Good evening addicts! As those of you who have been following this blog for a while already know... last night was one of my fave nights of the year. Yes, I'm obsessed with award show season. I love it, I live for it, & I love that my husband watches them with me (full of his own opinions of course).
Overall, I thought last night was pretty fantastic. There wasn't really anyone who just completely missed the mark.. in all fairness they're wanting to feature their personal style on the red carpet.
I loved the palettes people chose, the hair, the makeup, the jewels. There was never an, "oh my god what was she thinking" moment.. just a few, "hmm... not sure about that one".
On the opposite end of the spectrum: those who were good, were really good...
Jessica Alba in Gucci.
Such a fresh color. Her skin was literally glowing & her hair was exactly what this dress needed. I love that while this isn't a completely out there look it's still not something we've seen a million times before.
Angelina Jolie in Versace.
Clean, classic, & crisp. Always knows how to do the red carpet.
Charlize Theron in Dior Couture.
A fan favorite & such an awesome statement. She's always 'bringing it' & we all seem to agree on what she 'brought'.
Claire Danes in J.Mendel.
I am a sucker for an awesome back detail, so between the plunge & the adornment I'm literally obsessed with this. I really love the whole: business in the front, party in the back vibe ;)
Diana Agron in Giles Deacon.
What amazing detail. So cool.
Elle McPherson in Zac Posen.
A bit bridal but the silhouette is awesome. Everyone couldn't stop talking about how young she looks.. rightfully so.
Emma Stone in Lanvin.
It's official (as if it weren't already) Emma Stone is my girl crush. She is so cool it's not even fair. Who else can wear an eagle accented belt to the Golden Globes?? The color + the styling = flawless.
Stacy Kiebler in Valentino.
Best Arm Candy.. George Clooney of course ;)
Kate Winslet in Jenny Packham.
So unusual for Jenny Packham to not bedazzle a dress! Love the shape on Kate's awesomely curvy body!
Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli.
Husband's favorite ;) Love the shape, the color & her. Such a simple yet bold statement!
Michelle Williams in Jason Wu.
Her acceptance speech may be one of the cutest ever. Always such a vintage & different vibe on the red carpet. Someone I always look forward to seeing!
Mila Kunis in Dior.
Some called this 'boring'. While this is simple I appreciate that this is a nod to the fact that this year she was a presenter vs. a nominee.. One must know it's role on the carpet & Mila fit hers perfectly.
After the holidays, in these cold wintery months, we don't have too much to look forward to past our peppermint mochas..
Fear not! addicts, award show season is upon us.. and while the major media buzzed about ones have yet to start we have a few gorge Critic's Choice Awards red carpet looks to gush over while waiting for Sunday.
Not one of my favorites from Diane Kruger but I do appreciate the attempt at trying something different with this Prada gown.
She's becoming one of my faves on the red carpet. Fashion forward like her sisters, Elizabeth looks radiant in this bright Pucci dress.
We know that there has been a fair share of chatter about Clooney's choice in having Stacy as his current main squeeze... but I have to say: So far so good. The few times she's attended events with him she's looked ravishing & this Armani look continues the trend superbly.
Kirstin looks young & hip in this Christian Dior tulle dress.
Michelle Williams looking classic & chic in this Chanel gown. I love how unexpected the hemline is.
First of all, when I went to see The Descendants last week there wasn't a moment where Shailene Woodley was on screne where I wasn't asking myself, "Could she be any prettier??". I also couldn't wait to see her dolled up on the red carpet and to me this simple Calvin Klein gown is a great way to kick things off!
LOVE this color & definitely agree on her win for Best Actress for her role in The Help. Viola Davis is rockin' this Raoul gown!!
Statuesque Charlize Theron looking divine in this Azzedine Alaia gown. This is the perfect to do a simple black dress in a very different way.
Emma Stone. Need I say more? She seriously can do no wrong. Young, vibrant, & unexpected - a red carpet trifecta.
What's good fashion without a little risk? Think about it.. the numerous 'oh my' moments everyone talks about from the catwalk to the red carpet are typically those that push the envelope (flashback to JLo's barely there Versace number that had everyone talking... for- well.... ever).
With award show season (the best time of the year) upon us, I thought I'd share the awesome InStyle summary of the Golden Globe moments that had us all worried about a wardrobe malfunction.
