Recipe

Roasted Corn Pancakes with Spring Pea Puree Poached Egg with Roasted Corn Aioli

Spring Pea Puree (make the day before and reheat)

2 TBSP Olive Oil

1 shelled fresh or frozen peas

2 cloves garlic

1 small onion chopped

1/4 cup broth (chicken or vegetable broth)

1 TBSP Chopped Parsley

2 TBSP Lemon Juice

2 tsp. fresh mint leaves (1 tsp. fresh mint chopped)

2 TBSP Cold Butter

Sea Salt/Ground Pepper

In a sauce pan over medium heat oil until hot. Add the peas, onions, and garlic until softened. Fresh peas 1 to 2 minutes froze peas 3 to 4 minutes. Add the broth cook until the peas are tender. Remove from the heat add the parsley.

Place in the a blender or use an immersion blender. Add the butter blend till puree. Add the mint, dash of salt and pepper blend well.

Roasted Corn Aioli (can be made the day before)

1 TBSP lemon juice

1 Tsp. lemon zest

2 cloves of garlic

2 eggs

2 TBSP Parsley

1 Tsp. Dijon mustard

1/4 Tsp. Salt

1/8 Tsp. cayenne pepper

1 cup olive oil more may be needed

2 ears of roasted corn (remove kernels from cob)

Combine all ingredients except for the olive oil and corn kernels in a bowl of a food process until smooth. Slowly add the olive oil through the feeding tube while processor is running. This will create a consistency of mayonnaise when all the oil is added. It may need a little more to reach the consistency needed. Transfer to a bowl and fold in the roasted corn in the aioli. Can be store for up to a week in the refrigerator.

Corn Pancakes

3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cornmeal

1 Tsp. baking powder

3/4 Tsp. salt

1 TBSP sugar

1 large egg separated (yolk slightly beaten) (egg white beaten stiff)

1 1/4 cup buttermilk

1 TBSP Canola or Olive Oil

1 jalapeno seeded, deveined, and chopped if heat desired)

1 Tsp. cilantro

1 ear roasted corn (remove kernels from cob)

1 Tsp. butter for cooking

Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk together the egg yolk, buttermilk, and oil in a medium bowl. Mix dry ingredients well with wet ingredients. Stir in corn. Gently fold in whipped egg.

Add a pat of butter to a griddle. Heat over medium heat. When the surface is hot pour 1/4 cup of batter to form 5 inch pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the top surface. Flip and cook the other side until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.

Poached Eggs (can use a medium over egg, yolk needs to be runny)

6 Eggs

2 TBSP vinegar/rice vinegar

Bring a large pot of water to almost a boil. Add the vinegar, which will help the eggs set.

Swirl the simmering water, and then gently crack each egg into a small bowl and release right above the surface of the water. This is very important in order to present them from breaking and to achieve proper consistency.

Remove the pot from the heart, cover and let stand until the egg whites are fully cooed and the egg looks like a smooth ball about 4 minutes. You want the yolk to be runny.

Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel lined plate.

To serve place the corn pancake on a serving plate, dollop about 1 TBSP of spring pea puree, top with poached egg (over medium egg) drizzle with roasted corn aioli. Top with sprigs of mint and black pepper.

Note you can make variations on this recipe

You can use mashed avocados in place of the peas

Add smoked salmon, Canadian Bacon, or half slices of bacon placed on top of pea puree or avocados.

Enjoy.

Vegan Dinner for the 77th Golden Globes

Vegan Dinner for the 77th Golden Globes

Vegan Dinner for the 77th Golden Globes. Setting a dynamic dinner for the elite of Hollywood is always a challenge. This year for the first time the Golden Globes has asked the Beverly Hilton chefs to create a completely plant-based menu.

