Best & Worst Dressed at the Golden Globe Awards 2015!

Awards season officially kicked off on Sunday with the Golden Globes taking place in Los Angeles. After a very rainy weekend in the California city, the stars came out in their beautiful designer gowns to walk the red carpet. Several trends were noticed but the most memorable ones were metallics, reds, whites, and  blacks, as always. Let’s take a look at the most memorable gowns from last night and check out who was best and worst dressed.

Shiny Metallics

Hollywood’s A list dazzled in mesmerizing metallics! Julianne Moore led the way in a custom-made Givenchy strapless gown featuring ombre sequins and feathers at the hem and completed her look with Chopard jewels. The breath-taking Diane Kruger wowed in Emilia Wickstead! Although the German actress was all covered up, she still looked stunning while doing so! America’s sweetheart a.k.a Reese Witherspoon brought sexy back in a flawless strapless Calvin Klein dress and stunning diamonds, while Kate Beckinsale took the plunge in a low-cut Elie Saab. Let’s also not forget the forever young Jennifer Lopez- who proves time and time again- that she is one of THE hottest celebrities out there. The sexy latina was once again loyal to Zuhair Murad, who put her in this insanely sexy plunging, mid thigh-high slit gown!

Festive Reds

While some stars wowed in metallics, others were still enjoying the festive season and showed up in red. Two celebrities in specific stood out in the holiday color: Allison Williams blew everyone away with her strapless Armani Privé ball gown while Heidi Klum took everyone’s breath away (finally!) in a sexy, yet glamorous Versace.

Winter Whites

You can always count on the beyond beautiful Kate Hudson to bring the sexy to the red carpet. Goldie’s daughter turned heads in a sexy plunging and cut-out white Versace gown. She balanced the sexy out by putting her hair up in a demure updo. Emily Blunt also seemed to be a fan of cutouts, selecting a custom-made Michael Kors.

Nude Neutrals

Chrissy Tiegan went to Zuhair Murad who made sure that she looked sexy in sheer for the red carpet event, while Anna Kendrick channeled Cinderella in her girly Monique Lhuiller gown.

Dark Ladies

Lorde looked age appropriate in her fun custom-made Narciso Rodriguez pantsuit. The songstress’ hair may have been in distress but her jaw-dropping Neil Lane statement diamond necklace will surely divert your attention. Jennifer Aniston stayed in her comfort zone by slipping into a black halter Saint Laurent gown. While she looked beautiful, I would have loved to see her in something more daring; moreover, the halter strap is a little too 90s for 2015. I don’t blame you in case you mistakenly identified Jessica Chastain as Sofia Vergara; the red head took a page out of Vergara’s book and slipped into a va-va-voom plunging bronze Versace that hugged her curves perfectly.

A Colorful Winter

Any best dressed list is incomplete without the stunning Naomi Watts who wowed in yellow in the middle of January! The Aussie beauty chose Gucci for the globes and perfectly accessorized her look with a BVLGARI serpenti necklace. Possibly one of my favorites of the night, Jenna Dewan Tatum, was a vision in a ruffled strapless Carolina Herrera!

On the opposite end of the list, here’s Amy Adams in a one shoulder Versace. I love Amy Adams and most of the time, her choices are spot on. However, I really feel like this powder blue gown washes her out; I just wish she had went for a darker version or added a dark lip for some drama.

Tina Fey looks like she’s going to her school prom instead of a red carpet show. The funny lady disappoints in a strapless Antonio Berrardi cocktail gown, as it appears as if she sowed on that extra layer of white fabric minutes before the show..

 

Tina Fey

 

Claire Danes‘ fashion choices usually land her on the best dressed list. However, her Valentino disaster looks too medieval for the 21st century. The design is too busy and the actress’ body seems to have disappeared somewhere in between all these prints.

 

Claire Danes

 

Lena Dunham shows you how NOT to wear red on the carpet. The Girls actress dons an asymmetrical Zac Posen dress with several busy cuts, and that’s not even the worst of it: her hideous shoes need to be burnt asap!

Lupita Nyong’o may have been last year’s red carpet darling, but the Kenyan actress is starting off 2015 on a bad note. Although the bust of her Giambattista Valli gown is exploding with perfectly arranged flowers, the midriff section looks like a New Year’s Eve cotillion cotillion gone wrong.

