Better late than never!
Award show season is basically my Superbowl (except it’s longer AND WAY BETTER), and I couldn’t be happier that it kicked off with the Golden Globes last Sunday. I’ve been off the grid for a week as I was traveling for work, but I still wanted to recap the my favorite dresses of the Golden Globes 2014.
1. Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren – Nupita topped every list, and for good reason. This beautiful coral/red/orange caped dress from Ralph Lauren is so elegant and chic, not to mention looks incredible with her complexion. She was a scene stealer both on screen and off.
2. Sandra Bullock in Prabal Gurung – For some reason it seemed like this dress was panned by critics but I couldn’t disagree more. Other than a maybe-too-low neckline, I love the pink and blue color blocking on black, the style, and that it’s Prabal Gurung. She looked amazing, and thankfully distracted me from the blinding rage I felt at Jennifer Lawrence undeservingly winning the Best Supporting Actress award.
3. Julia Roberts in Dolce & Gabbana – It’s great to know that Julia Roberts has never stopped being as classy as she’s always been. This D&G piece is so perfect, age-appropriate and chic, I loved it from the moment she stepped on the carpet. The belt, the collar, the bottom and her hair… all just gorgeous. It reminded me of something that might have been a Carolina Herrera piece as well.
4. Margot Robbie in Gucci – Margot is a newcomer to the red carpet and the Hollywood award show season, just making her debut this year in Wolf of Wall Street. I think she will be hard to forget in the stunning Gucci dress this jewel trim and a high slit. Not only is the dress absolutely beautiful but it shows off her figure just right. Simple, elegant and again, SO chic.
5. Tina Fey’s first dress as host in Carolina Herrera, and Amy Poehler’s Red Carpet gown in Stella McCartney – As a fan of these two for probably the last 12 years, they can do no wrong in my eyes. This year they were both flawless and glamorous as hosts and in all of their dresses, but these two were my absolute favorites.
I think what I LOVED about each of these picks was no one was trying too hard to shock or grab attention. No potential nip slips (maybe Sandra?), no outrageous cleavage, nothing overly trendy or trying too hard, no embarrassingly short hemlines. Just pure elegance on six gorgeous ladies.
Anyone reading have favorites I didn’t mention? I am waiting eagerly for this weekends Screen Actors Guild awards, and after that it’s over a month til the Oscars!
