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…

#RMGoesGrove

Last year, we watched Rebecca Minkoff hold one of her fashion shows in the middle of SoHo. This past weekend, it was at The Grove shopping mall in Los Angeles. With New York Fashion Week just around the corner, I’m already finding myself getting giddy over the type of presentations and shows we’re anticipating to see. Minkoff’s show was no exception to that. Her show opened with one of our favorite LA-based bloggers – Aimee Song – of Song of Style, model Coco Rocha, and actresses Jamie Chung and Victoria Justice just to name a few. With that, here are our favorite looks!

Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong Trailer

I actually heard about this film a few months back, but this was the first time I’m ever seeing the trailer. When I was growing up Jamie Chung was the Real Worlder I aspired to me – mainly because she was Asian American and pretty tasteful when she appeared on the show in the San Diego season. I also have always loved Bryan Greenberg since his days on One Tree Hill. Who didn’t love Jake AMIRITE?! The two are actually engaged to be married in real life and while I’ve seen them in photos and stuff, I’ve never seen them working together so it will be kind of cool to see how their chemistry translates onscreen.

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

Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Jamie Chung

Wearing: Diane von Furstenberg

Where: Big Hero 6 movie premiere

Readers – since Sunday, I have been working on an “I Like Your Style…” post featuring Jamie Chung and I finally finished it yesterday evening. However since I didn’t save the draft as I went and tried to publish it yesterday, WordPress completely deleted the whole thing. These posts usually take me the longest to do because it requires going back to all of their events and appearances and picking out my favorite looks and finding out who exactly they were wearing. Though I was bummed, I knew I didn’t want to try doing it over again even on my day off as I’d like to spend time on different posts for Yow Yow today. So compromise – this post. Jamie Chung was my favorite Real Worlder of all time and she’s like me – a young Asian American woman – so I’m completely behind her!

She has her own blog as well where she details some of her outfits and many of them we love and would’ve been featured in the post that got deleted. You can check it out here!

Golden Globes After Parties

Sofia Vergara in Zuhair Murad

The red carpet is something that I always look forward to around award show season, but second in line to that is definitely the after party. Most celebrities have a second dress for the event and needless to say, we’re always interested in seeing second looks that aren’t as tame as the first one. Plus, we get to see a whole lot of celebrities that only get invited to the after party and not the award show itself. Sad day for them.
