2014 couldn’t be off to a better start with Red Carpet Season! I am so looking forward to this award season; not only was 2013 full of amazing new shows but the movies…. ugh I am so obsessed! The best part is seeing all of these amazing actors and actresses come together and celebrate each other’s accomplishments. Granted, I’m sure that everyone secretly wishes the winner trips up the stairs (especially when you were one of the other nominee’s *giggle*). What they might not be aware of is the game they are playing by walking down that red carpet…. Did you strike out or did you knock it out of the park?
So many great looks to choose from… but you know me, there are only those few that just look so good you can hardly stand it. For my top picks, how about we start with a woman who not only has a powerful, fierce look off the red carpet, but for her to have her red carpet debut and just rock it is none the less impressive! So let me just say Lupita Nyong’o looked spectacular. And as I mentioned, this is her first red carpet event EVER and she showed up taking such a fashion risk with the cape… ummm hottness. Kudos to Ralph Lauren for this spectacular gown, but major kudos to the stylist for finding a gown that complemented Lupita in every way. From the color, to the fit, down to the cape, even down to the makeup and hair! Congrats Lupita for winning where it counts: the RED CARPET!
My second favorite look was Olivia Wilde. That is one hot momma! She looked amazing in her green Gucci dress, but her best accessory was the baby bump! Let’s just say this is what every expecting mommy wishes she could look like! I mean, I see this and I’m like, alright maybe having a baby bump won’t be ALL that bad. Haha – here’s to HIGH HOPES! Way to rock the red carpet Olivia and congrats on your newest addition!
The hardest part is only choosing one more favorite…so I’m not going to choose just one! My other faves were Taylor Swift and Cate Blanchette. First off, they both had two totally different but both equally beautiful (compliments of Carolina Hererra and Armani) gowns. But what really set these two different looks apart was a very similar pinned up bob! The flirty curled look on Taylor looked amazing in her two toned dress, gorge! The sexy sleek bob Cate Blanchette rocked served only to compliment the sultry lace dress. With this many gorgeous looks it was just too difficult to choose just three!
Over all, the Golden Globes were amazing… but of course we have our ladies who will just never learn. Contrary to popular belief, a gown that has fluttery flowers hanging off of it is not beautiful, looking like a banana is a fail, and hair is crucial – enough said. So Drew Barrymore, Lena Dunham, and Amy Adams, go home, take notes and try not to strike out at the SAG Awards. Trust, I’ll be watching you.
