All Glitz and Glam at 2019 Golden Globes

2019 Golden GlobesLady Gaga in Maison Valentino was expected to ‘rule the carpet’ and did not disappoint. From her matching blue hair to the $10 million, 100k Tiffany custom necklace, we were in awe. She not only made her much anticipated grand entrance but also led the evening in the newest color of Spring that dominated much of the fashion, leading to a very             BLUE night, totally in color only!

A little late in my reporting due to the move in on Monday of my daughter, Crystin, back to Houston and into her new high rise living….I had to shelve my Golden Globe fashion reporting a bit, which was very good, actually,  because it gave me the time to really look and look again at the many beautiful fashion, jewelry and beauty trends  of the evening.

For those of us that grew up in Retailing, the Golden Globes grew to become the much anticipated award show and always my favorite.  Partially because it was the first of the awards season and led the way for what we could anticipate seeing in the others to follow but also because many of the trends that we see here will also preview for the consumer, just what the must haves will be for the coming Spring season.

Here are a few of the trends that we saw on Sunday night that were my stand-outs……

*Color was key for evening…..colors were very much in the blue hues, bold and soft, other palettes were soft and sheer from nude to blush to pinks, corals and into the reds. White is continuing to build in importance as an evening color and looked super chic when paired with black or navy….a combo that we never seem to tire of; Black was there but not at the forefront and the metallic of choice for this evening was in contrast to the award favorite gold and was much about silver. Beads were there and shown in a multitude of,  colors, sizes and shapes!

*Silhouettes were either bare……lots of strapless(to show off the beautiful jewels of the evening) and there was a return to the plunging v-neckline; contrasting this was a new appreciation for the long sleeve…..a design element that is always sexy to my eyes!

*Details were strong… was the evening of The Bow, as an accessory shown so many ways; Jewelry was stunning and lots of it; celebs at the Globes definitely took up the theory of “more is better” with many drop-dead pieces. Statement necklaces took the #1 spot usually owned by statement ears…..they were there also and both in color and in brilliant diamonds. The white diamond was definitely the “ice-ing” on the cake. (The Jewelry of the evening was so outstanding that much media attention has been drawn to it….at MRG, I was so enamored that I have devoted a story to just the ‘jewels of the night’.) link here!

*Hair and Make-up….hair was sleeker and more controlled than usual; fly away, wavy, curly do’s were not in abundance. Up-do’s were sleek and mostly controlled as Hair Accessories, primarily jewels with the exception of Nicole Kidman’s black velvet bow perfectly placed in her soft up-do.  The biggest make-up news of the night (which talked to me) was the RED Lip, beautifully worn by so many….best on Sandra Oh and Nicole Kidman.
