Awards season in Hollywood is just warming up. Over the course of a month or two, the celebs hit a series of red carpets in a row, as others note what they wear and who they show up with and who wins.
I stick to the classics, the Academy Awards and Grammys. But, in post-Golden Globes coverage, something caught my eye: sleeves. For women committed to dressing modestly, it was a bit of a victory -- what we've thought all along may actually be true: it is possible to be gorgeous, fashion-forward, glamorous, sophisticated and womanly (even hot) while maintaining a certain level of discretion. Applause!
Crossing fingers this trend will trickle down to department stores, where evening wear options are either supershort-bandeautop-powderypastel prom "dresses" or matronly-neutralshaded-waistlinehidden grandmother of the bride "dresses." At the very least, I'm pleased to have some lovely reference points for those who think dressing demurely is a total drag. It can be beautiful!
