Last night the 74th annual Golden Globes Awards took place in Beverly Hills, honoring the best of America’s film and television from 2016. One thing I’ve always appreciated about the Golden Globes is that, like the Oscars, celebrities of all calibers seem to put a great deal of care and consideration into what they wear on the red carpet. As per usual with this sort of thing, there were the fashion fails and misses, but we shan’t concern ourselves with that. Today let’s take a look back to last night and my Top Ten fashion picks that rocked the red carpet (*in no particular order, and I own no rights to any of these photos):
1. Lily Collins in Zuhair Murad
I think what immediately caught my attention about this look is how regal Lily comes across. From head to toe she complements herself repeatedly. This blush gown by the always incredible Zuhair Murad is a lacy dream. Sheer at the neck and ending in a luscious but if train, it is a courtly piece of eye candy with both volume and texture. Not to mention how to wear pink right on the red carpet, without being reminiscent of a certain stomach relief elixir that we store away in our medicine cabinets. Lily’s high, but soft, upstyle carries along with the regal vibe, and her deep wine lip is the perfect punch of drama to keep her beauty on trend and elegant. This was probably one of my most fave looks of the evening.
2. Sienna Miller in Michael Kors Collection
I can’t quite put my finger on what I love precisely about this look Sienna wore, courtesy of Michael Kors collection. I think because it looks easy and effortless, but also appropriately chic for the event. The snow white gown carried a subtle texture throughout, with mid section baring cut-outs for trend’s sake. Her choice to accessorize with pearls by Tiffany jewelry is really what elevated this look to a chic level, while her loosely styled high ponytail lent a casual vibe, marrying everything together for an overall great look.
3. Kristin Cavallari in Idan Cohen
Can I first off say how much I am loving Kristin Cavallari more than ever lately?! She has become quite a powerhouse mama after parting ways with her former Laguna lifestyle. She is looking quite poised and polished here in this sparkly number by Idan Cohen. The deep plunging neckline remains chic with a sheer mesh insert, while the silhouette hugs her petite figure like a flirty and feminine glove. The sparkly pattern is reminiscent of Art Deco, which lends to a modern day Gatsby vibe, while her hair and makeup is a polished take on a more natural glamour.
4. Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham
Kristen Bell is looking like quite the dark temptress, in all the right ways, in this black sequined number by Jenny Packham. The name Jenny Packham skyrocketed when she became a favorite of the Duchess of Cambridge herself, my BFF, Kate Middleton. Here we are getting a bit of a different take from the designer, merging sexy and chic into one showstopping look. The plunging squared neckline is a different, albeit appreciated, take from the usual V, while the black sequins are both stylish and demanding of attention. The fitted waist and long sleeves give a lovely silhouette, which Kristen complements with a dark smokey eye and softly sculpted blonde waves.
5. Mandy Moore in Naeem Khan
So much yes I am throwing at Mandy Moore right now in this dress by Naeem Khan. The songbird that is forever singing Candy in my book has been continuing her reign starring in the much acclaimed This is Us (which returns New tomorrow at 10!). This look is probably tied with Lily Collins for my tip top fave. I love navy blue on the red carpet, and Mandy looks like a dream in this flowy piece, complete with cape-style sleeves. The sheer element of the material keeps the look soft, which Mandy accessorized thoughtfully. Her sleek middle part eases into soft beach waves, while her fresh face is lash-lovely and dewy. Such a romantic vibe with a hint of sexy from that plunging neckline. One for the gold star books, Mandy.
