Awards season is one of my most favourite times of the year, so I’ve been a bit disappointed with the slow start we’ve had this season style-wise. The ensembles at the People’s Choice Awards were completely mundane, and I was left rather uninspired by the Golden Globes the as well.
I wasn’t going to bother with a post about Golden Globes fashion until I read André Leon Talley’s Globes review, which was infused with good and bad fashion and a whole lot of ALT wit. It reminded me that though over 200 gowns sashayed down the red carpet and were largely very blah, there were still a few standouts worth highlighting.
Zoe Saldana’s romantic Louis Vuitton confection was the perfect shade of berry. She seems to be on a roll.
I needed a few days to digest Maggie Gyllenhaal’s RM by Roland Mouret gown. I loved the unexpected colour, the origami pleating and just how beautifully Maggie carried herself in the dress. I wasn’t so much of a fan of the mermaid silhouette, but I got over it.
I also debated January Jones’ look. Black seems like such an unexciting choice of colour when the whole spectrum is at your disposal, but her Lanvin gown has a sense of drama that’s only magnified by its colour. The headband I could do without though.
Grey is not really a colour you choose if you want to shine on the red carpet, but Sofia Vergara’s very unexpected Carolina Herrera just works.
Emily Blunt’s Dolce & Gabbana gown was a safe choice, but gorgeous nonetheless and it was styled with perfection.
Next stop: the SAG Awards this weekend and the Grammys the following week!
