Trend Alert – Long Nails

At first I wasn’t sure about this trend. I thought that they were scary and looked like witch nails. But then I kept seeing them over and over on cute celebs (not just the scary ones), and I got more interested. Then I was seeing them all over instagram and some of my friends got them and I was like ok I’m going to try them. Now I’m kind of obsessed. I really like them because I think they are lady like if you do them right. Plus, if you want to do any of the fun nail art that’s “all the rage” right now it gives you a lot more room on your nail to do it.

First, here are a couple of my favorite celebs with them!

Adele was one of the first to start doing these.

While, Rihanna and Lana del Rey are repeat offenders, in a good way in my opinion. I always love to see what they are gonna do. Bad Girl gets a little crazy for my most of the time, but I still love seeing hers.images (1)tumblr_ldcor3f4eF1qa3cq2o1_500_large

Lana’s are usually a little long for me, but she’s my beauty idol right now. Love her.lana-del-rey-deliciousnail-trends-stiletto-nails-lana-del-rey

Of course, I think the shape definitely changes how I feel about them. My favorite is the almond shape. The “stiletto” or mountain peak is a little too scary for me. But that’s just me personally and the shape of my hands!

Here are a couple of the ones I have gotten done. I was so obsessed with these first ones. I was so sad when they grew out! But it’s fun because I’ve been finding so many other styles I want to try, especially for fall! I do think that the plain nude nail is one my favorite go-to nails right now though.

Here are a couple more than I’ve found on pinterest and the internet that I love!

2013 SAG Awards

The Screen Actor’s Guild Awards were this Sunday and I don’t know that I was completely blown away with any dresses or completely devasted by any. There were a lot of really good dresses and a few “eh” ones, but not a ton that will stand out in my mind for years to come. I did like a lot more dresses than I hated again at least. Myabe I’m just becoming soft in my old age šŸ˜› I’m just looking forward to the Grammy’s and the Oscars! Yay! I love awards season.

So here we go…Please let me know your opinions!

Nicole Kidman: I actually really liked this, but I had so many in my best dressed already I just put her at the top of my list. Ā The detail on this dress is gorgeous andĀ color is great on her.Nicole Kidman

Jennifer Garner: I don’t feel like this is the best fit ever and I don’t love her hair that much, but the dress is very fun and she looks like a trophy. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.Jennifer Garner SAG

January Jones: At first I really liked this dress. Now I don’t think I love it. I think if the collar wasn’t so high it would be better. It’s not awful though. At least the fit is great. I do NOT like her hair though.January Jones

Morena Barracin: From different angles this dress looks totally different. I think it would be perfect if it didn’t have those two weird meshĀ slits that go so high up the thighs. The one in the middle is ok. Morena Baccarin SAG

Julianna Margulies: I actually love this dress. The fit is great, especially since she is in her forties. I LOVE that she did something fun with her shoes and hair. She has looked really pretty lately I think.Julianna Margulies SAG

Jayma Mays: I like the bottom, but not the top. It makes her look kinda frumpy. In the light this dress looked goregous though. 1192979_ET_SAG_KDM_01

Jenna Fischer: I don’t love the color of the sequins, but I think the fit of this dress is great. She looks really elegant. I wish she had done something a little bit more fun with her hair.

19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - ArrivalsMichelle Dockery: I think this is a little bit too long and it’s a tiny bit boring, because I LOVED her dress at the Golden Globes, but it’s not horrible in any way. It looks like she was trying to be a tiny bit Shades of Grey or something. I don’t know. Michelle Dockery SAG

Katrina Bowden: This dress is a little bit funky, but kind of angelic. I’m not sure how that goes together, but it works. She looks fabulous. And it’s a different enough color that I wouldn’t have put it in my bridal section from the Golden Globes šŸ™‚19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Red Carpet

Tina Fey: She looks so good here. I absolutely love her hair and makeup. I think she looks better and better with age. Such a flattering dress and the belt totally works too. Love her.

