Hello there 🙂
The 78th annual Golden Globe Awards were… interesting. There were lots of laughs (Amy Poehler and Tina Fey as co-hosts again), joyous and gloomy tears (Taylor Simone Ledward who received the award for best actor in a motion picture, drama award for her late husband Chadwick Boseman was heartbreaking moment) and cumbersome technical difficulties (when hitting the mute button again!) to walk around. And then there was the glaring problem of the membership of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which rightly hung like a gray cloud over the show. Virtual awards are tough. They lack the glitz, glamor and prestige that we've gotten used to over the years, but still the show and red carpet – worthy fashion, must go on.
First-time nominee Jane Levy, who was from Canada, impressed with a dramatic look from Oscar de la Renta. With the help of stylist Tara Swennen, the Zoey's extraordinary playlist The actress opted for a hand-cut dress made of dark blue silk from the pre-Spring 21 collection that delighted from every angle, paired with Vrai jewels and Jimmy Choo sandals. A smoky eye, a cat's eye and soft curls complemented the ensemble perfectly. Despite the grim weather in Vancouver, it was a celebratory occasion for the 31-year-old and her NBC show. We were thrilled when she agreed to document the exciting moment exclusively for Who What Wear.
From the glamorous chair to the zoom setup, watch how Levy's look came together!
First things first, congratulations on your Golden Globes nomination! How do you love working on a show? Zoey's extraordinary playlist? Any standout moments from season one?
I love acting and learning new forms of expression – singing and dancing – was so fulfilling and fun. In the first season there was an episode called "Zoey's Extraordinary Glitch" in which I performed all of the musical numbers. Through Zoey in this episode we make the audience laugh, cry, swoon and scare! I especially love making people flinch. Ha.
It's safe to say that the Golden Globes will look a little different this year. How do you plan to attend the celebrations from afar?
I'm in Canada and I'm doing the second season of our show. I rented a hotel room and had my boyfriend and closest friends (in my pod) with me. I wish we could have all been together at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, but I just feel lucky to have been accepted.
What were some of the early conversations you and your stylist had about your Golden Globes look? What did you want to achieve?
Tara Swennen, my stylist, wrote me photos of dresses while I was on set. There were so many stunning options, but we narrowed them down to a clean four as we would be shipping back and forth internationally.
You have chosen Oscar de la Renta for the event. What did you immediately notice with this dress?
I mean, Oscar de la Renta? I bow. This dress fits almost perfectly. We only had to make minimal changes. I especially love the open back of the dress … and those bows? I also love the colors blue and black together.
Did the fact that you are present virtually affect the look you have chosen?
Yes and no. At first I thought that the shoulders of the dress I chose will be the most important. But then I thought I'd rather choose the dress that makes me feel most beautiful.
Let's talk about glamor. How did you choose your hair and makeup look? Do you like to come to the table with ideas or would you prefer your trustworthy team to take the lead?
Caroline Dehner and Natalie Cosco do my hair and make-up Zoey & # 39; s. It was fun coming up with evening looks that we could do together as I play a programmer on the show and only wear minimal makeup. We did a few test looks, and the fact that the globes were virtual affects what we ended up doing. I recently treated myself to some new Hermès lipsticks and knew I wanted to wear their 54 Rose Nuit. It's matte but doesn't dry your lips. The color is soft and sexy. We went with a smoky cat eye because I'm a fool for cat eyes.
What are some of your favorite products when it comes to prepping your skin?
I get a lot of facials. I love Lisa at the Skin Girls up here in Vancouver. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the best way to achieve beautiful skin is to drink tons of water, exercise, and not drink alcohol (Boo!), limited salt at night in front of the camera and lots of sleep. In terms of products, my favorite oil is Best Skin Ever ($ 31) by Living Libations. Your incense smell is divine. I also use Moon Juice's skin care regimen. Their plump jelly ($ 58) and cosmic cream ($ 58) feel so nourishing and sit well on my skin under makeup. After showering, I lather my body in Everyday Oil's Mainstay Blend ($ 14), which I can't get in Canada, so I came here with four bottles!
What's on your prep playlist?
Ariana Grande! Prince, duh. I got "17" from Pink Sweat $ on repeat.
