The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Super Sunday has come and gone. And I’m not talking about that silly, over-hyped football game - I’m talking about the academy awards. For me, awards season truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Theatres are packed with amazing films, television is packed with award shows, web sites are packed with analysis and predictions and the fashion mags are packed with red carpet photos. It's a little taste of heaven. I just can't get enough of it. And while I understand that the festivities are truly about "the work" the fashion isn't so bad either!!!

While it is definitely my plan to address the films of 2006 in a coming post - I’m gonna tell you what the academy got right and how I might have chosen differently. First and foremost, I want to share my opinions on the insanely superficial stuff - how everybody looked last night!!!

First, Reese Witherspoon was absolutely breathtaking. Can you believe how gorgeous?!?!?! The layers at the bottom of that gown were exquisite. I'm telling you, between this and her picture perfect Golden Globes Ensemble. She is my pick for this award season's best dressed.

Next, Helen Mirren... Wow! It seems a photo doesn't do her justice, she was absolutely radiant. This woman is the graphic illustration of "elegance". I was so excited to see her win and jack black wasn't kidding - she is smoking hot!

Nicole Kidman (minus her ugly shoes), Penélope Cruz, Cate Blanchett and (as much as I hate to say it) Cameron Diaz were some of my other favorites. Kudos to the brave ladies (and stylists) who tried something different!! Here's a link to InStyle Magazine's top 12. Comparing their picks and mine - it's clear why it is my fashion bible!
