Unlike last week’s rant about poor outfit choices and horrible banter between presenters, this year’s Golden Globes brought the fashionable and the funny.
Let’s start with the laughs of the night. Ricky Gervais was a great host and most of the people he poked fun at were good sports about it. You can watch his entire opening monologue but his introduction of Colin “Hottie McSexyPants” Firth was one of my favorite moments:
Punching blind kittens, eh? I still love Mr. Darcy. And how about Seth Rogen’s exciting announcement on stage? Well played, sir. Well played.
But let’s get real, I was watching for the gowns and tuxedos. Let’s take a look at some handsome fellas.
Doesn’t it look like JGL is looking right at you? A girl can dream. I love that he chose a patterned bow tie and his classic hitRECord red button. Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Wahlberg always look dashing, this night was no different. That’s a dog. On the red carpet. In a bow tie. To quote Rachel Zoe, I die.
And now for a breath of fresh air! Let’s start with what they’re all doing right (in my opinion, of course). Up-dos, cinched in waists, jewelry that doesn’t distract from the dress. Black and white is such a classic combination but Kate spruces it up with pleated details and a sexy slit on top. Emma Stone…how I love thee and thy style. The plunging neckline is met by an eagle belt, which oddly works with her Grecian-esque dress. Red lips are the perfect accessory to a b&w outfit. Her gown is sort of like a tuxedo, which I love. And then there’s the Dame. Navy blue is a universally flattering color and makes diamonds look even more sparkly and elegant than they already are. She shows the right amount of flesh for her age with a deep v-neck and long sleeves.
