Style Highlights From The Oscars 2016!

Style was on the agenda as usual at the recent Oscars. Below I have compiled the style highlights from the night so let’s take a look back at some of the style winners:

Female Style

Saoirse Ronan


Looking stunning on the night in this dark green sequinned gown by Calvin Klein was Saoirse Ronan who was nominated at the awards for Best Actress for her role in Brooklyn.

Whoopi Goldberg


Whoopi Goldberg looked amazing on the night in this wonderful gothic-style gown.

Alicia Vikander


Winner of Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Danish Girl, Alicia Vikander looked amazing in this light yellow gown for her big win.


Brie Larson

88th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Winner of Best Actress on the night for her role in Room, Brie Larson looked fabulous for her big win in this dark blue gown by Gucci.


Male Style

Jared Leto


The always stylish Jared Leto looked brilliant on the night in Gucci.

Kevin Hart


Kevin Hart looked amazing on the night in this wonderfully glitzy jacket.

Sam Smith

Winner of Best Original Song with Jimmy Napes on the night for Writing’s On The Wall from Spectre, Sam Smith looked very dapper for his performance and for their big win as did Jimmy Napes too. His speech which he dedicated to the LGBT community worldwide was lovely even if part of it was a bit inaccurate. Go Sam!


Chris Rock

Host Chris Rock looked amazing for his presenting duties on the night. On another note I absolutely loved the way he confronted the issue of there been no black actors and actresses nominated in the main categories with amazing humour. Go Chris!






Best Style From The Golden Globes!



The Golden Globes took place recently and as always was a night brimming with fashion as well as movie wins. Below is my favourite outfits from one of the highlights on the fashion and movie calenders:


Female Style

Brie Larson


Winner of Best Actress on the night for her role in Room Brie Larson looked amazing in this golden, sequinned gown with beautifully matched long, flowing earrings.


Viola Davis


I loved Viola’s Davis’ red gown on the night. I love the sparkles at the top and the fabric is wonderfully luxurious.

Alicia Vikander

73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Nominated for Best Actress on the night for her role in The Danish Girl, Alicia Vikander looked stunning in this understated, beautiful gown.

Lupita Nyong’o


I have always loved Lupita Nyong’o’s style and her outfit on the night was yet another fashion success. There is a wonderful hippie quality to the dress which is always brilliant and her bag matches beautifully with her dress. One of my three favourite outfits on the night.

Saoirse Ronan


Our very own Saoirse Ronan was nominated on the night for Best Actress for her role in Brooklyn and like Alicia Vikander chose a beautiful understated white gown with a stunning trail.

Emma Stone


My other favourite look on the night came from Emma Stone who did the androgyny look wonderfully and had a uniqueness with her trail.


Male Style

Eddie Redmayne


Nominated for Best Actor on the night for his role in The Danish Girl, Eddie Redmayne looked amazing in his very classic suit. The velvet look of the jacket is stunning.

Matt Bomer


Winner of Best Supporting Actor in a series, mini-series or TV movie for his role in The Normal Heart, Matt Bomer looked amazing in his very classic blue suit and matched his dickey bow brilliantly to his shoes which made me smile because the shoes reminded me of the type of shoes my dad loved and of course my dad was a very stylish man so clearly Matt Bomer is too.


Alan Cumming


Nominated for Supporting Actor in a TV series, movie or mini-series for his role in The Good Wife, Alan Cumming looked amazing in his pink suit and hip-hop style Christian Louboutin “Mika on Stage” high-top sneakers.

Wiz Khalifa


Wiz Khalifa’s look on the night was brilliant. The sunglasses, the white tie with the white shirt and the loafers with no socks make this look very unique and cool.

Jamie Dornan


Looking very classic on the night was our very own Jamie Dornan who also wore shoes that looked like shoes my dad liked to wear so again another very stylish man.

Jared Leto


My other favourite outfit on the night was by Jared Leto whose style I love. Donning a white suit and looking every inch the rock star he is, Jared looked amazing on the night.






The Amazing Photography Of Damon Baker!


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Fashion photographer Damon Baker hails from a small town in Worcestershire in England and like many people from small towns the 25-year-old photographer is making a big mark in his chosen creative field of fashion photography. He has already photographed Jared Leto, Shannon Leto, James Franco, Courtney Love, Michelle Williams, Ellie Goulding, Mark Ronson, Jonathan Groff, Mr Hudson, Candice Huffine, Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne, George Shelley, Agyness Deyn, Jessie J, David Gandy, Paris Hilton and Fearne Cotton amongst many more and has three very regular muses that he photographs Andreja Pejic, Rita Ora and Taylor Swift.






The three things that hit you instantly about Baker’s photography or at least hit me instantly are the naturalness he seems to bring out of his subjects, the retro feel and the sense that there is a narrative to the photographs. It’s all very well taking pictures that look visually brilliant which Baker does but if there’s no sense of story that drags you into the photograph well there’s not much point, is there? And Baker in his work certainly doesn’t overlook this aspect. Possibly it’s the writer in me that loves a sense of narrative in everything.

The Famous Oscars Selfie!


Selfies are the new craze! I know how to take them. Not so good at uploading them but I think their fab! 🙂 And the famous Oscars selfie from this year’s ceremony which included host Ellen DeGeneres, Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie,  Channing Tatum, Lupita Nyong’o, Julia Roberts, Peter Nyong’o and Meryl Streep and taken by Bradley Cooper.