Vegan Golden Globes Dinner 4chion Lifestyle
Menu Golden Globe Awards

Vegan Menu Decision

The last year we have seen an increase in plant-based food from the Impossible and Awesome Burger. “For the first time the meal served to our guests will be entirely plant-based, a way to focus awareness on the need to countenance sustainable lifestyles as our world moves towards climate and environmental insecurity.” The menu has no meat or dairy in any dish. The Golden Globes takes the challenge and brings a star-studded menu.

King Oyster Mushrooms Vegan Dinner

Vegan Menu

The celebrities attending the Golden Globes this year will find a glamourous filling dinner. The menu includes:

  • The appetizer is chilled golden beet soup. This is prepared with shaved candy-striped beets, citrus oil, pistachio, micro chervil, and amaranth
  • The entrée will be “scallops” made from king oyster mushrooms, served with wild-mushroom risotto, roasted baby purple, and green brussels sprouts, globe carrots, and pea tendrils.
  • The dessert is a “Vegan Opera Dome,” with choco brilliance, praline gunaja crumble, caramelized hazelnuts, and passion crispy. 

Vegan Menu Changes

Executive pastry chef Thomas Henzi discusses making a beautiful cake without the use of gelatin, eggs, milk, or butter. This is a completely plant-based pastry. “It is a bit different when coming to pastries. You have to always learn new things,” Henzi states.

Executive chef Matthew Morgan says, “It is exciting to be a part of it. The statement that it is making is extremely important.” The menu looks to be as fancy as years past and the celebrities should have plenty to eat and drink.

Emmys’® Governors Ball ~ Brilliance in Motion

Emmys’® Governors Ball ~ Brilliance in Motion

Sunday is the 71st Emmys® Prime Time hostless award ceremony. The nominees and winners will be honored with an after-party, Brilliance in Motion, at the L.A. LIVE Event Deck. This will be an evening of exceptional food, talent, and drinks. You can even enjoy a glamourous evening at home.

Home Entertaining for the Emmys®

Emmys® Brilliance Party At Home

Entertaining is such always fun. There is no better time than the Emmys®. Celebrate your favorite actor/actress, streaming shows, and mini-series.

Create a great time that involves your senses. This will engage your guests. The food is one way to really bring this to light. You can create great courses that bring all five senses to the table (recipes at the end).

Decorating is always a lot of fun. The Governors Ball is using a rich palette of eggplant purple, magenta, coral, red, and Emmy gold! These are great colors for your invitations, table accents, and backdrops use scarfs or sheer fabrics.

Add fountains for just an added touch of sound. Crystals are a perfect addition to the table setting and capture the light from candles. Farmers’ Markets have beautiful flowers to use as a nice pop of color around the room. Add extra large pillows that can be used as sitting for the guest to sit while enjoying the show.

Have the evening be the formal attire. Then make a budget for the amount one can spend on the purchase of formal evening wear. Then have a golden trophy for the winner.

Gift bags for your guests as they leave is a nice surprise. You can include a personalized label bottle of wine (in Chandler AZ Down Time Wines creates personal labels), Fuji water, Lindt chocolates, and an Emmy® of their own.

Emmys® Governors Ball Theme

This event is one big celebration covering three evenings of Emmys® nominees and winners. This menu, decor, and drinks set with the theme. “The theme of Brilliance in Motion reflects both the extraordinary talent and creativity of the people and productions we honor at the Emmys®, and the vibrant experience we’ve designed for this year’s Governors Ball,” said Governors Ball Committee Co-Chair Halina Siwolop.

