Best Dressed: The 2015 Golden Globe Awards

BEST DRESSED ATG FINAL_2015

Closing out a much-need, productive, yet relaxing 3-week vacation on the couch with my (they-just-don’t-know-it-yet) BFFs Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards wasn’t too shabby. At the very least, having the festivities of the show to fall back on did wonders at distracting me from my end of vacay blues.

Overall, the show kept me engaged. Though there were a few “WTF?” moments (paging: the weird vibe between Jeremy Renner and J-Lo), Tina and Amy did a great job. However, I always feel that the Globes (like the Oscars) should really incorporate their hosts into the show more. The Globes have to be the easiest hosting gig in town. Aside from the opening monologue, you only see them on-stage a few more times and it’s usually just to introduce someone, rather than keep the energy of the show alive.

I was happy to see some much deserved wins of the night (J.K. Simmons, I’m looking at you!); but also slightly disappointed at the unexpected upset for best actor in a motion picture. Admittedly, The Theory of Everything was the one big award-contending film I didn’t get to in 2014, but plan to catch soon. That being said, I was pretty sure David Oyelowo was a shoe-in for that honor for his formidable work as MLK in Selma. I guess we’ll see where The Academy stands on this issue next month.

And can we take a moment to reflect on the greatest speech of the night? Mr. George Clooney is in love. So in love. What a beautiful acceptance speech and the kindest words a man can utter to his new bride. The man had me choking back tears. Side note: I read that the tux he was wearing to accept the Cecil B. DeMille Award was, in fact, his recent wedding tux. Too sweet.

Aside from who takes home the statue – this is the night to star-gaze at all things fashion. I caught a bit of the red carpet pre-show, but ultimately was annoyed that we didn’t get to see steady wide shots of the gowns for any length of time because they were usually being interviewed at a medium. So, I did what any gal had to do…the internet. I got my full fashion fix the next day over a morning cup of tea.

I’ll preface, as I usually do, that when thinking about my favorites of the night – I went for total package glamour. This meant not only a show-stopping ensemble, but impeccable hair, make-up, and accessories. These ladies nailed it.

Here are my top 5 picks of the night…

5. | KATE HUDSON in Versace.

Best Dressed: The Top 5 Fashion Hits of the 2014 Golden Globe Awards

From the comfort of my couch and in my pajamas over pizza, last night was the perfect way to wind down a productive, yet relaxing weekend. The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards did a notable job of keeping a 3-hour presentation moving along; and though I always love Amy Poehler and Tina Fey on the mic, I recall last year being bit better executed on the comedic front. I was surprised to see some much deserved, but unexpected, wins of the night. (Robin Wright, I’m looking at you!) Of course, aside from who takes home the statue – this is the night to star-gaze at all things fashion. When thinking about my favorites of the night – I went for total package glamour. This meant not only a show-stopping gown, but impeccable hair, make-up, and accessories. There’s nothing worse than a gorgeous dress with terrible styling. These ladies nailed it. Here are my top 5 picks of the night:

5. | Reese Witherspoon in CALVIN KLEIN

Golden Globes: Fashion Hits and Misses

Not to brag, but this past Sunday I spent nearly four hours with the Hollywood elite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel sipping a cool beverage while rocking the most awesome ensemble to rival the stars…all from the comfort of my boyfriend’s apartment. Okay, so technically I was a few miles down the street, drinking bottled water, wearing a sweatshirt and some shorts; but hey – I was comfortable, warm, and had the best seat in the house!

The 2013 Golden Globe awards were surprisingly very entertaining this year. From the awesome duo hosting duties in funny gals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, to the surprise range of unexpected winners (didn’t see Argo beating out Lincoln!), and some pretty moving acceptance speeches (paging Jodie Foster!). It’s also the time to discuss all things fashion. Prior to the broadcast, I spent an hour and a half watching the Hollywood glitterati make their way down the red carpet. Here are my top 5 best and worst dressed ladies. Looking forward to Oscar Night!
