The Little White Dress

We all know how important the “little black dress” is. It’s the one article of clothing that will get you through any social event on your calendar. But now that it’s summer, maybe we should switch things up and try a “little WHITE dress”. Yes, the old rules dictate you should only wear white Memorial Day through Labor Day (and we are now in that time frame), however, I do believe the white dress can be worn all year long with the right accessories and other pieces in your closet. White is classic, crisp, and chic, and looks fabulous with a tan. Here are some celebrities rocking the LWD.

People’s Choice Awards

I tried to watch The People’s Choice Awards Wednesday night, but boy was it tough. In my opinion, it should be called “People Under 25 Choice Awards”. It became very clear the only people voting were the youth of today, they even have an award for the “Hottest Movie Star under 25”. Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t there already an award’s show called “Teen Choice Award”?. At about 40 minutes in, I also realized it was a giant advertisement for things like cereal and hair care products. I probably sound like an old geezer, but I thought this was an opportunity to honor those that performed the best. I had never even heard of some of the nominees. But putting aside my disappointment in the actually ceremony, there were some pretty amazing dresses strolling down the red carpet. Here are my favorites.

Ginnifer Goodwin. Not only does she star in one of my favorite shows, “Once Upon A Time”, she also is my choice for best dressed. I love the color-perfect contrast with her raven locks-and the bell sleeves are a wonderful feature.

Jennifer Morrison. She too stars in “Once Upon A Time”. I love the flapper quality of the dress and the top knot is top notch. Amazing!

Kristen Bell. I love that she kept the hair and makeup more natural. The leather and lace in the dress in beautiful in this red color.

Kelly Osbourne. I really like this dress. Very simple, yet classy and beautiful. I am digging her “grayish” hair too. Tres Chic!

Ellie Kemper. Stunning in this little black dress. It’s nice to see her glammed up.

20120112-115531.jpg
Faith Hill. It’s very clear that red is going to be the award color this year. I love the halter design.

20120112-115636.jpg
Jennifer Lawrence. This girl is going to be huge once “Hunger Games” opens. I like that she went with a futuristic look-keeps in line with the character that is going to make her famous.

Vanessa Hudgens. There weren’t many gowns at this event, but she really made it look fresh and glamorous.

Hopefully, the Golden Globes on Sunday offer me more than a teen fest!
