The Meh, the Weird and the Fabulous: It’s The Grammys (What Else?)

Published February 9, 2015 by The Feminist

Last night the Grammys were –as expected- not only an ode to music, but also a celebration of weird and wonderful fashion. Some outfits were –yamn!- booorrrinnnngg, others were completely bonkers and –thank God!- some were absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful.

So without further ado, I present to you the Meh, the Weird and the Fabulous!

The Meh:

Miley Cyrus shows some skin… again…

G3

Nicky Minaj… shows off her curves…and boobs… once more…

G9

Nothing we haven’t seen before.

Although I absolutely adore Beyoncé and her sense of style, her choice of dresses has been rather predictable lately.

G5

Black. Sheer. Lace. No matter how gorgeous this combo is, when you wear it all the freakin’ time, it can get quite dull, Queen Bey!

The Weird:

Madonna in Givenchy, also known as “This Is What Horror Looks Like”

G12

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but something just seems off with Katy Perry’s dress…

G11

Or maybe it’s just her purple hair that is making me hallucinate. Both are possible.

Lady Gaga:

G7

Yikes.

The Fabulous:

Gwen Stefani looks fierce and foxy in Versace

G14

Another Versace lover: Ariana Grande finally embraces her inner glamour queen and let go of the slutty teenager look. I wonder how long this is going to last though?

G15

Taylor Swift demonstrates once again that you really can’t go wrong with Elie Saab. And I luvvv how she colour blocked her shoes with her dress. Go Taylor!

G6

Iggy Azalea is elegant yet incredibly sexy in Armani Prive

G2

Rita Ora shines –both literally and figuratively- on the Grammy red carpet in this stunning Prada sparkling silver gown. Gimme Gimme!

G8

Normally, Rihanna doesn’t shy away from skin-showing, daring, provocative outfits, but let me tell you: this new, pink and puffy version of Rihanna is a true revelation!

G1

I never thought the following words would ever pass my lips: I like what Kim Kardashian is wearing.

Boom.

G10

Surely, this must mark the end of the world?

Or maybe my approval of her dress has nothing to do with Mrs. West, but everything with the gorgeous design of Jean Paul Gaultier? Yes, it’s probably the latter. Everyone – even the skankiest skank (no offence, Kim)- would look classy in Gaultier.

Phew. Thank God that’s been cleared.

And here we have Jane Fonda in Balmain.

G4

One word: WOW.

Let’s not forget that there were some fabulous men at the Grammy’s at well! Not a lot, I have to confess (most of them wore boring suits or weird gangsta outfits), but a couple of our favourite dudes opted for more class. For example the ever so cool Aloe Blacc.

(Not So) Happy New Year, Ladies! Joseph Gordon-Levitt Got Married (Bummer)!

I’m sorry to spoil the start of the new year for you like this, but the sooner we face the facts, the sooner we will be able to move on (and find yet another Hollywood stud to star in our fictional fool’s paradise).

JGL (I get to call him that, since he used to be my hypothetical husband up until Tasha McCauley crashed my dreams and ruined our lovely, albeit imaginary marriage) will never be your man. He will never be my man. He is officially off the market. Be still my pain-stricken heart.

Dear ladies and fellow members of the JGL fan club: if you feel the need to sob, drink a bottle of red wine out of utter grief or gain a couple of pounds of “Kummerspeck” (i.e. that wonderfully accurate German expression for gaining weight from emotional overeating), by all means go ahead! I totally understand.

It is indeed a cruel way to kick off 2015. Just when we thought 2015 couldn’t possibly be worse than 2014 – the horrible year in which Ryan Gosling became a father, George Clooney  got married and Benedict Cumberbatch announced his engagement –  Hollywood drops another marriage bomb. Our hopes are crushed. Our hearts are broken. But fear not, dear readers! With such a bad start, 2015 can only get better!

Right?!

Anyway, let’s start focusing on some other fancy –and single!- Hollywood dudes. Let’s find ourselves a new imaginary husband.

