happy holidays! & happy 1st birthday to hlask!

With the craziness of the holidays, I haven’t been around much again – oops! Bad blogger! Hope everyone had a lovely time with friends and family. I sure did.

Here I am on the porch with our second Christmas tree (there were 3 in the house), wearing a beautiful ecru (basically white) sweater from White House Black Market (which doesn’t seem to photograph as lovely as it really is), Target jeggings, and Bandolino leather boots.

best & worst of the Emmys 2010

What a fun show the Emmys were this year! Say what you will about Jimmy Fallon, but I thought he did a pretty decent job hosting, if only for that fantastic Glee-ful opening number. I was super disappointed not to see LOST walk away with any big awards for its final season – awards shows have a history of rewarding an entire body of work at the end, so I thought there was a possibility of this happening – but I was happy to see so many first-time winners.

As for the fashions, well, they were trend-tastic! And not too many serious mishaps. Well… ok, a few.

But let’s start with trends. I think the biggest one on the 2010 red carpet was…

oscars 2010: the best & the rest

Well, the big show is over. No huge surprises this year – except Neil Patrick Harris opening the show. That was a nice surprise. Though my favorite part was probably Ben Stiller presenting Best Makeup in full Avatar garb. I laughed so hard. I love him so much.

But! This is not the place to discuss my deep love of the man who brought us Derek Zoolander and Hansel (so hot right now); it’s a place to talk clothes. So let’s take a look at the trends on this year’s red carpet.

Letting their hair down:

From this year’s winner, Sandra Bullock, to last year’s winner, Kate Winslet, to… one of Charlie’s Angels (sorry, Cam, we’ll get back to you later), I noticed a lot of hair down & side-swept with minimal fuss. Often I think it’s a little bit of a cop-out, but these three ladies look great, I must say. When your hair is that shiny and/or voluminous, why mess with perfection?

best dresses of the decade

all in a day’s work, originally uploaded by hereslookingatshoeskid.

It’s tough being Hollywood glam, isn’t it?

Since it’s New Year’s Eve, I was just looking through EW’s 20 Knockout Dresses of the ’00s, which is pretty on point, I think (JLo’s infamous deep-V, Kiera’s green Atonement dress, Halle Berry’s Oscar dress – not my fave, but memorable), and thought I’d share a few of my personal favorites from the list.
