Mad Men in Rolling Stone

After checking Twitter for the billionth time when I'm supposed to be working, I found this little gem on Popeater.com : 

Of course, I had to go look at Rolling Stone to see all of the other amazing behind-the-scene photos that will be featured in the upcoming issue. Not only do the photos look great, but the black and white exposure makes them look super vintage. Check out some of the photos:

2010 Fall Must-Haves

For me, Fall is start of a new 'year'. It's a new cycle of seasons --yes, I can now say I know what ALL seasons feel like-- new fashions and new goals. As much as I love summer now because it only lasts a few months (as opposed to the 10 months of heat back home), I enjoy putting away all the shorts and t-shirts for sweaters and more cozy clothing. When you go shopping in fall, there is so much to choose from! Glamour magazine has made it easy to pick wardrobe items that are not only stylish now, but will be affordable and wearable for a few months to come. These styles are easy to find anywhere, so no matter what your budget is there is something for you.

Here are Fall Must Have Styles from Glamour Magazine:

Camel Coats

Skinny Cargo Pants

Flat Boots

Chunky Sweaters

Flared Jeans

Military Jackets

Faux Fur

Blouses with Bow Accent

Knee High Socks

Mini Heels

Emmy Awards 2010

So the 2010 Emmy Awards finished up and I just spent a whopping 6 hours watching TV. No problemo though, because tonight is also Sunday and I refuse to go to bed without watching Mad Men! haha Before I turn over to my favorite AMC show, here is a recap of the red carpet arrivals and a couple entertaining points in the show..in case you didn't bother to watch. 

Red Carpet

Some Faves: 

Claire Danes in Giorgio Armani Prive

Dianna Agron in Carolina Herrera 

Eva Longoria Parker in Robert Rodriguez

Kelly Osbourne in Tony Ward

Jessalyn Gilsig in Nicole Miller

January Jones in Atelier Versace

Katrina Bowden in BCBG Max Azria

Elizabeth Moss in Donna Karan

My Not so Faves: 

Keri Russell in Jean Louis Scherrer

Emily Blunt in Christian Dior

Kyra Sedgwick in Monique Lhuillier

Heidi Klum in Marchesa

Christina Hendricks in Zac Posen
(For the record, I think this color looks AMAZING on her, I am just not in love with the shape or design)

Toni Collette in Valentino 

While there were a few amazing dresses in colorful hues, it was clearly a night of Black & White:

I think Jimmy Fallon did a good job hosting this year, and the opening was pretty funny and amazing. Here it is in case you missed it!

Then there was a funny Modern Family clip..starring George Clooney:

All in all, the show was pretty good..very little surprises though. Here's hoping Jon Hamm or Michael C. Hall wins a Golden Globe for Best Actor!!! 

In case you missed the award show, you can find the complete list of winners HERE

Emmy Gown Predictions

I've been looking forward to tomorrow for a few weeks now..because it's time for the Emmy Awards! I typically start watching early in the day, waiting to see my favorite stars and the gowns they choose. Of course, I am looking forward to seeing the cast of my fave shows-- Dexter, Mad Men and House-- and I'm pretty sure the girls of Mad Men will NOT disappoint with their gown choices. There are always a few surprises, which is half the fun of watching red carpet arrivals. While the wardrobe choices are usually a secret up until the day of the event, InStyle has made a few style predictions as to what certain stars might be wearing. Are they going to be right? Check back here tomorrow evening for my recap of red carpet fashions...or hits and misses! 

January Jones: Atelier Versace

Lea Michele: Zac Posen

Sofia Vergara: Gucci

Christina Hendricks: Christian Dior

Jane Lynch: Oscar de la Renta

Kyra Sedgwick: L'Wren Scott

Julianna Margulies: Elie Saab

Anne Hathaway: Marchesa

Wow. All I can say is if half the stars show up in these dresses, there will be some amazing red carpet moments. After plenty of years watching, however, I know there will be a few thinking outside the box--which may or may not work out! :)
