The Oscars

The Golden Man Awards are over for yet another year and weren’t they simply fabulous!!  I loved the variety of looks this year with some of the younger actresses such as Jessica Chastain and Michelle Williams rocking some unusual and contemporary shapes and fabrics.  However, I was disappointed to see that it wasn’t Angelina Jolie’s thigh high split in her black velvet Versace dress or Posh’s rather sour face whilst wearing the most beautifully tailored dress from her latest collection that made the headlines. Instead, it was Sacha Baron Cohen that grabbed the front pages with his ridiculous ash tossing stunt and antics on the red carpet for which he was removed by security. I used to think high profile events such as the Oscars were untouchable and such blatant behaviour to grab the spotlight to promote a film in advance of its release would simply be ignored or not tolerated. However, Sacha’s stunt proved even the most prestigious red carpet, Hollywood bash is suspectible. Sad to say that this year’s Oscars and the main reason why people watch this event … for the glamour and fashion …. was overshadowed.

The Perfect Dress

What exactly is the perfect dress? Is it from the front cover of Glamour magazine as modelled by Sarah Jessica Parker? As seen by Rihanna at the Grammys? Perhaps the girl beside you on the bus travelling down the Lisburn Road to Belfast has got it right. I think the perfect dress is all down to one person …. You! Everyone’s idea of the perfect dress is different. It can be black and slinky, floral and fresh, halter neck, fishtail, low cut, backless, the list goes on and on. Main thing is as long as you feel fabulous, then you’ve found your perfect dress. So, what’s your idea of the perfect dress then?
