Chanel Perfection

{Oh, you like my dress? This lil ole thing?}

I cannot get enough of Blake Lively’s outfit. She wore it to the dinner that Chanel hosted for her (oh yeah, no big deal, just going to some dinner organized by Chanel, the sole purpose of which is to honor me) on Wednesday night at La Grenouille. I love how the structural shape of the dress, especially in the shoulders, contrasts so well with the flowy add-ons (which I’m not generally a fan of). LOVE the stripes. Her ballet-shoe-inspired Christian Loubs go perfectly with the getup, and of course, the icing on the cake, her matching Chanel bowling bag in iridescent calfskin from the spring-summer 2011 collection. The pop of color in her earrings, her casually swept up hair… This outfit is perfection.

Pure. Unadulterated. Chanel. perfection.

While I’m totally envious of Blake’s gig as the new face of Chanel (hello, free bags!), I’m more jealous that she got to make cake pops with Bakerella.

Really, Natalie?

Natalie Portman, so not tickling my fancy.

I know this post comes almost two weeks too late, but I still want to share my thoughts on the topic. Natalie Portman won the Golden Globe for Best Actress two Sundays ago, and gave a really awkward speech with a really awkward laugh. I’m not sure if they were side effects of her knocked-up-ness, because the behavior didn’t seem typical of her Harvard-educated (did she graduate?) self. But that’s not what bothered me the most. It was her [Viktor & Rolf] dress. It was disgusting. Sure, she’s pregnant, but does that mean that she needed to wear a pale pink sack with a glorified applique on it? And what was up with the french twist hairdo? Did she also become a 50-year-old politician? And – I’ll stop with the criticisms after this – when did her arms become tiny little stumps? It’s been very frustrating to see her on the “best dressed” lists since the show, so I had to give my two cents. Phew. That feels better.
