Just Us or Was Modesty Totally Trending at the Golden Globes?

By at 12:52 pm


If you tuned into the 71st annual Golden Globes award last night, you may have taken notice of this year’s fashion theme: modesty.

In a trend clearly borrowed from Miss Mayim herself (who looked gorgeous in a sheer-topped, black gown), actresses like Julia Roberts, Julie Bowen, and Elisabeth Moss left more than usual to the imagination, opting for sleeved dresses with little to no cleavage (oh my!) and maximum coverage. Ms. Roberts in particular takes the “frum chic” award home, donning an oxford shirt that appeared tucked into a form-fitting black gown. In my opinion, it looked like a glorified tuxedo, but to each her own.

Two great dresses in particular were the “Frum chic in the front/’bringing sexy back’ back” look worn by actresses Cate Blanchett and Emma Watson. Blanchett looked elegant and sexy in a high-collared black, backless dress, all the while dripping in Chopard diamonds. Watson wore a red backless flowing Dior gown, which was also backless and included pretty nifty sewn in cropped trousers. Read the rest of this entry →

The Kid-Dish: Jewish Kids & Parents at the Golden Globes

By at 4:04 pm

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

– The Golden Globes were this week, and we feel comfortable mentioning that because they were chock full of celebrity Jewish parents and children, like Lena Dunham (has a Jewish mom), Daniel Day-Lewis (has a Jewish mom), Kate Hudson (has/is a Jewish mom), and Isla Fisher and Sasha Baron Cohen (both Jewish). And, of course, Mayim Bialik. (Everywhere, but there’s a good slideshow on NY Times)

– Sarah Jessica Parker was out and about with Loretta and Tabitha, both looking very cute. But the best part about this post is the commenter whose username is TabithaFan21. Tabitha has fans but Loretta doesn’t?? #Lorettaforever (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

– Drew Barrymore bravely flew with her 3-month-old daughter, Olive. Do you think people are nasty to celebrities who bring their kids on planes, or does that just happen to us regular folk? (US Weekly)

– Rachel Zoe and Skyler were spotted wearing matching stripes on Monday. I think Skyler looks better than Rachel here, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. (Daily Mail)

Checklist of Very Important Things that Happened at the Golden Globes Party

1. As I walked into the party, I spotted Warren Beatty five feet from me. Hollywood legend: check.

2. Some celebrities were smoking pot on the patio. Illicit drug use: check.

3. As I approached the red carpet, the entire bubbly cast of “Glee” came up behind me, thereby instantaneously eliminating any one photographer’s interest in taking my picture. Being humbled (trying not to think of it as upstaged!) by the awesome show that won “Best Show”: check.

4. My SPANX-like undergarments were so confounding that I came extremely close to urinating all over myself and my dress when using the facilities. Near undergarment mishap: check.

Marsden as Eddie Warwick, the cool kid who runs against Blossom for student council president.

5. I could not help saying hello to James Marsden, who guest starred on “Blossom” in our early seasons. I told him I was very happy for his success and he was lovely and kind about his fond remembrances of working on our show. Famous actor who was a fledgling actor on “Blossom” but is still a nice guy: check.

6. After passing trays and trays of lamb chops, humongous shrimp cocktail platters, whole turkeys and dead animals I could not even identify, I found a vegan pasta dish! Vegan-friendly food: check.

7. I was incredibly impressed by the live 10 person band that covered every current and past popular song amazingly. Being astounded by true artistic talent amidst a lot of hype and flash: check.

8. I had some wonderful intelligent conversations with some of the “Big Bang Theory” writers and producers. Faith in people and conversations of content existing in a sea of platitudes, plastic people, and false bravado: check.

Danes won an award for her performance in "Temple Grandin".

9. Claire Danes and I found ourselves passing each other in close proximity. She grabbed onto my arm and quietly and very sincerely told me she grew up with my show and loves me. I stammered an “I love you, too!” and watched her walk away as if I had just seen Santa Claus. Super amazing actress who I really admire being complimentary and super nice: check.

10. Clive Owen was not there. I really thought last night might have been the night he and I met, fell in love, and began a lengthy difficult journey towards divorcing our spouses, breaking up our childrens’ stable homes, and living an ecstatic and highly romantic life together. Reality intact: check.
