The SAG Awards 2012

Kudos to Rose Byrne for doing something totally different on the red carpet tonight….I don’t think many other actresses would’ve been able to pull off such a bold look, but she pulled it off and styled it perfectly.

The jumpsuit is from Elie Saab’s 2009 Couture collection and she apparently considered wearing it to the Emmys two years ago… so glad that she wore it tonight though!… It just proves that you don’t have to wear the latest outfit to look fabulous.

To me this outfit fulfilled every red carpet requirement: it was eye-catching, glamorous, flattering, classy and chic.

I also loved her sleek bob, which hairdresser Harry Josh described as “70s inspired Michelle Pfeiffer from Scarface meets Anna Wintour’s bob.”


Entertaining Tips From Collin Cowie

I just love Colin!….. I mean he doesn’t just throw fabulous parties for celebrities…he lives fabulously too!!!  I have been living by his rules or Tips on how to entertain ever since he was on Oprah a few years ago!
Colin believes that there’s no better way to share in life than to invite people into your home. “I think you will agree that some of the most memorable moments in life are spent around the dinner table.” he says.

Here are 3 main tips that I think would be key to successful entertaining!!!

Be Organised:

You won’t find any junk drawers in Colin’s kitchen. Every cupboard and drawer is meticulously organized. “I can find anything I’m looking for at a moment’s notice,” he says. “It allows me to be able to entertain whenever I need. I get really turned on by keeping everything in the right place.”

Always Be Ready:

Thanks to a huge stock of dinnerware and supplies in his organised kitchen, Colin says he can throw together a dinner for 100 with an hour’s notice. He keeps 24 chickens, a dozen racks of lamb, duck breasts, frozen soups, chicken stocks and veal stocks in the freezer…and a huge variety of chilled beverages are always ready in the refrigerator….. just in case!!!… ( Now you obviously don’t have to stock up the same amount of food or drinks in your fridge… but you get the idea!!!)

Be Creative:

Colin obviously sets the most beautiful tables and I think its because he practices all the time… I mean he sets a proper table even when he dines alone at home!!!!…By arranging your table settings everyday even when you are dinning alone you get to experiment and try different table settings and that helps with coming up with some sort of creative ideas for settings!!!


Book Of The Week: The Carrie Diaries

After years of speculation on whether or not a Sex and the City prequel would come to be, the balls are finally rolling… and I thought that it would be nice to read The Carrie Diaries before the show airs!

The CW, home to shows like Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie, has officially ordered a pilot forThe Carrie Diaries, based on this book ofcourse. Amy Harris, who worked on HBO’s original SATC, already wrote the pilot… can’t wait for the show to come out and see how Carrie Bradshaw looked like in the ’80s !!!

Style Icon: Cate Blanchett

Since it is the red carpet season I thought that I should post about my favorite red carpet celebrity!…..Cate Blanchett

Cate is one of the most intelligent, most capable and most stylish actresses. Her performances in both the Elisabeth movies and as Bob Dylan were just so impressive… but unlike a lot of actresses she is equally as impressive on the red carpet and I think that that’s because she takes as much risks in fashion as she takes in choosing her roles!…..she always goes for an avant garde look, that is always incredibly stylish and never boring…. Though I don’t see myself in most of her choices I can’t help but wait to see what she’ll wear in events… she never fails to surprise me…. She has a style that only she can carry off…. There is nothing common about her or her style… Nobody owns the red carpet like her!

There are so many looks that I love … But I narrowed it down to my favorite 3!

She wore this black Alexander Mcqueen gown to the Golden Globes in 2007. It was the perfect example of how to stand out in a black dress!

Another Alexander McQueen dress but this one is from the Spring Summer 2009 collection…. It looked so much better on her than it did on the red carpet!

I’ve saved the best for last!!!….Cate in this vintage Christian Lacroix Haute Couture…. This is by far my favorite dress on her!
