The long awaited red carpet moment at the 72nd Golden Globe awards and this is what happened…
As 3 of my favourites, this is extremely disappointing. Left to Right; Bridesmaid‘s Melissa McCarthy wears a completely original and somewhat hideous ensemble made with items from her wardrobe, sewn together. Homemade is all good and well, but when it looks like that, its most definitely is a no go! Don’t get me wrong, the top isn’t half bad but the way in which it has been attached to that awful frilly skirt completely ruins the outfit. Minus the frills and maybe an A-line instead, the hilarious and loveable actress could have made “homemade” work on the red carpet.
In the middle, is Kerry Washington. Known for her dominant role as Olivia Pope on Scandal, Washington is more often than not, dressed very chic, classy and some would say conservative; both on and off set; so what happened here? Typically in the spot light at these events for her sense of style, amazing outfits and fashion forward appearance, Kerry Washington’s stylist made a major error on Sunday night. Wearing an off the shoulders Mary Katrantzou dress, Miss Washington looks extremely stiff, almost awkward and certainly out of place (compared to her usual “stunning-ness”) at this year’s Golden Globes.
Finally, on the right is Orange is the New Black‘s Taryn Manning. Looking completely different to her character, Tiffany ‘Pennsatucky’ Doggett from Netflix‘s favourite; OITNB, Manning destroys this Oscar De La Renta gown. As an all time admirer of the late, De La Renta’s work and avid OITNB fan, seeing this actually upsets me. The dress just does not go with her body shape-it does nothing for her (not without alterations anyway). Furthermore, she could have worn some different shoes; perhaps a colour pop and/or a stand-out clutch to at least try and make what should be a fabulous dress, work! What’s worse is that she has the cheek to wear peep-toe shoes and not even paint her toes; its common knowledge; if your not going to dress them up, cover them up! Just saying.
So all in all; a loveable and personal favourite actress of mines, Melissa McCarthy, proved not to be so funny. As a Scandal obsessed fan and lover of all things Kerry Washington, i’m disappointed in her recent stunt and last but not least (well maybe), another representation of a TV show favourite (OITNB) has failed to impress off screen and made an Oscar De La Renta look bad. #SayNoToTheDress
