67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards 2015 - The Red Carpet

Let the Games Begin!  

 

Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Better Call Saul, Homeland, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Downton Abbey, Modern Family, Veep, Bloodline, Ray Donovan, Nurse Jackie, The Good Wife, Parks and Recreation, American Horror Story - Freak Show, Wolf Hall, How to Commit Murder to name a few....


Jon Hamm, Viola Davis, Peter Dicklage




Game of Thrones (HBO)


The 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards list of winners accurately assessed the viewership fervor for the best theater in town!  Of course, Game of Thrones grabbed the Outstanding Best Drama for 2015, which was by far the most emotional, complex and moving show of the year.   The "walk of shame" scene was utterly gut wrenching and riveting.   And finally, Peter Dinklage won Outstanding Best Supporting Actor for his role as Tyrion.  Who can forget the infamous scene, "I did not do it!" in the previous season of Game of Thrones?   For Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama series, Jon Hamm also assuredly won for the stellar performance as the dashing and dysfunctional Don Draper entrancing audiences for seven years until the curtail call in 2015.  Mad Men is the iconic series of the decade - brilliant, savvy, transfixing and completely unforgettable. The fashion is refreshingly compelling and pushing a resurgence for dressing with style.  The hilarious HBO show Veep is so presidential winning the vote for Outstanding Comedy Series.  Don't forget the ladies taking the spotlight with Viola Davis for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama in How to Commit Murder and Julia Louis Dreyfus, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy for Veep.  And the list of winners goes on and on. Congratulations to all!  The "Telly" is the place to see the latest and greatest in film.


As for The Red Carpet Fashion...... 


The Telly diva's graced the red carpet at the Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles, in resplendent shades of hues and glitter under unbearable 100 degree heat.  The sizzling heat waves created dripping and shiny attire festooned on the ladies and gentlemen.  The fashion mavens donned in black stood out along with vibrant pink a few sparkles and white with black.

Sophia, once again, slays the red carpet in St. John Knits captured the audience with this figure hugging shimmering number. 









Forever Chic Style - The Frumpy Frog Queen

Heidi Klum


Klum donned a frightening yellow Atelier Versace feathery concoction which screamed notice me please! And, this number achieved the objective but for all the wrong reasons.  This diva, a star of Project Runway, seems to forget the importance of style on a red carpet.  On the other hand, when wanting attention, Klum went to the end of the fabric roll and garnered the Frumpy Frog Queen for the evening.








 Wise words from Coco Chanel.....

"Act your age! Dress for the occasion and never wear something different or frumpy especially when fit and lovely.  All it signifies is need for attention. Did Audrey, Grace or Sophia follow the "attention grabbing" path? NO! A sophisticated beauty and artist must shine with self confidence wearing the perfect outfit."

 

That's All!

If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, every…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…
