So I caught E!’s Red Carpet Coverage of the Golden Globes last night and thought it would be cool to do a minute by minute style diary of celebrity fashion. Just my two cents. Enjoy!
6:05– Aaaaaah! Jay Manuel! I absolutely love Jay, but I prefer his blonde ‘do to the silver. His tie/cravat/bow is very cute, however. He’s talking about bringing the ‘old to the new’ and vintage digs. I wonder: what makes a designer gown vintage? Is vintage the equivalent of last season??? Or two seasons ago??
6:18–I realize that I need to go to the supermarket to get some food, but…priorities, priorities! Fashion before food.
6:19–My brother calls me, asking me to go online and find the location of a Best Buy in Santa Monica, California. So. He’s calling me in Brooklyn from California to find something in his area. When I can’t find it, he hangs up on me. Ridic. Instead of being offended by his rudeness, I get back to it.
6:21–My boyfriend has his hands on the remote. Turns it to ESPN. I’m going to choke him if he makes me miss anything. After a pinch, he jumps back to the Red Carpet.
6:24–BACK! Ryan Seacrest with Vanessa Williams.
…Vanessa is getting a lil ‘old diva’ on me…this look is just not fresh. She reveals that she’s wearing a Carmen Marc Velvo dress, Fred Leighton jewels, and a Edwards-Lowell fur. She styled herself in about an hour and…it shows. My boyfriend says, “F*ck she looks good.” What does he know? He explains, “It’s the big hair.” Riiiiight.
6:30–Sienna Miller with Ryan Seacrest. Sienna reveals that she’s wearing a Marchesa dress and Cartier jewelry…
My bf said, “Is that Jude Law’s girl?” “Yes” “She’s not that hot.” I think she’s cute! And her accent is delightful! Oh! She just said, “La-di-da!”
6:40–ESPN again. I’m going to kill this man. Yes, it’s a commercial break. No, I don’t want to watch Hockey Highlights. No! No! No!
6:50–The bf is asleep! Yay! No more channel skipping or ESPN.
6:52–Ugly Betty with Ryan Seacrest!
So she’s wearing a Brian Reyes gown and Fred Leighton jewelry. The color looks great on her…It really pops and speaks to the ‘bright color’ trend that’s starting to take hold.
6:58–Ryan Seacrest is poking around for details… Eva’s dress is Ungaro. “The premiere of Eva and Navy.” Ok, she just did a little twirl…
…Ok, the back of her dress wins out over America’s. Sorry Ugly Betty!
She’s also wearing a Marchesa dress. One shoulder joint. She looks very Greek Goddess in her Lorraine Schwartz jewels. J.Lo usually causes my jaw to drop to the floor, but this dress is kind’ve yawn worthy. Why is Marc hiding in the corner?? Anyway, I think the one shoulder dress is a theme this time around. And the back details?!?
… Pimpin. Eva and J.Lo have the backs going on.
7:18–I spy Cameron Diaz wearing a one shoulder gown. The one shoulder of her gown is…
…a ruffle! I swear, you heard it first on the Fashion Bomb. And an aside: I’m starting the beret revolution! More on that later.
7:20–Ryan Seacrest is hitting on *everybody*. Guess he’s really trying to squash that ‘gay’ rumor.
7:36–Brangelina with Ryan Seacrest…
Brad is sooo hot. Still. Angelina refuses to talk. I like her strapless gown. No word on who it’s by. Ryan was so busy trying to get the scoop on the family that he forgot to ask.
7:40–Oh Sh*t, Beyonce!
She looks AMAZING in her sequined gown. Her decolletage, makeup, jewelry, everything is on point. My boyfriend says, “Best looking chick I’ve seen all night, bar none.” He must not be including me! I’m wearing a fluffy baby blue robe by Vicky’s! Update: After a few punches to the chest, he retracted his statement. Beyonce’s the second best chick he’s seen all night, next to his girl.
7:52–Jay Manuel just noted that Angelina was not feeling being there. I mean. If you think about it, celebrities, jewels, and dresses is not what should be on our agenda. But we all need a break from saving the world sometime, don’t we??
7:56–Boo. Credits. Guess the red carpet coverage is over. Sucks because I wanted Ryan or Giuliana to talk to Beyonce. Let’s just assume her dress is House of Dereon…
8pm–The show is starting. Maybe the supermarket is still open???
Update: It was!
