Oscars 2011

So the Oscars 2011 went off without a hitch; I was so excited about Natalie Portman winning for her role in Black Swan. But, I must ask– who was your favorite star of the evening?

Oddly enough, my pick for best dressed was Mandy Moore (although I found myself asking..where has she been lately??). She looked like an angel in her Monique Lhuillier dress..a true star.

Little Golden Men

Oh, the Oscars. The pinnacle of any actor's career and the most beautiful eye candy for the rest of us. This year, I thought it would be fun to think about what I would wear if I went. The shoes! The dresses! The jewelry! could one ever decide?

When I saw Michelle Williams in her Vera Wang saffron yellow dress (with bright red lipstick I might add) I was hooked; it was the most elegant and beautiful look I had ever seen. I loved her hairstyle so much that I even asked my hair stylist to mirror the updo for my brother's wedding!

The other look I might choose is simple elegance like Miss Jolie here. Yes, it's a little black dress, but my how she stood out with those amazing emerald jewels! I definitely think this is a trend on the rise- let the jewelry speak! This would be my second option for my 'lil visit to the Academy Awards; maybe in another lifetime? ;)

And lastly, you can't leave your guy out. Call me old-fashioned, but you just can't go wrong with the classic bowtie.

Now let's head over to Ashley Nicole Catherine for our next stop on Blog crawl: A Toast to the Oscars.

On The Wish List...

Another biggie on my wish list this year is this House of Harlow Gold/Leather Aztec Bangle by Nicole Richie. How cute are these? I could see myself wearing one from work to a weekend party. I've asked santa for the one in black :)

Here are a few gals we all know sporting one:

Congrats Royal Lovebirds!

I'm sure you've already seen it on every channel but in the case you have been living under a rock, Price William just proposed to his 'commoner' girlfriend Kate Middleton. Now what's so funny to me is how every media outlet keeps referring to her as a 'commoner'. I realize it just means that she doesn't already have a title but seriously folks, isn't there another name you can call the poor girl? l As if we live in the dark ages and they're marrying to form alliances between two countries? Pu-leez.

Enough about that...let's talk about something more fun. Oh, I know. That a-mazing rock!

Bjork's House: I Want It.

Located on an island called Elliðaey near Vestmannaeyjar, Iceland, this house was given to singer, Bjork from her motherland as a “Thank You” for putting Iceland on the international map.

..............I'm officially sick jealous.

The Great Muse

I have always been infatuated with Muses. Eccentric and fabulous, the whole world is enamored with not only the artist, but his muse. A few I personally find quite interesting:

Style icon Edie Sedgwick inspired the likes of Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan and left behind a fashion legacy that still lives on today.

Beatles' women traditionally kept out of the group's affairs, but Yoko wasn't content to be a passive sidekick. Frankly, Lennon would be less interesting without the avant-garde frivolities, sloganeering and bed-ins.

From Marc Jacobs to Marc Quinn to Corinne Day, Kate has been a muse to a number of well known photographers, designers and sculptors alike. As Marc Jacobs candidly put it,  “Kate is a muse to a generation … she defines a time, a feeling, that has become part of history”.

Girl Crush

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend...

As I was flipping through the most recent In Style mag I kept noticing socialite Olivia Palermo in almost every single page. And then it dawned on me...I have a girl crush. Josh jealously tries to ruin this girl crush saying that she has some sort of lazy eye but I'm not seeing it, she seems so angelic. Although, once I finally caught an episode of The City  I found myself agreeing with him that she could step up the grace if she just kept quiet a bit more. Shhh Olivia, don't ruin my girl crush, you are gorgeous!

Time to fess up..who is your 'girl crush'??
