Downton Abbey

16 Jul

I recently have fallen madly in love with the British drama, ‘Downton Abbey.’

Preview of the series:

I would love to go into detail about the plot of the show, costumes, and all the characters, but at the moment I am simply going to focus on a few images I have come across. One of my favorite story lines is that between the characters of Mary and Matthew. Throughout seasons 1 and 2, the audience is put through the “will they, won’t they” scenario. I of course was rooting for them all throughout! Here are some photo shoot images done for a magazine with actors Michelle Dockery and Dan Stevens, which are simply divine!!

Dan Stevens as Matthew Crawley is such a dreamboat!

I also love this image from Vogue UK last year featuring the Crawley sisters from the show:

I will leave you with footage from ‘Downton Abbey’ featuring the fantastic one-liners delivered by Dame Maggie Smith. She is hysterical!

I cannot wait until ‘Downton Abbey’ season 3! It premieres in the UK this September, but sadly not until January 2013 in the US.

What They Wore: Golden Globes 2012

15 Jan

Earlier this evening, the 2012 Golden Globe awards were held here in Southern California at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. It was a star studded and fashionable event for Hollywood. A huge trend seen on the red carpet was blush tone dresses with a romantic feel, which I absolutely adore! It sure was a great night for fashion.

My pick for best dressed female is Charlize Theron, who wore a GORGEOUS Dior gown.

My pick for best dressed male is Adam Levine in Tom Ford, but he can do no wrong in my book!

Here are some of the fabulous fashions that stood out to me at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards:

Happy 100th Birthday Lucy!

6 Aug

Today marks the birthday of Hollywood legend Lucille Ball. She was born in 1911, meaning she would have been 100 years old on this very day! Life.com has released exclusive, unpublished photographs of the woman we all knew and loved as Lucy Ricardo on the classic TV sitcom I Love Lucy (1951-1957). Below are two of my favorite photographs from LIFE:

Lucille in 1942, prior to I Love Lucy:

Team Adam Wins ‘The Voice’!

29 Jun

Congratulations to Team Adam Levine & the winner himself Javier Colon!!!

He definitely deserved to win! I do love all 4 of the artists, however. I love how invested the coaches were in their teams! Can’t wait for Season 2 this coming Winter 2012 on NBC! 🙂 I hopefully will be attending a taping or 2 then as well 🙂 Congrats again to Javier Colon and his coach Adam Levine!! (My favorites all along!) Below are some of my favorite moments from tonight’s finale.

Top 2 awaiting the final results!

Adam & Blake were so nervous when it got down to Dia and Javier!

At the edge of his seat waiting for the result!

Another GREAT moment from tonight’s finale show: Javier Colon performs one of my favorite songs “Landslide” with Stevie Nicks! They were fantastic together.

I also just love how Adam was so moved (to tears!) by the performance. So sweet!

I also have to say that I did love Dia’s performance with the lovely Miranda Lambert! One of my favorite songs: “The House That Built Me.” SO touching when Blake tells Dia she is family to him! 🙂

Congratulations again Team Adam!

‘The Voice’ Finale! Live Taping :)

29 Jun

I had such a great time last night when I attended ‘The Voice’ performance show live finale at Warner Bros studios in Burbank, CA! I think all final 4 artists are fantastic and will be successful after the show, but I have to say I am Team Adam all the way! Javier Colon is a brilliant musician, and he seems to be such a great person as well from what has been told on ‘The Voice.’ I loved being in the studio live, because the energy and excitement of the crowd, coaches, and artists was out of this world. Below are my favorite performances from last night’s show! Vote for Javier! (Until 10am 6/29/11). The finale airs on NBC tonight at 8PM.
