Go Green


On the flight home from India I watched “The Joneses” a film starring Demi Moore and David Duchovny.  If you have never heard of it, do not feel badly, it did terrible in theaters.  Anyway, in the movie Demi Moore wears a hunter green silk dress, and pretty much since that time I have moved hunter green to the top of the list of colors I need to incorporate in my wardrobe.
Demi and I have similar skin and hair coloring and so this seemed like a good model that it would work.

It seems that I am  not the only one who saw “The Joneses”…

Obviously when Angelina wears anything beyond black or white that is a style victory, but I don’t love this dress or her hair.  The hair bothers me because frankly that’s what my hair looks like when I do a 15 minute blowdry and I feel like the Golden Globes deserve better than that.  Regarding the dress, I like the color and the shoulders were very on trend, but somehow, I feel like the waist cinching reads very 80’s and not 80’s inspired.

Mila Kunis looks sweet.  I like the hair, she’s glamorous. But, I don’t loooove it.  The dress has interesting texture, and the rumor is that it was put together 4 days prior to the show – so that is impressive, as well.  It’s just not my favorite green gown of the night.

And this is the winner!  This is the green gown that would make me a green-eyed monster.  I think Catherine Zeta Jones looks marvelous, and glamorous and old Hollywood.  The color is so deep and made richer by the unique texture of the gown.  I like how she styled her hair and makeup and kept it simple and pretty.  Also, the more I stare at the picture it reminds me of Scarlett O’Hara in the drapes, minus the finials and fringe, of course.  I love that she wore a true movie-star gown for her husband’s return to health and the stage.  Maybe the green will signify good luck!
