Let’s be real—Beyonce is not known for her acting skills.
The look on her face says “love, love, love”.

This is the outcome of morphing Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence together.
Wow.
That’s the only word you need when looking at this. 
Can they have babies? Please?

Basically, I love Lizzy Caplan. 
That love began with Mean Girls; was solidified with the first season of True Blood; and turned into forever with her relationship with Matthew Perry.
She looked stunning at the Emmys and I removed her from my initial post because I felt I needed a male presence but have since regretted my decision ever since. Therefore, I am dedicating this post to the effervescent and lovely Lizzy Caplan.

quote He’s really hot, that’s why I didn’t bring him. He’s too hot, he’s too tall, he takes up a lot of space. He’s too sexy!

This may be the greatest thing I’ve ever seen.
Sure, I have said this many times before but this time I mean it.
This is Blue Ivy dancing to her mom’s performance at the MTV VMA’s.
At the end of her performance, when the crowd was cheering and clapping, little Blue shouted “Yay, Mommy!”
EPIC.

Awards show fashion is back.

Last night’s Emmy Awards, the “biggest night in television”, proved there were some definite themes amongst the red carpet goers.

To be honest, I felt the fashion was a little lackluster with too many similar shades and silhouettes. But here are a few of my favorites.

My personal highlight of the night has to be Sarah Hyland.  I love how she looked youthful yet still elegant. From head-to-toe she was spot on.

Love that Hayden Panettiere and Amy Poehler brought a little sparkling glam, when so few others did.

Red was a hot color on the carpet but I think January Jones and Claire Danes made it more high-fashion and less redundant. I mean the stars do walk on a RED carpet.

How can one not love Matt Bomber? He looks gorgeous in a tux. The Sarah Paulson pick may not be for everyone but at least it was a little different.

Sofia looks stunning in white, but let’s be honest, when does she not look stunning? Another lady in white was Kristen Wiig, who has never looked better.

My last fashion fave will be a bit of a surprise since she’s so much more conservative than the usual red carpet walker. Mayim Bialik never looked better in the amazing royal blue frock.

Congrats to all of last night’s winners! I really need to start watching Breaking Bad

The world has lost one of it’s great lights. You know someone is truly special when they have impacted everyone’s life positively by bringing joy and laughter.

I can only aspire to bring levity and smiles to those around me, yet you did it for the world.

Thank you for giving us what you couldn’t find for yourself.

For anyone who says that perfection is unattainable, please look at this picture. 
Aside: Perhaps no one says that and I am just pretending it’s an commonplace colloquialism. 
Jordan Catalano and Troy Bolton. Two teenage heartthrobs. 
In the interest of full-disclosure, I have to admit that I did need to Google Zac’s name in High School Musical but the sentiment does remain the same, despite my infatuation with Zac coming later in life (think post 17 Again). The fact that there’s clearly dribble on Zac’s shirt just adds to the majesty.
It’s a good day to like men.
