Oscars Red Carpet 2017

Posted on

The Award season just went by and by the time it culminates at Oscars, one pretty much has a good idea of how celebrities are going to dress and the style they would choose to follow. Oscars brought in drama but a lot of it was rather littered with conventional choices. However a lot of actresses did manage to turn heads for all the right reasons on the red carpet.

Cannes 2015 : Splashes and Ripples on Red Carpet

Posted on Updated on

Untitled-1Primarily a film festival, and it should be respected as such, Cannes in the past few years has notoriously become one of the highlight in the annual calendar due to its glitzy red carpet. Hwever, Cannes this time around was rather a less dramatic affair…. what is with red carpet events this year… however regular fashionistas gave us moments that were definitely worth watching what they would wear next on the red carpet. From Sonam Kapoor to Julianne Moore… even Katrina Kaif made her debut at the red carpet at this edition of Cannes. There were some fun brilliant moments and some missteps but our fashionistas did their best and rocked every thing they donned…. Read the rest of this entry »

Oscars 2015 – Red Carpet

Posted on Updated on

It was rather surprisingly a lackluster affair at the Oscars this year. Women dressed way better at the Globes. While Jessica Chastain went a good jewel tone but the sad sash with embellished bodice maternity look and her fiery hair into tamed into straight school girl gone stepford housewife hair, What happened to you between Globes and Oscars??? Attempting a miss goody two shoes look???  Best Actress winner Julianne Moore disappointed in something that ‘Karl made for her’…. Woman … you should have stuck to Givenchy or Tom Ford… they gave you such memorable moments at Globes and SAG… the squashed sequined flowers rows was rather meh!! Almost the worst gown ever by a best actress winner….Even Cate Blanchette was just hanging around the outskirts looking bored and barely bringing in her red carpet game.

Jared Leto’s outfit was copied by the Lego singers and it wasn’t as awesome on them. Scarlet Johansson and Lupita Nyongo were in competition with each other for the role of the new sea witch… someone might as well cast them as two bad ass sea witches fighting off each other…who needs Ariel, its Sea Poison Ivy versus the Oyster Queen of Pearls (Lupita’s Vanity Fair Party Calvin Klein look was flawless) . Laura Dern‘s gown as much fun as it was, she did not need to ruin the whole look by that styling going all Game of Thrones and making it go all armoury.. Felicity Jones, almost had a moment…her Globes one still by far the best look for her this award season. Zoe Saldana, a little personality wouldn’t hurt, you had such a good gown with subtle graphic details. And what to say about Gwenyth Paltrow… why is she even invited to Oscars anymore… Darling they don’t hand out awards to trying-to-look-like-when-i- won.

Here are my picks for the best dressed women of the night.

 

JENNIFER HUDSON
After Naomi Watts at Globes, it was Jennifer Hudson’s turn to try on the cheery yellow color on the red carpet. The butter yellow gown from the Romona Keveza Spring 2015 collection with half peplum and tiny accent belt was classic chic, while the color adds a splash of fun to the simple silhouette. The bold emerald and diamond earrings and cocktail ring are a lovely accent, perfectly styling off the gown. Paired with Jimmy Choo ‘Minnie’ sandals she rounded off the look. Jennifer’s sleek hair, flawless skin and subtle makeup complete the look. She changed up with another smashing look with a black velvet gown, dangling earrings and deep magenta lips was as perfect for the night as the red carpet look. From cheery to sultry, this chic rocked it all.

 

JENNIFER LOPEZ
The usual sultry siren on the red carpet went for a much more prettier and princessy moment for her big night at the Oscars. The Layers of romantic nude-hued tulle were speckled with monochromatic beading from the deep cut neckline, dripping all the way past the waistline. The look was styled to chicest perfection via the most slim belt, a matching clutch by Salvatore Ferragamo and simple diamond drop earrings. What was a masterstroke was the high ponytail that added the perfect contrasting playful element, balancing out the high drama dress. A pink pout and she was the princess of the night.

