Listen, I’m all for a modern twist, new fashion trends translated from the runways to high street etc but black leggings paired with a Christian Dior gown at the Golden Globes red carpet??? I’m sorry, this just doesn’t work for me. In fact it’s such a ridiculous notion that I had to double check this actually really happened …. and to my dismay …. yep it was real.
From the front it actually doesn’t look that bad. In fact it looks like a cool, simple dress in a scarlet red which is beautiful on Emma. Yeah, you’d be thinking, Mmmm not much effort made there but you know she looks young, fresh and free not stuffy and uncomfortable like some of the stars clad in sequin. BUT then tragedy strikes.
Yes people, black, cropped trousers which actually look more like leggings and then blue, yes you heard me right, I said BLUE shoes.
And it doesn’t just end there ….. the look is finished with one ear ring.
Don’t get me wrong, at a different event, this look would have been so cool and unique. I would have looked at it in a completely different way. But, I’m sorry, the Golden Globes are usually a showcase and big red carpet event to prelude the Oscars. This was NOT the occasion to wear this. Case of great dress, wrong event.
…… Well not exactly mind-blowingly fabulous, but a hell of a lot better than most!!!
Taylor Swift was certainly in favour of the colour trend that seemed to be everywhere at this event but unlike some of her peers, she seems to have been able to wear the dress rather than the other way around. Perhaps it’s the fact that she’s very tall and slight in figure which means the dress doesn’t swamp her. Also, the fact that it’s black paired with another colour might also have helped with this style as well rather than two clashing colours or a mixture of hues all at once.
Jessica Chastain shows us how a simple, black, well shaped Givenchy dress can look great on the red carpet. It’s not a boring choice …. although doesn’t massively excite me either, it fits her body really well and she looks effortlessly chic.
I do like this fishtail gown on Kate Beckinsale, who always chooses the more “glamorous” options for red carpets and you can see why! The sex siren style just suits her! She always keeps her hair and make up nice and simple but pairs this with a va va voom dress and Voila! Not my favourite dress at this event but at least she looks like she made a bloody effort!
I have two blog posts left on the 2014 Golden Globes …. One I will reserve completely for Emma Watson in Christian Dior and the other on the dresses that I really loved at this year’s event and there aren’t too many of them ….
How STUNNING does Charlize Theron look!!!!!!! This custom made Christian Dior gown is simply breath taking. It’s so simple, but oozes elegance and style. Charlize knows how to wear a dress there’s no doubt about that. She exudes confidence and absolutely rocks that super short pixie style haircut. Even with the “boyish” crop, Charlize still looks the epitome of feminine grace. The structured waist of this gown is the only “hard” thing about this entire look.
Charlize also very cleverly kept her make up very simple but wait you check out a close up of her wrist …………you should look at the sparkle!!! OMG, absolutely gorgeous! This lady is 37 years old and left the younger starlets, half her age for dust on the Oscar red carpet this year. One hundred percent, without a doubt, my favourite look of the night.
