Fashion Trends — 13 January 2014

The Golden Globes are Hollywood’s biggest party.  While the Oscars are all about Hollywood glamour, the Globes allow the glitterati to try more fashion-forward looks.

Here are some of the most interesting fashion trends from The Golden Globes 2014:

Brights Colors

Color was everywhere. From the richest of maroons, to the brightest of tomatoes, red dominated the carpet.  No one did it better than  “12 Years as Slave” star  Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren.  While many of the dresses were retro, Lupita’s dress looked towards the future of fashion.  Even her minimal use of accessories was impeccable.  Another winner in the bright category was Reese Witherspoon. Her simple Calvin Klein dress will, no doubt, launch a thousand prom looks.  Other big colors were canary and emerald.

While  “The Great Gatsby” didn’t shatter any records, its influence can be felt at these awards.  Zooey Deshanel, Anna Gunn, and  “Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery” wore embellished neutrals that evoked jazz-era glamour. These looks need to be worn with great caution, however, because they can be very aging.

Women Over 40

Everyone take notes.  No one did it better than Robin Wright ,Julianna Marguiles, and Cate Blanchet. Their dresses, while being age appropriate, were the epitome of style.

Inspired by “American Hustle”, dresses had a disco flair. Plunging necklines reminiscent of Halston and Studio 54, found their way on to the red carpet and will soon find their way into the closet of fashionistas everywhere.

Statement Jewelry

Sure, every actress was sporting millions in borrowed diamonds, but Jennifer Lawrence and Sophia Vergara showed us the power of the statement piece. The right accessories can transform a simple dress into a showstopper.  To be fair, Sophia Vergara can probably stop any show in jeans and a t-shirt.

Of course, everything wasn’t a fashion dream come true. In fact, the hair was less than impressive.  The wet look, which dominated the runways, proved to be a less than flattering when translated in real life.  Other looks ranged from messy to “not even trying today.”

Make-up was another perplexing situation.  While there were a lot of celebrities wearing a strong red lip, far too many celebrities went for a natural-bronzey look.  The result seemed unfinished and aging in HD.

 

So, who do you think was the best dressed? Which trend will spill over into prom-season? What was with all of the velvet on the men?
