There is always something special about the Golden Globes, granted it will never live up to the glamour of The Oscars, but I do like seeing the best of the silver screen next to the stars of the small screen, who we generally don’t see out on the red carpet as much.
This year was an interesting red carpet, there weren’t many bad looks, unless you agreed with me about Jessica Chastain, but unlike previous year’s there wasn’t many wow moments either, which made it a little uninspiring, some people on Twitter said they thought it was a little boring.
There was lots I loved – Jennifer Garner all glammed up was nice to see, Claire Danes looked incredible, her personal trainer should get an award, and I was pleased to see Megan Fox back on the red carpet. When it comes to who was my best dressed I am going to have to go for Lucy Lui, the drama of her incredible Carolina Herrera gown completely blew me away.
As well as enjoying seeing the gorgeous dresses on the red carpet I also like to talk about the trends and this year seemed to be all about colour – whether red, black or neutral tones, plus something I couldn’t miss was a few sexy ladies doing their own tribute to Angelina Jolie, it seems her leg bombing pose has really caught on!!!
All Shades Of Red:
Red always makes a statement on the red carpet especially during award season but this year’s Golden Globes really did deliver ever shade of red possible, from the vibrant red shade of Claire Danes’ Versace number to the cherry Dior beauty that Jennifer Lawrence, to the darker shades of Zooey Deschanel’s Oscar de la Renta and Jennifer Garner’s burgundy Vivienne Westwood. This was definitely the star power shade of the night.
Neutral and Girlie:
Neutral tones were stunning at this year’s awards – from blush tones such as Megan Fox’s tight and lacy Dolce & Gabbana gown to Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery, who wore a cream column Alexandre Vauthier gown with gold leaf embroidered bodice, which reminded me of an Alexander McQueen. Then there was Emily Blunt who looked sexy in a gold metallic lace chain embroidered cutout Michael Kors, white the pure girlie vibes were brought by Hayden Panettiere in Roberto Cavalli and Isla Fisher in her embroidered Reem Acra. Normally I don’t get excited by nude, cream and blush tones but this year I like all the added touches of subtle embellishment, layering, mermaid trains, and intricate lace.
Last award season white walking down the red carpet was a little too bridal for me, this year white has been given a modern make-over. There was Anne Hathaway wearing an elegant Chanel Couture column gown, Amanda Seyfried looked stunning in a gorgeous embroidered Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci, and then there was Julianne Hough in a frothy Monique Lhullier, and Kerry Washington in a sheer and lacy Miu Miu dress, each really stood out among the bold red and black numbers.
Black on the red carpet is generally seen as a little boring, even I have been negative about some stars constantly wearing of the colour, but this year’s Golden Globes really showed that black isn’t always boring. We had sexy black with Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen and Allison Williams in J.Mendel, then we had flattering and slimming with Julianne Moore in a custom-made Tom Ford and Nicole Kidman in Alexander McQueen, and then we had touches of sheer with Julianna Margulies in a daring beaded Emilio Pucci and Rachel Weisz accompanied James Bond in a dotty Louis Vuitton.
Ending off my trends report is what I am calling Leg Bombing, as even though Angelina Jolie might not have been in attendance at this year’s awards her dramatic leg pose certainly was from the ladies with thigh-high slits. While Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Saint Laurent and Lea Michele in a sequinned Elie Saab went for subtle leg action, the sexy Halle Berry in Atelier Versace and Eva Longoria in a lace and chiffon Emilio Pucci gown certainly brought the attitude to the pose. They are all giving Angie a run for her money!!!
