Red Carpet Review – 2016 Oscar Awards

The 2016 Oscar Awards, as a television event, underwhelmed. Between the uncomfortable tension of the (legitimate) question of racial disparity and the clumsiness of an overworked production (unnecessary props and nauseating camera pans), the three hours (and counting) would likely have been better spent in some other way. As usual, I'll take the red carpet arrivals over the ...

Red Carpet Review – 2015 Emmy Awards

It's no secret that I love a Red Carpet. In fact, if there isn't a strong host for the evening, I'll often skip the actual awards portion and stick to the red carpet arrivals.

Red Carpet Review – 2012 Emmy Awards

Most notable was the playful vibe that seemed to permeate through attendee attire. There was an abundance of citrus shades (yellow was a big trend), but even the blues were bright ...

2012 Met Costume Institute Gala

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute exhibition is often reduced to little more than a footnote in articles dedicated to the fashion hits and misses worn at the  gala honoring the exhibit. Warning: this post will be no different. I'm presenting my picks for best and worst looks at the 2012 Met Costume Institute Gala. Note - I'm taking into ...
