Golden Globes Fashion!


Awards shows offer an interesting view of celebrity style. The 70th Annual Golden Globes was no different. While some choose to play it safe, like Anne Hathaway and Adele, some stars opted for the wow factor. Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed both their looks for the night, while stars like Lena Dunham and Jessica Chastain faltered.

Fey and Poehler walked the red carpet in tuxedo influenced pieces (Amy more so than Tina, obviously). Their matching outfits were perfect, Fey looked glamorous in her L’Wren Scott gown while Poehler looked sultry in her Stella McCartney pantsuit and heels.

For the main show they switched things up, both giving full on glamour. Fey in a sparkly number and Poehler in a beautiful maroon gown.

Sparkles are always a huge hit on the red carpet. Emily Blunt in Michael Kors, Sofia Vergera and Nicole Richie in Naeem Khan all looked stupendous in their gowns.

Embroidery and embellishments were tried by a few stars. Nicole Kidman in Alexander McQueen, Michelle Dockery in Alexandre Vauthier and Kristen Bell each tried this difficult trend. Kidman and Dockery look incredible in their unusual but stunning gowns. Bell, unfortunately, looks like she is being swallowed by the embellishments in her Jenny Packham gown.

Red dresses are a staple for the red carpet. Jennifer Lawrence and Zooey Deschanel had virtually the same dress, Lawrence’s by Christian Dior and Deschanel’s by Oscar de la Renta. Marion Cotillard also wore a red, high-low Christian Dior, dress, standing out from the others.

There are always the stars who stick to black, it’s slimming, looks great in photos and its comfortable. While Adele’s Burberry gown is very much her style, it doesn’t scream glamour. Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen, Eva Longoria in Emilio Pucci and Julianne in Tom Ford, also used black but with embellishments, beading and colour blocking, the gowns become more interesting.

Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried and Amy Adams all chose muted looks for the red carpet. While they all looked beautiful, Hathaway wore Chanel Couture, Seigrey wore Givenchy, and Adams wore Marchesa, these dresses didn’t stand out among the strong colours and dramatic shapes of other dresses.

The biggest surprises of the night were Naomi Watts and Lucy Liu. Watts looked unique and old Hollywood in her maroon Zac Posen, while Liu choice a bold print by Carolina Herrera making her dress one of my favourites of the night.

With the good comes the bad, here are the worst dressed of the evening. Ariel Winter looked youthful but bland in her Valentino Resort dress, even with the neon shoes. Dunhams eggplant dress is a great colour on her but the shape makes her look much wider then she is. Jessica Chastain’s Calvin Klein dress dropped weirdly in the chest and Halle Berrys Atelier Versace dress is just crazy.
