Fashion: Golden Globes 2016

Dame Helen Mirren

Lady Gaga

Kate Winslet

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lawrence

Cate Blanchett

Olivia Wilde

Gina Rodriguez

Viola Davis

2015 Tony Awards

A little bit of good. A little bit of bad. A lot of indifferent. It’s disappointing to watch an awards show featuring so many dresses that generate little reaction other than “meh.”

On the bright side, I thought these were winners:

Elizabeth Moss in Oscar de la Renta

My Take on the 2015 Oscars Red Carpet

It’s all so subjective. I loved dresses that others panned…I chuckled at gowns that others thought were glorious. So here it is…one more person’s (pretty much) irrelevant opinions.

Naomi Watts – That black band makes it look like she’s wearing a gown over a tube top.

Jennifer Lopez – If boob tape didn’t exist, she’d never have anything to wear.

Lorelei Linklater – I know she’s just a kid, but this is trying way too hard to be a grown-up…the wrong kind of grown-up.
