Who What Wear

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.

Best Actress

Amy Adams (American Hustle) / Valentino

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.

Red Carpet Report: Ebony 100 Gala

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. 

The Good:

Image
Amy Dubois Barnett- Nice color, nice makeup, nice hair.
Image
Keija Minor
Image
Berry Gordy- The tie sucks, but his smile makes up for it…..a little.
Image
Rhonda Ross- Lovely dress, hair and accessories.
Image
Lee Daniels- Looking good. Suit could stand to be a little more fitted.
Image
Jessica White- Stunning woman, but the dress, hair, and the makeup are just a shade too severe.

 

The Bad:

Image
Carla Hall- No. Just no.
Image
Desiree Rogers- Too much tulle, not enough pretty.
Image
Cynthia Rowley- I usually love her quirky style, but this is just bad.
Image
Eskedar Gobeze- Maybe she was trying to channel Marilyn Monroe, but between the stockings and the shawl made of children’s tears and bunny fur, it was not good.
Image
Mellody Hobson- Too cutesy for a grown woman.
Image
Marcus Samuelsson- Too. Much. Going. On. Can’t focus.
Image
Rachel Johnson- With such great stature, she should have chosen a better color than “preschool puke brown”.
Image
Pauletta Washington- Separately, maybe I could like the hair, the purse, and the dress. But all together, it looks like she’s trying too hard. What’s with the stockings?

The Gorgeous:

Image
Jermaine Jackson, Randy Jackson, Marlon Jackson, and Tito Jackson- Well done dudes. Well done.
Image
LaLa Anthony- This dress is amazing on her body. The hair and makeup look elegant and simple.
Image
Magic and Cookie Johnson- His graphite suit is MONEY and she look SLICK in her black dress.
Image
Nick Cannon- Love Love Love brown with pink and fuschia. The patterned suit against the floral tie and pocket square scream Gentleman. Well done.
Image
Kimberly and Tyson Chandler- He’s a tall drink of water in his suit with the skinny tie. And she looks elegant and poised. Beautiful couple.
Image
Van Jones- Great smile (check), Great suit (check), Great tie (check). Slow clap all around.
Image
Victor Cruz and Elaina Watley- I like a man who thinks outside the Black Suit Box. This is a great color choice for him and Elaina looks cute in her dress and (I Want Those Shoes) heels.

Josie Natori Spring 2014 RTW

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.
