The Fashion Parade

As a mother of two children I do not have a lot of time to go to the movies or watch television, but I have to admit I am totally addicted to watching Red Carpet shows.  I just love to see the actors and actresses strolling down the red carpet all decked out in the most gorgeous suits, gowns and accessories.   I pop some popcorn, pour myself a glass of wine and sit back and enjoy the fashion parade.

There have been so many amazing gowns on the Red Carpet over the years. It really is impossible for me to decide which one is my absolute favorite, but there are a few that stand out in my mind.

The first is Cate Blanchett who in 2005 wore a stunning yellow one shoulder Valentino gown and carried a contrasting Valentino clutch bag.  The second would have to be Sofia Vergara at the 2011 SAG Awards who just blew me away with her royal blue Roberto Cavalli gown, Chopard Diamond Cuff and incredible Stuart Weitzman Shoes.  Another 2011  personal favorite would be when Best Actress nominee Helen Mirren wore a gorgeous silver beaded Badgley Mischka gown.  The color and style suited her perfectly and I remember thinking “wow she is absolutely glowing and I only hope to look that good when I am her age”.

I am really looking forward to the 2012 Red Carpet season. This year will be even better because my daughter will be old enough to stay up, share my bowl of popcorn and watch the fashion parade with me!
