GRAMMYS 2015 Fashion Recap or What Ppl Were Wearing When the Great Beck/Beyonce War of ’15 Began

Did you watch the Grammys? I did, even though the Grammys (and Kanye) mostly just make me want to punch stuff.

The 57 Best Things About The 57th Annual Grammys

I’m always weary of fashion recapping the Grammys because these people are rockstars, and the red carpet is just an extension of their performance art. They are supposed to be insane. It’s why we love them. And it’s hard to make fun of that. But then this happens:

And I’m like, screw it. Let’s make fun of them. So here’s a short’n’sweet Grammy recap. Because I love you.

Absolute perfection. I’m not a huge Taylor Swift fan. But this dress? And those shoes? With her legs? And those earrings? It was the perfect dress for her at that moment in time. So she wins.

Hallelujah! Anna Kendrick finally owned that she is one hot mama and rocked this super sexy suit. Look at her face. LOOK AT IT. She knows.

Some might think Sia does this “for attention” but she’s the only person from this red carpet who can successfully indulge in a little Fourth Meal at Taco Bell on the way home without being recognized, so touché, Sia. Touché indeed.

Dress: good. Hair: only good when covered in an icing glaze and purchased from a vending machine during a hangover.

For someone who once wrapped herself in prosciutto like a stalk of asparagus, “Jersey mob wife” is a surprisingly boring reincarnation.

If the Grammy’s didn’t end with a choreographed prom scene/rap dance battle, then this outfit was for naught.

Jem and the Holograms realize that “rockstar” is not a sustainable career choice and are forced to seek entry-level work in a competitive job market.

(There was a time in my life when I was Jenny Lewis’ #1 swimfan, but this outfit thing is gimmicky and I hate that.)

When the staff at Good Shepherd Nursing and Independent Living Facility told Madonna her saloon stripper talent show act was “too exciting” for the other elderly residents, she took her show on the road. To the Grammys.

Golden Globes 2015 Fashion Recap or “Golden Globes and Social Justice For All”

The Golden Globes: the marriage of television and film (I say marriage because a lot of actresses showed up in bridesmaid dresses last night). As usual, the world’s greatest actors were unable to memorize the six lines required to present an award, nor did they bother to look up correct pronunciation of nominee names. And boy did everyone have a platform last night. TBH, the whole thing felt a little like more like a social justice rally than an awards show, but that’s not a bad thing, I guess?

Tina-Amy Golden Globe GIFs

Tina and Amy delivered a hilarious monologue, but were barely on stage for five minutes the rest of the show. Did anyone else think the Margaret Cho bit when on a little long? Also – if Tina and Amy really aren’t hosting next year, who wants to sign my petition to get Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader as hosts?

Golden Globes Kristen Wiig Bill Hadar

As for the red carpet: there was very little that amazed me. Not in a good way at least. There were a few amazingly bad dresses, but the whole thing felt like a bunch of women crawled out of a dark non-awards season cave and reached for the first thing their light-deprived eyes could focus on. Maybe it’s all a long con to make us ooh and ahh (OMG – my computer just autocorrected that to “pooh and agh”) over the dresses they’re saving for the Oscars? Whatever. Let’s do this.

rs_634x1024-150111154150-634-golden-globes-Julia-Goldani-Telles-.ls.11115

I’ve seriously never had to do so much Googling to figure out who wore my favorite look of the evening. Turns out, it’s Julia Goldani Telles from The Affair, a person I don’t know from a show I’ve never watched. YAY! This Carmen Marc Valvo dress is so gorgeous – the cut, the color. She reminded me of Snow White!

golden-globes-067.nocrop.w1800.h1330.2x

As usual, I uploaded all the red carpet looks and painstakingly began putting them in order from best to worst, and I was surprised (okay, not really) to find that Emma Stone’s Lavnin pants were one of my favorite looks of the night. I AM PREPARED FOR YOUR BACKLASH, PEOPLE. I know a lot of people hated the ass bow, but I don’t mind it. The rest of her look was flawless, and this was one of those outfits that ONLY Emma could pull off. This gal is on the fast track to reaching Cate Blanchett red carpet status.

rs_634x1024-150111161147-634.Ellie-Kemper-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

Elie Kemper in Naeem Khan is another prime example of when everyone else shows up in boring dresses and I love yours automatically for being different. Though I probably would’ve loved this one regardless. This is the best she’s ever looked.

