Emmy Awards... oh yes & are you kidding me?


And yes it was time for the Emmy Awards again and the best and worst list are galore on the world wide web! 

Every time I watch the red carpet I think oh yes..... finally a great one... and there is the moment when I take a bite of a snack almost choke and think.... are you kidding me!????

Here are some of my OH, YES dresses and some of my ARE YOU KIDDING ME MOMENTS! 


Perfection like a goddess!


Heidi looks good in almost everything! 


Lovely.... I have been watching her and she gets better and better with each award! 


It's interesting and creative! Love the structural design. 


Very classic vintage look! 


Kathrine Heigel's dress reminds me of the golden era, so a definitely  OH, YES from me. 

And now the not so pleasant for the eye moments....

Are you kidding me?!!!?

Don;t get me wrong... but if you have $$$$ and the world is at your feet, try at least to look good. Get a stylist, look in the f...... mirror!

If Lena Duham had a stylist for this outfit, this person needs to go back to fashion school! 
Don't worry I am not turning into Joan Rivers here, but c'mon! 

If you are short don;t ever wear a skirt that makes you look shorter,  larger, and that does not look good on you. The top is completely wrong and does not fit the occasion. If your upper arms are not toned, this is not the blouse for you! 



Oh dear Christina Hendricks, you a so beautiful lady.... are you kidding me in this outfit?
Wrinkled, ill fitted and simply wrong! Shoulder, bust line and hem..... disaster zones! 
Who ever designed the dress, the pleats are poor work! 



By trade I'm a fashion designer so I know what I am talking about and when I see dresses like that, my heart simply cringes. 
Yes, taste and opinions are unique and can;t be discussed, but remember one thing! Not every dress fits your body! 
Dress for your body!  

What are you favourite dresses from the Emmy Awards and what were your are you kidding me moments?

Carpe Diem,

Lauren Bacall and Coffee

Lauren Bacall was one of my favourite actresses from the golden era of Hollywood. Beauty, brains, class, elegance, style and grace.
She and Humphrey Bogart made a great team.  A beautiful strong couple, that is now united again.

I do not smoke but I love the images of her with the cigarettes. In her honer I illustrated her with actual coffee. This is what she liked to drink.... a good black coffee.


E voilà....my coffee art.


If you are interested in more details, feel free to visit the Shop

RIP Lauren :) 
Enjoy!
