Golden Globes: The Good, The Bad and The Men
Hollywood’s holiday season kicked off this past weekend at the Beverly Hilton with a pipe bursting and covering the red carpet in black water only hours before the stars were set to walk it. Fancy! It went off with a bang (luckily, despite some manic moments and panicked PAs in tuxedos-the mess was cleaned up and crisis averted). I have been happily drowning in all things Globes for the past 10 days-hence the radio silence-but was happy to wake up Monday morning to what the rest of the world saw Sunday night while I was schlepping garment bags through the lobby of the hotel between the after-parties and these well-dressed celebs. Hollywood was having a moment. From the baby bumps to the wardrobe malfunctions (we saw your topstick Robin Wright) to a handful of perfectly tailored tuxes, the stars indicated that they are going to bring it this awards season, wether we like it or not…and Jennifer Lawrence, the jury is still out. Here’s my two cents on who did it right and who just did it.
Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad: The fit and silhouette of this dress are perfection, she looks flawless per usual. Zoe Saldana in Prabal Gurung: This look has been getting mixed reviews but I am kind of obsessed. First of all, Zoe can do no wrong in my eyes, but I love how unique this dress is from the almost sweetheart neckline to the asymmetry and embellishments. Do I wish it were longer? Maybe. Amy Adams in Valentino: She has never looked better in my opinion. I’m usually not into a necklace with a halter top but hers was the perfect accessory for that plunging neckline that showed off her American Hustle figure. Maybe a little casual next to Beckinsale’s shine but easily my favorite look of the night. Olivia Wilde in Gucci Premiere: We’ve seen a similar look on the carpet of the Globes (Angelina Jolie in Versace circa 2011) but I totally get the struggle of maternity dressing and Olivia does it right by embracing the bump instead of trying to cover it with a camping tent. Pregnancy looks good on her.
THE NOT-SO-BEST DRESSED
Lena Dunham in Zac Posen: That pose and that bustier bodice with that tattoo and short hair…love Lena, love Girls, do not even like this. Kaley Cuoco in Rani Zakhem: Another underwhelming look, when there is so much dress happening, prints are a little much. Kaley is overdoing it with the full skirt, floral print and green eyeshadow, while everything that’s not happening from the waist up isn't very flattering. Drew Barrymore in Monique Lhullier: She should take some notes from Olivia Wilde and embrace it. Paula Patton in Stephanie Rolland: Girl, no.
Bradley Cooper in Tom Ford: I love the simple perfection of this look and I am putting money on it now, Coop will be the Best Dressed Man this year (Paging Ryan Gosling, I smell a competition). Jared Leto in Saint Laurent: I could do without the scarf but cannot get enough of a well-tailored, slim leg, it makes my heart smile…and I want in on all of his beauty secrets. Leonardo DiCaprio in Armani: While it doesn’t show off his Great Gatsby body (maybe it is long gone) I am into the effect of the black buttons. Well done Jack Dawson. Matthew McConaughey in Dolce & Gabbana: A velvet, green, three piece tuxedo. I think we’ve found the ballsy one of the group. “Alright, alright, alright!"
