SAG Awards: Top 3 Best Dressed

Awards season is currently in full swing with many dazzling looks gracing red carpets. Just last weekend the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards took place on Saturday January 18th. Actors were honored for outstanding performances in film and television. Here are my top three winning looks from the red carpet.

1. Amy Adams wore a stunning royal blue Antonio Berardi dress and killer heels. The American Hustle actress appeared every bit the movie star she is in this impeccable “Old Hollywood Glamour” look!

2. Camila Alves in a gorgeous golden yellow vintage Donna Karen Atelier gown looked like a modern day bombshell. The rest of her look was minimal which enhanced the easy effortless feeling of the look.

3. Katrina Bowden wore a slick black Badgley Mischka number with gold accents. The play on textures between the black and gold added to the sophistication of the ensemble.

Intriguing Film and Theatre at Lincoln Center

EHBefore

Lincoln Center has long been considered one of New York’s cultural centers with many fascinating performances. This season is no different, showcasing Academy and Tony Award Nominated actor Ethan Hawke in the title role of Macbeth. Shakespeare’s classic Scottish play comes alive with a stellar cast on the stage of the Vivian Beaumont Theater.

This week also finds the Lincoln Center Film Society screening all three films in director Richard Linklater’s Before series. The series stars Ethan Hawke as Jesse and Julie Delpy as Celine. In Before Sunrise Jesse and Celine meet by chance on a train through Europe. After getting off in Vienna, they spend the night exploring the city and find themselves falling in love.

Fast forward nine years to Before Sunset. In Paris the pair meets again, just as Jesse is finishing a book tour based on their chance meeting years earlier. Finally, Before Midnight shows Celine and Jesse another nine years later, now a couple at the end of their Greek vacation. All there films have a very interesting look at time and relationships. While still maintaining a hopeful sense of romantic love, the smart dialogue and intelligent complex characters feel very real. The gorgeous European locations provide the perfect backdrop for their story to unfold. Celine and Jesse will forever be one of my favorite film couples and the series is one of my absolute favorites.

Catch the films and the play while you can, they are not to be missed!

Croatia Revistied

2013 has come and gone, leaving behind some very memorable moments. Among those memorable moments, one of the most notable was visiting friends and family in Croatia this past Fall. Although it was a short and sweet trip, I took in every moment spent with loved ones and all those majestic views! No matter how many times I visit, I always find the Adriatic Coast and the Austro-Hungarian architecture absolutely stunning! Sometimes rediscovering old favorite places can bring new insight and perspective.
