Golden Globes 2017 – Best Dressed

Last night saw the start of Awards Season in Hollywood, with the awarding of the annual Golden Globe Awards which honour the best in film and television from the previous year. As always. the Golden Globes are all about the fashion, as well as being a pointer to who might win big at The Oscars next month.

I have to say that from a fashion point of view, the awards were a little disappointing. I was unimpressed with the likes of Nicole Kidman and Zoe Saldana, both reliable fashionista’s who failed to shine on the night. I also thought that this was a show that missed real fashion moments that usually come from the likes of Cate Blanchett, Angelina Jolie, Naomi Watts, JLo and Gwyneth Paltrow  – non of these ladies were in attendance.

Even amongst the dresses we did see, I was disappointed in general. I loved the colour and design of Jessica Chastain’s dress, but wished it wasn’t quite so ‘booby’ – a little more fabric would’ve totally nailed old Hollywood styling. I really liked SJP paying tribute to Carrie Fisher with her Leia-esque hair, and the dress was stunning, but I can’t think it would’ve been even more beautiful without the sleeves.  I’m still torn by Sienna Miller’s dress – was it cool and understated, or a little too ‘beachy and underdone?’ Best Actress Emma Stone looked beautiful in a sea of stars, but it was a little underwhelming if I’m honest.

So what did I love? Well, my favourite colour is yellow so I was loving the looks from Viola Davis, Maisie Williams and Reese Witherspoon. Special mention must go to the beautiful Natalie Portman, nominated for playing Jackie Kennedy and totally channeling that Camelot, White House style. Mandy Moore and Kristen Bell both wore black, plunging dresses with aplomb, they were just super stunning and hair and make-up was perfect.

Art Deco is my era of choice, so I love Drew Barrymore in her unusual white and silver dress. Naomie Harris flew the flag for Britain in a slinky metallic column dress, whilst there were princess moments for young stars Hailee Steinfeld and Lily Collins.

What was your favourite dress from this year’s awards?

Get the Celebrity look featuring Rita Ora, Lily Collins and Millie Mackintosh

The latest ‘get the look’ post has a bit of a best of British feel to it. It includes some celebrity looks from London Fashion Week, stars of daytime television who show just how stylish the High Street can be, and a diversity of footwear ranging from boots to trainers.

We have Rita Ora’s collaboration with Adidas, the ‘Pastel Pack’, a trainer and hi-top that come in deliciously girlie shades of pink and blue. Laura Whitmore and Downton’s Laura Carmichael show of their London Fashion Week style in Kilian Kerner and Topshop Unique respectively. I have added a link to track to Laura’s coat, but have also included some pieces from the Kilian Kerner range available at House of Fraser, as many of the pieces are reduced and so are fabulously priced.

Representing TV, we have some of the regular presenters from Loose Women, Jane Moore and Linda Robson, who have recently been sporting pieces from Topshop and Wallis. We also have breakfast presenters Charlotte Dawson and Laura Tobin , who have been wearing some of the new season pieces from M&Co.

Millie Mackintosh and Zara Martin are showing that Ugg style is much more than just furry boots, wearing cool, cowboy styles that look just fabulous with floral dresses. Lily Collins shows us why the kimono is showing no signs of disappearing, I love how she has styled her cool, longer version from Topshop with simple jeans and a tee.

Finally, we have the luminous Helen Mirren, who once again turns to one of her fave jewellery brands, Claudia Bradby, wearing an elegant pair of pearl and silver drop earrings that are just timeless.

Enjoy!