 

EMMA STONE
After Jessica Chastain’s unusual bronze choice at the Globes, it was Emma’s chartreuse pick made for the unusual perfect red carpet moment this Oscar season. The custom long-sleeved Elie Saab couture gown with illusion detailing, an open-back and chartreuse beading worked perfectly for the her skin tone accented off with her hair. Christian Louboutin ‘Gardnera’ sandals compliment the gown perfectly. The flawless look was finished with her wavy side swept bob and deeply pigmented coral matte lips were perfect accent and fun take on the red carpet.

 

ROSAMUND PIKE
If there was one dress that said ‘ delivered a baby and the bitch is back baby’, it had to be Rosamund’s Oscar red carpet moment.  The crimson Givenchy Couture number created a visual spark on the red carpet with its dimensional, intricate embroidery sexily cinched in with a visible corset. What is intriguing about this look is its in sync with her nominated character as well as despite being embroidered overall, it does not overwhelm her. Finishing her sassy red carpet look, in minimal fashion—dainty Lorraine Schwartz earrings, alongside a swept-back bun and barely-there rose-tinged makeup were all she needed.

 

MARGOT ROBBIE
Chanelling her inner sultry boudoir, starlet Margot Robbie looked smoldering in Saint Laurent on the red carpet. Saint Laurent is becoming the go to designer for the young guns providing edgy elegant outlook. The subtly sexy Saint Laurent gown with a plunging neckline and sheer sleeves channeled her 70’s glam actress look. The Van Cleef & Arpels necklace featuring rows of diamonds, sapphires and a dramatic tassel was a perfect accent to the black draped gown. Styling the look to a T, flawless skin, a matte red lip, gorgeous brows and a slick blonde bob made her one of the best dressed ones.

 

NAOMI WATTS
Naomi Watts is one actress who is always noted for her sartorial choices on the red carpet. Decked in Armani Prive, the black, white and grey brick like embellished brick pattern was fresh in Naomi-esque manner. With halter neckline that had delicate straps and the black, beaded cutout along the sides of the gown was a modern and chic take on the cutout trend. Styling with oversized inky-blue and diamond drop earrings and a black Rauwolf clutch. Soft waves and a deep berry lip topped off the vampy look to perfection.

 

ANNA KENDRICK
The fierce Anna Kendrick wore a custom Thakoon coral gown with a keyhole accent and diamond collar. The color and drape of the gown offered an elegant look. The blush of her cheeks and lips are the perfect with her gown, and the slightly smokey eyes are a dream compliment. The hair is twisted classic updo with a slight swept. Diamond earrings and a cocktail ring continued the classic glamour theme.

 

SPECIAL MENTION: LADY GAGA

Lady gaga might have looked her usual self on the red carpet, it was her performance look that won me over. What I always love about GAGA is she looks her best when she is at her neutral best and this was THE look. With a white gown, grey hair and neutral look, this was probably her best look for me. It’s natural, fresh and she CAN sing.

Golden Globes 2015 – Red Carpet

Posted on Updated on

While this time around Globes was a lackluster affair with not enough Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in their last year of hosting, there were some fun surprises and the red carpet veterans bringing out their A game on the red carpet.

JENNIFER LOPEZ
The one always dressed to the nines, J.Lo turned up in a sheer metallic Zuhair Murad cape Kaftan number making sure all eyes were on her. The Latina beauty broke the rules of not to do decollete and legs together and yet look smoking hot on the red carpet. The plunging bold number was right up the diva’s alley staying true to her glam. She accessorized with a coordinating clutch, platinum Stuart Weitzman sandals and mega danglers. Her hair had the perfect amount of volume with her bombshell waves styled to perfection and on point smoky eye makeup made her for one sizzling red carpet DIVA.

JESSICA CHASTAIN
Does this woman ever have a misstep on the red carpet? While the plunging pleated and draped silhouette was nothing new, it was Chastain who breathed life and how she wore the liquid Versace bronze number to perfection. Unusual, unpredictable and definitely delectable, the bronze played a perfect contrast against her red locks which were styled as an ode to old Hollywood glamour.  Whoever knew this color could be pulled off at the red carpet and with that much perfection. With dangling diamonds and a silver cuff watch was all she needed to finish off this smashing outing on the red carpet.

