I missed the Golded Globe Awards show on TV! I had to work and good thing for the internet I felt like I did not miss a thing! The Globes usually kick off the international awards season! I love red carpet fashion! For me it is really the “new” fashion show. I mean the entire world is watching and the trends of the season are shown on the red carpet. I tried my best to get lots of images for my entry.
Even if the weather was not cooperating and the must have accessory that evening was a golf umbrella I think the stars, overall “brought” it to the runway. I just love being a couch critic as much as anyone. So here are my list of fashion faves and faux pas!
Drew Barrymore I feel just gets more beautiful with age! I love this nude chifforn Versace gown as it really highlights her beauty and complexion! The silhouette is classic but the 3-d detais give it a modern touch.
I sit on the board on the Asian Cultural Council! The council’s main purpose is to find funding for artists to be sent abroad! This years main fund-raising activity is very exciting! We are going to have a major, as in MAJAAAH!, (LOL!) art auction on February 6 at the Finale Art File. There will be previews on February 4 and 5 so people can view the pieces before the auction begins.
We are currently working on the website so that people can view the art for sale online! I do hope that all the readers of my blog can help me spread the word. This is really going to benefit the artists. I love the idea of artists helping other artists! Our goal is to be able to raise enough to have at least 10 grants!
I know that this is going to be possible! Please spread the word!
ASIAN CULTURAL COUNCIL ART AUCTION ON FEBRUARY 6
Rare works by Arturo Luz, BenCab, Betsy Westendorp, Lao Lianben, Don Salubayba, Elmer Borlongan, Jon Santos, Wire Tuazon; plus 60 others will be made available at the Asian Cultural Council Art Auction on Saturday, February 6, 4pm at the Finale Art File on Pasong Tamo, Makati. Previews are on February 4 and 5.
There is a wealth of talents in this country that only need a chance to become outstanding artists. The Asian Cultural Council Philippines (ACCP) raises funds to help make this happen by providing grants for them to learn from and be exposed to other artists in Asia and in the United States.
Some noted ACCP grantees include Lucrecia Kasilag and Jose Maceda (both national artists for music); Tikoy Aguiluz (noted film maker); Jose Joya (CCP Gawad award and national artist for visual arts) and Alice Reyes (founder of Ballet Philippines) to name a few. The ACC fellowship program has supported over 600 Asian and American artist scholars since its inception.
The Finale Art File is located in the La Fuerza Building (Gate1), 2214 Pasong Tamo, Makati.
