Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California
Wearing: A black silk-gazar J.Mendel gown featuring a plunging V neckline, a tear-drop open back and a mermaid train from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewels
Verdict: Award red carpets and mermaid silhouettes go hand-in-hand and there were a lot on show at this year’s Golden Globes. One of my favourites had to be this J. Mendel gown that Allison Williams wore because it was bold, daring and so, so sexy.
Sometimes mermaid trains can make a dress look fussy and can age young starlets, this gorgeous J.Mendel however mixes the traditional silhouette up with a sexy plunging V-neckline and open back to make it look modern and fresh. I like it in black, however I think Allison could have pulled off this look more if it had been done in a bright colour.
With such a bold silhouette I was pleased to see that the Girls actress went for a minimal look with her accessories and hair and make-up, adding a pop of colour with her Lorraine Schwartz earrings and a slick bun for an elegant and refined look.
