Marvellous, Mediocre & Meh at the 2014 Golden Globes

Although I might be a bit late with an update of the Golden Globes that were held this past weekend, I did laugh seeing Mnet broadcasting messages throughout the weekend to watch them live at 3am on MONDAY morning (late afternoon/evening in Beverley Hills)…. I can think of better things to do at a time like that, sleep is most definitely the best option and that is what I was doing.

I can’t bring myself to watch these award shows they are always so long winded but I do take a guilty pleasure in looking at the beautiful people, some wearing attire with a certain ‘it’ factor and others wearing things that look like they got dressed in the dark…

Marvellous

Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale Golden Globes

This lady literally radiates from the red carpet, shining bright in her dress which has a gorgeous silver bustier top and thigh skimming maxi skirt with a mermaid tail which was adorned with rhinestones and which resulted in the dress glowing in the lights of the carpet. Kate’s face was left fairly toned down which complimented a messy-but-perfect updo and her look was finished off with Jimmy Choo shoes and an Edie Parker clutch in black.

Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Golden Globes

I cannot believe it, but Taylor Swift looks amazing to me. Normally I don’t pay a second glance to her but she ticked all the boxes for the Golden Globes ceremony from  her toned down makeup with a bright red lip or her simple but striking Carolina Herrera dress, paired with Christian Louboutin shoes, Jimmy Choo clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery I cannot fault her look.

Red Square have gone Digital

Hiya Poutlings <33

RED SQUARE

Red Square – famously part of the Edgars group has finally launched an online store where you can get some of your favourite beauty and perfume brands online! They have also stated that they will offer a “free” sampling programme, simply put that when you order online you can choose three sample items to try, at no additional cost. It sounds very Rubybox-esque but it sounds good to me.

Red Square have also taken into account that we, beauty bloggers as a whole are quite loud and proud about our purchases and that we want to share our product experience and knowledge with people on the web, be it via social media, blogging or review sites, and have catered for this on their website providing the opportunity for the consumers to post comments, make recommendations or even give advice about the products on offer in order to strive for consumers to make more informed choices….

The goodies you buy from Red Square can also be gift wrapped with a personalised message on the card…. this sounds like it could be an absolute save for last minute birthday or anniversary presents for the men out there 😉 Look out for perfume-presents, ladies!

Orders over R350 have free delivery, any order under that amount would be subject to an additional R45 on your purchase price. Payments can be made via credit card, or any Edgars or Jet account. HELLO 6 MONTHS INTEREST FREE CREDIT.

I’m really loving the fact that they have finally launched in the correct direction, local South African online stores will most definitely soar over the next few years but I am suprised that they did not think to do this previously…. The website on a whole, is a bit boring for a company with such an established brand however it is still early days and they may actually liven it up a bit.

It however amazing that we can now shop these amazing brands online without having to pay for parking. The brands on offer include (the links are to our previous articles on the brand/person): Antonio Banderas, Avril Lavigne, Azzaro, Beautique, Britney Spears, Burberry, Bvlgari, Cacharel, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, Chloe, Christina Aguilera, CK One Color, Clarins, Davidoff, Diesel, Dolce & Gabana, Dunhill, Elie Saab, Elizabeth Arden, Elizabeth Taylor, Escada, Estee Lauder, Ferrari, Filorga, Giorgio Armani, Gosh, Gucci, Hugo Boss, I Love…, Imedeen, Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jennifer Lopez, Jimmy Choo, Joop!, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, L’Oreal Paris, Lacoste, Lancome, Lanvin, Madonna, Marc Jacobs, Montblanc, Nails Inc., Narciso Rodriguez, Nine West, Paco Rabanne, Placecol, Puma, Quorum, Ralph Lauren, Revlon, Rihanna, Roberto Cavalli, Shakira, Swarovski, Taylor Swift, Ted Lapidus, Thierry Mugler, Trind, Usher, Valentino, Van Cleef & Arpels, Versace, Viktor & Rolf and last but not least Yves Saint Laurent.

I’ll be sure to let you know about any of my purchase experiences from Red Square and how the service is versus the service in the actual shops! Last time I visited Johannesburg, I had superb service at the Sandton City store!

Are you going to check out Red Square online?

Be sure to let me know your experiences, if they are before mine!

Style Watch : Adele

adele style

At a glance, its hard to recognise an awkward 20 year old back in 2008 when she got a chance to record her first ever album, is in fact, the powerful women that Adele is today.

Adele-style

Now, Adele is turning 25 is very well known not only in her home country but all across the world, for her powerful voice and distinguishable style.

adele - brit awards

She recorded her first album in 2008, which was entitled simply “19” and that was the time she started to appear in the public eye a lot. That is when her style preferences began to emerge, The shy girl in the formless clothes started to appear at events, such as the Brit Awards (where she won the Critics’ Choice Award), H&M Regent street store, London and Shepherds Bush Empire, London. coming to more feminine pieces, her body also began to change.

Adele-styleee

In 2009, she wears a chartreuse satin coat by Barbara Tfank, to attend the 51st Annual Grammy Awards, Los Angeles. She looks confident in that bright outfit. Then again she has shown up in public wearing Barbara Tfank, this time it was a custom made black-satin dress.

Adele-style2

AdeleIn 2010 her style started to resemble her current look, as she appeared in a vintage black and gold brocade dress at the CMT Artists of the Year awards in Franklin, Tenessee. As time passed, her style progresses and in 2011, we saw her wearing a Burberry dress at the MTV Video Music Awards, where she won three awards. She once confessed to US Vogue that:

“From twelve to thirteen I was a grunger. then I got really into R&B and became a rude girl – in Addidas, with a spit curl… and tiny Nike backpacks.”

So, having this as a background, it is really weird to relate to that girl in Nikes to the woman, Adele is nowadays. Because today she is more likely to be seen “with her favourite Jimmy Choo Rosabel bag, or in Vivienne Westwood or Aquascutum, although she still confesses to loving Marks and Spencer jeans”, as mentioned by Vogue UK.

Adelegrammy

Now finally, into the previous year of 2012, she has appeared looking rather slim comparing to her previous looks wearing custom made Giorgio Armani sequin gown, accessorised with a Harry Winston ring, De Beers earrings and Christian Loubutin heels during the Grammy Awards, where she won six awards! At the latest Golden Globe awards, which had been her first public appearance since giving birth to her son, Adele was wearing Burberry. Certainly, we see there is something different about her now, as she has shared her beauty and talent with the world.

So, what do you think – has her style evolved?
