Last night, everyone’s imaginary high school cool couple stepped out to promote their latest movie, Southpaw, at the ESPYS. Continue reading “Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal Give Serious Suit Envy at the ESPYS”
Okay, so I know I’ve been AWOL for a while now. I finally moved into a lovely flat in the city and I am ready to jump back into the blogging world. As you all know, the academy awards will air next Sunday on March 3rd. I cannot wait to see what everyone will be wearing and which movies will receive the most the awards. Last year, I had actually seen the majority of the Best Picture nominees. This year I’ve only seen three- American Hustle, Wolf of Wall Street, and 12 Years A Slave. I loved all three movies, but I’m rooting for 12 Years A Slave (My fingers are crossed Steve McQueen! So are my legs, but that’s a different story for another time).
Now, my favorite part of any awards show is the red carpet so I can see what people are wearing and so I can laugh hysterically at the stupid questions the interviewers ask and the awkward moments that inevitably occur. Everyone is already speculating on what fashion darling Lupita Nyong’o is going to wear, and I am ready to get in on that action as well. So, without further ado, here are my picks for what the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominees should wear.
Amy Adams (American Hustle) / Valentino
Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine)/ Jenny Packham
Sandra Bullock (Gravity)/ John Galliano
Judi Dench (Philomena)/ Valentino
Meryl Streep (August: Osage County)/ Elie Saab
Best Supporting Actress
Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine)/ Oscar de la Renta
Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle) / Christian Dior
I would love to see her in the spunky peplum pants suit, but the dress is gorgeous as well.

Julia Roberts (August: Osage County)/ Jenny Packham
June Squibb (Nebraska)/ Badgely Mischka
So, obviously my invitation was lost in the mail. I mean, that’s the only logical explanation as to why I was not at the Ebony 100 Gala, which was last night, in New York City’s Jazz at Lincoln Center. But, me being the bigger person, I will not hold grudges. I will be an adult and move on and talk about what really matters: what people wore on the red carpet.
Talk about vibrancy! This collection may start off a tad bland and tea stained, but it quickly warms up to eye popping colors, oversized bauble necklaces (love!) and slinky, sexy dresses that I can totally see Angelina Jolie or Olivia Wilde wearing down the red carpet. My favorite piece is the pink and orange pantsuit. That’s the kind of outfit that will take you places. So good…so good.
