Pastels and nudes seem to have been the palette of choice at this years' Golden Globe Awards. Emma Stone looked perfect in her peach-colored Calvin Klein dress and Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, while Helena Bonham Carter looked crazy-good in Vivienne Westwood and different colored heels. A very pregnant Natalie Portman looked very stunning in a pink Victor & Rolf strapless gown and Leighton Meester, like always, looked amazing in a long-sleeve Burberry dress. Claire Danes also chose to wear Calvin Klein and Anne Hathaway looked beautiful in an Armani Prive gown.
Golden Globes 2011: We Actually Liked a Lot of the Dresses
Carey Mulligan has changed red carpet fashion. I say this on the day after the Golden Globes not because she wowed me last night--she wasn't even there. It's because ever since Mulligan wore that Prada dress to last year's Oscars, the red carpet has gotten a bit more interesting. Of course there were risk takers before she the pulled it off: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kirsten Dunst, Michelle Williams, and Sofia Coppola have looked pulled together and cool over the past decade. But here's why Carey's different: She's not cool. She's pretty and smart and admirable, but she's not particularly slick or hip. She's made not wearing a nude, sparkly dress okay for non-hipsters. She's even made it necessary. Last night, there were more than ten dresses which I thought, even if they weren't perfect, were good. And interesting. Usually, I'd say the number is more like three.
