First things first – Happy New Year my lovely followers! I have been under the radar for a couple weeks now with summer holidays and having way too much fun in the beautiful weather to be inside on a computer. But I’m back now and better than ever! 2015 is our year – whatever struggles and stresses you dealt with last year are not only in the past; but have built the strength within you necessary to seize all the incredible opportunities this year has to offer. I have a great feeling about 2015, and I hope you do too.
But back to business.
Sunday saw the 72nd annual Golden Globes (the kickstarter for awards season) held in Los Angeles and usually the catalyst for phenomenal red carpet fashion. HOWEVER, there was obviously something very funky in the LA water last weekend because there were so few good looks that I actually wanted to cry. Literally. I don’t know what the hell everyone was thinking (or drinking when they chose their outfits) but almost no one got it right. There were a few exceptions – there always are thank the Pope – but mostly I was underwhelmed and quite frankly, disappointed. You have all this money, with stylists fawning over your every whim and designers throwing their exquisite couture gowns at you and you chose that? Sies tog nee fok man.
There were undeniable, key trends on the carpet (from solid primary colours and all white to sequined sparkles, belts and capes); a lot of the dresses within them were horrific. HORRIFIC. WHY??????
Anyway, that post/rant is up next but for now we will focus on the positive because there were some stars who actually looked quite magnificent. I found most of the looks on the red carpet to be quite plain and safe; so I do appreciate a fashion risk when taken and have to applaud those adventurous souls who tried something different (some however tried something so intently different they looked pathetic and revolting and will be severely punished in the next post).
Here you go – the best of the worst from the Golden Globes 2015.
Let’s start with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I LOVE THESE WOMEN. They are brilliant, funny, successful women who also know how to play with fashion and have some fun. I wasn’t hugely crazy about Tina’s red carpet dress but I didn’t hate it on her. I love that they had three outfits but stuck to a colour scheme throughout – Tina in monochrome and Amy in cobalt blue. Well done ladies, well done indeed.
For the rest of the looks (to make it easierfor you), I’ve grouped the goodies into subsections:
These were dresses that just missed the top mark but something about them worked for me. Sometimes I’m not even sure what. They’re not my favourite but belieeeeeeve me, they certainly are not my worst.
These elder women showed that youth is not the only way to define style.
Quite honesly, the men did a whole lot better at the Golden Globes than most of the women. I love that we are in a place where men can have fun with fashion, wear more than just a black tux and take risks.
Sometimes, your best accessory is the person on your arm.
And this for luck:
Ok so there were quite a few hits at The Globes, but sadly the misses far outweigh them. Stay tuned for that clusterfuck of fashion coming to the blog this week.
Until next time xxx
