Golden Globe Red Carpet Favorites

Did you get a chance to watch the Golden Globes red carpet?  If not, have no fear ~ I have the highlights right here for you.  Overall, there were a ton of beautiful dresses and not too many missteps.  Here are my favorites:

Black and White

Obviously black and white is still big.  Cate Blanchett’s dress also had a fantastic dramatic open back.  Did anyone see Blue Jasmine?  I found it to be really depressing, but she was really great in the movie.  I wasn’t too sure about Allison Williams’ dress at first, but it kind of grew on me.  It is really different I think, in a good way.

I loved Amy Adams’ dress because it was very reminiscent of her 70s/Studio 54 style in American Hustle.  Lupita Nyong’o was so gorgeous and dramatic in this red hot number.

Naomi Watts is stunning and has rarely done wrong.  Robin Wright looked amazing in Reem Acra.  She has the perfect sexy work dress wardrobe on her show, House of Cards.

Is it just me or has The Good Wife gotten way better this season?  This picture probably does not do this dress justice, as Julianna Margulies looked amazing when I watched the red carpet live.  Zoe Saldana totally rocks this unique Prabal Gurung dress ~ its like a work of art!  She has a special place in my heart because I will always love the movie Center Stage.

My ultimate favorite was Margot Robbie ~ I loved the winter white with the neck detail.  She was really stunning in Wolf of Wall Street.  Do you recognize Laura Carmichael from Downton Abbey?  They always make her look so dowdy on the show and she looks amazing here!!

I am focusing on the positive today, but I have to point out two not-so-favorites:

Golden Globe Not Favorites

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior. . . . it is not that the dress is so bad as much as it is just so similar to the dress that she wore to the Oscars last year.  Why not branch out from the strapless, ball-gown look?  Julia Roberts in Dolce and Gabbana . . . we all know she is sort of over the whole Hollywood thing.  But I think she ages herself with this.  She has plenty of years to wear this kind of thing.

My overall take on the show?  Tina Fey and Amy Poehler had some funny moments, but it kind of fell flat of my expectations.  They did do a good job of moving things along relatively quickly and interspersing the bigger awards with the randoms.  There were some weird moments, like the incomprehensible speech given by Jacqueline Bissett.

This year, my interest admittedly went a little beyond the fashion because I watch a lot of the shows that were nominated.  I was really happy that Breaking Bad won for Best TV Series, Drama because I think that is the best show ever.  If you haven’t Netflixed it yet, you must check it out.  I also felt very happy for Andy Samberg and his cute new wife ~ he won Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical for his new show Brooklyn 99.  The show also won Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical.   I have never watched Brooklyn 99, but will definitely see what it is all about.  I also now want to see 12 Years A Slave and Dallas Buyers Club for sure.

Did you have any favorite red carpet dresses or moments from the show?  Share them with me!

  1. Yeah I know what you mean about Amy Poehler and Tina Fey…but the moment when Amy was introduced as Tina Fey’s son from a previous marriage…absolutely hilarious. I didn’t stop laughing for at least two minutes.

  2. Leah, great post! Love the fashion highlights, all in one page! I definitely preferred Lupita Nyong’o’s dress. The cape is so on trend and perfectly tailored. Zoe Saldana is a fashion icon to me, but I have to say I didn’t get her dress. Rachel, I thought that same bit with Amy as Tina Fey’s son was hysterical. How do they think of this stuff?
