Was anyone else surprised by some of the hair and makeup at the Golden Globes? For example: trend forecasters (this is a real job) have been calling for plenty of dark lips, particularly bordeaux and burgundy shades, this winter, but there were a sparse few to be found this past Sunday. Instead, our favorite celebs (and, yes, long-standing beauty icons) opted for fresher-faced looks, eluding any of the seasonal “trends” that were predicted. It was refreshing to see that the stars stayed true to their own personal sensibilities than just, “This is what’s hot for right now!” We did notice a few patterns popping up on the red carpet… Let’s take a look at the biggest 5 trends from the evening, and how to score them for ourselves.
I always get so inspired by red carpet fashion, until I realize that my day to day life affords me very few opportunities to wear sequin fishtail gowns, and then I get sort of depressed. But luckily for us non-famous folks, there were a few trends from last night’s Golden Globes ceremony that can easily translate to the real world: for example, sparkly statement earrings. Stars like Taylor Swift, Salma Hayek, Naomi Watts, Debra Messing, and Alyssa Milano wore huge, glam earrings last night, but this look works just as well with a little black dress for a dinner date as it does for the red carpet. Want to steal this celeb style? I found 10 pairs of gorgeous, sparkly statement earrings starting at just $24. Click through to check ‘em out…
“I feel a little bit kind of overexcited. It’s my first night out since I had my child and my inspiration normally comes from heartbreak, but I don’t think I’m ever going to be devastated again anymore, so we’re good.”
–Adele, speaking to reporters after her Golden Globes win for Best Original Song, describes how her new life as a mom might change the subject matter of her songs. Adele declined to reveal the name of her infant son (“It is very personal to me”), but did mention that she now has eczema from boiling bottles, which sounds like the only negative in a very happy life. (And maybe the basis for an emotional ballad? I’m reaching, I know, but I’m so desperate for more tragic Adele ballads that I would gladly listen to her sing about an itchy, flaky skin condition).

Can’t walk in heels? We feel you, girl. Especially for a red carpet event so high-profile and fancy, you want to feel confident, beautiful, and traditional — especially if it’s your first time there. It’s no surprise that Lena Dunham went with the safe choice in terms of red-carpet footwear — a black, peep-toe Christian Louboutin pump with a bit of a platform and a heck of a heel. However, the mix of nerves, Moët, and an unwieldy skirt probably made a precarious situation even worse. Read more…
As the saying goes, from great R&B bard/lady pee-er on-er R. Kelly, “After the show is the after-party.” And so we’ve decided to take a look at some of the Golden Globes after-party pics — full of celebs who changed outfits between the Globes and getting their drink on. These also include some celebs who maybe didn’t bother going to the actual awards show — but who really like to party. Those must have been some pretty interesting limo rides, right?
