Forever Chic Style - The Lady in Waiting

Gwyneth Paltrow “Snow White Perfection” Paltrow was statuesque in a sleek white Tom Ford confection with a draping cape. The hair, makeup and minimal jewelry completed the ensemble. Paltrow owned the night and was nominated “best dressed” by many for the sheer Old Hollywood apparel     glamour. The red carpet easily framed this beauty and combined with the winning smile and grace Paltrow was “The Lady in Waiting” for the evening.

Angelina Jolie: "Goddess of Hollywood - Love me, Love me not" Angelina Jolie sashayed down the red carpet in a black velvet Atelier Versace gown with a thigh high slit, long curled hair, red lips and a riveting smile. Reporters, cameras and viewers reacted in a crazed frenzy of excitement. The entrance with Brad Pitt and his parents was indeed a sight to behold. After months of being berated as boringly dressed for award affairs, Jolie glammed it up and posed with a leg strategically placed. And, the smile sent a thousand words that Jolie was dangerously back. Instead of a vile of blood, a leg made the entrance that went viral on the Internet. Of course, Jolie a gorgeous beauty, is too thin. However, the entrance and presenting an award with “the pose” was pure Jolie that will not be forgotten. People with substance and fortitude can evolve, can change, can wipe the slate clean of one’s past. Jolie is indeed making a difference with humanitarian efforts worldwide, raising six children, three of them adopted and in a seven year relationship. On the day after the Oscars when tongues were wagging on Facebook, Internet and television worldwide - Jolie was casually seen shopping with future, mother-in-law, Jane Pitt enjoying life. It was reminiscent of Rhett Butler, saying to Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn”.

Forever Chic Style - The Frumpy Frog Queen


Bernice Bejo: "French-Fashion-less” The minty Elie Saab couture gown was indeed gorgeous. Bejo, the lead in The Artist, as Peppy Miller, sadly was not dressed to the nines like the rising "talkie" movie star portrayed in the film. The braided hair and the mint shade with long sleeves was lacking in drama and glamour for this evening affair.
