Red Carpet

I love red carpet fashions just like any true fashionista.  Now that it’s part of my job to keep up with the red carpet I always win the remote control away from my husband when E! Fashion Police or Entertainment Tonight comes on.   It’s fun reviewing sponsorship proposals for the Golden Globes, Sag Awards, Grammy’s, Oscars and other magazine-affiliated after-parties.  And I love that having to be in-the-know about the latest celebrities (so I can best evaluate how much to invest in their hair styling sponsorship) is a job requirement.

Post Golden Globes, I got such a kick out of these adorable photos from Toddlewood and knew I had to share with you all!

If you like these photos, you should follow me on Pinterest where I have a board filled with young fashionistas who deserve to walk the red carpet. Enjoy!

Miss China, Miss Korea, Miss Japan

Ok, so if you’ve been following my blog, you know I love pageants.  The glitz, the glamour, the eye candy and imagined cat fights backstage are all tantalizingly alluring to the girly girl in me.  I remember pageant nights were one of the only nights I, as a kid growing up in a small town in MI was able to stay up past bedtime.  My mom, dad and I would watch together and all debate on who should make the final round and of course later be crowned.

Those were the days when weight stats appeared alongside height and age.  Now the weight portion is omitted and replaced with silly random facts.  Miss Brazil I learned yesterday, “kisses her shoulders when nervous” and Miss Russia  “has a teddy bear collection”.   It was hard for me to fathom that any contestant would willingly want to be forever remembered by her famous teddy bear collection but to each her own.

This year’s contestants were gorgeous as expected but what I didn’t expect to see were so many lookalikes.  Was it just me or did Miss Hungary Agnes Konkoly resemble Rachel Bilson?

And what about Olivia Palermo resembling Olivia Culpo (Miss USA now crowned Miss Universe 2012)?

And did anyone else think Miss Venezuela 2012 Irene Sofia Esser Quintero reminded them of   Sofia Vergara?

I love the Oscars, not ‘cuz I’m a movie buff but because of the 1hr fashion parade that solidifies the season’s trends.  In line with spring trend colors,  blushes, and Gr-eige (all forms of grey and beige), many celebrities showed off pretty pales.  The following dresses from the Oscar fashion parade were on my favorites list:

You can see below that the ‘gr-eige” trend with blush tones were prominent at the Golden Globes awards too.
