I love Scandal, I love Olivia Pope, and I love Kerry Washington. I also think she is one of the most beautiful people on the whole planet. And now I realize –
She is a Real Life Disney Princess.
If you don’t watch Mad Men I urge you to give it a try just for Sally Draper. Sally is a firecracker and so is the young actress who plays her.
And her style is amazing. Read the rest of this entry »
I glimpsed Marion in the crowd and I knew I’d found my Superheroine.
a) She is so adorable. b) This is easily the most heroine chic look of the night. Now part of that was a lack of heroine chic (lots of blush and lace and pretty, little pow), but also:
Naomi Watts has been out of the spotlight the past year or so, but she decided to come back with a BANG. She has at least 5 films coming out this year, she just scored her second Oscar Nomination, and she showed up to the People’s Choice Awards in sparkling gold heroine chic:
And then, to secure her title as Superheroine of the Night, she presented the award to Tony Stark himself.
Anne Hathaway is having a good year. She got married. She was the most successful part of The Dark Knight Rises. And now she’s in one of the most anticipated films of the year, and garnering Oscar buzz to boot.
Speaking of boots…
I love how dramatic this is. I love how architectural it is. I love how heroine chic it is. And I love how Betty Draper or Emma Frost it isn’t.
Yesterday as I followed the ‘Emmys’ tags on twitter and tumblr I realized some people are actually invested in the competition. I can’t do that, I’d just get depressed. The show and the awards awarded were so predictable this year…as they are every year… I mean, they were trying to call Homeland winning over Mad Men an upset but was anyone actually surprised? Especially by the time the announcement was made. I also don’t watch for the “comedy” but I’m not sure anyone does. The most entertaining thing Jimmy Kimmel did was throw his parents out of the theater, and only because I found myself wondering what it’s like to be Jimmy Kimmel’s parents. Human relations I find eminently entertaining, actors trying to sell their comedic bits while simultaneously trying to convince us their above selling their comedic bits, not so much. I imagine you now expect me to say I watch for the fashion. And I do, of course, this IS a fashion blog, if a bit of a slanted one. But fashion isn’t just what they’re wearing. Fashion is the whole package. And Lucy Liu absolutely stood out there:
She looked AMAZING. She wore armor, and she sold it. SUPER. HEROINE. WARRIOR. CHIC.
Emmys have been given! But don’t worry, you didn’t miss the big show (that’s next Sunday). No, Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards were presented Saturday and a proper red carpet accompanied the event. Game of Thrones won big with six statues for all that behind the scenes magic that makes the on screen magic pop. I’m still mad that Lena Heady wasn’t recognized with an acting nom, but at least the costumes won. The Creative Arts Emmy win I’m happiest for is Outstanding Children’s Program Wizards Of Waverly Place (Disney Channel). It was outstanding and I miss it. Also standing out:
Miranda Cosgrove is this adorably funky dress. I love the dress and love the shoes with it. The make-up looks heavy-handed but it might just be the glare of the sun. All in all, cute and reads as a twist on Zatanna.
I put together a set based on this earlier RTW Spidey design:
Don’t be surprised when Gwen Stacy pops up next:
