Carpets & Candids: Dakota’s updo

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 10, 2017 17:15:52 February 10, 2017 17:15:52

The dress is fine. I don’t want to talk about the dress. I want to talk about the hair. I don’t understand it. I don’t understand how it happened. Not, like, the mechanics of it, but how anyone could decide that THIS would be the hairstyle to show on a red carpet. Why not just a clean topknot? Why the tendrils? Why the swirl that folds into the bun? Please explain this to me, if you can. Full Article

I am pumped to write you as we expect the arrival of our third baby. We were on the unenviable infertility journey for years before we welcomed our first son, and even know as we prepare to welcome our third, it feels like a crazy miracle. Henry Clarke is our imaginative, wild child five-year-old and Jane Mary is our sassy and pink-loving (much to this mama's chagrin) two-year-old. Full Article

This silver, shimmery, fringey dress is fine. I’m more interested in her make up here: bold lip…and a pretty naked eye. There’s really not that much going on here. Maybe mascara. But definitely no liner or discernible shadow. You like it? I LOVE it.  Full Article

These pants. I need to find them. So into how they’re cut around the waist and hips. And they fall to the perfect length. I’m not crazy about a strappy booty like this (it’s so Saturday night Vegas) but I can ignore the footwear because of her perfect crisp white shirt and this coat. Full Article

Ruth Negga’s dress here is D&G. I don’t usually love black lace but the big sleeves and the drama of the whole thing is working for me. Still, without the earrings, the outfit is nothing. The green is SO sharp with her short hair and against her skin, non? My GOD she is a joy to look at. Full Article

Carpets & Candids: Gwen is red for church

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 6, 2017 17:45:01 February 6, 2017 17:45:01

I’m obsessed with this outfit. Particularly the jacket. I’d buy the jacket, maybe take a pass on the pants. This was Gwen’s church outfit. I don’t think Gwen’s ever worn the same thing twice to church. But she gets papped at church. So church is kinda like an event. And if Gwen wouldn’t wear the same thing to back to back events, why would she for church? Full Article

Carpets & Candids: Nicole’s beaded Marchesa

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 6, 2017 17:15:37 February 6, 2017 17:15:37

By Marchesa standards, this dress is relatively inoffensive. I’ve forgotten about it already. But I’m not sure we were meant to remember it anyway. Nicole has several big events coming up: Grammys (possible), BAFTAs, the Oscar nominees luncheon, and then of course the Oscars. As I say every year, the strategy is to bank the best dress for the Oscars. Full Article

Duana Names: Different Babies, Same Patterns?

Duana Posted by Duana at February 3, 2017 20:39:53 February 3, 2017 20:39:53

We're expecting a little girl in early February. We already have two boys, Emerson Rhys and Sebastian Wynn. Our last name is a double barrel, both start with B and the very last ends in "ah". We had an easy time naming the boys but we've been seriously derailed with this one. Full Article
