Love, love, love.
Probably the most disappointing thing for me last night during the Grammy Awards was watching Kanye West perform Only One. It actually hurt my feelings to be so bored by something he was doing (and it’s sad that, on a night when we could’ve been talking about another dope performance, we’re talking about another Yeezy rant instead). Luckily, Sia, Maddie Ziegler, and Kristen Wiig actually came through with Chandelier and delivered a performance that I couldn’t look away from. Some people who are not as obsessed with Wiig as I am did not recognize her right away (or at all), but as soon as I saw her I knew the performance was going to be hilarious and brilliant. It was. There were so many performances last night (I loved the opening with AC/DC, and the tribute to Selma at the end), but this was my favorite. Can’t wait to hear what you guys think! Did they win the night, or what?

Plus some great looks from Hannah Simone & the "HTGAWM" ladies
Y’all know I love Kerry Washington, but I have to say that I’m not always 100% sold on her red carpet choices. However, I really loved what she wore to last night’s NAACP Image Awards. All that red—agh. So gorgeous. And she was joined by Scandal co-stars Katie Lowes and Joe Morton. Some of the ladies from How To Get Away With Murder were also in attendance, along with Gabrielle Union, Tracee Ellis Ross, and a host of other big talents. But my favorite look of the night had to be (BOW DOWN Gugu Mbatha-Raw‘s. That yellow on her, and her hair up in natural curls—gorgeous! Peep the gallery for more!

Okay, I could be exaggerating. I’m sure there’s some other red carpet look somewhere that mattered this week. But I refuse to acknowledge them because the Aussies showed up and showed out at the AACTA Awards Ceremony and I only have eyes for them. Cate Blanchett wore Alexander McQueen, and I cannot deal with her. And Rose Byrne donned a Maticevski skirt and crop top that made no damn sense/all the sense in the world. Bow down to these two. And shouts out to PITNBr CeeBee for lit’rally waking me up in the middle of the night with multiple tweets about these looks, lol! (And I damn sure did get up to look at the pics, because CATE!)

A big night for "Birdman," "OITNB," and women of color
Last night I spent the evening reading, writing, and watching one of my favorite movies of all time (it was a Rust and Bone kind of night), so I missed all of the excitement from the SAG Awards. I’m a little bummed because, judging from some of the acceptance speeches I’m seeing, it looks like I missed out on a fun night. And when I went on Instagram and saw some of those red carpet looks (from the likes of Lupita Nyong’o, Camila FRIGGEN Alves, Reese Witherspoon, and others) I couldn’t help but get psyched. I won’t miss you next year, SAG Awards! Promise! So as I catch up with more YouTube clips, click inside for a list of winners! Birdman and Orange is the New Black both had a big night.
But, no really, Marion Cotillard is DIVINE
You can make fun of me all you want, but I will continue to fashion-stalk Kristen Stewart for the next 4-6 years. Or until she begins to bore me. Which right now, she isn’t. The actress attended the 2015 Critics’ Choice Awards and I barely recognized her, and I love that feeling. I also enjoy the feeling of familiarity—i.e. Marion Cotillard looking like a god. Which she did, in Christian Dior Couture. Love. Love. Love. Peep the gallery for more!

Also, there were some great acceptance speeches
One reason I scramble to see a bunch of movies at the end of the year is so that I can try to make sense of awards season. I still haven’t seen some of the big winners from last night, and many of the nominees, but I was happy to see that some personal favorites well-deserved recognition. Boyhood and Transparent were two productions that moved me in big ways, so congrats to them, and to all of the winners! Also, I think Showtime’s The Affair really came through and surprised everyone.

Come ON, Jessica.
My biggest beef with Jessica Chastain is that she completely distracted me from Kerry Washington tonight. I was posting a photo of Kerry hitting the Golden Globes red carpet on my Facebook, when I saw someone else had posted one of Chastain. It was distracting…ly flawless. Damn you, Chastain. You win, again. And again. My other favorites from the red carpet—and there are many—include Kate Hudson, Salma Hayek, Chrissy Teigen, Diane Kruger (OMG the slayage), and Helen Mirren. Helen Mirren on the red carpet is definitely one of my favorite things in life. Peep the gallery for more!
P.S. I’m torn… but I kind of like Zosia Mamet‘s look too. Your thoughts???
