What's Her Best Golden Globes Look?
Chances are she’s going to hit the carpet in something simple, black and Valentino, but always manages to bring a sexy twist. She’s a pioneer of the whole tuxedo-sans-shirt look (in 2002). She never underestimates the power of a plunging neckline (2004’s Valentino gown). Plus, the Cake nominee knows how to strike the perfect pose while wearing a thigh-high slit (2010’s Valentino couture moment).
Her hair is always changing, but that sassy stance stays exactly the same. redefined the “breakover” when she showed up at the 2007 Globes wearing bangs and a canary yellow Nina Ricci cocktail dress. In 2012, she went all-out glam in a red Zac Posen design and bombshell waves. Her 2014 Calvin Klein Collection dress came to stylist Leslie Fremar in a dream, and the sleek lines complemented the Wild star’s sleek asymmetrical bob.
From her 2009 Oscar de la Renta confection to her 2013 blush Marchesa moment, the Best Actress loves a statement gown. But we have a feeling her two-tone Valentino stunner (from 2014) will win your vote.
Will the Into the Woods be adding another golden statue to her collection? She received the award in 2007 for her role in Gideon’s Daughter, wearing a white bandage design with a chiffon hem and jeweled neckline. In 2010, she was nominated for Young Victoria and selected a ruffled Dolce & Gabbana confection. Our personal favorite? When Emily showed off her abs in 2012 in a gold cutout Michael Kors stunner.
Remember when was super-blonde and used to get spray tans? The year was 2011, and the actress wore a peach Calvin Klein Collection dress to the Globes. The following year, the Birdman star pulled a style 180 in a custom-made wine-hued Lanvin gown featuring embroidery at the shoulders.
When she burst onto the scene in 2012, already looked like a seasoned red carpet pro in her white, pearl-embellished turtleneck Givenchy gown. (Bold move, right?) The following year she accepted a statue for her performance in Zero Dark Thirty wearing an aqua Calvin Klein Collection design. And by 2014, her movie star stats were fully certified when she showed up in a black strapless Givenchy dress and Bulgari necklace.
We’d probably cringe if anyone else hit the carpet in a bedazzled jacket, palazzo pants and purple-lens glasses, but, come on, it’s Meryl. And we can’t blame anyone for their style choices in 2003. In 2007, the multi-Globe winner streamlined things a bit (and and accessorized with a Golden Globe for The Devil Wears Prada), choosing a Grecian-inspired Carolina Herrera gown. In 2012, she won again for The Iron Lady in a voluminous black-belted design that once again put her in the “risk-taker” category.
