Glamour has announced their best dressed women of 2012 including 50 A-listers, from socialites, to musicians, to actresses and models. All were handpicked off of the fashion-forward apple tree and given a thumbs up for the attire they have sported so far this year. Some of the women are more obvious choices like Angelina Jolie and Kate Moss; however, Glamour also chose peeps that have made some questionable fashion choices in the public eye. We here at Glam Damn It have a few we’d like to applaud, and other’s that, well, we just keep getting second-hand embarrassment for- as far as their fashion sense goes!
Films have always played a huge role in shaping fashion and trends, past and present. What better way to reference ensembles and styling techniques than through our favorite stars and storylines? For all of you fashionistas who have yet to see one, two, or all of them, we highly recommend you watch these timeless films for your creative, fashionable needs. Hopefully they will leave you just as inspired as they left us!
Okay, this one is pretty obvious, but let us start from the beginning. We couldn’t bare to make a list of fashionable movies without including the seed of classic taste: Audrey Hepburn’s character, Holly Golightly. As an eccentric socialite in the fashion Mecca of our Nation, Holly brings a whole new meaning to the word “chic.” The LBD, tiara, and elbow-length gloves will forever be a classic look.
On February 26th, fashionistas the world over will be glued to their screens studying every inch of every detail of every one of their favorite stars. The Academy Awards is the red carpet to end all red carpets. Careers are made based on outfit choices for the Oscars. Who could forget Anne Hathaway in that red Valentino a few years ago? Prior to that appearance, she was a Disney star, but afterwards she was known for her chic taste in her personal wardrobe and last year even hosted the ceremony herself. When it comes to style, everyone pulls out all of the stops - especially the nominees.
It's that time of year again --Hollywood's award season! The time of year where people obsess over who-won -what-wearing-what-on-the-arm-of-who. Did you get all that? More importantly, film greatness is honored and recognized. While the Academy Awards have received lukewarm reviews in the past few years over choice of host, a slow-moving program, and generally unfunny punchlines; everyone gets excited over who will win best Actor and Actress in a leading role, and that final nailbiting moment: Best Picture of the Year.
(For the record, leads we're pulling for are Brad Pitt in Moneyball and Glenn Close in Albert Nobbs.)
“I don’t want to wait...for a Dawson Creek’s reunion."
Katie Holmes, after discussing her latest film Jack & Jill, recently told Good Morning America that she wouldn’t mind getting together with her Creek-mates for a reunion: “It would be fun. I had so much fun working on that show and I loved everyone so much and I think about it with such fond memories.”
After ending eight years ago, Holmes famously played Joey Potter, the tomboy who was always torn between childhood best friend, Dawson Leery (James van der Beek) and his best friend, Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson). Michelle Williams also played Jen Lindley, Dawson’s next door neighbor. The WB drama show lasted from 1998-2003.
For the 49th year straight, The New York Film Festival brings us dozens of specially and diligently selected films from across the world. Thousands flock from every part of the globe to the annual internationally renowned event . Along with the films, attendees will enjoy special events, panel discussions, dialogue with directors and more. Starting today September 30 through October 16, movie-goers can experience films from the mainstream like “My Week With Marilyn” starring Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe. The film is based on memoirs by Colin Clark , who worked as an assistant of Laurence Olivier’s film “The Prince and the Showgirl."
From the runway:
The LWD dominated the spring 2011 ready-to-wear runway shows, most notably Dolce & Gabbana's. Jill Stuart’s take on the LWD included structured silhouettes mixed with ruffles and frills. Azzaro’s show-stopping LWD encompassed a crystal bodice and a tired white silk skirt both united by a large black bow. Monique Lhuillier’s LWD designs were just angelic. Some other LWD designers included Derek Lam, Chanel, and Alexander McQueen (which is in the hands of the deserving Sarah Burton who took over for the late McQueen).
2. For the "everyday" girl: Abercrombie, ‘Kylie’ dress ($68 at Abercrombie)
Fashion moves fast; do not get left behind. The LWD is the season's hottest trend, but it may become your fierce new closet staple.
That's the downside of the Oscars.
Every year, a bunch of actors and actresses end up disappointed following the nominations. They were acclaimed by the critics, and still...
This year, the announcement has been more particularly hard to swallow for five of them: Andrew Garfield (The Social Network), Ryan Gosling (Blue Valentine), Mila Kunis (Black Swan), Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Right), and Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter).
And to really put the knife in, each of them saw a costar earning a nomination: Michelle Williams for Blue Valentine, Natalie Portman for Black Swan, Jesse Eisenberg for The Social Network, Annette Benning for The Kids Are All Right and Amy Adams, Christian Bale and Melissa Leo, all for The Fighter.
Designer Michelle Williams will present her hottest looks for spring with a cool treat during Fashion Week.
Models dressed in pieces from Williams’ Fifties pinup-inspired collection will serve ice cream from Brooklyn’s Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream truck outside both Bryant Park and Milk Studios on September 11 from 2 to 4 p.m.
It is a great way for the designer to show off her collection, including bustiers and motorcycle jackets, because as a smaller label, she does not have a presentation in the tents.
Let’s hope for a heat wave!
