New Years’ Day 2011 is fastly approaching and with it brings many thoughts as to what the new year will bring to the fashion and entertainment world. As we look back on 2010, we can only imagine what the next year will be like in these categories. We can only hope that we don’t see the scandals and affairs for celebrities that we have seen the past year and as usual in the fashion world, something from the past is bound to return.
Let’s start with the scandal that many say dominated the news in 2010- Tiger Woods. After admitting that he had a sexual addiction and seeking treatment for that after many women came forward with very incriminating information his career took a downward spiral and he lost major backers and his family. Could the same be headed to the football world with quarterback Brett Favre being fined $50,000 by the NFL after being accused of sending sexually explicit photos and suggestive text messages to Jen Sturger , an employee of the NY Jets at the time. Favre has never admitted or denied the facts in this case and the NFL has never made him discuss the issue with anyone outside of the league. The NFL has said that they are unable to prove that the photos came from Favre and so nothing more could be done in the matter. Will we see Sturger appeal the NFL ruling or will we see a civil lawsuit filed against Favre? Being that he has announced that this is his last year in football, will it just all go to the wayside in 2011? We will just have to wait and see.
Also in the world of entertainment, Mel Gibson will be starring in a movie that is not written to be a huge hit, but could be his return the big scene. After a very tumultuous year for him following the release of recorded messages that are supposedly him yelling and screaming at his wife this could be his big break.
Of course, better news for the entertainment world will be the royal weddings that will take place this year. There will be two of them and of course, the biggest wedding of the year will be Prince William and Kate. All eyes will be on them in the upcoming year and especially on the big day.
Fashion is as different as the seasons but there are some trends that seem to be forming for the upcoming year. It is not a always a new trend as next year certainly doesn’t look to be either. Once again, we are going to see a play on older styles. Take a look into the 70’s for some of the fashions that we will see in the upcoming months. Wider legged jeans are back as are bright colors. Plaids will be highly popular in upcoming months and anything that says pajama party. Yes, even a plaid button up the front shirt with a white tee or tank under it will be a fashion statement.
Reds, oranges, and whites will be the hot colors for the next few months. All of these will be adorned with large necklaces and metallics will be hot accessories. Lace and sequins look to be hot items as well in the next fashion season. Anything colorful and bright will be the in style.
Also, hot in the fashion world will be some of the newest beauty products that are going to be on the scene this year. Look for a line of skin care products called Youth Code that will stimulate your DNA and will supposedly make you look younger. Also, look for many hair treatments for split ends and dry shampoos will be a popular item this season. Suave will be one of the lower end brands of shampoos that will add a dry shampoo to their line.
Whatever the year brings we will see new stars face new issues and we will see many stars that face struggles that might not be an issue if they were not Hollywood actors and actresses. We will see some fashion that we like and some that we don’t. Follow the trends that you like and the stars that you like and be widely aware that next week, next month, or next season changes will abound as they always do.
