Red Carpet Fever

Posted on: January 28th, 2014 by Madison Lake No Comments

I don’t know about you, but award season can be a bit of a snoozefest with the same few celebs winning the same few awards giving similar sounding, oft-forgotten acceptance speeches. But the one thing I never get bored of throughout this season is the red carpet fashion: the gowns, the tuxes, the hair, the jewels, the shooes! Everybody is looking their absolute sexiest, representing their personal style; something we don’t always glimpse through their on-screen characters.

The night after any award show I like to grab a glass of wine and call my sister, both of us pulling up the same New York Times or BuzzFeeed webpage on our ipads and scrolling through the red carpet photos. Calling out our personal hits & misses like our private fashion police, minus the Rivers-esque bullying.

Here is one of my favorite dresses of this season so far and one of the few that my sister and I both agreed on. The statuesque Laura Dern, all 46-years of her, poured into this slinky Cavalli dress. There to represent her own thoughtful HBO show, “Enlightened”, and to support her father’s nomination for “Nebraska”, Ms.Dern strolled the red carpet showing all the starlets how it’s done.

The Life of Liz Remembered

Posted on: March 24th, 2011 by Madison Lake No Comments

Madison Lake’s Pages is taking a moment out to honor a legend in film and in life, Elizabeth Taylor, actress, sex symbol, film goddess, HIV/Aids activist, and in more recent years, recluse.

Like a handful of screen sirens from the good old days of Hollywood, Liz Taylor impacted the life and times of her generation and many generations that followed. And she managed to outlive most of them.

Elizabeth Taylor will continue to inspire characters both in film and in books. I for one will draw on her image; her ebony hair, those mysterious dark eyes, her full, red lips, that sultry sexiness from some of her early films, when writing my stories. Watch for her, as her spirit carries on.
