The Golden Globe Awards have been for achievements in both television and film, since the first ceremony was held in 1944. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association awarded the 2013 Golden Globes at the Beverly Hills Hotel where celebrities walked the Red Carpet in what they believe to be outstanding fashion. Some seem to always “hit the mark” and some do not.
One guy that seems to be consistently be right on trend when it comes to formal fashion is Robert Downey Jr. Nothing is hotter right now than velvet. It is a fabric that has spanned the ages, but still manages to be both vintage and modern in its appeal. At the 70th Golden Globe Awards this year, he was wearing a two-button tuxedo jacket with a thin lapel that was made out of silky velvet. Even though it is a simple design, the fabric elevates the tuxedo jacket to a more elegant level. Also, the slight contrast in fabric of the trousers and bowtie, as well as the crisp white shirt, gives it a subtle interest.
The second Red Carpet Walker who demonstrated his knowledge of fashion trends is Casper Smart. His formal wear consisted of a pair of black trousers that is combined with a nicely tailored white tuxedo jacket with wide lapels and a matching black pocket square. The pairing of black and white has been a wardrobe staple forever and it will continue to be in the future. Casper also keeps the formal look a little more edgy with his “tie-less” button-down shirt. Since his gal pal Jennifer Lopez creates her own line of clothing, Casper better keep up in the fashion department.
This year at the Golden Globes, Robert Pattinson was someone who I thought “missed the mark”. His navy blue tuxedo with the standard necktie and somber expression are just boring. It makes him look like he is being forced to take his cousin to the prom! There are so many great alternative choices when it comes to formal wear today, so why not have some fun?
