Hollywood Royalty Style Stars... "Style Star" TV show aired on the Style Network. This episode's theme: Hollywood Royalty. And it was all about actresses Drew Barrymore and Kate Hudson.
Naturally, I was asked to be one of the "Style Commentators"--along with my good friend Marcellas Reynolds, hair guru Ken Paves, and LA Times Image Section style writer and editor, Melissa Magsaysay--among others.Of course, we discuss her "Valley of The Dolls" moment at "HBO's Grey Gardens" premiere...the bouffant hair, the halter gown with attached embroidered sequined neck piece: HOT! To her 2010 Golden Globes Haute Couture Moment, wearing that Atelier Versace champagne-colored silk gown with the "sea urchin" sequined shoulder and high-hip detail. remember, it was raining and someone forgot to put a TARP at the Hilton Red Carpet (Notice the wet hem!). Need I remind you, that gown would probably retail at about $80,000. Yes, FOUR zeros kids. And now, onto Kate Hudson: Of course, there is some discussion on "Style Star" regarding her Custom Chloe gown by then-designer Stella McCartney at the 2001 Academy Awards. Many style bloggers consider this one of the "All-Time Worst" of the Academy Awards Red Carpet. I don't think the gown was half-bad. The 80's "Kindness Perm" hair style was what did it for me. However... Goldie's talented--and stylish--daughter, came back, in 2003 at the 75Th Annual Academy Awards in a gorgeous nude Atelier Versace gown that well, pretty much put her in the "Hall of Fame" of "Best Dressed at the Oscars".
