A List of SAG Awards Winners 2012

“Dream big, dream fierce.” – Viola Davis, The Help

It’s an appropriate motto for The Help cast, recognized for their work as an ensemble, the top honor of the night at Sunday’s 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The awards show gives actors a chance to honor their peers in a ceremony that often (historically) sheds light on who will go home with an Oscar next month.

And features an A-list red carpet, of course …

Vintage Kathy Griffin!

But if you blink, you might miss her!

A very young Kathy Griffin got her first acting job in a White Sox commercial in the year … maybe we won’t go there.

Anyway, Kathy was a young thing and she’s only a background actress, but its always kind of fun to see where stars got their start. Check out the video (above) to watch the commercial and see if you can spot her. We won’t tell you where she is, but we’l give you a hint: she’s wearing a hat!

Happy spotting!

Color Style: How To Create a Sexy Navy Look


 

As basic as black but with a fresh-faced edge for spring, navy is the new neutral. It’s nautical by nature, but navy is as modern as can be when paired with this season’s pieces. We love it as a topper: a cardigan or a classic peacoat keeps you warm as fashion transitions into spring. We bring it to the office: a grown-up blouse or sleek dress. We take it to the weekend: a glittery flat, a striped top. And we adore it for the beach, its home sweet home, in a striped espadrille and sleek pair of shades.

Outerwear:

1. Rag & Bone Navy V-neck Cardigan ($300)
Preppy, polished, and a wardrobe staple, this Rag & Bone cardigan will take you into spring. Cute cardigan style with a boyfriend flair. Wear over anything from work week to weekend.

2. Burberry London Navy Addiscombe Double-breasted Short Coat ($1200)
It doesn’t get any better than Burberry. An investment in style, this classic peacoat features logo buttons, a slim cut with trim shoulders, and deep envelope front pockets.

Office:

3. Alice + Olivia Victoria Peplum Dress ($264)
Can’t you see Victoria Beckham or Kate Middleton working this dress? Its crisp, classic lines are made modern with its deep blue hue, exposed back zipper, and ruffled peplum. Wear it by day and work it for drinks, too.

4. Vince Night Blue Silk Top ($340)
Tuck it into a pencil skirt for work, then layer it with skinnies for weekend. This deep navy silk top works so many ways, bringing elegance to life with its clean lines. Tunic length with slightly longer back hem for bum coverage.

Weekend:

5. Rag & Bone Red/Creme Navajo Striped T-shirt ($110)
They go hand-in-hand. Few things are as classic as navy and stripes. This one gets a dose of red, too, making it an all-American t-shirt. Short, cuffed sleeves and a slimming, long length. Pair with everything from a skirt to skinnies.

6. Marc by Marc Jacobs Silver and Navy Glitter Mouse Ballerina Flats:
Weekend adorable. It’ll be hard to leave these behind come Monday, but these mouse-embellished slippers don’t have to leave your feet all weekend long. Add some sparkle to a simple pair of jeans with these glitter flats.

Beach:

7. Soludos Barca Striped Flat Espadrilles ($36)
The espadrille is everywhere this season! Summer’s take on flats, these wide blue nautical stripes belong at the beach. Comfy canvas with raffia footbed and rubber sole.

8. Tory Burch T Logo Sunglasses ($149)
Shades worthy of a celebrity. Tory Burch brings her signature style to this pair of sunglasses with enameled logo accents at temples, two-tone construction, and gradient lenses.

Get Vanessa Hudgens Boho Style

 

 
Although Vanessa is growing up, she’s sticking close to her boho roots. Youthful, yet mature, she works her signature look out for breakfast in Studio City, California. Hudgens pairs a slim, sexy pair of dark blue skinnies with a transitional chunky knit sweater, perfect for traversing the season between winter and spring. Adding a Native American-inspired statement necklace and slouchy cognac-colored boots, she tops off the entire look with an adorable beanie. The perfect look for breakfast with the ‘rents, lunch with the girls or even date night, we’re cheering on Hudgens and her boho forever vibe!

