Celebrity Style: The 73rd Golden Globes with Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Hudson, Julianne Moore, Taraji P. Henson and more

Here’s the thing about the Golden Globes this year: social media has pretty much ruined the big moments! News comes so fast and furiously these days that by the time you want to talk about the looks a day later…it feel like it’s already old news. So many designer labels and GIFs have already been posted on Twitter that everyone knows about it and nothing is really a surprise anymore since every moment is quickly captured in a hashtag or a tweet a second later.

Because of this, the big moments, unfortunately, are getting smaller and smaller year after year.

We’re not here to talk about Leo’s reaction to Lady Gaga bumping his chair or Brad Pitt’s important faces. Let us reflect on the biggest fashion moments! Jewel tones were back with a vengeance as were CAPES, on the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Taraji P. Henson, Emilia Clarke, Regina King, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Saoirse Ronan were who all played a powerful tribute to a new red carpet trend.

Let’s check out more of the 73rd annual Golden Globes fashion that rocked the red carpet.

Jewel Tones That Popped

What an incredible creation by the Dior brand and even more so, how perfectly it fits Jennifer Lawrence and elongates her already slim waist!

Gina Rodriguez in Zac Posen wore one of the stand-out dresses of the evening.

Jade is a gorgeous color for Jada Pinkett Smith.

I actually don’t love the fit of this gown on Kate Winslet – I think it’s the satin addition on the slit that really doesn’t work. I suppose the designer was trying to do something different here, but for me, it didn’t look quite right on Kate Winslet’s frame. Nevertheless, the color is GORGEOUS!

Another unique neckline in a gorgeous color. Special necklines were everywhere this year. Of course, for me, the off-the-shoulder looks on Rachel Bloom, Gina Rodriguez, and Amy Schumer were the stand-outs.

Does Angela Bassett age backwards or what?

Unique Collars and Necklines (Eva Longoria, Natalie Dormer, Kirsten Dunst, Lady Gaga)

I know there were mixed reviews on this, but I quite loved the look on Eva Longoria. For a woman who is often about sparkle and lavish trains, I thought the dress with its unique collar, sleeves, and embellished flowers was very ladylike and demure.

Emilia Clarke

High necks don’t really do it for me, unless you pull off a look like the one Emilia Clarke wore to the Golden Globes. Because the skirt and sleeves are so busy, the top half is just right and makes the entire look elegant. Also, the capes trend is on display here. (It’s one of those trends that was found on the red carpet but I didn’t give it its own section in this post.)

What an absolutely gorgeous and unique color on Amber Heard. With beautiful neckline, of course.

The skirt on Amy Schumer‘s gown is a bit over powering, but the top half is stunning.

Magical Prints

Not a stand-out, in my opinion, but very very different and a cool print. The next few, however, pack a punch! See Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Jaimie Alexander

Capes and trains and ruffles…oh my!

Whoa Baby Dresses!

These frocks stood out from the crowd — because of their texture, their unique silhouette, or in the case of Bryce Dallas Howard — because she picked it up at Neiman’s!

Thank god she God rid of that pixie cut. I couldn’t stand it on her. It definitely made her look like she was trying very hard to look older. This is definitely one of the best looks I’ve ever seen on Zendaya.

Leave it to Olivia Palermo to take a dress off-the-rack and make it stand out at the Golden Globes, with a special David Webb gold leaf choker, of course.

Compared to her not-so-great look at the People’s Choice, this one on Melissa McCarthy is a winner.

This Givenchy will probably get mixed reviews. I actually think Cate Blanchett has looked better in the past – but I do like that she always takes risks and looks elegant doing so.

Bryce Dallas Howard did make size 6 sound like it was too big — but at least she was being truthful!

Washed Out Textured Dresses

I guess this segment could also be called “Light Colored Textured Dresses,” but anyone who has read one of my pieces before knows that I’m not a big fan of peachy, light colored dresses. I feel they make the celebs wearing them look washed out.  This year is no exception, but the lacy, textured gowns were back with a vengeance.

I can’t take our eyes off those abs (or the coolness of this crop top and skirt) but I hate how the color blends with Kate’s own skin tone. Still, only Kate Hudson and her gorgeous abs of steel can pull this off. After all, she does have a line of athleticwear (Fabletics).
