Sunset Boulevard

That most exciting of nights, The Academy Awards, is just around the corner and Hollywood’s elite are getting in some practice and cutting their Jimmy Choos on Oscar’s competitors: The Golden Globe and SAG Awards.
Last night’s attendees of the Screen Actors Guild Awards Ceremony appeared to take a step back in time to 1980s Miami Beach, as the red carpet was awash with the colours of a South Beach sunset. A huge trend for SS09, it looks like the 1980s are back with a vengeance.
Holly Hunter led the pack in her Reem Acra hot pink strapless gown. In danger of looking like the biggest throwback of the ball, HH kept things modern by ditching big hair and bigger jewels for low-key locks and minimal accessories.

Laura Linney beat Eva Longoria in the best coral frock category - this Miami Vice hue is set to be the colour for Spring and LL’s asymmetric Michael Kors was an 80s dream.

In a sculptural red Nina Ricci number, Claire Danes managed to look 80s retro and extremely modern all at the same time. Plus red on red is, in my book, always a good thing.

Mickey Rourke IS the 80s. And he knows it.