Tina Fey SAG

Sofia Vergara: I actually don’t love this. I don’t like that it has one shoulder, but then the other side has the hanging arm…it is a different shape than normal I guess? She always looks beautiful though.Sofia Vergara SAG

Helen Hunt: I think she kind of looks like a trophy too, but I’m ok with it. I think she’s another person who is starting to look better with age, because she definitely wasn’tĀ for a while. She looks really happy and I think that’s the best part about this. But she’s rocking the dress and that’s great!
Helen Hunt SAG

Naya Rivera: I have been going back and forth with this dress. On one hand I think it’s just fine, but then again it’s just fine. She’s so young, why isn’t she wearing something fun! A bright color, or something shorter, or something sparkly! Just something else. I don’t know. It’s not bad. Just nothing special. HerĀ  hair and face are perfect though.

19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - ArrivalsAmanda Seyfried: This fits her so well. I love love the bottom. This was another one that I couldn’t decide if I should put on my best dressed. The only reason I didn’t was because I didn’t love the necklace.
Amanda Seyfried

Kerry Washington: She alawys picks such interesting dresses and I like this, but I just have been loving her choices for her press tour for her new movie so much, that I didn’t love this AS much. (I’ll post those soon!

Kerry Washington SAG

WORSTSĀ 

Rose Byrne: I don’t like this dress or this hair. I usually love her. I’m sad. The Easter Bunny threw up on her. Wth? That’s all.Rose Byrne SAG

Anne Hathaway: Honestly I really don’t like this. I like the top, but I hated the bottom. I didn’t like the tulle and I didn’t like how it didn’t go all the way around. It was really short in the front and then just open. Just not my fav.Ann Hathaway SAG

Julianne Moore: I hate this. Maybe it would be ok on a younger person, but everything looks saggy. I don’t think I need to say anything else.Julianne Moore

Claire Danes: I think she kind of looks like a vampire here…compared to what she wore at the Golden Globes I don’t like this at all. I felt like there was just so much fabric and I thought it was kind of boring.Ā Claire Danes

Lea Michele: Ok, I know that she doesn’t look bad, but I think it kind of looks big on her. There is a lot of fabric going on there. It’s just boring. I liked a lot of the dresses at this show again, so I had to pick something. Plus it looks way better on the model. (And why is the bottom of her hair such a different color?)

Lea Michele SAG

BESTSĀ 

Jennifer Lawrence: A lot of people thought this was boring, but I love this. It fits her perfectly and I love the simplicity of it. She looks stunning. I absolutely love the lips and her hair.Ā Jennifer Lawrence

Jessica Chastain: I love this for the simplicity also. She looks like a true movie star. She definitely caught your eye. Love it.19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Red Carpet

Naomi Watts: I think she looks like an angel. Yes that was cheesy. But she looks so beautiful. I am in love with this dress. The whole look is effortless.1192977_ET_SAG_MJB_01

Marion Cotillard: This has got to be the cutest thing ever. Again it is so simple, but I’m in love with it. The skirt part of it is to die for. I think it totally flatters her.Ā 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Arrivals

Julie Bowen: This is so different! She always looks so great! I absolutely love the sleeves and who wears a leather gown? It’s so modern, I love it! She looks beautiful.
19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - ArrivalsNina Dobrev: No one really talked about Nina, but I think this is the most beautiful color on her. Again very simple, but so pretty. It fit and flattered her so well. I just loved it.

Nina Dobrev SAG

Golden Globes 2013

The Golden Globes were two nights ago and I actually loved more dresses than I hated so it was a success! Of course I love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. They’re the greatest.

So onto my reviews…not that it matters to anyone so much, but I enjoy doing it. I always love to hear other peopel’s opinions…so comment away!!!

Did anyone else notice that there was an awful lot of white at the Globes this year? And not just white, but like bridal white? I literally think people were wearing wedding dresses or something. Or at leastĀ some of theseĀ will definitely be inspiring some wedding dresses in the future. Some of these were great and some not so great…here’s to the “brides”…

Amanda Seyfriend: I like this a lot. It fits her really well. It wasn’t my favorite dress of the night, but she looked great. I also love how soft her hair looks. Wish I could have seen the detailing at the top a little bit more.

