Standing O or Hell No: Emmy Awards 2017

It’s officially awards season and I’m officially swooning!  Thank you, good ladies of the Emmys, for giving us something to DISCUSS: First bullet point – Zoe Kravits of Big Little Lies in Dior (above).  The degree of complexity on this dress is HIGH.  On the wrong girl this gown would read Fraggle Rock but on […]

Standing O or Hell No: The Tony Awards 2017

I can point to many times in my life when my tendency towards stream of consciousness has gotten me in trouble.  For instance in my Goldman Sachs days, while attending a productivity seminar, the presenter asked the group for our understanding of “posting.” My hand shot up.  (It is important to pause and note that I […]

Standing O, Hell No, or So-So: Cannes 2017

Apologies for interrupting a show already in progress: The Cannes Film Festival.  But I continue to receive a multitude of texts to the tune of: “Cannes you please stop everything and blog some dresses?” Faithful readers know I am incapable of ignoring a pun and so I will jump in late with a mini-review… A […]

Standing O, So-So, or Hell No: MTV Movie/TV Awards

It’s a universal truth that if you attend an MTV event it is mandatory that you select your outfit from the following categories: See-through Micro mini Replete with sequins and/or gems Metallic Skin tight Confusing Apparently Cara Delevingne (above) was coerced by Saint Laurent to submit to each and every grouping. However, while I don’t […]

Standing O, So-So, or Hell No: Met Gala 2017

Throwing a costume ball is always a huge risk considering that the success of the party hinges partially on the creativity of the attendees and their ability to interpret the theme.  Even though Anna Wintour rules the Met Gala guest list with an iron fist (in all likelihood that fist is chain mail), there will […]

Standing O or Hell No: Oscars 2017

Lent begins Wednesday which is disconcerting to me on many levels (but perhaps not as disconcerting as being told you won Best Picture and then NO! There’s a mix up and you, well, LOST and have to slink back to your seat after having already thanked the Academy, the world, and your first grade teacher.)  […]

Standing O or Hell No: The Grammys 2017

If awards season is a marathon and the Golden Globes is fashion responding to the starting pistol, then the Grammys is fashion at mile 19 clutching its heart and wondering where all the oxygen went.  Except for a few ladies, most choices seemed to be the product of extreme hypoxia to the brain. Adele looked […]

Standing O or Hell No: The SAG Awards

Judging from the barrage of texts/emails I received between last night and today, many of you are seeing red.  And I am not talking about the color of the SAG carpet.  The consensus seems to be that you are largely underwhelmed by the looks that were trotted out for last night’s SAG awards.  Even the […]

Standing O or Hell No: People’s Choice Awards

The People’s Choice Awards happened Wednesday night.  What’s that?  You weren’t aware?  Well, apparently no one was except for J Lo who alone brought her A Game.  Let it be said that, like Naomi, she must also collude with The Devil because the years pass by and she remains perfectly…perfect (her love life not withstanding).  […]

Standing O or Hell No: Golden Globes 2017

I can’t wait until I actually achieve something significant because what I learned on Golden Globes Sunday is that you are a terrifically supportive group!  All day I received messages to this general tune: CONGRATULATIONS! AWARD SEASON IS IN FULL SWING!  It was the functional equivalent of the time my son brought home a life-sized […]
