Never in my life I’ve wanted to be a celebrity on the red carpet (well, okay maybe it has crossed my mind a couple of times), until this year’s Golden Globes. I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s me staying home, maybe I’m growing old, maybe my tastes change, or maybe it’s just a mood thing, but men did I love the big dresses at the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet or what! Those who know me know I’m a sucker for glamorous dresses, simple, classic with a dash of sexy or old Hollywood style.
Best Dressed – 2019 Golden Globes
While I still like those I think this year the red carpet belonged to statement huge dresses, in blue, red, nude, green, white, and very little black. As soon as I saw Lady Gaga my heart stopped. I LOVE that dress so much, and the colour is absolutely amazing! I love that she coordinated with her hair in true Gaga fashion and slays it! Another big dress fave of mine was Lili Reinhart. So glamorous, airy, sexy, tasteful and high fashion but wearable and young – I loved it from the bottom of my heart. I really like her so much so I was really happy to see her wow-ze like that.
(do you ever get that feeling, of happiness when your fave pulls through and slays, and really sad when they don’t? #Iliveforthem)
Continuing the big dresses beautiful parade was Emmy Rossum. I loved that dusty pink and fairy like fabric, the minimalist sweet look. I am not too keen on the long torso look, but I’ll let it go. Jameela Jamil wore the prettiest coral princess dress ever. And while I’m usually not a fan of this silhouette I LOVE IT. And I love how the lipstick matches the dress. I feel like it does half the work.
Constance Wu was probably the prettiest lady in the prettiest dress. I think it’s so fresh, so stylish, young, elegant but effortless and sophisticated that I’m in love with this look. From dress style, to fabric, colour, and the waist ribbon I’m a fan. When I first saw Gemma Chen I let a loud Wow slip. I was amazed and in love. It feels like a painting, like some massive flower, or cake, or something really beautiful. I love the colour, and the fact that she went monochromatic with the look, and I love the shape of the dress. Hair and makeup beautiful and simple. I wanna love Kaley Cuoco‘s dress but ever since I saw it I go back and forth between loving it or not. I absolutely adore the bottom half, but the upper part feels a bit too heavy for it… Hair is not my fave choice for this dress, BUT I do like the dress more than I don’t so…
Apart from these classic princess dresses with a twist, the night belonged to blue dresses and white mainly, and straight or mermaid silhouettes.
Giuliana Rancic and her colleague Sibley Scoles both looked so good. Beautiful and glamorous. Giuliana did her simple classic glam number, and Sibley put her edgy spin on it.
I loved Kristin Cavallari’s dress so much! Except for the too long sleeves, I adore the colour, the details the fabric, the makeup… FLAWLESS! Dakota Fanning shined like a little diamond. Beautiful dress, but I feel like her lipstick is doing all the work, cause were it not for it, it would’ve all been too washed out.
Amy Adams wore Calvin Klein so of course the whole look is super minimal. But you know what? I really like it. It’s a classic silhouette with a very hard colour to pull off, but Amy rocks it. Loving the big bracelet as an only jewellery. Regina King – simple, to the point. I like the dress, I love the fabric, and kudos to her for keeping the rest minimal.
I don’t know who she is but Jeannie Mai rocked a pretty rocknroll dress. I legit love this so much. I feel like it’s very opulent, elegant, edgy, cool, very Marie Antoinette 2019.
Yvonne Strahovski is the exact opposite. Simple, girly, sweet, elegant. She looks very nice. Octavia Spencer was among the ver few to wear black. I really like this look, it’s classic, but a little cheeky with the shorter hem.
Gina Rodriguez – I LOVED her dress. though it’s so not my style I feel like she pulls it off 1000%, from the colour, to the style, to those details. It’s pretty and perfect.
Taraji P. Hensen is the new Sofia Vergara. I mean she’s starting to wear the same dress. It’s definitely wow, and old glamour… but I’d love to see something else next time. Maybe… Thandie Newton is a great example of a great dress but not so great hair and makeup. I feel like the dress is slightly edgy so if she had done a more classic hair and makeup it would’ve made the look 100% better. Irina Shayk looked fabulous and amazing. The dress is so simple in design and cut, but the fabric is stunning! Bradley Cooper on the other hand looks like shit. A black classic tux next time… maybe… Ah Emily Blunt is one of my faves. I love the dress, the details, the fabric, the colour, it’s perfection! Very delicate but strong somehow. Kristin Bell is a vision. True beauty. The dress is amazing, it’s like the classic evening dress. The color is so pretty and I love how she did the minimal thing and only wore a big bracelet. Love the detail on the dress too. Perfection.
