Coming Together with Fashions of Determination

Last night, the talents of film and television came together, uniting as one to celebrate the incredible, exciting past year in entertainment. Actors dazzled under the stage lights, supporting their peers and the remarkable entertainment industry, as a whole. No matter comedies or dramas, movies or television shows, there was this undeniable sense of coming together, of enjoying the moments that they, as actors, have all shared and experienced together. With spirited acknowledgment and heartfelt remembrance, the night was warm and full of delight. Last night, the talents of film and television came together for a magnificent show–the Screen Actors Guild Awards. And last night, fashion was out for all to see.

The fashions at this year’s SAG awards were beautiful. Whether simple or decorative, each design was stunning in its own, memorable way. On the red carpet, fashions of glorious structures and intricacies glistened with each flash of the camera. Boldness and strength delightfully appeared–each creation had an exquisite, vivid independence. My three favorite looks of the night…


Sandra Bullock looked absolutely fantastic at the SAG awards. Her Lanvin gown was stunning in its breathtaking combination of timeless, classic design and bold modernity. There was an unmistakable originality to the creation. The large, glistening bow and high, fresh slit were fascinating together–the past was used in unison with the present. With a vibrant emerald color and a shining material, Bullock did not shy away from taking a risk and wearing something strikingly elegant. Paired with glistening golden heels, the look was fantastic!


This purple sequined, form-fitting Dior gown sparkled colorfully and magically on Jennifer Lawrence. The dress was a shining creation of beauty and elegance. The dress was a joyful creation of fun-filled kaleidoscopic hues. Lawrence walked down the red carpet in a strapless design that made her glitter. Timidity did not exist in this excellent look. Reticence  was not the goal. A fearless energy was there. An energy that was left to glow and make a statement. Jennifer Lawrence, with her sleek, short hair cut and strong earrings, looked great in this radiant design!


Lupita Nyong’o looked magnificent in this bright, turquoise fitted Gucci gown. This design was simply extraordinary in its standout color and intricate ornamentations. The enchanting turquoise hue lacked fear and had much beauty. The bold color gave the gown a voice. The gold accented, flowered encrustations on the upper half of the gown allowed the dress to leave the ordinary and delve into something exceptional. The detailings added something spectacular to the fluid gown. Lupita Nyong’o shined in this terrific, special design!

And now the Oscars…


And the Oscar goes to…

With statues full of golden, hidden treasures and stunning talents full of praiseful skill and determination…

With directors, producers, editors, actors, actresses, designers, screenwriters, and more, coming together and recognizing the achievements of those that surrounded them…

With fun-filled laughs and musical numbers that held great energy and regard…

The Oscars was a night to remember…

And the fashion was worth remembering as well.

Closing the award show season with shimmering excitement and romantic, pale hued grace, the fashions of this year’s Oscars red carpet were absolutely stunning. And the actresses who wore them looked like perfection. With a wonderful, breathtaking combination of metallic dazzlements and light, romantic accents, the looks on yesterday’s red carpet left people with feelings of both bright vivacity and glowing charm; the looks on yesterday’s red carpet allowed people to live in both zesty, flavorful worlds and   whimsical, chimerical universes. Whether it was Nicole Kidman’s sparkling L’Wren Scott gown or Zoe Saldana’s lilac Alexis Mabille Couture creation, that fashions at the Oscars were magical.

Here are my favorite three looks…

Amy Adams looked like a true princess in her strapless Oscar de la Renta ball gown. The look was entirely enchanting, with complementing, beautiful powder-blue shades and cascading, seemingly airless ruffles that tapered out effortlessly behind her. The bodice on the top added to the overall sophistication and delicacy of the look. Adams glided on the red carpet with experienced poise and frilly wonder. With dazzling diamonds, Adams radiated in both her majestic, consuming glory and delicate, refined elegance.

