I really loved the actresses’ collective tastes this year. Kudos to them and their stylists!
Black. Check. Glitz, Green, check. More glitz, check. Here’s something new–subdued, as in subtle shades of pink, from blush to barely there pink to me squinting at the television and saying, “Well then, what color is that?? Nude? Shell?”
Yup, more minimalism and simplicity and femininity. Perfect for the times! Except Sandra, sweetie. You are like our sister, daughter, cousin, best friend all rolled into one. We WANT to see your pretty face. Cut the bangs. I know, I know, what a difference a year has made for you. But, we worry constantly about you! So, cut them! Just a tad! For us, please.
Scarlett Johansson in Elie Saab. My favorite. Maybe because it reminds me of a Fairy Princess dress. Leighton Meesler in Burberry. Diana Agron in J. Mendel. Carrie Underwood in Badgley Mischka.
I believe I love the hint of color most of all, because then the focus was on their faces and their hair style. Did you also notice that there were minimal accessories? Not ten bracelets dripping in diamonds with earrings that cost more than my house, car and all wordly possessions put together.
Interesting…I really loved the universally flattering simple elegant lines, low, low, low, backs and then to the opposite end of the spectrum, glitz with a hint of, what was that? Gasp, the 80′s? Amber Riley of Glee and below, Anne Hathaway in her Armani Prive bringin’ sexy back dress. WOW.
Of course, the first thing I always ask myself is, “Well, would a plus size person wear that?” Well, except for the amazing January Jones Versace gown, Probably! And there’s a good chance we can get into something similar! You remember the gown that January wore! This one..

Note to self: Don’t feel bad, you never could wear something like that and no matter how much you try you never could even when you were four. Don’t stress. This dress looked great on January. I even love her name. (I was born in January. In case you want to send an email birthday wish, it is the 30th. :)
And, we really can take away some good style tips from the first show of the Awards Season!
Neutral tones, play up the face! Simple lines are always in style and can make any dress work. We can wear sequins and look awesome! Low backs, hmnn. Well, not as low as Miss Anne’s, but we can go low, to a point. And, try a different color-such as Emerald Green?
Off we go to the Emerald City! A very nice color and a very nice change. Take a look at Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace and Mila Kunis in Vera Wang. Are those shoulder pads in Angelina’s dress?
