The Emmy’s and Michelle Pfeiffer

I watched the red carpet arrivals at last night’s Emmy Awards just in time to see the ageless beauty, Michelle Pfeiffer. I haven’t seen Michelle Pfeiffer in a while, and she made a stunning return. At 59, she was inspiring, looking very soft and elegant in a gossamer Oscar de la Renta dress – and very much herself. It was my favorite look of the evening.

How A Dress Goes From Runway to Red Carpet

From the point where a designer comes up with the idea for a dress to the place where you see it on the red carpet is a huge journey, with so many steps.” ~ Celebrity stylist, Anita Patrickson

Here is a fun behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of Los Angeles celebrity stylist, Anita Patricksonvia Popsugar. “You’re creating a story for a snapshot moment,” says Patrickson, who herself, has her own story. Born on a farm in South Africa, the world of fashion styling was far from the one she knew. But she she grew up a stylist in the making, dreaming up outfits and fashion scenarios as a child. Patrickson eventually came to the United States via London. Not knowing anyone, she applied for a stylist assistant position in LA via Craig’s List – and the rest is history.

The first step of the journey to select the perfect outfit, begins with New York Fashion Week. That is where a celebrity stylist can review the designer collections, and make selections for her clients, before any one else even sets eyes on them. Patrickson views each celebrity body type individually, which is why she inspires such trust from her clients; celebrities like Hillary Duff, Chrissy Teigan, and Julianne Hough.

Once the celebrity decides on a look, alterations are done immediately to get the outfit “red carpet ready.”  On that big day, the celebrity walks the red carpet, the cameras flash, the look is revealed, and that is it. Afterward, the outfit is never seen again on the red carpet.

I often wonder what it is really like to be a celebrity stylist. I see now that many elements go into creating that one glimpse on the red carpet. Oh, but what a glimpse it is!

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler return as hosts for The Golden Globes

January marks the beginning of Awards Season and just confirmed: they have rolled out the red carpet for my all-time favorite awards show, The Golden Globes (airing this Sunday). Unlike the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes features actors and categories from both film and television. And of course, I love watching those red carpet arrivals and the gowns! For the third year, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be the hosts, and they have delighted me with their bright humor and glowing charm. Let the Award Games Begin!

tony     adjective \ˈtō-nē\

: very expensive and fashionable
:  marked by an aristocratic or high-toned manner or style
As I watched The Tony Awards last night, I wondered who would take the toniest Tony Award for fashion. It was clear as soon as I saw Leighton Meester (who is currently starring on Broadway’s Of Mice and Men) that she earned the coveted award. Simple and chic in white, with her soft hair and no-nonsense makeup, Leigton Meester looked so elegant, so understated, so … what is the word? Yes, so tony!
