Golden Globe Awards

January 31, 2016

Awards Season is upon us and, while I confess I haven’t seen all of the movies up for awards this year, I do tune in to watch the red carpet. It’s not just the movies that get the “Oscar Bump,” the fashion fads and faux pas get the limelight as well. To be honest, the fashion is my favorite part. And, while I don’t necessarily have occasion to don a ball gown any time soon, I like to take note of the current trends I can incorporate into my everyday wardrobe.

So far, the major award shows that have happened include The Golden Globe Awards and the Critics Choice Awards, and there are many articles out there noting the trends this year. While the pool of guests is incredibly large, I decided to narrow the playing field to the winners of the various acting-specific awards. Arguably, these actors’ wardrobe choices receive the most attention. At the very least, they have more moments in front of the camera due to the fact that they, well, take the stage to accept the award. Because of this parameter, they may not necessarily be the individuals who normally set the next trend, but I like to take my cues from the winners, don’t you?

The first major awards show of the season was The Golden Globes. With a whopping 14 acting-specific categories, the Golden Globes is probably my favorite Awards Ceremony because the worlds of television and film collide and, since I am a bi-partisan viewer, I greatly enjoy the show.

This year, I was pretty stoked for Gael Garcia Bernal’s win in the category of Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy/Musical for “Mozart in the Jungle.” I’m a big fan of Mr. Bernal and of the show. So, with that said, let’s examine the fashion the leading gentlemen chose to wear to the Golden Globes this year. Feast your eyes on this bunch of winners:

Okay, so the differences between mens’ red carpet fashion is subtle. The first thing I noticed was a major bow tie trend. My personal favorite bow tie was Mr. Bernal’s (and not just because I’m biased). There’s something very crisp and clean about the pleats, plus it proportionally fits Mr. Bernal (I can’t say the same for Jon Hamm…). For the most part, lapels were pretty sleek and slim with the exception of Sylvester Stallone’s and Leonard DiCaprio’s rather wider lapels. Christian Slater and Oscar Isaacs in particular rocked lapels with peaks, making the look altogether sleek and minimalist.

On to the leading ladies:

First thing I noticed about the women? No poofy princess dresses. All of the female winners wore sleek, form-fitting dresses that showed off their natural curves in the best kind of way.

The dresses that Rachel Bloom, Taraji Henson, and Kate Winslet wore had structure that accentuated their hourglass figures.

The color-blocked nature of Maura Tierney’s dress creates the waistline for her.

Brie Larson and Jennifer Lawrence’s dresses create a waistline with the ingeniously awesome use of cut-outs in the dresses. So cooool.

Second thing? Most of the women also chose to show off their collarbones – those underratedly gorgeous bones – with the exception of JLaw. Lady Gaga and Rachel Bloom rocked similar off-the-shoulder boat necks that accentuated those collarbones in a particularly awesome way.

Kate Winslet and Brie Larson channeled a vintage flair and went for fabulous high-neck halter necklines.

Lastly, colors were mostly solid, bold, and jewel-toned, drawing more attention to the subtleties of the dress and the actors themselves (a win in my book!).  

The lovely outliers of this bunch – unique details that set the wearer apart – included Henson’s awesome cape, Tierney’s bold necklace, Lawrence’s bejeweled neck, and Stallone’s bluish tux. Yay for individuality!
