2018 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Normally, I start this post as soon as the awards show ends, but I knew that this year was going to take a little bit longer. In fact, I cleared the entire rest of my night to write this post because I wanted to take extra care of it. I also didn’t want to fuck this up. Before we get into what everyone wore, I want to say how difficult it is to write this post. Everyone. EVERYONE was extremely beautiful and elegant and this year, it wasn’t about the gowns at all because the color black symbolized something more. It was a movement of women who stood together supporting each other against sexual harassment, sexual assault, gender inequality, unequal pay for women, and so much more. Why is this list even as long as it is? It’s frustrating, isn’t it? We’re also not focusing on significant others and dates to the awards show because this year many actresses chose to bring along with them activists and strong women in this world who are leading these efforts everywhere.

This time around, we’re going to do things a little bit differently. What will stay the same – the photos and the designer. But I’m keeping my critiques to myself because I just don’t think that on a night like this and an award show as amazing as this one was this evening, that we need any more criticism towards women and how they are dressed. And maybe we’ll choose to continue to do it this way from now on.

What I’m really excited to focus on in this post is how these stylists and actresses rose up to the challenge of wearing these black gowns and making it their own. They added pops of color, accessorized, and emphasized their hair and makeup instead of letting the gowns speak entirely for them. Except in a way, they did – powerfully. It will be hard to select my favorites, which I’ll share on my Instagram Stories later on this evening.

And while this evening was moving and inspiring, it’s a reminder to me that there’s still a lot of work to do. That there are men in that audience that are not supporters and instead abusers that have not been called out yet. That while we shifted the focus on the red carpet to not ask about who they were wearing, reporters were not asking enough men about what they were going to do to support the #TimesUp movement or how they felt about it. Very few wore anything, but black on the red carpet, but is this the same “fall-in-line” culture just repeating itself again? Also, wearing a uniform black dress doesn’t solve the problem(s). In high school, these sort of things were just called spirit days. (sorry was that harsh)

There’s a lot to unpack probably in the coming months, but we don’t gotta do that tonight…

2017 Emmys Red Carpet

Whenever I get the chance, I always try to watch the earlier showing of the Emmys. How is this thing still three hours long? For the first time in a long time, I actually stayed pretty quiet on social media this time around. We didn’t live tweet the red carpet this year – mainly because I was still watching the Seahawks game during it and we didn’t tweet during the show. Overall, I think the show had a slow start. Stephen Colbert was okay as a host, but the biggest takeaway for me tonight was all of the people recognized. The most exciting part of the awards show was being able to celebrate a more diverse group of winners than ever before. What did everyone else think?

Looks looks and more looks below!

The Sisterhood Exists In Real Life

Hands down – this had to be one of the sweetest things I’ve read all week. Growing up, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was one of my favorite series. I couldn’t always exactly relate to all of the situations that happened in the books or even felt like I resonated with one character, but there were a series of moments that I maybe identified with spread out between the four characters. After the series was turned into a movie and then a sequel, I was ecstatic. The actresses selected were such a good fit, but sometimes that’s all it is – just acting, right? It’s sometimes rare for people that are cast in a movie to stay friends afterwards, but not these 4.

It was revealed this week that Blake Lively made Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel, and America Ferrera the godmothers of her newborn baby. Awwww!

Blast From The Past

Can you believe that this (top photo) Vanity Fair cover is 10 years old?! Oh how things have changed with our teen queens. A clever reader of my favorite gossip blog, Ohnotheydidnt, recreated the bottom cover to reflect where these stars are now 10 years later and  well – we can definitely say that it certainly isn’t as pretty. We’re talking about you Amanada Bynes!

Ten years ago, Vanity Fair put nine “teen girl stars” on its cover — fresh-faced and talented, these young women were ready to take over Hollywood (and maybe the world). From left to right, Amanda Bynes, Mary-Kate and Alshey Olsen, Mandy Moore, Hilary Duff, Alexis Bledel, Evan Rachel Wood, Raven-Symoné, and Lindsay Lohan filled a fold-out cover spread for the magazine’s June issue.

Post Grad

Alexis Bledel really hasn’t done anything since Gilmore Girls. And her character in The Sisterhood movies were always kind of blah but this excites me to see her being someone completely different. Plus… I really like her love interest but anyways this looks cute.
