Golden Globe Awards 2017: The Best Red Carpet Style
In the words of Maeve, “fashion police, assemble!”
Ah yes, it’s that time of the year again, just when we’re down in the dumps, deep in post-holiday January blues and with resolutions failing fast, we can finally pass judgement on those privileged enough to walk the red carpet. No shame here folks, we will ‘ooh’, ‘aah’ and ‘nah’ all we want.
While the Golden Globe Awards are considered by many as a more relaxed, casual red carpet affair (is there really such a thing?), it doesn’t stop folk going to (tinsel) town and praise the fashion gods that they do because my Monday morning is made that bit better thanks to their efforts.
I’m counting down the days to see current crush du jour Casey Affleck’s performance in Manchester By The Sea and can’t wait to toe tap along with La La Land, but to heck with the awards and who deserves what, let’s concentrate on what really matters; the gowns!
Emma Stone is simply a dazzling darling in her Valentino gown embellished with glittering stars, a nod presumably to La La Land‘s track, ‘City of Stars’ (we don’t miss a trick, do we?).
Amy Adams never puts a foot wrong on the red carpet and this sequined Tom Ford number is no different. When Tom’s your BFF, you can always bet you’ll be on the best-dressed list.
Last, but by no means least, Lily Collins. Ah, the Disney princess dress, normally reserved for the Oscars, Lily went against the grain and pulled out all the stops in this stunning, soft pink Zuhair Murad gown.
Now, a few observations. Trend-wise, it’s clear that yellow or, indeed, chartreuse, is going to be big this spring.
Likewise, also big, bling. As always the magpie in us spotted some serious jewels on the carpet, and we’re not talking about Sofia Vergara.
Chandelier earrings and plenty of pearls were this year’s accessory du choix.
Until next time, folks.
Over and out.
