Golden Globes 2016: The Night's Biggest Trends
For many stars, their, um, Golden Globes, were a key part of their red carpet look, blending sexy with sophisticated effortessly – as seen here on Taylor Schilling (in Thakoon), Olivia Wilde (in Michael Kors Collection), Sophia Bush (in Narciso Rodriguez), Portia Doubleday (wearing Naeem Khan) and Kirsten Dunst (in Valentino Haute Couture).
Gina Rodriguez (in Neil Lane), Jaimie Alexander (in Lorraine Schwartz) and Laverne Cox (also in Lorraine Schwartz) were the envy of all in their glittering green baubles.
Is everyone in Hollywood a secret Supergirl fan? How else to explain the caped crusade – as seen on at least eight stars – that took over the red carpet? Lily James (in Marchesa), Jada Pinkett Smith (wearing Atelier Versace), Emilia Clarke (in Valentino), Jennifer Lopez (in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture) and Taraji P. Henson (in Stella McCartney) all went for a look that really soared.
Among the ladies singing the (jewel-toned) blues: Julianne Moore (in Tom Ford), Jenna Dewan-Tatum (in Zuhair Murad), Viola Davis (in Marchesa), Kate Winslet (in Ralph Lauren Collection), and Gina Rodriguez (in Zac Posen).
DAZZLING DIAMOND CHOKERS
Delicate pendants? Not a chance. This year it was all about the megawatt statement necklace, including Emmy Rossum’s Van Cleef & Arpels, Jennifer Lopez’s layered Harry Winston pieces and Helen Mirren’s 83-carat Harry Winston number.
Forget the LBD: The 2016 Golden Globes were all about the MWD (or Major White Dress). Taraji P. Henson (in Stella McCartney), Maria Menounos, Laverne Cox (in Elizabeth Kennedy), Alicia Vikander (in Louis Vuitton) and Saiorse Ronan (in Yves Saint Laurent Couture) all made a huge impact by choosing the understated shade.
No dainty plaits here: Maria Menounos, Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett aimed for the best-tressed list in chunky, statement braids that were almost accessories in themselves.
Brie Larson (in Calvin Klein Collection), Eva Green (in Elie Saab) and a newly-engaged Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (in Atelier Versace) put the “gold” in Golden Globes with their burnished-metal dresses.
Not to embellish too much, but a fully beaded, sparkling gown was the most surefire way to stop traffic on the carpet – just ask Uzo Aduba (in Talbot Runhof), Julianne Moore (in Tom Ford), Kate Bosworth (in Dolce & Gabbana) and Bryce Dallas Howard (in Jenny Packham).
RUFFLES & MORE RUFFLES
Some stars went sleek, while others went sweet. Those going super-girlie included Jane Fonda (in Yves Saint Laurent Couture), Rooney Mara, Alicia Vikander (in Louis Vuitton) and Amanda Peet.
Not only do these ladies get our kudos for picking one of the trickiest hues for anyone to pull off, they get our hearty applause for looking awesome in it. Lola Kirke (in Monique Lhuillier), America Ferrera (in Jenny Packham) and Jennifer Lopez (in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture) certainly couldn't be missed in their sunny, standout dresses.
They were your average chignons … with a twist. Kate Bosworth, Portia Doubleday and Heidi Klum all sported updos with a little something extra.
Collarbone-showcasing gowns in deep, dark red wine (as seen on Zendaya in Marchesa, Felicity Huffman in Lorena Sarbu and Olivia Wilde in Michael Kors Collection) were intoxicatingly elegant.
GLOSSY NUDE LIPS
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (who swiped on Dior Addict Lipstick in #535 Tailleur Bar), Taraji P. Henson and Kate Hudson all ditched the Old Hollywood reds for a thoroughly modern, barely-blushing lip hue.
Nothing gets you to stop in your tracks quite like a classic red gown. The proof: Jennifer Lawrence’s Dior Haute Couture, Natalie Dormer’s J. Mendel and Emmy Rossum’s Armani Privé.
