golden globes in shades of nudes...

Seems that shades of nudes and beiges was a huge trend at the 2012 Golden Globes this Sunday. 
As this is a trend I love, elegant, beautiful, and modern, I hope it continues through the new year.

Here are a few of our ladies showing how it's done!

The cut, the super sheer shoulders, the elegance..what's not to love?
Diane Lane 15 January 2012

The vintage style of this one is to die for...
Watch your back, girl, this one may have to get jacked! :-)
By the way, loving the dark hair.
Jessica Biel 15 January 2012

Though the hair in make-up is very gorgeously Marilyn Monroe,
the dress well...let's just say leaves a little bit to be desired.
Amy Poehler 15 Jan 2012

This one has a princess style...or maybe prom. Still pretty.
Julie Bowen 15 January 2012

Miss Beckinsale looks absolutely gorgeous. I like the dress, but it somehow has a wedding dress look to it. It's got to be the lace.
Kate Beckinsale 15 January 2012

Piper showing us that red carpet events do not always have to be serious. :-P
Piper Perabo 15 January 2012

This look has it all, Bohemian hair and jewelry, futuristic seams on the bodice, traditional elagance of the mermaid, love love! Way to go Miss Macpherson!
Elle Macpherson 15 January 2012

Hmm...well...ummmmm.. How's your day going, by the way?
Emily Watson 15 January 2012

The ruching and style of the bodice is lovely, yet the hair and accessories not so much.
A Greek inspired updo with a long pendant necklace would have been ice-cream tons better.
Sarah Paulson 15 January 2012

The Sci-fi cut with the Egyptian inspired embellishment looks like something straight from Stargate, which by the way, I super love. Yep, this dress may have to be stolen. You're killing it Nicole!
This dress also happens to be my Love's favorite of the night. Apparently guys like form fitting dresses... I wonder why... :-P
Nicole Kidman 15 January 2012

Miss McPhee showing us that the nude look can also be sweet and innocent.
Anyone excited about her new television show?
Katherine McPhee 15 January 2012

This one seemed to be the favorite of the night, and I can see why...the artistic elegance of the dress, the oh so Hollywood updo, the fact that it's worn by Charlize Theron...
yep, I can see why it's the favorite of the evening.
Charlize Theron 15 January 2012
Now on to my favorite of the group...
Worn by Miss Giuliana Rancic
The flowing silk chiffon skirt, the sculpted sci-fi looking bodice, the gold embellishment at the waist...absolutely, positively needs to be in my closet now!
Miss Rancic, better keep this one locked up! :-)

style inspiration- 2012 week 2

Had to show you my style inspiration for the week. Absolutely in love. This dress, from Givenchy's SS 2012 collection, gives me thoughts of vacations in Italy, evening gondola trips in Venice, and kisses from my Baby Love. :-)

Thank you, Rumi, for introducing me to this dress and for being a constant source of fashion inspiration.

PREDICTIONS IN STYLE for 2012... duhn, duhn, duuuhhhhhnnnn....

1. "Effortless" beauty. Natural, free, comfortable, and I just woke up looking like this.
2. An even stronger continuance of the health and organic craze. Which I myself have fallen victim too.  :-D
3. On the opposite end we will continue with the edgy leathers, futuristic cuts, and rock chic styles. Combining the three for sexy sci-fi awesomeness. (Love!)
4. The most popular trend will be the continuing hunt for the fountain of youth.
5. While the most important "fashionable" trend will be a larger focus on philanthropy. So find a favorite charity, one close to your heart, and pour yourself into it. Happy 2012, dawls!!

Jennifer Garner July 2011
A 2011 example of "Effortless" beauty that will most likely continue through 2012.

Miss Angelina November 2011
Always a favorite example of Effortless beauty and philanthropy.

Kate Beckinsale Nov 2011
Beautifully showing, with her toned legs, tan skin, and gorgeously healthy hair, 2012's second fashion trend of health and fitness.

Stacy Keibler October 2011
An cool and hot example of the futuristic trend to continue through 2012

Victoria Beckham November 2011
Another example of the edgy, futuristic trend. Love the leggings!

Michelle Pfeiffer October 2011
A goddess example and a queen of the most important trend...
Mastering the fountain of youth! Please, great queen, give us commoners the key!

Demi Moore September 2011
Another goddess of the Fountain of Youth. Dang, girl!

Oprah, always philanthropic, at the opening of her School for Girls in Africa.

Now you know the future. I've looked into my Crystal Ball of Fashion and let you in on the secrets. :-D
Take it or leave it.
But will you be on 2012's best or worst dressed lists?
