With the 20th anniversary of 'Friends' this week and the unavoidable 90s influence at Fashion Week this autumn, I present you with my Rachel Green 'Get the Look' post. Every day when I get home from work I have dinner with 'Friends' on Comedy Central, I haven't been able to ignore the similarity between Rachel's style and how girl's are dressing this year.

The Mary Tyler Moore Show

I’ve recently finished my final year of university… and one of my modules was American Television since 1950 so when revising I came across ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’. The Mary Tyler Moore had great historical effects on feminism as it was the first television show ever to show an independent childless non-married woman who wasn’t reliant on a male at all. I really enjoyed watching all of the episodes, and especially loved Mary’s fashion.

Best dressed at the Kids Choice Awards 2012

Selena Gomez in Dolce & Gabbana dress, Cesare Paciotti heels, and a Jennifer Zeuner necklace Despite being completely jealous (being an avid belieber) I must admit that Selena Gomez was my best dressed of the night. The two piece ensemble was taken straight from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 run way.  During the show, Selena was presented with the Favourite Female Singer and Favourite TV Actress awards, and luckily enough, unlike Bieber, managed to avoid the slime for the night. The two-tone crystal embellished skirt was also chosen by Megan Fox when she appeared on Jay Leno last month. Who wore it best? Selena recently tweeted that she will be answering fan questions in a new video blog. Post your questions to twitter with #askSELENA

Taylor Swift in Maria Lucia Hohan dress with Nicholas Kirkwood heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery.
Although the dress may be a little too fairy like for my personal taste, i still think Taylor Swift looked stunning in this Maria Lucia Hohan dress. I also felt her hair and makeup matched perfectly. The whole outfit harmonised perfectly as she wont the ‘Big Help’ award, and as she accepted the award in this floaty cream gown, she almost seemed angel like!  Her Nicholas Kirkwood heels matched perfectly with the whole outfit, and if your interested in buying them you can get them from here.

Emma Stone in Antonio Berardi top and skirt, Alejandro Ingelmo shoes, a Fendi bag, and Irene Neuwirth jewelry.
Lucky 23 year old Emma Stone arrived at the Kid’s Choice Award on Saturday with her lovely British co-star and boyfriend Andrew Garfield. The two looked cute as ever as they presented an award together. With her new blonde her, Emma looked beautiful in her dress taken from part of Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 collection. Emma and Andrew are preparing for the promotion of the new Spiderman film, in which Emma plays Gwen Stacy, Spidermans new love interest.

Golden Globes 2012 best & worst dressed.

Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang & Harry Winston jewellery. Despite having missed out on ‘Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy’ to Jessica Lang, Sofia Vergara was still my winner of the night. My favourite Colombian comedy actress walked the red carpet at the 69th annual Golden Globes last night in an astonishing curve grabbing, mermaid-esque strapless gown. In a red carpet interview, Sofia explained that she felt “like 5 million bucks” in her midnight blue Vera Wang ensemble. Sofia went on to have a successful night stealing the show with her memorable acceptance speech for ‘Best TV Series’ on behalf of the rest of the Modern Family cast. The native Colombian accepted the award in Spanish explaining that as the prize was international, they will be receiving it in two languages, and received a fantastic reception from the audience.

Lea Michele in Marchesa and Lorraine Schwartz Jewellery: After Lea’s successful night in her white all-fringe Marchesa dress at the People’s Choice awards on the 11th of January 2012, she continued the trend wearing a gown from the Marchesa Spring 2012 Collection, at the Golden Globes last night. Michele - along with the rest of the Glee cast - were all there to support Glee’s nomination for ‘Best TV Series’, that unfortunately lost out to Modern Family. The Glee cast however were not left disheartened  as Lea went on to tweet her congratulations on twitter after the show “Congrats to everyone who was nominated and won tonight! Especially the amazing cast of ModernFamily!” @msleamichele

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace & Christian Louboutin Clutch: Angelina - who attended the Golden Globes last night after her film ‘In The Land of Blood and Honey’ was nominated in the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ category as well as in support of her husband Brat Pitt, who was nominated for ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture’ for his role in ‘Moneyball’ - bedazzled us all in her red and cream Atelier Versace number. She paired it with a Christian Louboutin clutch and wore dark red lipstick to finish the look. Despite Brad Pitt losing out to George Clooney and ‘In The Land of Blood and Honey’ failed to win, Angelina was definitely the talk of the night. 

also loved…

Sarah Hyland Dolce & Gabbana, Nicole Kidman Versace, Ariel Winter Dolce & Gabbana, Shailene Woodley Marchesa.
You may be wondering why I have included Ariel Winter in the purple Dolce & Gabbana number amongst these other exquisite gowns. However, being 13 years old I feel Ariel’s dress was really age appropriate and fun. I can imagine it being quite the task to style a 13 year old without seeming too babyish or too grown up and I feel this dress was the perfect choice.  

and the worst…

Natalie Portman Lanvin, Sarah Michele Gellar Monique Lhuillier, Freda Pinto Prada, Julianna Margulies Naeem Khan.
Julianna Margulies once again makes it into my worst dressed list in a tight fitting unflattering gown that frankly reminded me of some kind of slimly serpent/monster whilst Natalie Portman disappointed me in this Lanvin badly fitted bright pink dress, which annoyingly clashed against the red carpet, however I must mention how great she looks after becoming a new mom.

…what a woman
