2017 Emmys Red Carpet

Millie Bobby Brown wearing Calvin Klein

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!

2017 Met Gala Red Carpet

I wanted so badly to get home early Monday evening so that I could have this post ready in time for Tuesday morning as a recap, but of course, we stayed at work a little bit later that night. The good thing about writing this post now though is that I feel like I’m not under a time crunch and I can really take my time with it.

Bee Shaffer is not exactly “in” the fashion world, but her mother is Anna Wintour and every year she continues to stun. This was one of my favorite looks from the evening. Here she is wearing Alexander McQueen with her fiance Francesco Carrozzini. #powercouple

Golden Globe Awards 2017

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.

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.

Oscars 2011

Natalie Portman in Rodarte

I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to be the worst dressed at the Oscars these days because just about everyone has a stylist. I can’t say anything bad about the gowns worn this year, but obviously there are some I like more than others.

2011 Golden Globe Awards

Olivia Wilde in Marchesa

Chocolate brown and gold sequins are the perfect combination for this Golden Globe gown. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Olivia look this good! I also loved that she wore her hair down with her bangs since we are typically used to seeing it done up.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards 2011

Elle Fanning in Valentino Couture

This girl is absolutely everywhere these days! I could have sworn that it was just yesterday that I saw her in photos tagging alongside sister Dakota. Now, she’s been making a name for herself in her films and on the red carpet. This Valentino Couture dress is very appropriate for her. 4.2

Mother Knows Best?

Colby Brin is a 31-year old single who believes that mother knows best when it comes to steering his love life in the right direction. His mother, Geri Brin feels that by helping out her son and launching a website for the cause that she is “casting a wider net.” Maybe she is, maybe she isn’t. I believe in the saying, “Two heads are better than one,” but what would you say if you were the girl who later found out that you were chosen by your guy’s mother?

This story reminds me of the Diane Keaton movie “Because I Said So,” and that was a god-awful movie because Mandy Moore should have stopped acting after “A Walk to Remember.” In that movie, Mandy’s character is “Milly” who is a quirky and awkward girl in a not-so-cute way. She’s the one that needs to have her foot permanently shoved into her mouth. When Milly’s mother Diane Keaton finds out about her horrible track record of dates, she decides to put up an ad for her daughter, which causes a whirlwind of drama later on.

Back to this story though, Colby seems like a decent-looking guy and I’m sure he could get by without his mother. I wonder what’s going to happen to him now that he has a website for this and him and his mother were on The Today Show? Reality matchmaking without the drama in a whole season.

Would you ever let your parents pick someone out for you?

It’s a music post!

My taste in music has gone through many phases. Let me just break it down for you.

Age 0 – 3 – – – – That Barney ish and the theme song to every children’s show. Let’s throw in.. Blossom. That’s not a kids’ show but it will do

Age 4-6 – – – – – Rap. I kid you not. My brother and I used to rap the songs to lyrics. Okay that’s a lie, maybe he rapped the songs and I was the chorus that the female usually sang. Mariah Carey, 112, Ginuwine, Tupac, Biggie, Mase, Blackstreet,

Age 7-9 – – – – – – Spice Girls and your typical pop, mainstream radio.

Age 10-13 – – – – – Britney, Christina, Mandy, Jessica, N’Sync, Backstreet Boys, M2M, BBMak lulz.

Age 14 — – – – – – –  John Mayer and the electronica phase of C89.5, Kaskade, ATB, Paul Van Dyke

Age 15-18 – – – – – – Indie and local Seattle bands – Danger Radio, The Scene Aesthetic, Daphne Loves Derby, This Providence, Gatsby’s American Dream, Forgive Durden

Age 19 – DJ’s and remixes as well as everything above.

Today, I wouldn’t really know what to call the music I listen to. I would say  I listen to a mixture of all of my previous phases, but that doesn’t mean I’m not expanding my library still because I am, so with that I’m going to introduce you to two different artists/dj’s who are both similar and different!

First is Pretty Lights.

Derek Vincent Smith, a producer from Colorado, combines electronic music and simple beats often times accompanied with a drummer to create “soulful music.” He juxtaposes collages of beautiful vintage samples against backdrops of futuristic synthesis and dirty broken beats, creating a sound that can snap your neck while simultaneously shedding your tears.

To listen to Pretty Lights, view his Myspace here

Second is The Twelves!

Yay! Thank you Hudson for introducing me :)

This dynamic duo pair from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil are receiving quite a bit of attention for their remixes! Word on the street is that they have amazing sets and currently their songs are playing all over the clubs in Brazil. I hope they come to the US soon cause I would love to see them!

To listen to them visit their MySpace!

Listen to Metric’s “Help, I’m Alive” remix first!
