Last year, my very first post on my blog was my round up of the best and worst dressed from the Golden Globes, so it is tradition to share my thoughts on this year’s fashion at the Golden Globes.
My fashion senses were tingling on Sunday while watching the 73rd Golden Globes Award Show. Next to Christmas, my favorite time of the year has to be award season. Nothing beats watching the celebrities strut on the red carpet while wearing elaborate gowns.
For the most part, every celebrity stunned in their designer dresses and set a high expectation for future award shows. I noticed a few popular trends at the Golden Globes, including capes, cut outs, hues of reds and pinks, plunging necklines, and pockets.
Someday I hope to be one of the correspondents reporting from the red carpet, but for right now I’ll use my blog to share my fashion do’s and don’ts from the red carpet. Keep on reading to see which celebrities hit a homerun when it came to their style and which celebrities should have reconsidered their dress choice.
Lady Gaga- After seeing Lady Gaga perform at Madison Square Garden a few years ago, Lady Gaga will forever have my heart. I am a huge Lady Gaga fan and so happy she took home her first Golden Globe. She looked outstanding in her black velvet Versace dress. Her dress featured a sweetheart neckline and a fitted corset, giving her an hourglass shape. She completed her glamorous look with of course diamonds, a curly up do, and lots of lashes. I was so happy to see Lady Gaga choose a more sophisticated look, instead of wearing a meat dress like she did at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.
Amy Adams- I was so glad to see some color on the red carpet. I am a huge fan of Amy Adam’s daring blood orange Versace gown. The bold orange color with the perfect amount of sparkle looked beautiful with her hair color and skin tone. After seeing her dress, I really hope this orange shade becomes a huge trend for upcoming award shows and the spring season.
Laverne Cox- Laverne Cox looked fierce in her pure white, figure hugging dress by Elizabeth Kennedy. I am a huge fan of her classic look. Sometimes simplicity is the way to go when it comes to the red carpet. I love how she accessorized with emerald colored jewelry and a vampy lip color. Perfection!
Jenna Dewan Tatum- Jenna Dewan Tatum’s dress resembled a starry night sky. The deep blue dress embellished with sequins is by Zuhair Murad and certainly made a statement on the red carpet. I love her dress because it features two of the hottest trends this season, the plunging neckline and pockets. Plus, every red carpet needs some sparkle.
Olivia Wilde- Olivia Wilde can do no wrong when it comes to fashion. Her form fitting, burgundy, sequins dress by Michael Kors, featured a risky low neckline. I appreciate her choice to accessorize with a statement necklace that complimented the deep red color of her dress. I also loved her eggplant and burgundy shimmery eye shadow, which is a colorful take on the typical smokey eye.
Jaimie Alexander- If I had to only choose one best dressed celebrity, my award would have to go to Jaimie Alexander. Her dress designed by Genny was stunning. I am obsessed with the rich jewel toned emerald color, deep v neckline, and the pockets. The pattern of her dress is so abstract and eye-catching. Also her smokey eye is on point and really makes her eyes pop. Perfection from head to toe.
Cate Blanchett- What is up with this dress? There is just way too much going on. Cate Blanchett’s dress by Givenchy features silk, sheer paneling, and fringe. I don’t know where to look. Plus the pastel pink color is just wrong. Better luck next time.
Katy Perry- Between the Bump It in her hair and this tight dress by Prada, Katy Perry tops my worst dressed list. I really hate the color of her dress because it reminds me of a Pepto Bismol bottle . She better bring her “A” game to the Grammy’s because her look at the Golden Globes was anything but fabulous.
Natalie Dormer- Natalie Dormer’s J. Mendel dress would have been better if it did not include the awkward off the shoulder look and black neckpiece. Awkward, undone, and mismatched are a few words I like to use to describe her look.
Regina King- Regina King’s dress looks more like a Halloween costume than a Golden Globes gown. Her Krikor Jabotian dress features a white cape and chunky gold sequins. Her dress is outrageous! I never thought this was possible, but there is way to much sparkle and sequins.
Rooney Mara- I am all for fashion risks and unique looks, but Rooney Mara’s Alexander McQueen dress leaves me speechless and not in a good way. First, the pale pink color blends in with her skin tone, making her look washed out. Plus the ruffles of her dress look like her dress went through a shredder, which is never a good look.
Kate Hudson- The only thing on point is Kate Hudson’s abs. Other than that, I do not love her Michael Kors crop top and matching skirt outfit. The nude sparkly color washes her out. Plus that random piece of fabric around her neck just confuses me.
And that concludes my 2016 Golden Globes fashion recap. Stay tuned for more best and worst dressed posts. Let me know in the comments below what celebrity looks were your favorite or were questionable.