Poor old Twitter couldn’t cope with the selfie which broke retweeting records with 2.3 million retweets.

DeGeneres later said at the awards the photograph had crashed Twitter.

“We really just made history. We’re all winners tonight,” she said to the crowd.

The Oscars 2014!

Jared Leto looking sexy at the Oscars!

Jared Leto looking sexy at the Oscars!

Presented this year by the amazingly funny Ellen DeGeneres (Who is so funny and down-to-earth that if I was gay I would fancy her.) the 86th Oscars was another fab ceremony. Last year’s Best Supporting Actress winner Anne Hathaway presented the award for Best Supporting Actor to the handsome, talented, stylish, perfect really Jared Leto. His speech was amazing. Jared who was at the event with his mum Constance and older brother Shannon said,

“In 1971, in Bossier City Louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. She was a high school dropout and a single mom, but somehow she managed to make a better life for herself and her children. She encouraged here kids to be creative and work hard and do something special. That girl was my mother and she’s here tonight. I just want to say ‘I love you mom, thank you for teaching me to dream. To my brother Shannon, the best big brother in the world: Thank you so much for sharing this insane adventure that is 30 Seconds to Mars and for being my best friend.”

Leto also spoke about the dreamers in countries such as Ukraine and Venezuela,

“To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to to say we are here, and as you struggle to make your dreams happen and live the impossible, we are thinking of you tonight.”

He ended his amazing speech by speaking about people who have lost their battle with AIDS and people who have been unjustly treated because of who they are and who they love,

“This is for the 36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS. And to those of you who have ever felt injustice because of who you are and who you love, I stand here in front of the world with you and for you.”

Stunning speech Jared. 

Best Supporting Actress went to Lupita Nyong’o who said in her emotional speech  she said in reference to Patsey, the slave she played in the movie,

“It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is due to so much pain in someone else’s.”

She ended her speech saying,

“When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from your dreams are valid.”

Sci-fi film Gravity won 7 gongs on the night including Best Director for Mr. Charming and Fabulous  Alfonso Cuaron.

Frozen won Best Original Song for Let It Go, sung by former Glee and Wicked star Idina Menzel buying off stiff competition from Her, Ordinary Love from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and Happy from Despicable Me 2.

Best Actor was presented to Matthew McConaughey, who received the award from Best Actress winner from last years Jennifer Lawrence and he said in a fab speech that he needed three things in his life to survive: God, his family and someone to look up to as a hero. He said that when he was 15 years old, he decided that hero would be himself in 10 years. Ten years later, he pushed the deadline back another decade. Then another decade.

“My hero’s always 10 years away. I’m never going to attain that. That keeps me with somebody to keep on chasing.”

The actor thanked God, his wife and children, his mother and his late father.

“First off, I want to thank God, because that’s who I look up to. He has graced my life with opportunities that I know are not of my hand or of any other human hand,” McConaughey said. “He has shown me that … it’s a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates. In the words of the late Charlie Laughton who said, ‘When you’ve got God you’ve got a friend — and that friend is you.’”

Cate Blanchett nabbed the Best Actress gong for Blue Jasmine and she received the award from the Best Actor winner from last year Daniel Day Lewis and said,

“Those in the industry who are foolishly clinging to the idea that female films, with women in the centre are niche experiences. They are not. Audiences want to see them. In fact they earn money.”

You go girl!

12 Years a Slave won Best Film with director Steve McQueen saying,

“The last word: everyone deserves not just to survive, but to live. This is the most important legacy of Solomon Northup. I dedicate this award to all the people who have endured slavery. And the 21 million people who still suffer slavery today. Thank you very much. Thank you.”

Very passionate, powerful speeches this year.

The Golden Globes 2014!

U2 had the luck of the Irish last night! Well done boys!

The Golden Globes were on last night where David O Russell’s American Hustle won three statuettes, including the prize for best comedy or musical while Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave won best drama. Meanwhile best director was won by the very witty Alfonso Cuáron for Gravity.

Best foreign language film went to Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty and best screenplay went to Spike Jonze’s Her.

There was an Irish winner in U2’s Ordinary Love, from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Bono spoke about working on the film and said how it completed a decades-long journey with Mandela, having played an anti-apartheid concert 35 years ago. “This man turned our life upside down, right-side up,” he said of the late Mandela who sadly passed away last month. “A man who refused to hate not because he didn’t have rage or anger or those things, but that he thought love would do a better job.”

Larry Mullen said: “Not only South Africa, but thanks to Mandela, the course of history in our country, holy Catholic Ireland, was changed forever. Amen.”

Michael Fassbender from Kerry who was nominated for his role as a plantation owner in 12 Years a Slave lost out to Jared Leto who plays a HIV-positive transsexual female in Dallas Buyers Club in the best supporting section. Meanwhile Matthew McConaughey won best actor in a drama for Dallas Buyers Club.

Jennifer Lawrence won the best supporting actress for American Hustle while Amy Adams won best actress in a comedy or musical for the same film while Leonardo DiCaprio won the best actor in the musical/comedy division for Wolf of Wall Street.

Cate Blanchett won also for her role in Woody Allen’s Jasmine Blue.

Philomena, based on an Irish woman’s story to find her son, was nominated in best picture while Breaking Bad, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Behind the Candelabra each won two awards in the television sections.

Woody Allen won the lifetime achievement award.

Presenters on the night were Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Comment below and let me know if you enjoyed the show and whether you thought the right people won each award! 🙂
