All Dolled Up

{this silver gown worn by the beauty Camilla Belle was one of my favorite looks from the Golden Globes}

During the height of awards season, Golden Globes and Academy Awards aren't the only awards being given out. As soon as actors and actresses hit the red carpet, the fashion police is commenting on their looks via their twitters and blogs. I'm here to give you my critiques and comments. And a nod to The Social Network for earning four GGs! I told ya it was a winner.

I've decided to start with the best and go down from there. Emma Stone and Camilla Belle are tied for first, though Stone gets extra points for taking a little more risk with this peach color and the short sleeve silhouette. It's a risk I would be scared to pull off, but she did so perfectly with her golden locks simply pulled back and no distracting accessories to interfere with the simple lines of the dress. Well done, Miss Stone.

The sequins craze has yet to die, and I fully support that. Clearly, so does Anne Hathaway. I think it's hard to do full-on sequins in an evening gown, but I give this my nod of approval. The broad shoulders add a nice touch along with the open back. The muted brown metallic makes the sparkle factor a tad bit more subtle, but this Armani Privé gown look is still sure to turn heads.

While I may be a little biased towards my celebrity girl crush Leighton Meester, I still think she looked very polished and classy at the Golden Globes in this Burberry gown. Her makeup was fresh and she just looked natural and grown-up. And after her performance in Country Strong, I see a big bright acting future ahead for Miss Meester.

Olivia Wilde also literally shined on the red carpet--from head to toe. Her Marchesa gown struck me as a bit too pageant-like at first, but I grew to like it. Heck, if I was invited to the Golden Globes, who even knows how much I would glamorize myself. I say props to Olivia for going all out. And I also definitely don't blame her for showing off her fab Louboutin pumps hidden underneath those layers of tulle.

Now, I hate to hate on people, but I just need to make sure such a crisis never happens again. I actually think this dress could have some potential on somebody else, but something about the lace with the yellow hair (yes, your hair is yellow, Christina, not blonde), red lip color, and magenta nail color. It's just not working. But, I will say congratulations for not getting your dress at the local flower girl shop like Michelle Williams did...

Yes, Michelle, nude is in. Daisy fabric isn't. And probably never will be unless it's Easter Sunday and you're still young enough to hunt for Easter eggs. Don't let it happen again, MW. You're better than this.

It's funny how fast fashion evolves from the red carpet and Hollywood to the halls of my high school. I thought I'd show you some of my favorite looks from last weekend when we had two formals--Junior Cotillion and Senior Girls.

Sequins and one shouldered straps were a common trend seen by the juniors at Senior Girls who got to wear short dresses unlike the senior girls. I've always loved the Alice + Olivia gold fitted dress Lamar is wearing (far left). I like the cranberry color in Kimberly's dress (far right). And I like Bryce's patterned olive green dress which cab be seen in more detail here:

The middle two are my favorites here. Amanda's white dress had an adorable fit and the rosette belted skirt set her apart from the crowd. Macy rocked her sequin dress--nothing that I wouldn't expect from my girl Mace after her gorgeous gown from ASOS the night before at Junior Cotillion.

Macy is on the far left. I liked the color. I liked the subtle sequin detail at the top of the slit. I liked the pulled back hair to complete the sleek look. I loved it all, Mace!

I've taken a liking to navy. It's a good alternative to the oh-so-blah black. I was glad to see two of my besties, Josephine and Liz, lookin' beauty in blue.

Photobucket
I think it's hard to wear a white long dress without looking like you're about to say your vows, but I think Analise pulled it off well.

Photobucket
By far, my favorite dress of the whole weekend was Jaclyn Poujol's pale pink Greek goddess gown. The color looked perfect with her skin tone. It was different, but not too showy. And good thing we'll both be going to Texas next year. I'll be sure to snag that from your closet, JP :)
More to come on my night at Senior Girls.
