2014 Golden Globes

Kind of been neglecting this here blog… but what better way to jump into the new year than with some couture?

Award season is always fun because it’s a chance to see some of the most beautiful pieces created by some of the best designers basically in the flesh and “in action” on the red carpet by the celebs. There are always actresses who I know are going to absolutely hit it out of the park, but then there are the few that continually surprise. In both good and not so good ways.

Let’s review shall we…

The Chic…

Kate Beckinsale | Zuhair Murad

Beckinsale cannot go wrong. Have you ever seen her go wrong? Didn’t think so.

Leslie Mann | Dolce & Gabbana

I just think the lace-ish applique neckline and peplum skirt are the sweetest thing on Mann. She’s dainty and pretty and not overpowered by her attire.

Maria Menounos | Max Azria Atelier

This was probably the only look of the night that actually made me stop and say WOW – out loud. Seriously beautiful color and shape.  The makeup and hair doesn’t take away from anything, but actually accentuates the dress and her face. Gorge.

Jennifer Lawrence | Dior

What is with all this hatin’ on Jennifer’s Dior number? I thought this look was beautiful and seamless for the (winning) actress. Not to mention the bold makeup that totally worked in her favor.

Reese Witherspoon | Calvin Klein

Something about the simplicity of this full look made me love it on Reese. I don’t know if anyone else could have pulled it off, but on her it looks effortless. Kind of like.. “Oh hey, y’all! Just put on this old thing and threw on some mascara for the Globes!”  But it works. Definitely works.

The Interesting…

Emma Watson | Dior

I feel like this picture kind of speaks for itself. She’s all “Le sigh, yes I know. I’m wearing pants. At the Golden Globes. My bad.”

Lizzy Caplan | Emilo Pucci

Color-blocking can be very favorable to the body. The whole ‘trim four inches off my waist by sculpting an opposing shade to the sides of my dress’ thing can work wonders. However, in this case it just makes her look a tiny sliver of a person with a robots giant artificially attached arms.. no?

Zooey Deschanel | Oscar de la Renta

I love Zooey and all her quirky, sweet, and sassy ways! Buuut.. I’ve got to be honest and say there is a whooole lot going on here. I don’t hate the shoes, but would’ve preferred something open toe. The hair is another topic. Stick a paper flower in your side bun and call it a day is a little Sophomore year bored in math class style of hair-do.

Mila Kunis | Gucci

Mila, why so angry? Is your ruffled neckline strangling you?! Ponytail a little too tight?! Loosen up lady!
