Fake n' Bake

At the launch of her new swimwear line for Next, Geri Halliwell showed up looking like a shiny orange.

Girl needs to step away from the tanning booth.  Clearly, she needs an intervention.

She has so much potential but she needs a stylist who doesn't hate her.

But what a Bod, huh?!

It's actually a good thing she's not singing anymore.  We really couldn't live through another 'It's Raining Men'.  Ouch!

She's Always Like This

No. Helena Bonham Carter is not responsible for red carpet high jinks.  She's always like this....

Here she is, running errands today in London.  Running errands.  Like this.  God bless her!

2011 Golden Globes: Post Mortem

Can I just start with Ricky Gervais before I get into the red carpet results?

Not really sure what all the fuss is about as he was doing his job. That’s what comedians are supposed to do; make fun of everyone in the room so their comfort levels are thrown out the window.

Hollywood needs to get over itself.

With the help of Twitter, let’s recap last night’s red carpet.


Claire Danes in pink Calvin Klein absolutely glowed last night. However, most Tweeters wanted to know who that strange woman in the cowgirl outfit was, mauling poor Claire as she got out of her seat.

Um, it’s the real Temple Grandin. Let’s just say that Twitter can sometimes be pop-culture-challenged.

Speaking of being pop-culture-challenged, I didn’t know who this person was but admired her dress. As it turns out, she was a nominee!

Ouch. I’ll get it right next year, promise.

Designer: Oscar de la Renta
A simple black dress, a chic chignon and a red lip: always a winning formula.

Kyra Sedgewick in Emilio Pucci looked stunning last night. Her dress flowed beautifully and gave her look a relaxed, fresh feeling. She was also one of the best accessorized women on the red carpet---check out her jewelry.
Love it all. Also, when will Hollywood starlets figure out that a simple chignon never, ever goes out of style? A+

Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive brought sexy back last night. HOT, HOT, HOT. However, she could have done something different with her hair---was a tad boring.

Maybe deep down I’m just a slut but I loved this dress on January Jones.
Hey, you’re only young and gorgeous once so flaunt it before gravity takes over.

The Best Green: And then there was Brangelina. They must loving showing up to red carpets, stealing everyone’s thunder. Angie wore the most beautiful green Versace dress, accented with sequins and a bold shoulder. Perfection.  Has a late 70’s Halston feel to it....


And then there was the Worst green: Catherine Zeta Jones in Monique l'Huillier

This one was easy: Natalie Portman in Viktor & Rolf

Tilda Swinton in Jil Sander. This so-called fashion icon failed last night. Don’t care that it’s Jil Sander, it’s not flattering at all. However, looks like many people liked this ‘look’.

To each their fashion own. I guess.

No surprises here: a Marchesa made it on the ‘Worst’ list

On the Fence

Leighton Meester in Burberry was elegant but just a little bit of a snooze fest. If you’re young, hot and gorgeous, you should dress like it.

Elizabeth Moss in Donna Karan: loving the colour, loving the hair but the bodice isn’t 100%. Looks a bit strange at the boobs. However, overall, she was ravishing last night.
Wonder what she uses on her skin…hmmm.

Most OTT

Another Marchesa disaster.
I’m sure this designer makes gorgeous dresses because I’ve seen them. Why are the celebs picking these monstrosities?

Honorable mention

Hideousness that somehow works a la Helena Bonham Carter. She’s nuts and gives me the impression that she really doesn’t give a shit.
Designer: Vivienne Westwood (but of course it is!)

Biggest disappointment of the night:
No Gwyneth Paltrow

The High Rise

It’s baaack….

The high-waisted jean trend is the kind of trend we would like to see very little of.

Especially if people start walking around in shorts like these this summer:

 And check out the name:
Is Shop Bop trying to be ironic? 
These shorts should be named ‘The How to Lose Friends and Alienate People Shorts’ or better yet, ‘Floral Camel Toe Shorts’. That’s literal enough if the picture isn't doing a good job of explaining it.

The high-waist thing typically looks fun and rather cute from the front, especially if you opt for a sailor-type pant or short.

from Net-A-Porter

However, the view from behind is an entirely different story.....


I think designer's may have forgotten why the low-rise jean became so popular: it basically cuts your arse in half!
But if you're the type of gal who wants to always try the latest trends no matter how suicidal, than go for it.  Just don't expect many compliments.  Or dates.

These ones from Current/Elliot are ok.  Not great but not totally hideous:

from Net-A-Porter

Maybe we’re being too discriminatory against the High Risers. Maybe we’ve got it all wrong.
So, if you find some flattering styles and would like to prove us wrong, we’re not against eating crow.
