It's awards season again! Yay golden globes.

forgettable looks (do i say that every year?). this year it seemed to be sparkly, or folded fabric, or skin bearing. the sparkly dresses were mostly boring, the folded fabric dresses were the most beautiful and interesting of the night, and the skin bearing ones just made me feel kind of embarrassed for the wearer. am i getting old? its just unnecessary skin, it doesnt add anything pleasant.

(my favorites from the night...
felicity jones: love the dress color, neck/shoulders area and the folding.
reese witherspoon: its plain and simple but fits her well and her hair and accessories compliment nicely)

(drove me to distraction...
salma hayeks dress was lovely and looked really great on her, i was just too distracted by her hair and earrings to appreciate it. boo. kerry washingtons dress had an intricate and beautiful pattern too, nice and shimmery, but i was distracted by how uncomfortable she looks, the matronly cleavage and the tea length. jessica chastains dress color goes well with her hair and skin but the smashed together boobs?)

(has been...trying too hard... 
these ladies work very hard on their bodies. i see that. kudos. but could jennifer lopez and kate hudson be trying any harder to stay in the spotlight? its off-putting, like their looks for the night. and i hear j.lo had a wardrobe malfunction. come on.)

(post-baby mamas...
i enjoy this from amanda peet, good work and congrats. rosamund pike is a gorgeous lady but the cutouts just do not work at this time, it ruins the otherwise soft feminine look of your dress)

(dapper dudes...
bill murray, michael keaton, and paul rudd. seeing them just made me smile)

(favorite couple looks...
keira knightley [preggo] and hubby [looks like he hate hollywood]: i love her feminine whimsical comfy looking dress and the stunning make-up and hair. she stood out. channing tatum and jenna dewan: he looks like a statue but she looks smooth like butter. the folding on this dress was lovely and she also looked very comfortable.)

(british cuties...
colin firth and wife. benedict cumberbatch and fiancee. the ladies looked nice [and flowery] with their partners and benedicts girl had pockets. love.)

(lack luster...
i didnt lose my mind when george clooney shocked the world and married amal. i think she is very beautiful but the dress and gloves were lame. matthew and camila. she chose the folded dress look with yucky streaked and poufy hair to compliment his corpse scruff. they both seem to have aged 10 years since last award season.)

 (ladies of comedy...
love tina and amy [and their hosting skills] but these dresses to enter the award show were not doing it for me. tina had the sparkles and folding to match the evenings trends and amy had pockets(!) and a lovely color, but i didnt like these looks. and i just do. not. like. lena dunham. it dont care that shes not a stick insect, this dress doesnt even fit properly and could she slouch any harder? is she trying to encourage the internet trolls. maybe she likes the fodder.)

Didn't watch the show (yawn), but I like Julianne Moore's gown and I thought Prince looked smashing.

i agree with you about the color for jessica chastain, but the way the dress is drawn makes her look wide and she's not. i also kind of like amy poehler's dress. simple with an interesting detail or two and the color is eye-popping.
