Janelle Monáe in Carolina Herrera at the 2017 Producers Guild Awards: IN or OUT?

Posted on January 30, 2017

Why must the entertainment industry awards complex make things so difficult for two hardworking bitchy bloggers such as we, darlings? Why must they schedule several awards shows, luncheons, and various other celebrity style attention-fests all in the same weekend? We could double our number of daily posts and still have catching up to do. Still, it’s better than having nothing to post about, we suppose. You don’t want us opining on the latest Kardashian or Lohan appearance unless things are really dire.

Your eyes may see something different.

Make the call:
