And The Oscar Goes To…

Robin 2

Robin Roberts

Happy Monday Dahhlings!  Here are my personal highlights from last nights Academy Awards Ceremony.

I loved, loved Robin Robert’s dress, the stunning blue, which absolutely complimented her skin tone, and the ethereal glow, which I felt surrounded her.  Robin looked truly beautiful.  After everything she has been through with her health in the past year, she has shown that you truly can get through anything, and come out the other side… Shining!

Shirley Bassey

My heart swelled with pride when fellow Brit, Dame Shirley Bassey, graced the stage with one of her most famous songs “Gold Finger” from the James Bond movie of the same name, starring Sean Connery, released back in 1964.  Dame Shirley looked as fabulous tonight at 76 as she did back them, her pipes still as strong as ever.  Ms. Bassey received a standing ovation, which was richly deserved.

Charlize Theron

Another highlight for me was Ms. Charlize Thereon, with her short pixie haircut {channeling Mia Farrow} and elegant white Dior gown. To me she look graceful, chic and all around beautiful.  I think short hair becomes her.

Jennifer Hudson

And of course there was Ms. Jennifer Hudson with the Dream Girls classic “You’re Gonna Love Me“.  As always, Ms. Hudson sung with everything she had, to full effect.  I’m still amazed that this young woman did not win American Idol in the year she participated.  The good thing is, this was her springboard to fame and ultimately an Academy Award her first time out.

Adele belted out the theme song from “Skyfall”, scoring an Oscar for best original song while she was at it.  My other fellow Brit looked beautiful, her make up, immaculate as always.  I love Adele, she is such a down to earth Londoner, no airs and graces, what you see is what you get.

barbra-streisand

Last but not least, the incomparable Ms. Barbara Streisand sang the beautiful song “The Way We Were”  in memory of those who passed away within the film industry last year.  That particular song always moves me.

I thought I’d finished editing this post last night, when who should appear on my TV screen, but FLOTUS herself, making a surprise appearance looking stunning as always to help present the best picture award with Jack Nicolson. The woman is simply gorgeous!

These were my personal highlights of the evening.  Have yourselves a Beautiful, Fabulous and Amazing Monday… See you on the other side, and remember to…

Love yourself again

Leave Adele Alone…

In Daily Musings on February 10, 2012 at 1:28 pm

I know I said I had a deadline, but this came across one of my news feeds and I  just had to ask…

Why is everyone so pressed regarding Adele’s weight? Is it because she is not the so-called perfect size 0-4? I think she looks beautiful and she knows how to dress herself and look fantastic as well as fabulous.  If she’s happy with how she looks then what’s the problem?  I love this quote from her in an interview with People Magazine “I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that“.  Here’s another quote from her which will be in this weeks issue of People “I haven’t felt insecure about my figure.  I wasn’t brought up like that”. My question is… Why does she have to explain herself? I don’t see anyone questioning Giselle about her size (the Brazilian model, married to Tom Brady for those of you who don’t know whom I’m referring to).

 I’ve been reading for some time, how she has a beautiful voice, beautiful face, but she needs to lose weight.  Doesn’t that sound like a back-handed compliment to you?? It does to me.  I’ve read some nasty comments on Twitter and other social media sites, from people who I feel have their own personal body issues to deal with.  As far as I’m concerned she’s beautiful, talented, confident, successful, nominated for a Grammy (or Grammies) and… Getting Paid!!! So leave her alone.  Just yesterday Karl Largerfeld gave his 2 cents, saying she had a pretty face, but she’s a “little too fat”! only to have to turn around less than 24 hours later and apologize and tell the world he’s a huge fan. He now says his comment was taken out of context.  Like I said before, leave her alone!  Adele has no desire to be a size zero, so again I say… LEAVE HER ALONE! Love you Adele!

Watch Adele live at the Grammys on Sunday February 12th.  BTW: Click on Adele’s name above (in orange) to see a trailer of her live at The Royal Albert Hall in London.

Remember, women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes, it’s all about how you carry yourself, how you feel about yourself, it’s about CONFIDENCE!!! Work it!

     

A quick capture of Adele  having a little fun! it’s on a repetitive loop, but it’s cute anyway.  http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lz07ksWVri1qfqf4lo5_r2_250.gif
