The best part about awards shows (especially the snooze fest that was this year’s Golden Globes) is always the fashion! Sure, sometimes an underdog’s speech will bring me to tears, but it’s the gowns that snap me to attention.
Here are my thoughts on this year’s Golden Globes fashion:
Hot momma! I love everything about this look. The color and cut are bold and sexy but she kept her hair and makeup simple. By doing so, she avoidedlooking like she was trying too hard or looking like someone she’s not. She looks beautiful and natural and that dress fits her like a glove!
Another hot momma! It’s no secret that I’m drawn to all things glittery, which is probably why I loved this look on Salma. The gown plays up her curves and is a little futuristic without straying from chic. Like Reese, she also kept her hair and makeup simple which allows the gown to shine in all its glory!
I love that Kate is a real girl who owns her curves. She looks flawless in this chic colorblock dress. I love the shoulders and the keyhole peekaboo. She shows a little skin but manages to keep it tasteful.
Last but not least is the gorgeous Emma Stone. I love everything about this look. The color is fabulous and works really well with her skin tone. I love the shoulder details and the soft draping. I even think the eagle buckle is a pretty cool touch, even though I probably wouldn’t wear it myself. Combine that with her smoky eyes and we have perfection!
Least Favorite Looks
She’s gorgeous. A large portion of the dress is gorgeous. But my major problem is with the color. It completely washes her out and the red is so severe (I know that’s her thing, I just don’t think it works here). And something about the clutch, collar and lips scream bridesmaid to me. Thumbs down.
I’m not sure what I disliked more: the ice capades dress or the terrible in-your-face posing. Sadly, I think it was the dress. I usually love Marchesa, but the metallic color, sheer bits and ornate top all seemed to fight with each other and the result wasn’t pretty.
Amanda Peet in Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs is another designer that I usually love, but Amanda Peet looked sloppy and a little frumpy in this gown. While I like the fabric, the dress looks like it doesn’t fit her. I think the tiers were a little bit of overkill. I’m also not feeling the shoe choice in combination with this dress!
I like a little bit of print to break up a bland red carpet. But this is a disaster. Not only does it look a little too bridal, but it looks like her daughter’s blue marker exploded all over it. To make matters worse, her hair gives her a bit of a Barbie look. All I can think of is a deranged Barbie sitting atop a wedding cake (maybe some blue icing bled into her gown?).
I loved Charlize’s entire look. That Dior gown is amazing. Seriously stunning. But I especially loved the headband, which isn’t something you often see on the red carpet (the adorable Michelle Williams also wore one).
Gorgeous! The color of these earrings really popped. They were the first thing I noticed about her! They worked flawlessly with both her hair and skin color and made a statement without being overbearing.
I always love Heidi. What I love in particular about this necklace is how unexpected it is. You rarely see turquoise on the red carpet. But this bold piece works because she paired it with a simple nude dress.
