the oscars, silent but deadly.

the oscars. you met and surpassed all my expectations. first off, cirque du soleil, WOW. incredible. words can’t describe how amazing that performance was. if you haven’t seen it, well you are in luck, i added the video at the bottom of this post. highlights of the night: the dictator, aka sacha baron coen spilling an urn all over ryan seacrest, which completely made my night. except for the fact that ryan then decided to let every single person who he had to interview after the incident know about what happen and how he had pancake mix all over himself. i find that man extremely annoying, but on a positive note, emma stone is probably the cutest thing ever. i am obsessed with her and her quirky facial expressions! congrats to the artist, an amazing movie that deserved every award that it won. although, most of the movies that were nominated (at least the 5 that I saw, deserved some kind of award… i hate to see the faces of the people who don’t win, it just breaks my heart). so congrats jean dujadrin for winning, and staring in the first silent film to win an award since the 1920’s. (and how can you not love him, he was so cute and happy during his speech!)

oh yeah, lets talk about how 85% of the women who attended this 84th Academy Awards completely blew me away with their dresses, their flawless makeup and the gorgeous men who accompanied them, this award show would have to go down as a success in my book.

BEST DRESSED

i can confidently say that there were more best dressed than worst dressed, and it was very hard to pick just one BEST dressed. i would like to add that the ladies of comedy ( Tina Fey, Kristen Wigg, Emma Stone, Anna Faris) did an exceptional job. round of applause please… with that said, my best dressed would have to go to maria menounos

of course those were just my favorites, there were plenty of other ladies and men who blew me away, but just didn’t make the cut.

who was your best dressed? worst? favorite part of the oscars? LET A SISTA KNOW!

the girl with the stupid tattoo

just when i thought people can’t get any dumber, i am proven wrong. it baffles me how far some people go for attention, unless it’s not attention that they are seeking and they are just plain stupid. i might be a little late on discussing the issue at hand, but i just have to! who in their right mind would tattoo someone’s name on their forehead let alone a rappers. it’s times like these when i wish i could have been there minutes before to ask her “what the f*ck are you thinking?!” i can’t help but wonder if she did this to get attention from drake. well obviously she did, but couldn’t she do it the old school, let me just wait outside his house until he comes out tactic instead? for one, she wouldn’t be walking around with a tattoo that says drake on her forehead, that i am pretty sure she will regret doing in about six months when drake goes back to school at degrassi, and is no longer weezy’s booty partner. tattoos are forever, but a criminal record can always be expunged – just saying.

so when drake found out about the idiotic tattoo, he didn’t keep quiet.. he had this to say:

“I want to meet her and understand what happened. That’s cool though, I feel you 100%, that to me is absolutely incredible.

The guy who tatted is a f*cking as*hole though, I will tell you that,” he said. “I don’t f*ck with that guy. F*ck you to that tat artist by the way. And you should lose your job and should never do tattoos again and I don’t f*ck with you. And if I ever see you, I’m a f*ck you up.”

he wants to understand what happened. hey drake, ill throw a few options your way. a. she was on some serious drugs. b. it was a dare. c. she is like your biggest fan like EVERRRRR. all these are probable choices, but i am going to have to go w. option a. it also seems as though drake is a little upset that someone would do this. HOW COULD THEY! i on the other hand would feel quite flattered if i saw my name across someones forehead (although, i did see my name used as a tramp stamp – it’s not a forehead but i did feel a tid bit special.) now we just have to sit back and wait for the next stupid thing to come our way, and i am pretty sure we won’t have to wait that long.

quack. quack.

before i start bashing, i shall admit… i have done it. i put my head down in shame, but i am guilty of doing the…. duck face. *gasp* i know, how can you continue reading this post after knowing that embarrassing information about me! i will say it was not my proudest moment but after a few drinks my lips cant help but form the duck face. in all honesty, i thought i had started it ;p

for those who don’t know what i am talking about do it with me. push your mouth out, kinda as if you were about to give a kiss buuut not quite. duck face offenders think it gives off the illusion of big luscious lips, an awesome jawline and cheekbones a model would kill for. what you really look like, is a moron. no you don’t look sexy, no you don’t look cute, you look stupid. of course, this face would be perfect if we still thought it was cool / liked  had myspace, but we all use facebook now so we have to be mature and just defualt pictures where we look our absolute best (thankkkk you photoshop).

