Golden Globes Round-Up: Shoulders, Sleeves, Backless, and Green with Envy

18 Jan

My favorite time of year has begun, Redddddddd Carpppettt Seasonnnnnn!!!! (Oprah voice, obviously)

I talked over the entire awards show with my posse so I have no idea who won an actual award, but I knew immediately who won my best dressed.

Best in Show – Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive

She killed it! Hathaway is hosting the Oscars and this dress is clearly a preview of what her and her stylist Rachel Zoe have been cooking up. Love the demure long sleeves, the sparkle, the linebacker shoulder and the low cut back. It fits her like a glove and clearly Team Hathaway has built a great reputation with Armani since last year’s Oscars.

Runner Up – Emma Stone

Emma Stone in Calvin Klein

She looked incredible! I loved the minimalism, the fit was perfect, the color was dreamy and the open back kicked it up a notch. Her new blond hair made a strong impact (apparently her natural hair color) and her presence on the red carpet made me watch Easy A On Demand. Stone was nominated for her role as Olive, a modern day Hester Prynne, although Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson stole the film as her parents.

Emerald Green and Rhiannon

Emerald green made a very strong showing at this year’s globes, with some stars pulling it off better than others (Peggy – love you, hate the pleats.)

Angelina Jolie in Versace, Catherine Zeta-Jones in Monique Lhuillier, Mila Kunis in Vera Wang and Elisabeth Moss in Donna Karan

Another troubling trend was Mother-of-the-Bride disco hippie. Seriously I was so confused by these choices. Sandy and Scarlet are going through divorces, but JLo really has no excuse why she is wearing a cast-off from the Stevie Nicks QVC collection.

Sandra Bullock in Jenny Packham, Scarlet Johansson in Elie Saab, Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

    You are so effin’ funny!!! I almost busted out laughing in my FIRST class of the semester. So much for my New Year’s resolution – “Pay attention in class.”
