So much to say, and so little space.
I'm not going to say anything bad about the things I don't like.
Ill fitting garments, side boob's, sloppy boobies, and bottom's that should have been wearing spanks.
Not because their shape is not nice, but because under certain fabrics you need to look
Not going to say anything about messy and un-finished looking hair.
Even though braids are sooooo in right now, I find them a little casual for a white tie affair.
(Tuxedo is not "Optional" when White Tie is expected)
I feel that there are four things that make the look.
Since I have styled for the red carpet before.
And this IS the biggest red carpet event!
Let's Talk Hair/ and Oscar style
You have to have the garment FIT
It has to be the right COLOR for you.
Your HAIR should fit the style and outfit.
And you should be properly ACCESSORIZED.
My Fav's were Kerry Washington, Lady Gaga and Tina Fey
I loved Jennifer Garners dress and Charlize Therons, Julianne Moore,
and Cate Blanchett
However, Julianne Moore since she is a red head, the black wore her a little, although I love Chanel, if it were navy, SHE would have worn IT. Keep in mind I didn't see it in person. I couldn't tell what color the beading was, and up close it could have softened the black. I'm limited to my Samsung TV
And Cate, if you are not 6 feet tall, willowy, and fair that dress would not have worked, but it did.
I liked Brie Larson's gown too!
The two couples that I thought were stunning….. Liev Schreiber and his wife Naomi and Sly and his wife Jennifer.
Beautiful,seamless, and elegant. Maybe their relationships are that way too!!!
Not enough room for the men, let me just say that Kevin Hart always makes me smile!!!
Remember every day can be a beautiful one!

I've decided to do a different post this week on account of the Oscar
After all, it is the Super Bowl of Fashion and Hair!
So I felt compelled to address this issue.
A little background on me.
I am Jewish and my parents were Holocaust survivors so I tend to
have very strong political feelings.
I did not grow up in a typical American household, and English was my parents
I was so INCENSED when in 1985 the Color Purple did not win ONE oscar.
I walked out of that theatre in Campbell California and the first thought I had was OSCAR!
I did not watch the Academy Awards the following year.
Why was I the only one that was so shocked and horrified?
I felt like I was in an alternate universe.
I feel that this issue is not as simple as who see's what and how many.
Things need to change from the bottom up. Meaning, the foundation. (Just like a good haircut!)
The people who vote and are members of the Academy should look like our population…..
the United Colors of Benetonn.
I do feel that things will change with our next generation and the next generation of the voters in the Academy.
When I talk about this issue with my friends/clients, I always say at least Shondra Rhimes owns the night!
Well one night and it's Thursday! Ha!
That wouldn't have happened in 1985, and thank you Shondra for your amazing talent and courage.
Now lets talk hair …..about Shondra's Thursday night!
In "Scandal" the women own the night with their hair, and did you know that Mellie's hair is two wigs sewn together!
Ahh it's a southern masterpiece!
But I have to say that on "How to Get Away with Murder" all the flash goes to the young men!
Anyway I wish this controversial issue would unite people instead of widen the gap.
I'll be watching for my homework.
And I'll let you know what I think (Regarding the Hair of course!)
I feel very fortunate to have grown up and live in the Silicon Valley.
Very diverse and I love it this way.
Remember, everyday can be a Beautiful one.
All of you who love entertainment know about Netflix…..
Is a four part Docu Series on some very serious subjects.
But the Chelsea we all know and love has an amazing way of bringing it all to the surface.
With fun and grace and... her clever wit.
She turns some introspective and and sensative subjects into something
we examine out loud.
And find value in, but can't help laughing out loud when it touches a nerve with in ourselves!
Ok lets talk HAIR
For the past 12 months the Bob has been BACK with a bang in hollywood. (Pun intended)
In the form of these two very important words.
Layered and Textured.
Jennifer Lawrence started it and it just keeps going and going.
BTW Jennifer has already moved on to something new! Ha!
But now everyone from Todd Chrisley's Daughter to yes
Chelsea and her good friend Mary have jumped on the new bob band wagon.
The staying part (Pun intended)
Is the way this Hairstyle looks good on so many facial types and ages.
The key here is to make sure it is brushing the shoulders, above the shoulders it can take a very bad turn depending on the shape of your face and the length and width of your neck.
Remember, every day can be a beautiful one!
