The Golden Globes are always a bright spark in chilly, grey January; this year’s was no exception, as both red carpet veterans and rising stars showcased their first look of the Awards season. As fashion obsessed PR people, we here at B Public Relations, bring you our best dressed of the night.
Rita Ora’s plunging jumpsuit was just the start – this season, dangerously low necklines were seen on everyone from J-Lo, who teamed her Zuhair Murad gown with a thigh high split and head-to-toe sparkle, to Rosamund Pike, who kicked off what will no doubt be a successful 2015 with an ethereal Vera Wang backless gown. Other stars who wore the neckline du jour were Lana Del Rey in vintage Travilla and Cara Delevigne in Thierry Mugler (worn by Georgia May Jagger in 2013!).
It was Kate Hudson that really stole the show in her cut-out Versace, and she looked more than pleased to show off her curves in the embellished fishtail gown. Sienna Miller gave her Miu Miu number a relaxed, bohemian twist with her infectious smile and gorgeous short waves.
Many of the Golden Globes big stars went for a neutral palette, with Salma Hayek, Emily Blunt and Anna Faris opting for plain shapes in cream and white. Determined not to let the January blues beat them, Reese Witherspoon and Diane Kruger kept the party going into the New Year with elegant silver dresses. Reese, who missed out on the award for Best Actress for her role in Wild, still managed to stun the crowds with her strapless Calvin Klein gown and old Hollywood waves.
Diane stuck to the look she knows best, with an unfussy and extremely chic Emilia Wickstead dress, while the star of this year’s hotly-anticipated Fifty Shades, Dakota Johnson, captured everyone’s eye in Chanel couture and a matte berry lip. No doubt she will have to get used to the attention! Although edgy cut-outs and lashings of shimmer were clearly the top trend for the awards, some stars strayed from the crowd, and did so beautifully. After showcasing a series of eye-catching pieces last year (remember that bedazzled green Prada from the Met Gala?), Lupita Nyong’o brought a burst of colour in purple ombré Giambattista Valli.
Anna Kendrick also kept her look feminine and sweet in delicate floral Monique Lhuillier. Supporting her new fantasy film Into the Woods, the Pitch Perfect star also looked every inch the fairytale princess off-screen.
The red carpet wasn’t all about the fashion though – in light of recent events in Paris, several conscious celebrities chose to show their support of Charlie Hebdo victims by carrying Je Suis Charlie signs. Helen Mirren wore a pen on her dress, in support of the journalists whilst Amal Clooney kept a badge pinned to her Dior clutch, making a statement in more ways that one, and new husband George pinned the same badge to his lapel.
With the Oscars just around the corner, we can’t wait to see what our favourite celebrity fashion icons will bring to the table next!
