Performance of the Day

So I missed Sia’s performance of “Elastic Heart” last night, but it’s a performance that I was looking forward to all week because Maddie Ziegler was going to be perofrming choreography alongside her. As expected, it didn’t disappoint. Is it weird that I felt like my eyes were glued to her moves rather than Sia herself? I guess that’s not so surprising because Sia herself was in one position the entire time and that was maybe done on purpose to give Maddie more of the attention.

House of DVF Returns for 2nd Season

It seems like Brittany Hampton was just announced as DVF’s newest brand ambassador yesterday, but already, it looks like the fashion designer is on her way to find her second brand ambassador and hosting the second season of her show on E! once again. Initially, I didn’t think that I would enjoy this reality show as much as I would, but from the very first episode I was hooked. I think it was impossible for me to miss an episode of it every Sunday so I always had to make sure I was home to catch it. What I loved the most? That the audience gets an inside look at what it’s really like to be in the fashion industry and that these girls aren’t perfect. In fact, there’s something wrong with all of them as they all have flaws and that there isn’t a clear winner. Diane surprised me the most! You never know who she’s going to send home and how she’s going to send them home including inviting a girl into her car with her and telling her the bad news while Diane herself, is on her way to another event. Ruthless. I’ve since followed Brittany on Instagram just to get a glimpse of what she’s been up to her in her job and already she’s been busy at work styling, making appearances, and traveling to DVF store locations across the country.

Sounds like the gig is just as awesome as it sounds! Andddd we’re jealous.

Golden Globes 2015 Highlights

I may have missed the awards show, but I did get to catch Gina Rodriguez winning her Golden Globe for Jane the Virgin and it was amazing! I had heard that her speech was one of the best and lucky for me, it just happened to be the one I caught before I left. I also heard that George Clooney gave a great speech as well which I caught yesterday. Since they were the two that stood out to me the most, I thought that it would make sense to share them again with you all here just in case you missed it! Also, if you haven’t had a chance to watch Jane the Virgin yet, you should! CW made a great decision in picking that series up.

Coffee Meets Bagel on Shark Tank

While I’ve never used Coffee Meets Bagel, I do have lots of friends in the Bay Area that have given it a shot. I’ve heard mixed reviews. Some people have gotten dates out of it, but not any long lasting relationships resulting just yet. I’ve also heard of people getting matches that tend to always look alike. The founders of the app, who also happen to be three sisters, went on Shark Tank and watching them was sooooo uncomfortable. Them speaking in unison reminds me of robots.

Favorites of 2014

Favorite Style Icon: Lily Aldridge

Lily is a style icon both on the runway and on the red carpet. This year, we really got to see her show up at a lot of events dressed to perfection. She was featured in our “Snaps for a Snapshots” several times in 2014 so even by the numbers alone, she beats everyone else. We’re looking forward to seeing more of her in 2015 and someday taking over the head angel slot when Adriana and Alessandra retire.

Runner up: Jamie Chung

RIP Beth

Oh, spoiler alert. Last night on the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead, our beloved Beth exited the show which sent me into a stream of tears both the first and second time I watched her die. I had to watch it a second time because I just couldn’t believe it! Beth was one of my favorite characters on the show because she’s a character that has so much heart and an immense amount of strengh. Never being the one to exert very much violence like her other co-starts, Emily was much more content being the one that kept the peace. It wasn’t until her last season that we really witnessed Beth show just how much power she could have. In fact, we saw that come out in the very last few seconds she was alive. In the clips below, Beth appears on “Talking Dead” the show after “The Walking Dead” which recaps everything that happened in the last episode and in it actress Emily Kinney tears up several times which in turn makes me tear up.

AMA’s 2014 Red Carpet

Kendall Jenner absolutely nailed in Yigal Azrouel on the red carpet last night! The award show wasn’t exactly for her industry or anything like that, but she did present alongside her sisters Khloe and Kylie and she looked the best out of all three!

Music Video of the Day

So I’m probably the last person to watch this music video and before the other day, I didn’t really have any interest in it because while I love Sia – Chandelier just isn’t my favorite song. It was brought to my attention the other day though because I learned that Maddie Ziegler is the star of the entire thing and she was my favorite child on that horrible show “Dance Moms.” Yes, it’s horrible and I’ve watched countless seasons, but these kids are too precious. I’m mostly watching for them and not the moms. Maddie is incredibly talented. It’s kind of amazing that she landed a gig that was so mainstream and is probably going to launch her career further. I’m sure there was totally a plot/story line about this on the show where the moms were all jeal. That seems to always happen.

Performance of the Day

Kendrick Lamar – I

I’ve been jammin’ to this song for the last couople of weeks so I was so excited to be able to catch Kendrick performing this song on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. The only thing that creeped me out was his blacked out contacts. It made me feel like the kid from The Grudge was performing this. Kendrick is an amazing performer though. I caught him a couple years back at Bumbershoot and had an opportunity to work with him when I was doing some booking long ago. It’s great to see how far he’s come though! You may have to watch this video by clicking the link and opening a new window. Sorry – but worth it!
