2010 Emmy Red Carpet looks


Continuing with my theme of red carpet posts from various awards shows, I hereby give you some of the 2010 Emmy red carpet looks! I did not watch the Emmy’s, as I have no cable and couldn’t care less about shows like this anyway, but I LOVE checking out what the stars wore, how they styled their hair, and what major trends were for all of it.

What do you think?

Inspired by: Olivia Wilde


Actress Olivia Wilde is my inspiration today!

She is stunning. Heartbreakingly so, even. Her pale green eyes are mesmerizing, she has a body TO DIE FOR, and on top of all of the other great things about her, she’s a freaking PRINCESS! Now, please tell me how that came about, because not every girl gets to grow up and actually embody the little girl fantasies every other one of us has, but never get. Tao Ruspoli, her Italian prince of a husband, makes films and they live a very bohemian life in Venice Beach, CA. What a life those two have.

Olivia is inspiration because she once won a pancake eating contest, eating 33 pancakes in 20 minutes- because people said a girl could never enter the contest- and she won.

She is a fitness inspiration for me as well. To work off those pancakes, she takes regular spinning classes, practices yoga (who in Hollywood doesn’t?), dabbles in karate and hikes. Of course she is paid to look fabulous, and probably works out with a trainer and nutritionist along with her above activity, but it’s awesome nonetheless to see that her activities are so achievable. Heck, I can take a spin class at any of the local 24 hour fitness locations practically any time of day. I respect that she and Tao have banned the word “fat” from their home, if they eat too much, they say they are “clogged up”. Interesting approach.

I also love the smart vivacious doctor she plays on House, Dr. Remi Hadley, or more often known as Thirteen. I’m so glad Olivia is on network TV!

She has been tweeting about her charity work in Haiti, ¬†through Artists for Peace and Justice. I like seeing Hollywood giving back, both of their money and their time. It’s one thing to throw money at a problem, but those who give their time are actually walking the talk.

I hope Olivia Wilde can be your inspiration today as well!

Inspired by: Marie Antoinette


I’m not sure why, but the other day, I could not stop thinking about Marie Antoinette, the Sophia Coppola film with Kirsten Dunst.

I dragged Billy along to the theater to see this film when it came out in 2006, and I was disappointed at the time by the film itself, but my oh my, the fashion! The Hair! The Makeup! The Colors! The Desserts! It was a feast for the eyes, and I am now reliving the beauty, years later, and it is way better the second time around! I borrowed the DVD from my local library, and really paid attention to the details, the story line, the costuming, hair and makeup. It really is a nice film, but such a tragic story for Marie. I would hate to be married off to a man I’ve never met, taken to a foreign country, stripped of all my earthly possessions because they do not belong in the new court, live in a loveless marriage for years, criticized, watched, made into a new person, all to fit a model of what someone else thinks is right for the Queen of France.

I loved the food in this film! So. many. desserts. YUM!

Oh the sparkles! Oh the fun!

The makeup and hair were stunning! Look at this, gorgeous!

Oh, la la!

I think I am going to dress as Marie Antoinette for Halloween this year. What? It’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween! It’s my favorite time of the year (Autumn), and I love candy, dressing up, and fun parties!
