Ahhh, awards season. I know I’m late to the party, probably unfashionably so by now, but I still like to have my two-penneth post. And I kind of wanted to know, what did you think of the frocks this year?
Because I was disappointed. I flicked through all those red carpet shots on Vogue and saw just three that drew my attention. When I look at a red carpet outfit I look at the lot – the dress, the hair, the accessories – and only three women seemed to me to have pulled the whole thing off with breathtaking aplomb.
So. Angelina Jolie. Gotta admit, I’m not usually a fan – she’s not remotely my type, being too angular, too pointy, too severe: I prefer my women softer and more voluptuous, but that’s just a personal thing. Didn’t stop me being blown away by how utterly beautiful she looked on Sunday, though – from head to toe stunning, and in a refreshingly simple dress amongst a sea of ruffled skirts…
What was it with the ruffled skirts? Dianna Agron’s laser-cut masterpiece was perfect for her colouring, fabulously styled with simple clean hair and matching lips, and from the waist upwards frankly astonishing. But those ruffles just couldn’t be kept at bay! Thankfully, relatively low key comapred to a lot of the frocks this year, and therefore not ruffly enough to drown her pure radiance. Undeniably gorgeous!
And my third and final stunner, the astonishingly sexy Helen Mirren. If I look even half as good as she does at 66 I’ll be delighted. And it’s not just that fabulous figure – she positively oozes beauty and class. Enough so, once again, to make up for the darned ruffles!
And I don’t have a picture here, but did anyone else think Seth Rogen has scored well beyond his league with his absolute stunner of a wife? Not many women can pull of canary yellow with such aplomb, but she looked akin to Snow White on her way to a fairytale ball! Lovely, just lovely!
To close, a little treat for the ladies in the shape of Gerard Butler. Enjoy!
