Grammys 2012, RIP Whitney Houston, Foo = Poo

First off, “Thank You” to LL Cool J for giving a great start to the awards, and offering kind words to Whitney Houston- the prayer was heartfelt. To Jennifer Hudson; Great job…I’m sure it was a difficult feat to tackle, and she did Whitney proud.

Best performance of the night goes to ADELE!!  WOO HOO! Her voice is BACK! And she can SING!!! Congrats to her many wins!

But then the Grammys went SH***Y.. WTF is with 2 performances by Chris Brown and 2 performances by Foo Fighters? Chris should just be a backup-dancer/ choreographer, and The Foo Fighters need to disappear. They sounded like garbage, the looked like garbage.

Foo Fighters = trash... or at least the end of civilized music

Also, something to mention: certain commercials.  the CHIPOTLE ad featuring Willie Nelson was AMAZING. Good job to them- their first ever commercial- and with a message (please youtube it everyone!). Chevy and Target also had an uplifting message to the younger generation, featuring singing youth enjoying music, and singing for their dreams.

So, without further ado- lets get to the FASHION!

The BEST of the night:

Rihanna in Armani

This is AMAZING. She said she collaborated with the designer on this dress, and they NAILED it. Her skin is OUT OF CONTROL PERFECTLY GLOWING. A lot of people are not fans of the new ‘do- but I love… you can never go wrong being BLONDE! 🙂

Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad

FINALLY, stepping out in something more regal than a princess prom dress. Adding the updo- a nice change from the wavy long hair, or blunt bangs- she is channeling Nicole Kidman in Galliano from the Oscars!

Fergie in Jean Paul Gaultier

She looks AMAZING. The COLOR is “WOW” on her… however, I’m not sure of the peek-a-boo underwear… It’s very fashion forward, but I wish it was nude- creating the illusion of “what’s IN there? However, she looks great. It’s refreshing to see COLOR!

Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad.

Who knows why she’s there (presenting)- she is one of the HOTTEST women in Hollywood, and the world. She got to be a little more sexy, however I would have preferred a cream strappy shoe that matched the dress- elongating her legs- rather than the  closed toe chunky heel that grounds her. EVEN SO- One of the best looks.

The WORST of the night:

"Sasha" ??

…Whoever the HELL that is. Everything about this is disgusting. Can you say, “Armenian girl from Glendale?” with that hair & makeup???? And the guns? GROSS.

Robyn

AKA UGLY. Nothing about this is worth talking about. Except this image proves even more dislike for her.

Bon Iver... WTF?

This creature BEAT OUT Nicki Minaj for Best New Artist????? REALLY??!? this is like last year’s upset with Esperanza Spaulding… WHO???? If noone has heard of you, then what the hell is going on? A BIG MESSAGE to this crazy looking “artist”: If you’re up for an award- DRESS like it. This belongs at the bottom of a swamp.

 

Cyndi Lauper in Jean Paul Gaultier

At first, I thought this was Christina Aguilera!! I mean, realllly?? We know she’s a “legend”, but this is a VMA outfit… not a Grammy outfit. The hair? Like 10 years ago. And she isn’t a young woman anymore… No need to be showing any leg. This is an Aadams Family Halloween costume.

Lady Gaga

The new Queen of Pop, Mother Monster, quite DOES in fact look like a Monster. This is too much..  I know, even for her. We expect this craziness from her, but I feel the tone of this years awards garners a need for something a little more subdued. Sometimes it’s about the night, not the person.

Nicki Minaj in Versace

I love Nick, but this is a little odd. And she showed up with an old man dressed up as a pope… hmm.  People were saying it was “so amazing as a fashion moment”, but really- why? Because it has a huge Medusa/Versace logo on it?? ( I LOVE VERSACE, and have since Gianni was alive), but this is just dumb. What’s the point?  It’s not amazing, it’s just A LOT of fabric.  😦 ps: that performance was THE WORST thing I have seen in a long time. It is NOT what she should be presenting to America… how is she supposed to get any new fans now???

Katy Perry in Elie Saab

I will sum this up with Kelly Osbourne’s quote, “This is the perfect dress to match her blue hair”. BARF. Katy- go AWAY! Dress like a singer, not a Smurf. This is the UGLIEST hair. How does she keep a straight face thinking she looks “good” or “hot”???? YOU LOOK STUPID KATY!!!!

Jessie J in Julien Macdonald

The hair is too severe, the makeup is too much. The dress is too busy. This is another disaster, who let’s these people out their hotel like this? Is she moving into goth culture?