EMMA STONE
Trust Miss Stone to stir things up at the red carpet. The one to ditch the gown and going the pantsuit route, the BIG EYES painting on display (you need to see the award show to understand that joke), just killed it in that Lanvin number. Birdman’ star and Best Supporting Actress nominee’s ensemble was one of the unexpected looks of the night. With a heavily bejeweled bodice, tailored pants and complete with a statement bow and train in the back—the perfect fusion of feminine and masculine styling. Keeping her jewellery to minimum with midi rings, she styled her her flame-red, wavy bob and magenta lip color.

KATE HUDSON
Defining fierce in every way possible, Kate hudson’s Atelier Versace gown was the perfect balance between red carpet and vampy. The undeniably sexy gown with the cutouts and sparkle stripes was a risque but gives the gown an enviable silhouette which the gurl works the damn hell out of. Leaving just enough to imagination, the plunging number with a killer bod as Hudson’s was one of the best of the night. She finished off the look with a twisted bun, Forevermark simple drop earring and sleek clutch. No fuss or drama! this bitch owned the red carpet like nobody’s business.

KATE BECKINSALE
The second Kate of the night who was a vision in a nude grey was Kate Beckinsale in her Elie Saab number. With a cross between a grecian dress (complete with that flawless updo) and sequined number, the british actress looked radiant in the gown. She added drama with her Salvatore Ferragamo heels and Bulgari jewels, the chandelier chain earrings and a diamond bracelet. A cute box clutch finished things off. It was however her lip color that was just chic. Her nude pink pout was the perfect choice to top the look off (a break from the oxbloods..phew!). Effortlessly chic.

REESE WITHERSPOON
A sighting after quite a while at the awards season, Reese Witherspoon was back in a silver number and how. The glitzy column number from Calvin Klein collection fit her like a dream with her locks in a side swept fashion. The Wild actress was bang on with the metallic trend of the night in this sleek look that was polished and meant business. Finishing off with her simple makeup, dainty earrings and one simple cuff, she cut a sophisticated picture.

GINA RODRIGUEZ
The shocking winner of the night, the Jane of television, Gina Rodriguez took more than the top honors at the globes. The actress was a perfect minimal vision in black gown with fringe details at the bottom. The strapless Badgely Mishka number highlighted the actress’s curves in the best possible silhouette making her look comfortable on the red carpet. With her hair in soft waves and white Chopard drop earrings, Miss Rodriguez aced it at her debut globe outing and hit all the right notes. Simple and classic with just enough twist.

THE MEN

EDDIE REDMAYNE
The Best Actor Nominee and Winner of the night, Eddie Redmayne cut his honeymoon short to turn up on the red carpet. Sort of a regular on my lists whenever he makes an appearance, the charming actor turned up as in a black gucci suit with a velvet jacket. At a black tie event, velvet usually gives me the creeps and ‘errr…’ moments since it is not everyone’s cup of tea to pull it off. However Mr. Redmayne had no such problems. Trudging along effortlessly, the british actor looked dapper and chic as usual with a pinstripe detailing down the side of his pants. Opting for a bowtie and patent leather shoes, he paired his suit with a crisp white shirt and a white pocket square. Definitely knows how to exercise control .

LAWRENCE ZARIAN
When fashion guru like Lawrence Zarian is set to take the red carpet, you anticipate and sit up to take notice of what he is going to turn up in. Playing off the dapper geek card, Mr Zarian turned up in a vintage deep purple tux. Letting the color do all the talking, the guy kept the rest of the look simple with a crisp white hugo boss shirt, John Varvatos boots and slim tie in a trinity knot (yes it wasn’t just regular old knot) . Adding the quirk with his nerdy Sama Eyewear specs, he had a slight stubble that added the right amount of debonair air to the whole look.

MATT BOMER
The guy looks photoshopped even on red carpet…lol.. The actor ringing in the award for his best supporting actor gong for The Normal Heart, was sleek and pretty much blew the competition in how to look polished on red carpet. Appearing in Ralph Lauren Black Label, the actor in the blue suit with a charcoal collar stood out for his choice of color and his slick styling. The shawl collar suit is not always easy to pull off since it is considered the most casual in the suit family, but credit to Mr. Bomer for pulling it off how he did. Slick side parted hair, a matching bowtie and a thin reveal of the pocket square, coupled with black shoes rounded off his look. Gentlemen!! that is how you do it.

