Forever Chic Style - 70th Golden Globes 2013 - Overview


Angelina Jolie - The Leg - Oscars 2012
Lucy Liu
The 70th Annual Golden Globes bash was held on January 13, 2013 attended by Hollywood’s finest ladies and gents draped in hues of demure nudes, rich palettes of reds and wines, a few daring blues and many in stylish black gowns.  Similar to 2012, form fitting dresses with fishtails hems prevailed along with sweetheart necklines combined with shimmer, shine and sheer fabrics with perfect hair and makeup. The men wore elegant black suits, some in black tuxes and perhaps outdid the women in 2013.   George Clooney, Ben Affleck and Hugh Jackman led the pack for the men. Alas, a few mishaps such as Holly Berry and Emily Blunt with  bizarre material cutouts, Lucy Liu with a Gone with the Wind concoction in a wallpaper pattern meant for a garden room at Versailles and Sienna Miller with flowers all over in a non-flattering two-piece gown. Lastly, several evoked Angelina Jolie from Oscars 2012 with mile high slits on the thigh showing off one leg.   Most were simply gorgeous:  Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Helen Mirren, Kerry Washington, Amy Adams, Claire Danes and Megan Fox just to name a few.  Who is The Lady in Waiting, The Queen and the Frumpy Frog?  Well....

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

 
Sofia Vegara - “Glittering Diva” Vergara once again va va voomed in front of cameras and fans in a glittering black curve-hugging off the shoulder Michael Cinco gown with minimal jewels and long brunette hair.  The red lips, big eyes and smile kept the light bulbs flashing and eyes pointedly focused on this beauty.  The sense of style and winning personality shows through on the carpet and on Modern Family.  Vergara remains the Lady in Waiting since the dress is similar to last year’s Golden Globe creation.  On the other hand, this style works and if something dazzles year after year - why change?
 



Forever Chic Style The Queen of 70th Golden Globes  
Effortlessly confident, smart, sophisticated elegance, poise and manners
 
Kate Hudson - "Effervescent Queen" Kate Hudson glided on the red carpet in a show stopping and fitted Alexander McQueen gown.   The fit and sleek cut of the long black frock combined with glittering gold was a site to behold.  Additionally, the flowing blond tresses, simple jewelry and makeup stood out amongst the other ladies of evening.  Perhaps it was the warm smile that oozed enthusiasm on this chilly California night.  Hudson was Forever Chic Style impeccable and Queen for the night.
 
Forever Chic Style - The Frumpy Frog Queen
A
visual mess.  So not Audrey Hepburn.
 
 
Jessica Chastain - “Will She or Won’t She” The sky blue hue of Chastain’s dress was simply divine against the creamy skin and red hair.  The gown, on the other hand, did not flatter the slim silhouette.  The hair was severely parted and the bodice of the Calvin Klein work of art not only could flash the press at any moment but also was lumpy and not flattering.  When turning around the fabric seemed to cut into the skin creating the cursed back fat.   Overall, this accomplished actress and stunning beauty sadly disappointed fashionista fans on this freezing California night.  Of course, winning the Golden Globe for the Best Actress in a Drama for a riveting performance in Zero Dark Thirty was icing on the cake.  Perhaps at the Oscars on February 24, 2013, Chastain will wear a fitted awe-inspiring ensemble and become the toast of the town with the Oscar in hand for Best Actress in a Drama in a film.  One could only hope!


Remember Forever Chic Style beauty always starts from within.  Even if some missed the fashion mark - it is their smiles, their laughter and their poise that was noticed and admired.
 
 
"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."
— Audrey Hepburn

Sisterhood - Belonging

Connection is Everything



 "Once women find the sisterhood, there is nothing stronger." Zoe Kravitz
The last few months have been pivotal on proving what is important in life.  At least for me.  While reading numerous books, writing, working in my office, gardening, making dinner, watching Netflix, being with my husband, one powerful thought was apparent, "We need human connection especially, "The Sisterhood."
Having girlfriends is imperative along with your family and loved ones.  The sisterhood is a dynamic elixir that feeds our minds and souls.  And, yes, we can talk for hours, following tangents in conversations and often without garnering or wanting a solution to our angst.  We just want to "be." Men often are the opposite, and not always a fan of our ramblings. We love it that they want to "solve" the issue but we on the other hand just want to vent, analyze, and forget.   After all, we sisters need to state 20,000 words a day versus men …

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…

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…
