The weather may have been dreary, but the stars were anything but. The stars trotted down the red carpet with dates in one arm and umbrella’s in the other. Although, there were no fashionable umbrellas, there certainly were fashionable gowns at the 2010 Golden Globes.
Gowns in shades of purple seemed to be the most popular hue at the Golden Globes. Star after star arrived in the shade. Sandra Bullock donned a jewel-toned, purple, strapless Bottega Veneta gown, with a sheer back and skirt. Fergie went for a pleated, Grecian style Elie Saab dress in lilac. A stand out in the purple wave was Jane Krakowski. She opted for a one-shoulder J. Mendel gown in dark purple. Chloe Sevigny wore a cascade of lilac ruffles on her Valentino gown.
Someone will always show up in a black gown to an award ceremony. This year there were several stars falling into the black. Courtney Cox wore a black, strapless, column gown by Victoria Beckham. Penelope Cruz stunned everyone in Giorgio Armani Privé. It was a black, lace ball gown with fitted lace sleeves and a beaded neckline. Oscar de la Renta dressed Lea Michele in a frothy, black, strapless ball gown. January Jones, Jennifer Aniston, and Olivia Wilde were also dressed to impress in not-so-basic black.
In the words of Oscar de la Renta, “if you want to impact wear red.” That they did. Cameron Diaz was seeing red in her 1950s inspired, column gown by Alexander McQueen. Zoe Saldana donned a Louis Vuitton cranberry red gown with layers of ruffles. Amy Poeler looked radiant in lipstick red. She wore a one-shoulder gown with a black empire waistline by Jay Godfrey.
No, the stars weren’t naked, but there were quite a few in nude-toned dresses. Maggie Gyllenhaal strolled down the red carpet in a RM by Roland Mouret gown. It was a unique, one-shoulder, mermaid dress in a peach-nude tone. Emily Blunt was breathtaking in a nude, strapless Dolce and Gabbana gown. Drew Barrymore was a vision in her Atelier Versace gown. Barrymore's dress was nude with crystal encrusted shoulder and hip detailing.
The Golden Globes are not typically the most formal of the awards shows, but this season the stars were shinning. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the awards season has in store for the fashion industry. Glamour will abound.
