And the ones that I HATE…

Jennifer Lopez Golden Globes 2013

1. At first when I saw Jennifer Lopez’ dress, I was amazed, not because of the dress itself as such, but more just because I was thinking ‘wow, is she even wearing anything from the knees up, or did she just hire a body artist?!’ but then this thought trickled away and I actually looked at the dress itself… I am all for the whole ‘if you’ve got it, flaunt it’ trend, but there is a fine line between sexy flaunting and downright slutty…. I mean, I know there’s nude fabric protecting Ms Lopez’ modesty, its not just 100% lace, but still…. jeez.

Rachel Weisz Golden Globes 2013

2. I was so disappointed when I saw Rachel Weisz’ dress. I love her! She’s beautiful, she’s an amazing actress – have you not seen The Constant Gardener?! But this…? Damn it Rachel!

Sienna Miller Golden Globes 2013

3. Another big disappointment. I always look to Sienna Miller when I can’t quite decide what to wear or I’m stuck in a bit of a fashion rut… this dress was a bad choice 😦 I just don’t get it, it’s silly, its fussy, it looks like something my five year old sister would design… just no.

Lucy Lu Golden Globes 2013

4. At first, I put this Carolina Herrera dress straight into the Worst Dressed category . but it’s growing on me. I can’t decide if its because I’m starting to like the dress itself, or because it reminds me of a typical Tim Walker Vogue spread and therefore I, being a huge Tim Walker fan, want to photograph this dress! However, I do love how Lucy Liu has teamed it with a yellow clutch bag and casual fishtail braid! I never did master those damn fishtail braids before I decided to cut off all of my hair!

Lena Dunham Golden Globes 2013

5. Lena Dunham in Zac Posen….. love the dress… but not on her. It just doesn’t suit her, in my opinion… though the chocolate hue definitely does!

Kerry Washington Golden Globes 2013

6. Kerry Washington… nooooo. It’s just such a bizarre dress… Miu Miu, lovely colour, but I don’t understand this whole short under-dress, long sheer over-skirt thing – just as with Rachel Weisz’ dress. That’s a really strange trend for me, and I’ll be glad when it’s over!

Julianne Moore Golden Globes 2013

7. Julianne Moore is wearing a custom made Tom Ford dress… I love the dress, and I love Julianne Moore, but not together. I don’t think she has a defined enough waist to pull this off, and while I’m guessing the monochrome waist detail is supposed to bring in her waist, it just doesn’t… However, I do love the back of the dress!

Halle Berry Golden Globes 2013

8. Halle Berry.. I’m torn about this Versace gown.. the one shoulder look really suits her, in fact the entire dress from the waist up suits her, and I love the sheer fabric detail on the shoulder, but the cut out bodice is a mess :/ and it’s just too.. busy.

Giuliana Rancic Golden Globes 2013

9. Giuliana Rancic’s dress would be great for a Vogue Halloween party, but it’s just too gothic and cold for something like the Golden Globes. And it would have looked better had it actually been an off-the-shoulder dress, rather than having the weird nude-coloured fabric over her shoulders.

Jessica Chastain Golden Globes 2013

10. Finally… Jessica Chastain in Calvin Klein… the colour really suits her amazing hair colour.. buttttt.. the horrible baggy top of the dress really ruins her boobs!

More Lovelies…

1. Nicole Richie in Naeem Khan. I love her blue eyeshadow. I love the colour of this dress; I think the colour stops all of the embellishments that cover every inch of fabric from becoming glitzy and OTT. So demure and lovely.

Michelle Dockery Golden Globes 2012

2. Michelle Dockery in Alexandre Vaultheir. Definitely my second favourite dress of them all, after Kate Hudson’s amazing McQueen dress. Her figure is amazing, and is really has to be to pull off something as fitted as this! Love the gold detail and the high neckline. Love, love, love. ♥

Anne Hathaway Golden Globes 2013

3. Anne Hathaway. Now that her hair has grown a bit, it really suits her. And I keep hearing people say that she should carry on regaining the weight that she lost.. she always looked great, but personally I think she looks just as amazing when she’s this thin too! She’s wearing Chanel Couture, and she just looks so lovely and angelic and delicate.

Jessica Alba Golden Globes 2013

4. Jessica Alba. I’ve never been a big fan on top-to-toe coral or peach but it really suits her. Oscar de la Renta. Love the style and shape of the skirt. However… the orange lipstick teamed with coral is a bit predictable, and I hate the weird, fluffy handbag. I’m sure I had something like that in my dressing up box when I was a child…

Salma Hayek Golden Globes 2013

5. How incredible if Salma Hayek’s figure! Apparently she considers herself ‘short and chubby’, so I’ve decided, she must be insane to think that of herself. The bow at her hipbone really draws the eye to those amazing curves…. what else need be said? ♥

Megan Fox Golden Globes 2013

6. Megan Fox. Dolce & Gabbana, teamed with a pair of Jimmy Choo’s, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch bag. She looks so angelic!

