If you missed the Golden Globes this weekend you missed a marvel of Hollywood’s most spectacular red carpet glamour to kick start the 2013 awards season.

o-ZOOEY-DESCHANEL-GOLDEN-GLOBES-570

 

Zooey Deshanel – Although she lost for the Best Actress Performance in a Comedy or Musical she was a sure winner on the red carpet, sizzling in a red hot strapless gown from Oscar De la Renta. She accessorized with classy pearls by Kwiat, Casadei satin platform pumps and a Christian Louboutin clutch. She definitely stayed within the more traditional awards show appropriate looks.

 

GGCLairedanes

 

Claire Danes– won the award for Best Actress in a TV Series for her role in HOMELAND and although we think Zooey wins in the red dress category we also would like to honor Claire with the best snapback after a baby award! 4 Weeks ago?? YOU GO GIRL! She claims her red halter dress from Versace masters illusion and was quoted saying, “I literally can’t go to the bathroom unless I take the entire dress off.”

Who wore nude best last night? Our favorite SCANDAL actress Kerry Washington or Jennifer Lopez? (You’d never guess what our friends on Instagram said…)

J-Lo is no stranger when it comes to daring red carpet looks and this event was no exception, Although we love love love Kerry’s sheer nude colored dress from Miu Miu with crystal accents and would definitely consider it one of last night’s best dressed, Jennifer Lopez’s nude form fitting dress with white lace embroidery definitely says SCANDAL as well!

Anne Hathaway – Winner of Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in Les Miserables wowed her in her white strapless dress from non other than Chanel. The fit was perfect for her!

 

GGklum

Others who wowed us in white included Heidi Klum in her one shoulder Alexandre Vauthier and Lea Michelle in Elie Saab. Both of these looks were superb and although neither one of them took home an award they sure left one heck of an impression! Howevere Heidi Klum definitely takes the cake as best dressed in white.

Our faves is black evening gowns were at least 10 steps ahead of your basic black.

 

o-SOFIA-VERGARA-GOLDEN-GLOBES-570

They include Sofia Vergara (who may have lost for Best Supporting Actress in a Series or Mini Series made for TV but WON on the red carpet.) Her beaded mermaid gown with sweetheart neckline was absolutely brilliant and oozed effortless glamour. Her jewelry from Lorraine Schwartz only topped off the look. Simply elegant.

Katherine McPhee had our jaws drop down to there in her plunge vneck from Theory, the dress was definitely a showstopper making her the most talked about in the black evening gown category

 

GGlongoria

 

Another beautiful in black included Eva Longoria, who wore Emilio Pucci. Her lace and chiffon backless dress with the plunging neckline and high leg slit wins our award for best dressed in black.

 

 

Top 3 worst dressed included our own beloved Real Housewife of Atlanta, Nene Leakes, her outfit would have been perfect, for another day at another time for a different event, just not this one.

 

GGNENE

 

Halle Berry also landed her self on the worst dressed list. The dress is amazing, for a beach in Hawaii with no shoes and a string bikini underneath.

The Oscars 2013 Preview: Who’s Nominated, Who Should Win And Why You Should Watch?

January 15th, 2013 by Lifestyle Staff

Award season is officially here! The 2013 Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, are approaching with the nominations recently revealed for each category. This award ceremony acknowledges excellent achievements in cinematography and its prestigious reputation dates back to 1929. The Oscars will premiere Sunday, February 24, 2013 on ABC hosted by Family Guy’s voice and creator Seth McFarlane. Whether you love it for the the red carpet fashion, the movie recaps, or seeing the masters of ceremony and hearing great speeches, we have a few highlights of this year’s Oscars’ nominees, movies, and what to expect on this year’s red carpet.

 

Best Movie

After creating quite a buzz for the latest release of his movie last year, Quentin Tarantino’s Django is nominated for Best Movie, Cinematography, and sound editing. Let’s see if this outstanding production will take home just one, or all three. It’s unfortunate and a bit surprising, however, that Jamie Foxx nor Kerry Washington are nominated for their roles, as they were pivotal supporting characters and heavy promoters for the leading film.

 

1138856 - Django Unchained

Best Actor

Shedding that tear during the movie Flight meant something. That riveting performance by Denzel Washington set him in place for the sixth Best Actor Award nomination of his career and a chance to win this award for the third time. If you seen any of his phenomenal films, you know that Denzel almost never disappoints.

Best Actress

History was made with the announcement of this young actress, Quvenzhane’ Wallis, as the youngest nominee ever for the Best Actress Award. At the age of only 5, she auditioned for the role of Hushpuppy in the movie Beasts if Southern Wild; now 9 years old planning to make her appearance at the Oscars. Little people doing BIG things!

Best Supporting Actor

Considering the fact that every Best Supporting Actor nominee this year has won an Oscar, to see Robert DiNero take another one home wouldn’t be less deserving, especially for those still impressed by his award winning role in the movie Godfather. Robert DiNero is nominated for his role as Pat Sr., the sports-obsessed father of a man recently released from a psychiatric hospital  in the movie Silver Linings Playbook.

Best Supporting Actress

This nomination isn’t for her role as Cat Woman in the movie Batman the Dark Knight Rises, but we can still be excited that Anne Hathaway was recognized for her second Oscar nomination of her career for the role as Fantine, a young mother who loses her job in a factory and struggles to take care of her daughter in Les Miserables. The movie  is considered an Oscar glory already with more than four nominations.

The Red Carpet

Pictured below are a few of last year’s best dressed gowns. Every year, the audience is wowed by flowing gowns as artists parade in their best dress for this special occasion. Long splits and creative ways to show skin without wearing a cocktail dress is what excites most and gets people talking. This year, like every year, the standards are higher as the leading ladies of Hollywood strive to out do last year’s best dressed.

Create Trendy Monochromatic Looks From What’s In Your Closet Today!

December 10th, 2012 by Christen

It’s always refreshing to discover a style trend that let’s you utilize what you already have in your closet in a unique way. What’s better is discovering that EVEN your grandmother and Lucky Magazine is already up on the trend (making it more exciting to try it out on your own!) In the January issue of Lucky Magazine, the trend of  monochrome styling is defined and outlined with three top tips to help you make the monochromatic trend all your own!

The Monochrome Trend = wearing multiple shades of the same base color within an ensemble.

Tip #1:

Use one rich hue to ground the mix of shades. The darkest shade of the primary color should be the anchor of the outfit and typically should be the jacket, top or sweater.

Tip #2:

Wear wild prints as neutral-worthy accessories. Leopard print shoes & accessories make great neutral options for tone – on – tone looks.

 

 

Tip #3:

Texture adds dimension to a monochromatic look. Choose textured sweaters, cardigans and scarves are great options to add versatility to an already established look.

Rocking monochromatic options in hues of cobalt blue, red and pale pinks!

Tip #4:

Add a pop of contrast color with a bag. Think color blocking with your bag! Adding a pop of color via a clutch or large bag provides the versatility of solid colors without the boring black or brown bag!

 

Now that you have a couple of ideas on how to take a few items from your closet that you already own to recreate all new monochromatic looks – what are you waiting for? Get in your closet and get ready to experiment with new exciting looks that are on trend this season!

Celebrity stylist Olori Swank has elevated her look to another level making her one to look for when she’s expected to appear at an event.