it cracks me up that there has been a song, numerous websites dedicated to this phenomenon and a vast amount of anti duck face sites.  wait wait wait, us normal folks aren’t the only ones who’ve subjected ourselves to the face, Christina Aguilar has been spotted, as well as Kendra Wilkinson, Beyonce, Kim K. and pretty much any other celebrity between the age of 15 and 59. For more celebs, visit here.

so should this trend continue? or do we need to stop it dead in its tracks? personally, i think it is funny and probably wont stop anytime soon, at least not when you mix a camera and alcohol into the equation.

of course i can’t leave you without showing some of my FAVORITE duck face offenders. please don’t kill me!

oh i’ll cry you a river

today, i heard the worst news i have heard in a long time. my soon to be husband is marrying another woman! justin timberlake “supposedly” is going to put a ring on jessica biels finger. this can’t be happening! i was supposed to marry him! since fourth grade, i have been writing mrs. timberlake on all my papers, and today i find this out. GET OUTTA HERE! stupid jessica biel is tired of being a bridesmaid and they are now talking wedding plans. really jessica, that sounds like a personal problem to me.

and if that news wasn’t devistating enough, my baby boo britney spears is getting hitched as well. listen up justin, if you arent marrying me, the least you can do is get back with brit! make all of our dreams come true, then you guys can go back to wearing those cute matching jean outfits and calling eachother by those cute little nicknames – pinky and stinky!

guys, I have a question for you. Why do you think it is okay to still rock ed hardy, infliction or tap out shirts? A word from the wise, they aren’t cool, they look stupid and you come off as a complete douche. If the Situation is your style icon, then please never leave your house again. So toss out those shirts and throw on a v neck, a stripped tank, or even a clown suit because honestly, anything is better than looking like you just stepped out of the jersey shore.

straight from the horses mouth:

“No matter what T-shirt you select, whether it’s fitted, graphic, sequined, bedazzled, crew-neck, deep-V, wifebeater, or what-have-you…  I wear what makes me feel good because I’m at the tip of the spear—the cutting edge of fashion that’s fresh to death. When I see something I like, I grab it. My only system when I shop for fresh apparel is my own primal reaction to what I see, the moment I see it. When I enter a store, I trust my eye to zero in on what’s mint. That’s the single most effective system I have for knowing when to pull the trigger on a purchase.  I walk away from the rack because I’ve failed to make a connection to those threads. On the other hand, if I know from the moment I see it that that particular piece is going to make me look awesome, I trust my instinct completely and it comes home with The Sitch.”

             – the king douche himself, the situation.

men should not wear ANYTHING bedazzled or sequenced, EVER. clearly, if you are following fashion advice from someone who calls themselves The Sitch, and decides what to wear on his own primal reaction, then youre a douche and please stop reading this. 😉

advice from the eyes of a judgmental girl.

i have been harassed by some of my guy friends (won’t name names) urging me to continue writing posts directed to them… so I am going to cater to their needs, because lets face it, some need it way more than us ladies.

one item that should be in every guys closet is a pair of khaki straight-leg jeans. yes, this means buying a pair of jeans that actually fit you and if you want to be daring, wait for it.. add a belt!  khaki jeans are so versatile, they can be worn to work, football games, out on a date, and if done right, even for a night out on the town. how to make it work? oh now that is the easy part. lets start with a basic shirt, you can pair it with a v-neck shirt (which I am sure, as a guy you must own at least one in every color) or even a plaid button down works too – tucked in! you can pair khaki pants with a white button down, and add a skinny tie to spiffy it up a little. If all else fails, just stalk Justin Timberlake to get an idea of how a man is supposed to look in a pair of khakis. and if you are worried you wont look manly, get over it.

