We expected old Hollywood glamour, a parade of frothy Marchesas and sequinned Elie Saabs but what we got instead were minimal looks, colour blocked pieces and nothing which made an impact on the red carpet at Golden Globes 2014. Is glamour out of style this season?
There were exceptions like Naomi Watts, who wore a glittery Tom Ford halter with subtle sheer cutouts on the bodice and Michelle Dockery who sparkled in a strapless Oscar de la Renta gown shrouded in dazzling silver beading, with a high-low hemline but most looks seemed far from the in-your-face va va voom. Cate Blanchett dazzled in a sheer lacey Armani gown but when does she ever get it wrong? Jennifer Lawrence most predictably wore Dior (the house she represents) but the gown seemed feeble though we loved her cropped hair and make-up. Amy Adams stood out in a two-tone red halter with a train and a plunging neckline. The lesser said about Jessica Chastain’s horror-movie hair-do the better! Sofia Vergara actually said that she was carrying a tent and we can’t agree more. It was actually a Zac Posen tent for the lack of a better phrase.
Sandra Bullock’s deep-V pink-black-and-blue Prabal Gurung number was again disappointing.
Babe, we love colour blocking while browsing the street style images on the Internet not on the red carpet! Among men the winner Matthew McConaughey out-tuxed everyone else in a velvet tuxedo while most men stuck to the boring black tux ho hum.
