Hands up who isn’t quite ready for this year’s award season? I totally forgot this year, I really thought I had another week to prepare, scout out the dresses I want to see, binge watch the movies, have a look back at last year, but, instead, I ended up doing a lot of work at the last minute. I kind of feel like the celebs on the red carpet of the Golden Globes 2017 were feeling like it was a little too soon as well as overall it was quite an underwhelming display, don’t get me wrong, lots of gorgeous,
Who: Emma Stone Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California Wearing: A custom long-sleeve beaded chartreuse Elie Saab gown embroidered with guipure and sequins, featuring an open back and a thigh-high slit, paired with matching green heels and a Tiffany & Co. cuff Verdict: Emma Stone made us wait for her red carpet appearance tonight, but it was so worth it.

Who: Best Supporting Actress nominee Emma Stone Where: At the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California Wearing: A strapless Lanvin jumpsuit with silver embellishments to the bodice and a statement train with a bow in the back, teamed with black heels Verdict: Emma Stone has become one of my favourite red carpet stars and it is for looks like this, it isn’t frothy, it isn’t boring, and it isn’t what you expect during award season, and that is why I love it. I am a huge fan of masculine styling on the red carpet and this Lanvin jumpsuit
