The Costume Institute Awards held at the NYC Metropolitan Museum of Art is the Oscars of the fashion world.
These ladies are my pick for Best Dressed!
BLAKE!!!!!!! I am so obsessed with her!
Worst Dressed goes to Katie Holmes who I can’t even post a picture of because you just can’t unsee that level of hideousness.
My goodness, Sandra Bullock has come into her fashion element this past awards season! Not only did she give a great performance in Gravity, she was out of this world with her red carpet fashion!
Amazing actor & stunning brunette! 49 has never looked so good!
Take a look:
The Golden Globes are fun and a little irreverent,
especially with Tina Fey & Amy Poehler hosting!
My fave TV characters won – yay for Claire Danes & Damian Lewis for Homeland. And of course Hugh Jackman & Anne Hathaway for Les Mis!
But it’s the fashion that I really hang out for!
Here are my picks for best dressed…
What were your favourite red carpet looks for the Golden Globes 2013?
Margherita Missoni (the Missoni dynasty heiress) married her long time love Eugenio Amos recently in the garden’s of her Italian home.
True to her boho gypsy style, their wedding was a casual garden brunch event glammed up by her Missoni family (grandparents Rosita and Tai, and her mother Angela) and some celeb friends including photographer Mario Testino, ex-French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld and Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani.
Margherita collaborated with Giambattista Valli for her etherial ivory wedding dress. The entertainment fit with the mystical gypsy theme including fortune tellers, gypsy musicians and acrobats.
Her bridesmaids were Tatiana Santo Domingo, Eugenie Niarchos and sister Teresa.

If you haven’t read the scathingly sarcastic yet hilarious diatribe from “Suri’s Burn Book: Well-Dressed Commentary from Hollywood’s Little Sweetheart” (written by ghost writer Allie Hagan) then you haven’t yet lived. All content from Suri’s Burn Book blog or twitter.
A select few posts…
Tonight I am going to see the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The Millennium Series is up there with my favourite reads and I loved the Swedish film adaptations, so in honour of this long awaited event (Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist!!!) here are my favourite fashion moments thus far from Hollywood’s version of Lisbeth Salander.
Rooney Mara memorable fashion moments
*note, Im generally not a fan of the ‘mullet’ dress/skirt, but she makes it look fierce!!!
Following Noomi Rapace‘s recreation of Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009) is a tough gig and with past acting credits on Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) and The Social Network (2010) let’s hope this 26 year old can recreate a memorable adaptation of Salander that does the character justice.
…til True Blood Season 4

Via the fabulous guys at Tom&Lorenzo I saw this recent shoot with American Vogue featuring the stunning Amber Valletta.
The March 2011 shoot looks so Mad Men 60’s Californian glam! Her son Auden McCaw also features. She hasn’t lost it, even for a second!

I have such admiration for Oprah; what she’s achieved, her compassion, her generosity and her joie de vivre.
I don’t remember how or when I started watching Oprah. For as long as I remember there’s always just been Oprah….in light her final three episodes ever last week (and me shedding a tear or twenty) it got me thinking of all the things I’ve learnt from watching the Oprah show.
I loved what one of Oprah’s guests said during the two-part second to last show. When speaking about what lasting legacy Oprah’s show will leave behind, Madonna said
“the legacy from the Oprah Winfrey show; everything you made us feel, dream, wish, wonder, believe, hope. All of it, felt by women and men in 150 countries around the world.”
To me, that’s what’s most important about what Oprah has given the world through her last 25 seasons of the Oprah Winfrey Show; that you have the power to make a great life possible. You just have to believe that you can. And do it.