Emmys® Recipes

Hor d’oeuvres
KOBE BEEF MEATBALLS WITH ROASTED TOMATO SAUCE AND
CREAMY BECHAMEL

Serves 16
2# Ground Kobe Beef
1# Ground Veal (can be substituted with ground pork as needed)
3 C Toasted Ciabatta bread
1 C Whole milk
2 T Ground Fennel Seed
2 T Ground Caraway Seed
2 T Garlic Powder
1 T Onion Powder
¼ C Salt
¼ C Chopped Parsley
¼ C Chopped Basil
METHOD: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. With a knife, remove the crust of ciabatta bread and tear the
remaining bread into small pieces. Drizzle the torn beard with olive oil and toast in oven until lightly
golden brown. While the bread toasts, mix the ground beef, veal, and all the dry spices in a large bowl.
When the bread is toasted and dry, remove from oven and allow to cool. Once the bread is cool enough to handle, crumble the bread into a separate bowl and cover with the whole milk; set aside until milk has been fully absorbed by the ciabatta. When the bread is fully hydrated, combine the bread mixture with the beef mixture, and add the fresh parsley and basil. Mix well by hand until fully incorporated. Form the mixture into 2oz balls and place onto a baking tray. Bake the meatballs in a hot oven until dark golden brown and fully caramelized, about 10 minutes. Once baked, immerse the meatballs into the tomato sauce completely and allow to simmer until fully cooked. Once cooked through the meatballs are ready to
eat but can be left in the simmer sauce to be served later. Serve warm with an ample drizzle of the bechamel sauce.
TOMATO SAUCE:
¼ C Extra Virgin olive oil
8 cloves Garlic, finely sliced for minced
½ EA White onion, finely diced
½ C Dry white wine
12 Leaves basil, chiffonade
1 can San Marzano tomatoes, crushed
1 t ground black Pepper
1 T Kosher salt
½ T Chili flake
METHOD: In a heavy-bottomed cooking pot, warm olive oil over low heat. Once the oil is warm add the
sliced garlic and diced onion and allow to cook for 5 minutes, stirring often to ensure the onion and garlic
does not burn. When the onion and garlic are soft and fragrant, carefully add the white wine and reduce
to ¼. After the wine is reduced add the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer, stirring often, until the
sauce is thickened and smooth, approximately 1 hour. Keep the heat on low and allow the sauce to simmer
slowly for best results.
BECHAMEL:
1 C Dry white wine
4 EA Thyme sprigs
2 EA Bay leaves, fresh if available
4 EA Garlic cloves, crushed
1 EA Shallot, sliced
1 tsp black peppercorn
¼ C All-purpose flour
¼ C Unsalted butter
½ C Whole milk
½ C Heavy cream
METHOD: In a heavy-bottomed saucepot place wine, thyme, bay leaves, garlic, shallot, and black
peppercorns, and simmer on low. Reduce the mixture to ¼ of the original volume. Once reduced, strain
the mixture and place the wine back into the cooking pot. Allow the wine to continue to reduce until
almost evaporated. Roughly chop the butter and add to the wine. Keeping the heat on low, allow butter to
fully melt and then whisk the flour into the butter and wine mixture to start the roux. Continue to whisk and
cook the roux until the smell of raw flour is gone, approximately ten minutes. Combine the whole milk and
heavy cream and slowly whisk into the roux watching for any lumps that may form. Allow to simmer for another 10 minutes, adding more milk if bechamel becomes too thick.

  1. Combine the brown sugar, water, and salt in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, place the pan on the stove over medium heat, cook until the caramel is dark, takes about 14 minutes.
  2. Standing back with caution add the cream and milk to the caramel. This will make the mixture seize up at first, but if you keep whisking and let it heat back up, it will combine. Bring the mixture back to boil, then turn down the heat to medium.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and cornstarch.
  4. Temper the caramel mixture with eggs yolks and cornstarch by adding a cup caramel mix to the eggs mixture, whisking constantly, then pour the egg mixture back into the pan.
  5. Increase the heat to bring this mixture to a boil and keep whisking as the custard thickens from the cornstarch, should take two minutes.
    6 Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter.
  6. Strain the custard through a fine strainer to remove any big lumps that might have formed and portion the custard into ramekins.
  7. Cover the ramekins with plastic wrap and chill the custard for a least 4 hours…it’s best when you make a day ahead

Barbecue Time

Barbecue Time

There is nothing like a great barbecue with family, friends, and neighbors. Barbecuing techniques include smoking, roasting or baking, braising and grilling. We traveled across the US looking for the best.

