This past Sunday, January 12, was the 71st Annual Golden Globe Award Ceremony, which was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. Since 1961, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has honored excellence in film and television.
The red carpet at the Golden Globes is the first place for us to get a look at celebrities showing off their designer selections. This year, there was certainly a nod to the glamour of “Old Hollywood” among the men and the women. A few of the guys, including Mathew McConaughey and Chris Hemsworth channeled the look of the velvet “smoking jacket” in their choice of tuxedos. Mathew chose a deep forest green, velvet suit jacket with an elegant matching vest and black trousers by Dolce and Gabbana. His wife Camilla Alves was also not to be ignored in her “curve-hugging” black sequined gown of the same designer.
Chris Hemsworth also got the same memo as Mathew McConaughey and walked the red carpet in his navy velvet suit jacket. The fit is terrific and the contrast of the fabric is a phenomenal look. Elsa also looks elegant in her Paule Ka “mommy-friendly” black gown with the golden-laden halter style top.
Among a few of the women at the 71st Annual Golden Globes, there was move to incorporate the trend of color-blocking. One that I was not very fond of was the Prabal Gurung gown in pink, black, and blue that Sandra Bullock was wearing. The v-neck was flattering, but the rest of the dress just looked like it was pieced together with leftover material. Also, those shoes look like slip-ons! Come on, Sandie, check out Daniel Footwear for something a bit more elegant.
However, I think that Taylor Swift managed to get the color- blocking trend right with her Carolina Herrera creation that had a black strapless top and flowing, deep peach bottom.
