71st Golden Globe awards show 2014: red carpet dresses
The real winner of this year's edition of the much longed for Golden Globe awards is the colour red, in all its declinations.
From fierce red to crimson, from deep cherry to scarlet, many a diva choose to wrap up in the colour of love and passion at the 71st Golden Globe Award premier last Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Los Angeles.
Unusual choice for the occasion, one may say, as red is normally avoided beacuse it doesn't help defining the figure of the wearer over red carpets, especially on the photographic and television medium. But last Sunday night premier seemed to defy the untold rule.
As predicted by many fashion forecaster, it was Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave to dominate the red carpet this January. Indeed, Nyong’o earned her fashion buzz in a breathtaking scarlet gown by Ralph Lauren, which left many a fashion expert more than impressed.
Warden Neil, head designer and stylist for the award show said: “It was stunning. It was the most beautiful red I’ve ever seen,” and he added: “It was a gorgeous shade on her.”
This is a very relevant comment because, as we all know, it's the combination of the outfit and the wearer that makes that perfect (or less perfect) result. So thumbs up to Lupita Nyong’o, not only an amazing newly discovered talent, but also a positive trend setter from now on.
Also impressed with the young Kenyan actress and filmmaker was costume designer Janie Bryant: “I loved the red and the drama with the cape,” she said about the new diva's gown.
There were also successful new takes on black, silvery whites and deep, rich greens last Sunday on the Golden Globes' red carpet: impossible to miss out, Cate Blanchett looked simply awesome in a sophisticated black lace piece by Giorgio Armani.
The actress, winner for Blue Jasmine, amazed the public with elegance, wearing the gorgeous Armani gown made of Chantilly lace and completely bare on the back
But standing out among the darker tones there was, again, a new talent ready to steal the scene: Jennifer Lawrence, winner of a best-supporting-actress award for her role in American Hustle arrived on the red carpet with a white strapless Dior with thin, black ribbons.
