Viola Davis in Michael Kors Collection
I spent a great deal of time today glued to my TV. Those hours of the red carpet and the actual award show aren’t hours that I can get back. My two takeaways? Well, I didn’t watch enough good movies in the last year and everyone that tried to pull off a long-sleeved dress this year on the red carpet failed. I did have a couple of favorite looks though and they came from those that surprised me! I always like doing this post the night of the award show so that people can have something to scroll through when morning comes around so with that here are my favorite looks as well as those that missed the mark.
I’m actually tired of this trend with dresses being one shouldered and have been for awhile, however, I love this color on Viola and she looks stunning. I also like that she decided to simplify both her and makeup so that the dress could just do its thing. The head-scratching moment of the night for this dress was when Ryan Seacrest asked her what color her dress was while everyone at home was like “um, can’t you tell what color this is?”
Sarah Jessica Parker wearing Vera Wang
Very rarely am I ever impressed by anything SJP wears. She looks like a marshmallow in this gown and I’m not happy with the way she styled her hair. The only way this look could redeem itself is if it were sleeveless and her hair were let down.
Lupita Nyong’o, in Prada
The red carpet was packed with actors and actresses meant for the best dressed list. We’ve reached the end of the Award Show season (I think) and this was probably the best way to close it out. Lupita has pretty much hit it out of the park for every award show. That alone, should earn her an award.
After six years together and one daughter, the couple have finally gotten married! The two actually could have gotten hitched a lot sooner, but made a promise early on that they would not get married until marriage was legal for everyone. Their decision was made mainly to support their friends who at the time were prohibited from same-sex marriage…until now! Kristen and Dax were married at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office. There is no word yet on whether or not they will have a lavish ceremony with friends and family, but regardless, I’m not sure if that detail ever really mattered that much to them. Congrats to the happy couple!
I heard this trailer premiered at Comic Con this past weekend so there’s no way we couldn’t NOT post it up on Yow Yow! This series was one of my favorites when I was in high school. Not only was the story line just incredible and Kristen Bell such a badass, but there were so many guest appearances in the series that helped keep the show interesting. The Veronica Mars Movie was made possible through KickStarter and it’s amazing to see how much they raised to put this into production. I can’t wait to see the movie when it comes out, but I think I’m going to have to brush up on every season before that happens.
For two years, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have been engaged waiting to get married and holding off until gay marriage was legal and all of their friends were allowed to get married as well. That day has finally come and to celebrate, Kristen proposed to her love, Dax, on Twitter. How romantic! Of course, he said “Yes!” The couple welcomed a baby girl back in March.
“The reason we’re not rushing to get married is because I don’t feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that’s denied to my [gay and lesbian] friends. That’s why we’ve been so hesitant, ” she told The Advocate in 2012. “Dax and I have talked about it a lot, and this issue is very important to both of us. We’re just standing up for what we believe in. Period.”
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture
Everyone kind of knew she’d be wearing Dior since she’s the new face and all, but no one expected her to look this flawless. The cinched belt at the waistline completes this look.
Forever a Veronica Mars fan…
