How fashionable has the kick-off of the Golden Globe season become? – So fresh that the red carpet was actually black, this year. The super chic showed how neutral colors could capture the headlines, taking the staple black and white, and portraying it in a very 2016 way. Patterns, uneven hemlines and texture made these actresses winners in the fashion stakes.
Jess Weixler was dramatic in an asymmetrical cream dress with swarms of swallows as a detail – she was a vision in this Diane von Fürstenberg – like a walking cloud.
Lisa Edelstein’s flowered appliqué flesh-toned Naeem Khan included the bell shape that is sweeping the fashion world, while still revealing her form. The former House star can be seen in: Girlfriends Guide to Divorce.
Kelly McCreary embodied style. Designer, Dora Abdoli echoed the dominant shoulder straps on the striped bodice, and then crisscrossed them on the bell shaped skirt with uneven hemline. The Grey’s Anatomy star elongated her look by coiffing her hair in an elegant bun – the pumps by Leslie adding additional height.
Greer Grammer (Miss Golden Globe 2015) is in one of the few true minis on the carpet, the asymmetrical hem brought subtle attention to the stretch of leg, like an arrow saying, ‘look here’. The nude pumps making her leg look even longer.
Laura Prepon's Orange is the New Black, took ownership of the carpet in this sweeping Carmen Marc Valvo gown with train. The statuesque star wore LK Bennett shoes, a ring by Ambyr Childers and earrings by Bea Millen.
Jill Marie Jones (Starz Ash vs. Evil Dead) shimmered in this metallic showstopper by Betsy Johnson; the pumps by Christian Louboutin.
Maura Tierney was edgy in leather and chiffon, the stacked heel ankle boot and pulled back hair making The Affair star, very current.
Constance Zimmer (UnREAL) was sedate in this Corley gown with lace insert. The Emm Kuo beaded bag, the only touch of color.
Aja Naomi King (How to Get Away With Murder) killed on the carpet in this fresh pattered Zara dress. The stacked ankle-boot the trending boot for winter.
Jane Wu the Captain America: Civil War actress was quietly groomed with side swept hair and 5th Avenue appeal in this dress by Kooples. Note her shoes – Manolo Blahnik – a total work of art.
Katherine Hughes – Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, kept it simple with a tassel detail on the hem and texture on the torso, Leon Max playing up the feminine shape slyly.
You’ve gotta love Jean Smart not only for ruling her criminal sons in Fargo, but for this patterned dress with cinched waist, collar and pockets! Style and comfort – we love it!
