Booksmart: Film Review

I had heard so many glowing things about Olivia Wilde‘s directorial debut Booksmart so my expectations were super high when I went to see it and I’m pleased to report that it exceeded them. It is such a wonderful film!

Life Itself: Film Review

I love Dan Fogelman‘s TV creation, the emotional family drama This Is Us. Many people (particularly in the UK) have criticised it for being too sentimental but I love the story and characters and how moving it is. I never noticed how sappy it was watching an episode a week, but Fogelman’s love of the sentimental tearjerker was blindly obvious with Life Itself, which he wrote and directed.

Why I have given up on Vinyl

I give every show at least three episodes before I decide whether to continue with it or let it go. I think that’s a good amount of time to see what the series will actually be like – but with Vinyl I couldn’t even make it halfway through episode three before I just decided to call it quits. I just did not want to watch anymore.

Oscars 2016: Best & Worst Dressed

We have finally reached the end of the film awards season! It felt like we would never get there but yes, the Oscars, the pinnacle of everything, happened Sunday night. Sure, the prizes are a good talking point but this is ALL about the fashion. This is the biggie – the event everyone saves their best for, and there were some damn good outfits on display.

Now I love me some fashion, and after a sad day like today I need to distract myself by looking through the red carpet outfits from the 2016 Golden Globes Sunday night.

Met Ball 2015: Best & Worst Dressed

yes17

Forget the Oscars, forget the Grammys… The Met Ball is officially the biggest night on the fashion calendar because it is ALL about the red carpet. Nobody really cares about the fundraising that happens inside! So many stars attend and they go all out with the fashion and their bold choices really divide opinion. This what red carpets should be about! So much to discuss and debate over.

Horrible Bosses 2: World Premiere

IMG_20141112_154758

Tonight, the stars of Horrible Bosses 2 headed to London for the world premiere. The three guys (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) are back, but this time they are trying to be their own bosses but their investments are scuppered when the buyer (Christoph) bails on his order. So, naturally, they decide to kidnap his son (Chris Pine) to get their money back.

The three main dudes came to the premiere and they were lovely – so well-mannered, articulate and funny. Bateman seems pretty sensible, Sudeikis a total joker and charmer and Charlie is just adorable – so not THAT different from their characters in the movie.

Oscars 2014: Best Dressed

I used to do best and worst dressed at every awards ceremony but I think now I’m going to just to best dressed and celebrate the best. There were no massive faux paus (disappointing) but a lot of people played it safe. I’ve picked the ones that I think are totally stunning and glamorous.

Controversial opinions: 1) I haven’t picked Jennifer Lawrence because I thought her Dior dress was plain and I’m not a fan of peplum. I have higher expectations for her. 2) Everyone has suggested Lupita Nyong’o for best dressed but I’m not including her. I LOVED her gowns so far – particularly her SAG gown – but this did not suit her. The dress itself was gorgeous but it did not complement her because it highlighted her bony chest, which I didn’t consider a good look.

So here are my picks:

Sandra Bullock

Cate Blanchett

Margot Robbie (with new hair)

Kristen Bell

Amy Adams

Naomi Watts

And the best pregnancy style….

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde is super pregnant

I just love her so this picture makes me all gooey – it just had to be shared obviously.

She is going to be the coolest mum ever and fiance Jason Sudeikis will be an hilarious pop too. Jealous of this child!
