I am not savvy at Twitter yet, and have way too much to say about everything, to be able to restrict myself to 140 characters! Although, I did have every intention to Tweet my comments last night, but the fashions were so amazing, coming down the red carpet one after the other, that I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen long enough to write anything, so I just watched and enjoyed myself!
After seeing The Artist (which by the way I loved) I got this longing for 1930’s glamour - for beauty and fashion the way it used to be. I don't think I was the only one feeling this way because last night was a fantastic show of beauty, glamour, glitter, feathers and ruffles. There were a lot of daring looks, lots of low décolletage and dramatic open backs!
I loved that there was a big change from the usual elegant black (dark blue was a favourite dark colour) with peach, yellow and green as the hues of choice.
Here’s my little list of the most gorgeous dresses and overall, best red carpet style. In first place Angelina Jolie’s statuesque Atelier Versace white dress and Evan Rachel Wood’s low décolleté black and green, peacock feathered Gucci. Also I loved Jane Fonda, both her dress and appearance (boy, I hope I can look like that at her age) and of course the elegance and class of Dame Judi Dench.
At the bottom of my list, I am sorry to say, is Meryl Streep. I adore her in every movie I have ever seen her in, but her fashion choices - not so much. And Madonna - wow - those girls were probably screaming - "let us out, we are in pain". I have mentioned before that she could benefit from a professional a bra-fitting!
In general I did not see too many faux pas, (except someone needs to tell Claire Danes of Homeland, that red carpet glamour doesn't not include showing your nipples). You can wear the most gorgeous gown, but without the right undergarments, you set yourself up for fashion disaster.
The styles last night were so perfect and so colourful, that I can’t wait to show you all of the pretty new colours coming into our stores for spring. Seamless, nude bras have their place, but this year let's live it a little and add some colour to our lingerie wardrobes!
