What A Great Find! Emerald earrings, à la Jolie

photo

On an impromptu shopping trip to New York & Company, I found these gorgeous emerald-like drop earrings, worthy of the red carpet.  Inspired by Angelina Jolie’s pair that she wore to the Oscars, these are a fortunate find during award show season AND they were deeply discounted!  I’ve been looking for a near exact replica since I fell in love with Jolie’s and these are very similar.  I also snapped up the matching bracelet.

Oversized statement earrings like these reprised their role on the red carpet at the Golden Globes last Sunday.  While there are no black tie events in my future, I look forward to wearing these with a black cocktail dress and suede pumps on a date night.

Happy Award Season!

The Golden Globes 2013: I laughed, I cried, I actually saw more than The Dresses!

Here are a few of my favorite things from the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, from the fashion, jewels and beauty to the moments that left an impression!

Jennifer Lawrence Getty

“I beat Meryl!” quipped Jennifer Lawrence when she won the globe!  The reference to First Wives Club (and guts to jest with Mrs. Streep) makes it official.  She’s more than an “It Girl.”  She’s here to stay.

Lawrence was gorgeous in a red-coral Dior Haute Couture gown.  I love the color!  The smooth metallic belt and box clutch ads a bit of edge.  These belts have appeared on several red carpets now and I can’t wait to get my waist in one!

Julianne Moore looked the opposite of the character she played in Game Change – chic and overjoyed for her nomination.  She wore a Tom Ford dress and diamond chandelier earrings.

Catherine Zeta Jones

Catherine Zeta Jones presented a clip from Les Miserables wearing an ivory Jenny Packham gown with sheer sleeves, shimmery embellishments and a romantic silhouette.  The style is somewhat reminiscent of the twenties, my favorite era, and this is one of my favorite dresses of the evening.

Emily Blunt in Michael Kors Getty

Emily Blunt was simply statuesque.  She wore a gold Michael Kors dress with cutouts and and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.  Her form and face – just beautiful.

Classic, yet trendy describes Rachel Weisz’s Louis Vuitton dress with sheer panels covered in polka dots.  I think she looked so pretty and her hair and makeup gave her a little extra vavoom!

Kate Hudson wore a black Alexander McQueen keyhole gown with gold trim around the neck and on the belt.  It’s sexy, but understated and unique.  Black and gold is such a popular combination right now and it’s oh so chic.

Jennifer Garner in Vivienne Westwood Couture Getty

Ben Affleck’s leading lady also shone in red.  Jennifer Garner wore a sequined Vivienne Westwood Couture gown in a rich red.  I like how the sequins were sewn in a pattern to give the dress some texture.  Her tousled curls were swept back in a blasé way to reveal yellow gold and diamond earrings by David Webb.

Before Garner presented, she was sweet enough to thank a couple people her husband forgot. Ben’s a lucky man – two golden trophies to match his (not just a) trophy wife.

Isla Fisher GettyIsla Fisher was stunning in a pale Reem Acra gown with a sheer neckline and shiny embellishments.  I loved the color of her hair with the hue of the dress and her berry lip.

Jessica Chastain GettyApparently I have a thing for red heads.  While I’m not crazy about the extra fabric on the top, I still think Jessica Chastain looks amazing in this Calvin Klein Collection dress.  Maybe it’s the electric color with her ginger hair.

Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom arrive at 70th Annual Golden Globe AwardsMirand Kerr lived up to her title as a Victoria Secret model in this bombshell of a dress.  Her red Zuhair Murad gown featured a deep V neck and high slit.  Her statement earrings, lingerie runway-ready hair, red lips and arm candy, husband Orlando Bloom, complete her sexy ensemble.

Jennifer Lawrence in Zuhair Murad Getty

Jennifer Lopez looked absolutely ravishing in a nude Zuhair Murad gown that made her appear as if she was wearing nothing but delicate white lace.  The gown blended perfectly with her skin.  Her curls were swept to the side in an Old Hollywood sort of way, which proved to be a popular style that evening.

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

I think Lea Michele’s dress suited her perfectly.  The shimmery white Elie Saab featuring her signature thigh high slit was young and fun and fit for a stage.  But I’d love to see her try something a bit more edgy.

Anne Hathaway GettyAnne Hathaway wore a simply elegant Chanel gown.  She glowed in the white, sparkly creation, but it left me wanting more.

UPDATE:

Found some new dresses that I adore…

Since JT couldn’t, Vanessa Hudgens brought sexy back in a shiny Jenny Packham dress at the Warner Bros. and InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party.  She looks party-ready with sultry eye makeup, large yellow gold earrings, a plunging neckline and large sequins.  Note: More yellow gold and black!  It’s a little rock and roll and a lot of glam – love it!

aAlso at the party, Julianne Hough wore another Jenny Packham creation.  (Jenny Packham is a popular lady!)  The blush pink gown was given some edge with structured shoulders, a deep V neckline and shiny side panels.  I like the silhouette the lines create, her matching pink lip and her hair in a retro wave.

