In honor of the 74th Golden Globes this Sunday evening, I wanted to put together a post that paid homage to the world of cinema and Old Hollywood. I find a lot of my design inspiration from films and would definitely consider myself to be a cinephile. There is just something so magical about Old Hollywood that I find myself always using that as the starting point for my design inspiration. It all started when I used Old Hollywood glamour as the source of my inspiration to design my red satin mermaid gown for Junior prom in high school. I've been inspired ever since!

I wanted to create a gown for Courtney inspired by Nicole Kidman's red bow gown at the 2007 Academy Awards. It has always been one of my favorite gowns and I decided it was finally time to bring it to life for a special friend. So Courtney and I headed to the Rivoli Theater in downtown Cedarburg to bring our red evening gowns to life with the magic of cinema. I cannot wait for you all to see the looks revealed on Friday!

Until then, what are some of your favorite red carpet looks? What about favorite films or Old Hollywood stars? Any plans to host a Golden Globes viewing party? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
