We are almost to the Golden Globes people! That’s right on January 10th (this Sunday) the first major award show of the evening will air. Award shows are a personal favorite of mine not only as a movie fan but as the shows introduced me to some of my now favorite designers and help set trends for the upcoming year. Since 73 years of dresses is a lot to go over, I figured we would look back six years (back when host Ricky Gervais first hosted) at some of the noteworthy fashion to be worn during the award show.
2010 was not an especially bold year for Globe fashion with many actresses preferring to stick to blacks, navies, and jewel tones. While newcomers to the carpet that year, the ladies of Glee showed a flair for red carpet dressing that would last them through their tv run. Despite the bolder ballgown of her co-star, the standout of the night was Diana Agron in this silver simple silhouetted Reem Acra Dress.
2011 was a war of trends with half the actress wearing nudes and the other half going for deep sunrise inspired colors (reds, oranges yellows). Natalie Portman swept the night not only by winning for Black Swan but also in her amazing and sophisticated pregnancy fashion. Her dress masterfully combined both trends and was designed by Viktor & Rolf.
While many actresses stuck to a script of red, pink, black or blue in 2012 the standout look came from Actress Charlize Theron. Wearing Dior is not a surprise for the face of the brand but her simple off white coloring and leg slit, way before Angelina, made the actress stand out in the sea of other colors.
While this year contained many fabulous dresses from Jennifer Lawerence to Lucy year, I am going to go with Taylor Swift. Why might you ask? Well to me this award show was the start of Taylors more sophisticated and edgy style on the carpet which I love. For the beginning of her transformation, the singer-songwriter chose to wear Donna Karen Atelier.
While in 2012 Gweneth Paltrow and Tom Ford launched the cape trend, the real queen of the cape is Lupita Nyongo. The Globe styles of 2014 were extremely bold, but Nyogno showed elegance in this simple but bold colored Ralph Lauren number. This choice cemented her as one to watch on the red carpet.
Our final look comes from Amal Clooney, and we are not focusing on the amazing dress by Dior. No, we picked it because the gloves, which whether you love them or hate them started a trend on both the carpet and the runway. Which is not bad for a pair of simple homemade white gloves.
