Golden Globes Fashion Round-Up

Pinterest Google+

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.

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 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!

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!

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
