It’s awards season in the land of the rich and famous and when it comes to awards fashion, there are always some clear winners that just know exactly how to rock the perfect red-carpet look. From a radiant Lady Gaga to a risky choice from the usually effortlessly chic Anne Hathaway. Let’s take a look at who stole the show when it comes to sartorial credentials at this year’s Golden Globes.
No one can mention this year’s Golden Globe awards without a spotlight for Lady Gaga. As well as winning an award for her song in this year’s biggest movie A Star Is Born, Lady Gaga won serious points for her stunningly breath-taking ball gown, courtesy of Valentino. A possible homage to Judy Garland, who starred in the original 1954 version of the movie, Gaga matched her hair to her frosty lavender gown.
She’s a part of the younger Hollywood set but a star non-the-less. Dakota Fanning proved that when it comes to dressing the part, the Golden Globes dress code is not a problem for her. Opting for an icy hue with an old-school Hollywood sweetheart neckline, Dakota choose a ball gown from Armani laced with the perfect touch of diamonds.
Doing it for the Brits, Emily Blunt seriously wowed in a unique Alexander McQueen semi-sheer gown with the perfect hint of sparkle to catch every camera flash. A modest neckline and handkerchief hem kept the look contemporary, paired with minimal accessories and jewellery.
Taking her red-carpet style in a new direction, Julia Roberts proved that it’s not all about flashy statement looks with her ultra-demure trousers and asymmetric bodice combination. Choosing classic black and nude to perfectly compliment her colouring, the actress kept it chic in Stella McCartney teamed with a naturally sun-kissed hair and makeup look.
A controversial choice from Anna Hathaway led to mixed reactions from style critics. Unfortunately, we’d have to agree. It was more than a subtle nod to this season’s biggest trend. Anne opted for top-to-toe leopard print and the combination resulted in some serious trend overkill. Pairing a voluminous ball gown skirt in bold leopard print with a sultry thigh-high slit with a semi-sheer leopard corset, Anne managed to prove that sometimes, less really is more.
Secured in her place as serious Hollywood elite, Nicole Kidman has seen her fair share of LA red carpets. Unfortunately, this time, taking a risk with her look didn’t pay off. Donning a high-neck, long-sleeved and floor-length sequinned gown were all too much for the Oscar-winning actress. The look was further killed with a miss-matched and not-so-chic sphere bauble bag.
With only a couple of exceptions, the 2019 Golden Globes was once again a platform of style inspiration. The red carpet was filled to the brim with chic fashionistas experimenting with style and showing us mere mortals exactly how it’s done. Moving on with awards season, we’ll be looking forward to the SAG awards, the Grammys and, of course, the Oscars towards the end of February for all things style and showbiz.