DOMINIC WEST
One of my favorite actors this season, he was definitely the one I was rooting for this award season. Dominic West who was nominated for his AFFAIR (yea he was!! :P) turned up pretty polished on the red carpet in a classic tux and bowtie. What has always been interesting is how he manages to keep his wavy hair side parted with a certain flick for a formal look. With the slight triangle to his pocket square (it is really in the details for men at an event like this!!) and his gold cufflinks, the man did manage to clean up .. and clean up well.

GEORGE CLOONEY
Come on! lets face it… he looks good in everything.. even when he wears his wedding Armani tux to the globes. Ladies!! you may want him but Amal has him 😛 Keep Drooling!!

Have you MET charles james?

Posted on Updated on

Met Gala 2014 exhibition titled ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ had the classic theme of ‘white tie and decorations’. Since women usually do tend to make an effort by incorporating the designer’s style into their wardrobe, it was men who were thrown in a toss to get ready for the big night. The classic theme had its fair share of rebels and those who went all out at the theme whole heartedly. Many designers pushed envelopes in their own styles while being inspired by the construction master in whose honor the whole exhibition was taking place. Others went very off key but its fun to see how the themes are interpreted. My picks this year (in random order):

10270312_758628157515606_7783477443119806055_n Zac Posen and Dita von Teese in a dress by the designer. a Zac Posen gown and carried a clutch by Roger Vivier.
The diva DITA VON TEESE chose the designer who has always been inspired by Charles James and known for his impeccably constructed gowns. Zac Posen had Dita Von Teese as his muse in a blush mermaid petal gown with red details merging into the red carpet. The detail being similar to that of James, Zac Posen paid homage to the construction master in his own way. Accenting it off with red details, including the red Roger Vivier clutch,  and those waves, the burlesque dancer was quite the bewitching sight on the red carpet. Glamorous, thematic, experimetal, she ticked all the boxes.

693-master-1024-v1 Dior Couture gown with a tuxedo jacket, Jimmy Choo sandals and Fred Leighton jewellery.
Charlize Theron‘s successful run continued at the red carpet of MET. The woman has been consistently delivering one after the other good looks that are chic and MET night was no different. The Dior gown with criss cross black and white details on the side fit her like a glove. The modern take on ‘American’ elite eveningwear, the gown was perfect for the occassion while referencing James. The master stroke was the tuxedo jacket that brings in the unexpected element of the male theme into womenswear. It was hip, chic and she styled her in-between length brilliantly showing off her Fred Leighton jewels. She finished it off with jimmy choo sandals.

kristen-wiig-vogue-6may14-pa_b wang
As a designer pushing the boundaries, in an aesthetic manner, is as important. That is precisely what Alexander Wang did representing Balenciaga on the red carpet with muse Kristen Wigg (woohhooo!! wat an unexpected… i almost expected Carey Mulligan). The ensemble that felt more Wang than Balenciaga, was a high-low hem black top with black pants. What was fun was Wang through his minimally chic n uber modern constructional sensibilities paid respect to Charles james in his own way. The top was immaculately constructed and while witholding the shape, it felt like someone had sliced through a ball gown. The slick back hair and smoky eyes gave miss wigg a polished and edgy look, far removed from her comic demeanor.. Love

karolina-kurkova-vogue-6may14-pa_b Karolína Kurková in Marchesa.
Blowing everyone out of water was model Karolina Kurkova in a blue Marchesa gown. The impeccably constructed gown followed the theme to a T with classic American 50’s flair with a modern twist to it. Featuring painted flowers with some of them going 3d, the layered gown with its petal shapes took floral inspiration from James.. It could have easily drowned miss Kurkova, but the supermodel shows you why she is one of the best in the business. Accessorizing with just the neck piece, this was poetic construction.