Julia Roberts I liked her look. Great color combo for her, loved the design, the pants, the shoes, the hair. Very chic and very elegant. Oh my god. Be still my heart. Charlize Theron is perfection. beautiful, royal, statuesque, glamorous, classic, simple. The dress is amazing, her jewellery is amazing, she looks beautiful. LOVE! Lupita Nyongo, I feel like she sticks to pretty much the same silhouette, but I love it. The color of this dress is exquisite and I feel like it might be one of her best looks. I loved Claire Foy. Maybe some of you don’t agree, but I feel like except for the tiny wrinkles in her dress, the look is pretty old school decadent and elegant. Her hair and makeup are flawless and they do DO a lot of the work. Loved the color of the dress so much. Again another fave of mine, that y’all might not agree is MJ Rodriguez. I love the whole fluid, flowy, effortless, beautiful vibe. Really like the color or the dress and her hair. Oh my God Allison Janey I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. From that fab colour to the style the whole look is beautiful! Jessica Chastain looks so powerful and beautiful. it’s a very strong look but I’m loving it. Saoirse Ronan looks so hot and so elegant. One of my fave dresses. And Patricia Clarkson is by far slaying it. I mean… stunning!!!
Worst Dressed – 2019 Golden Globes
At the beginning of this post I really thought there were no bad dressers this year. Ah well… I was wrong. Now some of them I feel like they really blew it this year, while others… I just didn’t like.
Let’s start easy. It was Sandra Oh’s night, and while she did look great, I really thing they could’ve done much better dress and hair wise. I didn’t like the dress. from the waist up I feel like it’s all too loud and a mess. The hair… I’m not feeling it. Please convince me otherwise in the comments section below. Dominique Jackson‘s dress I initially liked, but then I got a very night-gown-ish vibe from it. Its pretty and she’s very beautiful but I can’t get past the night gown vibe. Okay… I’m practically singing my death sentence here, but Jamie Lee Curtis missed the best dressed list by a few inches. Or should I say makeup. I feel like if she had worn red lips the whole look would’ve been better. I get what she was trying to do, with the all white look… but it’s too washed out and ageing quite frankly. The dress however was amazing. Except for the too long sleeves.
Elsie Fisher!?! She doesn’t loo too happy herself. While Judy Greer looks way happier than she should for what she’s wearing. Rosamund Pike, no no no! I feel like she realised the dress was not too okay and she threw that blazer on. Either way I don’t like it. Caitriona Balfe for the love of God!!!! From her hair all the way down to her dress it’s so sad and unfortunate. I have never in my life seen such a dress.
Lucy Liu, Molly Sims, and Heidi Klum – its like all three of them decided to wear the same shit. The dresses are not too bad (well maybe except for Lucy’s), but they’re just not very (I can’t believe I’m saying this) age appropriate, or worthy for this event. Molly’s is like a great summer dress, and Heidi’s is art-school-project-pretty.
Penelope Cruz is always pretty much wearing black classic/heavy dresses, and this time there’s no exception, EXCEPT this time I don’t really like it. I don’t get the upper part of this dress. Kerri Russell’s dress I first liked, but then I thought the upper part was not too flattering. It’s too baggie, and makes her look a bit disproportionate. Other than that it’s nice. Julianne Moore and Laura Dern are not my fave this year. The first one is too structured and boxy, and the second is too the opposite.
Janelle Monae – what the hell?! I know it’s Chanel, but NO WAY Jose! Melissa McCarthy I did not like that dress at all. It looked ill fitted, cheap and I not too keen on the color either. Emma Stone and Anne Hathaway were a big disappointment, just cause they looked meh. I feel like I’ve seen Emma in this dress before, but this time she looks worse. And Anne… oh my. Too much, let’s just leave it at that.
Catherine Zeta Jones, Rachel Weisz, Nicole Kidman – I just didn’t like the dresses that much. Or maybe I expected more. Elizabeth Moss – what the hell. And Amber Heard is so beautiful, but that dress is not so much. Okay… and this is probably unfair, but it feels as if Halle Berry is doing the same dress over and over again. And the earrings look cheap. She is STUNNING!!!! and the dress is okay, but I just was expecting more.
Your turn now.
