Is it not every woman's fantasy to parade around in Super Hero boots? I've long appreciated that look, but let's be honest, thigh high boots prior to their popularity today (and I'm sure there was a time before ours where they were de rigueur--aside from the 17th Century when they were popularized by men--maybe in the 70's) were always a little suggestive. That never stopped me from wearing them though. My favorite pair of thigh-high boots were acquired in a little shop off the Piazza del Duomo in Milan. They are black, flat and suede and cost only £39, but that was over five years ago. Now that over-the-knee boots have made a resurgence, you can find pairs in a multiplicity of prices with colors that run the gamut from cognac, to ruby red, to milky white, chocolate brown and basic black.

The 67th annual Golden Globes Awards took place at the Beverly Hilton hotel tonight. Celebrities braved the rain to walk the red carpet!

As was expected, most, if not all, of the dresses were long, but there was such diversity of color!

Almost every hue was represented From Anna Paquin's and Jaime Pressly's embellished gold frocks to January Jones', Vera Farmiga's and Penelope Cruz's highly structured black gowns, to Christina Hendricks' and Nicole Kidman's draped nude goddess gowns, to Kate Hudson's architectural white dress. Cameron Diaz wore red in the form of a bias-cut Alexander McQueen, while Amy Poehler wore a fire engine red one shouldered gown.

Have you seen the December 2009 issue of Glamour Magazine? If so, then I'm sure that I'm not the only one admiring our First Lady's Necklace!

Fenton Fallon + J. Crew "Carrington" necklace, in Antique Gold, available at www.jcrew.com, $295.00
Dana Lorenz of Fenton/Fallon, created the statement necklace worn by Michelle Obama on the cover of Glamour Magazine's December issue (seen below). Fortunately for the rest of us, Dana Lorenz was in talks with J. Crew about possibly creating a version of Mrs. O's necklace for the retailer--and finalized their agreement, three days before the Glamour issue hit the stands. Apparently, neither Fenton/Fallon nor J. Crew knew that the very same necklace they intended to replicate would be worn by the First Lady! In fact, Dana Lorenz did not know that Mrs. Obama owned her necklace!
