Award season is here. For those interested in film, television and music it’s a pretty exciting time. For those interested in fashion, it’s an equally alluring few months, as trends seen on the Golden Globe, Grammy and Oscar red carpets set the tone for many of the year’s trends. From fast fashion chains like Forever21 to holiday collections across the board, we will see many of this year’s red carpet trends integrated into mainstream fashion.
Setting the award season tone, the Golden Globes, offered some glitz, glamor, sparkle and color. While traditional black gowns were present, the normally omnipresent color was definitely void. Rather, emerald green, worn by Catherine Zeta Jones, Angelina Jolie and Mila Kunis, made quite the star style statement.
Long sleeved dresses, something rarely seen on black-tie red carpets, was a pervasive trend. Anne Hathaway rocked a shimmery long-sleeve and backless number, while Leighton Meester opted for a soft, printed gown. While the look channels the 80’s, these ladies made it look modern and chic.
One-shoulder looks continue to be a fashionable fad. Nicole Kidman wore a white, sequined version, Lea Michelle opted for a ruffly pink one and Amy Adams stunned in a blue, laser cut gown.
One of the biggest trends of the evening was sparkly gowns in soft pink and nude shades. This feminine look was worn by Sandra Bullock, Scarlett Johanson, Megan Fox and Carrie Underwood to name a few.
Male celebs also opted for a shiny effect on suits and tuxes. Ryan Gosling chose a velvet suit, while Robert Downey Jr. and Blair Underwood both glistened at the Golden Globes with shimmery suits.
If this red carpet does actually have a significant impact on this year’s trends, our closets will brim with feminine, jewel-tone pieces that have a hint of star sparkle.
So, who do you think were the best and worst dressed at the Golden Globes?
