Awards season. My favourite time of year. During last night’s Golden Globes I laughed, I cried, I swooned over Leo, but most importantly I judged the outfits on the red carpet. Below are the best and the worst.
Jennifer Lawrence stood out in a bright red, floor grazing column dress with side cut-outs and a sleek overlay. The dress is a custom made Dior (obvi – since she’s the face of the brand) but the diamond collar necklace from Chopard was everything. The look was polished, sophisticated, but still true to J-Law’s fun and spunky personality.
More proof that Jennifer Lopez doesn’t age. The yellow Giambattista Valli gown is getting very mixed reviews online but I’m obsessed. Obsessed with the cape, obsessed with the merlot lip, obsessed with the shorter hair that we’re not used to seeing on her, and obsessed with what the colour does for her skin tone. Obsessed with it all. Of course she keeps it sexy with a high slit and 200 carats worth of Harry Winston diamonds because, come on, she’s J-Lo.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is probably the only person in the world who could pull off this spaghetti strapped, slinky, sequined, gold Atelier Versace gown which has put her on every best dressed list across the board. Then again, she could wear a garbage bag and still look flawless. Last night she also announced her engagement to Jason Statham while sporting some new bling in the form of a diamond ring.
Despite the fact that I have no idea why Olivia Palermo was at the Golden Globes, let alone walking the red carpet, I dug her outfit. It was slightly more casual than most, which makes sense given she wasn’t up for any awards or presenting (so why was she there?) but the colour-blocked midi dress by Madrid designer Delpoza was a winner. It combines a modern print with a bold full skirt with pockets and it definitely makes an impression. Plus, the simple pulled back hair with braids wins her bonus points.
This pains me to say because I love her, but Kate Hudson totally missed the mark. I can acknowledge that she has a great bod, but a cropped tube top baring your whole stomach should never be on the red carpet even if it is Michael Kors. She looked like a mermaid. Plus the choker in the same fabric? Very dance costume-y.
The winner for the worst look of all time goes to Jane Fonda and her coffee filter inspired collar from Yves Saint Laurent. Also very reminiscent of Jerry Seinfeld’s puffy shirt. Two things you never want to draw outfit inspiration from.
This might be an unfavourable opinion but I am not a fan of Eva Longoria’s too cute ensemble from George Hobeika. The shape is great, white looks great on her, and I can even get past the flowers, but the double bow at the neck and waist is a no. She’s petite to begin with and this makes her look like a child.
It’s difficult for men to blow a red carpet look when all they need is a perfectly fitted tux, but Channing Tatum did it with his hair. My most favourite headline of the night goes to USA Today – “Channing Tatum’s Golden Globes hair is everything wrong with the world”. Yes. Just yes.
