Red Carpet Review: The Best Beauty, Hair, & Jewelry from the 2023 Golden Globe Awards, Including Jenna Ortega, Selena Gomez, Anya Taylor-Joy, & More!


I don’t know about you, but I haven’t stopped my standing ovation for Angela Bassett–not only for her history-making win for Best Supporting Actress in Any Motion Picture for her outstanding role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at last night’s 80th Golden Globe Awards, but for her entire head-to-toe look. As soon as I saw her silver glistening Pamella Roland halter gown, I said, “That’s a winner’s dress,” & was right! Her Old Hollywood-inspired bob & gorgeous jewels made for a momentous night for both film & fashion, along with that of her stunning colleagues in the industry.

From shimmering cosmetics to fluffy lashes, sculpted hairstyles to flowing locks, & statement earrings to layered necklaces, the stars celebrated the night in the most stylish & sparkly way they know how. Some of my other favorites for the night included Margot Robbie, Lily James, Quinta Brunson, Jessica Chastain, Selena Gomez, & Sheryl Lee Ralph!

Fabulous In 4 Ways: A Bold Statement Necklace For Under $12!


Although the holidays may be over, that doesn’t mean it’s time to put away your best & most sparkly accessories & that includes statement necklaces. I’m pretty new to the bauble club, but I’m having fun experimenting with different ways to wear the bold piece of jewelry, which is what inspired my latest post for Fabulous in 4 Ways. I’m excited to explore the variety of style choices one can make with a statement necklace, especially when headed out for a day off of lunch with the girls, to the office for a big meeting, a cocktail party on a date, or a weekend getaway trip.

Coco Rocha, Katy Perry, Emma Roberts, Olivia Palermo, Molly Sims, & Jamie King in statement necklaces.Statement necklaces have been a prominent go-to accessory for celebrities over the years, including supermodel Coco Rocha, pop star Katy Perry in Amrapali, actress Emma Roberts, style icon Olivia Palermo, Molly Sims in a floral necklace, & Hart of Dixie‘s Jamie King.

To start this project, I choose the statement necklace ($11.98) in black & gold from Target, which has just enough glitz & glam to dress up several combinations of basics with prints & rich textures.

Target - statement necklace $11.98.

For daytime, I love the ease of this look & how just one piece instantly adds some punch against the backdrop of casual separates. Also, the necklace is successful over a basic blouse & colorblock look for a fashionable office environment, playing up your personality, yet still remaining professional.

Fabulous in 4 Ways - Day & Work

SHOP day look: sweater ($24.80) @Forever 21, jeans ($19.99) @Zara, & ballet flats ($44.10) @Bon Ton. SHOP work look: top ($25.00) @Topshop, skirt ($34.11) @ASOS, & shoes ($32.99) @Charlotte Russe.

When headed to a cocktail party, a statement necklace is just the piece to elevate a classic LBD, sheath, or lace frock. Lastly, when taking a road trip for the weekend, a statement necklace is perfectly interchangeable when considering how to efficiently pack to get the most out of your wardrobe.

For more statement necklace inspiration, I choose a few more styles that are both affordable & adjustable to any neckline for any outfit.

Red Carpet Review: 2013 Critics’ Choice Awards Featuring Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lawrence, Rebel Wilson, & More!

Last night’s red carpet for the 18th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, movies like Argo, Silver Linings Playbook, Zero Dark Thirty, & Lincoln were celebrated along with their very well-dressed cast. The leading ladies of the film hit the red carpet, showing off their assets.  There was plenty of sheer paneling, giving off the sexy illusion of skin, as seen on Jennifer Lawrence (in Oscar de la Renta) Helen Hunt (in Philip Armstrong), Amanda Seyfried (in Marios Schwab).  Also, bold colors were a big trend with Leslie Mann (in Honor Spring ’13), Jessica Chastain (in Prada), & Sally Field.  Not to mention floral & sequin embellishments which were made all the more fabulous by Marion Cotillard (in Zuhair Murad), Elle Fanning (in Chanel), & Nina Dobrev (in Monique Lhuillier). Check out the complete gallery & share with us who you think was the best dressed of the night!

Red Carpet Review: The Lovely Ladies From Last Night’s Premiere Of ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part Two!’


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’m not a particular fan of The Twilight Saga, but I think last night’s red carpet for the franchise’s final installment, Breaking Dawn Part Two, is what’s most important to pay attention to when it comes to this film.  All of you Twi-hards are welcomed to seek another website to get your K-Stew / R-Patz gossip on.  The film’s stars were out in full force, & Kristen Stewart‘s headling-making nude Zuhair Murad gown has been all over the web today.  While there’s no doubt that the gown is very beautiful, my vote for best dressed belongs to Ashley Greene in a custom made blush gown by Donna Karan Atelier & Dakota Fanning who debuted her brunette locks with a gorgeous jewel-toned gown by Elie Saab.

Click through the gallery, featuring the film’s leading ladies, as well as some celebrity fans who showed up to share their support for the vampire drama, including Molly Sims & Julianne Hough.  Happy Styling!
