screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-22-46-49 …Ms Tracee Ellis Ross. She did it!

The first black woman in 33 years, to win Best Actress in a TV series Comedy!
(And she was wearing Zuhair Murad- my favourite!)

From the days of Girlfriends, I have enjoyed watching this woman and over the last year I have also become a Black-ish fan. I have followed it through each season, episode after episode; so to find out Ross had not only been nominated but won a Golden Globe is great – and to be the first black woman in over 30 years to win such an award is phenomenal! Congratulations Tracee (Joan/Bow)!

Beautiful, full of character and forever wearing a killer grin, Ms Ross is quite literally WINNING!

Ok, so not quite golden, but yellow is close enough right?! Although, its never my first port of call in a gown, these ladies made it work (yellow that is) and equally looked stunning at last night’s 74th Golden Globe awards; as they graciously strutted down the red carpet, before stopping to smile and pose!

From the top left, clockwise; Natalie Portman wears a deep pastel yellow, almost-mustard floor length (three-quarter) sleeved gown, by Prada. Her look was very simple, elegant and I want to say; quite medieval!

Next, is the stunning Scandal star, Ms Kerry Washington. Personally, I do not favour this dress. However, Washington (who just had her second baby a few months ago) looked absolutely radiant down the red carpet in a Dolce & Gabbana dress. The see-through pale-golden yellow midi floral dress, was finished with angel wing-like shoulder cuffs and what looks like a broach embellished side belt (thing).Granted, its different and not really my cup of tea per se, but Kerry never fails to impress and (as I said) made it work!

In the bottom right hand corner; Hollywood walk of fame’s latest star; Viola Davis, wore the brightest yellow of them all and blissfully smiled for the camera (and later glided to the stage) in Michael Kors. The classic Greek style, floor length, one-shoulder gown, was a tasteful and subtle approach to “glitz & glam”.

Last but not least, my favourite (dress not person); Reese Witherspoon; in a pastel yellow Atelier Versace gown! Although its quite Prom-come-bridesmaid, I really like this dress. The classy length together with the saucy side slit, and the modern take to the classic sweetheart neckline; gives off a sexy sophisticated look; and completed with some simple jewellery, its picture perfect!

It turns out yellow isn’t so bad after all and hey, for the Golden Globes, its pretty appropriate wouldn’t you say?!

…Last night’s 73rd Golden Globes Awards saw many celebrities take the red carpet in an array of fabulous designers. The females in particular stole the show and looked amazing in their various gowns. It seems white was pretty popular and came in a handful of styles, cuts and and necklines.

Lily James and Saoirse Ronan looked oh so elegant as they glided across the red carpet in their flowy floor length gowns with nipped in high-waists. James wore Marchesa while Ronan wore Yves Saint Laurent. Also in couture Saint Laurent, Jane Fonda looked fabulous in an all white (accessories included) figure hugging long sleeved gown, finished off with some questionable ruffles. Alicia Vikander also flaunted some ruffles;  but in a much smaller degree; as they delicately embellished the neckline of her Louis Vuitton apron gown. Last but not least, and the sexiest of them all; both Eva Longoria and Taraji kept it simple and stylish in sexy-sophisticated, figure hugging floor length gowns. Taraji wore all Stella McCartney (teeny tiny Falabella bag included) with a boob-tube cut and classy cape. Whereas, Longoria wore a Georges Hobeika conservative dress, hand embellished at the hips/ neckline and finished with an elegant front slit.

Capes are certainly in this season and were seen worn by many women last night in colours beyond white. However out of the gorgeous white gowns below, half of them were accompanied by matching capes; completing each look and making the women all the more stunning! #Capes

I think we can all agree that Jennifer Lopez looked amazing last night at this year’s Golden Globes. I wouldn’t naturally consider yellow for an evening gown, however Jlo certainly proved me wrong, as she pulled it off!

Wearing a caped Giambattista Valli haute couture gown and 200 carats of diamonds in accessories, Lopez looked absolutely stunning. As well as her choice of wardrobe, Jlo’s hair and makeup was on point; simple, elegant and drop-dead-gorgeous!

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

Even the unborn celebrity babies of 2014 made a “debut” onto the red carpet at yesterdays Golden Globes Awards Ceremony in Beverly Hills. The soon-to-be mothers looked amazing in their designer gowns; showing off their bumps. From Scandal’s Kerry Washington, to Hollywood’s  Olivia Wilde and Drew Barrymore, to the wives (and girlfriends) of Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba; all the women looked positively radiant as they stepped onto the red carpet.

Last night’s 71st Golden Globes award ceremony saw an array of glamorous and ooh so fabulous high fashion. From Armani Prive, Ralph Lauren, Prabal Gurung and Carolina Herrera to Oscar De La Rental, Tom Ford and Christian Dior; actors and actresses stepped foot on to the red carpet in nothing but the best. It goes without saying that there were individuals who were really working it and looked quite literally, a million dollars (well almost) nevertheless, there were others who just would not be considered for the “best dressed” title.

One the thing that always raises a question for me, is whether or not wearing red on the red carpet really works. Most of the time the women on Hollywood look fabulous, but stood still for those few minutes to pose for the cameras on the red carpet (wearing a long red gown), always seems to clash (to me); it’s just too much for the eye. Sometimes I can’t even tell where the dress finishes. With this said, Emma Watson did it for me this year. Going for sexy sophisticated, she looked amazing in her (nearly) completely backless red Dior dress.

But what does every body else think? Does it work? Red on the red carpet?