Sugarfire Smokehouse Barbecue

St. Louis is known for its arch and barbecue. Today I enjoy the meal with my sister Cherie. This being a late Sunday afternoon we realize that many locations are not open, but find one near the ball field, SugarFire SmokeHouse BBQ!

This is an award-winning restaurant under Chef Mike Johnson has studied with Myron Mixon, cooked with Emeril Lagasse and Charlie Trotter. It was a great experience of community, exceptional food (sweet potatoes the best) and BBQ pork and salmon.

St. Louis BBQ is grilled then sauced instead of dry rubbing, slow cooking over indirect heat. St. Louis is the top consumer of bar-be-cue sauce. The sauce is tomato-based and sweeter. The coffee BBQ sauce is tangy and sweet. This is the top area for pork steaks.

Mission Barbecue

Williamington NC Vacation 4Chion Lifestyle d
Mission BBQ Wilmington NC

Always looking for good BBQ traveling across the country. Each area has its own special BBQ. Wilmington’s Mission BBQ is American and traditional to the area. This place brings the flavors of the region to dinner. Enjoying collard greens made with tomatoes, mac-n-cheese, and green beans with bacon, brisket and NC Style pulled pork with the vinegar BBQ (this food tradition is from original settlers, African slaves on plantations and modern ones). This is an Eastern-style sauce that is vinegar and pepper, no tomatoes. Barbecue is serious here making it all the way to state Congress to declare the official bar-b-q.

Mission BBQ opened 09/11/11 ten years after 911. There is a tradition in the 52 restaurants stops at noon on Fridays to honor the military members and stars and stripes. The decor follows this continued theme with a patriotic dining room full of tributes to those who make our country great. There is really nothing more American than a barbeque.

The staff is exceptional and gives a lot of insight into food and history.  The food is a delicious find.

Smokey D’s Barbecue

Lunch with my dad is at Smokey D’s BBQ in Des Moines, Iowa. The year of BBQ adventures and the history of each region is fun. My dad enjoys a half rack of ribs; I go for a lighter side with a veggie wrap. The menu includes great home comfort foods. The fries are crispy and seasoned. The ribs fall right off the bone. Next time I want to try the potato casserole. The BBQ meat and sauce are award-winning. The BBQ founded by Darren and Sherry Warth in a trailer in their driveway.

Bobby-Q Barbecue

I enjoy a late evening dinner with my daughter, granddaughter Ellie, son-in-law, niece, and sister-in-law in Phoenix. It is a great location with exceptional decor. The bathroom sink is in the hallway near the restroom. The ceiling is worth looking up.

The menu is extensive and a nice variety of choices. The meat is slow smoked and topped with a sweet-savory bbq sauce. The mac-n-cheese is exceptional (Ellie loved this the best) and fries perfection. It is a great evening out.

The restaurant owned by Bob Sikora, a famous Phoenician restaurateur. He brings a Memphis approach to his bbq. The meat is smoked with almond and mesquite wood and dried rubbed.

Barbecue is a tradition in this country that is thousands of years old. It is a great way to spend with loved ones.

Memory Road Trip Heading West

Memory Road Trip Heading West

Heading west on a great road trip with my father. This is a dream journey with my father. He took me all over the west on road trips each summer. We begin in Champaign Illinois heading west on Interstate 80.

Molina Illinois

Lagomarino’s Soda and Candy Store The Best Chocolates and Ice Cream

The City of Moline sits on the banks of the Mississippi River. We stop at Lagomarino’s Soda and Candy Store. This candy shop opened in 1908 by Angelo Lagomarino, a Northern Italy immigrant. The store is the fourth generation. They have handcrafted chocolates with the finest ingredients. The store has an old-fashioned soda fountain. The soda menu includes the Green River (A Chicago drink named after the Chicago River that is dyed green for St. Patrick’s day).