***********************************************************************

The “GUYS” … how it’s done horribly… and RIGHT ON!

rick ross

What IS this? This is THE GRAMMYS, this is an AWARDS SHOW. There is also an honoring to someone in the music business who just passed… WHERE IS THE RESPECT??? PUT ON AN APPROPRIATE OUTFIT!! An UGLY a** shirt, jeans and sneakers??? This ISN’T THE F***ING MALL!!!!!

Bruno Mars

This is an example of a horrible execution of a possibly nice look. The pants are TOO SHORT, and the fit is WAY to boxy- if you go with cropped pant- make it a slim fit!  The jacket is also to boxy- the sleeves are bunching around his elbows… TOO MUCH FABRIC!!

Mario Lopez

Perfect example. Sharp suit, fitted well, and a great look for an awards show (when you’re a guest, and not one of the stars for the night). Hair groomed, shirt is nice being color other than standard white. Overall- this is how to dress guys.

***********************************************************************

COUPLES

Wiz Kahlifa and Amber Rose

Look Kelly (Osbourne) – SHE matched her dress to her hair too!!! And Wiz- I’m all for the jacket, but a white tank???  This dear readers, is how you do the awards show looking trashy. Or at least for the VMA’s. Again- these artists aren’t getting the fact that the GRAMMYS  are supposed to have CLASS. If you’re invited- DRESS THE PART.

Adam Levine and Anne V

And the Best Couple of the Night/ Best Dressed Couple / How you’re suposed to look arriving to an awards show AWARD goes to…. Look at them, this is PERFECTION! His perfectly fitting Prada suit, with tie AND pocket square? A MAN! Her effortless hair, great shoes, and perfect Supermodel body in that “dress”??  A WOMAN!! If they keep this up, they are going to be one of THE couples to WATCH!

63rd Emmys…. 63 Red Dresses???

Sunday night: Red Carpet, Emmy Awards, and what seemed to be ENDLESS RED DRESSES! First, I would like to mention that Jane Lynch was perfect with her comedic timing, and her “Jersey sketch” was hilarious!!

Starting off with the RED TREND, here we go with the looks of the evenings… following with those NOT in red dresses.

Nina Dobrev, in Donna Karen Resort 2012. THE BEST LOOK OF THE EVENING!!!!! SHE IS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!!!!!! Please Hollywood, give her more work; I want to see MORE of Nina!

Sophia Vergara, in Vera Wang. AMAZING. She is known for having the “va-va-voom” with the cleavage; but she changed it up, and kept it chic by not showing any this year- and still looking HOT! Love the one shoulder,.. perfect.

Kerry Washington, in Zuhair Murad.  THAT BODY was AMAZING walking to the podium to announce a category. WOW. Whatever she’s doing, keep it up!!!

Lea Michelle, in Marchesa. I LOVE Marchesa, but Lea is getting on my nerve. Just heard Kelly Osbourne say she wanted to pull looks from Marchesa as options tonight, and they said, “no, they are only dressing one person”. Now Marchesa is making me mad. REALLY Georgina Chapman? Lea is bugging the shi* out of me. I don’t know why, but I’m just over her. Too bad, since her career is only just getting started. I love this dress in the back, (front is ok) but she bugs, and she’s OT worth saving a dress over. Sorry.

Adrienne Palicki, from Friday Night Lights. WHO KNEW?!?! She looks Beautiful!!! Megan Fox WHO??

Giuliana Rancic, in the red trend. She better be, since she is a co-host of E!’s Fashion Police. Keeping it simple, and looking good!

Kate Winslet, in Elie Saab. Plain. Simple. Clean. One size too small?

Nancy O’Dell.. love the hair, love the POP of color with the earrings, and of course, her always sun-kissed glow!

Kathy Griffin, and she knows that to stay D-List or higher- Stay On Trend! Watch out for those lips and hair though… looking a little bit like Joy Behar!!!

Connie Britton, going a couple shades darker… and a little oiler, in Maria Lucia Hohen. If only she wasn’t… sweaty??

Kelly Osbourne, in J Mendel. I think she looked great in this color, and loved the color of her hair!!! The little off-the-shoulder trim detail, are perfect, makeup… looks great!

Amy Poehler, in Peter Som. She looks like an older Russian woman named Olga going to the grocery store, boated, and about to run you over with her cart. This is one of the WORST for the night.

Diana Agron, in Roksanda. While she has been on my best dressed, this is NOT. She is Amy Poehler’s Russian daughter, Oksana. Too much fabric, too flashy, too much.

Katie Holmes, in Calvin Klein. Too boring for this. This is a daytime luncheon dress. Not an Emmy Red Carpet dress. BORING!!! (She also forgot to fix her hair).

