2013 / Golden Globe Awards

-2013 / Golden Globe Awards

It's always a joyous day after a big event, fashion gossip over coffee is truly soothing, and if you're a movie buff like me, you might just get a little overwhelmed. Here is what I thought of this year's Golden Globe Awards' outfits, with a cinematic twist. 

Amy Adams in Marchesa 
Amy wore a beautiful blush/nude gown by Marchesa. While the cut of the dress is not necessarily my cup of tea I think she looked lovely. The lace and tulle combination in that soft color is dazzling, and I don't think it washes her out. After all, hello it's nude! I also think her hairstyle was a smart choice and it went well with the entire look. To create a perfect version out of this gown for myself, I would make the lace part fitted all the way down, and add a soft layer of the tulle just below the bodice to create a dreamy gown with that sense of sheerness.

Anne Hathaway in Chanel Couture
Anne wore a Chanel Couture gown to the event, and she looked beautiful, then again she always does, but I expected more from her. I love the simplicity of the dress and I love the fact that the peplum trend is not overdone here, but there is something underwhelming about this look, I guess because she's been wearing a lot of white lately. Anne does look pretty, but if I were going to the Golden Globe Awards with a guaranteed win, I would've chosen to put more thought into my look.

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad
Now, J Lo was the event's biggest deja vu, lucky for her I don't care. The Zuhair Murad gown she wore is gorgeous and I'm glad she did not go with a sparkly version this time, it is soft and ladylike and it's doing her lots of good deeds. I would have loved to see a maroon clutch with that gown, the hair color and the entire feel of the look is too light, not pale but light, and needs a little pop of color somewhere.

Katharine McPhee In Theyskens’ Theory
One of my rare favorites from last night, the edgy design by Theyskens’ Theory looks very flattering on her, it's surprising how simplicity can make you stand out in the land of couture gowns. I love the clear straps on the sandals too. I think I might've preferred to see more curls and a fluffier hairdo with that dress, but hands down, my favorite look!

Kerry Washington in Miu Miu
Kerry Washington's fashion moments are endless, her looks lately have been constantly glamorous. It is not easy to manipulate sparkles, but the delicate color, the soft fabric and the simple hairstyle all prevent this dress from looking overwhelmed by the sparkles. I must say, I personally don't like clothes that sparkle but this outfit is refreshing on too many levels, Kudos Kerry!

Kristen Wiig in Michael Kors
Kristen Wiig in Michael Kors is also one of my favorite looks from the event, the chic minimalistic cutout dress looks beautiful on her. She is showing just the right amount of skin to stay away from the boring conservative black maxi look. The cutout in the front makes the dress look sexy, but not too sexy. I love the easiness of the hair with that sort of stiff-looking fabric. Overall, the look is smart and is making her look so young and pretty!

I think 2012 was sort of dull and dry moviewise, and the fashion choices went well with that, there were a lot of similarities and many less wow fashion moments.

Here's my favorite version of I Dreamed a Dream by Ruthie Henshall, enjoy and happy new year! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-p6OH7FoWoQ
