Black Evening Gowns Made a Statement and Made Everyone Look Great at Golden Globes

While the memo at the Golden Globes celebration as to wear black as a sign of protest  against sexual harassment in  Hollywood, it also showed how wearing black evening wear can make just about everyone look great,  So many awards ceremonies have had hits and misses as far as fashion is concerned, But  at this years Golden Gloves everyone appeared to be a hit.  Here are some examples of how wearing black evening wear can make you look even better,

Allison Janney looked awesome in this black butterfly cutout of a dress witht he white accents for the butterfly;s wings , It also may have made a statement about the rebirth of women in Hollywood in terms of power.

Margot Robbie’s dress looked great on the upper part,  but on the bottom it was a bit heavy with the silver beading only at the waist which looked like an upside down heart. Perhaps that dress was selected to made a statement of an upside down heart indicating the sadness of what has been going on in Hollywood.

Mariah Carey never looked better with this mermaid trumpet dress, The neck with the band across it looked like a statement was being made  which meant “No” as in no more sexual harassment , Nariah looked radiant in this black dress which seemed to have it all with see through ruching at body of the dress .

Even though Hallie Berry was one of the few who wore a shorter dress it looked beautiful in black like with thicker lace in strategic parts of the dress. Iy would have been even more beautiful if it was longer. Another thing I notice was that the makeup on so many was no as heavy as we have seen in other awards ceremonies. perhaps that was a statement as well.

Even those who were made up like Nichole Kidman had more natural  looking makeup.

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 5.35.25 AM.pngMary K Blide looked outstanding with her black and one sleeved sliver sequin  gown with silver on he side, The other arm arm looked like she was wearing jewelry on her arm but it was the beauty of this dress.  Her lipstick was soft and natural looking that enhanced her beauty. He gown and her look was my favorite of the evening.

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 5.36.24 AM                                 And as far as accessories went the best accessory was Oprah’s glasses with  black sequins at the top of the glasses. The size of the glasses looked very flattering as well. Oprah;s makeup was subtle and brought out her best features while her black dress with boat neck also flattered her curvy figure.

This Golden Globes ceremony was very empowering in terms of what women said and how they presented themselves. It made a huge statement that there would be a big change in Hollywood and that women would no longer stand by and be victims of Hollywood’s sexual harassment.

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 5.58.41 AM.pngPerhaps the best statement was made by Barbara Streisand who was the only woman to with best Director. She told the audience that it was in 1984 and that we needed to step it up with more women directors. That made me feel particularly great since i am one of those new women directors with just having completed the rough cut of  my first documentary film .

Tom Cruise and Katie Holme’s Body Language Show They Are Both Unhappy

Tom and Katie unhappy

This photo was just released from Radaronline with the headline which read “How romantic!” should read “How unromantic!”There is absolutely nothing romantic about this photo or the countless other photos I just analyzed for In Touch Weekly regarding Tom and Katie’s body language and what it says about their relationship.

In a retrospective I did, you can see how miserable they look together. It’s quite a contrast from their early days together. It is clear that this couple has grown apart. Now practically all of Tom and Kate’s photos look like this with his head bowed down, having a tight hand grip on Katie, both looking in the opposite direction as Katie looks tense, sad or both.

It doesn’t matter that they recently purchased a new NY Greenwich village 15 million dollar townhome or are seen holding hands. There is nothing romantic about Tom and Katie anymore as both of their body languages scream unhappiness. No matter how hard they try to fake it for the sake of the press, their true feelings leak out.


Tom is clearly not happy with Katie anymore and it shows in his body language. It has become more and more evident based on all of the recent photos I have analyzed. In fact, now mater how many pictures they take with Suri or without Suri , the bottom line is they both look miserable. Tom who for decades has usually been seen happy or calm, now looks terribly sad. Never before have we seen Tom looking so serious and so “bummed out.”He looks down. He looks tense. He looks unhappy This is not the Tom we once knew.

No matter what your opinion was of Tom Cruise is, no one can deny that he had the most electric and infectious . His smile seemed to make you smile. The only time Tom wasn’t smiling or calm was when he was in a film role when he was looking sad or angry or doing whatever was required of the character.

But now it seems that’s the only facial expression Tom is wearing is a tense and sad one. No matter how much handholding with Katie, he is unhappy around her.


Kalie looks just as miserable if not more. While Tom doesn’t even bother to smile , sometimes you see Katie eeking out a phony or fake smiles where her lips are spread but her eyes are sad. In this phot you see the tension in her neck muscles. She used to have a beautiful smile as well where she used to place her tongue up on the roof of her mouth and always have an open mouthed smile. You never see this facial expression in her anymore. She seems like a mere shell of herself.

When you look at the early photos of the two of them, they were clearly in love. Tom was smitten with her and she adored Tom. Their bodies didn’t lie then and they don’t like now. Now it is the complete opposite. The only thing they have in common it seems is their love for little Suri. They are both obviously staying in the marriage for the sake of Suri but it is at a huge cost- their happiness.


I hope Tom and Katie shwo their charismatic and genuines smile again. It is hard to be happy with anyone who csn’t happy being with you. I hope they resolve whatever is ailing them.This way everyone can be happy.
They both deserve to be happy and genuinely smile again.
