Yesterday was the annual fashion event of the year and it did for sure not dissapoint! Even though the styles and themes of the night were a bit split, the red carpet was filled with gorgeous looking ladies and gentlemen. I just love all these kinds of events, when you get to see both TV-, movie- and music stars together attending the same event, with loads of beautiful dresses and amazing hair and make-up.
Pictures say more than words, so take a look below!
These first 2 collages are of my favourite outfits from the night:
Left to right: Anne Hathaway, Cara Delevingne, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Diane Kruger,
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, Gisele Bunchen, Anna Kendrick
Left to right: Joan Smalls, Kendall Jenner, Suki Waterhouse, Lily Aldridge,
Miley Cyrus new campaign for Marc Jacobs was released the previous weekend. The photos, taken by David Sims, shows Milet toegther with other models on an abandoned beach with post-apocalyptic feelings.
Personally, I really don't like the photos. I don't think that Miley is approriate as a model and I'm actually a bit dissapointed with Marc Jacobs for choosing her. She has the same facial expression on every picture, pouting those lips and looking like a sad and grumpy little kid that didn't get it's candy.
This campaign get a big thumbs down from me, even though the setting and the background otherwise is very impressive and a bit surrealistic a la Dalí.
Since I'm really interested in fashion, celebrities and with that also models, I thought I'd give you a little insight on my top 5 favourite models at the moment. It was sooo hard to choose only 5, since I like quite many, but I was able to narrow it down to these 5. Number 1 and 2 have been my favourites for a long time and haven't changed, but the rest change a bit from time to time, but still remain in the top.
I've also added some basic modelling facts about them, like height, weight, measurements, age and so on.

Yesterday it was time for the 86th Academy Awards, or more commonly known as the Oscars. This is the absolute hightlight of all the award shows, for all kinds of entertainment people. It's the most prestige award you can get as an actor, a director or anything that has to do with the movie business.
For me, this whole event is as much about fashion and celebrities as it is about the actual meaning of the awards. Therefore, there will be a bit of both. Below I've listed all of the categories and the winners. After that, it's time for some fashion!

Here are my favourite looks from the night
Amy Adams in a gorgeous dark blue dress that suits her skin and hair perfectly!
Anne Hathaway in a glamorous bejeweled black dress that is quite simple, but with that little extra!
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the never aging couple. They never seem to dissapoint when it comes to red carpet looks!
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan looked absolutely gorgeous last night! Quickly back in shape after giving birth to their first child and showing off her success in this completely mindblowing creation.
Emma Watson is of course super stylish as always. Smokey eyes and red lips can never go wrong on a red carpet and Emma pulls it off perfectly pairing it with a black dress with some subtle sparkle to make everything a bit more interesting.
Jennifer Lawrence looks beyond gorgeous, beautiful and everything in between in this orange red dress. This look takes my mind back to her first Oscar appearance and shows in a great way the development this amazing actress has had these last three years.
Naomi Watts looks angel-like in this beautiful modern white creation. White was a really popular colour among the celebrities' dresses this year.
Sandra Bullock is someone whom you wouldn't expect to be one who's that interested in fashion, but she impresses me every time there's an award show with her impecable dress choices.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner, known from Keeping Up With the Kardashians, are going to release their debut novel "Rebels: City of Indra" this summer.
"Kylieand I lovethe creative challengeand are excitedto have the opportunityto releasethis story," saidKendall, 18, to E!News. "We can hardlywait toshare some ofthesecharacters andthe worldwe have createdwithreadersworldwide.We are soexcited," filledher sisterKylie, 16,in.

The book will be releasedon June 3rdthis year.
These tragic news hit me this morning. Philip Seymour Hoffman, a worldwide famous actor, for the younger generation most known for playing the role of Plutarch Heavensbee in Catching Fire, passed away. The information from the police is that it was an overdose.
You will be incredibly missed by all the people you touched, directly or through your movies!
This Brazilian supermodel never fails so surprise. The gorgeous Adriana Lima looks like a complete bronze goddess in the latest campaign from Donna Karan. Wearing exotic drapey print dresses and leather necklaces she looks absolutely stunning.
Shakira - Can't Remember To Forget You feat. Rihanna
Yesterday, Monday the 13th, Shakira's and Rihanna's new collaboration product was released. The song is called "Can't Remember To Forget You" and is more Shakira's style than Rihanna's, but with a bit rockier sound than we're usually used to when it comes to Shakira. When describing it more professionally, you could say that it's a mix of pop, reggae and rock, a very interesting and different combination. For me, I think it's the kind of song that you don't like that much in the beggining, but the more you listen to it, the better it gets. So even if you don't feel like you love it from the first second I think you should give it a chance, but that's entirely up to you. I'm guessing this song will be playing on all kinds of radio channels pretty soon, and I'm really looking forward to the music video, that's gonna be really interesting.
