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.
My apologies for the delay between blog posts. I've been working 60 hour work weeks recently, but thankfully that's over for now.
The 91st (or as Tina Fey joked the millionth) Academy Awards was held recently. Between the red carpet and the Vanity Fair After Party there were so many fantastic looks I had to split the list into two. So first off my picks for best dressed at the show!
Sarah Paulson wore this bright and beautiful Brandon Maxwell gown at the show. While pink was the color for this year's Oscars, this dress is quite unique. It's quite voluminous and could easily overwhelm the wearer, but the cutouts are perfectly sized and placed to show off Ms. Paulson's figure.
I love this lilac Balmain gown worn by Emilia Clark. The structured bodice paired with the drapey skirt out of this slinky metallic material is perfect for this Game of Thrones star. The color, while similar to the pinks worn on the carpet, was different enough to stand out.
Lady Gaga shined as bright as the $30 million Tiffany & Co necklace she wore with this Alexander McQueen gown by Sarah Burton. I love this look from head to toe. It's incredibly elegant with the voluminous skirt and train, but with modern twists perfect for Lady Gaga, like the drop waist and sculptural hips.
My favorite look goes to this Christian Siriano ensemble worn by Billy Porter. This design is so innovative and when I look at it I wonder why did we have to wait til 2019 to see it? The look was versatile, too. While Billy Porter was hosting red carpet interviews for the ABC Network he had a slimmer skirt and a skinny tie, which he changed out for the ballgown skirt and bowtie when he walked the red carpet. While many have worn their take on the men's suit on the red carpet, none have blurred the lines of gender identity quite like this one and Billy Porter was the perfect person to wear it. He is confident, loves fashion and always has fun at these stuffy award shows. And thank you to Glenn Close for perfectly responding to this fantastic ensemble!