golden-globes-062.nocrop.w1800.h1330.2x

I’ll admit, I’m a little obsessed with the color of Felicity Jones’ Dior dress. But not in a fashion way. In a I-want-to-paint-a-room-in-my-house-this-color way. But I loved the whole look on her. Very timeless and elegant, while still feeling new and fresh.

rs_634x1024-150111155031-634.Emily-Blunt-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

While Emily Blunt’s Michael Kors dress was sort of in the “it’s good or whatever” category, the way she styled it was everything. The turquoise earrings and bracelet, and the Grecian up-do made her look ethereal and lovely.

rs_634x1024-150111160648-634.Diane-Kruger-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

As someone who has spent at least 23% of my life trying to make my hair more voluminous, I can’t get on board with this slicked-to-the-head hairstyle. It feels harsh to me. Am I crazy? Hair aside, Diane Kreuger looked fab as usual. Silver was the color of the evening to be sure. She’s like a shiny, scary, beautiful robot from the future, who’s come to prophesize fashionable alien takeover in the year 2164.

Honorable mention to these blinding babes who all looked lovely in sparkles.

Three women looking lovely in all their Chiquita splendor:

rs_634x1024-150111153638-634-golden-globes-leslie-mann-.ls.11115

Leslie Mann wore sparkly Kaufman Franco, and I loved the green clutch and earrings.

rs_634x1024-150111154629-634.Naomi-Watts-Golden-Globes.jl.011115

Naomi Watt’s Bulgari snake necklace was a scene stealer. My only complaint about her look was that the red lip/yellow dress combo was a TOUCH Ronald McDonald. A pink or coral lip would’ve work better for me.

rs_634x1024-150111164138-634-channing-tatum-jenna-dewan

And finally, Jenna Dewan-Tatum had the unfortunate foresight to choose a Russett potato for a husband, but the fortunate foresight to wear this delightful yellow dress.

rs_634x1024-150111165150-634-golden-globes-lupita-.ls.11115

Lupita Nyong’o is essentially wearing the dress version of one of those old timey swim caps. And I don’t hate it, amazingly enough. I don’t think anyone else could’ve pulled off this Giambattista Valli dress, but totally did.

rs_634x1024-150111145805-634-golden-globes-kelly-osbourne-.ls.11115It’s like, I love it, but I hate it, because every time Kelly Osborne makes a best dressed list, her Horcruxes get stronger.

Two women who wanted to party like it’s 1999:

gwenandjen

Remember these? Gwynnie and J.Lo both wore dresses that were modern adaptations (or just sneaky throwbacks) to their infamous Y2K ensembles.

rs_634x1024-150111162250-634-golden-globes-jennifer-lopez-.ls.11115

Obviously, J.Lo has figured out that the combination of low cut, slit-to-there, smoky eye and nude lip make her the Benjamin Button of human women, so I can’t blame her for still rocking the same look 15 years later.

gwyneth-paltrow-golden-globes-2015-461379994-419x628

Gwyneth, however, has done nothing but eat kale and frown at pears for the last ten years. Her cellular makeup should actually be reducing in both age and size, Benjamin Button style. Dresses should not exist that look too small on her, but this one somehow managed to. I think it’s time Gwyneth consciously uncoupled with pink dresses forever.

golden-globes-083.nocrop.w1800.h1330.2x

I won’t lie: this dress fit like a glove and made her bod look smoking hot. But I can’t make myself love it. There’s something mall store about Versace that I just can’t get on board with. Like it’s the high design version of Express or Bebe.

rs_634x1024-150111160352-634.Jessica-Chastain-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

Speaking of Versace, here’s another one I liked but didn’t love. The thing about Versace is: you can look like a million bucks, but that million bucks was probably made through some combination of shady interactions.

rs_634x1024-150111161311-634-golden-globes-kate-beckinsale-.ls.11115

Kate Beckinsale is stepping into Claire Danes’ former throne as Queen Boring Hot. Like, yeah, she looks good but what else did you expect? And do you really care?

enhanced-23255-1421018320-15

Overall, I liked Chrissy Teigen’s dress a lot. But if I could make a note in the margin, it would be that the pelvic area kinda reminds me of granny panties. And I can’t see past granny panties. I just can’t.

Six women whose dresses were inspired by the dancing lady emoji 💃:

reddresses

And just like the dancing lady emoji, these dresses weren’t my favorite (👍, 🔪, 💸, 🍕) but they also weren’t my least favorite (🍠, 📩, 🎍, 👥).

