GUCCI GUCCI

The title flashed before my eyes every time a picture of slippers or loafers or the newer obsession turned into t-shirt mania popped out of Instagram. Drafting for this kind of piece could, actually, turn into a two years occupation. Oh, the year of 2015.  (more…)

A Va-Va-Voom Dress For A Va-Va-Voom Girl

“Golden Globes” passed, but the Internet is still high for Meryl Streep’s speech and the gowns that flowed all over the place on all sorts of lists. Having seen the same outfits for so many times through news feeds here and there, I can’t help but think, in the back of my mind, of two gowns in particular.

The first one is right on my favourites list from the 74th annual. It’s true that I love both the actress and the dress, so when watching the Globes and seeing them both in the same place, I thought of a match made in heaven.

It’s Felicity Jones in a Gucci dress.

Shortly after, Zoe Saldana showed up in a Gucci dress also and although I was dying for the dress and I happen to like Zoe too, I said sadly to myself “mnope“, without giving too much thought to it at the time. It was tough. It is a Gucci dress we’re talking here about.

We have two beautiful dresses, two beautiful actresses, impeccable make-ups, smiles also.

Yet?

This is a case of two gorgeous women who wear gorgeous dresses, but who still don’t (quite) make it onto the “best dressed list”. Not that this would be the goal in life, but there was a red carpet in the pictures above, so there most certainly was a “list”.

Yet?

The dresses didn’t match the personalities. It were the dresses that wore the celebrities, not the celebrities that wore the dresses. The dresses were the celebrities. Gucci dresses are celebrities by definition. Through colours, cut, fabrics, ruffles, playfulness, bliss. This is it! Bliss! A.k.a. “a state of perfect happiness, oblivious of everything else”.

Therefore, a va-va-voom dress, like Gucci dresses are, e.g., once dressed, must be assumed. Understood. Furthermore, felt. Once dressed, the dress becomes the best friend of the one wearing it. Whom she laughs, dances, dedicates songs with on the dance floor/red carpet, whom she confesses to, who she drinks champagne, sings, have fun (in) with.

And this is how clothes become so much more than just clothes.

The most important thing, though, is for both the woman and the dress to “love” both fashion and a little bit of craziness at the same time. Better yet! To enjoy the chemistry in between.

Chemistry… Here comes the answer to the question from the back of my mind above. There’s no chemistry. Everything beautifully by the book, but no chemistry.

There has to be one between the wearer and the whatever garment.

Especially when the garment is a va-va-voom one.

Just like in life.

H2O, anyone?

Below are some happy formulas of Gucci dresses. They below must have liked it at school.

Golden Globes 2017. The Ladies. The Gowns.

 

“This is live from the red carpet. Making magic. Making memes. Making moments.”, says E!Entertainment’s promo every 10 minutes, as watching live from the red carpet.

So this is me awing as seen below at the glamour and talent being awarded tonight, at the 74th Golden Globe Awards.

Let’s get this party started.

Claire Foy. The cut, the posture, the easy up-do, the sequins (of course!). And her performance in “The Crown”, because sometimes talent is expressed through attitude and style. Though pictures, other times, aren’t. Claire shines, I’m telling you.

Sienna Miller. Writing and deleting, writing and deleting. Trying to find the right words. Warming up here. Here we go.

It is a Michael Kors gown, it is totally a Sienna gown. The negligent pony tail tied up with a slick black tie. The pearls along with the tiny sequins on the dress? Daring, but Sienna. And best of all: feeling good with her whole va-va-voom. It’s her, it’s not just Golden Globes.

Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton and a chocker that seems made from the same tie as Sienna’s hair tie. Which not only looks so cool, but also is so cool because you can really wear this tie as a hair tie, but also as a chocker. And this is how you wear a chocker.

Ruth Negga in Louis Vuitton. “Rrr” comes to mind and “rrr” my fingers type.

Natalie Portman in Prada. Splendid Prada. Though the colour wasn’t the greatest one on her, Natalie shined so hard, that the dress was one thing and Natalie was another. Both beautiful.

Emma Stone in Valentino. She is a star and she wears stars while elbow hustling her brother during interview for E!. Nice!

Annette Bening. Everything.

Olivia Culpo in Zuhair Murad. Why so moody, you’re on the best list, girl.

Felicity Jones in Gucci

Tracee Ellis Ross. The styling and attitude. Wink.

Teresa Palmer in Armani Privé. No muss, no fuss, just elegant and smooth. Operator.

Caitriona Balf in Delpozo

Was there any dress code stating deep (the deepest one could find) v-neck? As seeing them on the red carpet, I looked for one on the internet, but couldn’t find one. It must be the birth of a trend. Ta-da!

Pretty much yellow going on, but this isn’t really a surprise since yellow is one of the upcoming Spring, everybody.

Viola Davis

Kerry Washington in Dolce & Gabbana

Maise Williams

Reese Witherspoon

Winona Ryder was so sweet and genuine that her Viktor & Rolf dress could have been any dress, she would have still made you want to kiss her. She has her own category. The Winona.

But then there were the sequinned and the embellished. Man, us girls love the sparkle!

Amy Adams in Tom Ford
