Red Carpet Alert: The Fashionable Femmes of the Golden Globes

I love award season. Oh, how I love it!

And the Golden Globes are always the perfect way to kickstart the season as they are the MOST fun!

Here are the trends I spotted on the red carpet this evening. Do you agree?

Who was your favorite?

Starlets in Ravishing Red: 

Winners Jennifer Lawrence & Claire Danes as well as nominees, Zooey Deschanel & Marion Cotillard, rocked the red carpet in these scarlet stunners.

Beauties in Black

Golden Globe Winner, Julianne Moore and nominees Julianna Margulies, Sofia Vergara, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Nicole Kidman, presenters Kate Hudson, Salma Hayek and GIRLS stars Allison Williams and Zosia Mamet  brought black to life in these gorgeous black beauties.

Stunning in Silver

These silver screens sirens stunned in gowns of silver: nominee for Nashville Connie Britton, Thandie Newton, Isla Fisher and Carla Gugino.

Nice in Neutrals

Megan Fox, Kerry Washington, Helen Hunt and Amanda Seyfried played it nice (and a little naughty) in shimmering, skin-skimming neutrals.

Pretty in Powder Blues

Winner, Jessica Chastain, Nicole Richie and Rosario Dawson played it pretty in powdery blue hues.

Perfect in Plum

Multiple winner Lena Dunham and nominee, Taylor Swift, donned shades of plum perfectly.

Noble in Navy

Some of the best actresses of our time, including the Cecil B. Demille Award recipient Jodie Foster and nominees Glenn Close and Sally Field, were noble in navy gowns.

The Rest of the Rainbow

Other actresses such as Lucy Liu, Jessica Alba, Halle Berry and Olivia Munn represented the rest of the rainbow.

Here’s, and cheers, to many more gorgeous gowns this award season!


Tress Tuesday: Kerastase Confession

So, as I mentioned in Sunday’s High-Low 3 post, I had the most amazing Thursday last week thanks to Kerastase!

First, I was invited to be Kerastase’s guest at the gorgeous Young Hollywood Awards!

Just when I thought it couldn’t get better than that, I was invited to Rossano Ferretti for a primping Kerastase treatment-filled afternoon.

First, my stylist Salina applied the Kerastase Bain Cristalliste shampoo and conditioner. Cristalliste is known to make your hair shine like glass while being weightless as light. Would I like to try it? Yes, please!

Kerastase Cristalliste

I learned from Salina that Kerastase Cristalliste was designed specifically for long-haired young women, like me, who have complained to their hairstylists for years about weighed-down roots and dried out ends. The fairy-sounding Cristalliste “liquid light” complex is supposed to create the most sultry shine and weightless, lovely luminosity every time you wash your hair. If only Cinderella had been this lucky!

Next up, Salina applied the concentrated Bain Substantif Concentrate sprayed in my strands along with a dose of the Shine Pixilist for an extra dose of shine-infused repair.

Getting gorgified at Rossano Ferretti with Kerastase Paris

As for styling, Salina went with the Kerastase Mousse Substantive and Elixir Ultime for the ultimate in volume and shine.

Kerastase Styling Tools

Would the result live up to the hype?

My previously dull, dry, flat summer hair was artfully amped up (especially at the roots) and my hair surface had glass-like shine. I must confess that I am a Kerastase convert! No weighed down tresses here! Just a thick, voluminous, glossy-as-glass mane!

I love it when products do what they and say what they do! Don’t you?

And, as for the evening’s fun?

Well, here my hair is 5 hours later at the Young Hollywood Awards with “Best Scene-Stealer” Award recipients, Rico Rodriguez and Nolan Gould of ABC’s Modern Family:

And the winners of Kerastase’s Young Hollywood Awards Sweepstakes who were flown out to LA, received Kerastase treatments at Rossano Ferretti and given a grand Young Hollywood experience:

The lovely Winners!

And I got to hang out with these lovely ladies! Notice that 7 hours later, my hair is still gleaming!

7 hours later with Megan & Kristen: Hair still shining!

Thank you, Kerastase, Young Hollywood Awards and Rossano Ferretti for a beautiful, shiny, starry Hollywood evening!
