Well hello again my lovelies!  Welcome to the first blog of the New Year!

Awards season is officially here!!

If you watched the Golden Globes you probably saw all the glitz and the glamour from the red carpet. The gowns, the jewels, the perfect hair and makeup… Well for some people!

Then there were those that forced us to sit and wonder… what in the world were their stylists thinking! 

So here are the Best and Worst dressed choices from Kathy, myself, and one of our clients who had such a fantastic description of oh so many starts style.

My best dressed was by far was Evan Rachel Wood. Wearing a Gucci Premiere gown and Fred Leighton Jewels, Wood sparkled! An emerald concoction of sequins, beads and feathers, the gown fit her perfectly and was complimented by simple but elegant jewels! This was the only gown on the red carpet that made my jaw drop. 

My close second for best dressed was Zooey Deschanel in Prada, with Van Cleef and Arpels Jewels. Talk about sassy!! I love the mix of green and black. No one but Zooey could have pulled this dress off and the hair and makeup was a perfect match to this chic yet quirky dress.

Kathy’s best dressed were Charlize Theron, Kate Beckinsale, and Reese Whitherspoon.

Charlize glowed in a blush pink Dior gown, with touches of Cartier jewelry. This gown was frothy yet elegant and as usual Charlize wore this gown with effortless grace.  

Kate Beckinsale was glowing perfection in a fit and flair Roberto Cavalli gown with corset type bodice. This is the thing that Hollywood stars of days gone by are made of.

Reese Witherspoon wowed in a fiery red Zac Posen gown with touches of Fred Leighton jewelry. We always expect great things from Reese and this year was no different. She is the only person who could pull off slightly tussled sexy hair with a full on glam gown and make it look oh so natural!

I would also like to give major props to Ariel Winter. This young lady is 14, and clearly someone who is managing this girl has the presence of mind to make sure that she dresses like a 14-year-old girl, not a 24 year old. She wore a fabulous, violet, Dolce and Gabbana dress. Perfection!

And now for the worst…. I like to think of this as when bad clothes happen to beautiful stars.

By far my worst dressed was the future Mrs. Timberlake, Jessica Biel in Marc Jacobs… I mean this girl has a rockin’ bod and such a beautiful face! Why on earth would you or your stylist pick out a dress that simply does nothing for you! Grandma called and she wants her doilies back!

And this year I wanted to include this review of the red carpet by one of our lovely clients with a wicked sense of humor and style!  So here are Rhonda’s Picks for best and worst dressed at the golden globes!

Pretty ladies in bad dresses: 1) Michelle Williams, 2) Jessica Biel, borrowed great great grannies wedding gown and one of her boobs, for a total of three, 3) Julianna Marguiles, Alexander the grape otter pop.


Best by far, Emma Stone, distant second Zooey Deschanel, and I liked the hair and makeup.

Older ladies who should know better: 1) Meryl Streep (who actually seemed annoyed to be winning "would you please just recognize somebody else for a change?") cowgirl complete with miniature horse hidden under her skirt. 2) Madonna in an overly busy dress designed by Lourdes? 3)Tilda, Tilda, Tilda - at least your very weirdness is a form of consistency.


And there you have it my dears… The best and the worst. Now we wait with great anticipation for the Oscars!!