Calvin Klein Collection. 749-master-1024-v2
Bringing high street to high fashion was Anne Hathaway in Calvin Klein. The crop top has made quite the appearance in the high street circles and bring that trend with her A game without any doubts was Miss Hathaway in a two piece column ensemble in red at the MET gala. The crop top bared just enough midriff without it being too much. She played up tonal color block with ruby red shoes and a hexagon ruby red clutch. She finished off with her dark pixie hair side swept and dangling earrings perfectly framing her face. Delicate and fierce at the same time.

chanell vintage Ferre and Chanel respectively - from Lily et Cie in LA.
Olsen twins, one in vintage Chanel, other in military inspired vintage Ferre, cut quite the modern picture on the red carpet. Androgynous in their approach of gowns, both the sisters had pulled back their hair for some serious fashion to the red carpet. In their gowns they looked smart, chic, no nonsense young women. The young entrepreneurs each one accessorized it minimally but differently. While one had a neckpiece with her wide collar pinstripe Chanel gown, other one had just pearl earrings with her gown.

prabal gurung hailee-steinfeld-vogue-6may14-pa_b
Hailee Steinfeld literally grew this night and how!! In a Prabal Gurung black and white gown, the young starlet looked all grown up woman from the last time I saw her in Marchesa at Oscars. Prabal Gurung with his gown spun a young modern take on the gown, while paying homage to the designer in exhibition. The racer back top part combined with the whole skirt with high low hem tease to show off her shoes was a brilliant move. Choosing black and white, his muse worked that gown hitting the ball out the park every minute. With her hair, middle parted and in a chignon she finished the look with Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery. It was young, hip, sporty and classic all at the same time.

Maggie+Q+Red+Carpet+Arrivals+Met+Gala+Part+9QIFHZ_GoKYl rs_634x1024-140505165346-634.maggie-Q-met-gala.ls.5514 ???????????????????????????
maggie-q-metgala Maggie Q in Zac Posen.
Zac Posen was quite the popular designer apart from Oscar dela Renta on the Red Carpet, possibly because of his constructions hitting quite close to Charles James. Maggie Q was no different opting for the gown from the young designer. What made Maggie Q stand out was the choice of her gown, along with the way she carried it lending a certain aristocratic air to the whole look. The black gown that featured extensions around hip, that extended downward, was styled minimally with a severe parted hair bun, smoky eyes and minimal jewels. Full points to nailing the look.

Sarah-Jessica-Parker-Oscar-de-la-Renta-2014-Met-Gala-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-5 i.2.sarah-jessica-parker-met-gala
The co-chair herself,Sarah Jessica Parker graced the occasion in an Oscar dela Renta gown, complete with gloves and an updo for the night. The designer took a leaf from Charles James book and recreated the whole look, however addeded in a checkered back panel with his signature, lending a contemporary light hearted take on the look. The petal gown in ivory and black was as classy evening wear as it would go. I love how Miss Parker goes all the way into the theme every year and comes out trumps without taking herself too seriously. The double beehive with flowers completed the whole look.

zoe-saldana-michael-kors-vogue-6may14-pa_b_592x888 Zoe Saldana in Michael Kors and Michael Kors. vs
j mendel anna-kendrick-vogue-6may14-pa_b
Was literally torn between Zoe Saldana and Anna Kendrick for this last spot, but then again, who’s gonna kill me for including both.. no one.  Marc Jacob’s date Zoe Saldana made a statement with a black and white halter with a plunging neckline. The lower part of the gown flared into a controlled bubble which could have gone either way but thanks to the designer it doesn’t. Credit to Ms Saldana for keeping the makeup contemporary without needing a pop of color. The berry lips and bronzed makeup were minimally perfect. Anna Kendrick on the other hand in J. Mendel cut the pretty constructed picture in a black and white gown with a cut out. Not as dramatic as others, but the gown with its slick construction of bustier with a peek a boo of the mid riff was just enough for her to score major points going the modern classic way. Accessorizing with just diamond studs and side parted hair, this woman definitely turned heads that night.

THE MEN
Usually at MET the women tend to follow the theme set by the exhibition but this time around we did see some rebels. However the theme for the red carpet set by Anna Wintour set many men out there in a tizzy with WHITE TIE & DECORATIONS. Stepping up their game, the men did not disappoint.

Bradley Cooper in Tom Ford. bradley-cooper-vogue-6may14-pa_b_592x888
Wearing Tom Ford to the gala, Bradley Cooper followed the theme literally to the T. He had the Tailed coat, the white tie and vest, tailored pants… and women couldn’t get enough of him. He’s forgiven for the onyx, but would have preferred a much more polished look but its maybe his next movie’s look. Finished it off with white pocket square.

Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe
The guy just cannot look bad. The ex-model/actor Eddie Redmayne was another one looking dapper in a Burberry tuxedo.  The Burberry loyalist was accompanied by his girlfriend Hannah.

Todd Spiewak and Jim Parsons brooke brotheres
Even though his partner did not go the route, Jim Parsons went the whole way in his tux by Brooke Brothers. The white on white bowtie with shirt and vest and the tailcoat was complete in sync with the theme. What was fun was the floral lapel pin that both sported. Cute and quirtky.

tom-ford-benedict-cumberbatch-vogue-6may14-pa_b
Let’s just not even… Hawtness in a shot. Tom Ford in tom ford and Benedict Cumberbatch in Ralph Lauren.

NOTEABLE MENTIONS

Golden Globes – red carpet hits and misses

Posted on Updated on

The award season is upon us and kicking it up with Golden globes, I was not at all disappointed after the boring emmys. Heres a lowdown of who I thought who scored and who missed out on the oppurtunity to dress up

Lupita Nyong’o: Deciding to go natural with her locks, Lupita aces in the razor cut quiff hair. Keeping the makeup natural, she hits a home run with that Ralph Lauren off shoulder cape gown that pretty much makes us forget Tom Ford on Gwyneth Paltrow. The Kenyan raised actress looked effortlessly glam in a red column that fell off her shoulders with a 6os style cape flaring behind her. The look was all about clean lines and silhouette and she succeeded in bringing that forward. Kicking off award season, she is one to look out for. Finishing off the look with minimal jewellery and dyed-to-match shoes, minimal makeup on that flawless skin, she topped it off with a perfect smile.
article-2539488-1A9AC79900000578-551_634x919

Olivia Wilde: Who says moms need to look matronly and flowy to hide those curves on the red carpet. Take a cue from Olivia Wilde in that bewitching green (reminded me of Florence Welch at Met Ball). The Gucci OTT beaded gown could have gown either way but is downplayed by the color and good fit wherein she is not afraid to hide her belly and rather flaunted the shape. The ombre hair (though out of trend) somehow the color just works with that dark green offsetting it perfectly.
article-2538349-1A9B166B00000578-66_306x898 article-2538349-1A9B059900000578-610_634x861 article-2538349-1A9B224D00000578-198_306x898

Margot Robbie: The young starlet of wolf of wall street went the risque route of doing the both i.e. deep neckline and high slit both in one dress but managed to come out with flying colors with her classic styling. Showing off her flawless skin in the Gucci gown, Margot kept it chic in a simple sweet bun with minimal jewels (Van Cleef & Arpels “Snowflake” earrings and ring) letting the gown shine. The clean, dewy makeup kept her glowing on the red carpet making her one of the best dressed of the night.

Amy Adams: The American Hustle actress in the deep cut Valentino made an appearance in one of the popular colors of the night, RED. Not a color that you associate with the demure Adams, but she works her American Hustle inspired gown that was an unexpected combo of merlot and tomato red working together. The plunging neckline partly works also because Adam’s petite frame lets her experiment with that kind of bold silhouette. The best actress in comedy or musical winner (she was long overdue now) nailed it with a braided updo and a diamond pendant working that red on the red carpet.
rs_634x1024-140112161004-634.amy-adams-golden-globes.ls.111214_copy

Cate Blanchette: The best actress drama winner, Cate might be on an award sweep this season. Cutting a perfect picture of old world Hollywood drama in an Armani Prive gown, Cate was definitely one of the best dressed of the night. The black lace gown with nude overlay was a perfect flare with a high neck, an open back and cap sleeves covered with petals of lace. The skirt is a layered gauze, dotted with shimmery black Swarovski crystals. It’s sheer and sultry but perfectly measured. The woman likes to take certain risks without being too safe and that is what she did with her dress. The nude shade of red, the perfectly styled faux bob and Chopard diamond earrings from the label’s Green Carpet Collection ( beautiful 11-carat, marquise-cut white diamonds) finished off her look

