Golden Globes 21013 Recap

Here's bit of fashion junk food to get you through Friday.. I can't resist hashing over red carpet fashions can you? The Golden Globes are one of my favorites to watch. Despite a crazy week of school activities I'm getting this out to you, albeit a day late and a bit thrown together, ( I am having serious issues with my fonts staying uniform) but let's at it.. 


 I'm loving the non fussy right now. Ann Hathaway won me with her elegant and simple look. Anne is the modern day Audrey Hepburn to me in her Chanel worn plain and unadorned.


 In her coat at an after party. This girl has great taste.


 

Emily Blunt in Michael Kors was just fresh and pretty.


Kerry Washington was another favorite. Love her dress, hair, everything.





Sally Field looked beautiful. Love that she still looks like herself and not a scary plumped up version. 



Carla Gugino was fabulous. She shows how to dress over 40 that's neither frumpy nor too revealing.

 

Jennifer Garner brought it!  You go girl! I love that this is so her and not overly-styled.



Julianne Moore in Tom Ford...Gold and black accessories- swoon!



Jennifer Lawrence's gown embodied old school Dior. I liked that it was different. Strapless is really getting to become a bore...Everyone looks like they are off to the prom. This had a little edge.



 Jessica Chastain got mixed reviews, but I loved the old Hollywood glamour of this and her hair. Think Katherine Hepburn folks. She took a chance and the icy blue was gorgeous with her coloring.



Marion Cotillard. The color alone makes me love this modern dress. The straight hair back just worked with this so well.  



How great was this look on Kate Hudson? It was very California golden girl which is so her.



Loved Jessica Alba's dress color. It's a lot with the hair and huge necklace..Maybe her hair back or a simpler jewelry would have looked less expected more modern.



 George and Stacey Keibler.. She looked terrific. I like her natural look.  He just gets better with age. Damn men!



I don't care what anyone says about her, I adore Helena Bonham Carter's strict adherence to her crazy look. The addition of the Lulu Guinness lip clutch was perfect!



Amanda Seyfried was lovely and natural, if a bit bland. I would have thought a bright lip or a pop of color would prevent her from being a washout here.



Helen Mirren was looking totally hot and in amazing shape.



Rachel Weisz no doubt had the best date. The jury is out on this dress... Not sure I'm loving it and it was a bit long. And Mr Craig, please, this isn't a Bond movie.



I like that Nicole Ritchey went blue.

Taylor Swift's Donna Karan gown was stunning. The color was the prettiest plum. 


I'm not so sure about...





Julianna Margulies what can I say? It had a very bare back, but from the front and with the severe hair not so great.



Adele is one beautiful girl. Who dressed her in this? She is way too young to be wearing this matronly getup...Not a fan of the hair either.


 Lena Dunham looks stuck in a bad bridesmaid dress. The unfortunate reality about tattoos is that they just don't ever look nice with dressy clothes. 





Eva Longoria just looks too artificial and this whole ensemble just makes her look old....and dare I say desperate? :P




Wow, I don't know what to say about this. All too much really. I think J.Lo always nails it when she goes sleek. So not.

Jodie Foster looks so terrific, but girls with broad shoulders and shorter hair should not wear this neckline...It makes you look broader than you are. As one with broad shoulders, I know.  I love that he always wears Armani though. She could use a bit more length on the hair..




Dear Halle Berry, you don't need bare hips and skin at every event. We all know she has an amazing body..I would like to see her get a bit more chic and less on the prowl... The hair needs a change too. Hasn't she has that spiky look forever?  If she's not careful she'll start to look like those ladies of a certain age from the Chico's catalog. 



Alyssa Milano was possibly trying to channel the bright colors of Leslie Mann's citrus and turquoise look from last Oscars, but this was not flattering. I give her points for a cool clutch though.

Well, let's end on an upbeat note and take a glance at the best beauty..



Love Kerry's hair and soft makeup.



Nicole Kidman's new shorter hair looked great. I'll overlook the extreme botox.




