SAG Awards: Blacks, Whites, and Neutrals

I saved this one for last, since after the Globes I really don’t have much more to say about a black dress.

This could have been nice except for the poor Muppet they stapled to her waist.

SAG Awards: And SO Much Color!

After everyone going all in on black for the Globes, I can’t blame them for injecting some color into the always colorfully ridiculous SAG’s.

I was at a party over the weekend and we were talking about our celebrity “freebies”, ie: the famous folks those of us in a relationship get a free pass to sleep with should you run into them at a bar. All the men in the room mentioned Alison Brie, which I was honestly surprised by! I wouldn’t have pegged her a “sex symbol”, but maybe that’s just in “nerdy bro” circles. Either way, she’s not on MY list, and neither is this dress. I appreciate the lighting bolt nod to her OTT costumes on “Glow”, but this feels a little too tacky.

SAG Awards: So Many Sparkles!

Guys, SO many people wore sparkles on Sunday. Naturally, I like about 90% of these.

This is super – I love the bronze color and the way the dress gathers itself into the rose on her shoulder is so elegantly done.

The Critic’s Choice Awards: The Best (?) of the Rest

Finally closing out the Critic’s Choice Awards after contending with a bout of suspected food poisoning. I’m dedicated to this blog, but not “scrolling through Getty Images on the bathroom floor” dedicated. Let’s wrap this up before the SAG’s on Sunday!

Angelina Jolie in Ralph and Russo

Yes, it’s in her usual color range of black or white, but I am digging the feathers she’s been deploying lately. Much like “Put a Bird On It”, a few feathers can go a long way in making things less boring.

The Critic’s Choice Awards: TV Nominees

The TV ladies were a bit of a mixed bag…

I wish it were lined, but I’m actually way more into this than I thought I would be if you described it to me. But seriously – the collage-like elements are the most interesting thing here, and they would be much better highlighted if it were just lined in black. Historically, I haven’t been a fan of Biel’s taste, but the last few events she’s worn some interesting things.

The Critic’s Choice Awards: Film Nominees

Awards season stops for no woman. Let’s dive straight into the TCA’s, which I am already a week behind in reporting on!

It looks like her lady-bits are being sucked inwards. Not my favorite look. And the makeup is so discordant.

Golden Globes: The After Parties, Part Deux

It’s interesting that mostly everyone stuck to the blackout dress code for the after parties, even if they didn’t attend the ceremony!

Julianne is a longtime supporter of Marchesa – the brand co-owned by Harvey Weinstein’s ex-wife, Georgina Chapman. That’s to say, I was very curious to see who she would wear. I do not believe in blaming the wife for the sins of the husband, but I do think that Marchesa will have to go through some serious re-branding or hibernation period before they re-emerge. Lacking Marchesa as an option, Julianne went with similarly romantic, if less froofy, Jenny Packham.

Golden Globes: The After Parties

It’s always interesting to see who changes between the ceremony and the after party. Usually it’s ladies with long train, but sometimes it’s obviously a “have your cake and eat it too” situation where they couldn’t choose between two gowns. Let’s take a look at the ladies who changed:

WHYYYYYYY????? This looks like what my kitten, Freya, does to rolls of toilet paper.

Golden Globes: What Would Molly Wear?

Now that we’ve taken a look at what everyone wore to Sunday’s Golden Globes, I took a look through the collection from the last year to pick what I would have worn, like I did with the Emmy’s.

This was tougher than I thought. First of all, I wanted to choose a female designer, for the obvious reason that the blackout was partially a statement on the importance of amplifying female voices in Hollywood. Women are actually still in the minority when it comes to leading many of the top fashion houses. Also, aesthetically, I am almost pathologically attracted to bright colors and patterns, so sticking to black was definitely a challenge!

I narrowed it down to two, but simply couldn’t choose, and they’re different enough I decided to share both!

First up is this Reem Acra from her Resort 2018 collection:

I like that I would look like a nicely gift wrapped “fuck you” to the patriarchy.

My second choice is a gown I have been obsessed with for a while now from Alberta Ferretti’s Fall 2017 Ready-to-Wear line:

I love that it adheres to the blackout, but as we know, I can resist neither a cape nor a whimsical, romantic, sparkle.

What would you wear? Comment with your red carpet choice!

Golden Globes: And Finally, The Movie Stars

Took a few liberties with this category…like, Mariah Carey counts because of “Glitter”, right!?

YES. FINALLY. This is the best she has looked within her partnership with Gucci. I mean, remember this? And this?
