71st Golden Globe Awards : on the red carpet

Okay, so I know there are a bazillion posts out there documenting and scrutinising the fashion on the recent Golden Globe awards. Well I am a sucker for the awards season and the glitterati..yup, guilty as charged!

So let me show you the looks that I noticed, liked and loved along with some trends that seemed popular on the red carpet.

Note: this is a purely fashion article, so don’t hate on me for loving gowns on small bodies!

Trends I noticed:

1) Colour Blocking

Ooh Gabbi’s outfit has caused quite a stir hasn’t it? I think it’s great that she looked and obviously felt so beautiful in the gown. In my opinion, the fabric was not becoming. Designers have to learn to customise beautiful gowns and make the effort to cater to plus sized celebrities, so there will be
much more hits than misses for these ladies. I remember Melissa catching flack for her outfit last year and I am glad she looked so classy this time But I would like to see her, Gabbi and other plus sized celebrities in more contemporary styled evening wear. We are a very important part of the fashion industry as Forbes magazine pointed out recently, and the era of dressing school-marmi like is Long Gone. Unless that’s your style choice, of course..to each her own right?

Here are some of the ladies I love to watch on tv, all dressed up for the red carpet :

    1. hee thanks!
      I’ve noticed that the celebrities pick up trends that are largely influenced by the designers they pick and wear these styles on the red carpet so I keep an eye out for it. I know what you mean about Gaga! Such a fresh change and she looks healthier too šŸ™‚
