Red Carpet – Golden Globes 2017

The Red Carpet for the Golden Globes 2017 didn’t disappoint. ‘Style’ is definitely in Style and Hollywood showed how effortless they can do dressing up. Lots of silhouettes were represented and the see-through body con looks of the past are now being mixed in with flowy fabrics, lace, shimmer and tulle. I love the shimmer of the gowns that  Naomie Harris, Regina King and Golden Globe winner, Tracee Ellis Ross wore. Mandy Moore, Kirsten Bell and Jessica Biel bravely took the plunge with deep V necklines. I love the edge that Kerry Washington, Janelle Monae, Nicole Kidman and Ruth Negga brought with their looks.

The guys as a whole were very classic! The basic tuxedo was the go-to for the majority of the fellas although Donald Glover stepped out in Brown velvet and Jeremy Renner and Casey Afflect showed us how great tailoring can step up a classic look. Couples, Angela Basset and Courtney B Vance, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend and Sterling K. Brown and Ryan Michelle Bathe were all complimentary as pairs.

The hair and makeup looks were equally gorgeous with natural glam winning the day and semi coiffed hair featured as a perfect accessory. Here are some of my favorite looks. Who had your favorite gown of the night?

Until next year…….  Valerie
