Last night while watching the magic of the red carpet of the golden globes 2017 I was blown away by all the beautiful dresses and fashion that was going on but then I realize something, whats beyond all that fashion, whats beyond the beauty of all these women. But I just watched the red carpet and that was it, thinking on doing the “best dressed” post on the blog. Later that night while watching the show and hearing Viola Davis speech, Meryl Streep Speech and many others I realized that there was definitely so much more about these women than their beauty and beautiful dresses and even though I want to mention my favorite dresses from the red carpet, I really want to dedicate this post to the inspiration that I had last night hearing these iconic women talk about women empowerment, politics, art and motivation to others in the business.
I want to start with my favorite actress Viola Davis, she recently received her star on the Hollywood walk of fame and she’s rocking every single role that’s she’s on! Besides from that, her speech was beautiful and empowerment for all women. My favorite thing happened during her speech about Meryl Streep while she was presenting to her the annual Cecil B. DeMille Award and said :”You make me feel that what I have in me — my body, my face, my age — is enough” Bravo, Viola!
From Viola to Sarah Paulson. This was her fists Golden Globe win, well deserved. She won for her role as Marcia Clark in “The People vs OJ Simpson” which she totally rocked. I love the way she thank the real Marcia Clark, that inspired her role and what an amazing woman is.
Emma Stone and her beautiful acceptance speech about creativity, art and not stop believing in yourself.
Felicity Huffman that with her famous before and after photos from her getting ready to the awards showed me that you can look this good at any age, that you have to take care of yourself and that there is nothing wrong on showing how you really are and most importantly that there is nothing wrong with glamming up. If this doesn’t scream empowerment to you I don’t know what will.
Sofia Vergara and her freaking awesome sence of humor. I don’t think a lot of people got what happened during her presenting, it was a joke. I did get it because I know she is hilarious and that’s why I’m mentioning her here. Beyond her beauty, fame and freaking beautiful dress she has never change who she is and I’m sure that she never will. In her own words: #itsallaboutentertaining
Another example of being hilarious, never changing, being beautiful and succesful is Kristen Wiig. I loved her hilarious sketch with Steve Creel while presenting the best animated movie.
Tracee Ellis Ross that once again empowered women while remembering to some people that talent and beauty comes in every color. “This is for all of the women of color and colorful people whose stories, ideas and thoughts are not always considered worthy and valid and important,”
Gina Rodriguez. I need to mention Gina, she was nominated for best actress in a comedy series. She is one of my favorite actresses for her role in “Jane the Virgin”, she is also Puerto Rican, which makes me double proud of her being there. Asides from her beauty and amazing roles she is working with the Young Women’s Honors -a global platform that will discover, honor and celebrate women who demonstrate confidence, intelligence and leadership, that will inspire others to follow- (from YWM official facebook page) I freaking love her for that.
Last but definitely not least we have Meryl Streep. There are no words to describe what this woman did last night for other women and for everyone who was watching last night and everyone that is watching her speech as we speak. She was simply amazing and most amazing ending her speech by quoting her friend Carrie Fisher:” As my friend , the dear departed Princess Leia, said to me once, take your broken heart, make it into art.” You can read her full speech here . -link is from NY times-
