march came and went and i never posted my playlist! my bad. for your listening pleasure, here are my fave tracks from the month. more hip hop and r&b than my usual playlists which is good. was wondering when a good r&b track was gonna catch my attention. :)

anyway, happy listening.

best dressed: oscars

you guys enjoy the oscars last night?  thanks to my dvr and ability to fast forward through commercials and boring categories/speeches, i sure did!  glad that billy crystal and the producers decided to go the simple route and focus the show on why we love movies and why we love going to the movies.  bravo, sirs.

now let's get on to the more important stuff!  no, not recapping the night's winners but recapping the best dressed!  nothing too crazy or controversial on the red carpet this year (except of course for ryan seacrest getting ashed by sasha baron cohen during the preshow! classic). here are my pics for best dressed of the evening......

gwyneth paltrow in tom ford
sleek. elegant. and she's wearing a cape without looking like a super hero! amazing design as expected by mr. ford.

octavia spencer is tadashi soji
she walked onto that red carpet and worked this dress like she already won. i totally teared up as she gave her acceptance speech (the only one i didn't fast forward through). props to her for sticking w/ designer tadashi soji for all her gowns this awards season. she knows what she likes, she knows what looks good on her and she looked incredible all season.

PS - look at that clutch! love love love.

milla jovovich is elie saab
i know i know, another white dress!  sorry, i can't help it, but these were the dresses that made me either gasp or take a second look to swallow up all the wonderful details!  this one's all about the structure and that impeccable shoulder.

michelle williams in louis vuitton
finally a pop of color!  :)  this dress was just so well made, i don't know what else there is to say about it.  that layered peplum and the cute little bow are two of my favorite details.  dresses like this make me want to be a designer just so i can learn how in the hell you make something as intricate as this.

honorable mention:  emma stone

you know i love emma stone's red carpet style, but this time it was less about the dress (beautiful but not jaw dropping) and more about her killer accessories. and her performance on stage with ben stiller as the overzealous presenter (she killed it!).

just look at that clutch and bracelet!!!  insane!  both made my louis vuitton, both drool-worthy accessories that i would kill for.

february playlist

hey folks!

here are my fave tracks for february.  a little bit of everything (as usual). some of my top picks for the month are rancid's "radio" and ou est le swimming pool's "dance the way i feel."

golden globes - best dressed

awards season, let's do this.  here are my faves from tonight's golden globes.
(all pics courtesy of fabsugar.com)

charlize theron in dior
j'adore j'adore j'adore.  hands down my favorite look of the night.  everything about her look - the dress, the shoes, the hair, the HEADBAND, the makeup - is pure perfection. you must take a closer look at all the stunning details of her look here.

claire danes in j mendel
from the front the dress looks beautiful but not jaw dropping. but then claire danes turns around to show off the back and i was floored. pictures do not do it justice. this is one of those dresses you need to see up close. i saw pics on fabsugar of this dress first, but then saw her on e's red carpet and had to pause my dvr to take a closer look. it's just that amazing.

emma stone in lanvin
the eagle is just a little questionable but somehow, just somehow emma stone makes it work. she's become not only one of my favorite actresses as of late (see: the help, crazy/stupid/love) but also one of my favorite fashionistas on the red carpet (see her amazing gucci suit from the people's choice awards). the color blocking of the dress is beautiful, the shoulder detailing exquisite and the hair styling and makeup pull it all together. well done, girl.

salma hayek in gucci
i originally had this dress in my "honorable mention" category but because i can't stop looking at and examining the intricate beading of the top half and the way it works so well with the sequined bottom half, i had to bump this up to the best dressed list. ugh, salma hayek looks too amazing doesn't she. PS i want her hair!

honorable mention: reese witherspoon in zac posen. simple and structured, perfectly tousled hair, and a glowing smile. gotta love reese.
