My Golden Globes Best Dressed List

Award show season is currently under way. All I really care about is who's frock is being worn or wearing whom and leave the recognition part to the rest of the world.

Though there weren't many "shockers" to me this year, I must admit that I am overall impressed by the sophistication and appropriateness of most of the gowns.

Here are some of my favourites. All images from Vogue, Huffington Post and Daily Mail

When I first saw Emma Watson in Dior my immediate thought was "is she wearing pants under that?" I have nothing against that, definitely cool and different.

Then I saw the back and everything made sense.

I would flip this dress around and wear a black tube body con under neath it all.

This is a great dress that has that playful edge yet a quite elegance that suits her so well.

My next pick is Paula Patton in Charlotte Olympia

I am such a sucker for large ruffly details. A dress like this can over power someone, but Paula definitely wore the dress instead of having the dress wear her.

A good little black dress is a must in anyone's wardrobe. This custom Lanvin is the ultimate little black gown. Emma Roberts looks perfect in this dress perfectly made for her.

I wouldn't mind any of these dress either.

Peplum and lace? Yes and yes please. Leslie Mann's petite frame is perfect for a dress like this.

Of course you can't forgot Sophia Vergara. The drama in this Zac Posen ultra gown matches her rocking figure amazingly,

But deep down I am more of a color girl.

I picked this Narciso Rodriguez especially because how figure flattering it was on Julia Louis Dreyfus. Anything that stopped me in my scrolling tracks is a winner of a dress.

Similar color, but a different feel. Lupita Nyongo's Ralph Lauren cape crusader number is totally on trend.

At first I wasn't so sure about this next dress. It's probably Amber Heard's hair and makeup combo being a little harsh? But upon second inspection, the intricate detailing and the exaggerated slit won me over.

The bejeweled detailing is leading the pack this year, showing up in all types of garments. When pair so seamlessly with a stunner like this, Gucci and Margot Robbie definitely won my heart.

Kate Beckingsale is usually a staple on any best dressed list. Being such a stunner herself, it's hard to mess up with her. That's why I am so happy to see her in this glamorous Zuhair Murad.

The next gown is another metallic pick. Softer, more feminine and tradition stands Michelle Dockery in this Oscar de la Renta number. The subtle hi-low is doing everything for me.

I also really like seeing a more "down to earth" brand representing so well on the red carpet.

Maria Menounos is rocking this fusia BCBG gown. The cut outs, the color and the fit are all perfect on this quintessential peak of spring and summer.

Finally, I want to end this list with a safe and predictable pick. The always effortlessly flawless Kate Blanchette caught my eye first with her Armani Prive gown.

I love the delicate detail of this gown. It looks lighter than air and seems to hug her body in all the right places.

I hope I can graduate to that level of sophistication one day.

Celebrity Doppelgänger Round 2

Today is Friday, I think the common saying has a T a G and an I in front of it.

I am on my way up to Whistler with Michael. Finally, a trip together with him.

While we are enjoying our scenic drive, I would like to share with you another batch of Celebrity Doppelgangers.

My last round I did not include any girls. I find with make-up hair and wardrobe, sometimes when a girl looks like another girl, it's not always because of their phenotypes. But this time I am going to start off with a girl.

Dawn Olivieri, Lydia in Heroes, Beautiful woman, Hollywood actress, sexy woman

Dawn Olivieri

I first saw her in Heroes as Lydia, this tattooed beauty.

Dawn Olivieri, Lydia in Heroes, Beautiful woman, Hollywood actress, sexy woman

At first I thought it was her.

Tricia Helfer, Beautiful woman, Hollywood actress, sexy woman

Tricia Helfer

Yes their eyes are different colour. But come on, they look similar.

Dawn Olivieri in red, Beautiful woman, Hollywood actress, sexy woman

See!

Dawn Olivieri and Tricia Helfer side by side, Celebrity look-a-like, Beautiful woman, Hollywood actress, sexy woman

Okay, don't crucify me with defense of how they don't look like at all blah blah. Pretend you didn't know it was Dawn Olivieri in Heroes for one second and watch those Lydia episodes again. You will be struck with a feeling of Tricia. See, that's why I don't like to do girls, make up changes everything.

But the next pair looks much more similar to each other.

This one was so easy! I just had to google their names and google images did the work for me!

From this website I got this photo.

Linda Evangelista and Mila Jovovich side by side, look-a-like, celebrity doppleganger, Celebrity look-a-like, Beautiful woman, Hollywood actress, sexy woman

Which is more than enough to display their striking similarities. I love both these ladies as they are both so beautiful and full of spunk.

It's no wonder they are both successful fashion and beauty models. Look at those perfect faces.

This next pair was discovered from Netflix again. I was watching the series Firefly and noticed that hey this guy totally looks like someone else.

Nathan Filion, captian Mel from Firefly, Handsome man, hollywood actor, hot male, good looking guy

Nathan Fillion totally looks like him!

