The Passenger

After enjoying the company of my loyal pooch so much this morning on our weekly ride to the grocery, I've decided to pay homage to "The Passenger" as I've come to call him. He goes everywhere with me and sits in the passenger seat just like a human. Sadly, he doesn't get to go in most places, but he loves it anyway.

Rainy Day in L.A.

This rainy Sunday marks the semi-official start of the 2010 glam season out west, so let's have a little red carpet revelry for the Golden Globes! It's oh so easy to judge from the comfort of the leather recliner, decked out in my skinny jeans, Marmot vest, J. Crew cashmere and Fuggs (that's faux Uggs to you cave dwellers - and yes, they are my house shoes). With preliminary results now in, here are my top vote-getters for best and absolute worst:

Best-dressed Man - Jon Hamm
Sexiest. Man. Alive. Hands down. (I cannot find a photo that isn't in flash, stay tuned...)

Best-dressed Woman - Marion Cotillard
J'adore Marion et j'adore Dior.

Honorable Mentions

Emily Blunt - Her fashion education in the Devil Wears Prada is still paying off. Gorge in pink layers.
Jeanne Tripplehorn - Basic black, classic and sophisticated.

Worst-dressed Woman - Mariah Carey
I love Herve Leger as much as the next girl, but please cover your boobs. The whole mystique of the Leger dress is how bandages cover your body parts and leave a little mystery as to what's below. Ugh. (I'm not showing a picture, no one should be rewarded for that.)

Watch for spring trends to follow what you're seeing here folks - ruffles redux, jewel tones, peachy pinks and metallics will be everywhere! Use most of these with caution, please.

Lap Top Love

Whoosh...though I'm somewhat tech savvy, I am just now realizing the joy of the laptop while watching TV - how have I missed out on this for so long? While I'm sitting here loving my laptop, I figured I might as well mention a few other things to love (or at least like a lot) right now.

1. Marion Cotillard - I think I may have been one of the few who actually appreciated her Gaultier scale dress at the Oscar's, and I continue to have a girl crush. To fully understand, just go see Nine and watch her eyes. They are positively the most intriguing pair of eyes I've ever seen - so much life in there, they shine like little crystals.
2. Glitter - In any form, for makeup, decor, whatever. Also, strong mention of glitter in the song "Heads will roll" - glitter on the wet streets, glitter over everything, the glitter's all wet...Of course, Martha's elves makes the best. For eyes, Nars Cream Shadow (Corfu's in my basket).
3. 5 - Still haven't made your resolutions for 2010 and need a little nudge? This is the book for you. Read it and make your dreams come true. No, it's not magic -- but maybe you are. Happy New Year!
