Alright, I admit it. I watched Golden Globes, almost all of it even though I’ve only seen one–that’s right, one–of the films or television programs mentioned or honored last night. There were some bad jokes, and some lackluster moments, but I do love me some red carpet and evening gowns. So, congratulations to all the wonderful, beautiful, handsome talented winners, and now how about those dresses?
Gina Rodriguez wore a beautiful navy blue gown by Zac Posen. I love navy for evening gowns, and this one was sophisticated and feminine, a smidge youthful and sweet with the perfect splash of ice with her earrings and bracelet. Navy is always a good choice for evening gowns.
It’s always refreshing to see patterns and prints on these fabulous gowns, and Rachel McAdams nailed it in this one with a gorgeous red and black floral with a bit of shimmer and drape. The red lipstick was the perfect accessory. I’d wear this one, you know, if I ever go to the Golden Globes.
Kate Winslet. Again with the navy. She doesn’t stray too much from understated, svelte looks, but they really work for her. I especially like the neckline and the contrasting textures on this one, the subtle slit, and how the color complements her peaches-and-cream complexion. A great dress to wear for an acceptance speech, yes?
This white Louis Vuitton number might be my top pick of the evening. The white, the pleats, the ruffles, the back…age appropriate, perfect on her slim frame and beautiful skin tone. Perfection.
And as for basic black, Helen Mirren might have worn it best. She was gorgeous in this curve-hugging gown. Alluring but not an insult to her age or her elegance or her incredible figure. She’s obviously having a bit of fun on that red carpet. And the Harry Winston jewels? Just right.
There were plenty of other fabulous looks last night–Brie Larson, Julianne Moore and Judith Light all come to mind. Did you have a favorite Golden Globe look? Any that flopped for you?