Jason Bateman, Handsome man, hollywood actor, hot male, good looking guy

Jason Bateman.

Especially when they are both moving. Once again, the webverse agrees with me.

From Hey, this looks like that I present you their side by side.

Are you even different people! Looks like we have another Denny vs Javier situation.

Next up it's a pair of dudes. I first did not know they were different people.

Recently I watched Transamerica and saw this.

Kevin Zegers in Transamerica, Handsome man, hollywood actor, hot male, good looking guy

I thought to myself, you go Zac Efron for taking on such a daring role. Long ways since your Highschool Musical days.

Zac Efron, Handsome man, hollywood actor, hot male, good looking guy

Then the credits rolled and I was like he is who?!?! Who is Kevin Zegers.

Wow do they ever look alike!

Kevin is three years Zac's senior and seriously, Zac, once you lose your boyish baby looks with the advancement of age you are going to looks exactly like Kevin Zegers.

Finally, I have something special for you guys. These guys do actually really look like each other, but they sure do merge together to make one person.

Enter, David Schwimmer, or better known as Ross on Friends.

David Schwimmer, Ross from Friends, Handsome man, hollywood actor, hot male, good looking guy

And then, Clive Owen.

Clive Owen, Handsome man, hollywood actor, hot male, good looking guy

What do these two guys have in common? Other than they are both Hollywood A-list Actors and fairly good looking males?

Well, this guy.

Dylan McDermott, Handsome man, hollywood actor, hot male, good looking guy

Dylan McDermott

He looks like the love child of Clive Owen and David Schwimmer. It's like those two merged to form this guy.

Dylan has David's smile and the shape of David's eyes. But the color of Clive's eyes. Also his demeanor is like a combination of the two of them as well.

The bridge, has been found!

Have a great weekend.

Celebrity Doppelgänger

Ewan McGregor!

Ewan McGregor, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Relax, I don't think I look like him at all.

But I did find his Celebrity doppelganger!

Michael Fassbender, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

No that's not him again, that's Michael Fassbender. The guy in Inglourious Basterds, Shame and most recently Prometheus.

Actually, the similarities between the two actors is blaring in Prometheus. The whole time I find myself wondering, I didn't think Obi Wan Kenobi is in this movie? But I guess he is.

See!

Now we have to rewind a little bit to a few days ago.

I just started watching Lost, yes yes, that's so a few years ago. But that doesn't change the fact that the show is epic!

In the show, this guy plays Sawyer, Josh Holloway.

Which at first I thought was this guy, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jamie Lannister from Game of Thrones, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

He plays Jamie Lannister in an entirely different but also epic series, Game of Thrones.

I know, they don't really look that alike in their head shots.

But how about now!?

Especially since they are both in character get up, these might as well be the same people. Lost was filmed a few years in the back, so it's natural to assume that Sawyer could have aged into Jamie.

Well, of course two sets of doppelgangers do not a post make. So when Ewan and Michael came along, my plan to do this post has gotten a good push.

Then I thought back at who else I have thought looks almost identical to the other.

First I have these two heartthrobs.

Casper Van Dien, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb, Rico from Starship troopers

Timothy Olyphant, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

I think they actually look much similar when they are in motion. They have almost the same demeanor and body language.

But really, the clincher are these two fine gentlemen.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan from Greys Anatomy, Denny Duquette, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Javier Bardem, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

No they are not the same person twice, one smiling a smaller smile and one smiling a bigger one..

But I bet all you are thinking of is Javier Bardem right?

Or if you are a Grey's Anatomy fan, Denny Duquette, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

I probably don't really need to do a side by side, but here it is anyway.

Javier Bardem and Jeffrey Dean Morgan side by sdie comparison, Celebrity look alike, celebrity doppelganger, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Now these two are carbon copies of each other for sure! So Penelope, don't worry if you break your current one, there is a backup standing by.

Actually, I am not quite convinced that these are two separate people. I think it's all a clever hoax! I bet this person's actual name is Javier Jeffrey Dean Bardem Morgan.

Finally, my last set is dedicated to videogame nerds everywhere.

If they ever make Mass Effect into a live action movie, I know who is a dead ringer to play male default Sheppard.

Matthew Fox, actor from Lost, Dr. Shephard, Jack Shephard, male actors, hunks, good looking male actor, heart throb

Matthew Fox from Lost.

Don't believe me, here's them side by side.

Matthew Fox from Lost and Commander Sheppard from Mass Effect side by side comparison, look alike

Here's one more thing, the Matthew Fox's character name in Lost is Shephard! Shephard, Sheppard? Could not be more perfect.

I am actually not the only person that thinks so. This person does, too!

Which lead me to this conclusion. The Dr. Shephard on the island of Lost is the forefather of commander Sheppard in Mass Effect.

You're welcome, I know I just answered so many questions about where commander Shep came from.

What does this post have to do with fashion!? Nothing really, but I like to take detours sometimes.

Finding people that look like each other is a hobby of mine.
Happy weekend.
