Awards season kicked off on Sunday, January 8 with the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards. This year I was stunned at how many amazing red carpet looks I fell in love with. Last night’s looks ranged from sexy and princess-like, to modern tuxedo suits and elegant fitted silhouettes.
Here are my favorite looks of the night and the designers they wore.
Mandy Moore in Naeem Khan
Ruth Negga in Louis Vuitton
Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham
Trends of the night included plunging necklines and women who weren’t afraid to wear suits. I absolutely adored Mandy Moore‘s Naeem Khan cape dress, she looked angelic. Ruth Negga has become one of my favorites and that shimmering Louis Vuitton dress was like liquid gold! I personally believe that Kristen Bell and her Jenny Packham dress deserved way more attention!
For the past couple of months I’ve been trying to find the perfect travel handbag. The requirements that I have include it being a satchel or cross body, have a zipper and can fit a water bottle (I’ll need to stay hydrated while sight seeing).
The biggest problem is to find something that is affordable and durable, but also chic and goes with everything. I checked out some sites, including Coach, Marc Jacobs and Rebecca Minkoff, to find designer bags with potential – and under $500.
Coach – These four bags range from $247 to $325, with the Prairie Satchel coming in a variety of colors.

My girl Victoria Beckham is launching her Estée Lauder collection in the U.S. and the U.K. on Sept. 13. The fashion designer and ex Spice Girl finally revealed the line’s first look, and you can get a sneak peek right here.
“I was very specific about what I wanted. It was about the must-have items that I felt everybody should have in their makeup bag, things that are really quite difficult to find because I know, I’ve searched,” Beckham told WWD.
Eugenio Derbez has already achieved success in Latin America and is considered a household name. The actor, producer and director recently received his star on the coveted Hollywood Walk of Fame, an honor he dedicated to not only his family but to his Latino fans that have supported his career throughout the years.
Speaking with the Miracles From Heaven actor, I asked Derbez what is the dichotomy of already being a huge star in Mexico and now transitioning over to Hollywood.
“It’s hard when you come from another culture and another language. Trying to be funny in English is different,” the Mexican actor stated. “I don’t feel the same. It’s like I’m a different person. Every time I try to act or try to be funny in English it’s different. I sometimes need weeks to feel comfortable with the material. But the first time I read a script I felt so uncomfortable. So I need to work a lot. I need to make it mine. I really need to focus because it’s another culture, another language, it’s everything. It’s hard.”
While it may be difficult to get a jump-start in Tinseltown, Derbez stated that he has an understanding for what Latinos in the US want and what the industry should take in consideration.
The Maine released the music video for their latest single “Am I Pretty” from their album “American Candy.” The Arizona-based quintet send a powerful message about self-love and embracing the qualities that make you unique and different.
The five minute video starts with a diverse group of people talking about incidents in their life when they were criticized, told they weren’t good enough and other obstacles that they have had to endure. We then see lead-singer John O’Callaghan, Kennedy Brock, Pat Kirch, Jared Monaco and Garrett Nickelsen, all dressed in blue suits, setting up to start the song.
“Acting is not instant magic. There’s hard work behind each scene that allows the magic to appear,” admits model turned actress Stephanie Sigman.
Born in Ciudad de Obregón, Sonora, Mexico, Sigman began her career at the age of 16 as a model only then to transition to secondary roles in film and television series such as Cambio de Vida and Los Minodo. Her breakout moment arrived when she was chosen as the lead in the drama Miss Bala. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011 to positive reviews. It followed the story of an aspiring Mexican beauty queen who upon witnessing drug and gang-related murders was held hostage by the cartel to transport drug money across the U.S. border.
At the age of 22 Natalie Martinez landed her first role on the small screen in the short-lived series Fashion House. Fast-forward nine years later and the actress has a slew of films and credits to her name.
She began modeling at the age of 15 and was handpicked to be Jennifer Lopez’s brand ambassador in 2002. Martinez then went on to star in Justin Timberlake’s music video for “Señorita,” as well as in videos for Sean Paul and Pitbull and Marc Anthony.
In 2008 she worked alongside Jason Statham and Tyrese in the action flick Death Race. In 2011 she starred in Magic City Memoirs, a story based on the life of director Aaron J. Salgado that tells the tale of three friends in Miami whose lives are put in danger after they indulge in reckless behavior days before their graduation. The drama was produced by Andy Garcia and Salgado and received the Pursuit of Perfection Award during the Miami Film Festival.
Born in Mexico, Diego Boneta knew at a very young age that he wanted to be a performer. At the age of 12 he audition for the children’s reality TV show Codigo F.A.M.A., where after conquering a series of challenges made it to the Top 5.
Boneta made his television debut in the Spanish-language children’s telenovela Alegrijes y Rebujos in 2013. He later starred in Misión S.O.S. and played a small role in Don Darvelio’s Secret. He catapulted to success after portraying a high school student named Rocco, in Univision’s hit telenovela Rebelde. The series gave Boneta the opportunity to focus on a music career, subsequently he released his first self-titled album and toured with the newly formed musical group RBD.
