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.

Inspiration - A Weekly Lift

  Lakes of Beauty Build an Oasis of Love Many are sighing with relief.  Now is the time to unite and heal the country.  Be open, be present and accept what comes. Would it not be wonderful to unite a fractured society where hate and anger were and still are at an all-time high.  Is it not time to start accepting one another, to listen to one another, and to support one another? Rather than throw stones at those with opposite thoughts or opinions.  It has been interesting and sad to witness such vitriol, destruction, and chaos this past year and hence.  Perchance rhetoric going forward will be filled with kindness for their fellow man.  One can only pray for sunshine to fill souls.  Thus, we begin again.  For now, notice the beauty around us.   The fall and winter to come are filled with peaceful moments when walking on your favorite trail.  Beauty surrounds us if we look.  The leaves, the wildlife, the rain, the lakes, the peace the small moments. Or maybe in your daily activities, you

Midweek Favorite Things - Pom Pom Hats

Baby It's Cold Outside "Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." Ralph Waldo Emerson The damp, dreary, wet and snow filled days are upon us for the upcoming months.   The change in the air is palpable along with early darkness falling across the land.   2020 has indeed been the craziest year for everyone with the horror of Covid, lockdowns and a roller coaster election.   After a nail-biting, hair-pulling, stress filled election this week with no clear resolution, it is best to remain steady and calm.   Life is indeed a wild ride with ups and downs, twists and turns.  You would not want your life to be dull, would you?  This year, more than any other year, in my lifetime, 2020 is one of complete societal pandemonium.  If someone had told me on New Year's Eve, that everyone's life in 2020 would be completely turned upside down, we would have looked at them and thought they were off their rocker.  Or maybe had imbibed a little too much.  Of course, it was

Monday's Favorite Things - Lip Stain

  What I Love This Monday? YSL - Tattoo Lip Stain The end of October is finally here with Halloween as the finale to this month.  Hopefully, everyone is having a wonderful season filled with pumpkins, beauty outside, fireplaces going, warm clothes and so much more.  Halloween will be different this year, but we can still celebrate in our own unique way.  Lately, I have been thinking about lipstick and how I love to wear color daily.  Masks have prevented us to see our beautiful smiles though the eyes do give you away when you grin with enthusiasm.   Thus, lipstick may not be something you are wearing.  What if you love to wear lipstick?  In thinking about masks and lipsticks, we need a solution that does not stain.  I have found that YSL has a terrific lip stain that lasts and does not rub off onto your mask.  As you all know, regular lipstick rubs off and suddenly you are dealing with a mess.   I like to drive without a mask and then put it on when going into public arenas.  I need a
