The 84th Annual Academy Awards

In the weeks leading up to the Oscars, people have been predicting who will show up, who will win and what people will wear. It’s the last major award show of the season, which means the stars (usually) bring out the big guns in terms of fashion. Here’s our rundown of the styles and the winners.

The Fashion

Nicole’s favorites

Jessica Chastain – This one is no surprise, as everyone on the red carpet was talking about how great she looked. I was surprised that I actually liked her dress because the gold and black combination isn’t usually a favorite of mine. Everything about her look was perfect though – her dress, her hair, her jewelry. And how cute was it that she brought her grandma with her?

Michelle Williams – I must say I was pleasantly surprised with her pick. She’s usually someone whose dress I either don’t like or don’t have an opinion on. This dress was perfect.

It’s on my list, and I’m sure when I start watching I’ll realize it was a very well deserved win. But for now I’m disappointed that shows like Dexter, Breaking Bad and The Good Wife didn’t win instead.

On the flip side, I was happy Modern Family won best comedy. I would’ve liked to see Sofia Vergara win best actress, but for some reason she just isn’t getting the love for her role. Maybe next year…

Golden Globe Awards: The Fashions

There’s nothing like writing a post about all the fabulous (and not so fabulous) fashions at an award show a good two weeks after the fact! I know we’ve been slacking pretty bad with out updates (and we had been doing so well for so long!), but we’re going to do better. I promise! And so I’ll start with some backtracking ahead of tonight’s SAG Awards, where hopefully the dresses will be even better than the Golden Globes!

Let’s start with the positives. These were my five favorite dresses of the evening, in no particular order.
