Golden Globes 2012 - Elegant Fashion and Hilarious Moments

Ricky Gervais was witty and mildly sarcastic, which made for a delightful show with the usual boring thank you speeches and odd quirky moments.  The award shows are always a bit dull.   Overall, here is a quick take on the overview of the Golden Globes 2012. 

Top Movies in 2011: All contain an underlying theme: Change, acceptance, no blame game and new beginnings

The Descendants, won the Golden Globe: workaholic who needed to change his life and becomes both mom and dad while is wife is in a coma; War Horse: boy separated from horse, Joey, during WWI; MoneyBall: with a losing streak, tries something new and becomes a winning team; Melancolia: sister tries to change a mentally ill sister into a sunny person but no avail with a planet nearing earth; The Artist: actor in silent films refuses to embrace "talkies" and falls to the wayside of the movie industry only to start anew; The Help: a writer telling the story of the "help" and the society women during the civil rights movement in the 60's. Tree of Life:  simpler times, harsh discipline, warm mom, tough dad, war, tragedy yet all that is living is connected.

Yes, movies in 2011were uplifting, funny, imaginative, dramatic, with great scripts and overall upbeat.  Thanks too  Hollywood heavyweights Harvey Weinstein, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Alexander Payne for backing and developing good films that entertained. A fine year of film. 

Top Television Shows 2011:  Refreshing, well written and many actors are clamoring to be on a television series.  Best writing is on the cable channels.

Top Golden Globe Awards:
  • Best Actor: George Clooney - well deserved.  He is the "true movie star" among movie stars.  Watch him work the room. 
  • Best Actress: Meryl Streep - completely unexpected.  She hoped Viola Davis would win.  Her dress and hair were horrid but again she is Meryl Streep. Why the swearing on stage?
  • Best Supporting Actor: Christopher Plummer - well deserved.  82 and still is brilliant on screen.
  • Best Supporting Actress:  Octavia Spencer - graceful, gorgeous and accomplished.  Well deserved. Best speech of the night.  A class act!
  • Best New Television Show:  Homeland
  • Best Actor in a Television Drama Series:  Kelsey Grammer - Boss - Yes!
  • Best Actress in a Television Drama Series:  Claire Danes -Homeland - Yes!
  • Best Television Comedy:  Modern Family
  • Best Movie Drama:  The Descendants
  • Best Movie Comedy:  The Artist

Vogue Fashion:  -  Fashion words of the night were elegant, charming and stunning.  The dress hues ranged from icy white, soft creams, pale flesh tones, vivid reds, emerald greens, cheery yellows and in fitted silhouettes. Men in primarily midnight blue tuxes.  Of course, only a very few missed the memo and lacked grace on stage and in apparel. Fashion couple of the night: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.    More on fashion on Forever Chic Style blog later this week.

Enjoy!  Oscars are next!!!

Life is a Gift

A River Called Life



"Life is a precious gift.  Use your day wisely." 

Life is a river.  A thriving, glorious flowing body of water that twists and turns filled with fish, beavers, small creatures, birds, eagles, violent eddies, rough waters, and calm pools. Or in our case as human beings doing the best they can as they spend each day rambling down the river of life.  An actual river flows downhill from the force of gravity.  The waters can be wide and deep or shallow to walk across.  This river can be called a stream, creek, or brook.  A once serene rushing river can turn into a flooding nightmare covering land, filling houses, and changing landscapes.  Just like humanity spinning towards the unknown.   
Life can be tranquil at moments and then burst into a storm of anger, disbelief, or tragedy.   A life is easily compared to a roaring river as transitions in our world are extremely rapid.  It can be difficult for the human mind to assess what has transpired.   The result is be…

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly.






Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight
There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …

Fourth Of July 2020

Home for the Holiday


"With freedom comes responsibility." Eleanor Roosevelt
Parades, apple pie, contests, hamburgers, friends, family, and fireworks are the essential ingredients for a celebratory Fourth of July.  This year will be unforgettable as the Covid 19 virus has changed the celebration landscape.  The large gatherings, festivities and essential mix of fun are on the shelf across the country. We ourselves are accustomed to celebrating in the islands viewing a parade, taking walks, wildlife adventures, exquisite dinners and viewing incredible fireworks that fill the sky.  Though this is year is unique, never fret. 
We have an opportunity to slip back in time and create an old fashioned Fourth of July at home.  Many of you are wondering what to do.  Well, think back to when you were little.  What did you do then? 
Growing up in the Northwest, we had sparklers, black snakes, and fountains to light off in the driveway. We attended barbecues with family or friends and watched…
