Golden Globes 2013 Recap

One of my favorite pastimes is watching the red carpet. I am a fanatic for haute couture gowns. But, alas, I no longer have cable, and hence, I don’t get to watch E!’s pre-awards show coverage like the good ole days of yore. However, my recap of last year’s Golden Globes was one of the most fun to write, so I decided I wouldn’t deny myself the pleasure of (nit)picking last night’s fashion. But I must add the disclaimer that without having seen the fashion in action, waltzing down the carpet, my analysis is based solely on still photos.

BEST RISKIEST CHOICE: Lucy Liu

This dress is one that a lot of people won’t like, but I totally love it. Yes, it’s reminiscent of wallpaper you’d find hung in the family dining room of a 19th century house, but somehow Lucy Liu is pulling off this dress. The shape is classic ball gown as done by Carolina Herrera, but the bold, floral print is unexpected and gorgeous. Lucy’s long, fishtail braid brings a modern touch to the look. And with so much going on in the dress, it was smart to select simple, diamond drop earrings as her only jewelry.

Golden Globes 2012 Fashion Recap

In addition to my love of beauty and fashion, I have a lifelong adoration of film. Nearly every weekend, you can find me at the best movie house on the planet, Alamo Drafthouse.  So when awards season rolls around, its like Christmas morning for me. I live for red carpet fashion. Here are some of my own personal awards from last night’s Golden Globes:

BEST LOOK OF ETHEREAL PRETTINESS: Charlize Theron
Charlize Theron is my top woman crush, and I love her sense of style. At the 2000 Academy Awards, she had one of the best red carpet moments of all time wearing tangerine Vera Wang with 1920s-inspired pin-curled hair. While she hasn’t quite matched that, she rarely misses (except for that cinnamon roll Dior disaster at the 2010 Oscars). Last night she mastered a heavenly look in this blush pink Dior Couture gown with soft side-swept hair adorned with a jeweled headband. She looked like she was floating on the red carpet.
