2014 Golden Globe Rundown

tina-fey-5-amy-poehler-3The 2014 Golden Globes began the real kickoff for winter award shows, and our favorite funny ladies, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (pictured, top), killed it – with humor and glamor.  This above photo was our favorite look the two best friends donned last night: Tina wore a red bustled Carolina Herrera gown (although it photographed pink here), while Amy, who not only picked up her first award for playing Leslie Knope on one of our favorite shows, Parks & Recreation, but she also looked better than she ever has in a Stella McCartney black column gown with subtle white edging, and diamond earrings.  And it seems the hostess wasn’t the only one donning black and white!  Zosia Mamet, Jenna Dewan, Laura Carmichael, Hayden Panettiere, Jennifer Lawrence, Zoe Saldana, Allison Williams, Heidi Klum, and Julia Roberts all sported the classic contrasting combo, as well.  Roberts’ Dolce & Gabbana gown was a Lupita-Nyong'o-1julia-roberts-28little unusual (pictured, above right) but we thought it was sophisticated.  It probably would have looked better on a more mature actress, but we still liked it.  It seems if you weren’t wearing the popular color combo, actresses were either wearing black, white or red – the two biggest trends at last year’s Golden Globe and SAG Awards.  Even though many attendees wore similar hues, we did like a lot of the gowns at the Globes, but no one did the color red like newcomer and first time nominee Lupita Nyong’o (pictured, above left), who looked absolutely lovely in a caped, scarlet Ralph Lauren gown.  It reminded us of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Tom Ford gown at the 2012 Oscars.  She made wearing red on the red carpet look easy, when it most definitely is not!  Another newcomer, Margot Robbie (pictured, below left) turned everyone’s heads in a jewel-encrusted white Gucci gown, and emerald Christian Louboutin “Volpi 150” heels, which theSkinnyStiletto featured as a 2012 “Wednesday’s Shoe,” during “Irish Week!”  The hostesses with the “mostess,” Tina & Amy, stayed with the same designers all night, and wore the exact same hues last year when they hosted the 2013 Golden Globes, but this year, the funny girls switched colors (pictured, below right).  Both sported form-fitting gowns: Fey wore a burgundy Carolina Herrera silk, beaded V-neck, and Poehler chose a deep teal gown by McCartney, which featured lace margot-robbie-1tina-fey-6-amy-poehler-4panels down the side.  Poehler’s political competition, Julia Louis-Dreyfus (pictured, bottom right), looked fabulous in a bright red Narciso Rodriguez halter gown (it’s unbelievable that she turned 53 today)!  Our final favorite was Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad.  While we’re not big on mermaid gowns or metallic, the beautiful Brit pulled off both while donning this sexy silver creation, Chopard jewels, and showing off that creamy complexion of hers.  It’s hard to believe she’s 40!  (Remember girls, sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen!)  The only two dresses our editors really didn’t like were Julie Bowen’s odd red/purple velvet creation, and Olivia Wilde’s skintight green gown by Gucci.  The always gorgeous Bowen looked like she was wearing a little girl’s Christmas dress from 1994, while we were stunned by how many fashion editors liked Wilde’s hideous dress.  She looked like the pregnant alien Sofia Vergara dressed up as for Halloween on Modern Family.  You want answers on how to flatter the pregnant form?  Justkate-beckinsale-5 ask Kate Middleton and Kerry Washington.Julia-Louis-Dreyfus-2 Onto the SAG Awards!