IAshley Tisdale nailed it in this Issa dress at the same party.  The nude dress is so simple and sleek and the slim fit and cutouts keep it sassy.  She paired it with a cuff by Sylva & Cie, earrings by State Room and a clubch by L. K. Bennett.

And a little rock & roll at 2012 Golden Globes

Old Hollywood glamour met a little rock & roll on Sunday, January 15 at the 2012 Golden Globes. The display of elegant red carpet gowns in pale shades of nude, grey and white was punctuated by bursts of red, dramatic cutouts and shimmering fabric and details.  Below are a few of my favorites, in no particular order.

Salma Hayek shined in Gucci.  Her look was inspired by the 1920’s art deco patterns and architectural shapes.  Hayek’s long, loose curls softened the edges of the strapless bustier and column skirt.  I think art deco style is the cat’s meow and I look forward to seeing more of the twenties coming back from geometric designs and drop-waists to pleats, fringe, beading and headwear.

Emma Stone rocked a plum Lanvin gown with raspberry side panels.  The flowing dress with a plunging V neckline and embellished shoulders was cinched at the waist by a leather belt with a crystal eagle.  I couldn’t put it any better than the people at the Red Carpet Fashion Awards – “Very Harley-Davidson meets Aphrodite” – and I adored the juxtaposition.

Sofia Vergara of Modern Family flaunted her hourglass figure in a peacock blue Vera Wang custom-made gown.  The swirling mermaid skirt further accentuated her curves and her long hair worn straight to one side kept it sultry by balancing the elaborate dress.

Nicole Kidman glowed in a studded grey Versace dress that hugged her statuesque form.  I really liked how the gold studs matched the color of her long, loose curls and added some rock & roll to her typical elegant style.  I found her selection interesting because the gold studs have appeared on Versace’s women and men’s Spring runways and in the recent collaboration with H&M, so I’m expecting to see studs everywhere.  Bring on the rock & roll!

Angelina Jolie was absolutely stunning in a white Atelier Versace gown.  The structured bodice, which fit her perfectly, was topped with an asymmetrical collar folded down to reveal a shocking red.  The satin skirt gathered at one hip above a thigh high slit.  Her Christian Louboutin satin clutch and full lips were the same bold red as the collar.  Her hair was pulled back in a simple bun to showcase her beautiful face.  Absolutely stunning.

I have to admit that I have a girl crush on Evan Rachel Wood.  I think she is beautiful and genuine and I’ve heard that she knows how to have fun.  My kind of girl.  I also have a thing for peacocks.  So while it might not be everybody’s cup of tea, I was fascinated by her Gucci Première gown.  From the top, the dress began with a sheer halter neckline with a deep V cut and a scattering of paillettes that become denser and overlap like fish scales. The glittering pieces grow larger through her hips and thighs and then turn to ostrich plumes covering the full skirt.  The shimmering green and teal masterpiece is mesmerizing, however Wood manages to wear the dress and not let the dress wear her by letting her confidence and grace shine through.

Supermodel Elle Macpherson was stunning in a Zac Posen gown with a mermaid train.  Her bold diamond encrusted bangles and long, loose curls added even more drama.  I’m still trying to figure out how she looks younger than ever…

Charlize Theron romanced in a blush Dior Haute Couture gown.  The deep V-neckline, wavy hair and embellished headband was reminiscent of a 1920s flapper.  The plunging neckline and high slit gave the glamorous look vavoom without giving away too much. I adore this romantic dress on Theron, who is a spokesperson for Dior.

Helen Mirren was gorgeous in a navy Badgley Mischka dress.  She accessorized the wrap top and ruffled petal skirt with a jeweled belt and clutch.  Again, I’m wondering how she manages to look so young!

Amber Riley, the diva of Glee, flaunted her figure in a sexy red number from Badgley Mischka.  She looks terrific in this simple shape with a sweetheart neckline and frills.  And while I think her hair looks great, I wonder what she would look like with it pulled up.

Sara Hyland of Modern Family looked darling in a vintage Dolce & Gabbana nude lace dress with a black lace sash and side swept hair.

Kim Kardashian, who did not attend the Golden Globes, although she has been working on her acting skills on her “reality” show, went old Hollywood glam at the after party in a Bruce Oldfield gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.  As a fan of 50s inspired glamour I was pleased that she complemented the black lace number with wavy hair and red lips.
