Forever Chic Style - 70th Golden Globes 2013 - Overview


            
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

Tee-Shirts - Rag & Bone

  Ultimate Comfort "The tans will fade but the memories will last forever."  Town & Country Summer is coming.   You can feel it especially now with the sunshine filling the land in the Pacific Northwest.  The mornings are crisp with afternoons that are warm with a slight breeze.  The blue skies combined with the yellow daffodils, pink magnolia blossoms, flowers appearing, green trees, snow covered mountains and endless green growth is magnificent.  The eye is endless entertained, and the balm of the sun soothes the weary after months of rain, sleet, hail, snow and cold.  Soon we will be storing our cashmere sweaters and pulling out simple tee-shirts, shorts, bathing suits, hats and sunscreen. Overall, it is a happy time especially this year now more than ever.  We can finally breathe a sigh of relief.   While we are embracing the long awaited change, I have found the perfect tee-shirt for the Summer months to come. Rag & Bone is the answer once again. The quality of t

Red Bathing Suits

  Lady in Red Elizabeth Taylor - Pixabay "When in doubt, wear red." Bill Blass Red is the color of passion, danger, anger and ultimately love.  It is a hue that stands out in a crowd, commands attention, and flatters the owner.  Think of fashionistas sporting a red dress in film or in the real world.  Heads turn, smiles happen, and the world stops for a moment.  Red is the color that truly makes an entrance.  Finding the correct red can be daunting.  If you have light, creamy skin with a pink cast, often a blue red is best.  If your skin is olive shade with a yellow undertone, then an orange red is your choice.  This handy chart by RITO designer knitwear can help identify your personal color of red.  Now the fun begins.  Once you have your color wheel done, you can then choose a delightful red hue from lipsticks, apparel and yes for a bathing suit.  The next mission is finding a red bathing suit, which often is difficult.  One would believe that a red bathing suit would be av

Rag & Bone Sweaters

  Winter Sale Pixabay - No Attribution Required We live for sales these days!  Do we not?  Getting a deal on well made, designed clothing with a percent off. What more can we ask for? Currently, there are fantastic price decreases on one of my favorite brands, Rag and Bone.  During the winter months, and even in early Spring and Fall, there is nothing better than a warm cashmere sweater to drape yourself in against the chill.   Of course, I must recommend purchasing a sweater in a classic shape that is timeless rather than on trend.  Classic or Trendy?  Which brings up a good point?  There are always new trends for us to partake each season.  For instance, flared jeans are making a strong comeback.  Whereas skinny jeans remain front and foremost.  A skinny, cigarette or straight leg jean can be worn for years rather than with a flared hem. Another trend hitting the airwaves are loose trouser pants, which in my fashion opinion are reminiscent of pajamas.  If you are going to buy pants,

Jeans for Spring 2021

  Vi br ant Hues Pixabay - No Attribution Required The sun is out, birds are singing, and Spring is here.  I spent the day in the yard cutting back plants, grasses, and ferns in preparation for the new, glorious, and riotous growth.   The bounty is always stunning with an array of colors.  Later in the Spring, I will fill my pots with hues that add to the décor of the backyard and deck.  Yes, Jeans Please? What does this have to do with jeans in rainbow tones?  Well, the world is filled with beauty.  You must look for it and when you do sigh with delight.  Recently, my favorite celebrity diva, Suzanne Somers, was wearing and rocking skinny orange jeans with black pumps on one of her weekly Facebook videos.  Which, of course, were stunning on her.  Orange jeans are the perfect signal that springtime has officially arrived.   Of course, she is in desert and it is a bit warmer.  However, our day in the heat, will soon be here in the Pacific Northwest.  Right now, is the moment, to pull o
