Happy awards season everyone! Tis’ the season for watching the Golden Globes, Grammy’s, and Academy Awards, just to name a few.
Last night I glued myself to the television to watch the Golden Globes, especially all the action on the red carpet. To be honest, I hardly knew any of the television shows or movies that were nominated; instead I was more interested in the fashion.
The most popular trend I saw last night was lots and lots of sparkle. Most dresses were neutral toned, including white, cream, and black, and then embellished with tons of sparkle and sequins.
While watching the Golden Globes, I was studying the celebs’ dresses and designers, so with that being said I have chosen my best and worst dressed of the Golden Globes.
Dakota Johnson- Dakota Johnson wore a beautiful silver, sparkly dress from Chanel’s fall 2014 couture line. Her metallic gown shined on the red carpet. I think the silver dress included the perfect balance of sparkle and fringe, as well as a slit that showed the right amount of leg.
Emma Stone- Who says you have to wear a dress to an award show? Emma Stone broke that rule by wearing a jumpsuit designed by Lanvin. Her top is covered in sequins and her pants are simple; however, in the back there is a big bow. The big bow is an unexpected detail. Her look was simple, but edgy. I give Emma Stone kudos for being different.
Siena Miller- This dress was anything but boring, especially with that plunging neckline. In my opinion, Siena Miller’s beaded Miu Miu gown was fresh and original. The jeweled detailing added an elegant touch.
Reese Witherspoon- Reese shimmered in a strapless, sparkly Calvin Klein gown. Her gown was glamorous, perfect for the fabulous evening. If I was invited to the Golden Globes, I would wear a dress similar to Reese Witherspoon.
Lorde- Lorde’s Narcisco Rodriquez suit and Neil Lane choker is the perfect way to make a bold statement at any awards show. Her midriff top added a feminine look to her menswear suit. Lorde impressed me with her daring choice to wear a suit. I believe that fashion is all about taking risks and Lorde certainly took a risk with her suit.
Keira Knightly- She should have stopped at the butterflies. There was no need to add the lace collar or lace trim. Her Chanel dress included a butterfly design and lace detailing. Without the lace, she would have been on the decently dressed list rather than the worst dressed list.
Kerry Washington- I have never been a big fan of the color-blocking trend, especially when pairing two opposite colors together. Her dress, designed by British designer Mary Karantzou, featured metallic colors, which in my opinion clashed.
Tina Fey- Tina Fey was a great co-host, but her dress was a miss. Her dress, designed by Antonio Berardi, did not flatter her body. I feel the puffy bottom made her look like a marshmallow, not a celebrity.
Lana Del Ray– Is that Little Mermaid on the red carpet? Her Travilla dress made her a look like a mermaid, and not in a good way. I believe the pleats and aqua color did not suit the red carpet.
That’s a wrap. Again, the Golden Globes never failed to impress. The next big award show is the Grammy’s, which airs on Sunday, February 8th. You better believe that I will be ranking the best and worst dressed for the Grammy’s. The celebrities better bring their A-game.
