What She Wears: Golden Globes

It seems like only yesterday I was writing my first post on WhatSheWears.ie and what a manic time to launch the site it was, slap bang in the middle of awards season last year! The year has flown by and here I am in 2010, excited as ever to be bringing you today’s installment of What She Wears: Golden Globes.

Dominated by nude colours (I wasn’t a fan) and fish tail or figure hugging shapes (yes please, let’s see some more of these at the Oscars); here are some of my favourites from the 2010 Golden Globes Awards:

What: Nominee for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series in True Blood

She: Kiwi actor Anna Paquin

Wears: Stella McCartney dress and shoes, Alexander McQueen skull clutch (€844, Netaporter), diamond and nnamel snake bracelet and diamond drop Earrings by Stephen Russell vintage jewels. I really loved the body skimming, column shaped gown (sooo sparkly!) but didn’t think the black shoes matched (not visble in this pic, but otherwise very visible as there’s a huge slit in the skirt of the dress)– Anna must really like Stella McCartney to wear her shoes AND dress.

What: Nominee for Best Supporting Actress

She: Penelope Cruz

Wears: a figure-hugging, off-the-shoulder lace Giorgio Armani Privé mermaid dress, Chopard diamond earrings and ring.

Borrowed bling from Chopard is nothing strange for such red carpet events, but it was the lace detail and flattering mermaid shape that I loved most on “Pe” on Sunday night, catapulting her into my favourite look from the Golden Globes.

What: Nominee for Best Actress in a TV series Comedy or Musical

She: Courtney Cox

Wears: Black strapless column Victoria Beckham dress (€3799, Netaporter) with diamante detail on the waist.

Streamlined silhouettes were commonplace at this year’s Golden Globes (hardly a “big” dress in sight except for Glee actress Lea Michele in Oscar de la Renta) and Cox looked well in Posh’s design. Although Victoria wasn’t in attendance herself, she must be chuffed with such a massive seal of approval for her designs in Hollywood.

What: For her fine performance in Avatar

She: Zoe Saldana

Wears: Louis Vuitton cranberry coloured dress with ruffles and pleats, Brian Atwood Wagner black satin shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Salvatore Ferragamo black clutch handbag.

On paper this sounds like a complicated dress but the colour against Zoe’s skin was such a perfect match that she pulled off the feminine details on the dress perfectly.

    I’m not usually a fan of nude either but I thought Drew Barrymore really pulled it off with her dress, hair and makeup (red lipstick). Great to see it’s dress season again!

  2. Kate Says:

    Hi AnnMarie, Couldn’t agree more with your choices. Penelope was without a doubt the best dressed, Courtney a close second. I did also like Emily Blunt’s D&G dress but she has to learn to match her foundation to her fake tan! I also agree with Aoife above – Drew got it right for once! Not sure about the embellishment detail on her hip though.

  3. Annemarie Says:

    Everyone was raving about Drew Barrymore but I honestly didnt like her dress (makeup yes), probably more to do with the “thing” sticking out of her hip as you said Kate! Emily Blunt was my next choice but didnt fit in the above photo, I liked the pink dress, she looked stunning and has come along way since appearing in The Devil Wears Prada.

  4. whisty Says:

    I have to concur with Aoife and Katie, Drew;s dress was fab! With the subtle hair and make-up she ooozeed glamour and class. Emily Blunt also delish. But, hello Anna Paquin, you look smashing in Stella McCartney! Love!

  5. Aoifs Says:

    Yes the shelf thing on the side was a bit odd but I didn’t think it took over Drew’s dress.
    Loved Emily Blunt, it was a lovely bit of colour.
    Penelope and Courtney were definite winners – can’t beat a great black dress.
