Award Season: Golden Globes 2013 – The Trends

Lucy lui CarolinaHerrera Award Season: Golden Globes 2013   The Trends %tagThere 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:

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.

Leg Bombing:

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!!!

So what did you think about this year’s Golden Globes red carpet fashion? Leave me a comment below on who was your best dressed.

Golden Globes 2013: Lucy Liu Wears Carolina Herrera

Lucy lui CarolinaHerrera Golden Globes 2013: Lucy Liu Wears Carolina Herrera %tag

Who: Lucy Liu

Where: At the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A blue rose-vine patterned Jacquard strapless Carolina Herrera gown from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery and a fishtail braid

Verdict: Los Angeles maybe having a winter chill at the moment but the Elementary actress was in full bloom at this year’s Golden Globes in this gorgeous and dramatic gown from Carolina Herrera. This is the second look from the pre-fall 2013 collection this we’ve seen this week, like with Emmy Rossum’s constellations print, this another very ladylike ‘princess’ dress that was made for the red carpet.

I always seem to like what Lucy wears on the red carpet as she takes risks, which to be honest is easy when you look as good as her, and I absolutely adore this dress. I love everything about this look from the romantic print to the way the dress highlights her tiny waist, to the exquisite Lorraine Schwartz pink-gold, 2.5 million dollar drop earrings with over 30 carats of diamonds, and how she has finished it off with a gorgeous fishtail braid and barely there make-up.

Lucy is gorgeous in this dress and is most certainly in my top five favourites of the night – I simply love it.

Golden Globes 2013: Jennifer Lopez In Zuhair Murad

Who: Jennifer Lopez

Where: At the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A long-sleeve silk Zuhair Murad gown featuring an ivory embroidered lace overlay with beading detail from the spring/summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection, teamed with a gold clutch

Verdict: I so, so want to like this look from Jennifer Lopez, mainly because I always love that she goes full-out on the red carpet, but for me this dress looks too familiar.

The problem I have with the gown is that feels too much like an ice skating outfit or one of her tour looks with all the nude lace – plus it just keeps on reminding me of that nude jumpsuit Britney wore in her Toxic video.

On the plus side no one does red carpet hair and make-up better than J-Lo she really does look stunning.

What do you think of J-Lo’s look?

Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Alba In Oscar de la Renta

jessica alba odlr Golden Globes 2013: Jessica Alba In Oscar de la Renta %tag

Who: Jessica Alba

Where: At the Golden Globe Awards 2013, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: A strapless melon silk-faille Oscar de la Renta gown featuring a trumpet skirt, sweetheart neckline from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with Jimmy Choo Kalpa platform sandals, a Roger Vivier clutch and an incredible Harry Winston diamond necklace

Verdict: Melon is an interesting description to this dress I would go for coral but hey who am I to argue with Oscar de la Renta. This gown is gorgeous, I love the neckline, the drama of the trumpet skirt and train, and even the colour – it kind of fitting into the nude/light pink trend that swept the Golden Globes red carpet.

But come on surely all eyes are on her neck and that amazing Harry Winston necklace, which according to the press release is valued at $5.8 million – that is serious bling – I bet she has a bodyguard or two keeping an eye on that beauty!!!

The only thing I am not loving has to be that furry clutch – for me it is a little unnecessary – but hey such a tiny thing as everything else is fab including her gorgeous old-Hollywood locks.
