Fashion hits and misses at the Golden Globes
Fashion hits and misses at the Golden Globes.
The star studded 72nd Golden Globes kicked off in a glittering ceremony at the plush Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on January 11, 2015. Co-hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and watched in 160 countries around the world, the event lauded outstanding achievements in film and television in the year gone by. It was also the perfect opportunity for Hollywood celebs to sashay down the red carpet clad in haute couture finery. Of course film and television greats received awards aplenty but above all, was all about effortless red carpet glamor. They came, they saw and they conquered! Nykaa too watched avidly as the celebs turned up their glam quotients, strutting and posing, making sure the shutterbugs caught their every angle. Get your fashion fix right here, as we dissect the fashionistas who got it right and the unfortunate ones who didn’t.
The oh-so-adorable Emma Stone, turned up in an unconventional Lanvin jumpsuit complete with a strapless silver embellished bodice, androgynous pants and a dramatic bow on one side. This outfit was hands down, the most chic ensemble on the red carpet and Emma Stone made it look impossibly cool. Her short wavy bob, perfect smoky eye make-up and iris-colored lips firmly established her as a true-blue fashionista
Anna Kendrick created the aura of a fairytale princess as she walked the red carpet in a beaded, blush-colored Monique Lhuillier ball-gown. Extra brownie points for the sleek chignon, romantic, flawless make-up and pretty garnet drop earrings! Understated…we like!
Well, Lupita Nyongo needed a clean slate, especially after her debacle at the Met-ball last year. She redeemed herself at the Golden Globes, proving she’s fashion’s favorite girl in a Giambattista Valli Couture gown and Chopard jewellery. The ruffled lilac bodice went well with the beautiful, flowing ombre skirt. She was totally in sync with the latest make-up trend, sporting lovely metallic lavender eye shadow and fuchsia lips. Plus, she totally rocked that afro!
Allisson Williams was a definite stunner in a ruby-red Armani Prive tiered dress. She also rocked some serious old Hollywood glam with her slicked back retro chic waves and her dark rocker-chic smoky-eyed makeup and soft soy lips.
Leslie Mann made a very interesting choice for the glitzy night. She popped out on the red carpet donning a KaufmanFranco textured, smooth yellow hued dress with classic Jimmy Choos, an emerald green Ferragamo clutch and Kimberly McDonald baubles that perfectly highlighted her pretty hazel eyes. Her makeup was easy on the eyes with catchy red lips and sparkly-smoky peepers. The fact that the look was put together so well, made it a winning combination
Stunners in white!
White and metallic ruled the red carpet with a stream of A-listers favoring the two trends.
Kate Hudson strutted the red carpet in an unforgettable Atelier Versace gown with jewel-encrusted side-cuts and a plunging neckline that did complete justice to her flawless figure. She kept her hairdo low-key and tied back loosely. Minimalistic makeup, a hint of mascara and liner, and a dash of lip gloss completed her ensemble.
Jared Leto is always a wonder on the red carpet. He stepped out this time in a timeless white tuxedo with black lapels which did not disappoint at all. And to top it off, he styled his locks in a braid, thus moving away from man-buns to man-braids. Quite the trendsetter this!
Funny woman Julia Louis Dreyfus looked quite the Grecian goddess in a pristine white figure hugging Narciso Rodriguez dress. The bodice was sparkly and the length flattering. Her make-up had a shimmery hue to it, highlighting her sparkly earrings. A clear win-win combination!
Julianne Moore was a winner on and off the Red Carpet as well. She sparkled and shimmered as much as the Golden Globe trophy in a metallic silvery Givenchy Haute Couture dress complete with ruffles at the bottom. Her make was alluring, completely in sync with her dress consisting of nude lips and smoky, smoldering eye-makeup. Very sexy!
Dakota Johnson also made her presence felt at the Golden Globes, thanks to her stunning silver-grey Chanel Haute Couture dress. However, the thigh-high slit was much more interesting than the shimmery tail. She let her hair fall in simple and elegant waves at her shoulders, keeping her makeup subtle but rich with a tint of berry on the lips and dark liner on the eyes.
Kate Beckinsale exuded red-carpet perfection, right from her twisted hair-bun to her Ferragamo sandals. She was a vision in an Elie Saab dress with a sparkly bodice and stunning Bvlgari jewelry. She kept her make-up simple but very sophisticated, sporting nude lips and eyeliner. Her nails were immaculately burgundy, which blended well with her champagne-toned ensemble
Diane Kruger was distinctly simple and elegant in a silvery Emilia Wickstead creation. She channeled old Hollywood glamour and poise with élan. Her face emanated a dewy glow, thanks to her perfect choice of eyeshadow and nude lips. We also loved her intricate diamond earrings and bracelet.
Well, Hollywood men were not far behind from going all out on the red carpet and David Oyelowo was one of them. He wore a snazzy, shimmery midnight-blue Dolce and Gabbana 3-piece suit. David carried the look extremely well, looking coolly dapper!
During his speech at the George Clooney who won a Lifetime Achievement award, dubbed everyone sitting in the audience as winners. If only that was spot on with regards to red carpet fashion too. Here’s a list of celebs who committed the ultimate red carpet sins !
Dulcet voiced Lana Del Ray’s turquoise Travilla absolutely failed to achieve the desired vintage feel and received a lot of flak from fashion critics. It looked very vintage, and not in a nice way! Better luck next time, Lana!
Kiera Knightley has always been red carpet-fabulous. So it was heartbreaking to see her in a butterfly-print Chanel dress—which apparently took 30 people to embroider–that did not do any justice to her glowing face. Though, her makeup was the saving grace, it was not enough to save her from the ire of the fashion police. Although the she did not take home a trophy she did get to wear a diamond Chanel feather in her hair. Her softly whimsical, fairytale look was best reflected in her perfectly imperfect bun. She said afterwards, “I loved the feathers and butterflies on the dress, so I wanted something soft and pretty.” Soft and pretty? Yes! Red carpet worthy? No!!
Oh no she didn’t! Melissa McCarthy was seen in a do-it-yourself outfit, put together from her own wardrobe. Needless to say, it was a total red carpet disaster. The star, who is always fun and quirky with her DIYs even on the red carpet, failed to win approval for her outlandish outfit. No points for the over-sized sparkly bow on her bodice either!
The impressive star of Homeland, Claire Danes most definitely chose the wrong Valentino. Two words: too much! The actress clearly went overboard with this jeweled, embroidered V-neck gown. She was more appropriately dressed for Woodstock, rather than the most prestigious red carpet event of the year! We dig the shimmering blue eyes-shadow and electric blue flowery earrings though.
