The Golden Globes aired last night and the red carpet was looking rather…uninspired. I mean, I understand the economy’s shot, but I think that America was hoping the cathartic world of Hollywood would lift our spirits, stimulate our minds with a little glitz and glamour. The Hollywood Foreign Press apparently sent out a dress code memo requesting origami-inspired gowns or one-shoulder chiffon pieces for the women, and satin lapel tuxs for the men. A few ladies did, however, rise to the occasion, dawning fresh gowns and breathing life into an otherwise lackluster Golden Globes.
Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) was stunning in this mustard-seed Christian Lacroix Haute Couture gown – a beautiful breath of fresh air amongst all the pastel chiffon.
Maggie Gyllenhaal was the epitome of cool in this printed, one-shoulder Lanvin gown. The exposed zipper on the side was hot, bringing some much needed rock’n’roll edge!
In THE color of the season, plum, Rumer Willis actually outshined her mother in this belted Reem Acra number. Her red hair and fair complexion were the perfect accessories for a look that oozed “young Hollywood”.
Kate Beckinsale radiated white-hot glamour in this J. Mendel gown. She looks stunning. What else is there to say?
