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

Flexible is a Choice

Spice of Life What does it take to being flexible on the road of life especially when change is at an all time high? Well, for many the simple task of walking will transform the body and mind thus ingraining a "flexible mindset".    Of course, put your phone away or keep on silent.  Allow yourself to hear your own thoughts and unleash your creative side or solve issues.   During the last year and a half, I have been walking with my husband and friends.  We have discovered new places, trails, wildlife, foliage, and forged friendships.  We have been accepting, evolving and creating new elements in our lives.  Along the journey, we have all strengthened our bodies and fueled our minds with conversation while admiring nature and embracing connection.  We became flexible with what we were able to do on a daily basis.    Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had an opportunity to get off the hamster wheel and adjust our lives accordingly.  For some, the adjustment was hard, and

Mom Jeans - Oh NO

  Just Say It Isn't So! "I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity- all I hope for in my clothes." Yves Saint Laurent "Mom Jeans"   are making a powerful comeback in 2021.  I remember women wearing "Mom Jeans" in the day and am stunned that women are slipping down this road again.  The term "Mom Jeans" originated in the in the late 1980's and early 1990's. They were worn by mom's and considered unhip by the youth.  A friend of mine recently asked, "What exactly are Mom Jeans?"   Typically, "Mom Jeans" are higher waisted than the high waist style, often in a light denim wash, creating a longer and flatter hind end.  There is extra fabric throughout and can emphasize a pouch if you have one. The fit is snug at the waist, sometimes with a waist band with a loose and unfitted leg.  Think of pajama pants only with extra fabric at the top.  The next requirement is to
