I hate to hate anything even remotely associated with the goddess Cate Blanchett, but this shiny, stiff-looking Armani Privé dress is testing the limits of her sartorial perfection. It’s like what an off-duty superhero would wear to a red carpet event, all latex-y and, like, “Hey, I may or may not be fighting crime and defending the city after dinner.” So it’s badass, of course, but is it cute? Do we like it? Does Cate get a free pass, just because she’s Cate? Probably.
What did you think of all the cutout dresses at the Golden Globes this year? Some dresses definitely worked better than others, but in general I loved seeing so many unique silhouettes and unexpected flashes of skin on the red carpet. Whatever your body type and levels of modesty, there are actually a ton of ways to get the cutout look. Want to show off your shoulders? Draw attention to your collarbone? Highlight your back? I found 10 sexy cutout pieces in a variety of styles and colors–click on the gallery to find the perfect one for you!
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.
It’s not often that you can find so many celebs in the same room — which is why we’re taking this opportunity to ogle the amazing hair and makeup at the 2013 Golden Globes. Who got it right? And who got it tragically, tragically wrong? We’ve made our picks — now tell us yours in the comments!
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?
Maybe the 2013 Golden Globes is a good omen of what’s to come this year, fashion wise. When they were bad, they weren’t all that bad, and when they were good, well, they were amazing. Stand out fashion stars on Sunday night’s Golden Globes red carpet included Kerry Washington, whose delicate shift played nicely off her modern hairstyle, and Katharine McPhee, who took a daring plunge into sexy town in all black. There was a lot to praise last night, and we’re hoping that as award’s season continues, we’ll see more great looks from these stars.
These were our favorites, but don’t forget to share yours in the comments!
Okay, honest: There wasn’t that much actual dreckitude at this year’s Golden Globes. As much as we love deriding a dress that’s just totally wrong, most celebs got it pretty spot on. So don’t think that everyone in this category is a total failure. It’s just that … they could have done better. It wasn’t that, for instance, Lena Dunham looked awful — it’s just that we would have picked something else for her. Maybe something not so heavy and drapery-like. And it’s not that Kristen Wiig didn’t look like a knock out. It’s just … the belly cutout on that dress was a bit too “pregnant high school girl at the prom.” But Julianne Hough? Sorry girl, your dress was tres terrible!
So we give the “bad” rating with those caveats in mind. Everyone there last night was a winner, and way better dressed than you or me, sitting on the couch watching at home (okay, maybe just me).
And who knows … maybe by this year’s Academy Awards we’ll be able to give some of them a mark for Most Improved.
Okay, fine, her skin looks amazing, but I really want to come at Tay Tay with some cotton swabs, makeup remover, and a blending brush right about now, because all that rust eyeshadow is making her look rather corpse-y. On the plus side, her breasteses look fab! Harry Styles, boy, eat your clam-loving heart out.
I’ve done a pretty good job of convincing myself that I bear a certain resemblance to universal girlcrush Rachel Weisz. Nobody aside from myself has ever suggested that to me, but we have similar (large) noses, so I kind of took that idea and ran with it. Look me in the eye and tell me you don’t see it. Anyway, she always looks so freakin’ elegant, like she’s from another era. A cooler era! This Bottega Veneta dress fits her perfectly, the rust color is super-flattering to her complexion, and she’s pulling off that generally awkward below-the-knee length so well. Which shouldn’t be surprising, because I am pretty sure Mrs. James Bond can pull off aaaaaanything. I know, I know, she’s an incredibly talented and successful actress in her own right, not just someone’s wife… but she’s also Mrs. James Bond.
Have you guys seen “Django Unchained”? I’m kind of embarrassed that I haven’t yet, but it just requires, like, so much effort to actually plan it and go to the movie theatre, and spending $15 just to sit down and watch something always makes me feel weirdly cheated. I’m the type of person that will spend however much on clothes or makeup and then bitch about the price of a movie, which is actually a really terrible quality now that I think of it. I should address that.
Anyway, “Django Unchained”! Kerry Washington is in it. Here she is at the Berlin premiere in a checkered Louis Vuitton dress (from the same collection as the black and white playsuit Kristen Stewart wore back in October), which she accessorized with a white bow headband and white pumps. Something about the way the dress falls has an “Alice in Wonderland” disproportional effect, like she could either be very large or very small, which is only magnified by the girly (indeed, very Alice-esque) headwear and tiny rectangular clutch. That said, I think I love it. It’s weird and sort of mod, and I am certainly not opposed to “Wonderland” chic. Are you feeling it, or is it a little too artsy for your taste?
