Let’s finish out the Critics’ Choice Awards!

This is one of my least favorite styles – the structure-less sack. I’ll usually give it a pass if it’s at least in an interesting color (see: Thompson, Tessa), but this is…not. As is, it feels unfinished and lazy.

Red Carpet: The Best of the 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards

Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards further muddied the awards season waters. Glen Close tied with Lady Gaga for Best Actress, while “Roma” beat out “Green Book” after a weeks worth of bad press. There were few surprises on the red carpet though with no one taking too many risks and everyone looking pretty chic.

This is an awards season high for both Yalitza and Prada. I absolutely adore this whole look.

Golden Globes 2019: The After Parties

Let’s close out the 2019 Golden Globes by taking a look at who wore what to the after parties. Some folks changed after the ceremony – sometimes for the better, and sometimes for the MUCH worse.

Will I remember this dress tomorrow? No. Is it better than 90% of what she wears courtesy of Chanel? Yes.

Golden Globes 2019: Red Carpet Wrap Up

Time to wrap up the 2019 Golden Globes. Stay posted tomorrow for the after parties and the Critics’ Choice Awards!

Janelle Monáe in Chanel

This is A LOT of look. She has the confidence to carry off almost anything, so it’s unsurprising that she plucked this look “as is” off of Crazy Karl’s runway. I actually don’t hate it, although I would have eliminated the white long-johns.

Golden Globes 2019: The Best of the Rest

She is such a goddess. Calvin Klein has been hit and miss lately but this is divine.

Golden Globes 2019: Monique Lhuillier Dominates the Red Carpet

When I was preparing these posts I noticed a surprising trend – a shocking number of stars were wearing Monique Lhuillier. Now, Monique has a fair amount of red carpet success, but to get EIGHT people in her designs on one of the biggest red carpets of the year is quite the feat.

Once again and for the last time, Keri was denied the award she so richly deserves for “The Americans”. She looked fabulous while losing, though, and I was surprised to find out that this is actually separates – a sequined bodysuit and matching skirt. Both of which you can buy for your own red carpet needs if you happen to have a spare $2,790 laying around.

Golden Globes 2019: TV’s Nominees

Unlike this year’s films, I’ve seen a good deal of the nominated TV Shows. Among the winners, there were some long awaited blessings, like “The Americans” FINALLY winning Best Drama and a win for Patricia Clarkson in “Sharp Objects”. And then there were the obvious wins for “Killing Eve” and “The Assasination of Gianni Versace”. But there were also some equally frustrating wins – I’m looking at you, “The Kominsky Method”. The more things change, the more they stay the same, and a show about old white dudes will beat out a show like “Atlanta”. Sigh.

Sandra Oh in Atelier Versace

Sandra co-hosted the telecast with Andy Samberg and they both gave a charming 110% to a show that was thoroughly mediocre. However, her styling for the evening, from two Versace’s to a shockingly good Stella McCartney, completely made up for any mediocrity. This origami inspired Versace is one of my favorite looks of the night. It is classic, old school Hollywood glamour. I particularly love the way her side-swept hair balances out the exaggerated sleeve on the other side.
