I sort of have a love/hate relationship with award shows. I always go into them hoping to see some of Tinseltown’s most gorgeous gals wearing dresses that I can only dream of, but am left feeling ticked off about the stupid things that these ladies decided to don instead. Another thing that really irks me is the sort of unspoken rule that you “must love” so and so’s dress because, well, she’s so and so! It’s The Emperor’s New Clothes and I’m not buying it. Before I even had a chance to tune in, my Twitter feed was blowing up with “ANGIE ANGIE ANGIE” and “REESE REESE REESE.” So, I’m gonna go ahead and say it: I didn’t like it. Either one.
This year’s Golden Globes wasn’t all bad: there were heartfelt speeches, good laughs, and some serious trends that you need to pay attention to:
- You need a headband.
- You need red lips.
- You need to invest in some Spanx for the sexy mermaid silhouettes that dominated.
- You need to stop using self tanner. (I hope it was just the lighting or maybe a bad feed- but wow, was Hollywood orange!).
Here are my favorite looks from this year’s red carpet:
Charlize Theron in Dior, Nicole Kidman in Versace, Jessica Alba in Gucci Claire Danes in J. Mendel, Salma Hayek in Gucci, Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci
There were a few other honorable mentions by Shailene Woodley (Marchesa), Julie Bowen (Reem Acra), and Elle MacPhereson (Zac Posen), but again… nothing that blew. my. mind. I hope this was just the ladies warming up for the rest of award season. With access to the best designers and stylists in the world… I expect a little more.
Now hit the showers.
