Awards season is officially upon us, and despite how dreary this time of year can be, you can always count on Tinseltown to whip us up into a frenzy about a load of frocks. Personally I adore trawling through each and every photo from these types of events, but I know that it’s not for everyone, that’s why year after year I create a favourites post to highlight some of the best dresses that the event had to offer, today it’s The Golden Globes. The awards of course are important, and I couldn’t be happier that Girls scooped Best TV Comedy, but after all, I am a fashion blogger and so of course the dresses are going to be my first port of call. So without further ado, here are the dresses that really stood out to me this year, all for the right reasons.
Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen
It wouldn’t be a Golden Globes 2013 list without this piece de resistance in the mix. Kate Hudson always looks gorgeous, but for some reason this Alexander McQueen frock totally stole the show for me. The black and gold mix, the detailing, it’s more edgy vibe, I could go on and on about the reasons I love this look so much. Most of all I can totally imagine Goldie Hawn rocking something like this back in the day, maybe there was a mother/daughter chat before they went to pick a dress?
Zooey Deschanel in Oscar De La Renta
She was one of my favourites in last year’s line-up, and this year she hasn’t toppled from my love-list. It’s Zooey Deschanel working Oscar De La Renta in her trademark cutesy style. This gorgeous retro-style dress sums up Zooey’s style perfectly and the addition of pearls makes it that little more quaint without being too dress-up. I love simple dresses like this when they’re styled right and Zooey made the right decision by going less-is-more, it makes so much more impact.
Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen
I don’t think I’ve ever featured Kelly Osbourne here on the blog, but for some reason, she really stood out to me this year with her Zac Posen frock. The fitted, figure-flattering dress teamed with that amazing purple hair was so up my street and I loved that she added another pop of colour with some emerald green. The whole look was so seamless for me, and if she’d had any other hair colour, this look might not have made so much of a splash, but I’m so glad she’s keeping those purple tresses.
Rachel Weisz in Louis Vuitton
Accessories-wise, Rachel Weisz won by a mile for bringing James Bond with her to the Golden Globes. No clutch bag can top that. Her Louis Vuitton frock was absolutely stunning, with sheer detailing, polka dots and a bow at the waist. A black dress is always timeless and Rachel upped the classic ante with a side-swept glossy ‘do and berry lip.
Amy Adams in Marchesa
Marchesa is no stranger on the red carpet, it’s now become almost mandatory for at least one celeb to be spotted wearing Marchesa at an event like this, and causing a stir at that. I always find myself drawn to the gorgeous dresses, of which Blake Lively is a superfan and they never disappoint. This fishtail frock is perfect on Amy and shows off her pale complexion rather than working against it. I’m a big fan of a classic, side-swept ‘do, so of course I was loving the dress and hair combination. Top marks Amy.
