(L to R: Hailee Steinfeld in Prada, Jennifer Lawrence in Oscar de la Renta)
Whatever its reputation may be, the Golden Globes’ red carpet has become crowded with more and more standard award-show looks in recent years. This year’s offering, other than Helena Bonham Carter’s Swan-dress-esque Vivienne Westwood dress topped off with mismatched shoes, was far more notable for Ricky Gervais’ mischievous turn as host than any of its all-around blah fashion. Last night’s SAG awards, however, had far more to offer. Perhaps because the focus is all on the actors at this soiree, there were several notable risks that paid off greatly. First, and perhaps best, was newcomer Hailee Steinfeld, who’s been lucky enough to not only be a preternaturally composed 14-year-old, but also be nominated for an Oscar for her very first movie role in True Grit. She surprised in a Prada look from the bold Spring 2011 ready-to-wear collection. To the Golden Globes, she wore a beautiful if less flashy Prabal Gurung dress. Props are in order to the girl’s stylist. She manages to look improbably cool and age-appropriate without succumbing to the Dakota Fanning or Abigail Breslin cutesy method.

Most people posted their new years resolutions about two weeks ago, but we’ve taken the fashionably late route as to not overwhelm the reader. You’re welcome. I can’t remember whether I’ve mentioned this in the past (not like anyone else would) but when my dear friend Joey and I started this blog way back when, we had a dream. And through the ups and downs, we have never lost sight of that dream. One part of that was to create an online store to sell jewelry, accessories, and eventually clothing. This past year the store finally became a reality! Sales on the other hand did not… This year, we’re resolving to change that. Just you wait and see…
What about you? Any big dreams you’re hoping to finally accomplish? Resolutions you’ve already had to revise? Spam? Anything?
