Golden Globes 2016

Has it actually been two years since my last post? Time flies when you’re not blogging, I suppose. Thursday morning marks the announcement of Oscar nominations, but between the Oscars (February 28th) and now, there are a number of opportunities for Hollywood to turn it out on the red carpet. Tonight’s Golden Globe Awards got things off to a nice start. As always there was plenty of black and white, lots of sparkle, and a nice mix of jewel tones… no major surprises or unusual trends.

The breakout style star, and for whom there has been much buzz was Alicia Vikander – who managed to make a frilly, apron front, Louis Vuitton dress look both modern and super chic! Other favorites of mine included Jaimie Alexander, Taraji P. Henson, Lady Gaga (very Marilyn Monroe), Corinne Foxx (this year’s Miss Golden Globe), and perennial style icons Julianne Moore and Cate Blanchett. There were, perhaps, a few style missteps, but nothing that struck me as too catastrophic!

Here is a rundown of my favorites, some highlights, and (shhhh) maybe a few low points.
