A Golden Glance

"Look for the woman in the dress. If there is no woman, there is no dress." - Coco Chanel 

The 69th annual Golden Globe Awards took place in Hollywood last night, and while it may not exactly be a wedding related affair, it is most certainly a star-studded fete of the finest fashion and we simply could not resist sharing our thoughts on the copious couture.

Our best dressed list includes Kate Beckinsale, who looked flawless (as usual) in a strapless, pale blush chiffon and lace gown by Roberto Cavalli, paired with Lorraine Schwartz gems and Casadei pumps; Jessica Alba, who dazzled in a head-to-toe sparkly lavender number by Gucci and Bulgari baubles; and the fiery Emma Stone, who rocked a beautifully belted, plunging plum Lanvin dress, along with shoes and jewels by the famed designer.

Our choices for ‘runners up’? Claire Danes, who wore a gorgeously glam black and white (a colour combo expected to make major appearances in spring 2012), open back J. Mendel  dress; newcomer Shailene Woodley made her mark in an incredible Marchesa gown and Tabitha Simmons heels; the ladies of Modern Family looked lovely as always - Julie Bowen in a pale pink Reem Acra and Sofia Vergara in a navy Vera Wang (we’ve got soft spots for these designers!), and last but definitely not least, Miss Golden Globe, Rainey Qualley, wowed us on the stage in Alberto Makali.

We're opting for a different approach than that of Joan Rivers and the Fashion Police by keeping it classy and skipping our picks for the ‘worst-dressed’.

Can't wait to see what these stunners will rock at the upcoming Oscars!

Until next time,

A & S
