Red Carpet Round-Up: Golden Globes

We sat. We watched. We critiqued.

During last night's Golden Globe Awards, we witnessed everything from let-downs to snooze-fests (what's with all the nude, beige, blush, greige, blah!) to some major WOW moments, though not nearly as many as I would have liked. 

My two top picks for best dressed have to be Claire Danes in J. Mendel and Emma Stone in Lanvin. These ladies really can do no wrong in my eyes but they also brought the most FASHION to the awards show.

Claire's laser cut black and white column gown looked so interesting and chic. Overall the front of the dress was very understated but those gorgeous cutouts along the shoulder and back knocked her look out of the park. Add red lips and a sophisticated 'do and we're into major hottie territory. Jordan Catalano is drooling right now. That is a look to win in, my friends!

Emma Stone gets mad props for wearing COLOR. Thank you, Miss Emma, for bringing some drama, including those jewel embellished cap sleeves. Gorgeous!

Rooney Mara did not disappoint in her signature black. Ladies, this is black done RIGHT- flowing yet fitted in all the right places, sexy cut outs fastened with demure bows. Her sleek pony and perfectly lined eyes kept her looking youthful and fresh. Love!

"Modern Family's" Ariel Winter arrived in a gorgeous amethyst Dolce & Gabbana frock. Her precious ensemble was age appropriate and fun. Moments like these should occur more frequently on the Red Carpet!

And though I was bored with all of the lack of color, Shailene Woodley from "The Descendants" did sparkle in Marchesa. Many of us had a "who's that girl" moment. I'm looking forward to seeing her style choices at future events.

Mermaids Sophia Vergara and Evan Rachel Wood shimmied down the carpet in petrol blues. While my jaw didn't necessarily drop for them, their dresses were interesting.

Of course, we can't post on the Globes without at least mentioning Charlize Theron's 1920s princess moment in Dior, Tilda Swinton's powder blue Haider Ackermann, Michelle Williams sweet Jason Wu and Jessica Chastain's beaded Givenchy. I didn't love them and I didn't hate them. But I do appreciate their choices and fashion sense.

Most of the men last night also looked very dapper. A classic black tux ALWAYS works. Thank you, Colin Firth and George Clooney.

What did you think of last night's Red Carpet? Who were your favorites? 

Can't wait til the next Red Carpet!


  1. I missed the show so glad I got to see your opinions!!

  2. Thanks, Slinks! You know I'll round 'em up for you!

  3. I missed the show too due to time difference and haven't had time to see everything but so far I agree with you. Would add Jolie to the list though!

  4. Agreed- I liked Angelina Jolie's look at first but all of those blush tones started blending together for me. At least she added some pops of red!!


Thanks for stopping by Savoir-Flair. I look forward to reading your comments!
