Golden Globe Fashion 2013 Flashback! Get Ready - Golden Globe 71st Awards - January 12, 2014



    


In 2013, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were the hostess with the most verve and excitement from a comedy duo to oversee the annual Golden Globe soiree in years.  Once again, this coming Sunday, January 12, 2014 - they are front and center ready to entertain.  Last year, Kate Hudson stole the show in her Alexandar McQueen stunning gown.  The fashion this year is bound to be spellbinding from the following Forever Chic Style fashionistas:  Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Tina Fey, Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Lange, Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, Sophia Vergara and Zooey Deschanel.    Here were last years chosen few from Forever Chic Style, 70th Annual Golden Globes 2013, January 13, 2013 affair published on January 26, 2013. And, the winner was........

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 Vergara - “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

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

Perfume Spritz - My Favorite Things

  Beauty in a Bottle "Perfume heralds a woman's arrival and prolongs her departure." Beauty is hard to describe.  The very essence of what is beautiful varies from person to person, culture to culture and land to land.  Perfume is similar to the idea of beauty. It is subjective.  Perfume is a mystery, and its elixir is a marvel. The scent becomes its own magic.  It is the lingering scent that creates a moment or recreates a memory of a person.  Whether it is spice, floral or warm notes of lavender or vanilla, a scent can bring immense comfort and pleasure.  What does stand the test of time is a signature perfume.  Perfume was created in 1340 for the Queen of Hungary.  Thus, the story of fragrances commenced.  Perfume remains at the top of everyone's list of "feeling good."  Additionally, perfume sales in 2020 were close to $34B.   We all have experienced being around someone who smells divine.  The scent is memorable and hard to capture in a bottle. Even in

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.
