A “Busy” Monday

Did everyone enjoy our live feed from the Red Carpet?  Yeah, so that didn’t happen.  Long and I were both suffering from a severe case of re-entry and could barely get a text exchange going. It’s sort of like reverse PTSD. Post-Traumatic no-Stress on vacation Disorder.  Then BOOM reality. (which we are both very thankful that our realities are not so bad)  The symptoms are especially alleviated because it’s back to school Monday and ALL 87 of our children are out of the house.


2018 is our year for proper awards show coverage.

You heard it here first! (it’s also our year for biz cards)

As for last night – no one to add to my Red Carpet Hall of Fame looks.  Womp. But plenty of prettiness, nonetheless.

There was hardly any pink!  (the horror!) The one pink dress was on some E! correspondent (I think that’s who she is?)  anyways, I dig her dress.



weird pose, but again I like the dress.

Honorable mention to this class act, Isabelle Huppert.  She’s got the French accent to match that exquisite Armani Privé gown.  Elegance personified.


Long and I actually agree on our real fave of the evening. We both loved Michelle Williams (in LV, obvs)


Dress, hair, angelic face & BFF accessory, Busy Phillips – all perfection.

We are particularly smitten with their gal pal red carpet antics. And jeally belly! It would be heaven walking the red carpet with my BFF – although, there’s a slight chance we would get in a fight on way to the show and ruin each other’s perfect hair screen-shot-2016-11-23-at-8-54-51-am . . . all of out of love and sisterhood, of course.

I digress.

So these two  became besties during Dawson’s Creek (holla!) but started hitting the awards show circuit together in the early 2000s . ..

But what we truly adore about them are their bathroom selfies and late night carb sessions.  stars! they’re just like us!

Reason number 7,392 I want to be rich.  So I can eat more late night pasta in designer gowns with my besties.  You know who you are.

Smooches to M & B for cherishing their friendship – we feel lucky to witness it!


Now that I’m feeling incredibly nostalgic I will move on from the BFF love affair . . .

I’m sure your feeds are over-flowing with pics from last night (click here if not) so we are just going to visit some ALL-TIME faves, instead, with one (stunning) amendment.

Here’s the list I compiled a few years back


I have to say even I don’t agree with some of my choices.  (Gemini in the hizzy!)

I feel compelled to add Ms. Lupita Nyong’o in Prada in 2014.


This look is an absolute dream!

Her smile isn’t too shabby, either.  Simply breathtaking.

And that’s a wrap!  Sorry for the abrupt ending but I gotta go win the lottery and/or score a role in an Oscar worthy film and call my BFFs and tell them I love them.  It’s going to be a “busy” day.
