I originally intended to watch the Golden Globes for the playful ribbing Ricky Gervais gives to the celebs. But last night’s show had some beautiful pieces on the red carpet that I just could not ignore. Color is in. Green and pink seemed to be a favorite. Backless was everywhere. Bling abounded aplenty. Bright red lipstick is still popular. I’ll work up the nerve one day to do the bright red. It’s not college anymore, so it’ll take me some time.
My favorite would have to be Claire Danes’s gown. In her tiny frame, the simple, specially made, hot pink Calvin Klein piece didn’t really need any extra jewelry other than the gold cuff on her left wrist and a pair of simple diamond earrings.
Julianne Moore in beautiful Lanvin, Natalie Portman in Viktor & Rolf, Sandra Bullock in Jenny Packham, Lea Michele in Oscar de la Renta, Megan Fox in Armani Prive, donning the various colors of blush and intensity made my heart wistfully sigh.
But there were also some wonderful gowns, that did not belong to the pink category. January Jones wore a smoking hot red, fringed, Versace dress, I hope nothing fell out during the evening. Helen Mirren accented her gorgeous $1.6M necklace by Cartier, with a young and sexy Badgley Mischka gown. Helena Bohham Carter in none other than Vivienne Westwood, with a pair of mismatched colored shoes, made us all want to be the young girl who raided her mommy’s closet. Michelle Williams in her adorable floral-patterned Valentino looked retro and cute especially with the short hair. And the winner for sexiest would have to go to Anne Hathaway’s Armani Prive, though the 80’s overdone shoulder pads seemed a bit unusual, the brown sequined gown was a hit for its extreme backlessness. It was stunning.
They say the Golden Globes is the biggest party in Hollywood. And with fashions like these, it’s a sure bet the heat was on at the after-parties.
