Red Carpet

Red Carpet-

I am blogging outside of my usual focus today ….

tina fey and amy poehlerThe Golden Globes were presented the other night and personally I think that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler  ( image source) should be permanent hostesses of the Golden Globes! Just in case anyone from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is visiting Katherines Corner  today ( laughing). I crack myself up…  They made it so fun to watch. They took a few risks with their jokes. But everyone, including me, seemed to enjoy their silliness. Amy Poehler made out with Bono! What… so funny, I was rolling.:-)

It is difficult for me to be start struck (unless of course it is the fan-tab-ulous, Cher). I have enjoyed meeting celebrities and have even dated celebrities in my lifetime (a whole lifetime ago).  Don’t they have just the most amazing jobs!  In the interest of full disclosure- I was much, much younger and it was long before I met my amazing husband. He is the true love of my life and keeper of my heart.  I have shared my celebrity tid bits with you in a past blog post.

There are four celebrity award shows that I love to watch- The Golden Globes, The Academy Awards, The Grammy Awards and the Country Music Awards ♥  The pre-shows are one of my favorite things.  Seeing everyone dressed in their finery and accessorized with gorgeous jewels from Neil Lane, Fred Leighton, Harry Winston and others just makes me smile. I always enjoy seeing the dresses and watching the pre-show interviews. When celebrities relax a bit on the red carpet and share little insights it can be both informative and often eyebrow-raising. Trust me I am glued to the television. The day after the award shows the Fashion Police are on high alert and ready to let us know who chose wisely and who should invest in a stylist.

I rarely write about fashion or fashion trends. But, I couldn’t help but notice that the “man bun” was present at the golden globes. I am a huge fan of Jared Leto ( his acting and his band, 30 Seconds To Mars) and he has terrific hair ! I have always thought long hair on men ( certain men)  is attractive ( TMI?) Jared wore his hair pulled back and tidy and I thought he looked terrific.

Alex Ebert’s hair was much more random and appeared to be just loosely resting on top of his head. I’m not judging, just mentioning it was a bit of a mess (images source)source

Oh the dresses! There were so many beautiful gowns worn on the red carpet. I will never be able to include all of the ones I liked. But, I did pick three of the many that I really liked. At The Thursday Favorite Things blog hop this week I will share my very favorite.

  1. I loved Cate Blanchett’s dress and Emma Watson’s dress most of all, but lots of gorgeous gowns.

  2. I don’t usually watch the show, but I always take a look at the outfits celebrities wear afterwards online and my favorite from this one was Sophia Vergara, who looked gorgeous and so classy! :)

  3. I don’t always watch the whole show but this year I did. So good!

  4. Cate Blanchett’s dress still has me mesmerized! Loved it! I have it on my blog today with a post about style icons…how they can benefit us when searching for our own personal style. Happy Tuesday, Katie!

  5. Amy and Tina RULE! They should definitely host every year. How on earth could I pick a favorite dress though? So many amazing gowns!!!

  6. I don’t watch for the fashion (that shouldn’t surprise you!) but I do enjoy seeing the winners of the Golden Globes, more so than the Oscars.

  7. I don’t know who Sosa Bacon is, but that dress is FABULOUS and she looks great in it!! All three dresses,great choices. I think I live under a rock, I only know Taylor Swift (14-yr old daughter in the house). :)

    Great show! This is the first awards show that I can remember watching and then saying, “Is it over already?” I love awards shows, but this was a notch above the rest…….even with the incredibly awkward speeches from Jacqueline Bissett. I just stared at the TV during her speech thinking, “Wow! At least she looks great.” I am of the opinion that anywhere Bono is, must be a cool place to be.

  9. Dear Katherine, I did watch the Globes. I haven’t seen the movies mentioned but always enjoy watching what everyone is wearing. My daughter and I enjoyed watching it together and talking about it, that is the best part. Blessings, Catherine

  10. Right up my alley and I love to watch these shows and pre-shows and after fashion police. This last show, I missed it all and felt so out of it so I can’t offer an opinion. Loved this post and see you at the Academy Awards…on the couch that is.

  11. I love watching the awards as well. I fear the rest of the season’s hosts may pale in comparison, but time will tell.

  12. Hmm…am not really into the messy look :p

    Love the gowns

  13. The dresses are lovely, my favorites were Sophias and Taylors!

  14. Great show! I enjoy seeing all the fabulous gowns!
    Have a great week!