Taking my father here was such a treat. He recalls the stories of going to the soda shop his uncle owned as a child. He talked about IronPort soda, a Utah tradition. It is a cross between root beer and Caribbean spices. He went for the hot fudge sundae (a surprise at the bottom was more fudge). I enjoyed a variety of hand-dipped chocolates during our road trip back west. This is a perfect place to stop and enjoy. They are the recipients of a James Beard Award.

Activities and Fun in Molina Illinois

This city is situated near the Iowa state border and sits on the mighty Mississippi River. This town is rich in history with being a part of the Underground Railroad and the home of industrialist John Deere (In 1848, he built his first Moline plow factory). There are many fun things to do here.

  • Washington Square Charles Deere built an upscale three-story five unit Italianate row house in 1890. His brother-in-law, Merton Cady, is the architect. The initial name for the complex was Deere Row and renters were said to be employees of the Deere factories.
  • Downtown murals love the Midwest and the vast varieties of murals. Molina’s downtown murals provide a view of Moline’s waterfront, as it would have looked in the early 1850s.
  • Rock Island played a large part of The Underground Railroad in Molina. This was the first stop for many slaves seeking freedom. The first state near several water sources provided transportation undercover. There is also a set of channels and tunnels underground that provide another escape route.

Leaving the mid-west I recall the experiences and beautiful people I meet. They have made a lasting impression on my life. This area of the United States provides history from slavery to the industrial age. The loss of jobs and industries is present everyday. The areas are gorgeous to visit and see. You feel the hardworking middle class that drove America into the modern world.

Iowa Road Trip

Sitting in a car all day with your father is a wonderful way to collect stories about his life. The first thing I learned is he loves to collect maps. Iowa is a great location for this collection.

Iowas Road Stops

Iowa has the best rest stops in history. You pull up to find a store, information about the area, books, and free maps. The first stop in Iowa my father returns with a collection of Iowa maps. He opens them up as we drive out of the rest stop.

Road Trip Memories

We enjoyed a day of talking about the years as a child I traveled the western US with my two brothers and parents. The summer trips to Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Wyoming, and Southern Utah. My dad would hitch the camping trailer to a yellow rambler and off we would go. We saw so many natural beauties. The adventures from my childhood are endless. The time my mother lost the car keys in the sand dunes. My father lost his new fishing pole the first time he cast out at Strawberry Reservoir. This results in our fishing trip looking for the fishing pole. This is never seen again.

My father is a military retiree. He spent decades as a medic in the Air Force. He would bring back great dolls, toys, and white lunch boxes they would feed the crew. He tells his stories of going to the Philippines, Japan, Korea, and Europe. The time he spent counting hours on the cargo plane counting the hours to coming home to see the three of us fight over the white lunch box.

Smokey D’s BBQ

Lunch is at Smokey D’s BBQ in Des Moines, Iowa. The year of BBQ adventures and the history of each region is fun. My dad enjoys a half rack of ribs; I go for a lighter side with a veggie wrap. The menu includes great home comfort foods. The fries are crispy and seasoned. The ribs feel right off the bone. The BBQ meat and sauce are award-winning. The BBQ founded by Darren and Sherry Warth in a trailer in their driveway.

Nebraska Adventures

The time in Nebraska is spent traveling through various rest stops and counting up more water towers. This is a tradition my sister and I started on the way out to the Midwest in spring. Many times this is the tallest thing on the horizon. We see a total of 177 water towers on I-80 through the Great Plains.

The Great Plains is seen as little value to many traveling west in the mid-1800s. Soon many ranchers release that the Verdant Platte is of great value. Today the highway runs along this geography changing areas.

Winter Quarters, Nebraska

This location is a gathering location of the member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. A stop my father looked forward to seeing. Many members of our family stayed here as they prepared to travel west to a new home.

There is a history of death, birth, and husbands leaving to fight the Mexican American War. They crossed the frozen Mississippi River in 1846. This gave them time to gather much needed supplies to make the journey across the Plains and over the Rocky Mountains.