1. Heyoka Leather Turquoise Warrior Necklace ($325)
Fighting for style, this warrior-inspired necklace takes this statement look into battle and returns victorious. Pair with a sweater for now and layer over a simple maxi dress or tank into summer. Braided deerskin accentuated with turquoise and gold metal.

2. Rag& Bone Oakley Beanie ($73)
More for style than warmth, this beanie adds an adorable, easy-going vibe to your flowing locks. Wear slouchy and slightly back from your hairline to capture Vanessa’s carefree look.

3. Black Orchid Black Jewel Five Pocket Skinnies ($122)
Wardrobe staple. Wear these boho or wear them preppy, these dark denim skinnies are for every girl. A higher rise and sleek, figure-hugging shape have made these BlackOrchid’s a favorite of celebrities and fashionistas alike for their versatility of wear.

4. FryeMini Scrunch Platform Boots ($243)
Free-spirited cowgirl meets urban cowboy. These uber-chic scrunch boots are an all-time classic from an iconic brand. Wear them over skinnies or work the cowgirl look and pair with your favorite sundress and blazer. Their rich cognac leather color goes with virtually everything in your wardrobe…a favorite for years to come!

5. Free People Caldra Layer Pullover ($98)
A truly all-season piece, the open-knit sweater works on so many levels. Pair with skinnies now (a la Vanessa Hudgens), style over a maxi skirt for spring, take to the beach with cutoffs, and then wear back to high-waisted flares for fall. Ribbed hems with an intricate open knit and cropped length.

Are High Heels Bad For You and Your Health?

Carrie Bradshaw is going to be pissed.

A biochemist at the University of Finland, Dr. Neil J. Cronin, is advising women to forsake their stilettos in favor of sneakers and crocs. Why? He and his researchers have found evidence that heel wearers are jeopardizing their health in the name of fashion.

While on his coffee break, Dr. Cronin witnessed what us stiletto mavens know as a “rookie move”: a woman teetering in high heels, displaying her discomfort for all to see. The Dr. said to himself, ‘what might be happening at the muscle and tendon level?’

It wasn’t long before Dr. Cronin had filled a science lab with nine women who wore heels approximately 40 hours per week, and ten women who rarely ever slipped on a pair of Louboutins. It turns out that women who wear heels walk differently, and more dangerously, than women who wear flats, even after they’ve kicked off their fancy footwear.

“The scientists found that heel wearers moved with shorter, more forceful strides… their feet perpetually in a flexed, toes-pointed position,” writes Gretchen Reynolds of the New York Times. “As a result… they put much greater mechanical strain on their calf muscles than the control group did.” Translation: women who wear heels are bound to put extra stress on their feet and legs, causing muscle fatigue and making themselves more susceptible to injury.

But if you think switching from Atwood to Adidas now is going to help, you’re in for a rude (and potentially painful) awakening. When a woman regularly wears heels, her feet and legs become accustomed to stiletto positioning, and “any change to this default setting… could increase injury risk,” said the doctor. His advice is to start weaning yourself off high heels. “Try to remove the heels whenever possible, such as when you’re sitting at your desk.”

Are you slipping off your stilettos, or is there really no gain without a little bit of pain?

Amber Heard looked beautiful, as always, whilst gliding down the red carpet at the 2012 Directors Guild of America Awards in Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

The blonde beauty wore a Roland Mouret Grindley navy jersey dress.

Whilst the dress peeps, drapes, plunges and hugs in all the right places, it’s a tad sheer.

In some pictures you can see her underwear which is unfortunate.

Luscious locks and pretty pink lips completed her look.

Meryl Streep attended the 2012 Australian Academy Of Cinema And Television Arts Awards at Soho House on Friday evening in West Hollywood, California.

The ‘Iron Lady’ actress tends to be frustratingly inconsistent on the red carpet.

On this occasion I have no complaints as she wore a Cacharel Fall 2011 boatneck dress.

Her version has a slightly different print and a bit more coverage on the shoulders in comparison to the runway look.

This navy and floral print should be familiar to you, as Mila Kunis wore a similar version of this dress last year.

Black sheer tights, navy suede pumps and gold hooped earrings provided the finishing touches.