Hunting season has now officially been opened.

I can feel it, 2015 is going to be such fun!

PS: This doesn’t mean of course that I don’t wish them all the best in the world. Best of luck, Joseph and Tasha! We still love you!

Who Run the World? GIRLS!

Published June 5, 2014 by The Feminist

This week is one full of girl power events. Yesterday there was the Chime For Change party, to celebrate last year’s charity gig that was set up to help empower women all over the world. At the same time as Beyoncé was playing hostess, across the Atlantic they were honoring the most glamourous women at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

In short, two events that proved that women are awesome! Let’s own it, ladies!

The Chime For Change party was hosted by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini, in order to reel in more money to promote education, justice and health for women (hell yeah!). Queen Bey, as a fashionable philanthropist, donated 500,000 dollars (blimey!) and her lil’ sis’ Solange did her thing on the turntables.

chime solange

Unfortunately though, the entire purpose of the event got completely overshadowed by our desire to gossip, because it was Beyoncé and Solange’s first public appearance since  the infamous elevator incident at the Met Gala. Yessss, that incident.

Both fabulous ladies had plastered a flawless smile on their faces. Literally everyone was dying to know whether those smiles were genuine or fake. Why wasn’t Jay-Z there? Is she breaking up with Jay-Z? Is she temporarily moving in with Solange? Was the elevator incident just a publicity stunt in order to boost Solange’s popularity? So many questions, so few answers!

Gossip aside for a moment, Beyoncé looked stunning in that white jumpsuit.

chime bey

Apparently both sisters thought it might put rumours to rest to opt for similar outfits, because both Beyoncé and Solange went for plunging cleavages.

chime blake

Another attendee at the party was Black Lively. Just like Queen Bey and Solange, Blake opted for a daring cleavage but that sexy edge unfortunately isn’t enough to make us forget the downright ugly colour of the dress. I think it is supposed to be mustard yellow… or maybe mustard green?? Anyway,  after seeing that dress, there is only one place where I want to see that colour … on my plate, not on my clothes.

Meanwhile on the other side of the globe, her hubby Ryan Reynolds was present at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, where he honored Dame Helen Mirren with the prestigious “Icon” award. His introduction was surprisingly good, in contrast to his actual acting (no offence, Ryan). Ryan wittily called her the Dame of Thrones ( thumbs up for the original word play!) and later added “someone we’re absolutely desperate to get drunk with at a party”. (I’ll raise a glass to that!)

However, even though these awards were all supposed to be about Glamour, there was hardly a frock in sight that I actually thought was beautiful. They were all ranging between “meh” and “get that ugly thing out of my sight”, so unfortunately my best dressed list is rather small.

No scratch that.

It is practically non-existent.

From all the women present at the event, there were only two (two!!!!) dresses I actually genuinely liked.

Let’s start with a bang: here is Paloma Faith in a stunning, dramatic see-through gown.

And then there was Alexa Chung, looking elegant in a simple Dior Couture dress.

That’s it.

All the other dresses/sacks/giant diapers are not worth mentioning.

Luckily for me, I could drown my fashion sorrow in handsome men, because the dresses may not have been memorable, the hot dudes attending the award show were. Phew!

glamour gandy

David Gandy, as always, looks like a Greek God in a fabulous, expensive-looking suit. Seriously, do you know that brain freeze you get from eating ice-cream? Well, I get that every time I see our dearest David. He is simply too much deliciousness at once to digest.

Let’s not forget Mr. Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds: dashing as always.

So I guess you could say that the most memorable thing about this women empowerment week were the handsome men.

 Oh, the irony.

Blake Lively, Queen of Cannes: But Why Was She Even There?

Published May 21, 2014 by The Feminist

In exactly four more days, the greatest film fest of France will be over. Looking back on the past couple of days, Cannes truly has embraced its French Riviera finesse and extravagance with movie stars from all over the world graciously strolling across the red carpet.

