The Golden Globe dresses and Downton Abbey recap
What a divine night of television watching.
Nearly all of the stars looked great last night. It was a beautiful red carpet.
A good time was had by all.....NOT.
Tommy Lee Jones sat stone faced with that wrinkly crabby face of his thru a hilarious bit by Kristen Wigg and Will Ferrell. I mean. Come on Tommy!
President Clinton (I believe all Presidents former and present deserve the title of President and never Mr. or first name. Although I did say, "It's slick Willy" when he came on the stage.) introduced "Lincoln" with a wonderfully written piece. That was pretty cool.
Daniel Day Lewis won and gave a gorgeous acceptance as did Ben Afleck.
These two. Hilarious.
Below you will find my most favorite dresses.
This is the young girl from Nashville. Hayden Panettiere is wearing a Roberto Cavalli dress. This light, light pink dress had lovely details and I think everything about this worked for her.
Such a pretty color. Perfect fit. Rosario Dawson. Can't find designer's name yet.
I think this is Nancy O'Dell. She is on Entertainment Tonight. But wow! What a color and what a perfect figure.
Taylor Swift looking amazing. I'm not a fan of the model stare but I love this dress on her. The top of this dress is reminicent of something Grace Kelly wore (in baby blue) . Love this neckline. Katie did not :o) Taylor has wonderful retro taste and I love seeing what she wears. She was not too happy to lose last night to Adele. By the way, dress by Donna Karan.
Speaking of Adele. She gave the best speech when she won for the Skyfall song. I feel like I have seen this dress on her before but let me tell you, this is the only dress I would ever even try on to go to a formal affair. And I would wear my hair and make up like that. Yup. I am Adele. Except for the voice and everything else.
Zooey Deschanel wore Oscar de la Renta. I sure like her.
I wasn't going to do anything about bad fashion, cause it wasn't so bad...but when I saw this picture of Angelica Houston I gagged. Yes. I will never get used to what some people do to themselves. Her face is a tragedy...and she doesn't know it. I guess that's good. She thinks she looks good. What is in the Hollywood water???
Gorgeous all around. Julianne Hough in Monique L'huillier.
I like her style.
This dress is stunning. It is by Vera Wang. Julia Louise-Dreyfus has wonderful style and looks so good every time I see her. She has it all.
Lucy Liu in Carolina Herrera. I love this dress. LOVE IT.
It is on the best and worst lists. And I understand that. But beautiful fabric speaks to me.
I love this retro wallpaper dress. I think it is the coolest dress I have seen in a long time.
Way to go.
Maggie Smith won a Golden Globe last night for Downton Abbey. Michelle Dockery was at the awards and did not win, but I thought you would like to see her dress. She was a good sport and laughed and laughed.
Now. On to Downton Abbey.
Everything in the house was about her....for once.
I loved how Edith tried to get the answers out of Mr. Wimp. Mr. Wait Until Your are Standing At the Altar!!
Good Grief. What a dope.
Would you marry someone 25 years older than you? Someone who thought you were lovely?
I wasn't against the wedding at all and am very sorry for Edith.
I like that Matthew said "What can we do to help Edith?"
But last night Matthew the Moper really got on my nerves. He looked goofy in his robe. Chubby even.
I was just so tired of his whining. No whiners allowed. Snap out of it.
I loved Mary's tenacity. I also love that they show Matthew and Mary arguing and disagreeing because this is marriage and it is not all happy times and agreements.
Feeling guilty. still. again.
But now. All is well at Downton, well except for Thomas and Mrs. O'Brian. Looks like romance is brewing downstairs between Mr Carson and Mrs. Hughes. And the previews show Sybil in some kind of trouble. What can that be?
A lot happened in that short hour episode.
Wishing Edith happier tomorrows.
What did you think about Downton Abbey last night?
Any opinions on the dresses?
Thanks for coming around and listening/reading my ramblings.
It's aways so much more fun to share.
