the golden globes. did you watch? which was your favorite look? i have to admit, i didn't watch the show straight through in its entirety. from what i did see, it looked like the ladies kept it pretty safe this season. the riskiest ensembles were worn by lea michele and zooey deschanel, and the dresses weren't even that crazy. i guess everyone was overly concerned about getting on the "don't" list, or maybe the economy has an affect? down economy equals more conservative dressing? anyway, i realize my opinion counts for a hill of beans, but here are the looks that i really liked.
- rooney mara in nina ricci - any woman that can go from dragon tatoo to this show stopper, deserves to be on some kind of "do" list.
- kristen wiig in bill blass - she's almost unrecognizable! she kept her look really polished and simple, which i can totally appreciate.
- mila kunis in dior - again, simple and unfussy. added bonus: this is a dress you can shake your rump in - a definite criteria when selecting an awards dress.
- sarah hyland in vintage dolce & gabbana - i am really favoring lace right now, so this look really stood out for me.
some noticeable trends:
though i'm not a huge fan, the mermaid silhouette was out in full force this season. i also noticed a lot of nude (dresses and make-up).
last, but certainly not least, what did you think of ricky gervais? i thought he was a bit tamer than last year. in a recent interview with matt lauer, gervais said something that really stuck with me. when lauer asked him how he felt about people describing his humor as offensive, he replied, "i think offense is taken, not given. if you don't let yourself be offended, then you're not offended." it's so true. you - and you alone - decide how something will affect you. whether you let something affect you negatively or positively, it's on you. whether you have a good day or a bad day, it's up to you. "choose wisely", said the power of positive thinking. [wink]
