Times Up in the Little Black Dress by OHMJAM

“This I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. ” in Versace

‘Times Up’ were the words on everyone’s lips at the Golden Globes 2018 and they all spoke those words wearing ‘Little black dresses‘.

WOW is all I can say after watching last night as I sat hemming a pair of black palazzo pants.  Oprah’s speech was riveting and I sat for 8 plus minutes crying listening to her words.  I can’t say enough about this woman who has done so much to change the way we think and look at things for the past how many years?  She has inspired me for as long as I can remember so every accolade she receives is for me a celebration of her magnificence.  But this blog isn’t about Oprah’s acceptance speech for her Cecil B. DeMille award last night; it’s about the little black dresses that I loved.  Nonetheless, I encourage any and everyone to listen to her speech again and again.

I watch and enjoy all the award shows, admittedly moreso to see the fashion and last night was no exception.  You would think that everyone in black might be boring but hell no, it was powerful.  Here are my favourites.

Allison Brie in Vassilis Zoulias

Allison Brie looked elegant in this jumpsuit with an overskirt by Vassilis Zoulias.

Laura Dern in Armani Prive

Laura Dern glittered in this sleek Armani Prive gown.

Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive

Jessica Chastain stunned in this simple yet sophisticated dress with just a hint of glitz also by Armani Prive.

Gal Gadot in Tom Ford

Who doesn’t love a Tux jacket and a ruched dress and Gal Gadot looked amazing in this Tom Ford design.

Jessica Biel in Dior

Jessica Biel could wear a paper bag and look stunning but in this gown by Dior she outdid herself once again.

Elizabeth Moss stunned in this simple black dress by ?????

Try as I did I couldn’t find the designer of Elisabeth Moss’s dress but I loved it and her speech.

I saved my favourite for last.

Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen

This was one of the first dresses I saw and I was anxious to see what, if anything would replace it as my favourite.  There were some wonderful dresses but Reese Witherspoon in this one shoulder, tailored to perfection dress by Zac Posen remained my absolute favourite of the night.

Just goes to show that sometimes less is more.  I love simple elegance because it allows you to wear the dress and not the dress to wear you.

Who were your favourites?

Time is Up indeed but In the meantime, Keep Creating!
