Best Dressed- Golden Globes 2013

Happy awards season everyone! This is one of my favorite times of year- all the pretty dresses, sexy men in tuxedos, and an opportunity for me to scream things like "WRECK IT RALPH WAS ROBBED!" at the television. (Seriously, it was.) Sunday night brought the Golden Globes, a wonderful event made even better by Tina Fey & Amy Poehler hosting. I could barely catch my breath between fits of laughter. I know there are more important things in the world like politics and the fiscal blah blah blah and whatever- but sometimes it's okay to just enjoy watching pretty people walk down a red carpet in gorgeous gowns. Right?

The above ladies are my absolute favorites of all favorites from Sunday evening. I was honestly shocked by how beautiful the gowns were- and so much gold on the red carpet! I approve. Whittling down this list was so difficult for me! Everyone kind of killed it. Very few fashion disasters.

Best Dressed for me goes to Michelle Dockery- Lady Mary from Downton Abbey. She looks so amazing in this white and gold gown by Paris-based designer Alexandre Vauthier. It's definitely a standout red carpet moment for her, and I'm so glad because she's one of my favorite actresses right now. It's fresh, different, and her short hair goes perfectly with the dress. Total perfection.

Kate Hudson in this Alexander McQueen number comes in a close second for me. She looks totally fabulous. Plus, anything McQueen is pretty much guaranteed awesome. That gold! Love it. Plus, I'm happy she left her hair down- slicked up would have been too severe.

Okay, this next one is a little controversial. (In the fashion world- not in like actual world.) Rachel Weisz in Louis Vuitton- it's odd and a bit quirky for her, but I totally love it. I don't think many people would have taken a risk like this and had it work out, but on her, this polka dot number with the hair somehow reads old Hollywood glamour. It just works for me. A lot of people think it's the wrong dress for the Golden Globes, but I say sucks to your propriety! Fashion is about having fun and experimenting- no matter what venue.

Emily Blunt! You lucky lady, you. Not only are you married to my dream husband, John Krasinski, but you pull off this Michael Kors side cut-out dress like nobody's business. And, can I just say- THANK YOU for not wearing a muted pale pink/nude/blush number. I feel like that's usually within her style comfort zone, so it was nice to see her mix things up with the gold. Oh, and the up-do is totally working with this look. So happy she opted for that instead of beachy waves- it took it from what could have been a boho moment, to a movie-star moment.

J. LAW! This bish is the queen of my heart. From her Meryl Streep First Wives Club reference during her acceptance speech for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for Silver Linings Playbook, to this gorgeous Dior Haute Couture dress. Not many women could pull this off, but she nails it. Love the belt. Gurl, let's be best friends.

Tina Fey in L'Wren Scott & Amy Poehler in Stella McCartney- PERFECTION. Need I say more? These women are my absolute heroes. They can do no wrong. And seeing them on the red carpet in this 1940's dress/tuxedo combo... I could die. Totally great.

What did you guys think of the fashion at the Golden Globes?

  4. Everyone looked amazingggg! And yes.. Best dressed was Lady Mary. She was STUNNING!

    Saw you changed your blog... I changed mine too..


  5. I agree that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler can do no wrong, and Michelle Dockery definitely looked amazing, but I am not a fan of Kate Hudson or Rachel Weisz's dresses. Personally, I think the award for best black and gold dress went to Helen Mirren :) My boyfriend's only comment on these ladies' dresses? "Her boobs look like they are going to fall out." - referring to Jennifer Lawrence

    My absolute favorite look of the night goes to Quentin Tarantino's date, though:


  6. They all look so perfect! If only we could all be so lucky!

  7. For me, Weisz's look would have been perfection if the bottom wasn't sheer. I do love Kate Hudson's look too. There's something about long, slim sleeves on a dress that does it for me. Looks very chic.

  8. I love Michelle Dockery's and Jennifer Lawrence's! It's so classy!


  9. Oh my, Michelle Dockery's Alexandre Vauthier is absolutely stunning! I need that dress in my life right now, along with a plethora of occasions to wear it to! So stunning.
    Love your blog, Carmen! Following you now.