Golden Globes… The Good 2#

Award Shows always bring out the ‘OTT fashionista’ in me, and I thought (with some encouragement…. no…. nagging from my lovely fashion-obsessed girlies), as I tend to spend hours after every big event like the Golden Globes talking about what every wore, I may as well post it on my blog.

I love looking at all of the beautiful dresses, and raising a brow at the fashion faux pas. If only it was acceptable to walk around in evening gowns like those seen at the Oscars and Golden Globes without people accusing me of insanity…

Those that I LOVE

Heidi Klum Golden Globes 2012

1. I love Heidi Klum’s dress; from Alexandre Vauthier’s Fall 2012 Couture Collection. Worn with Louboutin ‘Un Bout’ pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewels…. exactly how it was worn on the catwalk, in fact. She looks like a goddess! With some vintage hollywood glamour thrown in there, with her hair styled into lovely golden curls. Wow.

Naomi Watts Golden Globes 2012

2. Naomi Watts is another lovely who cannot do wrong in my eyes (I like to pretend that the little fashion fiasco of the 25th Annual Israeli Film Festival didn’t happen!). I need this dress. I don’t know when I would ever get to wear it… but its just lovely. I love the colour, I love that it’s backless and elegant and demure. I love that its a Zac Posen dress – I’ve loved him ever since I first watched the Sex and The City movie! I would have probably added a tinnnyyy bit of matching plum red lip gloss, but nothing as heavy as matte lipstick, but there you go.

Kate Hudston Golden Globes 2013

3. Kate Hudson. This is quite possibly my favourite dress of them all! It’s McQueen (Sarah Burton), and I just love the neck detail – the basic style and cut of this dress is really classic, but the neck detail just makes it like.. wow. Someone buy me this dress please? It’ll only be… about several grand….

Nicole Kidman Golden Globes 2013

4. Nicole Kidman. More Alexander McQueen!!! Yay 😀 The stud detail around the neckline is very McQueen, but not in a ‘oh when are they going to get over that and move on?’ kind of way – and her hair is the perfect length for that. In fact that’s one thing about Kate Hudson’s dress; as much as her hair is great down, it hide the detail around the collar! The sheer midriff is amazing, and of course she has the figure to pull it off. Note to the chavs who I often see lingering outside of Derby’s Mcdonalds in size 18+ crop tops, no, you cannot pull this off… and please stop wearing crop tops!

Golden Globes 2013

5. I’ve seen this in four or five people’s ‘worst dressed’ blogs.. but I like it :/ It’s a Halston gown too, so not as insanely, bank-busting expensive as all of the McQueens and de la Renta’s.. I can’t understand why so many people don’t like it!

Helen Mirren Golden Globes 2013

6. Honestly I think Helen Mirren is my ultimate beauty/fashion idol – in a ‘i hope I look that good when I’m in my 60’s’ kind of way, rather than a ‘I want to look/dress like her right now in 2013’ kind of way, of course! Stunning, stunning, stunning. Badgley Mischka, I love you ♥

Sally Field Golden Globes 2013

7. Sally Field is another gem who looks amazing for a woman in her mid-sixties! I swear celebrities are a whole different species!! They just never age!! I think this dress was custom made by her.. I’m not sure, so I’ve heard, but it definitely looks perfect on her! The colour, the cut, everything! It’s Alberta Ferretti. Love.

Sofia Vergara Golden Globes 2013

8. Sofia Vergara, of Modern Family. Unfortunately couldn’t find out who designed this dress, but I love it. So elegant! And luckily there was no wardrobe malfunction like the huge fiasco of the Emmy 2012 awards that she shared all over her twitter page!

Kelly Osbourne Golden Globes 2013

9. Kelly Osbourne. I never would have thought that the purple rinse would have worked… and at first I really hated it, but it’s since grown on me and quite frankly, she looks amazing! The purple really goes well with the colour of her dress, which is also by the lovely Zac Posen. In some shots that I’ve seen, it looks more of a cream/very pale green, but going from this shot, I love the sea foam/pale duck egg blue – probably my favourite colour at the moment!

Taylor Swift Golden Globes 2013

10. My, my… did you see her face when Adele won? She reminded me of that scene in Mean Girls, you know, to your face its: ‘oh my god your skirt is so cute, where did you get it?’, and behind your back, ‘that’s the ugliest skirt I’ve ever seen’. I don’t think Miss Swift is used to losing. And personally I’m so glad that Adele won! As for her dress.. Donna Karen, so elegant, love the colour, shame about the visible stick on bra in some shots…