Cobie Smulders, in Alberta Feretti. WHO?? Maybe it’s her name throwing me off, but this actress from “How I met your Mother” (that’s why- i’ve never seen that show) is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. Hopefully after this look, she wins BEST NEWCOMER, changers her stage-name to something sexier, and we get to see more of THIS!

Kyle Richards, in her shining “Dynasty” moment. I feel like she brought this dress out of her closet when she actually WAS an actress! (j/k Kyle…kinda). I’ve met her before, she’s SO NICE, and I LOVE RHOBH, but this dress is just TOO DATED!!! She also has the BEST hair- WHY are you hiding it?!?!?

Claire Danes, in ANOTHER COLUMN DRESS, by Oscar de la Renta. She looks very pretty, and I know most women stick to what works best, but I feel I have seen her look like this SOOO MANY TIMES….  DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT PLEASE!!!!!

Phoebe Price. I think by that look shes’s giving, she thought she was going to a Royal Wedding, since that feathered (hat?) is on her head. Or maybe a Garden Tea Party with the Queen. Either way, the WHOLE LOOK DOES NOT WORK HERE!!! (We’re “friends” on Facebook, but probably not after this.) Sorry Phoebe…

Gwyneth Paltrow, in Pucci. Like my other half said as soon as she stepped on TV, “YOU’RE 40! You’re a mom, you don’t show your stomach on the Red carpet for an evening award show!!!” Here, Here. She was an OSCAR WINNER, and know looks like she dressing like a teenager. Not cool, Mom….

 

Christina Hendricks, in Johanna Johnson. I’ve never heard of the designer- she probably specializes in HUGE BREASTS. Ok Christina, we’ve ALLLLLL seen them, and we ALLLLL know you have them, but after a while- it just gets boring. I first loved seeing this cleavage, now I’m waiting for something else. NEXT!!!!!

Julianna Margulies, in Armani Prive… or at least thats what she said. I think the top portion is a lamp shade, she had some children take a hot glue gun and crystals to the piece, and then she added some long fabric to hang out the bottom. That is EXACTLY what this looks like.

Steven Cojocuro. This “man” was a STYLIST. An on-air STYLE PERSONALITY. And He STILL dresses like Melissa Ethridge. PLEASE TAKE NOTE MEN: THIS IS NOT HOW YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE! DO NOT COPY THIS EVER!!!!! This is my prime(time) example of WHY I titled this blog, WhoLIED to you!!!!

Christine Baranski, in Zak Posen- I LOVE you!!!! So classy, SO chic, and Perfectly Age Approriate!!! Best Dressed WOMAN of the night… She makes me laugh, she’s a great actress, and she looks amazing!

Paula Abdul… So Paula, “straight up, now tell me” WHY do you make everything look SO CHEAP!?!?!? The dress COULD have looked fine on its own, then she adds the cheap crystal belt, with the chain strap sequin bag (waaay dated). You’ve heard the “less is more” phrase, right? IT APPLIES HERE!!!!

Brooke Anderson…. LOOK! It’s Toddlers & Tiaras all grown up! Yes, I love a barbie- sequins, tan, blonde, and thin, but this is like a TEXAS DOWN HOME BEAUTY QUEEN! Didn’t anyone tell her  Miss Universe happened a couple nights ago???

 

 

 

Golden Globes 2010: Gowns & Getups

As always, Award Show Red Carpets  give every fashionista anxiety: “WHO WORE WHAT???” And throughout the show, there are the “ooh’s and aah’s”. Then there are the, “WHAT THE F***? WHO’S HER STYLIST?? DOES SHE EVEN HAVE ONE? WHO LIED TO YOU????

Thankfully there wasn’t too much of that this year; mostly beautiful, some could have been tweaked, and a few: JAIL TIME SHOULD BE SERVED.  I have the WORST at the end…enjoy! 🙂

Here we go:

***THE HOLLYWOOD A-LIST***

Catherine Zeta-Jones in Monique Lhullier. Emerald green was worn by many last night, and this was one of the best of that color. The shape is gorgeous, Catherine (as ALWAYS) is one of the most BEAUTIFUL women alive, but the material reminds me of astro-turf. I know, I know: I love Monique too, and I’m sure in person, the material is wonderful, but if it looks like grass to millions of viewers, it probably is not the best PR move.  (Catherine is TOOO gorgeous for that).

