It was a night of intoxicating glamour, last minute wardrobe changes and bagfuls of nerves. Yes, whilst most of us were attempting to get some shut eye, our darlings on the other side of the pond were strutting their sartorial stuff up and down the Golden Globes red carpet. In a flurry of flashbulbs we witnessed a host of shenanigans: from stolen kisses to the ultimate photobomb, all by way of a not so subtle thigh flash. Yes, Amber Heard, we’re talking about you. Saucy minx. As the dust settles, the hangovers kick in and the flashbacks rear their ugly heads, join us to count down the Top 12 do’s and don’t’s of Golden Globes red carpet dressing…
1- DO mix it up
From Lupita Nyong’o in a caped Ralph Lauren wonder to Julia Roberts rocking a white shirt/ ball gown combo, this year’s awards were most definitely the place to throw a splash of risk into your wardrobe repertoire.
2- DO accessorise with a bump, pregnant lady glow and a smile
Olivia Wilde draped her bump in glittering Gucci sequins, Drew Barrymore plumped for florals courtesy of Monique Lhuillier and Kerry Washington kept it chic and classic in Balenciaga. Whatever they wore, we all agree these future baby mummas more than stole the show. Hats off to you, ladies.
3- DON’T be afraid to throw a splash of colour into the mix
A la everyone’s favourite Girl, Lena Dunham.
4- DO steal the show in a classic
Chic yet fun, timeless yet undeniably youthful. Emma Roberts- bravo.
5- DON’T think throwing all you’ve got into a single dress will make for a good look
We say this with the best of intentions. Sorry Zoe Saldana…
6- DO boss it in green velvet and a smile
Matthew McConaughey, you da ultimate man.
7- DON’T forget your trousers
Especially not when rocking this unusual Dior ensemble…
8- DON’T forget mum’s the word
Take your cue from chivalrous gents DiCaprio and Cooper and remember who’s top of your Christmas list when selecting dates for the ‘do of the season.
9- DO dress your age; and prove you still look like a sex bomb
Helen Mirren, you’ve got it nailed…
10- DON’T take fashion advice from a cowgirl
Come on now, Heidi. Put that lasso away.
11- DO concede that bigger is better
Not least in the world of red carpet dressing. Look to Sofia Vergara for proof.
12- DO keep it simple
Silk column dress. Statement necklace. Smile.
