If you love fashion and award shows, then you watched last night’s Golden Globes. Unfortunately, Globes has turned into my least favorite of the award shows. Each year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association likes to nominate and honor the stars of new popular shows. Comedic shows that I adore like New Girl, Mindy Project, and Veep are forgotten, while a new show like Transparent wins best comedy. I have seen this show, and as much as I enjoyed it, it is not a comedy. No matter how backwards the awards can be, it is always fun to watch Hollywood’s television and film stars drink and mingle. The most important part of the evening for me happens before any envelopes are opened. I am, of course, referring to the red carpet arrivals. The Golden Globes officially kick off award season, and even though we will be missing our fashion favorites like Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway, I am excited for the new batch of stylish celebs. An added bonus is that Lupita Nyong’o will be attending this year’s shows as a presenter, and we all can’t wait to see what she wears next! I know a lot of people thought that last night’s gowns were a bore, but I enjoyed the good and ignored the bad. Here is my list for best dressed. I would love to hear from you who you thought had the best looks of the night!
10. Kate Hudson in Versace
I am not a fan of Versace, but Kate showed the right amount of skin and her body was to-die-for. This dress wouldn’t have been acceptable for the Oscars, but celebrities are allowed to be sexier for the Golden Globes and no one does it better than Kate Hudson.
9. Reese Witherspoon in Calvin Klein
This slinky Calvin Klein look was one of my favorite metallic gowns of the evening. It is a style that we are all very used to seeing Reese wear, but she does it so well!
8. Lorde in Narcisco Rodriguez
Lorde arrived in a Narcisco Rodriguez suit and it’s the best thing I’ve seen her wear yet. Who would wear a cropped top pantsuit to an awards show? Lorde!
7. Emily Blunt in Michael Kors
At first I thought that this was too safe and simple for the Golden Globes, and I’ve always been a fan of Blunt’s daring choices in the past. But as I went back to it again and again, I started to love it for its simplicity and elegance.
6. Sienna Miller in Miu Miu
I missed Sienna on the red carpet but when she presented during the show, I was obsessed with this gorgeous look. Everything about this Miu Miu dress was perfection.
5. Jessica Chastain in Atelier Versace
Even though I can’t get onboard with this color, no one does Hollywood glamour like Jessica Chastain. It’s her style and she owns it on the red carpet. She also knew that tonight was the night she could show skin, and she definitely did.
4. Naomi Watts in Gucci with Bulgari necklace
I don’t usually like Gucci, but I was a fan of this look. I don’t know if it’s because marigold is her color, or if it’s the Bulgari necklace, but Naomi Watts has always been a favorite of mine, and she did not disappoint.
3. Julianne Moore in Givenchy
I am very happy that Julianne chose a designer other than Tom Ford for the evening. This was a refreshing change for her, and I loved this metallic gown from head to feathery toe. I predict that last night will not be her only win this award season, so I am excited to see what she wears next!
2. Lupita Nyong’o in Giambattista Valli
Making her return to the very award show where we all fell in love with her, Lupita proves, yet again that she can do no wrong. I loved this lilac printed gown with a detailed bodice.
1. Emma Stone in Lanvin
When I first saw her I thought it was a dress, and then it was revealed to me as a pantsuit. This effortlessly casual pantsuit with metallic detailed top and bow was my favorite of the night. I have always loved her personal style and I love how she never changes even when attending a big award show. Side note, can I be her best friend?
Amal Clooney in Dior Haute Couture
There was a lot of excitement for Mrs. Clooney’s red carpet debut. She was, of course, stunning. However, people were either merely polite or in love with this look. Personally, I loved it. I get the impression that she doesn’t care about the award shows and she’s just going to wear what she loves. When asked about her choosing to wear elbow-length gloves, Amal said simply: “The gloves are just my own”. I do have to add that my girlfriend Haley thought they looked like her dishwashing gloves, and I don’t disagree with this statement. Along with the ‘Je Suis Charlie’ pin on her clutch, she proved to us that she is simply fabulous.