 

Lupita Nyong'o

 

Kate Mara is also another actress who usually gets it right. However, last night was another story. Her red Miu Miu gown looks great from afar, but take a closer look and the ruched detailing on both sides of her pelvic area is quite distracting. Also not helping is that tan belt which needs to be burnt along with Lena Dunham’s shoes.

 

Kate Mara

 

Another year, another failed look. Maggie Gyllenhal is on a winning worst dressed list streak by wearing this Miu Miu bed sheet. The bust details are beyond awkward and the gown needs to be ironed.

Lana Del Rey may be young and beautiful, but sure isn’t best dressed. The singer chose this turquoise dress? that’s all sorts of wrong. I don’t even know who the designer is, but this crime is too much to look at.

 

Lana Del Rey

 

I loved Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl. It’s also hard to believe that the British beauty just had a baby just a month ago.. Her Vera Wang dress really would have been perfect, if only it had the right fit. Considering its current state, this gown looks like a wardrobe malfunction ready to happen any minute!

 

Rosamund Pike

 

It’s hard to believe that Keira Knightly’s Chanel dress reportedly took almost 30 hours to make. I mean how hard it is to cut up a piece of fabric that has hundreds of species of butterflies and sow it into a dress? Yes she’s pregnant and yes it is wrong to make fun of pregnant women, but seriously now, there’s an almost actual living butterfly on her wrist too! There’s is no excuse for this crime against butterflies whatsoever!

5 Best Dressed Stars from 2014

The new year marks the arrival of the all-important awards season. In just a few days’ time, Hollywood’s A list will be flooding LA’s red carpets, decked out in designer wear, sparkling jewels, and sky- high heels.

In honor of this impending season, let’s take a look back at some of last year’s best dressed stars!

Lupita Nyong’o was just another name early last year. But, in a few week’s time the Kenyan beauty walked away with an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years A Slave and hit every best dressed list along the way. Who can forget her coral “cape” moment courtesy of Ralph Lauren at the Golden Globes or her “Nairobi” blue Prada gown at the Oscars?

When you think of Sofia Vergara, the first words that come to mind are: bombshell, latina, hot, sexy, among others. At 42, this drop-dead gorgeous Columbian keeps getting hotter as the days go by. Although Vergara is often criticized for wearng the same silhouette every red carpet, she still managed to wow audience in 2014 with a show stopping white Roberto Cavalli at the Emmys. The actress switched things up at the Golden Globe Awards by putting on a flawless black Zac Posen gown and accessorized it with a breath-taking Laurraine Schwartz statement necklace.

She was pregnant for most of 2014, but Olivia Wilde looked hotter than ever as her pregnancy advanced. Her prime moment was when she walked the red carpet wearing an amazing emerald Gucci sequined dress that accentuated her baby bump flawlessly. She completed her look with Forevermark diamonds and the best ombre hair you’ve ever seen!

Kate Hudson is no stranger to best dressed lists! Although the actress was spotted wearing a similar color palette throughout the year, she was a winner every time! Her most memorable moments include a plunging sparkling caped Atelier Versace gown at the Academy Awards and a Gucci Premiere one-shouldered dress at the LACMA Art & Film Gala.

After a quiet 2013, Blake Lively made a fashion come-back in 2014! The former Gossip Girl turned heads during every red carpet event in every corner of the world. The actress was on a winning streak during the 2014 Cannes Film Festival where she dazzled in 3 FLAWLESS Gucci gowns and tons of diamonds!

Red Carpet | Best Dressed at the 2014 SAG Awards

The second stop for awards season happened to be the Screen Actors’ Guild awards. The lavish yet relaxed awards show took place on Saturday in Los Angeles and just like every red carpet, there was mix of gorgeous and hideous, but more on the hideous later ;)

Here are my favorite gowns from the evening!

Jennifer Lawrence

Ok so this look is not my favorite for J Law, but it is a huge improvement from last week’s Dior disaster. Also, because of all the sequins, this dress does not photograph well, but you would like it if you saw it live on TV. In any case, this Dior black strapless gown wins Jennifer some much needed points in the awards season fashion department. She finishes off the look with Jennifer Mayer dangling earrings. Now if only her hair would grow back!

