globes are coming

Who's excited for this weekend?  Not only is it a long weekend for most of you, it's also Golden Globe time!  (And our first wedding of 2011 and a huge Packer playoff game)  There's clearly a lot happening this weekend to be excited about.  

I can't wait for Sunday and the red carpet arrivals.  I love this time of the year.  My husband and I are doing double features to try and see all the "must-see" movies that are nominated, I'm feeling constantly inspired by the actresses and their performances and then there's the fashion.  Sigh, the fashion.  

I'm excited for Sunday because I think the glitz and glamour will be back in full force.  I'm also hoping for a lot of color; beautiful, bright and saturated colors.  

For the first time ever, I'm making a few fun predictions.  I picked out some gowns that I love and hope to see on the red carpet and then I tried to pick the perfect person for them.  

Clearly I am no fashion-ista expert, but it's fun to play.  So enjoy the eye candy...and enjoy the show on Sunday!  

(fingers crossed for miss natalie...go get 'em girl!!)  

I die for this Monique Lhuillier and how amazing would nominee Julianne Moore look in this?  

This Elie Saab gown has nominee Angelina Jolie's name all over it.  Right?  

Oscar de la Renta's little darling, nominee Anne Hathaway, would kill it in this.  This color on her would be delicious.  

I know it won't happen...but how adorable and so Black Swan would (hopefully winner) Natalie Portman be in this?  Plus it would hide that beautiful baby bump that she might be sporting.  This one is Oscar de la Renta again...he never disappoints.    

This Jason Wu dress and its stunning color would look perfectly feminine on Claire Danes.  (though something will clearly have to be done about that sheer top)  

Nothing cures a women scorn like a short sexy dress and a fierce new look.  Remember this coming out party in 2007, after her heartbreak?  

So, I pick this little Jenny Packham number for Eva Longoria.  Cheating men, be damned!  

or maybe this Monique Lhuillier if she wants a little color and a little more length.  

Here a few more that I love...

Elie Saab


and will anyone be bold and wear a print like this Christian Siriano?  I hope so!  

Enjoy the show on Sunday!  Sit on the couch, don your favorite baubles and savor being fabulous, just like all the nominees!  


  1. Love this post, LOVE THESE DRESSES!

    p.s. Watch the NBC pre-show, hosted by someone I like very much : )

  2. DONE! I can't believe you've got Jackson on TV already. :)

  3. Great predictions! I can seriously see some of these celebs in the dresses you chose! Now I need to do some research on what they actually wore :)
