Golden Globe 2012 Forever Chic Style Overview

                                              
The 69th Golden Globe soiree was attended by the Hollywood elite draped in fashion hues from snowy winter white, creamy nudes, skin tone blushes, vivid reds, electric yellows, deep blues and emerald greens. Many gowns were form fitting with fishtail hems, off the shoulder and in satin and frothy fabrics with perfect hair and makeup. The men wore midnight blue and black tuxes with Colin Firth taking the lead on men's fashion.   There were a few mishaps such as Johnny Depp and Madonna with a creative dress and overly buffed arms, yet both had taken care in planning the quirky looks. Most were stunning: Octavia Spencer, Emma Stone, Kate Beckinsale, Shailene Woodley, Stacy Keibler, Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren.  A star studded night with the Hollywood finest dressed to the nines celebrating and showing respect for fellow artists and the Hollywood Foreign Press.  Why not have fun and dress up!

Forever Chic Style - The Lady in Waiting
Top of the Forever Chic Style list though not Queen!

Sofia Vergara: “Blue Diva” Vergara owned the red carpet with panache and warmth while encased in a spotlight deep blue Vera Wang fishtail frock.  Charm oozed from Vergara with stick straight hair, classic movie star gown lines, sparkling bracelet with drop earrings and perfection makeup.  Set against the red carpet and surrounded by flesh tones, creams and white, this fashionista reigned supreme.  Vergara sense of fashion style and effervescence personality on the hit Golden Globe 2012 winner, comedy, Modern Family, is a true Hollywood entertainer and The Lady in Waiting!   


Forever Chic Style - The Queen 
Effortlessly exudes confidence, smart and sophisticated elegance, poise and manners. 

                    
Director Angelina Jolie:  "In The Land of Blood & Honey”   Stop the press, stop the commentary for The Red Carpet Queen has arrived.  Jolie stepped out of the limo and onto the red carpet, in a Versace white satin gown with a red sash at the throat, red lips and matching clutch.  All eyes were riveted, mouths dropped open in silence and then unanimously cheered.  A true movie star floated down the red carpet, captivating attention along with leading man, Pitt.   The white satin, red accents, hair and catlike makeup showed the world that Jolie is indeed the most gorgeous women alive in 2012.   Every commentator on the television after shows was struck by Jolie's breathtaking beauty.  This year, as a director, for In the Land of Blood & Honey the color of this gown fit aptly – Blood & Honey.   Jolie’s grace in presenting, talking with commentators and focusing on Pitt was ladylike Audrey Hepburn.   Jolie always makes an entrance and is always unforgettable.  Pitt and Jolie are the King and Queen of moment for film and for humanitarian efforts. 

Forever Chic Style -  The Frumpy Frog Queen 
A visual mess, no respect for event, self or others. So not Audrey.  For shame.  

Meryl Streep: "Cowgirl of the West” Meryl Streep, once again, won the Best Actress in Drama for The Iron Lady. Streep,in shock,  had hoped that Viola Davis, The Help, would win.   Streep wore an ugly black sack with messy hair, glasses and hands in pockets signaling  The Frumpy Frog Queen.  Obviously, little thought or care was given to dressing for the evening. Did Fonda, Mirren, Close or even Maddona, in a festoon of oddity, think to not play the game?  Meryl, " Do the leading men in Hollywood such as  Nicholsen, Warren, Connery, Poitier and on this night - Freeman, when on stage appear in ill fitting clothing?" Answer:  Never. What an affront to fellow thespians.  And, swearing on the stage?  Where is the respect for the industry? For the Oscars, hire a fashion consultant - perhaps Rachel Zoe.  Davis, give Streep a run for victory in February at the Oscars.

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Perfume Spritz - My Favorite Things

  Beauty in a Bottle "Perfume heralds a woman's arrival and prolongs her departure." Beauty is hard to describe.  The very essence of what is beautiful varies from person to person, culture to culture and land to land.  Perfume is similar to the idea of beauty. It is subjective.  Perfume is a mystery, and its elixir is a marvel. The scent becomes its own magic.  It is the lingering scent that creates a moment or recreates a memory of a person.  Whether it is spice, floral or warm notes of lavender or vanilla, a scent can bring immense comfort and pleasure.  What does stand the test of time is a signature perfume.  Perfume was created in 1340 for the Queen of Hungary.  Thus, the story of fragrances commenced.  Perfume remains at the top of everyone's list of "feeling good."  Additionally, perfume sales in 2020 were close to $34B.   We all have experienced being around someone who smells divine.  The scent is memorable and hard to capture in a bottle. Even in

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer.
