Sometimes it can feel like "modest fashion" is a walking oxymoron. But this year at the Golden Globes, stars proved that you don't have to bare all to be bold. We tip our hats to these modest, fashionable celebs that graced the runway yesterday at the Golden Globes.
Most celebrities probably aren't the best people to emulate, but if you watch closely, sometimes their choice of dress can surprise you - in a good way. Check out these 15 great dresses we saw at yesterday's Golden Globe awards that we found were (near) modest.
(Note: not all of these dresses are perfectly modest according to LDS standards, but we think they can still certainly provide inspiration for Mormon women who wish to be fashionable and modest.)

Could a question change your life? Authors of 52 Life-Changing Questions from the Book of Mormon think so--and shared some of the great stats about questions they found in the pages of the Book of Mormon from their research.
"A good question ... is like an alarm clock," wrote Elder Tad R. Callister. "It awakens us out of our mental doldrums [and] jump-starts our mental engines."
Where can we find questions that will awaken us out of those mental—and spiritual—doldrums? Popular authors John Hilton III and Brad Wilcox help us recognize and ponder fifty-two powerful questions from the Book of Mormon—one for each week of the year. One short chapter each week has the power to change your life.
Believing in yourself is easier said than done. But when we try to see ourselves as God sees us, we can gain new-found confidence that will propel us forward to accomplish the work He has given us.
Have you ever squinted your eyes to see something more clearly? Sometimes it works. Other times, however, we squint too tight and end up blurring our vision even more.
In our efforts to see ourselves and our progress on the path toward attaining perfection, we often squint too hard. The result can be a skewed perception of who we actually are. Luckily for us, there is a cure, and it actually involves the eyes of someone else—our Heavenly Father. He has perfect vision and perspective, and if we learn to see ourselves through His eyes, we will see ourselves more clearly. We can find joy, peace, and confidence—even in our imperfections and faults.
"Viral" posts spread through all parts of the internet just like their namesake--but did you catch these viral posts that were about Mormons? From the first click to the one millionth and more, here are the top 5 viral videos and posts from 2013 about or by Mormons like you.
Here at LDS Living we love all things Mormon. And every once in a while, we see one or two Mormons turn into internet stars overnight in a phenomenon known as “going viral.” How many of these incredibly popular videos, blog posts, and pictures from Mormons did you see this year?
Jason Mortensen charmed millions of women with his sweet reaction to seeing his wife for the first time after waking up from anesthesia. In his groggy state of mind, Mortensen thought he was seeing her for the first time and fortunately didn’t have enough good things to say about her, or about how lucky he was when he found out they were married! His hilariously cute reaction has since earned him the title “Husband of the Year” as well as a "Most Memorable Moment" award from the Today show.
It's still so touching and adorable, you'll want to watch it again:
Are you hoping for more spiritual Sundays in 2014? Here are our best ideas for making your day of rest better and easier for the New Year.
Let’s face it—sometimes Sundays aren’t as enjoyable or fulfilling as we’d like them to be. Between the stress of getting the family—and yourself—ready for church, preparing lessons, preparing meals, and keeping the kids occupied for the rest of the day, our day of rest can be anything but restful. If you’ve been stuck in a rut, try some of these ideas to help reinvent your Sunday.
1. Simplify Sunday meals.
This was by far the most popular concept with LDS Living staff and readers alike. Here is a list of great suggestions to make feeding the family a little easier:
Get rid of the notion that we need to have a huge traditional meal after church. “It doesn’t really fit in with our day of rest,” writes Lisa Lemich Sherman on LDS Living’s Facebook page. “Use up those leftovers!” Another LDS Living Facebook friend, Sarah Gailey Emke, agrees. “I’ve done away with the big Sunday dinner. We have whatever I can think of that is easiest. It also makes for less dishes—a definite plus!”
