SAG Awards Red Carpet 2012

Well this was another beautiful red carpet, didn't y'all think?

The best and worst dressed totally flipped from the Golden Globes.

(Almost) everyone of my best dressed from last time is now on my worst dressed!

How did that happen?

At least the Glee girls redeemed themselves... well, some of them.


Viola looked so beautiful. Her makeup was really pretty and this cream color was perfect for her.
I love the texture and interesting details.
Simple and pretty.

I LOVE this dress!! She looks gorge!

The neckline is really cool and I like the hem.
Another beautiful color and I like the details.

Finally- she looks young and fresh. (And a little scandalous- check out that first pic... She is THISCLOSE to a wardrobe malfunction!)

Very simple, but her hair, make up, and skin steal the show.

The train and back make this look.

This is on the verge of too much, but I like the dress.
Playful perfection.
Such a pretty green.
Disclaimer: I hate her hair. But I love the rest of it.


So sad since I loved her at the Golden Globes, but this is not a good look.

Yikes. Who told her this looked good?
If she had worn her hair down and lost the choker, it wouldn't be that bad, but that stupid necklace was skewed the whole time! If was off center and so wrong with that neckline.
I think she can do better.

I love her, but this dress is way too busy (pun intended), too casual, and ill fitting.


Not good, not bad, just kind of blah.
Interesting, but kind of...weird.

Don't really like the overlay.
There's something about this print that I kind of like, but is also sorta ugly.
I can't figure this one out.
I LOVE this from the waist up, but I just don't think it works as pants. If it were a gown things would be different, but the (too long) pants just seem odd.

A little too old looking for her.
I like the clutch, just not sure about the rest of it.

That's it for the red carpet, now time to watch the actual show!

Unexpected color combo

Say It Ain't So! (x3)

Seal and Heidi are splitting up!

I had hoped it was just rumors...but sadly now it is confirmed.

Man, if those to can't make it...

Isn't always the ones that seem to go out of their way to make you think they're in love that end up kaput shortly after?
Call me a hopeless romantic, but I seriously thought they were the real deal!


Also SUPER DEPRESSING was the devastating 9ers loss to the Giants today.
I blame myself.
I wasn't feeling well and I didn't properly show my support.
I couldn't even go to the watching party and I feel bad.
The game was SO CLOSE , tied, going into OT... Just sad. Not cool.

SO CLOSE! Oh, well, all good things must come to an end, I guess. They haven't gotten this far in years, but I really thought they were gonna make it.
I asked my brother, (the biggest fan I know) if he would rather they go the superbowl and lose or not go at all. He said not go at all, and I have to say I agree. They have a perfect record of winning each of the 5 times they went. I would hate to see that rep get tarnished. It would have been crushing for them to lose to the Patriots, so in a way I'm ok with it. There's always next year... *sigh*

In other (B list) celebrity news, Kristin Cavallari is now knocked up.
By her former fiancee who is now her fiancee again or something like that.
I can't believe she's preggo. I gotta say I'm a little scared for this baby.
I hope she's capable of not drinking for 9 months.
For this party girl, it might be an issue.

I hope everyone had a good weekend.
I did not do much except try to get over my cold since I have a busy week ahead and can't afford to not feel 100%.
I think it worked though- after a shower today I feel like I'm on the upswing.
We got snow too! It was kinda nice to just chill and be cozy inside.

Happy (almost) Monday!

Dressed to Kill: Rooney Mara

I may not be familiar with the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but I sure do like her style.

Since making the red carpet rounds, Rooney Mara has dressed to impress every single time (think cutouts, cutouts, and more cutouts!)

This is my favorite- I love this dress!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
I am (unfortunately) sick as a dog. :-(
My weekend has now morphed into a get well soon kind of situation. It's raining, so I guess it's ok if I'm stuck at home for the next 48 hours. Still bummed though, this cold is brutal! Goodbye, blogosphere, hello NyQuil.

Miss America 2012

The Miss America Pageant on Saturday got completely overshadowed by the Golden Globes, as it should have, but I didn't want to skip over the hot mess that was the "competition," especially the talent portion of the evening.
It was bad enough worth mentioning.

The whole thing was hilarious! But I don't think it was supposed to be.
Oh well, I enjoyed it in that cringe worthy way only bad TV can give you.

Starting with the intro... I usually like this part where every contestant introduces themselves and what state their from. These ladies each shared a fun fact about themselves or their state. I don't know who wrote these little quips for them if they came up with them on their own (doubt it) but I was surprised at some of the things these states are proud of.

Like Rhode Island's claim to fame being the place Family Guy is set in. Really? They couldn't come up with anything more impressive than a fictional (animated) show happens to take place there?
Random and Weird.

Hey, I guess it was better than Miss West Virginia talking about natural gas.
That joke just wrote itself.
Except for it's not a joke, she really did.

I usually love the evening gown portion, but there was not a lot of color or exciting dresses this year. A lot of that same cream/nude/white/blush we've been seeing so much of lately (see below)

I only some what liked two dresses:

Whoa, big over sized shoulder bow!

Now onto the "talents." This pageant is "edgy" meaning they make all the girls get ready and sit on the sidelines waiting for their name to be called, even though not all of them will perform.

And then once you're eliminated you have to talk to Brooke Burke immediately after, wish all your peers well, and try to choke down your tears. Very uncomfortable to watch, especially since they are all preparing to go on stage and then they have to just slink backstage.

As if that wasn't bad enough to watch, it got even worse for those who actually did perform their so-called talent. I did not think one of those performances was worthy of the crown.
The singing was awful and the dancing was worse.
Ever wondered what a ballet robot looks like?

Watch this.

Now you know.
I could have gone my whole life without this burned into my brain.
To lessen the blow of how boring and bizarre this was, they ran a ticker of "interesting" facts below each woman performing.
Not only was Miss Illinois doing the craziest pointe routine I've ever seen, now the whole world knows she is "afraid of windmills." I'm not making this up.

Side Note: The chick who played the piano was so hunched over I felt like I was watching The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Quasi Goes Classy!
(Plus a non ironic black swan performance. All I could think of was Jim Carrey on SNL.)

Now onto that magical moment. Miss America has finally been crowned. I'm sorry, but it's 2012...why is it they can never put that crown on right? It's so distracting to see that thing wobbling around when the winner is trying to do her victory walk.
Get it together, show organizers! There's got to be a better way!
(And she couldn't get the sash over her head because she wouldn't put her hand down. Finally Miss America 2011 had to physically pull it down!)
It was pretty funny. Watch here.

P.S. Miss Wisconsin, ever heard of waterproof mascara? DUH! That's like, pageant 101!
Having those huge black streaks running down your face is not a good look for anyone, let alone a beauty queen who should know these things.

Now I really want to watch Miss Congeniality. Must go see if I can't track down my VHS copy.
Gracie Lou Freebush would never let her mascara run.