Fun fact, the Swedish singer/songwriter Erik Hassle had a finger in making the song. You didn't expect that, huh?
Yesterday it was time for the 71st Golden Globes. Packed with all different kinds of celebrities, fashion and gossip it's definately one of my favourite events of the year. Whole Hollywood gets extra glammed up, people prepare for it for months and finally it's time to walk down the red carpet.

I was really happy that "American Hustle" won 3 awards, I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie, it seems so good! A bit bummed though that Zooey Deschanel didn't win the "Best female actress in tv-series, musical or comedy", I really think she deserved it.
Now, to the fashion!
Amy Adams in Valentino
One of the two hostesses, Amy Poehler in Stella McCartney
Yes guys, you heard right. Our all time favourite fashionista is newly engaged to Johannes Huebl, boyfriend since five years. They're such a beautiful and stylish couple, I'm really happy for them both!
Johannes proposed to her on a romantic holiday to St Barts on Wednesday.
The German model, 27, quickly took to Instagram to share a cute video of her showing off her impressive diamond ring.
He wrote: "Happy New Year to everybody and this is how we celebrate it: OP said Y E S."
The video shows beautiful Olivia, dressed in a romantic white dress, playfully running away from the camera while looking back at it.
She then stops and holds her hand up to her face to display the large rock Johannes proposed with.
The couple has been dating since 2008 after being introduced through mutual friends.
Olivia previously put the success of their couple's five-year relationship down to a mutual respect and admiration, while Johannes admitted they have a "old romantic" approach to love.
She said in an interview with ELLE Magazine: "I think that we grow together. I think that I'm constantly learning, and we're both eager to learn about not only each other, but our interests."
Johannes added: "I think we have a very conservative, old romantic, private approach to our love."
Olivia starred in the reality show The City, a spinoff from The Hills, for two seasons from 2008 but now concentrates on modeling, her fashion line and her fashion blog.
Love is painful, at least if you ask these celebrity couples that ended their love during 2013. These lovebirds left their nests apart, starting new relationships, writing songs about the bad breakups or just continued on like normal people. However, their time together is over.
Which breakups are you happy about and which ones would you like to still see together?
Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder
The fellow co-stars of the hit series "The Vampire Diaries" broke up in May this year, after three years as a couple. They are still working together and say they're friends.
Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner
This couple separated officially in October this year. "We're living separately and we're much happier like this", they said in a joint interview. They were married for 22 years.
Jason Trawick and Britney Spears
After more than 3 years together, Britney and her fiancé went different ways.
Malin Åkerman and Roberto Zincone
This couple have up their marriage a few months after their first child was born, after six years of marriage.
Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom
Probably the most beautiful couple in Hollywood went their separate ways this year, after 3 years of marriage. They have one child together, Flynn, born in 2011.
George Clooney and Stacy Keibler
In July, George Clooney and Stacy Keibler ended their relationship. The reason must have been that Keibler wanted to have children and get married, while Clooney wanted the opposite.
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian
Khloe filed for divorce from her husband Lamar since 4 years, on December 13th. One of the reasons was that he had been unfaithful and that he has a drug problem.
Harry Styles and Taylor Swift
Harry and Taylor broke up early this year, after 3 months together. It is rumored that she wrote "I Knew You Were Troble" about him, but other sources say the song was about John Mayer.
MIchael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
This couple confirmed that they have taken a break from eachother in August, after 13 years of marriage.
Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus
In September Miley and her fiancé broke off their engagement.
...again! 42-year-old Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman welcomed their second child on Sunday, December 22nd, as she wrote on Twitter.
"So excited to welcome our baby boy into the world.... he's 3520 g, beautiful, healthy and we couldn't be happier", she writes. The full name of the lastest addition to the family is... Kaius "Kai" Jagger Berman. The couple already has the son Skyler, almost 2 years old, together.
Barbara Walters listed her most interesting people-list not so long ago, and of course Jennifer Lawrence was in it.
Jennifer's career spiked after the first HUnger Games-movie, since then we've seen her in The Silverlining's Playbook and we have quite some movies to look forward to during 2014.
But even though her amazing personality and gorgeous looks, she's received a lot of critic. Mainly it's different people and magazines calling her "fat" or "overweight". During this interview Jennifer speaks up for herself, claiming it "should be illegal to call someone fat".
Or, cloudy skies, if you should go by today's weather. Monday mornings are always the same, boring, grey and NEVER fun. Mondays for me start with Bussines Economics, a class where you have to use your brain, which doens't work that well when you're barely staying awake.
Lindasy Lohan is apparently going to write a book? Is it only me or does this really sound like just an another rumor? I don't really know what to think about it, if it's really true it will be really interesting to read it.
