TVC STYLE: Golden Globes

Awards season is fully upon us. As you were sleeping last night, the fashion eyes of the world were scanning the red carpet for the latest trends for the stylish year ahead. 

The Golden Globes were lets just say interesting this year. We had an out of date Ricky Gervais, Jonah Hill in a bear hat, J-Law and A-Shu's skit and lastly...

What up with Channing Tatum's hair? Jeez. Google it. Or don't if you still want to dram of Magic Mike.

And some of us were just waiting to see if poor old Leo Di Cap gets a gong. (SPOILER: He did...its finally happening. He's going for that Oscar!) But what he did deliver was a serious serving of savage side eye. Yeesh!

As the night unfolded there were obviously some fashion hits and some misses. But as I was looking at some of the polls, I couldn't help but disagree with some of the opinions (each to their own). So I decided to go for my own round up of the best, the worst, the 'meh' and the after party dresses.

Lets...GO!!!

The Best



I must say, those that haven't been featured do not equal my dislike. Its just that these five dresses were my absolute favourites. I couldn't stop staring for a few reasons. One, they were different. Yes it is a 'oooh ahhh' moment when you see a puffy ballgown on the red carpet, but for me, I want to see style. I want to see colour. And I want to see elegance in tow.

That is why these five dresses made my heart beat faster. And it goes a little like this...

1. Jennifer Lopez - 10/10 for colour choice. I love everything about the look. It could have been easy to go for a red siren dress to ooze sex appeal, but I love how she picked an unexpected hue to make us swoon.
2. Rachel McAdams - No bias here. Rachel is one of my favourite actresses. Great on the big screen, but even stellar on the fashion front. She cuts an elegant shape with a different pattern. That takes skill...and this girl got it.
3. Laverne Cox - THIS! Classic, elegant but different. There are no other words. This girl just kills it every time. Very similar to Taraji P Henson's dress. Which I also loved. 
4. Olivia Palermo - Be still my beating heart. The Queen has arrived. Equal parts unexpected and elegant. It was a solid winner. 
5. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - This was my across the board favourite look from the whole night. And as if that wasn't enough, my favourite human got engaged to her beau, Jason Statham. Just stop and think about that wedding...swooon!


The Worst 





Now I'm not labelling a fashion dunce on these lovely ladies. I'm not being mean. I just thought there were better dresses out there.

1. Katy Perry - This dress reminds me of the Kim Kardashian pink latex number of late 2014. Plus the 90's esque hair bump-it? I'm not going to say anymore. *shudders* 
2. Maggie Gyllenhaal - I love the style and the shape of this dress...just let's take a second to address that print though. I mean really? 
3. Jennifer Lawrence - This I just didn't get. I love the colour on her but I thought that the cheeky flash of the abs was pretty tacky. So J-Law.
4. Lady GaGa - Ah. The classic Marilyn Monroe. Seen it. Great at the time but I think GaGa has a lot more class to follow her own style. 
5. Zendaya - This I love and hate at the same time. I love the colour/fabric but the bottom half I just don't love. I hate saying this because I love her and her make-up was amazing last night.


The 'Meh's




Now these dresses I'm not going to list because they all follow the same format, predictable. Yes, they are all so beautifully stunning. And yes, they all look amazing. But as I said earlier, I like to see something different and something less regulated.


The After-Party Dresses




After the show it's the afterparty then, after the party it's the hotel lobby. We all know the rules.

Now, these looks I loved, with my favourite being Selena Gomez. The after party is where you chill, let your hair down and cry into your Mo√ęt because you didn't get a gong. Or was that just Leo Di Caps? Savage...

In all seriousness, the after parties are where its at. And if these are that good...I can't wait for the Oscars!

  1. I photographed a fundraising conference here recently. What a wonderful place for photos. I almost always hate being anywhere at 6am, but this breakfast event proved an exception. The venues manger and his staff were extremely professional.
