2014 Golden Globes - The Good, The Bad & The Funny

Last night's soiree was a boozy one, my friends. And thankfully so. I really needed some laughs and, as always, Amy & Tina did not disappoint. Tina's subtle Taylor Swift dig, Emma Thompson tossing her Louboutins and Julia Louis-Dryfus mowing down a hot dog were just a few of the side-splitting moments of the night.
Even the red carpet turned out to be a wee bit of fun which was good since the fashions weren't as fab as years past. But there are always a few who bring it.....

Best Dressed
Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren / Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad / Elizabeth Moss in J. Mendel / Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive

Julianna Margulies in Andrew Gn / Margot Robbie in Gucci / Julie Delpy in Ramona Keveza /  Michelle Dockery in Oscar de la Renta

Ladies of the night.

Kills it. Every. Single. Time. I realize it most likely takes three cranes to get her to look like this but it's impressive nonetheless.

Top Trends
Pregnancy is a big trend in my personal life. (I stopped counting the number of friends currently expecting at a dozen.) This was also the trend yesterday at Something White's Boutique Bridal Bazaar where at least a third of the vendors had a baby on board. So why would the Globes be any different?

Hot Mamas
Olivia Wilde in Gucci / Kerry Washington in Balenciaga / Drew Barrymore in Monique Lhullier

Black and White - it's a mixed bag of hit or miss here
Laura Carmichael in Viktor & Rolf /Allison Williams in Alexander McQueen / Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior / Zosia Mamet in Reem Acra / Hayden Panettiere in Tom Ford / Julia Roberts in Dolce & Gabbana

I Love You But Not Your Dress 
Each of these ladies is stunning but there is just something that's off the mark a bit for me.
Amy Adams in Valentino / Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta / Sandra Bullock in Prabal Gurung / Lena Dunham in Zac Posen

Worst Dressed
Megan Mullally / Heidi Klum in Marchesa /Zoe Saldana in Prabal Gurung / Paula Patton in Stephanie Rolland
The Sad Panda Award Goes To...
Mila Kunis stunned in the platinum gown but there was not one instant where she didn't look absolutely miserable. (this was the happiest pic I could find) Even when she presented she seemed quite depressed.

Boutique Bridal Bazaar Giveaway!

This Sunday, the fab gals at Something White are back with their third annual Boutique Bridal Bazaar. If you're newly engaged or planning a social event, you won't want to miss it, and I have 2 tickets to give away!

Typically, bridal shows are beyond boring. With no imagination, the vendors have the same thing for nearly every bride and we've all seen it before. Imagine your pinterest page coming to life with local artisans who can craft the day of your dreams with inspired designs, food and accoutrements.

Tudor Arms Hotel
Every year the Bazaar is located in a fun, unexpected location (former Dredger's Union and 78th Street Studios) and this year they've upped their game by hosting in the grande dame herself, the Tudor Arms Hotel. The 1933 Gothic Revival building first opened as the swanky and über exclusive Cleveland Club. In 2011, two of its original ballrooms were completely restored.

This year guests will be treated to an avant garde mix of vendors who can provide couples with poptails (cocktail + popsicle), locally sourced catering, gourmet coffee bars, culinary confections and even boozy cupcakes! (you'll know where to find me)
Last year's popular "Etsy Aisle" will be back featuring killer handmade goods and you can relax in the inspirational lounge area while treating yourself to a donut buffet.  One thing you simply can't miss is the Something White fashion show that starts at 3:15.

Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door (if still available) and I have 2 to give away!
Enter via Rafflecopter below. Contest ends Tuesday, January 7th at midnight and winner announced Wednesday morning.
