Hollywood kicks off its 2014 awards season tonight with the Golden Globes, according to a Jan. 12 Chicago Tribune report. From tonight’s biggest party celebrating television and film to the highly anticipated Academy Awards in seven weeks, the red carpet will be full of the hottest and best dressed celebrities in Hollywood.
From “12 Years a Slave,” to “American Hustle,” both nominated for seven Golden Globes, the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards is sure to be a big night for both movies, as well as a preview of what to expect at the Academy Awards.
As far as fashionistas are concerned, the big action happens on the red carpet with questions revolving around gowns, heels and designer names. Big names to expect tonight include regular favorites like Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa and for Jennifer Lawrence, Dior, of course. When it comes to jewelry, Chopard always makes an appearance.
Sandra Bullock’s astronaut movie, “Gravity,” is up on the list of top contenders, and fans are looking forward to what the star will rock. She veered from her normal designers for the People’s Choice 2014 Awards, and chose a color-block number by Peter Pilotte that left critics divided on whether her look was haute or drab.
When it comes to the dresses on the red carpet, Huffington Post is staking its money on Lawrence in Calvin Klein, as opposed to another predictable Dior creation. Pregnant fashionista and "Scandal" star Kerry Washington is slated for Jason Wu or Ralph Lauren, while Anne Hathaway is a likely contender for Valentino, after last year’s Academy Awards dress fiasco. As for Sofia Vergara, it should be another Marchesa stunner.
So what will it be? While fans will find out soon enough, it is safe to say that some stars are partial to what works for them, as they should be.
One thing that is for sure is that that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting the Golden Globes for the second consecutive year. The show airs live Sunday, Jan. 12, on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Until then, check out photos of Lawrence in her stunning 2013 Golden Globes look. The actress rocked a bold red, strapless Christian Dior haute couture dress, Brian Atwood heels, Chopard jewels, and a Ferragamo clutch.