We now interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to discuss Tina and Amy.

Were Tina and Amy part of a secret, soon-to-be-aired Project Runway challenge last night? Their dresses were sort of theme-y: Tina was always in some combination of blingy black and white, while Amy stuck to simple frocks from the blue-indigo-violet section of the rainbow:

rs_634x1024-150111155537-634-tina-fey-amy-poehler-globes

Amy’s first dress would’ve gotten a contestant kicked off the show for lack of imagination, but Tina’s dress was made by the Project Runway Hot Mess Contestant(TM) who ends up duct taping their dress together just before the model hits the runway. Tim Gunn has an oh-so-horrified hand on his chest right now.

enhanced-31599-1421032248-26

 

Their second outfits looked as if the first dresses had been deconstructed and the scraps were used to make them much more acceptable dresses. Tina’s is still a little weird, but LOADS better than before. Amy’s was her best of the evening.

amy-poehler-600x800

For their final outfit change, Tina showed up in a sort of deconstructed tuxedo that should’ve been cheesy but was totally amazing. And Amy had butterfly cleavage. Which I think pretty much just speaks for itself.

Three women who actually found a chance to wear that bridesmaid dress again:

rs_634x1024-150111155347-634.Amy-Adams-Golden-Globes.jl.011115

Of the bridesmaids in attendance, I’m giving Amy the Maid of Honor award for wearing the most flattering dress. But the color was more mother of the bride than bridesmaid, and neither of those categories are exactly sexy.

rs_634x1024-150111164424-600-golden-globes-katie-holmes-.ls.11115

 

Wrinkled satin. I can’t.

rs_634x1024-150111161911-634.Maggie-Gyllenhaal-Golden-Globes.jl.011115

And more wrinkled satin, this time in an unflattering cut and fabric that looks exactly like a set of drapes that used to hang in my grandmother’s sitting parlor.

enhanced-11406-1421021560-4

Sienna Miller’s dress was a big ole bag of blah, and while her hair and makeup were totally fab, points were deducted because at first glance I thought this was a photo of Kelly Ripa. ::shudder::

rs_634x1024-150111163227-634.Reese-Witherspoon-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

Reese Witherspoon is the red carpet equivalent of Lunesta.

rs_634x1024-150111161656-634.Kerry-Washington-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

Kerry Washington is almost always flawless from the waist up. Nay, from the knees up. But tea-length dresses make her look like a tiny fashion elf. And Kerry, you are not an elf. YOU ARE A GLADIATOR. Handle this.

rs_634x1024-150111165012-634.Jennifer-Aniston-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

I love Jennifer Aniston, but something about her style seems stuck in the early oughts. I mean, for crying out loud, the girl still wears bootcut jeans with leather belts. Like her day-to-day outfits, this dress was way 2001, even a little matronly. (Except for the moment when she ALMOST flashed everyone as she walked up the stairs to present – that was decidedly UNmatronly.)

rs_634x1024-150111162844-634.Claire-Danes-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

Maybe this dress looked divine next to your macrame plant hangers, Claire, but:

Two women who went ONE ACCESSORY TOO FAR:

George may be dreamy, but you are not an eight year old who just got asked to the ball by Disney’s Prince Charming™.

Our Wes Anderson-Inspired Couples Shower

The wedding approacheth, guys. Three weeks-ish until Aaron and I are united as one and I’m free to get fat and cut my hair off. Just kidding. Sorta. Leading up to the wedding, we’ve had a few wedding-related events, including a couples shower that our wonderful wedding party threw us. When my man of honor, Cody, and I were talking about what sort of details to include in the shower, we got a bit carried away (as we tend to do when we’re together), and we decided a Wes Anderson shower would be a fun theme that wasn’t overdone or too girly.

We had already rented the recently renovated Big Maumelle Pavilion at Pinnacle Moutain State Park, which is out in the woods near the water. Our Moonrise Kingdom-esque camp setting was good to go, albeit a little hard to find. Sorry to all our friends who got lost driving around in the woods. Oops!

Next up: props. Since my mom is currently renovating her house, canvas drop cloths were numerous and accessible, so we used them as tablecloths over the metal picnic tables. My mom also used to own a theater and still has a storage shed full of great props, so we raided her prop supplies and our houses for anything that reminded us of Wes Anderson: directors chairs, vintage suitcases, lanterns, globes.