Claire Danes had a bit more makeup on and I liked that she went a bit sexy after just having given birth one month ago.



Emily Blunt's soft makeup was flawless.


Michelle Dockery is so gorgeous..I didn't notice how pretty her brown eyes are on Downton Abbey.  Her messy bob is modern and flattering.

Okay let's hear what your take was...Who did you love or hate? 

And don't forget there's just a few days left to enter my contest to win either the Bobbi Brown or Bazaar book! You can do so by following this blog on the left, following on Pinterest or Facebook. Each one you do gives you another entry, so leave me a note on the comments of which you have done! I'll announce the two winners at the end of the weekend!

Good Luck!

  1. Kim - Love this!

    Kate Hudson and Helen Mirren's dresses are similar black with gold but both perfectly age appropriate makes them each look their best.

    Natural hair style seem to make the gal and the "look" pretty and comfortable.

    Why do stylists often choose looks that are interpretations of the actresses nominated role? (I hear it mentioned in fashion reviews.)

    Our one agreed exception Helena Bonham Carter - her personal look always closely resembles all of the characters she has played!

    1. I agree Linda. I think the natural look always is more flattering than some of these moire dramatic looks. It's funny, I never thought about the stylists reinterpreting their roles, but you are right, some do look that way..

  2. Loved your comments and I agreed with each and every one! Ann H. looked stunning. She has slimmed down (for the Dark Night) and with the hair cut, she's really got herself a whole new look. At first I wasn't sure I liked the shorter hair but I do think it was a good move for her.

    1. I felt the same with her short hair, but whichever way she has it now looks better or perhaps more flattering!
      Thanks Leslie!

  3. I agree with you Kim. I thought Kerry Washington had the whole package...loved it!

  4. I completely agree - Helen Mirren always rocks it, Michelle Dockery looked fantastic in her white & gold dress and I really like Nicole Ritchie's blue Naeem Khan dress. So pretty.

    I think Nicole Kidman should go back to red hair, sometimes the blond hair washes her out.

    Oh and I totally agree about Halle Berry - we'll never forget she was in Catwoman!! Meow!

    1. Oh my gosh, Michelle Dockery was just lovely. I didn't realize Nicole was so blonde. You are right, I think she looks better with red.

    1. Julianne always looks amazing. Can't believe she is over 50.
      Thanks for the comment Leigh! xx

    2. EAsyyy there Girlfriend! I don't know about Leigh (by the way one of the top 2 names I wanted for our now 16 year old) BUT, I am also over 50 and like to think I sometimes (with proper lead time and effort) look that good - still.

      xo :-)

    3. Linda, I guess 50 is the new 40 right? I like to think so since I'm only 2 years away... Besides, you look amazing too. Guess I shouldn't have said it like 50 was prehistoric or something! Thanks for setting me straight Linda! ;)

    4. Ha heee! No worries Kim. But staying up this late at OUR age is not going to make us any prettier! "Beauty Sleep" ya know.

      Cheers!

  7. Kerry Washington's hair is fabulous, I would love an easy cut like that, there's something quite seductive about it too - or maybe that's just her.

    1. I loved her hair, but of course she has a gorgeous face. Tabitha, I bet you'd be pretty with that cut. You have lovely hair and I actually think it always looks better on brunettes!

  8. Kim your humor shines through in this post and I am still laughing. I so agree with your running commentaries~you nailed it. Of course, George Clooney is there so it's an unfair advantage as to who my favorite is (you are so right-damn men for getting better as they age!). So many great looks and Emily Blunt in that Michael Kors was a home run for me!
    xx, Heather

  9. Sorry I'm a bit late getting in on this! Love dishing about celebrity looks! I've never seen Claire Danes look so hot! Maybe I should have a baby ... (JOKING!). Hmm ... what did you think of Lucy Liu? I liked it, but she got mixed reviews. Loved Jennifer Lawrence. Oh, and men aren't the only ones getting better with age. Helen Mirren ... what a hottie! OXOX
