Departures: Film Review

I was a big fan of The Fault in Our Stars which meant Departures – also known as Then Came You – had an uphill battle to win me over. The plots are very similar so you can’t help but draw comparisons between them and Departures fails to match up.

American Music Awards: Best & Worst Dressed

You know I love a good red carpet! There were some absolutely gorgeous outfits at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles last night – my favourite was Ariana Grande‘s crop top and white high-waisted trousers. I want this look!

Big Pics: Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber & Shia LaBeouf

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay finally turned up to court 48 minutes late. The actress is here for the beginning of the trial which will establish if she lied to the police and thus violated her probation. She was in New York and missed her first flight and shunned her rescheduled flight for a private jet, which got her into LA with no time to spare. You would think she would take her court date a bit more seriously!

Mariah Carey

I love their outfits! Mariah and her family got right into the St Patrick’s Day celebrations! Here she is with hubbie Nick Cannon and their twins Moroccan and Monroe.

Julianne Hough & Nina Dobrev

Julianne Hough and Nina Dobrev hung out courtside to support the LA Lakers. Could Nina be helping Julianne get over Ryan?! Rumours surfaced last week that suggest she and Ryan Seacrest broke up after three years together. The cause for the split was apparently the American Idol host’s workload. The pair were also joined by Kaley Cuoco and her sister.

Shia LaBouef

I’m impressed at the muscles but I think Shia is looking super gross at the moment. Not feeling this look at all- and it isn’t even for a role. Sad.

Will.I.Am & Justin Bieber

Justin and Will hung out in Barcelona during Justin’s day off from his Believe tour. It is thought they shot the music video to their recent collaboration, That Power. Biebs called Will a “true friend” on Twitter.

The celebrities played a game of tag football on sand at Mardi Gras World on the Saturday night.

SAG Awards 2013: Fashion Hits & Misses

So I’m sure you’ve heard all about the Screen Actors Guild Awards unless you’ve been living in a cave. In case you missed the winners, see the full list here.

This post is all about the fashion and there are three girls which stood out among the rest- Jennifer Lawrence, Amanda Seyfried and Naomi Watts. Now you know my top three, I will show the rest of my hits and misses (including a picture of the girls just mentioned).

 

HITS

Jennifer Lawrence

YES1

You would never guess that Jennifer had just battled pneumonia! She looks amazing. I love the colour of this gown.

Amanda Seyfried

YES2

Yes, she is wearing almost the same colour as Jennifer but Amanda looks gorgeous in this!

Naomi Watts

YES4

The embroidery on this dress is amazing- it’s perfect!

Marion Cotillard

YES3

This is the first time I have liked any of Marion’s awards dresses this year. Usually, she picks duds but I really like this one. I love her hair too.

Jennifer Garner

YES5

Jen looks absolutely radiant in this outfit! While it is a very simple design, it is the colour that wins it for me.

Nicole Kidman

MAYB

I don’t always like this sort of gown but I think Nicole looks super sexy in it.  The colour and her hairstyle make it work.

Nina Dobrev

YES6

This may be an understated dress but I love it- the colour, the fit, everything. Nina looks beautiful!

MISSES

Anne Hathaway

NO1

Many people have praised Anne’s dress but I think it is ugly! I haven’t liked many of her choices this awards season. I hate the sheer bottom half- it is horrid!

Julianne Moore

NO2

While the patterns on the dress aren’t bad, I just think the colour washes her out because she is so pale and the cut is too low for someone of her age. Over 50s shouldn’t have that much cleavage on display, especially when they are starting to droop!

Jane Lynch

NO7

I just think the leather top is a bit too risqué for someone of her age. Someone younger could probably pull it off. The dress itself isn’t THAT bad- I just don’t think it suits Jane.

Rose Byrne

NO6

I don’t like the pale colour and the printed flowers plus the flappy bits at the sides are annoying.

Naya Rivera

NO5

I think Naya has gone a bit too OTT on the boob front! I love that she’s picked an interesting black dress but the corset part with the mesh in the middle is bit too vampy for an awards show.

What do you think?

Critics Choice Awards: Red Carpet Fashion

More awards ceremonies! It has been a crazy week for nominations and awards! Just one night after the People’s Choice Awards, the celebs headed out to the Critic’s Choice Movie Awards. The biggest winners were Jennifer Lawrence and Ben Affleck. Argo won Best Film and Affleck for director, Jessica Chastain won best actress and Daniel Day-Lewis for best actor. For the full list, see here.

So, like usual, here are my fashion hits and misses:

 

HITS 

Jessica Chastain

CCAYES5

This is simple but elegant and it is compliments her hair.

Nina Dobrev

CCA1

I love the colour and the texture. She looks gorgeous.

Naomi Watts

CCAYES4

After a fashion fail last night, Naomi brings it back looking sexy.

Amy Adams

CCAYES6

I love the skirt more than the top half but it’s really nice. Not the best but definitely a hit.

Jennifer Lawrence

CCAYES2

Jen has brought it back after a fashion fail the night before. I don’t really like the random veil-type material hanging down, but the rest is great.

Amanda Seyfried

CCAYES3

I’m not a big fan of the skirt but the top half is gorgeous. So pretty.

MISSES

Leslie Mann

CCANO4

The colour is sweet but the top looks like wallpaper print and the skirt is too big.

Elle Fanning

CCANO2

I have never seen this girl wear anything I like. She always dresses YEARS older- she needs to take tips from Chloe Moretz and dress her age.

Famke Janssen

CCANO3

This is just horrible. There are no redeeming qualities.

Marion Cotillard

CCANO1

I was undecided on this at first but the reason I don’t like it because of the colour and the amount of flowers embroided. If it were white with less flowers, I would love it.