Our centerpiece, however, was the canoe. A perfect example of why my man of honor is my man of honor. In all of our party planning brainstorming, I said it would be SO COOL if we could get a canoe to fill with ice and serve drinks out of. Cody didn’t bat an eyelash, and showed up at my house that day with a canoe strapped to his truck.

Oh hey there! As you might’ve noticed, I took a little blog break. No biggie. It’s just that owning a business + planning a wedding is way hard. PRIORITIES, y’all. I can’t guarantee that my posts will be on the regs between now and when I get home from my honeymoon, but I’ve got some good stuff to share, so let’s do this!

I love a tiny apartment. I used to live in one, remember? Tiny apartments force you to be creative with how you use your space, but you can also make a bold impact in a small space.

The Emmys 2014 or Something Something Cary Joji Fukunaga Something

Accurate portrayal of how I looked writing this fashion recap today.

Ah, the Emmys. NBC’s last ditch effort to show the world the charms of Seth Meyers. I love Seth, I do, but the jokes last night were like dad jokes from the nineties – a little corny, a little safe, VERY dated. So I’m not sure if making him the host will necessarily boost his ratings. What’s worse, Ricky Gervais, who has been a notorious past host, was maybe the funniest presenter of the night.
There weren’t many surprises: Breaking Bad won everything, Sarah Silverman was high, Julia Roberts never learned to walk properly in heels. One pleasant surprise, however, was that Cary Joji Fukunaga, the creator/director of True Detective, looks like this:
66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Press Room
The only other pleasant surprise from last night was that the red carpet was about 85% good. Maybe I’m getting soft in my old age, but I was highly impressed with the amount of pretty I saw last night. Yes, Lena Dunham completely skewed my average (we’ll get to her later), but overall, I didn’t have a whole lot of complaining to do. So my apologies if this recap feels too nice. I’ll try to make up for it next time.

Well, it’s official. I have a BIG, LESBIAN CRUSH on Lizzy Caplan, and you can put that in your Burn Book. And yes, I could fit at least seven more Mean Girls references in here, but I’ll just stop now and say what I’m thinking: she looks absolutely phenomenal.

WHO IS THIS AND WHY IS HER DRESS SO AMAZING?

No but seriously, who is this? I found the photo last night and now I can’t seem to track where it came from and I honestly don’t know who this person is.

enhanced-27274-1409003958-30

Sarah Hyland’s really had a hard time of it on the red carpet. Basically her entire life. She’s always dressed matronly or cougar-y or just plain badly, so when I saw this, I just wanted to pinch her little cheeks and gift her an inscribed copy of “Oh The Places You’ll Go” and tear up when she walks across the stage, and put a bumper sticker on my car letting everyone know that my child is a Red Carpet Honor Roll student at Hollywood High.

enhanced-1320-1409003270-1

 

This look was kind of crazy and I loved it. The styling was perfect – perfect shoes, perfect jewelry and purse – and an EXCELLENT call on hair and no necklace. Anything else would’ve competed with the dress.

enhanced-7781-1409005424-21

So I didn’t know she was pregnant until I saw this photo. Isn’t she, like, fourteen years old? Either way, best I’ve ever seen her look on the red carpet!

enhanced-15064-1409010261-1

Amy has my heart. Everything she did last night was perfection – from the moment Seth introduced her:

To when she introduced Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harralson by saying “Please welcome two gentlemen whose names are also items at marijuana dispensaries,” she is pretty much just nailing life right now. And her hair/dress combo were totally fab.

enhanced-27551-1409005152-1

 

The cast of Orange is the New Black all looked fabulous – well, almost all (I’m looking at you, Prepon) – but Laverne Cox was the winner for me. The cape was perfection, and coming off the VMAs, where she looked like THIS, I’d say she wins for the weekend.

enhanced-11430-1409016204-1

I couldn’t find a great photo of this look, but it so totally worked on her. It was swishy and modern and cool – much cooler than when she announced “The COLE-BORT Report” won then immediately rode her surfbort off stage.enhanced-8124-1409008489-1

Overall, this dress was a win for me. I’m not normally a fan of this shape, or this person, but she looks nice and if I tried to say otherwise, it would be my waist envy talking.

enhanced-11453-1409016204-1

 

I was underwhelmed by this. I can’t put my finger on why. The cut was sort of boring. Like it’s just hanging on her, and she’s not really doing anything to sell it. She’s a human clothes hanger with  a Christmas garland around her neck.

This is the only time in recent memory that Kristen Wiig didn’t wear something the color of panty hose to an awards show. It’s a vast improvement for her.

