There were highs, there were lows, there were sighs of confusion—what is she wearing and why?? The 68thannual Golden Globes put out this year, as usual, an exciting array of designer gowned celebrities for all us normal fashion frenzied folks to feast our eyes upon. Now that we’re a few days out we’ve had time to digest the looks and declare the victories in our review below of the finest and fairest. And, as the of-course-you-want-to-know bonus, we’ve included ideas for how to take the trends of the red carpet and make them yours. Dig in and feel free to sound off—we’ve been won over by these top leading ladies—which are your winners?
Green and Gathered. We’re teeming with green envy—the ethereal emeralds and jolting jades of the red carpet gowns this year have us in a lock down pattern—Need. One. Now. Whether laced with ruffles, or cinched with rich draping at the waist, pair with strappy nude or gold heels and understated jewelry and channel the elegance of Catherine Zeta-Jones and the sultry Mila Kuniz—two hands down favorites of the evening. We loved the vibrant green of this dress from Nordstrom at The Oaks ($178).
Anything but Neutral. Kick your look into overdrive with barely there color. A hint of pink, a soft winter white, or a blush of just the right nude—and suddenly it’s all about you. Diana Aragon’s stunning cream gown lingered long after she stepped inside, and Carrie Underwood’s pale sparkler called all the right attention to her glowing skin—we want some of what they’ve got. This Sue Wong dress is the subtle and stunning; we found it at Bloomingdale’s in Santa Monica Place ($411.60).
Long-Sleeved Love. We’re seeing stars after watching Angelina Jolie and Anne Hathaway dare to not bare their arms. We love the fun fresh twist on traditional red-carpet looks and the kickback to more conservative times. Don’t forget to bring on the bling—adorning many of our favorites this year was an abundance of glittering beading and shiny sequins. This mini dress makes us mega happy with its perfect pairing of these two hot trends. We snatched it up at Nordstrom at Westside Pavilion ($295).
