Royal Honey: Get inspired by Spring 2013's freshest color: Royal Blue!!

Hello Honey's,

There are many awesome things that are blue: Beyonce and Jay-Z have Blue Ivy (and she just turned 1), My favorite European Soccer Team and World Champions Chelsea FC's team colors are blue, the NY Giant's colors (Go NY, even though we are out of the playoffs) are blue and Princess Kate's engagement ring is a beautiful sapphire blue.Now you can be a part of the blue-fest for Spring 2013, because Royal Blue has been ravishing the runways and advertisements (Gucci, Versus and Fendi) as of late. I love this color and how it works for most complexions.

 Royal blue according to Wikipedia "describes both a bright shade and a dark shade of azure blue. It is said to have been invented by millers in Rode, Somerset, a consortium of which won a competition to make a dress for the British queen, Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.[3]"

Now you can be like the Royals and enjoy Royal blue at all costs, now I am not saying that you are going to win a monopoly game and a royal blue dress will be made for you, but you can use your royal fingers and purchase a dress at the link that I have provided below.

Look Royal

If you definitely have a budget like a royal, check out the pieces that I put together, that can make you look awesome.

Spend like a Royal

You can't do a blue outfit without having some trendy makeup as well. I love using navy blue liner under my eyes. Maybe after scoping these options, I might have to expand my color options to nails and mascara as well!

Royal Blue Beauty

I plan to work a video on how you can incorporate this look into your sophisticated lifestyle. Follow me on my color journey throughout spring!

Awards Honey: My TOP 10 Fave Looks from the Golden Globes

Hello My Honey's,

If you weren't watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta, you were definitely watching the Golden Globes. I will be honest and say that there was way too much flesh tone and black gowns which made most of the red carpet a snooze fest, but I really enjoyed the looks of the actresses I selected below. I also was tired of seeing everyone do the "Angelina leg" when they posed. *Bore*.  I also wished that I saw more actresses of color... but I digress; check out my faves on the red carpet. Images are credited to Getty Images and AP!

The Honey Awards for best dressed on the Red Carpet for the Golden Globes goes to:

1) Nicole Richie in Naeem Khan Spring 2013, Best Lace Gown
Nicole Richie is no stranger to great taste, so it didn't surprise me when she chose this Naeem Khan stunner straight off the runway. Nicole you hit it right on the nail and I thank you for not falling into the gap of boring color on the red carpet this year.

2. Heidi Klum in Alexandre Vauthier  (Sexiest Gown) : her asymmetrical one shoulder beaded gown, with ultimate thigh high slit made her quite the vision in white! Just beautiful! I heard that she had a near wardrobe malfunction with her thigh high slit.... hmm....

3. Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Couture(Best Old Hollywood)
I loved the old Hollywood glamour of the gown and the futuristic look of her skinny belt. It really accentuated her waist and modernized her look.

4. Morena Baccarin in Valentino
I loved how unique her Valentino gown was on the red carpet. She nailed it with airy pleats and beaded column down the middle of her torso. She is the winner of the Dare to be Different gown!

5) Jennifer Lopez in  Zuhair Murad ( based on curve appeal, boy the Golden Globes were lacking!!)
Jennifer worked the see through lace white applique gown! She got the award for "Gown for Most Curve Appeal" I loved how it looked on her. Artfully tailored and strategically placed design won her a top 10 spot on my list. Jennifer Lopez although not nominated knows how to win on the red carpet!

6) Kaley Cuoco in Catherine Kidd : Best Neckline
I loved loved Kaley's gown. Albeit, her color is fleshtone, but the neckline made the gown soo stunning!

7) Taylor Swift in Donna Karan (Best backless dress)
Finally! An edgier look!! I was excited to not recognize Taylor Swift in her uniformed sequin airy gowns! I loved the structure of the shift and the balance in the mermaid tail! Her hair, makeup and dress looked stunning! I just wished they used a little starch when they steamed her gown.

8) Naomi Watts in Zac Posen: ( Best Color)
The Oxblood color was so rich and gorgeous and I live for that train!!!

9) Jennifer Garner in Vivienne Westwood (Best Sequin design on Gown), worked that Garnet Sequined gown. She looks great. The neckline was perfect and the hue totally complemented her porcelain skin. Just glam.

10) Selena Gomez in Atelier Versace! Sadly, she was covered in most photos but her dress looked better than a Golden Globe!! I give the gown Best Structure!  I loved the peplum structure, gold brocade design and corset of the gown as well as the aspect of it being a mini! Donatella makes great dresses!!

There you have it ladies, It was great stalking the red carpet and I look forward to what you thought were your faves!!

Time to put the binoculars away and hit the pillow!

Take Care!