Some of our relatives made this journey without basic needs including shoes. Some pushed their own carts. A few did find themselves in the middle of a winter storm needing rescuing to survive. This is a free museum.

We ventured across the street to the modern temple. This is a location that is used seal families together in family forever. Off the temple grounds is a cemetery. We were able to find a few of our relatives’ gravesites.

Kearney, Nebraska

We stay for the evening in Kearney, Nebraska. It was fun arriving late in the evening and walking around to stretch the legs and enjoy a few McDonald’s French-fries.

The food for the morning is oatmeal, nuts, dried fruit, and yogurt from Aldi’s, a wonderful grocery finds in Champaign Illinois (this is a store located worldwide).

Kearney has a beautiful museum, The Archway, that stretches over the I-80. This museum is a celebration, “For over 200 years, the path along the Platte River through Nebraska, once called the Great Platte River Road, has been a road to adventure.  From the Oregon Trail era through today, the Archway’s family-friendly historical exhibit tells the story of those who followed the Great Platte River Road and helped to build America.”

Cheyenne, Wyoming

The last stop before returning to Orem, Utah is Cheyenne, Wyoming. This western town is full of fun and explorations.

Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant

We find an authentic Mexican restaurant, Guadalajara, locally owned and operated. The ambience of Mexico is felt from the decor to the menu. The food is regional as well as traditional American Mexican.

I enjoy Camarones Al Mojo De Ajo. Rincon de Guayabitos in the estate of Sinaloa. This is a beautiful community that is a beach resort. It is known for fresh red snapper and other seafood including large shrimp.

This was a great dish with large shrimp, mushrooms, and a beautiful garlic sauce. It is served on a bed of iceberg lettuce with a slice of orange. The heat and cold with a touch of sweet tang from the orange inside a warm tortilla is perfect after a long day of driving.

My father enjoys an Enchiladas De Mole with shredded chicken. The mole is flavorful with a nice hint of heat. Mole is a sauce containing up to 20 ingredients. The sauce usually contains fruit, chili pepper, nut, and such spices as black pepper, cinnamon, cumin, and chocolate.

Exploring Cheyenne, Wyoming

The first thing you notice is the town is filled with large cowboy boots. This is a fun scavenger hunt for the family through town. Local artist paints each boot. We enjoy searching for these boots.

The town is the capital of Wyoming. There is a great museum near the capital that had maps for free. We leave with a stack of Wyoming maps.

The best stop here is the National Guard base that has F-84F And C-130 Aircraft (a favorite plane of my father). My father spent 35 years in the Air Force reserves as a medic. He worked a civilian at Hill Air Force base.

This was a fun day exploring Cheyenne and all the history in this town. This town goes from dinosaurs to the frontier days, and 19th century covered wagons. There are great museums including

  • Cheyenne Depot Museum
  • Cheyenne Botanical Garden
  • Wyoming State Museum
  • Cowgirls of the West Museum

This is a wonderful town to really see the migration west and the history of settling the American west.

This was a fun day exploring Cheyenne and all the history in this town. This town goes from dinosaurs, frontier days, and 19th century covered wagons to the railway travel.

This was a great journey with my father. It was great sharing memories from his childhood, my own childhood, and creating new memories. The remander of the journey back to Arizona is my dog Hyde and I.

Kanab, Utah

Kanab is the location of all road trippers on 89. It is the center of many national parks, great river rafting, and tons of fun.

