Forget all my proclamations about hating January. I mean, yes, I hate the post- Christmas malaise, the cold weather, no Christmas decorations, the lack of money and all round depressive nature of the month, but I had totally forgot about award season, which, for someone who would like to spend every day in a ballgown, more diamonds than Harry Winston and Jimmy Choo glitter sandals, is by far the best time of the year.
The Golden Globes will take place on Sunday night, which kickstarts the frocks and the glamour of award season, but there have already been lots of smaller events taking place this week, which have been the perfect showcase for some truly gorgeous looks. The likes of Helen Mirren, Jessica Chastain, Brie Larson and the wonderful Cate Blanchett have already been setting the benchmark high with some really beautiful looks, that run a gamut from 1940s style elegance (Cate) to channeling Sharon Stone’s iconic 1990s mix and match styles, when she took a gap turtle neck and a long skirt and totally stole awards season (I’m thinking Helen is very much in that vibe in that stunning blue at Palm Springs.)
My favourite looks so far are Cate and Brie Larson, an Oscar contender who looks just beautiful in jade green, especially when teamed with simple hair and copper peep toe heels.
Do you have a favourite look so far? Will you be watching the Live from the Red Carpet on the E! Channel this Sunday?
