White Rules the SAG Awards

It seems celebrities at Sunday night's SAG Awards took a page out of first lady's Michelle Obama's fashion diaries and went angelically white. Of course there were other standouts at Sunday night's award, namely Mickey Rourke in his leather get up. And many celebs rocked jewel tones, namely Frieda Pinto whose pearl blue gown was a definite winner. But my colleague Carrie Rickey and I cast our votes for the dames in sparkly white. Actresses Taraji P. Henson was cute as a button in her goddess-style Herve Leroux. Anne Hathaway was relaxed in her her jeweled Azzaro. Rosario Dawson was sexy in her slinky, fish-tailed Dolce and Gabanna and the ever disappearing Teri Hatcher was scary, yet sublime in her frothy Monique Lhuillier. Do you have a favorite gown of the evening? What do you think about the white gown trend? Will the color extend into the high school prom season? Is white the new black?

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.
