I am so excited the new year is here! 2019 was a rough year and I'm so glad to have it behind me. I'm back to blogging with my best dressed picks from the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards!
I love seeing Helen Mirren on the red carpet! She always looks stylish and comfortable while having a blast and wearing this burgundy Dior gown was no different. This look proves that off the shoulder styles can look great at any age. The 3/4 length sleeve keeps the style from looking too formal and the contrasting underskirt was a fun reveal when she twirled.
Last, but not least my favorite look is Joey King in this amazing dress by Iris Van Herpen. I love the optical illusion created by the print of the fabric and the shape of the dress. What's even trickier is the curvature of the lines beginning at the waist and extending down into the hips that create a flattering silhouette verses a bulky one. I also love the unique sleeve/cape piece as well.
There were so many fantastic gowns at the SAG Awards that I can't choose a favorite! I honestly, equally love ALL of these picks!
Julia Garner wore this gorgeous aquamarine gown by Zac Posen. I love the scattered flower design on the fabric to add texture and the Victorian-esque silhouette. It's both elegant for the awards show and chic for this up and coming actress.
Sandra Oh picked up a SAG Award for her work in Killing Eve while wearing the Ophelia gown by Jenny Packham. I love the combination of fabrics, the embellished main dress with the crepe drape that cascades into an attached train. It's very elegant and unique.
This Ellie Saab gown worn by Michelle Yeoh combines two of my favorite designs - a feather skirt and jeweled bodice! This sophisticated gown is only enhanced by Ms. Yeoh's grace.
Susan Kelechi Watson was a ray of sunshine in this fun and flirty Christian Siriano gown. Not everyone can pull off yellow, but Ms. Watson does it beautifully. I love the second photo, showing just how fresh this dress was in a sea of black suits and backdrops.
I love love LOVE this white Dior couture gown worn by Lady Gaga! The fabric color and floaty skirt are angelic while the attached shorts and deep v frayed neckline are edgy - very Gaga!
Laverne Cox dazzled in this stunning crimson Zac Posen gown! I love the silouette with the drapey sleeve. I think I need to incorporate this sleeve in my own creations! The attached necklace is a lovely surprise in the back with the sleeves coming to a knot and creating a train. Beautiful pattern design!!
While some critics compared this Michael Kors gown to female anatomy I think it's fantastic! Emily Blunt is so lovely and graceful she could rock a paper bag to an awards show, but I love the uniqueness of this dress. I've never seen a ruffle like this on an evening gown and I love the unexpected open back.
Shangela wore my favorite Christian Siriano look of all time! All of the rows and rows of ombre ruffles are just gorgeous! I can't imagine the work that went into this gown, but it was definitely worth it!
While pink was a popular color choice at this year's SAG Awards, all the gowns were so unique like this fabulous Oscar de la Renta frock worn by Gemma Chan. The Crazy Rich Asians actress shared on her instagram page that it took 100 hours of handstitching and 30 yards of silk to create this gown AND it went from sketch to red carpet in less than a week! Kudos to the entire team! I love the feather 'look' and it's even more amazing when it's created by something other than actual feathers.
And the feathers just keep coming! I adore this Ralph & Russo gown worn by Danai Gurira. The entire look, along with the jewels and her hairstyle are incredibly sophisticated. Feathers are so often used to adorn skirts so it's refreshing to see the entire bodice covered in feathers with the skirt kept simple in this look. Just beautiful!
