not entirely true.

celeb spotting Uncategorized

the golden globes were back this year, and in all the commercials, the promise was that “the glitz and glamour of the globes was back.” well i know what was back–being safe. the globes are the perfect opportunity to try something different, like something more avant garde or a cocktail dress, but instead there was lots of sameness: strapless gowns, jewels, and updos. there were two women who always make interesting fashion choices that stood out among the crowd. maggie gyllenhall looked amazing in s/s 09 lanvin that she had lengthened from the runway version (one case where this actually worked for the better) and added a signature grosgrain belt. her accessories were standout but kept to a minimum.

and if anyone had any doubt that jennifer lopez was a glamazon, look no further than her rocking this s/s 09 marchesa gown. if you hadn’t seen the pics splashed everywhere, you would never know she had twins not too long ago.

there were a few celebs that took a risk and won. i loved robert downey jr’s varvatos suit with sneakers, america ferrera in a cute odlr one shoulder cocktail dress (could have been a tad less poufy) and i didn’t even mind heidi klum in vintage galanos. but many others (and i’m looking at renee, cameron, drew, and blake lively) didn’t fare so well. i want to see more optimism on the red carpet, not a parade of black/navy or nude colored dresses. here’s to hoping the sag’s and the oscars are much better.
