Best of…the 2013 Golden Globe Awards

All the biggest moments at the 2013 Golden Globes were dominated by women – by what they said, rather than what they wore. Usually I find the red carpet to be the most interesting part of  award shows but tonight, comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler changed all that. The two friends were spot on – blending their signature goofiness and comedic genius with some honest commentary. Really…the show needed more Tina & Amy. See some of their best moments HERE. What were your faves?

Another incredible moment was Jodie Foster’s acceptance speech for her lifetime achievement award. 50 years in the biz! She’s more powerful than ever while looking amzing. There’s speculation it may have been her coming out…please, it was a full forced declaration. There is so much to analyze within that speech. Major kudos to her (or her writer).

Alright, back to clothes. In a sea of underwhelming dresses at this year’s Golden Globe Awards, here’s who we thought were stand outs.

MAJOR TRENDS: mermaid silhouettes, nude shades, lace, plunging necklines, no  bras, and EVERYONE had side swept hair. Btw, trends don’t mean they were best dressed.

I love this hot coral number despite the fact Jessica Alba decided to carry Frazzle the Muppet as a clutch. It hugged the few curves she has (too skinny), flattered her skin tone perfectly, was mermaid but a departure from all the nude, white, creamy, lacey, ballet pink, etc. we saw. Her bright orange lip was an unpredictable choice. She could’ve gone sexy and done a nude but it put the focus back on her face and not her diamond covered chest.

Somehow Emily Blunt was able to make a lacey sparkly gown look fresh and fierce. Love the cutouts, her simple bun and bright red contrasty earrings.

This was a ballsy one and I think it paid off for my Asian sista Lucy Liu. Unique, fun, and it made a statement. Love that she paired it with an unfussy fishtail braid. Too bad you can’t quite tell the texture and beautiful detail all the way around her forehead. Oh, the woes of having dark coloured hair.

Hayden Panettiere,  Megan Fox, Isla Fisher, Connie Britton were just a FEW of the stars who chose nude coloured fitted gowns. YAWN!! If I’m over the nude dress trend, shouldn’t they?? Well from all that to choose from, Amy Adams was the only one to hit it out of the park. A perfect fit and flare that made Amy look tall (hard to do in these dresses), sexy, and feminine. I’m not crazy about the finger waves that start so far down the side of her head but I like that it was defined to complement the softness of the dress.

Kristen Wiig’s path to personal style has been um…interesting. See here, here, and here. Hopefully tonight is an example of a new direction in her personal style – because this is it!  The plunging neckline, sans bra, diamond cutout, all black, simple hair – it was easy, modern, elegant, while sexy as hell. Classic Michael Kors, probably why I can picture Jennifer Aniston in this dress too (with more boobs).

P.S. More important than her clothes – she was hilarious. Check out her stint with Will Farrell during the show.

Mesh, studs, beautiful cutting – you can’t go wrong with McQueen. You can practically see the movement in the dress without Nicole Kidman taking a step. I also like that she kept her hair loose in soft waves. Now if we could just work on getting that forehead to move…
