2017 Golden Globes: Best and Worst Dressed

I’m back from hibernation, because it’s the beginning of awards season! Starting with the Golden Globes tonight, as always there were some great outfits, and some that left me scratching my head. There was a real range of trends this year because there were a lot of romantic, flowy, flowery gowns, but then also really simple, well structured dresses as well. There were even several pants suits on the women this year! Lots of really pretty outfits and people out there!

As usual, all the pics are from People.com.

As always, Reese Witherspoon is doing it, and doing it, and doing it well. This dress is so simple, but so flawless. Yellow was big on the carpet, and she chose a great shade with a great bodice. It’s fashionable, flattering, and on point!

Pink seemed to be a big trend on the red carpet this week, and I love the cool detail on the bodice of Carrie Underwood‘s dress. It’s great because it’s both fashion forward and really flattering for her. And PS- she has abs for days!

This is everything! I love that Lily Collins went all the way with this. It’s all the good stuff in one dress and she makes it work. I always think it’s fun when someone goes with a ballgown, but they don’t usually have this much fabulous details. It’s just awesome.

YASSSS! Felicity Huffman is giving me so much Jane Fonda with this look and I love it! Sparkle, jumpsuit, what else do you need?

I’m not always in love with Mandy Moore because she maintains kind of a retro, romantic vibe on the red carpet. This dress, however, is a great nod to some retro trends, but done in a really chic, flattering way. It’s quite simple but quite perfect.

Worst

This is a weird one from Jessica Biel. There’s a lot a random going here, and I’m sure it’s supposed to be high fashion, but it’s just not that cute.

This dress on SJP seems both over whelming and under whelming to me. I expect better from you SJP. Her eyes always look a little alien when she goes with heavy liner. The hair also isn’t helping anything.

This dress seems like it’s supposed to be drapey and glam, but it just seems like such a mess to me. It also seems like Anna Chlumsky did not put a lot of thought in the entire look. It’s just kind of, meh for me.

First, let the record show, I think she looks very good. Second, I think Bri Larson could have easily worn this to her high school prom and fit right in. It fits like a dream but it’s just not that fabulous.

Keri Russell, let’s be honest, do you have a permit to wear animal print. She looks like she’s in a little over her head in this dress. This is a lot. Dial it back sweetie, stay in your lane.

Academy Awards 2016: Best and Worst

I think simplicity really won out this year for red carpet fashion. There was a lot of color, but generally solid simple frocks. There were definitely no swans and barely any ball gowns. People kept it simple this year. I think, if anything, draping and architectural details were trends this year, weather it was extra swags of fabric or an architectural accent on the bodice. Here are my best and worst.

As always the photos are from People.com.

Saoirse Ronan looks stunning in this green beaded gown. It’s kind of everything at once because it’s completely beaded but I think the emerald color makes it less flashy than a metallic gold or silver beaded gown. The color is so great for her and it’s definitely a great pic for a nominee. I might have done a necklace rather than statement earrings, but to each their own.

I really liked Olivia Munn’s dress. The color was great for her and the silhouette is innovative but simple and flattering. She could have amped up the earrings a little, but besides that it’s pretty perfect.

Sarah Silverman has definitely gotten better over time with her style. I think she’s keeping it low key because she is probably more of a plus one for the Awards (though I know she’s been doing some more serious stuff lately). Her dress is understated but flawless.

Worst

I was disappointed by Brie Larson. I thought she did really well at the other awards shows this year, but this is kind of blah to me. It’s giving me prom dress. I think she could have done better, especially for a big nominee.

Reese Witherspoon was another snooze for me. I realize she’s not a nominee so maybe she didn’t have to be as on point as last year, but I think we could have done something more interesting or sleeker than this. It was also a very similar in color and cut to Tina Fey, but I think Tina’s was better.

To complete the prom dress trifecta, I think Emily Blunt is 90’s prom all day. I know 90’s style is kind of in right now, but I don’t think this dress is doing anything for her. It washes her out and the cut is not particularly flattering. (Also, is she pregnant? I forget)

What are your thoughts?

Academy Awards: Best and Worst

First, I must say, everyone look exceedingly clean at the Academy Awards. I was especially proud of the boys because it seemed like everyone shaved and combed their hair. I think it’s clear from my “best” choices that I love a simple statement. I don’t think there were many bombs or huge statement successes this year, most women seemed to stay in their lane. A lot of middle of the road, pretty dresses. I could have easily added two or three more to my best list. As always, the photos were borrowed from People.com. My Best: Reese Reese Witherspoon. It’s so simple but so perfect. She really found the silhouette that works for her, and she’s sticking to her strengths. I can’t fault her for that. Cumberbatch Sophie Hunter (Cumberbatch). Take note, this is maternity glamour done correctly. I think Keira Knightly needs to pay attention. Usually maternity gowns are more voluminous, etherial, or floaty, but the new Mrs. Cumberbatch was spot on with this red number. I promise I didn’t just pick this because of her husband… Gwenyth Gwyneth Paltrow. I am usually not Ms. Paltrow’s biggest fan, but I am a sucker for a dress with an architectural statement flower. This choice definitely seems well within her comfort zone and reminds me of many of her previous choices, but I’m not bored. I think she found a good version of her look this time around. Sienna Sienna Miller. This has a very French sensibility to it and I think it works very well. It’s beyond chic and definitely on the classic and glamorous end of Ms. Miller’s fashion spectrum. A nice change from some of her bohemian moments. My Worst: Gayle Gayle King. I’m not quite sure why she was at the Academy Awards, but Ms. King knows better than this. This looks like a poorly tailored, cheap prom dress. It’s the wrong color and wrong silhouette for her. Chastain Jessica Chastain. Usually she is on my best list, but I think this one is a yawn. Everything seems to be a little bit off. The slit is awkward, the neckline is awkward, the fabric is weird. We can do better. Chrissy Chrissy Teigen. I feel like this is Ms. Teigen’s best impression of JLo. I think it was just redundant and too much at the same time. Stacy and Clinton from “What Not to Wear” always said that you need to pick one focal point, and she just picked all the focal points. She needs to watch some vintage TLC programming.
