Red Carpet Fashion Recap time. Award season is like a fashion orgy for me. So much pleasure'??an not much of it guilty. The stakes are high and the lights are bright.
The 2013 red carpet season kicked off with last night'??s Golden Globe awards.
The evening mixed talent from both TV (as Amy Poehler calls it the '??rat faces'?) and film. The lovely Tina Fey and Amy co-hosted the event. I liked their banter. It had an edge, but not a fatal one. Now if only these ladies hired better stylists for the night. I'??ve seen both of them dazzle. But tonight? Fizzle.
The good? Amy'??s hair. Loved the side bun. The bad. Amy'??s tux. C'??mon. Those pants soooo did not flatter her. And Tina, what about the golden va-va-voom dress from the promotional videos. You looked fabulous. The L'??Wren Scott black and white number did you no favors, Tina'??s hair doesn'??t work as well with her lovely checkbones when it is down. I think NBC threw them under the bus style-wise. Thankfully, they both have loads of talent to fall back on.
Who did I love at the awards? Let'??s start with Jennifer Lawrence (nominated for Silver Linings Playbook which I need to see). The young star had the flu and managed to look every inch the glamour queen in Dior haute couture looks freezing. Another ingenue who delivered the goods was Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta
When it came to the more "seasoned" actresses, there were two that stood out. Sally Field'??loved it. Pretty, elegant and sophisticated in Alberti Ferritti. Just the right amount of cleavage and sparkle. And then Julianne Moore. She had the best makeup of the night. The smoky eye appears to be here to stay. I love the rich browns and plums I saw on the red carpet. Julianne Moore was head to toe glam and was splendid in her Tom Ford dress.
What else worked? I admire the risk takers like Lucy Liu. Her Carolina Herrera lit up twitter. I for one, liked it. The Globes are a time to take chances. It'??s the first party and as Matt Lauer told me 9000 glasses of champagne are served'??it'??s a bubbly affair. I always love the way Julia Louis-Dreyfus put herself together for awards. Her lacey/nude Vera Wang dress hit all the right trends. She almost made by favorites but her hair didn't work.
Now let's talk key trends: lace, sheer, cleavage, red/coral.
Jennifer Lopez and Kerri Washington showing of sheer.
Some hot mamas--Jessica Alba and Clair Danes are newish moms!
Flaunt 'em if you've got 'em ladies.
The most adorable expecting mom award goes to Kristen Bell
(wife of Dax Sheppard) wearing Jenny Packham.
The misses. What was Giuliana Rancic wearing? She looked goth gone bad. And what is up with Jessica Chastains'?? helmet I mean hair. I give her this: Her boobs look good ant the blue color of the Calvin Klein Collection suited her but she looked mighty uncomfortable in the plunging neckline.
And finally my favorite part'?¦picking the dresses I would actually wear to an award show. Since I likely would only be working the carpet, not accepting, I don'??t need to steal the show, just keep up. I would love to see either of these dresses hanging in my closet: Olicia Munn in Giorgio Armani or Rachel Weisz in a Louis Vuitton dress and Serpenti bracelet. Oh it doiesn'??t hurt that she was on the arm of dapper husbandDaniel Craig.
