And The Golden Globe Goes To...
The Golden Globes: the start of the fashionistas sports season. All year long guys have their opportunity to cheer, drink beer, eat pizza, critique the plays of their favourite sports team and participate in the fantasy draft picks – I have witnessed this first hand. I never understood this sports phenomenon until I realized that the awards season was my version of sports season….only with champagne, sparkly dresses and diamonds. The perfect way to start off this glorious season – The Golden Globes!
The Golden Globes is one of my favourite award shows. It is the perfect combination of clever, fearless hosts (amen Tina Fay and Amy Poehler), champagne at every table (cue memorable celebrity missteps), gossip (Jeremy Renner commenting on Jennifer Lopez and her “globes”) and beautiful dresses that dictate upcoming spring fashion trends (hooray for sparkly spring embellishments!). But obviously my eyes were completely glued to the television during the red carpet…an asteroid could have hit my house and I would not have noticed. So I diligently took notes and came up with my best dressed list and ways to…let’s say improve.
Best Dressed: We all know that I love sparkle (ok well border line obsessed). So I was gleeful when I saw sparkle and embellishments flow down the red carpet like a sea of diamonds!!! But the seven sirens that stole my heart were: Juilanne Moore, Reese Witherspoon, Allison Williams, Jessica Chastain, Emma Stone, Chrissy Teigen and Kate Hudson. All of these ladies were head to toe perfection and had a perfect balance of cool elegance…in particular Emma Stone who broke the rules and rocked pants. It was definitely a gasp and applaud moment. Bravo ladies!! Lessons from award show #1: yes to embellishment and no to over-accessorizing (ladies you know who you are). Less is always more. Let’s keep hair, makeup and spray tans to a minimum and confidence to a maximum.
