Every week at okmagazine.com, accomplished designer Malan Breton takes a look back at the week in fashion — the Do’s, the Don’ts and everything in between! Join Malan and OK! for Fashion Fridays!
Pop! Fizz! Glamour! As I write this I am sipping a glass of Moet after a long day of taping.
OMD’s! (Oh My Darlings!) It’s the end of one of the most important weeks in red carpet fashion, and the beginning of the most glamourous! One that brings us more jewels, and couture then the world has ever seen.
With the Golden Globes this Sunday, Hollywood is buzzing with pre-Globe glamour.
Now darlings, I love a nice draped and ruffled dress, they are actually my signature. BUT! When it makes you look 60 years your senior, Sophia Bush, it is no longer chic! Darling Brittany Snow looks like she dressed for the Sigma something toga party. Glamour goes out the window and we are left with nothing but a piece of folded fabric! OMD!
Thank goodness for style mavens who take a simple glimpse in the mirror, et viola! Kathy Griffin, the funniest lady in Hollywood, whose alleged favourite topic of conversation is… style, and of course herself, is one of those. She is a demure bronze flower, a lady! Like a ginger Audrey Hepburn, she radiates style… and the shoes, Stunning!
How beautiful is Sara Rue? Darling, I think inset blocking in dresses is very modern and chic, but when it appears you are offering directions to Rue Madeleine, arrowed insets are no longer stylish. I wonder if her dress can offer directions to the nearest parking garage?
I applaud Zoe Saldana for looking utterly fantastic, the style winner of the night!
Darlings! Jane Lynch happens to be one of my favourite actresses in the world, but! Can someone please let her know Elvis called and would like his blazer back, this outfit screams lounge lizard, even down to taxi — pointed stilleto, circa 1998.
Then there were the men, one in particular, my friend, Zac Efron. Thank you for showing us that casual can be stylish and chic. Your cashmere jumper and stunning boucle trouser exemplify modern male style. BRAVO! I like the short hair as well!
The Green Hornet, a much awaited cinematic piece of genius, has just been released in theatres! Let’s discuss the premieres red carpet choices for Cameron Diaz and the rest!
Actually, to preserve the well dressed reputation of two of my favourite people, I think I am going to skip this one, OMD’s! A stylist should never let her client leave the house appearing like she had her dress made by a veterinarian and not a fashion designer! Especially when she is one of the most beautiful women in the world. OMD!
Speaking of red dresses! Rachel McAdams is a delight in this ode to the great goddess of glamour, STUNNING!
It appears the beautiful Michelle Williams has found her signature silhouette. She looks stunning in this multi-textured number. That resembles her premiere dress and the London red ensemble she wore a few weeks back. Sometimes when you open your closet and everything looks the same, it makes life a breeze. Simple and chic!
My favourite Hollywood twosome as we speak are Natalie Portman and Darren Aronofsky, they personify glamour, brilliance, and a new era of Hollywood chic! Natalie appears to be wearing vintage YSL, So chic!
Well darlings, we close the week with… the sweater dress, and in camel no less! Jessica Simpson, how we love you, but camel-coloured sweater dresses with necklines that make a lady look like she is suffering from whiplash. No matter how comfortable, should only be worn in the privacy of ones home. Am I wrong?
Well darlings until next week! I wish you Love and Glamour!
