Oscars Red Carpet 2019

While I LOVE movies, this mama doesn’t get out much with three littles to actually see many of them these days…So while I watched and loved the Awards as always…it’s time for my annual Red Carpet fashion round up!

Pinks and ruffles definitely rocked the Red Carpet this year, and I have to say…seeing all this color is really getting me excited for Spring. Here were some of my favs from last night.

Kacey Musgraves wearing Giambattista Valli. Okay, I was DYING over this dress ya’ll. If you remember my wedding dress back in 2011, you know how much I love tulle, and pink tulle!? Yes please! I’m especially loving the neckline, the cinched waist, and the multiple tiers. Almost like a regal ballerina.

 

Gemma Chan wearing Valentino couture. I just LOVED this dress, and the fact that this dress has a POCKET just took it up a notch for me as well. Also a fan of the high neckline. She is slaying this dress.

 

KiKi Layne weating Atelier Versace. This sleek light pink number really complements her skin tone and I love the back ruffle detail to give it some flare. Looking super chic.

 

Pretty sure Helen Mirren always looks classy in whatever she wears, but I loved this fun vibrant dress with layers of color. Made by Schiaparelli Haute Couture.

Angela Basset in Reem Acra. A little prom-like for me, but she pulls it off.

 

Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet wearing Karl Lagerfeld (Fendi). RIP. Also, someone I know pointed out that he is wearing a SCRUNCHI on this wrist! Haha!

 

Amy Adams never disappoints on the Red Carpet. Last night she rocked Atelier Versace.

 

Another beauty who always rocks the Red Carpet with style and grace. Emma Stone wearing Louis Vuitton. Loving those shoulders!

 

J. Lo. always glows. Last night with A. Rod, both wearing Tom Ford.

 

Lady Gaga in Alexander McQueen. Still DYING over her performance with Bradley Cooper and the chemistry they shared. I NEED to see this movie ASAP.

 

91st Academy Awards - Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 24 Feb 2019

Bradley Cooper wearing Tom Ford and rocking the runway with his mama, Gloria Campano, and his girl, Irina Shayk. But again…DID YOU SEE THE CHEMISTRY WITH HIM AND LADY GAGA?! Just sayin’.

 

Okay, I had to share Billy Porter, as I believe this was the BIGGEST statement piece on the Red Carpet last night. Half tuxedo, half ball gown, this stunning Christian Siriano design completely caught my attention. What a beautiful collaboration of masculinity and femininity, playing with the gender binary and such a bold choice. Bravo!

 

Jennifer Hudson looking vivacious in this stunning Elie Saab gown.

 

And lastly, I wanted to share this ray of sunshine, Constance Wu, in Atelier Versace. She made the Carpet bright, and has me totally wishing for warmer weather here on the East Coast!

Big congrats to all the winners and nominees. I pretty much still need to see all of the movies. Got some work to do! Haha. What movie should I start with?

Okay, you guys, I want to hear YOUR favorites on the Red Carpet from last night!

Let me know below!

Make it a great week everyone!

Oscar Favorites

Happy Monday!

Today I want to share some of my favorites from the Oscar Red Carpet.  Two major trends I saw this year were metallics and pale neutral colors.  Of course, there were a few pops of bright color in there as well.   There were so many to choose from this year (even the gentlemen rose to the occasion!), but these were on the top of my list.

Would love to know your Red Carpet favorites as well!

I had a great time watching the Academy Awards last night with the hubby.  I felt very knowledgable about a lot more of the films this year, because of our Race to the Oscars.  I also thought the competition was really fantastic this year.  So many amazing pieces of work were nominated, and so many categories held really wonderful options for winners.  There was a even a tie in the Sound Editing category this year.  I have never heard of an Oscar tie!  What an honor to share.  The performances were great, and there was even a guest appearance by our First Lady–what a surprise!  Congrats to Argo and Ben Affleck for winning Best Picture.  How exciting!

I had a great weekend fulfilling a bucket list item (more to share on that later!), date nights with the hubby, coaching basketball, and relaxing.  Looking forward to a busy week ahead as well.

Hope you all have a great week too!

{5} Lately…

Meg Gi

My friend Meg and me over the weekend at OxCart Tavern in my ‘hood.

Lately I’ve been…

reading  Onto Book 5 of the Harry Potter series.  Making my way…

writing  Some e-mails to folks in the advertising community.

listening  Another hit from one of my favorite collaborators, David Guetta and Sia. Check out “She Wolf (Falling to Pieces).”

thinking  That is it very frigid out there!!!  Brr…hat, gloves, and a scarf are a must in this weather.

smelling  Yankee Candle “Soft Blanket.”  My new favorite scent.

watching  My boss and I are currently partaking in a “Race to the Oscars.”  Our goal is to watch all of the films nominated for Best Picture before the big event.  So far, I have seen two out of nine.

wishing  That I hadn’t caught this cold over the weekend.  I spent my entire day off yesterday sick on the couch.  Hence my lack of a blog post yesterday.  Today, I am still sick and working from home.

hoping  That we can plan another girl’s weekend soon, because that one was SO MUCH FUN!  (minus the whole catching a cold from my cousin part)

wearing  Pajamas.

loving  Michelle Obama’s Inauguration outfit.  Way to go Thom Brown.

laughing  At this hilarious video “How to Dance When You’re High on Life.”  It totally reminds me of all my favorite guy friends when we go to Dewey Beach.  Thanks to my friend Trey for sharing this.

wanting  To be able to breathe out of my nose.  

needing  To get a lot of work done from home today, because we have a client coming into town tomorrow.

feeling  Extremely tired.  No matter how much sleep I get, I can’t seem to get enough.  Also, feeling very stuffy.

craving This Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C.

clicking  I was featured on another leg wear website called Fashion Legwear for my ivory polka dot tights.  I was included with a group of bloggers for best leg wear of the week.  Scroll down about halfway, and you will find my pic.

What have you been up to lately?

Love,

Gina
