Screen Actors Guild Awards

Hello everyone,
I am back in Los Angeles for the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Today I had the privelege of prepping hands and feet of two great actresses. Gabourey Sidibe stars as Precious in a very very powerful first time perfomance. Tonight she is wearing Ruby Red Slippers on her hands and feet to her first time at the SAGS. Next I prepped birthday girl and star of Law and Order SVU Mariska Hargitay. She wore a stunning Vera Wang gown in a sort of raspberry. We chose Lady is a Tramp (sanguine red) on both her nails and toes. She looked major! The trend I am seeing is matching your fingers and your toes-- old school!

heading back to NY tomorrow.
Grammy awards next week. I am racking up the air miles already this year!

Day after Globes.
One of the fun slash stressful parts of my job is working in award show season.
Fun because I am working with beautiful, talented, fashion forward actresses and part of the process of putting their total look together down to their toes. The stress comes in when I am trying to get from one place to another safely in crazy LA traffic-- and yesterday was complicated with rain.
All's well that ends well and in the end the gorgeous gals I worked with all rocked different glam looks on the red carpet.
Penelope Cruz keeping it clean and simple wearing Night and Day (sheer pinked beige) to compliment her glowing bronzed skin.
Marion Cotillard wearing Don't Tell Mama (mood ring blue/green). Marion wore a deep green very sexy Dior gown and wanted her nails and feet to match while being chic and modern.
Kate Hudson wore a stunning white Marchesa gown and we wanted to steer away from anything with a possible bridal feeling on the nails. Stylist guru Rachel Zoe chose Lady is a Tramp (classic sanguine red) and it was just the thing to 'finish' Kate's look.
