimal elongation of her delicate frame. Marion shines in her two-toned white on top blue on bottom high low styled gown with an impecable train.  The pockets add a casual sensibility to the look and suits her carefree attitude.

Amanda Seyfried-Dazzles in Zac Posen. So elegant and sophisticated with her casual waves pressed to the one side. She kept it simple with minimal makeup and jewelry. Effortlessly chic and amaze!!

I missed Jordin Sparks entirely. That was until I woke up and read Perez Hilton this am. She is beaming in this beautiful blue! She looks amazing. It looks like this Nicole Miller dress was made for her.

Another trend that I have been seeing a lot this award season is the sideways part/sideways wavy hair. It looks so effortlessly elegant and I can’t wait for a reason to give it a try. Did you have any dresses that you loved or didn’t love? Am I the only one who was semi disappointed?? Let me know!

Ooooo la Oscar

I have to be real, I never really watch any award shows.  However, as a true lover of fashion and everything sparkly I always watch the red carpet to see all the fabulous out of this world dresses.  I like to dream about what it would be like to be able to participate and wear these gorgeous pieces of art.  Truthfully, I don’t think I have been head to toe done up since prom.  I know everyone has their own opinion of the best and worst dressed participates, but to be honest I was floored at how many of the women SHUT IT DOWN on Sunday. More than ever before I was oooohing and ahhhing over these to die for masterpieces.  Here are four of my favs…

1) Michelle Williams is always daring in her Oscar color choices and this coral Louis Vuitton peplum gown is absolutely perfection on her.  I love her pixie blonde hair cut and her bright pink clutch adds that extra pop of color and is so true to her style.

2) Stacy Keibler has to be the luckiest girl in Hollywood dating George Clooney, but she is holding her ground in this breathtaking single strap gold Marchesa gown.  I mean she looks like a walking Oscar and wasn’t even up for an award.

3) Gwyneth Paltrow is such a classic stunner on the red carpet.  I seriously was speechless when I first saw her in this unusual Tom Ford cape style gown. It is such a unique gown choice and classic for her style.

4) Kristen Wigg has become one of my personal favorites. Not only is she a talented, successful actress, but she is gorgeous and hilarious.  I adore everything about this flirty, girly J Mendel gown. It is a great color on her and I love her black nail polish, wavy hair and Prada shoes to top it off.

I am glad that award shows exist to bring out the little girl in all of us, longing for that Cinderella at the ball moment!!! xoxo
