I watched the first really important awards show of the season, as a kick-off to a Spring, that is supposed to be a season of minimalism, I must say, I felt a lot of glamour from the ladies at the Globes Sunday night…Beads were everywhere, but I’ll talk about that later.
There are the color stories, which are the first thing I look for in a runway show or celeb outing and they were very obvious last night…there was the bright family of color such as the Red/Coral/Pink idea that has already been called the pop colors of early Spring. The beautiful jewel of emerald green was a favorite as seen on some of Hollywood’s biggest stars created by some of high fashion’s elite; Versace, Donna Karan and Monique Luilier. Also, subtly on the scene was the richness of Navy/Midnight/Cobalt Blues that I predict to gain in importance this Spring. Navy could truly be making its well-deserved comeback and could be the new black for evening. Wait a minute, what am I saying, nothing will ever replace Black for evening as last night’s Halle Berry and Eva Longoria dresses showed.
There was truly beading everywhere, much more than I anticipated for this season, but my favorites were the neutrals such as Anne Hathaways’ Armani Prive, all-over beaded, backless gown that felt like old Hollywood to me. Freshest, was the beading on sheer as seen with a soft vintage twist by Scarlet Johansen’s nude-colored gown, or Marchesa’s Bronze/Chocolate Brown bold tulle gown worn by Olivia Wilde or on one of my personal faves, Sandra Bullock’s, silver beading over blush-colored chiffon.
NOTE: Many of the runways for Spring and Fashion mags are showing blunt-cut bangs as one of the newest hair looks. Not sure if it’s the look I love the best for Sandra, so much of her great-looking face felt hidden but it’s becoming a big look for Spring as seen on Jennifer Aniston and Ellen Pompeo.
If there was a touch of minimalism on the Gals of the Globes it would be in the way of Jewelry. It appeared that the ladies would rather wear their glitz than jingle it from their ears? For years, Jewelry manufacturers and Buyers have used this event to predict what the public would want to wear for the upcoming season. However, if last night was an indication, I’d say they are going to have to create their own excitement and trends as nothing stood out as the next Jewelry Must-Have of the season.
All in all, I admit to being an awards-addict, and it’s all for the fashion. I love seeing the beautiful frocks from the world’s most creative designers come to life on that Red Carpet!