Ann Hathaway, in Armani Prive.  This girl went from petrifing to pretty in Princess Diaries; a disaster to diva in Devil wears Prada, and now: a girl to GORGEOUS. Ann: THANK YOU! Beautiful hair, face, dress- that open back to JUUUUUSSSST above the butt, looked absolutely amazing. My vote towards best of the night 🙂

Nicole Kidman in Prada. Pretty face, great slender body, nice dress. Simple. I think the simpleness with the bow is destroyed with adding a sparkly shoulder piece. Ehh…. NEXT

Sandra Bullock, in Jenny Packham. I don’t mind this, she looks great, but it’s a lil…. boring? could there be such a thing as maybe, “Beautiful boring?” I love Ms. Sandy B, (and please don’t hate me anyone), but if you look quickly at this photo, you could mistake the posturing and hair for Bai Ling…. (an Amazing version of Bail Ling, of course). I liked the bangs, but then thought, wait, she looks asian…

Angelina Jolie, in Versace. I think this is the first time in my life I though,”wait… i don’t like this” when it came to a thought about Angelina. To me, she is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, it borders on OBSESSING how AMAZING her FACE, BODY, EYES, EVERYTHING ABOUT HER IS. But this dress fell short of that. All I ended up caring about was seeing her and Brad all cozy all night. Aww…

Julianne Moore, in Lanvin…… WTF??????????? I love her as an actress, and love all her characters she’s played. BUT THIS DRESS IS HOOOOOOORRRRIBLE! The one arm thin, half dress thing has GOT TO GOOOO!!!!!! NO, NO, NO! WHO LIED TO YOU??? YOU are BEST FRIENDS with TOM FORD! WHERE IS A NEW TOM FORD DRESS????????

Scarlett Johanssen, in Elie Saab. This outfit says one thing to me: BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN!! What is this lace thing? with the hair pulled up high and back??? ALL it needed were the streaks, and she would have been that character!!!

Natalie Portman, in Victor & Rolf. She is the Golden Globe sweetheart, EVERYONE and their mother is talking about her and BLACK SWAN. What everyone is also talking about is, “Why This Dress??” We know the movie is eerie, we know she is now pregnant… is she trying to show us a sweet side? If so: I don’t want to see that! I want Goddess! This rose thing is N.C. (not cute)… We all remember the misfortune that was Charlize’s rosebud boobies, right???

Jennifer Lopez, in Zuhair Murad. Remember the song, “My Love don’t cost a thing?” Well, this unfortunate communion/catholic wedding dress is no exception. She supposedly wore $5 million in jewelry….. too bad I don’t see that here. I guess you can still have a lot of money, and still look blah. Even her hair, just in a ponytail? NOT APPROPRIATE FOR A RED CARPET! She may be a beautiful woman, but no excuse: put in some effort. She is currently the FACE of Gucci, with her kids: WEAR A STUNNING GUCCI! PLEASE!!!

Halle Berry, in Nina Ricci. No matter what she wears, this woman is PRICELESS. LOOK AT THAT FACE! THAT BODY! THAT SKIN!!!! Although I’m not a fan of the half dress, half gown thing; i think I like this. Of course I wish it was one or the other, but seeing this photo again, thank God I get to see some leg! Voting MOST GORGEOUS of the Night!

***YOUNG HOLLYWOOD***

Leighton Meester, in Burberry. It may seem a little old fashioned at first, but then the shoes!, the slit!, the tailored sleeves!, and of course: that coy cherub face I love. I actually really like this on her. TEAM BLAIR!

Emma Stone, Calvin Klein Collection. We know her from “Easy A”…. here, she gets an A+!!!!! I LOVE her BLONDE!!!! And she’s TAN! and that perfect shade of peachy orange looks Great! I hope this got Casting directors attention, because I want to see more of this!!!! 🙂

Olivia Wilde, in Marchesa. I’m still not sure… I LOVE that its a “princess” dress, and the colors are dark and sexy…., but her unbrushed-hair look bothers me. I know if she did an up-do, it might look TOOO princess-y, but then again, it IS a red carpet!!! Maybe some big Giselle styled curls…. I just need more here. Dress is being wasted 😦

Jennifer Love Hewitt, in Romona Keveza (a bridal dress maker). I think she looks great here, she does it right with the hair, makeup, skin. Very Pretty. The dress looks a little like the structured Marchesa worn by Kate Hudson a while ago, but otherwise: Good Job J Love! I was rooting for you to win for “The Client List!”

Megan Fox, in Armani Prive. THE TEMPTRESS OF THE NIGHT. THE SEDUCTRESS. The Bad Girl in Hollywood that you have inappropriate thoughts of. THIS IS HOT!!!!!!!!!!