A bold, unwavering woman walked down the red carpet this past Sunday, embracing the power of couture and radiating in minimalistic design. And her name is Charlize Theron. This sleek, modernized, white Dior Haute Couture gown looked incredible. With its tight fit and glistening accentuated peplum waist, the gown shined in its confidence and refined, seductive edge. The structured tailoring and flowing train only added to the gown’s glory. Charlize Theron looked brilliant in her sharp, contemporary masterpiece, especially with her fierce, outspoken pixie cut.

Jennifer Lawrence is a true gem in Hollywood who, I believe, deserved the Oscar for Best Actress tremendously. Her natural talent is undeniable. Her genuine personality is unmistakable. And both of these qualities gleamed in their beauty on the red carpet this past Sunday. Jennifer Lawrence looked stunning in this blush, pale pink Dior Haute Couture gown. The grand, voluminous design looked extraordinary with its timeless bell-shape and flowing, rich train. The gown was full of luxury, enveloping superb, shining fabrics and details of light, sweeping textures. Finishing the look with a lovely diamond necklace trickling down her back, Jennifer Lawrence looked like a winner.

Marvelous in their simplicities and encrustations, in their sleek and resplendent natures, the fashions of the Oscars 2013 are worthy of remembrance…

They are worthy of their own Oscars!

A Golden Red Carpet

Starting off the award season in the chilly Californian air, The Golden Globes was a night filled with heart-warming inspiration and tantalizing radiancy. It was a night of joyous laughter, meaningful tears, and wonderful gratification. It was a night where everybody came to be themselves, relaxing in an atmosphere of pure pleasure and welcoming community. The Golden Globes intertwined the television and the movie screen, the t.v. show with the aesthetic film. And it was also a night where fashion came to life on the red carpet.

Exhibiting the raw qualities of seductive allure, edgy rock, encrusted power, angelic grace, colorful brightness, and simplistic pleasure, the fashions on the Golden Globes red carpet gravitated the eyes and the mind. The fashions created an undeniable confidence, an unforgettable presence of golden strength. With both riskiness and calmness, daringness and easiness, the designs that graced the red carpet were wonderfully combined into a mixture of pure paradise. Whether it was Nicole Kidman’s sheer, seductive bodice, or Katharine McPhee’s plunging neckline; whether it was Amanda Seyfried’s vintage, innocent detailing, or Anne Hathaway’s white, timeless sparkles, the fashions on the Golden Globes red carpet were magnificent. However, there are some looks that I loved more than the others. My favorites from the magical night…

Jennifer Lawrence looked absolutely incredible on the red carpet this past Sunday. In her classic, strapless, red Christian Dior Haute Couture gown, Lawrence, with the help of the great Raf Simons, paid homage to the 1940s, going back in time to the proud, Dior full skirts and tight, nipped-in waists. This retro feel gave the look, as a whole, even more power and substance. With an encircling shiny belt and an indulging, structured bodice, Lawrence glistened in both her bright, carefree personality and glamorous, elegant appeal.

Straying away from the typical designers that emerge on the red carpet during award season, Michelle Dockery wore a rich, creamy white and gold dress, created by the upcoming designer Alexandre Vauthier. This brilliant gown, with the perfect, polished silhouette, gave off a feeling of regality, absorbing royal accents of golden hue and bright, seemingly metallic shine. The floridity of the gilded details was exquisite. And the high neckline and dramatic shoulder pads only added to the simple, shimmering beauty that radiates off of the luxurious gown and off of Dockery herself.

This long-sleeved, black Alexander McQueen gown was the perfect combination of bewitching enchantment and legendary elegance. Kate Hudson dazzled on the red carpet, bringing with her an air of sensual determination and compelling thought. This dress is remarkable, not only because of its sleek frame and shape, but because of its keyhole detailed cut-out and sparkling gold encrustation. These gold, beaded accents on the neckline and on the belt of the dress made the McQueen creation even more striking. The dress encompasses a wonderful, imperial artistry that is expressive and full of much value. On the red carpet, Kate Hudson looked full of artistic and powerful riches.

The red carpet truly shined this past Sunday, absorbing designs that glittered in both their meticulous detail and uncomplicated feature; designs that glittered in their incredible inspiration and deep meaning.
