Finally! Some good uns at the Golden Globes ….

…… 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 ….

Oscar 2013 High’s ….

 

The ladies below were definitely among my favourites at this year’s Oscar celebrations.  All very different styles but impeccably tailored and accessorized to perfection!  I champion Zoe Saldana and Naomi Watts for their red carpet choices, simply because they stood out.  No one else wore anything remotely similiar to the event.  Whilst Zoe decided to go with a nude lip and understated make up, Jessica Chastain definitely completed her look with a fantastic red lipstick, channelling Jessica Rabbit with her lightly waved hair.  Just beautiful!  Let’s not forget Jennifer Lawrence in her show stopping Dior Couture gown!  As the face of Dior it was expected that she would wear one of the designer’s gowns but no one would have foreseen the amazing bejewelled back necklace she teamed with the dress which is something I have never seen before. 

Jessica Chastain shines in January!

Jessica Chastain shows us just how to brighten up our January wardrobe.  Simply don an all black outfit which let’s be honest is the best colour choice to hide those few pounds we put on over Christmas, and team with brightly coloured earrings and voila! I’m assuming these ear rings of Jessica’s are horrendously expensive precious stones but the same look can be achieved with costume jewelry. I find the accessories range at H&M and also New Look to be great value for money. So bring out your black jeans, sweater and coat and flash the most colourful ear rings you can find!

The Oscars

The Golden Man Awards are over for yet another year and weren’t they simply fabulous!!  I loved the variety of looks this year with some of the younger actresses such as Jessica Chastain and Michelle Williams rocking some unusual and contemporary shapes and fabrics.  However, I was disappointed to see that it wasn’t Angelina Jolie’s thigh high split in her black velvet Versace dress or Posh’s rather sour face whilst wearing the most beautifully tailored dress from her latest collection that made the headlines. Instead, it was Sacha Baron Cohen that grabbed the front pages with his ridiculous ash tossing stunt and antics on the red carpet for which he was removed by security. I used to think high profile events such as the Oscars were untouchable and such blatant behaviour to grab the spotlight to promote a film in advance of its release would simply be ignored or not tolerated. However, Sacha’s stunt proved even the most prestigious red carpet, Hollywood bash is suspectible. Sad to say that this year’s Oscars and the main reason why people watch this event … for the glamour and fashion …. was overshadowed.
