Red On The Carpet

I know it's not the Oscars, but come on actors, it's still Hollywood and it's still a red carpet!  This is an opportunity to get dressed to the nines, to wear something spectacular.  I was truly hoping that somebody would be bold and step out of the box a little a la Cher/Bob Mackie circa 1986, but the carpet was a homogenized sea overloaded with Leiber, Leighton and Louboutin.  Okay, but that's just the accessories, right?  What about the dresses?  Nice.  That's all I can say.  Nice.  Nothing daring or spectacular.  Nothing memorable.  So, I'm not even going to bother with a best-dressed/worst-dressed list.  Instead, I'll just touch on one of the trends that showed up on the red carpet -- red.  The color is always classic so it's a safe bet when in doubt, but naysayers and annoying "fashion police" might argue that it's not a good idea to wear red on the red carpet, but I disagree (as I do with most of what they say).

Maybe I'm biased, but I think the best example of a red dress on a red carpet is jewelry designer Wendy Brandes wearing her custom piece (by STACY LOMMAN : NEW YORK of course!)

Here are some other lovey ladies wearing red to the 2012 Emmy's...

Post Olympics - Missing Britain

I was sad to bid farewell to the Olympic Games even though I wasn't overly thrilled with NBC's coverage.  Did we really need to see four thousand hours of water polo?  I said it before, I'll say it again, "Fun to play, boring to watch."  Aside from a few athletes/races/events, I thought the fun segments that Mary Carillo did as she traveled all over the city of London and the country were pretty much the highlights of the summer games (BTW, doesn't she have the BEST job?).  They made me miss England since I haven't traveled there for several years now.  Since the Games have been over, I've been feeling nostalgic and I took the opportunity last night to wear the "Union Jack Dress" from my Fall 2012, Modern World Collection

As most of you know, New York Fashion Week is happening and last evening Zang Toi showed an unbelievably exquisite collection.  I attended the show with jewelry designer, Wendy Brandes who looked beautiful (and tall!) in one of Zang's dresses.  I might be a bit biased, but I think the two of us were the best dressed!  Kirstie Alley had nothin' on us -- okay, she had her dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on her arm, but I digress...
