Not a lot of Best this time around, sadly, but no especially spectacular horrors either. The reviews )

Not the most stellar year for fashion: I could have included even more ugly/questionable gowns, and there were enough bad looks to group into a few different categories! On to the review )

Not a lot of stellar looks on the Tony Awards red carpet. The report )

I can't remember a red carpet with so many near-misses or outright misses and so few impressive numbers. Reviews )

It's the most wonderful time of the year: kicking off the award red carpet season The Golden Globes )

The Logie Awards are Australia TV awards that are presented by TV Week magazine. They're kind of a cross between TV industry awards and People's Choice awards because some are fan awards and some are juried. Luckily for this fashion report, the gowns were equally a mix of professional and amateur :-> The report )

Sorry I'm a little late with this but we were traveling while the show was on. This report is unfortunately totally dependent on photos online - I haven't had a chance to watch the show yet. The report )

Now that we know the results for Game of Thrones at the Emmy Awards (yay for Peter Dinklage winning but boo for not acknowledging the great character [livejournal.com profile] grrm created), it's time to get down to the other important aspect of the evening The fashion )

Before we proceed to the fashion part of the program, a word about the ceremony, which I very much enjoyed watching. The BBC featured some weird camera angles when trying to jazz up the church coverage but I forgave them when they showed some clips from this 1923 newsreel footage of the wedding of the Duke of York and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (the current Queen's mother). I thought the Bishop of London's homily went on a little long but the bride's brother did a great job reading the lesson. And I could listen to the men/boys choir for hours…

However, turns out the best moment at the Abbey happened directly afterward, as shown in this video of a verger doing cartwheels up the aisle after the successful ceremony. And to give the Abbey its due, they're not disavowing all knowledge of his actions: "Our view is that the verger was simply reflecting what we all feel about a very successful service. It is a general reflection of the mood of the Abbey and a job well done." Onward to the fashion! )

The fashion this year at the Golden Globes was a higher standard then usual, which is great for viewers but not so great for snarky reviewers. (My headachy day didn't help so I'm afraid there's a dearth of clever comparisons this year around - sorry about that.) The report )

Due to a birthday dinner I was unable to watch the Brownlow arrivals life but as I was too full to go to sleep right away, I stayed up to bring you a fashion report based on online photos. The report )

Unfortunately, because it was in the middle of the day here, I missed the Tony Award ceremony. However, I've scoured the net for you, my public, so I could still do a fashion report roundup )

I keep being afraid that Australian red carpet walkers will discover stylists and ruin my fun but so far, so good :-> Judgment time )
