Prim’s Pick of The Golden Globes

Yippeee! Red carpet awards season is upon us, it always makes the dreary beginning of a year a bit less gloomy! Last night was The Golden Globes in Hollywood, and DID you SEEEE the dresses?! Wow-weeee! So. Much. Pretty. I like to mark out my most favourite ones and it would seem I always end up choosing the same designers, my taste is obviously pretty well established! I love structure in red carpet gowns, I love quirky details and I love it when a girl in a dress just takes your damn breath away.

Here’s my favourites ¬†from the night;

Rosie Huntington-whiteley in Atelier Versace

– so utterly feminine, adore the delicacy and it’s sooo sexy.rw

Jennifer Lopez in Giambatista Valli

– UH-MAAAZING colour, very 1940’s, Valli is always a favourite of mine.Jennifer-Lopez

Jamie Alexander in GENNY

– great colour, great volume, great neckline…and it has POCKETS!!Jaimie-Alexander

Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Zuhair Murad

– sparkle, great shape, great plunge and again, pockets! Murad is a constant hit for me.jd

Gina Rodriguez in Zac Posen

– quite possibly THE best red carpet Designer in my eyes, Posen aces it here, as always.Gina-Rodriguez

Kate Bosworth in Dolce & Gabanna

– Pink. Sequins. Nothing else needs saying.Kate-Bosworth

Catriona Balfe in Alexander McQueen

– fluttery, feminine but with classic McQueen flamboyance!Caitriona-Balfe

Portia Doubleday in Naeem Khan

– similar cut to others I love, but in matte silver sequins, like a suit of armour, wow.portia-doubleday-0f965698-c08d-4e3e-b6c0-709fc5af64eb

Oh Oscar! The Dresses Are So Divine!

As a girl who is ALL about dresses, I kinda can’t help but get a little giddy when it comes to the red carpet of The Oscars, that once a year date when us Brits can sit up late into the night wearing our pj’s to swoon at the glamour and beauty of Hollywood! Oh the prettiness! Dresses galore! And, the faces, the jewells, the hair, the shoes … it’s all so darn dreamy! For this years red carpet there was a delicious flurry of beads, sequins and embellishment, plunging necklines, and lots of white, pastels and golds. Reliably sophisticated and elegant. As it’s such a timely event it does seem a little stiff and straight and I keep my peepers out for the ladies who opt for something with a little quirk or attitude, but hey, I love classic glamour too… heck, I just freakin’ love a posh frock!

I find there’s always a handful of screen stars whose look I continually covet and am slightly bias toward, coz I just outright love everything about them; Marion Cotillard, Cate Blanchett and Emma Stone had it nailed for me before I even saw their looks for the night, I just know they will rock it. Every. Single. Time.

My most favourite 10 looks from The Oscars 2015 are these;

Scarlett Johansson- Atelier Versace

Scarlett Johansson in Atelier Versace. A great shape, the fabric looks almost like a vintage crepe, the green was a good stand-out choice and the beaded necklace is just damn perfect styling.

Lady GaGa-Custom Azzedine Alaia

I’m not a massive Lady Gaga fan but I love the texture and the exaggerated stiffness of the sleeves, she perfectly blended classic with a modern sharpness.

Rosamund Pike-Givenchy

Rosamund Pike in Givenchy, just, oh my, just so beautiful…that waist detail!

Emma Stone- Elie Saab

Emma Stone in Elie Saab, in my opinion, just about the most beautiful girl in the whole wide World, and this golden gown makes her glow, big time.

Marion Cotillard-Dior Couture

Marion Cotillard in Dior Couture, I ADORE this, Marion isn’t afraid to steer slightly off centre with her fashion choices, this is just divine.

Cate Blanchett-John Galliano

Cate Blanchett in John Galliano with Tiffany and Co. necklace, so fresh and minimal, her elegance is mesmerizing; a brilliant choice.

Hannah Bagshawe-McQueen

Eddie Redmayne’s wife Hannah Bagshawe wore McQueen, a faultless choice for a girl who is being catapulted into the spotlight with her new husband; simple but with signature McQueen detailing of feathers and jewells, standing out with an understated beauty.

Sienna Miller-Oscar De La Renta

Sienna Miller in Oscar De La Renta, so simple, I love the velvet ribbon detail, her make-up looks a little heavy on the contouring, but, she looks absolutely beautiful.

Jennifer Lopez-Elie Saab

Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab is probably the most classic ‘Oscars’ dress of my choices, it’s pretty dreamy, there’s nothing I don’t adore about it.

Rita Ora-Custom Marchesa

Her usual style doesn’t make my eyes pop but, in this custom Marchesa gown she looked awesome, the silhouette is just superb.
