It's all about the ankles for award season!

Did you watch the Golden Globes? We watched the red carpet entrances for the fashion and a little of Tina Fey and Amy Poehlers hilarious hosting.
Even though, this year, a huge amount of movies that are on my "must see" happen to be up for nominations, here at Dirty Fabulous HQ we're all about the fashion!
The first thing we noticed about the Golden Globes red carpet was that many a Starlet had their ankles on show.
This may be a new trend for the red carpet but one that we are very familiar with. It was the norm from the 1940's to 1960's to show off your elegant shoes and wear your dresses raised to the ankles.
It can be hard to get your head around this style when you are used to wearing full length dresses that skim the floor but we think it's only gorgeous to show off some killer heels and shapely ankles!
