The MTV Video Music Awards are tonight, so I was inspired to dig these out. I went to the #vmas from 1999 through 2003.

This story is giving me LIFE, as the kids say today! On Sunday, Taylor Swift wore a white, cut-out jumpsuit to the Billboard Music Awards, and retailer Nasty Gal proudly claimed credit for it, as one does when a celebrity wears one’s designs. View image | gettyimages.com Too bad it wasn’t a Nasty Gal piece […]

I didn’t get around to finishing my Oscar posts in a timely way, but it’s never too late to talk about jewelry and men’s fashion, right? Anyway, it’s Throwback Thursday so I’m going to go there. My favorite piece of jewelry at the 2015 Oscars was the Piaget ear cuff and matching stud worn by […]

Damn! Where was Moonstruck-era Cher when I needed her on Oscar night? For that matter, where was Rihanna? Bad Gal RiRi’s puffy, pink Giambattista Valli gown made a huge impression at the Grammys earlier this month, but it would have been the obvious winner of my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award on […]

When wig-loving, face-hiding singer Sia hit the Grammy red carpet a short while ago with a supersized hairpiece and a matching child dancer in tow, I knew my search was over. Sia is the winner of my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award for the 2015 Grammy Awards. View image | gettyimages.com As […]

The Screen Actors Guild Awards took place last night in Los Angeles, and the only thing that matters is that Joan Collins was there. Obviously, she gets my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award because no one can compete with Alexis Morell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan. I’m surprised that the other celebrities didn’t […]

The humdrum fashion at Sunday’s Golden Globes — everyone wore red! silver! cut-out white gowns! — caused me to pay more and more attention to a Progresso Light commercial I kept seeing that night. In it, a woman is pleasantly surprised by the rich taste of her low-calorie soup. She’s watching her diet because she […]

While watching the Golden Globes last night, I was captivated by Jane Fonda. Jane presented the award for Best Actor in a Comedy alongside her 9 to 5 partner-in-crime, Lily Tomlin (I wished Dolly Parton had joined them!). I enjoyed the Jane-Lily banter. Jane said, “You know, it’s nice — it’s nice — that men, […]

It was a close race this year, but my highly coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award for this year’s Golden Globes goes to … Melissa McCarthy, in a menswear-influenced ensemble that she pulled together from her own closet.
