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!!!

Flexible is a Choice

Spice of Life What does it take to being flexible on the road of life especially when change is at an all time high? Well, for many the simple task of walking will transform the body and mind thus ingraining a "flexible mindset".    Of course, put your phone away or keep on silent.  Allow yourself to hear your own thoughts and unleash your creative side or solve issues.   During the last year and a half, I have been walking with my husband and friends.  We have discovered new places, trails, wildlife, foliage, and forged friendships.  We have been accepting, evolving and creating new elements in our lives.  Along the journey, we have all strengthened our bodies and fueled our minds with conversation while admiring nature and embracing connection.  We became flexible with what we were able to do on a daily basis.    Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had an opportunity to get off the hamster wheel and adjust our lives accordingly.  For some, the adjustment was hard, and

Mom Jeans - Oh NO

  Just Say It Isn't So! "I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity- all I hope for in my clothes." Yves Saint Laurent "Mom Jeans"   are making a powerful comeback in 2021.  I remember women wearing "Mom Jeans" in the day and am stunned that women are slipping down this road again.  The term "Mom Jeans" originated in the in the late 1980's and early 1990's. They were worn by mom's and considered unhip by the youth.  A friend of mine recently asked, "What exactly are Mom Jeans?"   Typically, "Mom Jeans" are higher waisted than the high waist style, often in a light denim wash, creating a longer and flatter hind end.  There is extra fabric throughout and can emphasize a pouch if you have one. The fit is snug at the waist, sometimes with a waist band with a loose and unfitted leg.  Think of pajama pants only with extra fabric at the top.  The next requirement is to
