I don’t like watching “big deal” awards shows, especially the Golden Globes. Well, it’s depressing! I have never been invited and it’s so boring when you are not drinking – as much as I wish I could that is… The Golden Globes is held only four miles away from my house (where I keep “worth of stepping on the red carpet” dresses). Just to think about ALL that champagne that’s being served…sigh… I will never have that many bottles popping under my roof; no, can’t do it, at least not without my husband enforcing an intervention on me the next day. It’s true that he will party with me first; he will sit, sip, and dish; he will laugh, feel up my glass (and his) about 30 times; he will enjoy listening to me challenge myself in guessing the designer of every gown, shoe and handbag; he will even say Angelina Jolie is not his type; but then, he will throw me under the bus the next morning! So I will wait until next year’s Golden Globes; maybe by then I will only need a couple of bottles to keep up with all the fun.
So when Monday came around, everywhere I looked, read, searched or glanced at, had images of all the colors, shapes and details I had missed the night before. Not without a fight, I endured the pain of missing the show. Now I had the extra work of looking for what I had imagined would be there, the last haute couture show. I popped up a bottle of champagne so the hairdos –more like “please don’t ever call your hairstylist again”—wouldn’t scare me as much. Like any other red carpet event, there was the sophisticated, the pretty, the glamorous, the risky and the horrid. Oh, oh…I am shocked I didn’t see any TOM FORD walk the red carpet. Yes, of course that would be my choice!!!
In order: Tilda looks a virginal modern sophistication in Haider Ackermann. Nina Ricci understated black with a bondage (Sweet s&m! HOT HOT HOT) style top is PERFECTION on Rooney Mara. My favorite hollywood girl Emma Stone can’t look bad. The Lanvin choice was age appropriate, and simple but yet adorable.In a gorgeous Givenchy Archive, Jessica Chastain looked simply and eternally GLAMOROUS. It may be the wrong dress, the wrong hair and the wrong person, put it all aside and I still believe this Prada dress was one of my favorites. Of course Angie did it, very predictable! She didn’t make my top choice, it was not fare to the others. She stole the show just like she stole Brad _ heart that is. AMAZING, GORGEOUS … do I need to keep writing? Oh yes, Atelier Versace dress!!!
