This year’s, 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, were full of surprises, laughs, high slits and so much more! The spot for the biggest trend of the red carpet is tied between gowns in all shades of red and thigh-high slits! (Angie really started a trend at last year’s Oscars eh!?) Here is our take on the Best Dressed List from this year’s red carpet!
Not your typical simple black dress, Kate Hudson is beautiful as ever in the black Alexander McQueen gown adorned by gold beading. The simplicity and understated elegance of this dress highlights her beauty even more! Gorge!
WOW! Eva Longoria in a custom Emilio Pucci!!! She just never seizes to stop wowing us! We love the juxtaposition of the sexy sheer bottom with a thigh high slit and how the dress is all covered up at the top with a delicate peek-a-boo cut. That’s what you get when you put together all the gorgeous trends of the century– see through skirts, slits, open back, lace and sequin! VOILA!
Gorgeous in her melon toned mermaid dress, Jessica Alba is a delicious sight! We love the ruffles on the tail of the dress. The dress is from Oscar de la Renta’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection and was perfectly paired with a Harry Winston diamond bib necklace! But really, Jessica can literally wear anything and will look stunning!
Lucy Liu – Rocking the floral Print, very Marie Antoinette of her and so unlike anything we’ve seen on the red carpet this year or any other year for that matter!! We love the pattern and the fit of this dress! This is the winner for us!
Halle Berry – We feel like there is no need to comment here. Stunning in anything she wears, Halle has flawless red-carpet style every time. This year, her rose coloured, flowy Versace gown truly accentuated her beauty on stage! We love the feminine high slit along the right leg, slight midriff exposure and the corset waste details.
Jennifer Garner – the proud wife of award winning actor, Ben Affleck, was looking gorgeous last night in a deep red sequin dress by Vivienne Westwood, with a pretty décolleté and unexpected draped bustier. The dress is so flattering in everything from the colour, texture to the form and the short train.
Another gorgeous gown that caught our eye this year on the red carpet was the stunning, bright red Oscar de la Renta, worn by the ‘New Girl’ start, Zoey Deschanel. Known for her down-to-earth style and original nail art, Zoey really shocked us this year in this classic, princess-like number! She may not be winning an award this year, but her dress sure is worthy of our Best Dressed List!
And you can’t have a best dressed list without a list of ‘not so great’ looks! We are not saying these are the worst looks, just saying, we were expecting more from these actresses and were disappointed.
Lady in Red, Jennifer Lawrence, wore a hot red statement gown by Raf Simons for Dio, worthy of her winner status! However, we must comment – are we the only ones that thought that the bodice was weird around the bust??? Are we going back to the days of Madonna, when conic bustiers were the thing!? The skirt of the dress is no doubt a beautiful form that flatters her curves, but we just don’t love the piece all together.
Jennifer Lopez is always pushing the limits with her fashion, but her barely there Zuhair Murad lace dress is a little too much…for us anyway. Lace is always classy, but there was just too little of it covering the neutral part of the gown, giving the impression that she was wearing it over her bare body. Obviously we know that she isn’t really bare, but then we are left to see these large patches of this plain nude ugly fabric and the SEAMS!? We always expect JLo to wear something revealing and goddess-like, but this is just over the top!
Julianne Moore- sticking to what works best for her, she took the stage in a covered up black and white gown. This dress is really avant garde and is not actually flattering to her figure and it’s an anticipated look for her, as we feel like we’ve been her in this black and white, style before. But I guess when a designer like Tom Ford makes you a gown, you wear it!
Amanda Seyfried wore this strange off white lace and chiffon gown that blended in with the pale skin, washed her out completely and also did nothing to accentuate her feminine curves. It was a weird cut and maybe she was trying to make a statement, but we are not fans of this type of experimentation in front of millions of viewers on your big day.
As for our ‘non-fashion’ review of the awards…Most exciting was Jennifer Lawrence winning best actress! You go girl! If you follow our blogs, we told you she was a girl on fire last year after her stellar performance in the ‘Hunger Games’!!
Biggest surprise…actually, we can’t decide what was more wierd…Borat being in Les Miserables or Ben Affleck winning best picture for Argo! REALLY!? Argo was good, but not BEST picture good! We thought there were so many other amazing movies out last year – Django…Zero Dark Thirty?!
Funniest moment – Will Farrel and Kristen Wiig were hilarious presenting the nominees!
Best speech – hands down, Daniel Day Lewis!
Worst Speech – Jodi Foster! We still don’t get why people were crying when Jodi Foster took the stage. It was the most random speech ever and wasn’t really going anywhere – she talked about her sexuality (are you coming out or not? make up your mind dammit), PRIVACY really? – who doesn’t struggle with that in Hollywood, it comes with the territory, no?, THEN, she made fun of some people in the audience- inside joke maybe? (except its not funny to the rest of the world JODI).. and finally closed with a really emotional ending as she thanked her mom (that was sweet, let’s give that to her!). I don’t know maybe we just didn’t get it… did anyone out there figure it out? If so, please explain :)