Mila Kunis, in Vera Wang. One of “the other green dresses”.  HOT GIRL, great color on her. I think the shoulder is too wide, too much fabric… don’t really like the poof on it either. Had it been strapless, (and with a better push-up), this would have been STUNNING. However, that face saves it. I can’t wait to see more, and hope that her Oscar dress SCREAMS Body hugging!!!!

Christina Aguilera, in Zuhair Murad. I’m not a fan of the mermaid tail, but I do like this dress; I like the way it curves, and the bust line is a great fit. But WHY the SAME RED LIPS with the SAME BLEACHED HAIR????? PICK SOMETHING ELSE PLEAAASE!!!!! It’s driving me CRAZY! Bring back some makeup moves from STRIPPED! Give me SEXY SMOKEY EYES!!! ANYTHING!!! And Christina: whats with the WEIGHT??????????

*** TV LAND***

Eva Longoria, Zac Posen. We all know she likes her trains, I think it comes with the Napolean Complex: the shorter you are, the grander the dress. While the top is modest, and simple (almost too much actually.. the top half looks like a secretary), the bottom reminded me of URSULA in “The Little Mermaid”. If anyone with a brain knows: that correlation should not happen.

Sophia Vergara, in Vera Wang….. or as she said, ” Vera WONG”. Hey Gorgeous Hot Fiery Temptress Beautiful Creature: Make sure you say the name right!!!! I love her on Modern Family, that accent makes me Crazy in love with her, and seeing her at Nobu once made my heart stop. However: red dress, on red carpet-Can get lost. And I don’t want this lady to get lost!

Leah Michelle, in Oscar de la Renta. Usually, she is a favorite of mine, because she chooses mature gowns. This time, it looks sloppy: The hair hanging in the face, with the excess fabric drooping down the side of her…. this is TOO MUCH DRESS for her… to big, too much, too sloppy.

Sarah Hyland, in Max Azria Atelier. You may not recognize her, but she is the eldest daughter in Modern Family. That’s right: all grown up, and BEAUTIFUL!!!!!My jaw dropped when I saw this; no jeans, or little outfits, but emerging as a woman! She looks SOOOO Good! Definitely the VOTE for BEST NEWCOMER!!!!! 🙂 Congrats!

 

***THE WORST!!!!!!!!!!***

Heidi Klum and Seal; she in Marc Jacobs, he in something to be burned. WHAT IS THIS MESS????? This is GROSS. His outfit is UGLY. UGLY SHOES. What is that suit: leather??? Gross. And take your glasses off, this isn’t MTV awards, this is for the Golden Globes! What are you doing here anyway? And Heidi: YOU RUN AN EMPIRE revolving around FASHION, and THIS UGLY ASS DRESS is what you wear to a RED CARPET AWARDS SHOW?????!?!?! SHAME ON YOU.  This Picture is Ugly to look at.

Tilda Swinton, in Jill Sander.  (sigh…) I know you’re a little kooky, and almost like the older version of a Chloe Sevigney with your outfit choices, but WHAT THE HELL IS THIS? Its like the fashion house tried to make a 1-piece version of what Sharon Stone wore…in the 90’s!!! Sharon wore a ball gown skirt, with her the husband’s shirt… and it LOOKED GOOD! Here, this is a GIANT DIAPER DRESS. BLUGH! ( the ONLY ONLY ONLY thing I like: is the pink shoe that’s so unfortunately being hidden).

Julianna Marguiles, in vintage YSL.  Sometimes, vintage needs to stay there. BORING BORING BORING. YOU LOOK LIKE AN OLD LADY.

Mandy Moore, in Monique Lhullier. Sorry Hon, Catherine Zeta got the better dress from this designer. Looks like either Monique wasn’t involved with this dress AT ALL, or it’s a lie! THIS IS BORING AND UGLY. BLAH. Brush your Hair!

Helena Bohnam Carter, in Vivienne Westwood.  (WTF……. SIGHHHHHHHHHHH…………) Where do I start…. the hair? the mismatched shoes? the dress? How about this woman’s sanity. I would REALLY LIKE TO KNOW THIS: WHAT GOES ON IN THAT BRAIN WHEN DRESSING FOR AN AWARDS SHOW????? WHAT DRUGS/ PRESCRIPTIONS/ HALLUCINOGENS/ ALCOHOL  ARE YOU TAKING??? What makes this OK?!?!?!?! Can’t someone recognize that she’s not right in the head? That she’s a little bit CRAZY????  In her OWN word’s from Alice in Wonderland: “OFF WITH HER HEAD”. This GETUP is such an insult to the establishment which puts on theses awards. She should not be allowed to be there if she makes a mockery of recognizing talent. Keep your ugly fashion choices to yourself.  INAPPROPRIATE!!!!!!!
