Golden Globes Red Carpet Rundown

By  | 

Is it me or was this year’s Golden Globes telecast super boring? The most memorable moment was Lady Gaga brushing/busting Leonardo DiCaprio and it feels kinda mean-spirited to focus on that. Oh well, at least there is always FASHION to talk about!

With shades from deep to pale blue was the color of the night:

Ladies in Blue

Annie Guest, Jamie Lee Curtis, Veronica Ferres, Melissa McCarthy, Julianne Moore, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Viola Davis, Ana Delareguerra, Lily Tomlin

Ladies in Blue Part 2

Kate Winslet, Bryce Dallas Howard, Gina Rodriguez, Natalie Morales, Barbara Meier, Maura Tierney, Queen Latifah, Sarah Hay

Melissa McCarthy, Julianne Moore, Jenna Dewan Tatum and Viola Davis all look like Intergalactic Space Queens, and I want that movie immediately. Barbara Meir is almost literally dressed as Cinderella. And Sarah Hay is wearing one of two dresses I saw last night (the second is below, in pink) that appear to be made for Sansa Stark.

Next most popular color was white:

Ladies in White

Maria Menounos, Lily James, Alicia Vikander, Judith Light, Jane Fonda, Eva Longoria, Melissa Benoist, Jennifer Jason Leigh

Ladies in White Part 2

Saorise Ronan, Laverne Cox

Lady in White

Taraji P. Henson

I absolutely love the variety on display here! Judith Light is killing it in her tux. Melissa Benoist’s dress kinda looks like a bedspread but she’s cute. I’m not sure what Jane Fonda was thinking when she picked this look but hey she’s earned the right to do whatever the hell she wants and I can’t say she looks bad. Taraji P. Henson continues to dress like a superhero and I think Saorise Ronan is actually dressed as Princess Leia both of which I highly approve of.

Next up, various shades of red, orange and pink:

Ladies in Red

Zendaya Coleman, Felicity Huffman, Olivia Wilde, Bernadette Peters, Natalie Dormer, Emmy Rossum, Tara Lynne Barr, Jennifer Lawrence

Ladies in Orange

Angela Bassett, Amy Adams

Ladies in Pink

Kate Bosworth, Katy Perry, Leslie Mann, Cate Blanchett, Corinne Foxx, Rooney Mara

Corinne Foxx is wearing the other Sansa-inspired dress and Natalie Dormer would also look at home on the Game of Thrones set (though her dress more resembles Melisandre’s aesthetic than Margaery’s). Zendaya Coleman and Cate Blanchett are two of my favorite looks of the night.

Green is not a go-to red carpet color but these women tried it:

Ladies in Green

Carly Chaikin, Rachel Bloom, Jaimie Alexander, Jada Pinkett Smith, Maggie Gyllenghaal, Rachel McAdams

Props for the patterns on Jaimie Alexander, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Rachel McAdams and mega props for Jada Pinkett Smith’s wacky ode to the sea.

There are those who put the golden in the globes (among other metallics):

Ladies in Metallics

Portia Doubleday, Jane Wu, Malim Akerman, Regina King, Brie Larson, Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Eva Green, Kate Hudson

Straight up all these women are making a capitol S Statement. The first two are like suits of armor repurposed as awesome evening wear and you know I love Regina King’s CAPE.

Finally, the ladies in black:

Ladies in black

Sophia Bush, Kirsten Dunst, Lady Gaga, Emilia Clarke, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Taylor Schilling

Top three remind me of Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, and Marilyn Monroe. Emila Clarke is gothic victorian realness and I LOVE it. And someone get Taylor Schilling cast as General Zod’s daughter for me okay?

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett is my favorite and honestly, no one qualifies as worst dressed for me. What about you?
