How are my fashionistas doing tonight? I hope all is going well and cheers to a fantastic week for all of us.
So last night was the beginning of awards season in Hollywood with the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. This of course means that it’s one of the best times of the year for those of us who just die for fashion and glamour. I for one was glued to the red carpet show to see who my favorites would be this year, and I was not disappointed. I was ecstatic to see so much pops of color, many different styles and so many hits this time around. I had to go through the pictures several times to make a decision, and I will say right now that I have TWO best dressed this year because I just couldn’t pick between the two.
There were also a few misses but not too many which made me so happy. The ladies of Hollywood seem to be getting it together on what to wear. I was torn between a couple where I could not decide on whether they were a hit or a miss so I included them under the miss category only because I was really leaning towards that which is not to say that the dresses were a complete miss.
Well then… What are we waiting for? Let’s get started:
BEST DRESSED CATEGORY:
#6 – Kerry Washington in Balenciaga. Kerry Washington has become such a staple on the red carpet. It is rare that she misses and she hit it right once again. This dress is stunning on her and shows off her pregnancy in such a lovely way. She is glowing, her jewelry is just fabulous and her makeup flawless. The dress is simple but so elegant. I loved it the instant I saw her.
#5 – Olivia Wilde in Gucci. I thought she looked beautiful. This dressed accented her pregnancy yet it was sexy, glamorous and simply gorgeous. The green shimmer accented her eyes, the hair was sexy and her makeup gave her that natural, glowing look. THIS is how you do maternity on the red carpet. I absolutely loved her.
#4 Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Roberto Cavalli. I found Jenna while browsing the web because I might have missed her on the red carpet. When I saw this, I was like wow! This lace illusion dress in black and white was stunning and it showed off her curves beautifully. Her hair parted on the side and slicked back was perfect to show the dress off. I adore Roberto Cavalli and this sexy, glamorous dress shows why.
#3 Sofia Vergara in Zac Posen. Well of course you all know that I’d include Ms. Vergara. She is and will always be one of favorites and not because she’s a Latina. Well yes there’s that :), but Sofia is gorgeous, sexy, funny, and she always looks like she’s having a blast. I must say that I am so happy that she chose a different style other than her usual. This Zac Posen gown is beautiful on her and it still accentuated her waist and bust. Her hair long and sexy and makeup is flawless. The necklace could have been a bit toned down but it did add a kind of pop to the ensemble that caught your eye. Well done Sofia!
#2 – Margot Robbie in Gucci. I have yet to see the Wolf of Wall Street but Margot brought the sexy to the red carpet. This dress at first glance looks simple but there is no denying that the stones, the slit, the neckline and the shoes to match the stones made us all gasp. Wow! I want this dress. It is so gorgeous! The way she styled her hair along with her makeup and the earrings were all complementing but not taking away from this stunning outfit.
TIE FOR NUMBER ONE BEST DRESSED:
#1 – Cate Blanchet in Armani Prive. Oh My God! This dress is exquisite. I cannot find enough beautiful words to describe it. It’s sheer, it’s Chantilly lace, it sparkles, and it’s divine! Cate is another who rarely does wrong on the red carpet and she hit it out of the ball park last night. Her hair, her makeup and the jewelry all completed the ensemble but did not take anything away from this absolutely gorgeous dress. I bow to you Ms. Blanchet!
#1 – Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren. PERFECTION! That is all…
I mean how else can you describe this look? She’s beautiful, her makeup is stunning and this dress is perfection! Not many women can pull off a cape and Lupita has moved up to the “badass” category because she pulled it off without a hitch. She looks like a gorgeous superhero that can save the day and yet look glamorous, radiant, exquisite, divine and just PERFECT doing so! WOW!
#3 – Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior. I couldn’t decide on whether I liked this dress or not. It’s not completely bad but not attention grabbing and the black ribbons throw me off. I do love her hair. Jennifer is definitely rocking the pixie cut.
#2 – Julia Roberts in Dolce and Gabbana. I adore Julia but I couldn’t decide on this one either whether I liked it or not. I feel like without the top, the dress would’ve been simple but pretty. However, with the shirt top, it took something away plus it looked like it wasn’t tucked in properly. Maybe if it had been smoother and not bunching up under her arms and in the back, it might have worked better.
WORSE DRESSED CATEGORY:
#4 – Sandra Bullock in Prabal Gurung. It hurts me so bad to have to add one of my favorite actresses to the worse dressed, but oh Sandra… I just did not feel this one. I feel like the colors did not go well together and the overall style of the dress did not do much for her. I did love her makeup and hair though.
#3 – Zoe Saldana in Prabal Gurung. I know some people liked this dress, but I just didn’t. I feel like there is way too much going on here including the back. The shoes did not fit her properly and should have been a different style. The straps on her arms seem unnecessary and I did not like the way she styled her hair. It took away from the entire outfit.
#2 – Lena Dunham in Zac Posen. While this is one of her best looks, I still feel there is something missing. I love the dress it’s just the fit around the bust and hips doesn’t seem quite right on her. I feel like it’s the way she carries herself though. She needs to stand up straight, pull her shoulders back and work it. She’s getting there, I feel like for the next awards, she’s going to be a hit. I love the color yellow so I have to give props for that :).
NUMBER ONE WORSE DRESSED:
#1 – Paula Patton in Stephanie Rolland. Wait… What?!?! … I don’t get this choice for her. Paula is so gorgeous and has a stunning figure so WHY?? All those ruffles are a total distraction, completely pointless and just too much! Two thumbs all the way down!
There you have it my loves. My picks for best and worse dressed of this year’s 2014 Golden Globes Awards. I was so happy to see more hits than misses, a lot of color and just overall sexiness on the red carpet. I hope the hits continue throughout award season because I really do hate picking the worse dressed, but hey someone has to ;).
So what do you all think? Are you with me or not? I would love to know if there are others that you would have added to this list or omitted. Let’s discuss. I mean we haven’t chatted in a few months since I’ve been totally slacking on posting new stuff. No worries my dears, this will change starting now and what better way to start off this year’s discussions than with this topic? This being said, you all know the drill… feel free to comment respectfully below on whether you agree or disagree with my choices and why. Go! #engage
Until next time…
