Golden Globes Fashion Recap

*Disclaimer: Although this is not Kate Middleton related, I love to cover award season! Enjoy!*

Awards season is upon us at last! To kick it off, last night was the 73rd Golden Globe Awards. Ricky Gervais was hosted and he did not disappoint. He had plenty of jabs directed at Bill Cosby, Caitlin Jenner and even Mel Gibson. But Ricky wasn’t the only jokester of the night. Plenty of other stars had their funny moments (whether intentional or not).

Some of my favorite funny moments:

When bffs Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer presented together and Amy decided to give herself a celeb nickname.

Another funny moment was when nominee Aziz Ansari thought he would lose to Jeffrey Tambor with dignity.

And one last moment was when Lady Gaga went to accept her award and bumped into Leo DiCaprio…

Leo’s face though…

On a more serious note, one of the best moments of the night was when Sylvester Stallone won for his performance in Creed. He got a much deserved standing O and closed his speech in the best way possible.

Now… moving on to fashion. For some reason, in my opinion, the fashion was sort of blasé this year. Collectively, there were not as many stars that just blew me away as there have been in past years.

Nonetheless, there were several stars that did not disappoint. Here are my top 7 gowns from last night.

Jennifer-Lawrence Dior Couture

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Couture

Since J-Law is a Dior spokesperson, it was no surprise that she wore Dior. She has worn Dior to many of the past award shows. This dress. Major heart-eyes emoji. I. love. it. Red is such a beautiful color on Jen. And that necklace may be even better than the dress. The color, necklace and the cutouts of the dress make for a perfect combination– youthful and sophisticated all-in-one.


 

Jenna-Dewan-Tatum Marchesa

Marchesa is one of my all-time favorite brands. I love the silhouette of this dress and the beautiful, rich color. Jenna is famous for wearing full gowns like this one. The neckline is revealing without being gauche. This whole ensemble is great– from the sleek hairstyle to the gorgeous clutch.


 

Queen-Latifah Badgley Mischka

Queen Latifah in Badgley Mischka

First of all, I love Queen Latifah. Second of all, I love this dress. What’s not to love? This turquoise-teal color looks stunning with Queen Latifah’s skin tone and hair color. And the neckline is to-die-for. The little touch of embellishment at the top is perfect. Work it, Queen!


 

Emmy-Rossum Armani Prive

Another gorgeous red dress of the evening was worn by Emmy Possum. She looks so chic and svelte in the dress. It is simple and sophisticated. I am in love with the necklace she paired with the gown. It reminds me of Naomi Watts’ snake necklace from last year’s awards. If I had to title this look, it would be “Old Hollywood Glamour meets New Hollywood Chic.”


 

Jennifer-Lopez Giambattista Valli

Jennifer Lopez in Giambattista Valli

J.Lo is one of those rare Hollywood beauties that get more beautiful as they age. Going along with the cape trend, J.Lo’s dress is a cross between canary yellow and citron. I love the ruching at the waist and the gorgeous train. Her shoes add a great sparkle along with her necklace and clutch. The addition of the cape was a fashion risk and it paid off in my opinion.


Bryce-Dallas-Howard Jenny Packham.jpg

Bryce Dallas-Howard in Jenny Packham

As if you needed another reason to adore Bryce Dallas-Howard, instead of getting a custom-made dress, Bryce went out to her local Neiman Marcus and picked this dress up. Jenny Packham can do no wrong. I love the lace on this dress and really love the sequin detail. Perfection!


 

Lily-James Marchesa.jpg

Lily James in Marchesa

Another gorgeous win for Marchesa. This dress is great on so many different levels. It is simple but not plain. The color usually would wash someone out but looks very flattering on Lily. This dress screams ethereal ballerina. I also really like the makeup she chose to wear.

That’s a wrap, folks. I’ll be covering all the major award shows in the next few months so be sure to keep an eye out!

Golden Globes 2015 Red Carpet Recap

**Although my first love is blogging on the Duchess of Cambridge, my second love is the red carpet and awards season…Here is my red carpet recap of the Golden Globes**

If you have the same love for award shows as I do, then you probably watched the Golden Globes last night. As usual, E! did great coverage on the arrivals of all the stars and then Amy Poehler and Tina Fey killed it onstage as hosts! I love them. They are as funny and hilarious as they come.

But, my personal favorite part of the Globes (apart from the show itself) is all the fashion. Hollywood did not disappoint last night. They brought their A-game. They dressed to impress. And any other fashion cliches you can think of.

There were quite a few trends last night that appeared throughout the red carpet. One of my favorite trends was white! Stars such as Kate Hudson, Emily Blunt, and Rosemund Pike all rocked white gowns. Who says you can’t wear white after labor day?

Another trend that rocked the red carpet was metallic/gray. Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore, Dakota Johnson, and Diane Kruger all wore different shades of metallic grays.

Here are some of my favorites from the night…

Ellie Kemper
Ellie Kemper in Naeem Khan

Although I never saw her interviewed, Ellie’s dress caught my attention in the background…and it was love at first sight. The dress, paired with a loose updo and a bold red lip did anything but disappoint! This might be my fave of all! Side note: Be sure to look out for Ellie in the all new Netflix series “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” coming in March (its created by Tina Fey, need I say more???).


NBC's "72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards" - Arrivals
Emily Blunt in Michael Kors

Emily Blunt was nominated for Best Performance by an actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical but sadly lost to Amy Adams. However, she absolutely killed on the red carpet. This white Michael Kors dress showed just the right amount of skin without showing too much. And that aqua blue jewelry…love it! Perfect updo, perfect accessories, and perfect dress!! And how cute are her and John Krasinski?? Answer: the cutest!


Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon in Calvin Klein

Reese is another one who worked metallic on the red carpet. She makes fashion look effortless. This look was simple but glam. She accented the flashy dress with subdued, side swept waves and a beautiful smokey eye. Let’s just face it, Reese knows how to own the red carpet.


72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals
Chrissy Teigen in Zuhair Murad

A dress fit for an angel? Chrissy Teigen did not disappoint in this Zuhair Murad creation. All the beading in this dress is exquisite! This dress was very elegant with the high neckline and she went with a high pony to make sure everyone could see all the detail in her dress! Definitely a fashion hit!


Julianne Moore
Julianne Moore in Givenchy Couture

Can you believe that Julianne Moore is 54?!? She was yet another celeb who wore a metallic dress on the red carpet. I love the fit of this dress and how it goes into gray/black ombré at the bottom. Everything about this look is on point- the dress, the hair, the makeup, the jewelry! Well done, Julianne!
