Red Carpet: Golden Globes 2012 – My Best Dressed

I always find it hard narrowing down my best dressed list, it is easier to say what I don’t like, as I fall in love a lot with red carpet gowns so naming just five is hard. Last year was a little easier because there was Olivia Wilde’s princess gown, Anne Hathaway as a gold goddess and Angelina Jolie in an emerald-green Atelier Versace, the only one to return this year’s red carpet. But here they are – in no particular order – as I couldn’t decide on an order!!

Statement Dress

Well there were a lot of boring gowns this year and for those who went for something a little bit different they really stood out for me as that is what award ceremonies are all about. For me the dress that made the most of a statement was Sarah Michelle Gellar’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown. This blue ink splotched ball gown made me swoon when I saw it on TV that I knew instantly that I had to include it. I know it is a controversial choice and for most this dress doesn’t work on her tiny frame but I kind of like that about it. Also she said her 2-year-old had a hand in picking it out – what a great a-list styling career she has ahead of her – this is a genius choice.


I couldn’t have a best-dressed list without including one of the hottest trends from this year’s awards the fishtail. I liked a lot from the classic style on Sofia to the sexiness of Reese, but for me Evan Rachel Wood’s edgy Gucci gown is just exquisite. Everything from the scale sequins to the feathered skirt and train, to the unusual dark green colour – it really is a knock-out gown.


Couldn’t be a best dressed list with a romantic, fairy tale type dress, last year I went with the traditional princess ball gown of Olivia Wilde, this year is a little unconventional but still just as gorgeous, Charlize Theron and her dusky-pink Dior couture gown. I love the oversized bow, the sexy thigh-high split and plunging neckline, but most of all I love the vintage accessories and the colour is just perfection.

The excitement was in the air at Angelina Jolie hitting the red carpet with Brad Pitt and she most certainly came prepared with a gorgeous Atelier Versace gown. What I loved the most about this gown, other than it being on Angie she never seems to get it wrong during award season, has to be how it fits her perfectly. I also adore the fashion-forward thinking of including the red flash at the neckline, it stops this dress looking a little dated, it also works superbly with her coordinated hot red lippy.

Young Starlets

I know technically I only have one spot left on my top five but I just couldn’t choose between the Hollywood starlets Emma Stone, Dianna Agron and Zooey Deschanel. Emma for me was all about the unusual pairing of purple and fuchsia in her Lanvin gown and of course that fierce eagle belt. I have to support Dianna for her excellent choice in wearing a Giles dress, not only was it the most intricate detailed dress on the red carpet, it was a huge risk for her to go for a relative unknown designer in terms of red carpet looks – but I am so glad she did as she is a vision in red. As my latest girl crush I had to include Zooey, not only did she have the best nails see below, but I was so pleased to see Prada on the Golden Globes red carpet again. What a way to return with a gorgeous green silk gown with an open back and pearl embroidered top – simply gorgeous.

Honorary Mention

I know I already over my top five but I had to include Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann, it is the perfect mix of masculine and feminine and she looks incredible. What I love so much about this tailored-suit shape has to be the ice-blue colour – so divine. Also a special mention has to go to her amazing Pomellato jewellery cuffs – HOT!!!

So who gets your vote for best dress – leave me a comment below and let me know.

Golden Globes: Evan Rachel Wood In Gucci Premiere

Who: Evan Rachel Wood

Where: At the 69th Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A dark green sequinned and feather-embellished halterneck Gucci Premiere gown with a plunging neckline and open back, teamed with a gold bangle, diamond stud earrings and a snake ring, all by Fred Leighton

Verdict: Evan was one of the stars that I was most excited to see walk the red carpet and she certainly didn’t disappoint me – this is one show-stopping number, that kind of reminded me of a mermaid, and I love it!!!!

I kind of want to know how long it took to make this exquisitely crafted dress – as I am sure that all the sequins, paillettes and feathers were sewn on by hand – just extraordinary and flawless. A complete vision from the sheer deep V neckline with sequin overlay to the gorgeous feathers that completed her skirt and train – I just adore everything about it.

I don’t think anyone else could have pulled off this look better – she just looks incredible – just enough attitude to really work it. This is without a doubt one of my best dressed of the night.

Mildred Pierce: Evan Rachel Wood Sultry in Elie Saab

Who: Actress Evan Rachel Wood

Where: At the New York premiere of Mildred Pierce

Wearing: A plum, long-sleeved jersey Elie Saab cocktail dress, from the autumn/winter 2011 ready-to-wear collection, with jewelled detailing to the hip. Finishing off her look are plum peep-toe platforms with a double ankle strap, from the same collection.

Verdict: I love this sultry-yet-elegant look. The colour is perfection, the long-sleeves gorgeous, and the thigh-high split is just plain sexy, team that with her wavy blonde locks and bold lippy and this is a fierce look.

Video Loving: Gucci Guilty TV Commercial


Here it is the official Gucci Guilty TV commercial starring Evan Rachel Wood and a dreamy looking Chris Evans. Directed by American comic book creator and film director Frank Miller, who is best known for his film noir-style comics, and you can see this in advert.

First thing I thought off when I saw this advert was how much it reminds me of Kylie’s Can’t Get You Out Of My Head music video. What do you think do you like it?