JT with the always beautiful Mila Kunis

and if i could have things my way, this is how all men would look, and dress.

just a little tip. khaki goes with pretty much every color, so there really is no possible way you can mess up, I promise.

i’ll fight this to my death..

lately it has been a topic of conversation, at least among my friends.. “does black and brown go together.” of course i might fuel this argument and bring it up every chance i get but it is a topic i am very passionate about.  with that said, i think black and brown DO go together. my favorite combination is wearing black bottoms with this tanish/brown belt i have (pictured below) matched with tan flats/wedges. i think i look fab, others, (louis) thinks that is a fashion no no. so who would i rather trust, myself, who knows what i am talking about, or my fashionably conscious gay? i think ill go with myself.

so instead of arguing about if they mesh well (haha, i learned that phrase from “clueless”) i am going to show you how it is done properly and how to do it properly, then you can come up with your own conclusion.

to begin, remember that neutrals go with everything. basically, you can wear black with anything, brown with anything.. so why not together? exactly. (one point for me).

next, when using a lighter shade of brown (like my belt) it is easy to do the whole black and brown outfit. taupe and nude also make a nice contrast with black.

note, this next one is for the bold, and the confident. if you are not quite sure you can rock brown and black then i suggest you just skip this one. (KIDDING). chocolate brown and black. this is a hard task and i suggest you approach with ease, but if you can pull it off, i suggest you do it, cause hunny it looks GOOD. (kudos to you mom, who loves wearing a dark brown with black, .. she even brought it up in an argument the other day when i was fighting this topic with some friends).

if you are trying to mix a black shirt and brown shoes, then you better make sure you are wearing DARK bottoms because it does not look good with light colored jeans. it actually looks as if you are missing something, like black shoes for instance. adding color or a pattern to the mix definitely helps. leopard, is probably the easiest pattern to pull off when you want to mix brown and black.

i am simply suggesting trying this out. be open minded. but if you look like you dressed yourself in the dark, don’t blame it on me.

my brown belt that i am completely obsessed with:

.

celebs who pull it off:get the look:

ryan gosling; for those who haven’t seen crazy. stupid. love. that sexy hunk, whom i would like for him to be referred to as my future husband pulls off the brown and black look in the movie. (i saw it last night, so this was the last straw that made me have to post about this topic.)

that’s right boys, it is possible to look this good, and dress this impressive.

okay so i think i just heard the best news of my whole entire life.. okay well maybe that is a little drastic but i did hear some great news. teen nick is going to start playing all the shows from the 90’s. i don’t even know how to contain myself.  but of course it is after midnight so this is where my good friend, i would like to call my DVR will kick in. and by 90’s shows i mean doug and the rugrats –  and no not the all grown up episodes they play now, i am talking about the real deal.. the terrible graphics, rude angelica and of course phil and lil’s lesbian mom.

golden globes, who actually has fashion sense?

The Golden Globes, where dreams are made (and crushed), where the beautiful, the rich and the famous gather to witness what movie/television show/actor/actress was essentially the critics choice for the past year. Lets not forget… who wore what! (i am getting giddy just thinking about it)

I don’t know if I should start with my favorites or the dresses that literally made my eyes hurt! (what were their publicists, managers, agents, FASHION CONSULTANTS thinking?)

drum roll please…. first dress up, Lea Michele, who wore a pink Oscar de la Renta gown… i give it two thumbs down… WAAAAY down. Those ruffles do not work, and definitely do not flatter. NEXT…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh Xtina… what happened? You look like a buffalo wearing lace. Seriously, this is terrible. I am all for a voluptuous woman, but my god… TERRIBLE.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

30 Rock star Jane Krakowski rocked her belly beautifuly. The Badgley Mischka gown fits her remarkably. Best dressed prego goes to Jane!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

