Awards season started properly last night with the Golden Globes, which saw all the beautiful people out in force on the red carpet. The Golden Globes is always a seriously glamorous night, second only to the Oscars in terms of importance and star power, so, as to be expected, there were some seriously glamorous looks to be seen on the red carpet, with some colour and texture trends pointing the way to what we may see at the Oscars and Bafta’s.
It has to be said, there were some underwhelming looks. I hated the 1970s bridesmaid dress worn by the usually wonderful Kiera Knightley (I’m blaming pregnancy hormones for that one.), whilst Lena Dunham did her usual trick of picking a great colour, but a bad dress. I was really disappointed with Rosamund Pike’s Vera Wang dress, which seemed to want to let everything hang out, whilst I think that Amy Adams needs a much stronger colour to really stand out on the red carpet.
But there were also looks to love and swoon over. Jessica Chastain channelled Marilyn and Rita Hayworth in Versace, whilst my favourite yellow was a triumph, especially when teamed with green a la Leslie Mann. I also adored the metallic silver trend, most noticeably when worn by rising star Dakota Johnson, and award winner Julianne Moore.
Did you have a favourite dress from the night?

And then there was Amal…and Lupita
