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

2013 Grammy Awards: Fashion Hits and Misses

Okay team, admittedly I totally dissed the Grammy’s broadcast this year by not watching any of the red carpet or the actual awards presentation. AND I have good reason! I spent most of the weekend sucked into the vapor of early British 1900’s life by indulging in the delicious mischievousness, and as a gal pal so rightly put it “20th century passive aggressive awesomeness!” with those crazy characters residing at Downton Abbey. After incessantly hearing about this show, I grabbed the first season and got to work on seeing what all the buzz about. Within 10 minutes, I knew I would dig it…and where I would be for most of the weekend.

Alas, the beauty of life these days is that you can catch all the re-caps the next day online minus all the commercials and boring speeches. So in salute to all things fashion, here are my top 5 hits and misses from the biggest night in music.


THE HITS


RHIANNA
LOVE everything about her look, super classy, a little showy and what a stunning color on her.

TAYLOR SWIFT
Such a unique dress and she pulls the look together with a braided headband and dramatic cat eyes. Very 21st century Cleopatra.
161394162-jpg_001610
KELLY ROWLAND
This was a VERY daring choice and if you look closely, might be borderline too much, but she pulls it off and takes center stage because of it. Move over, Bey!

 ROSCI DIAZ
Admittedly, I didn’t put two and two together when I first saw this picture (who is this?), but everything about her look is one of my absolute favorites of the night. Simple, sexy, classy!

ALLISON WILLIAMS
Simply put, this is just a great dress. No muss, no fuss and she looks flawless.

THE MISSES


ADELE
LOVE her, but the print on this dress and those shoes…
161393910-jpg_001303
FLORENCE WELCH
Again LOVE her, but those green turtle/alligator/scary spikes….

Jennifer Lopez
The leg is distracting and the cut of the gown looks messy to me. I love a good top bun, but the pointy ones, I just can’t get into. Sorry J-Lo!

KAT DENNINGS
Not a fan of the color, the fit on her chest (though she has a great one!), or her harsh makeup.

TAMIA
The head cover, deep-plunging strangely shaped dress and it’s color, don’t make me love it. The clutch is cute!

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!
