I usually love to watch the Golden Globes live – from the red carpet arrivals to the show itself – I find it more entertaining than almost any other award show. But this weekend, I simply forgot all about it! So this Best Dressed list was based on photos and photos alone. To tell you the truth, it was a bit challenging selecting 10 favourite looks, as a lot of celebrities and their stylists opted for either been-there-seen-that, or snoozeville looks. With that said, here are my faves.
Olivia Wilde is not my usual style favourite. Her style is uneven at best, but this time, in this oxblood Michael Kors Collection gown, she looks ravishing (if we overlook her demon-like eye makeup). The dress fits her like a glove, the colour suits her skin tone, and while I think that necklace is completely unnecessary, she still looks mighty good. Bonus points for keeping it real and rocking a pair of great custom-made ALDO heels (#WearCanada FTW!).
It’s no secret that Cate Blanchett is a superior human being, and as such, she would probably make this list no matter what she decides to put on, but it helps when she shows up in a visually-arresting Givenchy gown. I wish some of those strings/dress hairs weren’t so stringy, but beggars can’t be choosers. Other than a stray string or two, Cate The Great looks impeccable, no surprise here.
I’m not sure why Kate Bosworth was at the Globes tonight, but the fact is, the woman’s got style. This sequinned Dolce & Gabbana gown looks great on her, the print is interesting, and I love that she chose minimal accessories, letting the dress shine.
Alicia Vikander is quickly becoming my new favourite. Even the fact that she’s dating my boyfriend Michael Fassbender can’t stop me from liking her. She’s marvellous in The Danish Girl, and has been killing it at every event she attends. I am not madly in love with this Louis Vuitton gown, but she makes it work. I love the stripes, the criss-cross back, and the ruffles around the neckline; it’s both chic and simple, and in my opinion, it’s certainly one of the best looks of the night.
More after the jump!
Don’t hate me for liking this look, but I think Kate Hudson is totally pulling this Michael Kors Collection two-piece off. I am usually not a huge fan of tube-tops on the red carpet, but somehow the combination of the matching choker, tousled locks, and that rocking bod is making me sit up and pay attention.
Loving the retro glamour Lady Gaga is serving in this black velvet Versace Atelier number. She’s been surprisingly watchable in the latest American Horror Story instalment…and I have a very low threshold for musicians/actors. Yasss to this neckline, yasss to the exaggerated hips, yassss to pockets, YASSS GAGA!
Did you watch Jenna Dewan on Lip Sync Battle? SHE WAS AMAZING!!! Perhaps I’m still lovestruck with her incredible performance, but I am really liking this look on her. It’s a bit prommy, but I think she looks beautiful nonetheless.
Another black velvet dress, but this time it’s Kirsten Dunst in Valentino. It’s not my favourite ever, but she looks good in it, the neckline is interesting, it’s not putting me to sleep, and I like Kirsten Dunst.
Jennifer Lawrence looks good, but once again, it’s not her best ever. The only reason I am including this look is because of the hair, makeup, and necklace. That necklace elevates her dress, and her face looks impeccable. Good enough?
I am kind of obsessed with Taylor Schilling’s Thakoon look. I can’t tell if it’s a jumpsuit, or an actual suit, but I definitely need one in my life. In other news is black the new black?
On anyone else, this gown would look bananas, but on the incomparable Jane Fonda, it just works. I am into her awesome pearl earrings and those dramatic ruffles, but she probably could’ve done without the matching white shoes.
