Awards season 2015: here we go!
First of all, I have not seen too many movies this year for whatever reason, but I did see The Imitation Game on Christmas day and it is the best. I think it should win every award from now on! I am a full fledged Cumberbitch now!
Now lets talk about clothes. There was a lot of white on the red carpet, and a lot of rather simple dresses. Lots of glamorous mermaid and column silhouettes rather than more fashion forward unique choices. It seemed relatively understated overall, but very elegant. A lot of pretty and sexy dresses, but not many statement fashion pieces. A good steady start to Awards season.
I borrowed all of the images from People.com.
Amy Adams: At first I thought this was a little boring, but frankly it’s quite impeccable. Usually she chooses a bolder color, so I was surprised she went for a pastel blue. The draping and the fit couldn’t be better. If it wasn’t perfect I think it would fall in the realm of bridesmaid dress, but Amy did it right!
Jessica Chastain: She always cracks me up because she seems like such a sweet, understated person during the red carpet interviews, but she really serves up the drama with her dress every single time. Not a groundbreaking silhouette but it’s definitely working for her and I love a metallic!
Anna Kendrick: Anna is a Kate Spade spokesperson, and this gown seems very Kate Spade-ish to me so it makes sense. I like that it’s classic but has some interest with the beading. It works very well for her.
Reese Witherspoon: This is very plain but I think it’s just done very well. There were several stars that did similar looks, but the metallic kicks it up a notch. I don’t know that Reese is usually this sparkly so I was happy to see her amp it up a little. (The one thing that would have pushed it up one more notch would be some big sapphire statement pieces to add some interest)
Rosamund Pike: The concept of the dress is not terrible. I find it ill-fitting and very unflattering on her. It seems like the straps are two inches too long.
Amanda Peet: She usually leans towards a retro look (somewhere from 1920’s-1940’s), so this dress does not surprise me for her. I wish it was a little less blah. If the waist was defined with a wide band and it bloused out a little above the natural waist, it might be a little more flattering. With a little nip and a tuck it would be so much better, it’s just too much blousey material.
Taylor Schilling: The dress is not a bad dress, but the whole look seems way too severe and she does not look her best. I think it’s the middle part, strong eye brows, and red lips. It’s a little much.
Amal Clooney: Could this be more of a snooze? I think she was trying to be subtle so she wouldn’t steal George’s thunder, but I was very disappointed.
