Recap of Fashion - from March 3, 2012 - 84th Oscars 2012, Forever Chic Style Overview

The fashion for the evening was comprised of Old Hollywood glitz with snowy whites and frosty creams, glitter, pops of color, decadent black, vivid reds and embellishments with jewelry showcasing elegant fashion. The red carpet theme was a flashback to yesteryear and those participating relished the occasion and dressed to impress with elegance and grace. Everyone looked smashing brilliant. The film, The Artist, stole the show winning Best Actor, Best Director and Best Movie. Yes, Old Hollywood glamour was on the red carpet in 2012.
 
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.

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer. 

Pops of Color

  Spring is Coming Pixabay Photo - No Attribution Required "Colors are the smiles of nature." Leigh Hunt I think the time has come to sport bright colors and launch ourselves into Spring 2021.  Images of orange, pink, red, yellow and lime greens come to mind.  March is around the corner and soon the flowers will begin to open, blue skies may appear, and a fresh new world is about to burst forth.  I also get the strong sense that people are beginning to feel confident and resuming some of their favorite activities.  For instance, where I play tennis masked, several of my friends have recently come back.  Seeing their twinkling eyes and masked faces brings joy to my heart.
