jane krakowski at the golden globes

Somehow, in my full viewing of the Golden Globes last week, I managed to miss Jane Krakowski's gorgeous gown.

This perfectly understated Badgley Mischka gown recalls simultaneously the style of Julius Caesar with its drapery and Helen Mirren with its sexy-and-dramatic-but-still-tasteful neckline. I also love the subtle interest added by the use of different materials— notice the top portion that appears to be made of a material with slightly more sheen than the skirt and the lace panel on her left. It's all effortlessly balanced, too— with the one-shoulder detail on her right and the lace panel adding length on her left, there is a delightful diagonal eye line drawn across her body. Add that deep-breath graceful muted cornflower blue and the whole ensemble becomes truly a vision.

p.s. Congratulations to Jane on her pregnancy!

p.s. I've recently become a huge fan of 30 Rock.


  1. Did you know that Dame Helen Mirren has a tattoo??

  2. I did not! Looked it up... crazysauce! I love her.
