Red Carpet Picks 2018


Okay! Here we have it. My top picks for the Red Carpet 2018! Sorry for the delay. It’s been a crazy week around here. They aren’t in order, but I just had to start with this shimmering goddess, Jennifer Lawrence, in Dior. Seriously, does she look like a star or what? As you will see below, many sparkling metallics made the list this year!



The Black Panther star, Lupita Nyong’o, slaying it in this golden Versace gown.


90th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Gal Gadot pulling off Hollywood glam in this gorgeous flapper-style dress by Givenchy.



Allison Williams, of the movie “Get Out” (have you seen this one yet, you guys? If not, it’s a must!) wearing Armani Privè Couture and looking beautiful.



Best Actress nominee, Margot Robbie, wearing an incredible Chanel gown that took over 600 hours to make! That 3d crystal garland? Winning!



Nicole Kidman always looks amazing on the red carpet and this year’s royal blue Armani Privè gown and it’s giant bow did not disappoint!


90th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

My girl and Birthday Twin, Sandra Bullock, looking shimmery and chic in Louis Vuitton.



Pretty in pink, Saoirse Ronan of “Lady Bird” looking super sweet in Calvin Klein on the red carpet.


Armie Hammer

Let’s not forget the dudes! Armie Hammer looking fly in Giorgio Armani despite being in bed with the stomach flu the night before. I never would have guessed!



Common looking handsome on the red carpet in an Armani suit with Tiffany & Co. watch and pin.


Rita Moreno

While these next two might not be my personal favorite looks, you cannot deny these two made some head’s turn. Rita Moreno rocked the same black and gold dress that she wore on the red carpet in 1962 where she won an Oscar for “West Side Story.”



No pants? No problem. St. Vincent making a statement in Saint Laurent. Does she remind anyone else of Lady Gaga or is it just me?


Okay, that’s a wrap, you guys. Now I want to hear YOUR favorites! Post them below!

Hope you’re having a great week!



Oscar Favs 2016


Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive

Well, I may not have made it to the movie theatre once to see any of this year’s Oscar nominations…when you have a new baby, everything is on Netflix! I will have to add all of these films to my queue. However, I did have time to catch most of the Oscars including the Red Carpet. Cate Blanchett has my absolute favorite look of the night. I think she looks incredibly stunning! Below are the rest of my favorites from the night in no particular order.

Which Red Carpet look is your favorite? Or do you have a different favorite look that did not make this list? Please share! 🙂

We had a great family weekend with a nice brunch in the city followed by some adventures in Central Park. It was a beautiful day and such a nice little tease for spring! Busy busy week ahead prepping for our upcoming trips to Maryland this weekend for Luca’s Baptism and our cruise to the Caribbean the following weekend. Lots to do before we leave!

Today starts block 3 of P90X3 for me, and I’m super excited to be 2/3 of the way through the program. Although slightly sad that it’s coming to an end this month, because I am really enjoying it!

Make it a great week everyone! And Happy LEAP Year!



Oscars: Red Carpet Raves

So I know it’s already Tuesday, and maybe you have already moved on, but but it took me a day to pull together my favorite Oscars Red Carpet looks.  Here they are:

Rosamund Pike Givenchy

Rosamund Pike killing the Red Carpet in this Givenchy number.

Sienna_Miller Oscar de la Renta

Sienna Miller in a simple, yet glam black dress by Oscar de la Renta

Julianne Moore Chanel

Anna Kendrick Thakoon

Gwyneth Paltrow Ralph and Russo Couture

Dakota Johnson in Saint Laurent

Dakota Johnson sporting red and bling Saint Laurent – anyone else see the uncomfortably awkward mother/daughter moment on the Red Carpet with her and her mother, Melanie Griffith?

Keira Knightly Valentino

Keira Knightly in this non-traditional boho hippie glam gown by Valentino. You may consider this one strange, but I find it oddly romantic.

Lady Gaga

Last, but CERTAINLY not the least…Lady Gaga.  I could have done without the red rubbery looking gloves, however, I am going BANANAS over this Azzedine Alaia gown.  It’s simply stunning.  Gaga surprised me throughout the entire night with her clean, understated, natural looking makeup, and holy moly those PIPES!  She did Julie Andrews proud up there, and I had tears in my eyes watching her sings a medley of songs from the Sound of Music, my most favorite movie growing up.  I was completely blown away.

My other favorite Oscar moment was Graham Moore’s speech after winning “Best Adapted Screenplay” for “Imitation Game.”  He stated, “I tried to commit suicide at 16 and now I’m standing here,” he said. “I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she doesn’t fit in anywhere. You do. Stay weird. Stay different, and then when it’s your turn and you are standing on this stage please pass the same message along.”  It was completely moving.

So what were your favorite Red Carpet looks?  And what were your favorite Oscar moments? Would love to hear your thoughts!



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!