And now, a short interlude where we take a moment to remember these starlets who would’ve looked great had it not been for their bad hair. We’ll always remember you ladies!

Poor Zooey. She catches flack for always having the same bangs, but when she tries to grow them out, we hate. Her dress was perfect for her, but I think if she’s going to attempt a bangless existence, she’ll need to change something about the rest of her ‘do. That middle part is a little bit “Islands in the Stream”-era Dolly Parton, which ONLY works on Dolly Parton.

I love you, Mindy. But if me, you and Danny Castalano are ever going to succeed as a non-traditional family, you’re going to have to lose the Bump-it.

This dress was fabulous, but since no one else present at the Emmy’s had rained on hair, I imagine January Jones showed up under one of those personal pan Eeyore rain clouds.

It’s past time that Skrillex shaved head thing crawled back to the dark corner from which it came, and the only acceptable form of this haircut seen on red carpets anymore should be in the super awkward growing-out phase. But Kelly’s looks freshly shaved. And that’s disappointing.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

The cardinal rule of dressing is that you can’t mix orange and black together without looking like those nasty, wax-paper toffee candies that everyone throws away when they’re digging for the good Halloween candy.

Besides being the same sad color from head to toe, this looks like it was borrowed from the dressing room of a woman who used to be sexy sixty years ago and now clings to the Good Old Days as hard as her brittle hand bones will allow.

If you liked Amanda Peet’s dress, I’m sure my mom still has the McCall’s pattern for my 1994 Easter dress which looked almost identical to this.

Sarah Paulson either wore this monstrosity of a dress, or she wore a nice black dress and this perfectly timed photograph was taken just seconds after she spontaneously combusted.

Mayim Bialik has a Ph.D in Neuroscience, so if I knew anything about neuroscience, I’d make a neuroscience-related joke here. Something about brain failure. I don’t know, I’m feeling lazy. You do the rest.

And finally. Lena Dunham dressed as one of those Barbie doll toilet paper roll covers, only if Barbie had bad posture, no bra, and a habit for mouth breathing.

YOUR TURN! Who’d you love and who’d you hate?

Happy National S’mores Day!

I’m celebrating this holiest of holidays with a guest post on making homemade marshmallows over at Treatsie! They are really easy and about 100 times more delicious than that jet-puffed garbage you buy at grocery stores. Check out this post here.

Happy Weekend + Stella & Dot Winner!

Momofuku Milk Bar Crack Pie Recipe

Momofuku Milk Bar Crack Pie Recipe | Rosemary on the TV

If you’ve ever been to a Momofuku Milk Bar, then you know the sort of treasures to be had there. Birthday cake truffles (don’t), cereal milk ice cream (stop), compost cookies (I can’t). It is a heaven of delicious treats. And their top seller? The Crack Pie, named so because it is as addictive as a highly illegal drug. Turns out, Crack Pie ain’t hard to make. And should be a required skill considering that even those who live in NYC and have access to them can’t buy them for less than $44 a pop.

So head on over to Bourbon and Boots where my recipe is up and waiting for you.

PS. Don’t forget to enter our Stella & Dot giveaway! We’ll announce this winner tomorrow!

Life Lately (June Instagram Update)

Life Lately (June Instagram Update) | Rosemary on the TV

So this is a little late, but we’re just gonna go with it, okay? June was a pretty month in Instagrams – so colorful, thanks in part to the small fortune I spent at the farmers market last month. Arkansas produce this time of year is just too good to pass up. I also went to a going away party/fiesta for my friends Christie and Caleb, who have moved out of town. We miss them already!

{CLOSED} Stella and Dot Giveaway!

Stella and Dot GIVEAWAY!

I absolutely love the super cute, affordable jewelry and accessories from Stella & Dot. This company is great at creating both stand alone statement pieces, and pieces that can be stacked and layered and collected over time.

Stella and Dot GIVEAWAY!

I’ve considered hosting trunk shows over the years and inviting my friends to come play in all the jewelry, but it never happened. Then recently, my good friend Casie became a Stella & Dot stylist, which means I have a pretty good reason to get around to that trunk show, don’t you think?

Stella and Dot GIVEAWAY!

One of my current favorite pieces from Stella & Dot is the Renegade Cluster Bracelet, which has black diamond pave beads and gold plated crystals and can be layered with all your favorite bracelets. And lucky for you guys, sweet Casie has offered to give one of these bracelets away to a lucky Rosemary on the TV reader!
