Blush! Rose! Electric! Pink is the undisputed color winner of the sartorial season, and Hollywood heavyweights aplenty trotted it out in stunning style at the 68th annual Golden Globe awards, held in Los Angeles this past Sunday.
Those who didn’t do the blushing hue were still perfectly on-trend, turning the red carpet into a runway of spring’s most beloved prints, shades, and silhouettes. The winners are…
Pretty in Pink: Proving that everything really does come up roses, Julianne Moore (in Lanvin), Lea Michelle (in Oscar de la Renta), Emma Stone and Claire Danes (both in Calvin Klein) donned the of-the-moment pink hue in varying shades, and ruled the red carpet.
Rogue Rouge: Christina Hendricks was bold and beautiful in ravishing red thanks to a Romona Keveza gown, and January Jones played matador to flocks of viewers in her revealing Versace number.
Black Swans: At the other end of the color spectrum, Eva Longoria and Piper Perabo prove that there is still nothing like the little—or in their case, long—black dress. Longoria’s plunging Zac Posen number was a knockout, and Perabo’s Oscar de la Renta gown had just the right amount of volume and whimsy, with the shoulder detail elevating her classic pick.
Dynasty, We Love You: Who doesn’t adore a strong-shouldered, sequined creation? Glittering and on-trend, Anne Hathaway and Angelina Jolie donned sparkling stunners, but the plunging back on Hathaway’s Georgio Armani Privé gown made hers a more fresh and sexy choice, as opposed to Jolie’s almost matronly Versace frock. (If your mother was Joan Collins, that is.)
Flower Power: The indie fashion girl’s print of choice? Floral, as evidenced by Natalie Portman (in Viktor & Rolf), and mother hen of the Brooklyn birds, Michelle Williams (in daisy-printed Valentino).
Cinderella Calling: As expected, the classic ball gown silhouette abounded. Mila Kunis aced it with a stunning emerald green Vera Wang, and Olivia Wilde paired her sparkling Marchesa confection with golden Christian Louboutin booties, keeping her ensemble safely on this side of fierce—rescuing it from possible Ice Skater Barbie doom where it may have landed, if worn by anyone else—especially a blonde. And while Catherine Zeta Jones looked regal in her green Monique Lhuillier gown, the formal vibe worked less well for others: we found Megan Fox’s blush hued Georgio Armani number to be more pageant princess than red carpet stunner.
Individualists, Unite: Annette Bening (in Tom Ford) and Tilda Swinton (in Jil Sander) prove that you needn’t be cookie cutter to be fashionable, and let their personalities guide their ensemble selection, to much acclaim.
