I'm kind of a big sucker for awards shows. There are some I pass up (Critic's Choice Awards, AMAs, any on MTV), but most of them I will watch, and definitely the big name ones I am guaranteed to have it on. Grammys, Tonys, Golden Globes, Oscars, Billboard Music Awards....yeah I'm on it. I can't explain it, but I really dig the celebrity life. Not in the sense that I want to have their life and live all the glamour or whatever, but i'm oddly fascinated in their interactions with other celebrities, and the opinions of each other. Which all come together nicely at award shows.
I rarely do any written commentary on the shows, and even less do I ever do anything with outfits. If you know me, fashion doesn't really factor into my life. Before I was 18, I got on with jeans, sneakers and a sweatshirt. In college, I got on with jeans, slippers (or flip-flops, as I guess non-Asians call them), and layered shirts of a deep-v over a cami/tank. Now? I get on in yoga pants and t-shirts. I'm sure that'll morph when I finally get a job, but you get the point. What the hell do I know about couture and the like? Aside from Project Runway, my reportoire is non-existent.
BUT! Let's alter that a bit and learn some fun things about me using the attendees and the outfits of Golden Globe goers, shall we?
watching my Chargers lose and my boy place second at Nationals...*sob sob*). But the more I stare at it, the more I come around to it. It's not anything I'd ever wear (too bright), but...I kinda like it. It reminds me of mosaic art and the museums I'd go to and some of the street art I'd see when I was walking around Italy. If that dress were in a solid, dark colour I would totally rock it...and if I had a body remotely acceptable for that kind of exposure. I also included her (and Stephen Moyer) because they represent True Blood, a terribly horrible show (at least Season 1, since that's all I saw) that I just can't stop watching. I am just as liable to watch brilliant shows like 30 Rock as I am to watch trash TV like True Blood.
Which leads me to boys! I don't discuss love life much on this blog (it's kind of non-existent at the moment anyway), but lets just set that aside for this. So first, I will admit that I have a Type. It's not a solid type--I mean, the rules are a bit flexible, but in general, if you know it, you could pick out the man in a crowded room. So, unfortunately, no one that fit my bill was at the awards, BUT...as I said, I'm flexible, right? Yes, let's!
Vivian!), but let's be real: he's hot. And it was so worth it. And because I like to parade this little gem around (please ignore me and my terrible hair and glasses that needed to be pushed up):
Moving along (almost done here kids, I know this is super long), let's actually get into the good things. The things that count. Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I mean, I do think he's quite attractive, but I also find that he seems to be pretty grounded. He seems so intelligent and passionate and creative. I love the work he does, and I honestly think he's become such a solid man. I know I've never met him so this could all be crap, but let me just believe, ok? Ok.
And lastly, but ever so not least, what it all comes down to is I would like a man who is gracious enough to do this, and lovable enough to do it with a smile on his face:
