Rooney Mara's Black Nini Ricci Was Awesome

The Twitter world disagreed with me, but I liked Rooney Mara's black Nina Ricci. In fact, I liked all of this year's Golden Globe attendees who erred on the side of noir because the detailing was nothing short of amazing. Mila Kunis' wore a one-shouldered black dress. and Kate Winslet was quite striking in her black on white gown with jeweled belt. But back to Mara's dress, it featured a deep V - which was one of the Globes' runaway fashion trends - and a geometric bodice with square cut outs. Her simple ponytail worked well. It was a different kind of red carpet dress for a different kind of actress.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
