So I just got off the Oscars website. I’m very excited about the nominees this year!! We’ve had a great year in film! It’s so refreshing! It seems like we went through a drought there for a while but are now back to blooming fields of cinematic imagery! In case you haven’t seen the complete list of nominees you can check it out HERE. Now we all know that the Academy Awards are to honor those who excel in the field of acting/entertaining/come what may…however, I would argue that the awards are just as much about the Red Carpet and gowns. I can’t tell you how excited I am about who will be wearing what this year. Let me tell you why. Look at the nominees for Actress in a Leading Role: Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Angelina Jolie…and a woman I’ve never heard of Melissa Leo. With names like that how can you NOT have a great night of fashion!!??!! As far as Actress in a Supporting Role I am SO looking forward to seeing what Amy Adams and Penelope Cruz will be wearing! I know that there is a lot of criticism about how stars are in their own world and why in the world should we as the public care what they are wearing…”Shouldn’t they do more for the world than wear some dumb dress?!”…I’ve heard it all before. I understand where these people are coming from but I want you to look at it from a different perspective for a minute. With the downturn in the economy it seems like all we see is gloom. For me seeing these women in all their glory and fabulousness it gives me an escape from reality…even if it’s only for a few hours on a Sunday night. It’s like on a rainy day when just for a moment the sun breaks through and you feel the warmth on your face. So I saw bring on the Oscar, bring on the stars and bring on the FASHION!!!! Remember…BE FABULOUS!
Fabulous Fashion Advice: Cadillac Records! December 2, 2008
So there is a new movie coming out called Cadillac Records. I think it’s going to be GREAT! Adrian Brody and Beyonce star in the film directed by Darnell Martin. It really looks fabulous. It’s all about the rise of Chess Records in the 50s. The part that I’m excited about is Beyonce playing Etta James! If you go to the movie’s website it will play portions of the films tracks. I think the soundtrack is gonna rock! It’s amazing how much they made Beyonce look like Etta. It’s incredible. I think in the next season we are going to see a lot of variations on the fashion in this movie show up on the runway. It’s going to be exciting!!! So be ahead of the curve and find as many pics of the costumes and try your own variation on it. REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!!!