As always, there was one star who was able to shine a little bit brighter than all the rest, and that star was Blake Lively. Not only did she show up to more than just one event and wore more than just one fabulous gown, she simply blew away the competition with her ever-present grace, charm and overwhelming beauty.

blake-lively

But… what was she actually doing there? The last time she appeared on TV or in cinema was in 2012 with Gossip Girl and the Savages. Sure, Gossip Girl was a tremendously popular show, but even the best shows have an expiration date. Moreover, her next film will be released in 2015, which isn’t exactly just around the corner.

So the question remains: what the hell was she doing there in the first place?

Time for some gossip!

Possibility nr. 1: She may be working on a very secretive project.

We all know that one year of absence on screen is like a lifetime of absence in Hollywood. So who knows, Blake might be releasing some brand new project in the very near future and is strategically trying to create some momentum around her personality. In that case, looking stunning on a red carpet is definitely the way to go.

Possibility nr. 2: She is there as L’Oreal Paris ambassador.

L’Oreal is big in Cannes, so obviously the brand needed to get some famous divas on the attendee list in order to promote their products.

Although a very good marketing trick, I do not think any woman will fall for that. Unfortunately, no matter how much L’Oreal make up we would put on our faces, we will never ever ever look like Blake. *letting out a soft sob*

Possibility nr. 3: Ryan Reynolds needs a distraction

One of the most plausible explanations for Blake’s presence could be because her hubby Ryan Reynolds is there to promote his film the Captive. Now, as a devoted wife and fashion-diva you simply cannot pass on a trip to Cannes. Flaunting beautiful designer dresses and that great body on La Croisette is something we all want to do, right?

However, Blake Lively’s presence might also be to his advantage, because his film got completely bashed in the press. So in order to shift the attention away from the bad reviews (in this case, “bad” is a euphemism for “I would rather be disemboweled with a clothes hanger than watch that movie again”) he simply had to have Blake by his side to overwhelm the press with her fabulous femme fatale-ness.

Here is what they might have been saying:

"The Captive" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Ryan: “Oh God, this is so embarrassing.  I wanna go home and order pizza.”

Blake: “Just keep smiling, dear. The press loves us. We’re wearing matching outfits!”

FRANCE-ENTERTAINMENT-CANNES-FILM-FESTIVAL

Ryan: “ I think that photographer just winked at you.”

Blake: “Why, at me? How charming! Shall I strike a pose. Blow him a kiss, maybe?”

Possibility nr. 4: It’s not Blake, it’s her clone.

Okay, so maybe I have been watching to many episodes of Orphan Black, but just think about it! What if the real Blake is locked up in a room in LA somewhere, while her evil clone is pretending to be her, just so she can wear all the fabulous clothes and sleep with Ryan Reynolds. (Don’t frown, ladies. We would all do the same if we had the chance. 😉 )

So yes, Black Lively was indeed the Queen of Cannes, but why she was actually there, no one really knows.

Obviously, I’m leaning towards option four.

How to get rid of stress in 3 easy steps: lots of Chocolate, lots of Malibu and lots of Gossip

Published November 28, 2012 by The Feminist


Stress. We all know what it feels like. Just hearing this word sends chills down my spine. We have so much to do and so little time that we simply forget to sit back and relax. When was the last time you took a half an hour bath? Or spent a day doing nothing but lying in the couch, eating cake and watching Grey’s Anatomy?

I guess it has been way too long. Luckily for all of you, I am here to do something about that! (modesty-again- is not my strongest suit 😉 ) Take some time for yourself and finally make “me-time” a reality. Just enjoy, we all know it’s one of the most important things in life.

It doesn’t really matter what stress relief methods you implement into your busy life, as long as you’re having fun!

Here are some of my favorites:
• Cook: a great person like yourself deserves great food!
• Go outside: fill your lungs with fresh air!
• Use body oil: literally soak your stress away!

However, if you don’t want to do this all on your own, you can always spend some time with your friends and have a girls night! I held one yesterday evening and it really lifted my spirits! Lots of chocolate, lots of Malibu and lots of gossip: what more could a girl ask for? 😉
