Golden Moments

Here are my comments on the 2010 Golden Globes’ fash dash.

The red carpet was full of black – not a huge surprise, but there’s been less of it in recent years from the A-listers (most of the hired PR help in the background do the black).

People played it safe, but played up the accessories to enhance the noir palette.

January Jones playing Mary Poppins on the soggy GG red carpet.

January Jones accessorized her Lanvin shoulder twist dress with a fresh updo and ribbon headband. This look isn’t new but it made Jones look fresh, much preferred to the overdone poufs down the carpet.

Love the red lipstick on January.

There was a teardrop earring trend – my favourites were the topaz and diamond numbers worn by Courtney Cox. Her hair was my favourite of the night, too. I am definitely working that do at a future event (incidentally, it looks much better from the side – didn’t photograph that well). The earrings I will dream about.

Baubles dazzle on Courtney.

Julianne Moore wore a pair of teardrops as well – not as stunning as Courtney’s…

…but then she already had the best accessory of the night…Mr. Ford on her arm. Made up for her lack-lustre Balenciaga flopping dress.

The only accessory a girl needs.

Nudes and whites also dominated…Drew did nude best, in Atelier Versace.

Nude, with a twist on Drew.
Drew, being Drew. She won her first GG on Sunday night.

I wasn’t crazy about Kate Hudson’s Marchesa dress, but props to her for being able to walk in these insane platforms.

She makes it look so easy!

Then there were the random bursts of jewel tones…

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s coral RM by Roland Mouret dress fit her to perfection. It was simple, yet unique. The organza applique reminds me of my mom’s sarees.

Cameron Diaz dared to wear red – always a great colour on her. The dress is a McQueen stunner, but it’s meant to be worn with utter confidence. Having to hold up the train because of the rain and it being satin, it just didn’t come across like it should have.

Not meant to be accessorized with black shoes or a striped umbrella, the McQueen misses in this case.
However, the colour is perfect on Cameron.

Thanks Cameron for not wearing nude lipstick with a red dress – usually the safe route in Hollywood.

I’m not one for big dresses, but Sofia Vergara from Modern Family carried the graphite and red Carolina Herrera so beautifully.

Beautiful, even with the rain marks.

Her dewy makeup and side-pinned loose hair was oh so elegant.

The men played it safe this year. Alas, no Johnny on the red carpet.

Mickey Rourke  represented though, with an alligator lapelled suit. On anyone else, it would have been ridiculous…but it was very Mickey.

And English gentleman Colin Firth was a class act with 1920s diamond studs on his shirt, dressed by Mr. Ford, of course.