Emma Watson: The young brit rebel, Emma watson had a backless surprise as she strolled down the red carpet. The 23 year old starlet proved to be a red carpet maverick by breaking the major rule of award season red carpet…separates. While on the front her ribbon bow tied gown looked demure but as the front slit came into play and she turned around to reveal the back wherein the gown was backless all the way down and a pair of dark satin pants. The fashion forward dress from Dior (a jennifer lawrence territory) was definitely a game changer and one of the most talked about on the red carpet as to how risque was it for the ceremony. Her blue Roger Vivier Ergo Sexy pumps said that this was a lady in command. The hair and makeup was kept to a no-fuss minimum with pulled back mane and two wisps of hair. She rounded off the look with Edie Parker bag and much coveted Mise en Dior pearl earring. In just one lobe, naturally.

Sofia Vergara/Emma Roberts: Both the ladies did black gowns and accented them off with turquoise jewellery. While Vergara wore a voluminous Zac Posen gown, with possibly the biggest flare and ruffles of the night, the strapless gown showed off her curves brilliantly. What was more enchanting was she was in total control and wore the gown with equal panache rather than letting it over shadow her. Accenting it off with a 60s style chunky turquoise necklace, she finished it off with her usual swept hair. Emma roberts on the other hand looked way past her years but cut an elegant picture in her black Lanvin gown with an interesting wide neck wavy neckline and how it fell on her body. She kept the simple clean vibe by carrying off minimum makeup but at the end reminding her that she is just a young one having some fun, added in the pop of turquoise earrings.

WORST LOOKS

Sandra Bullock: Man oh Man!! why would you wear that. While I like Prabal gurung to a certain capacity, this in my wildest dreams wouldn’t have been a pick for the red carpet. While the silk is as is difficult since it crumples alot and needs to be steamed, the colors too didn’t help the cause much. While Miss Bullock tried to salvage the look through her effortless natural and fun makeup, the dress left a lot to be desired by this red carpet veteran. What happened Sandra!! here is to hoping that it was just a minor hiccup and she’ll be back.
sandra-bullock-2014-golden-globe-awards-red-carpet_1

Jennifer Lawrence: Possibly the most made fun of dress this award season!! yet… (but j.law is probably gonna laugh it off and take it in her stride and that is what we love about her), J. Law’s Dior was wrong on many counts. Confused between a gothic bride and sheets wrapped around with ribbons at odd placements on her frame, J.Law sort of disappointed in her this outing, after a series of brilliant appearances while promoting her movie, this one turned out to be a dud!! and lets face it, a gown that you can create out of wrapping around a duvet (you have to see the pictures people have posted) is not the best pick of the lot
rs_634x1024-140112180743-634.jennifer-lawrence-winner-golden-globes-2014 jennifer-lawrence-2014-golden-globes

Tina Fey: While it was good to see print on red carpet, unlike her co-host Amy poehler, who was sleek and chic on the red carpet, Fey didnt fare so well. The extra flare, the bumped up hair with half let loose hair with that strapless number made her look a bit dated on the red carpet. The Carolina Herrera gown did not do much for the mistress of ceremonies and rather felt like a lackluster last minute attempt. While she donned some pretty interesting gowns during the show, the red carpet one took a backseat.
TinaFeyJM1

Drew Barrymore: Being preggers is no excuse to dress up like what Barrymore did. Possibly a page from Olivia Wilde’s style diaries would have helped, but for the night, Barrymore looked plain simple awful. The while the high low hemline was interesting, the print and the embellishment and the color made her look like a giant cupcake walking down the red carpet. Drew Barrymore, who is expecting her second child, was all natural glow but the Monique Lhuillier number was just too loud for the ceremony. We have had many a pregnant ladies on the red carpet, but Drew!! what happened gurl!
article-2538349-1A9B240900000578-314_634x872

Paula Patton: What she made up in make up, she more than missed the mark on the red carpet. Paula Patton in the big ruffled dress on one side was quite an oddity in ivory on the red carpet. A tricky silhouette t pull off, which literally devours her. Not the Vera farmiga kind where you make the ruffles work, she had her jewellery and makeup bang on but her pick for the dress of the night left much to be desired
