I have to be honest, I was thisclose to making today’s post another gift guide. Why? Well walking through Times Square and Bryant Park on Tuesday night one of my best guy friends shocked me by letting me know that he read all five of my gift guide posts from last week! Really? I asked quizzically and when he commented that he did not agree with my dad about the Black and Decker batter charger and that nothing on my gift guide for the impossible to buy for would work for his Mom, I knew he was telling the truth. Thanks, Chris, even if the only time in the past two years you have ready my blog was when you had insomnia.
I must say, after covering gift ideas your best friend, the foodie, the hostess, the guys, the impossible to buy for, and the Secret Santa there are still a dozen categories I missed. If I had the patience and the will power (and I did not think you all would get bored and leave to me making collages for eternity) I could have done a gift guide post for every day of December, instead of only the first five days. With almost 100 gift ideas what did I miss? Ideas for the gym buff, the neat freak, and the book nerd to name a few!
I decided, however, enough with presents and after a few visits to the Yahoo! Style page I found their TrevorLive Red Carpet post I started thinking about one of my favorite things to write about – red carpet fashion. After Wednesday’s SAG Award nominations I started thinking about the beginning of the new year and all of the glamorous dresses that are sure to appear on the red carpet at my favorite award shows. If you did not see my post on Facebook last week, Pantone announced that Marsala is their 2015 color of the year, after Radiant Orchid last year and Emerald in 2013:
And as long as we are talking about predictions for the Awards – I think Eddie Redmayne will take home all of the pretty statues for his leading role in the Theory of Everything. I saw the movie a few weeks ago and honestly, he was brilliant. His portrayal of Stephen Hawking was bar none and he deserves every accolade under the sun for any award with a category like or “Best Actor – Leading Role” or “Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role”.
What do you think the biggest red carpet trend of 2015 will be?
