Red carpet recap: Everyday style secrets to steal from the Golden Globes
By Brittany Anas
Roll out the red carpet: It’s officially awards show season. The 2014 Golden Globes — hosted by funny-women duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — marks the start of the award season. And what better way to spend Sunday nights in the winter than snuggled up on our couches and in our favorite flannel pajama pants keeping a list of Hollywood’s best — and worst — dressed?
We’ll leave it to Joan Rivers and her Fashion Police team to snark over the worst dressed. The Daily Mail already jabbed American Hustle star Jennifer Lawrence for her black and white gown likening it to a Folgers coffee filter. (How dare they poke fun at JLaw, who, afterall, was pretty much 2013’s ‘It’ girl?).
We’re focusing on the positives and some trends we were loving on the red carpet:
- Newspaper colors. There’s a joke in the news business that goes something like this: “What’s black and white and re(a)d all over?” But it seemed that the news and the red carpet had something in common this year. Stark black and white dresses were donned by starlettes like Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Girls actress Zosia Mamet. But also gracing the red carpet (and perhaps camouflaging with it) were bright pops of red. Lupita Nyong’o, star of 12 Years a Slave, made lots of best-dressed lists in her vibrant red caped gown with cap sleeves that was designed by Ralph Lauren. Love the looks? For a chic black-and-white rendition that you can wear in more day-to-day life, check out this Ivy & Blue Jacquard dress from Nordstrom for $158. The dress has all-over white dots giving it a suble texture and a sophisticated pencil skirt. Save money on your Nordstrom purchases with 6 percent Cash Back from ShopAtHome.com.
- Colorblocking won’t quit. The 1980’s trend has been going strong in street style for a few years and was a trend that dominated the golden globes. It’s great for fashionistas who have a hard time picking just one color to wear. Taylor Swift color-blocked with a reddish-pink and black Carolina Herrera gown and Sandra Bullock wore a trio of pink, black and baby blue on her Prabal Gurung gown. If you’re a fan of the colorblocking trend, check out the St. John Collection Colorblock Milano Knit Sheath Dress
- Metallic silvers. We swooned over the sparkling Gucci gown that Mila Kunis wore and that was dripping with sequins — complete with sultry, smoky eye makeup. Kate Mara — from the Netflix original House of Cards series — also was sparkling in a silver dress with a plunging neckline. (Love the silver metallic look? Check out this Tiered Beaded Mesh Dress (pictured) from Nordstrom that is on major sale at $119.97).