Anna Gunn

I love everything about this look! The midnight blue Monique Lhuillier gown goes perfectly with Anna’s blond hair and the shimmer is just right. The Breaking Bad actress also pays homage to the show with a custom made “Breaking Bad” clutch that made fans of the series go wild!

 

Anna Gunn

 

 

Lupita Nyong’o

The Kenyan beauty nails it again and looks gorgeous on the red carpet. Following her “fashion moment” at the Globes last week, the 12 Years a Slave actress turns heads in this Gucci turquoise dress. The color is just perfect for her complexion and I’m just obsessed with the neckline!

 

Lupita

 

 

Emilia Clarke

Just when you think Calvin Klein lost his A game in designing red carpet gowns (I’m looking at you Reese Witherspoon), the designer dresses Emilia Clarke in a custom sequin one shoulder gown that is drop dead gorgeous! From the color to the hair to the flawless and understated makeup, I I love everything about Emilia’s look!

Sofia Vergara

No surprise here! The bombshell does it again in a strapless Donna Karan gown and a breath-taking Amrapali diamond and emerald statement necklace. Enough said.

Amy Adams

Undoubtedly my favorite from this year’s SAGs, Amy Adams is stunning in this Antonio Berardi dress featuring one shoulder cutout detailing. I love the bejeweled waistline and the rest of her Cartier arm candy. Simply beautiful!

Red Carpet | Best Dressed at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards

I’m so excited that awards season is finally back! The next 2 months will be fully packed with amazing (and hideous) fashion! This year I was happy to see that the fabulous looks really outweighed the bad ones; here are my favorite!

Lupita Nyong’o

I’ve really never seen this woman before, but when she stepped on the red carpet, she literally took everyone’s breath away! The 12 Years a Slave actress chose this stunning bright red caped Ralph Lauren off the shoulder design. I just love the contrast of the color against her skin! I also loved how she kept the accessories at a minimum, adding only a ring and a pair of earrings from Fred Leighton.

Kate Beckinsale

You might hate this look when you first see it, but give it a second glance and you’ll love it! The British actress wore this mermaid Zuhair Murad gown with silver beading all over. I love how it hugs her curves and puts her body on display in a tasteful way. Kate completed her look with flawless Chopard earrings.

 

Kate Beckinsale

 

 

Cate Blanchett

It seems that the usually classic Cate has been keeping an eye on the latest trends for this winter. Case in point? This stunning lace creation by Armani Privée that makes her look on trend and regal at the same time!

 

Cate Blanchett

 

Margot Robbie

We’ve all seen enough of Margot Robbie in The Wolf of Wall Street so the actress really doesn’t have to cover up much anymore, right? Yes she’s showing a lot of cleavage and YES her thigh slit is almost up to there, but the Australian beauty is simply gorgeous in her custom Gucci gown on the red carpet. And get this: the dress is embroidered with actual emeralds! The Van Cleef & Arpels diamonds don’t hurt either :)

 

Margot Robbie

 

 

Sofia Vergara

In my opinion, any best dressed list is incomplete without the Colombian bombshell! Sofia wore this extravagant Zac Posen gown that featured a sweetheart neckline and a full skirt. Her Laurraine Shwartz statement necklace is total perfection!

 

Sophia Vergara

 

 

Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts can seriously do no wrong on the red carpet! Following her winning streak of designer dresses last year, the actress stuns again in this beaded gown with sheer cutouts by Tom Ford. For a complete perspective on the flawless look, zoom in on her breath-taking Bvlgari vintage serpent bracelet and gold python clutch.

 

Naomi watts

 

 

Olivia Wilde

Just WOW! I’m sure that’s what everyone thought when a pregnant Olivia Wilde walked down the red carpet! Olivia managed to get on every best dressed list by being completely covered up! The stunner wore an amazing emerald Gucci sequined dress that accentuated her baby bump flawlessly. She completed her look with Forevermark diamonds and the best ombre hair I’ve ever seen!

With the good comes the bad. So make sure you stay tuned for the Worst Dressed list coming up!