Amy Adams: I don’t particularly love this. This is definitely one of the more weddingish looks. I think I may have loved this more if it was another color. I don’t love the tulle at the bottom, but I kind of like the shape. I wish her hair on the one side was not so plastered to her head, but more loose and soft. The color is just too close to her skin tone for me.

Julianne Hough: This, I want to barf on. Her eyes are very dark and vampirey for this big poofy light dress. The dress looks like it came straight out of dancing with the stars and then they added a giant skirt. I would either like the top with a straight down skirt or the bottom…ok I don’t like the bottom at all. Again, maybe a different color or something. But you can’t do sparkle and poof and white…I don’t know. I hate this.

Hayden Panettiere: I do like this. She’s the perfect tan (not overly sprayed!) and the fit is soooo good on her. I like the mermaid shape and I can totally see people copying this for their wedding dress. I like that her jewelry and hair is very simple.

Megan Fox: I think this dress still falls into the bridal category, but she looks great. I do think it kind of looks like a lot of the other dresses she wears. The same shape, but hey if it works, it works! She looks beautiful!

Jennifer Lopez: Everyone loved this dress so much and I didn’t. Maybe I just don’t like it on her. I think the dress is pretty, I just don’t like everything together and I can’t figure out what it is.Maybe it’s just that it’s white.Ā If it has been red or black I think maybe I would like it. Or maroon…yes burgandy, I would have loved.

The Leg…

I’m not sure what was going on this night, but apparently everyone felt like copying Angelina Jolie and thrusting out their leg for the world. Ok, it didn’t work for Angie the first time…

Eva Longoria: I don’t like this much at all. The slit is so high and thenĀ it has such a low neckline. You have to pick one or the other. I would probably put this on the worst dressed list, but her face looks pretty.

Halle Berry: I absolutely hate this. I love Halle, but I hate this. One of her boobs looks three sizes bigger than the other one. The pattern is awful. Why in the world someone would wear this is beyond me? As George said on Fashion Police, this looks like a dress that Beyonce would have worn in a music video 15 years ago, and that’s not a good thing. WORST DRESSED.

Heidi Klum: She never looks bad. Not my favorite dress that she has eve worn, but she looks pretty freaking good. Her hair looks perfect and she’s rocking the dress…I don’t even mind “the leg”.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley: I don’t have tons to say about this. It’s not my favorite. It’s not the worst. I think the shoes cut off her legs and thats hard to do seeing as she has the longest legs in the world. Just eh…

Ok…here are my “in the middles”. Not quite my favorites, but definitely not bad!

Anne Hathaway: I think this is really pretty on her, but it kinda matches her skin. It almost needed something else. It does look very classic and simple though, so I kind of like it for that reason.

Naomi Watts: She looks so glamourous. LOVE the hair. I like the train a lot. I just think the dress itself looks a little bit heavy or something. I like it from the back better than from the front.

Lea Michele: I actually love this. I love the dress and I love the hair. I just don’t love how tan she is. And she’s not doing the annoying pose! haha.

Allison Williams: I think this girl is so pretty and I can’t wait to see her get bigger and bigger. I like this look a lot. It’s simple and classic, but it doesn’t stand out too much to me.

Kristen Bell: Is she not so cute pregnant? I think this dress is way flattering. The neckline makes her look like she has a very short neck….BUT I think the embroidery and beading is beautiful! I love the flowiness and the color. Such a great pick.

Stacy Keibler: I think this dress is a little bit boring for her, but her figure looks awesome! I wish she had done something a little bit more with her hair. I don’t know what, but just something.

Lena Dunham: This isn’t my favorite dress, but I think it was a good dress for her. It’s a great color against her skin and I think the shape makes her look great. I alsoĀ think her makeup is really pretty.

Olivia Munn: I think she is the cutest! I like the simple hair and simple shape, but she made it a little bit fun with the pattern on top. I also love her necklace!

Zoey Deschanel: True Zoey style! A big, bright, fun dress! I just love her! She looks great! The shape is cute and girly and I love the pearls. I can’t fault anything, I just had others I liked more. I just like that she does her own thing, but it’s not so crazy that it’s terrible.

Julianne Moore: I like that she went for classic and elegant. Simple and age appropriate.