The town has a great old western movie museum, Frontier Movie Town. This is a fun look at old film sets long before green screen and animation. This is a free museum behind the gift shop in the cottonwood trees. There are so many adventures near Kanab they include

  • Hiking
    • Cottonwood Wash Narrows
    • Slot Canyon
    • Paria Canyon
    • Wire Pass
    • Elusive Wave
    • Zion’s National Park
  • Drives
    • Glen Canyon Damn
    • Lake Powel
    • North Rim Grand Canyon
    • Kodachrome Basin State Park
  • Explore
    • Coral Pink Sand Dunes
    • Best Friends Animal Sanctuary
    • Moqui Cave
    • Green River Whitewater Rafting

Lunchtime is at Big Al’s Burgers at the Junction Drive-in (Thank you Cherie for the suggestion). Must have a traditional Utah meal. I worked at a local diner Provo as a teenager. The best meal is milkshake, hamburger, and fries with a Utah tradition of fry sauce (mayo and ketchup dip). This was a lot of fun, good food, and super busy. What a great location for fun.

This is a wonderful time to explore and travel the US. It was great meeting so many wonderful people and tremendous adventures. What is your favorite vacation? Post your response with #4chionstyle on social media.

Party at the Golden Globes

Party at the Golden Globes

The Golden Globes (presented by The Hollywood Foreign Press Association) is Hollywood’s Party continues to bring the message for women to the forefront. The red carpet was glamorous with the Time Is Up movement and an evening full of entertainment.

Time Is Up

This evening the celebrities wear black bracelets with “Time Is Up.” The bracelets bring attention to the clock is running out on sexual assault, harassment, and inequality in the workplace. Ryan Seacrest wears the bracelet while being under accusations for sexual harassment.

Sandra Oh brings this message to the forefront as the first Asian to host the Golden Globes. She says, “I said yes to the fear of being on this stage tonight because I wanted to be here and look out onto this audience and witness this moment of change. I’m not fooling myself. Next year could be different and probably will be. But right now, this moment is real.” Equality is stepping forward one historic moment at a time.

Carol Bernette is honored as one person who is a barrier breaker throughout her career. This evening she is the first recipient of the Achievement in Television, the Carol Burnett Award. She was the first woman to host a variety show, awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor and Kennedy Center Honors.

Red Carpet Glamour

This evening is the first red carpet of the new year. We are honored to cover presenter Jamie Lee Curtis. She brings the most amazing transformation look. She is all monochromatic ice white head to toe. She is wearing Alexander McQueen gown with glitzy silver, Perrin Paris clutch, Cathy Waterman jewelry, Camille Clark beautiful makeup complimenting the styling, and her new all white coif hair styling.

Sean James, the hairstylist to the stars, presents the top look of the evening’s red carpet. James states, “I used Fhi heats “Stylus” products for root lift, “high altitude” on towel dried hair, and then went through the hair section by section. I continued applying heat and letting it cool in the small round brush, this creates the volume. My favorite blow dryer to use is the FHI HEAT Platform Nano Salon Pro 2000. It’s Powerful Tourmaline Ceramic core helps control the heat without burning. This comes with a great cool button. Once I’ve created the lift and shape I go into the hair, pulling, shaping and separating the hair with “stylus “ hairspray “stay put .” I like to step back and look at it from all angles making sure that the hair is complementary to the face, ears, nose, eyes, and chin. I go over and give it one final spray with the stylus “Stay Styled. ” This makes hair flexible, Jaime can run her hands through it anytime she likes. When I bleached Jamie’s hair I used Neo bond. To protect and strengthen the bonds of the hair.” See below James has provided our readers with a special offer on the FHI Heat products.

The red carpet is known for its fun party atmosphere. This year the glamour was top and fabulous. The men looking all dapper in a great variety of tuxedos and great ties. Timothée Chalamet brings a new look for men to the red carpet with a sequin harness that has black iridescent and purple beads, seven different shades of sequin and a hidden pocket, with an embroidered bib, paired with a shirt, pants, and boots from Louis Vuitton.

The individuality of the women was very present this evening on the red carpet. The glamour is present with exceptional looks with personalized styling and fashion. Regina King wears an Alberta Ferretti floor-length dress features pink sequins with detailing along the sides. Lady Gaga pays homage to Judy Garland in a Valentino seven foot train gown.
