Golden Globes Fashion Round-Up
The women’s trend on the Globes Red Carpet this year was white cut-outs and red gowns. As for the dudes, the bowtie game was strong. There were many standouts of the night, and many looks that are boring and overdone. Hem lengths, plunging necklines, and snake accessories, oh my! Here are my picks for the best and worst fashion moments of the evening.
Women’s Fashion on the Carpet
The plunging neckline was huge this year and for some it fell short. Although J-Lo’s look was not her best, Jeremy Renner would, I’m sure, disagree. The look worked well on an uber-sexy Kate Hudson in Versace. The dress itself was not exceptional, but it fit her like a glove and she was a real standout on the carpet. Emma Stone’s fashion-forward look was daring for a young actress at the Globes. Too casual? I think not. She looked absolutely gorgeous in her Lanvin jumpsuit with a beaded bodice and an oversized sash, and I loved her accessories. Lorde followed suit and was a notable presence on the red carpet in her Narcisco Rodriguez slacks and perfectly cropped top. Finally, Chrissy Teigen’s Zuhair Murad lace dress was jaw-dropping, and she and John Legend were among the cutest couples at Sunday night’s event. The night did not, however, do Julianna Margulies or Kiera Knightley any favours. As my worst-dressed picks of the night, these two incredible actresses were not on their style game. Kiera Knightley’s Chanel bug-printed bib dress was far from a winner, and Julianna’s look was just wrong from head to toe.
Best: Chrissy Teigen in Zuhair Murad
Best: Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace
Best: Emma Stone in Lanvin
Worst: Julianna Margulies in Ulyana Sergeenko
Worst: Kiera Knightley in Chanel
Men’s Fashion on the Carpet
Alright, alright, alright. I have to hand it to Matthew McConaughey. He has redefined red carpet style in the last couple of years by bringing bold colours and interesting fabrics to the awards. This look has really stuck, from David Oyelowo’s navy glitter three-piece suit to Alan Cumming’s more questionable champagne outfit with bold sneakers. Not the best. These are my picks for best- and worst-dressed men of the night.
Best: Eddie Redmayne in a Velvet Gucci Suit
Best: Matt Boemer in Ralph Lauren Black Label
Best: Seth Myers in Dolce & Gabbana
Worst: Alan Cumming in Calvin Klein
Best Dressed Couples
Everyone was eagerly awaiting George Clooney and his new wife Amal’s arrival on the red carpet, but their respective looks fell short. The Tatums and the McConaugheys were the most fashion-forward couples of the evening, although Anna Faris and Chris Pratt take the cake for being the absolute cutest duo! Their presence on the red carpet and as presenters was a highlight!
Best: Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum
Best: Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey
Notable (Surprise) Mention: Gwenyth Paltrow in Michael Kors
Gwenyth Paltrow, who did not walk the red carpet, premiered her look by presenting an award. She looked absolutely gorgeous in her pink gown with a plunging neckline.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globes for the last time and started the show off with a bang. With the exception of the North Korean propaganda officer Margaret Cho gag, which fell flat, they slayed their opening monologue. Their finest gag? Poking fun at George Clooney. Tina and Amy noted that his new wife, Amal is “a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an advisor to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three-person UN commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip.” The punch line – “So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.” JUST PERFECT.
If you didn’t catch the Red Carpet, the Globes are just the beginning of the award-show season. And if you did, who were your best and worst picks of the night? If Sunday night was any indication, the Oscars should be something to look forward to!