Sofia Vergara: The mermaid returns! Sleek as ever! And I love it. This shape just works for her too. I love her hair straight. Sparkle Sparkle! Love it.

Connie Britton: I like this a lot too. I think the color is and shape are flattering and I absolutely love her hair.

Nicole Kidman: I really like this because it’s different from what she was wearing last year. I like that she had soft hair with a more severe dress. The dress was fun.

Kerry Washington: This dress I keep going back and forth on. I’ll look at it and like it, and then I’ll look at it and decide that I don’t. I like her hair. And I like that the dress is different, but I’m still up in the air! Who wants to help me decide!?!

Marion Cotillard: I like the dress. I think it cute and fits her personality, but I think there is something about her hair that is throwing me off. In some pictures shes looks sooo young. Like teenager young. I thought it was Hailey Steinfield or whatever. I guess it’s better to look you, but still…

Kate Hudson: I almost put her on my best dressed, but I had to narrow it down. She looks gorgeous. I love her hair, but she could have put it up so you could see the collar a little bit better. She looks classic, but kinda sexy at the same time.

Jessica Chastain: First off. I do not like her hair. I think the dress is a good color on her, butĀ it’s not my favorite, but I love her so much…so she doesn’t have to be on the worst dressed šŸ™‚

Taylor Swift: I love that she looks so grown up! This is completely different for her! The color is really pretty.Her hair looks a little bit wet or something, but I think that’s the only thing I don’t like.

Emily Deschanel: I absolutely love the shoulders on this dress. I would wear this right now. I love the shape and the length and I think she looks absolutely beautiful. This was almost on my best dressed too, but I had to narrow šŸ™

Worsts

Sienna Miller: I honestly have no idea what is happening here. This looks like something my mom would have put me in for Easter Sunday when I was like three, but a little bit shorter. I do not like this at all. And I don’t have anything to say about it. I also think it looks like she just pulled her hair into a bun and left the house.

Rachel Weisz: I actually kind of like this in pictures, but on tv it was not that great. It looked weird and didn’t move well. I also don’t think that she should have worn this to the Golden Globes. Also with how many people looked so good, I had to pick worst dressed for this. I do like her hair.

Rachel Zoe: Ok, I do realize that this is just an after party…but spray tan much? Wow. The dress is pretty cute, but it makes her looks sooooo skinny because it’s so baggy. Yikes!

Julieanne Marguiles: A lot of people liked this a lot…I didn’t. I think it’s kind of cool in the back, but I think it looks really gothic, especially with her hair slicked back into that ponytail. I’m not a huge fan of the short skirt and then the see-through overlay. It has to be done a particular way. I’m just not a fan.

O, and don’t forget Halle and Julianne Hough…shudder shudder.

Bests

Michelle Dockery: I love love love the gold collar/top of this dress. I love the entire dress. The shape is gorgeous. This is my favorite white dress of the night. The neckline goes so well with the length of her hair.

Claire Danes: Seriously? She just had a baby. Amazing! Her hair looks so full and pretty. I love the color and the ruching on the front of the dress. It looks effortless.

Emily Blunt: She is one of my favorite people and she stays super under the radar. I love this dress. The detailing is gorgegous. I think the color is amazing on her and I love the pop of color with the earings. A simple bag and bun tied it all together!

Jennifer Lawrence: I love this so much. The fit is perfect. The color looks great on her. I love love love this shape. She looks like a classic movie star.

Lucy Lui: I think this is so great. I don’t know what it is, but I want to wear it. Right now. I love it. I know it’s not the spring or anything, but I absolutely am in love with this! She just looks so cute! I love the shape and the print. What are your thoughts on this dress?

Nicole Richie: I don’t know why I like this so much, but I think she looks amazing. The color stands out on her and I love her interesting clutch. Her hair and makeup are gorgeous!

Jessica Alba: Does she ever look bad? She’s as pretty as a peach…no pun intend. Love this. From the hair to the mermaid bottom! Beautiful colors and a perfect fit!

Jennifer Garner: She looks stunning. That’s all.Ā I love this color on her. I love the texture. I love her jewelry. I love her hair. I love her makeup. I love everything.
