2018 Golden Globes

Actresses showed their solidarity against sexual harassment and assault in the entertainment industry by wearing black at last night’s Golden Globes. From a fashion perspective, their dresses were among the best I’ve ever seen at an awards event, because…well…black.

My picks for the night:

Jessica Biel

My Take on the Oscars 2017

The clear winner at last night’s Oscars was 16-year-old Auli’i Cravalho, and I’m not saying that just because my friend Sam Saboura styled her. I’m saying that because he did a spectacular job, and she looked stunning in everything she wore.

Emmy Awards — 2015

Alas, last night’s awards show was probably the worst-written thing I’ve ever seen. Andy Samberg was positively goofy, and he seemed to elicit more groans than laughs…in my household, anyway.

The fashions didn’t exactly dazzle me either. While there are a few that made it to my good list, I lost count on the bads. These are the ones I liked:

Lady Gaga [There’s more after her. WordPress is into massive spacing today.]

The ones that missed missed by a mile:

Heidi Klum: aka Big Bird

Joanna Newsom: Every woman should wear a dinner plate on her chest.

Naomi Watts: This dress requires some serious hoiking up.

Naomi Grossman: I can see your belly button, but I’m guessing that’s what you had in mind.

Nazanin Boniadi: Illusion netting at its worst

Padma Lakshmi: Ghastly color and at least one size too small

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.

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.