January Jones literally left me speechless. The way this Versace dress fits her, it makes her look like a classic beauty. Absolutely gorgeous!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Julianne Moore, what exactly where you going for when you put this on?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sandra Bullock, you never disappoint me. This Jenny Packham dress makes her look faboosh, and her hair just adds to the look. Two thumbs up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mila Kunis is no longer in the 70’s. This one-shouldered Vera Wang gown is exquisite. Other stars such as Angelina Jolie, and Catherine Zeta Jones also wore green… but Ms.Kunis wore it best.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not only does Dianna Agron, know how to sing, but apparently she also knows what a beautiful and classic gown looks like. Definitely top 3.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My disappoint, Kelly Osbourne. It is as if she she been taking a few steps forward, and now took a giant leap backwards. Really Kelly, what were you thinking?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GLITTERRRR! I am absolutely in love with this dress! Olivia Wilde in Marchesa is definitely in my top 3! I want this dress, her bangs and of course her Christian Louboutin heels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have to disagree with most blogs I have read about who wore what at the Golden Globes. I think Leighton Meester’s dress is perfect. Her whole outfit. From her purse, to her hair, to her subtle make up, she looks flawless.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

andd…. the winner for best dressed goes too……

ANNE HATHAWAY who lately has become such a style icon! She wore an Armani Privé gown that flatters her perfectly. Wow. I just don’t even have words for this dress… absolutely breathtaking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Helena Boham Carter takes the cake for worst dress. Her dress kind of reminds me of what we used to wear in high school during spirit week, you know for mismatched day. When you just throw on about 16 different articles of clothing and PURPOSELY make sure none of them match. Yeah, that is kind what I feel is going on here… but whatever it is that Helena is trying to do, it is not working. Please redirect yourself to the nearest exit and don’t come back til you can at least match your shoes… or brush your hair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know I didnt add everyone, just a few that stood out. What do you think? Who wore it best? Who wore it worst? Let me know!

antoine dodson, from rags to riches.

“He’s climbing in your windows, he’s snatchin your people up – tryna rape em so y’all need to hide your kids, hide your wife…” If you haven’t watched this YouTube video, seen the Halloween costume or heard the musical remix (which made it to Billboard Top 100 list) then you are hiding under a HUGE rock.

Antoine Dodson – a YouTube LEGEND, an internet sensation and a household name. Dodson can thank his fame to an interview he had with a local television station. He was being interviewed because of a home intrusion and attempted rape of his sister.  After the interview was uploaded to YouTube, like wild fire, it spread to more than 26 million computer screens.

The success of the video, led the Gregory Brothers to turn the video into an auto-tuned song called the “Bed Intruder Song” (yeah real creative huh?). The song made its way to the top of the iTunes chart (and of course number 89 on Billboard’s Hot 100). If that’s not ridiculous enough, Hayley Williams of Paramore, Jordan Pundik of New Found Glory and Ethan Luck of Relient K made a punk rock cover of the song.

Dodson’s website asks for donations to assist his family in moving “out of the hood”, (which i would assume they have done,  with the success of both the song AND the video). Money made from the “Bed Intruder Song” is also going to a foundation that has been setup for juvenile diabetes – a disease both his mother and sister had. By September 2010, the Gregory Brothers reported that they had sold more than 100,000 copies of the song on iTunes.

The Bed Intruder Song was the most viewed YouTube video of 2010, it was chosen as the “Meme of the Year” in the 2010 Urlies – both as the People’s Choice and the Editors’ Choice – while the original video of Dodson’s television interview was the “Video of the Year” – People’s Choice. (thank you Wikipedia)

… and now! Dodson went onto the Lopez Tonight and performed with comedian Kelly Pryce their new anti-Kris Kringle anthem, “Chimney Intruder” (just know, sequels are never as good as an original).

I think it is pretty surreal how things are now a days. A simple video added to an online site can ultimately change your whole life. I wonder whats next, I’ve already seen a talking lizard, scarlet taking a tumble and of course the kid getting hit by an ice cream truck. Who will be the next YouTube superstar? Bring it 2011, I am ready!
