Red Carpet!!!!! Love the Golden Globes!

Whew! I'm exhausted... gotta say I LOVE watching the red carpet broadcast with my facebook friends... I've never typed so fast in my life!  Whew! ... wiping my brow.

So,  there was lots and lots of Emerald!  What does that mean?

--The emerald is the sacred stone of the goddess Venus. It was thought to preserve love. The emerald has long been the symbol of hope. It is considered by many to be the stone of prophecy.--
~ Emily Gems
*Shrug* You figure it out!  I love love love it as a stone, but it's a little somber in the bright sunshine of Hollywood, No?
And lots of blonds (it is Hollywood after all) in one shade of pale pale peach, pale pale biege, ... the palest of neutrals, and they all looked washed out.  What are they thinking?  Is it something that I just don't get.  Explain it to me, I'm willing to learn.  (My opinion hasn't changed from my post in 2009 about the Golden Globes....  Maybe I don't like pale?)

But there was one blond who is tied for The Style Shepherd's Best Dressed! January Jones! She's a star!

 And I have to give it up to the woman who clearly comes to this costume party dressed as herself!  Helena Bonham Carter in Vivienne Westwood!

.... and in a tie for Best Dressed is Eva Longoria!  If you can be chic and a bombshell, this is the way to do it.

Love a Red Carpet!  Don't you?! 

I want to share some of the funnier quotes from my own personal facebook fashion experts.... Disclaimer:  All of these comments come from a place of love, we really love all the Red Carpet-ees, we just have a funny way of showing it.

Tijuana - She looks like Sharon Stones character from Casino. lol
Nicole - Draped column looks like the black swan is going to tango
Nikka - Holy 80s flash back, Batman!

....... 'Til next time!

  1. Nice. Eva looks amazing, I am normally not a fan of hers, but she looks great here. I was totally out of my element on your Facebook page (I'm a sports guy, sue me), I just know what I like and don't like. Next time, I will do my homework first and be able to explain WHY I didn't like January Jones' dress!
