The Golden Globes might be a major part of the film industry’s award season, recognising and awarding excellence in both film and television but it’s also an opportunity for us to commend (and rebuke!) the outfits that grace the red carpet.
I wanted to share some of my personal favourite outfits that descended upon Hollywood on Monday night, including 3 of THE GOOD, 2 of THE BAD and unfortunately the final award will be for THE UGLY – that’s the outfit that I deem to be the worst from those on show at the event.
So after watching the stars sashay and saunter down the red carpet and scouring the internet for every possible outfit that was on display, to begin, here are my top style picks…
I absolutely adored Jessica Chastain’s choice of gown, it screams classic Hollywood with its plunging halter v-neck that spirals down into an elegant ruche detail and pleated skirt.
The Versace dress is ultra glamourous and the shimmering, coppery bronze tone really sets off her red locks!
Even with all of that cast aside, she finished the look with a smouldering smokey eye complimented by the soft, delicate waves of her hair.
What is this?
Pants on the red carpet? Yes, pants on the red carpet! That’s the reason that this look is so original and note-worthy, Stone should be commended for throwing out the rulebook and opting for the girl-next-door look, yet still appearing incredibly glitzy!
This is a jumpsuit like no other with a detailed bedazzled, rhinestone bodice and a large silk bow with the end-ribbon trailing behind to transform the outfit from every day to runway!
Take note ladies, Beckinsale gives us a lesson in true glamour! Sure, this look has been done before but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it… right?
This floor-sweeping flowy Ellie Saab gown in neutral, champagne tones, shimmers and shines with the glittering, iridescent beaded bodice.
Her hair was fixed into an elegant up-do with subtle make-up and accessorised to perfection.
This might just be a bit *too much* red for the red carpet, it’s a lot of fabric, which also hides her figure!
The box-like shape and structured style of the dress unflatteringly drowns Dunham. I can’t think of many people that could pull off this outfit.
The best part of the dress is the silk finish of the material but it’s far too plain for my liking, especially for an event such as this!
Jemima Kirke & Mike Mosberg
Joining her Girls co-star to take the title for one of the worst dressed at the Globes this year is Jemima Kirke, who took the cape trend to a whole new level with a Kimono inspired outfit consisting of a cropped cape and high-waisted skirt.
To make it worse, it was a double red carpet no-no, as her husband accompanied her and saw the occasion as a casual affair dressing in everyday jeans and trainers.
These are two contrasting looks that don’t make the cut, whether they’re alone or together!
It’s painful for me to choose Lana Del Rey for the “ugly” category because she is, actually, such a fabulous beauty and I’m a huge fan but I can’t be biased.
She seems to be channelling a Disney-esque mermaid look in this satin, teal dress but the colour washes her out and the pleats are incredibly dated.
I love Lana for her usual retro stylings but, on this occasion, it was just a few too many steps backwards in time…
And….. that’s a wrap!
Who do you think was the best dressed? Who was defeated in the style battles?
