The Fabulous, The Ugly and The In-Betweens

Forget about the actual Golden Globes ceremony, the biggest battle is on the red carpet and it all comes down to who wore what! This year, the red carpet came alive with color. Emerald greens, lipstick reds,  feminine nudes/pastels and fun metallics seem to dominate. I personally think the majority of dresses were absolute fashion blunders, but there were a few hits that will surely make you go green with envy.

The Fabulous:

I just can't get over Olivia Wilde's Marchesa gown. What's not to love about it? The hue, embellishment, and over the top tulle equals red carpet success! Don't even get me started on her Louboutin shoes.

I am so glad Angelina Jolie opted to wear some color instead of her usual black. Although green was very popular at this event, she definitely had the best look. This simple yet stunning Versace gown, covered with Swarovski crystals, gave off an old Hollywood elegance that worked perfectly for her.

Paintings Made Up Of Real People

Alexa Meade manages to skillfully comine paint, installation,  portraiture and photography to create an amazing body of work. Instead of using acrylic paint to create people on canvas, she works backwards by applying paint on her subjects, blending them into becoming part of the artwork. Check out these images and video of her work!

Revamping the School Photo

No more stiff poses, dull backgrounds or forced smiles. Isn't this how you would want to remember your kid? Stomping Ground have successfully reinvented the school picture by encouraging kids to "wear whatever they like, bring their favorite toy, dress up in their fanciest costume, dance and jump around". If only they were around for my school pictures!
