“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!” Audrey Hepburn
Awards show season is here! This is my favorite time of year — Christmas and awards show season go hand in hand in my book.
Last night, I attended the Moët & Chandon 2nd Annual Moët Moment Film Festival which kicked off Golden Globes week alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Bryce Dallas Howard, Gina Rodriguez, and Olivia Culpo.
But before I hit the red carpet, I was dealing with a red carpet nightmare (doesn’t that always seem to happen?) My zipper broke moments before I was going to leave the glam room and I had to do a last minute wardrobe change. I ended up wearing this beautiful Balmain dress that was two sizes too big, but hey, when you’re in a pinch, you make it work!
I had to figure out how I can make this dress be more fitted on my body without actually using a needle and thread. Thank goodness for my BCBG belt that I had hanging in my office! This belt is a lifesaver because it’s big and thick and can hold the waist in. The belt was like magic and worked like a charm.
My amazing glam team, Roakel Lizama and Gilbert Muniz were so great to help me get ready, especially with all the last minute dress drama! Honestly, it was so stressful dealing with the wardrobe malfunction before a big red carpet event. Just walking the red carpet alone can be very stressful, there are a lot of photographers yelling out your name, and you have no idea how you look under the flashing lights or if you will end up on the best or worst dressed list. Talk about STRESSFUL!
I had to hold in all my emotions and let my confidence take the lead on the red carpet. I think anytime you deal with a disaster, it’s important to breathe and realize that there are worse things in life. Something as small as a zipper breaking can throw us all in a little panic. It’s important to realize that it’s JUST a zipper and it can be fixed. It’s important to laugh at disasters and count our blessings.
Overall, I feel like the look came out good all together and the event was super fun. I honestly enjoyed meeting new people and especially doing a special interview with Gina Rodriguez, which you can watch today on youtube.com/dianamadison.
