I'm not gonna lie. I have more than a few celebrity crushes. (Doesn't everyone? Katy Perry, are you out there? Just saying that I'd LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to work with you, girl!) I follow famous people on Instagram. I consume pop culture media. I throw parties for the Oscars, the Tonys and any other event my friends will show up for. I pay attention to celebrity quotes. And I recently watched THE mega celebrity event of the year: the Royal Wedding. I took a power nap, then watched the live broadcast as hometown L.A. gal Meghan married Harry (I'm totally on a first-name basis with them), fueled by generous pours of Pimms, tea and sightings of George Clooney and David Beckham all dressed up. Sigh... it was lovely. (And so was the nap I took afterward.)
Post wedding, I had lots of important voting and analysis to do. The morning coat: Who wore it best? What's a lounge suit? Which shoes did I covet? Why so many men with sashes? And what's the deal with all those braided rope thingies... were there curtains that might need to be suddenly tied back? Which rebels broke the dress code? (Bare shoulders, sandals? Scandalous!) Who IS that amazing cellist and can I get him for my next party? Tell me again why we ever wear leggings in public. And my fave, whose fascinator do I want for Christmas?
Helloooo... have I lost you yet? As you can see, I was slightly obsessed with this foreign fairytale made-for-TV-movie event! Where better to see beaucoup celebrities and royals dressed to the nines in fabulous, beautiful, suitable outfits? I even approved of the horse-drawn carriage — for once, it seemed completely appropriate and not at all tacky!
Celebrity Quotes: They Talk Just Like Us, Only Better!
The "When Harry Met Meghan" wedding was basically an event planner's dream event. It probably took an army of professionals to handle every last detail and ensure that the day was perfect. Imagine having that event on your resume! See? There was actually a professional reason for my interest. (OK, obsession.) And now that I've sucked you in to my Windsor wedding/European royal military uniform/fascinator fascination, you, too, may find yourself dressing just a little better this week. And why not? For my gentlemen readers, if you wear a suit, try calling it a lounge suit. You'll either sound very British or very snooty (can't really say which it'll be). And while you're looking sharp and perhaps enjoying some bowl food — you know that's what they served, right? — and canapés involving asparagus, you can take a few moments to peruse the celebrity quotes I'm sharing this week.
Unfortunately, no quote-worthy quotes from the wedding have come out yet — but if any do, I'm on it! For now, I'm sticking with utterances made previously by people I admire or whose words of wisdom are worth sharing. One of them is even British and once played one of England's most famous monarchs in a movie. So there's that. And I bet she can totally pull off wearing a fascinator even if she's not at a wedding.
All this talk of royalty was just a diversion for me this week, as well as a way of segueing into the celebrity quotes I'm sharing.