According to Jezebel the book is about rehab, being famous, and having Michael Lohan for a father. Even though the book is still in it's conceptual stage, as a result of a series therapeutic journal exercises, it has made several publishers interested in the idea. There are even speculation about six-figure advances!
Now I know there's been much talk about photoshopping photos of celebrities and all of that, especially recently after Ashley Benson's criticism over the new PLL campaign. We've all been told from early years that we're perfect just the way we are. Then there's media, constantly banking down on both boys and girls, how they should look, behave and dress.
This example with Jennifer Lawrence is just one of many situations when natural beauty isn't enough for those midless people called editors. Since when do people actually look like that, seriously? And moving her bones around, are you freakin' kidding me? This is what the industry does, they take beautiful and gorgeous people like Jennifer or the cast of PLL and turn them into unnatural aliens. No wonder society has so many girls suffering from eating disorders or having low self esteem.
I’ve thought about writing about eating disorders for quite some time now, because it’s something that’s getting more and more common in our society, both amongst girls and boys. It’s so sad that people go to these extremes and I wish I could help them. I’m not saying anything bad about them, I don’t really think that I have the right to judge or comment people on this aspect, since I’m not perfect myself. But what I can do is inform and hopefully give some inspiration to those who are suffering from all kinds of eating disorders, by giving these examples of celebrities that have made their way from having these problems to being (somewhat) healthy today.
Jessica Alba is today known for her healthy lifestyle, but in 1999 she suffered from anorexia when she was preparing for her role in the movie “Into the Dark”. “Many girls have eating disorders, I had it too. When I went from having a girl’s body to a woman’s body, with fat in natural places, I panicked”, she said. Alba says she hopes that no girl treats her body the way she did.
Lindsay Lohan may not be one of the healthiest celebrities today, but at least she’s no longer bulimic. “I was sick, and I was scared too”, she said about her darkest days in 2006. “I had people sit me down and say, “You’re going to die if you don’t take care of yourself”.
Ashlee Simpson suffered from anorexia at a very young age. When practicing ballet at the age of 11, the pressure to be slim was so big it drove her into having an eating disorder. Ashlee says she’s overcome them today, but she’s afraid that other children will make the same mistakes.
Demi Lovato has battled binge eating and bulimia in her younger years. “My eating disorder will continue to affect me for the rest of my life”, she said to Seventeen Magazine, and wishes she had never been afflicted by it in the beginning.
Victoria Beckham has admitted she suffered from an eating disorder during her early Spice Girls years. “I struggled with the pressure to be thin”, she wrote in her autobiography, and says that she’s thankful for the help she’s received that made her conquer the disorder.
Kelly Clarkson got criticized for her curves during her time in American Idol. She later confessed that she suffered from an eating disorder in high school, when missing out on a musical role. “I thought… If I came back and I was cuter and thinner… then I’ll get the role”, she said. Today she’s all free from her bad thoughts about her weight.
My all time favorite model Candice Swanepoel was seen yesterday filming for "Extra". Wearing a gorgeous deep dark red lace dress and matching lipstick, she looked beyond gorgeous! These photos make me even more excited about watching the Victoria's Scret Fashion Show 2013 with my friends this weekend. It's going to be magical!
Finally Monday is over, probably the worst day of the week. It was long and hard, but it ended in a very nice way.
I have a actually found a soft spot; ice-cream! I can eat tons of it all at the same time! Like today, on my way home from school I bought this box of delicious vanilla ice-cream with bits of Daim, and I ate the whole box myself. If I can continue like this I'm gonna get some serious health issues, but it's so damn good I can't help myself! Also, life's to short to keep out the good parts! But it doesn't mean you should get an extra 10 kg out of ice-cream hahahaha!
So yesterday I started watching "Gone" with Amanda Seyfried, but I didn't watch the whole movie because I was too tired. So I watched the rest of it when I got home and it was so good! Thank you Jennifer for letting me know about it!
Since the movie was so good and I still was in the mood for an another thriller movie, I ended up watching "The Call" with Halle Berry. I'll watch the end of it soon, but I just have to say that that woman has some good genes! She looks flawless, though her age! She's truly one of the most beautiful women on earth!
Also today for dinner our family decided to try something new: Indian inspired food! We ended up doing this stew that consisted of beans, chickpeas, haricot verts and a lot of spices together with traditional Naan bread. We even ended up eating with our hands! Hahahah! Tonight I truly channelled my inner Indian girl! Either way, it was one of the most delicious meals I've ever had in my entire life and you all should try it sometime. Just let me know if you'd like the recipe or something!
So Olivia Palermo had an amazing photoshoot for Miss Vogue Australia a little while ago. She is so incredibly beautiful and I'm beyond jealous of her looks! Anyway, here's some pictures from the shoot for you to take a look at and get your confident beaten down by this gorgeous girl.
