Acting Fabulous: The Golden Globes Fashion

Clearly the Golden Globes are a big deal in the acting world. Actors account for a large percentage of A-list celebrities in the world. Celebrities are a major marketing tool in terms of endorsement. Therefore if a major celebrity wears a particular designer on the red carpet it is a huge promotional boost. And so the circle is completed: The Golden Globes are big deal in the fashion world.

Like or hate the above theorem, celebrity idolisation firmly exists and one must resign oneself to the fact that the essential question from the press to red carpet walkers is: "Who are you wearing?". 

Having spent yesterday reviewing every single outfit and doing my tax return (major productivity points) I have selected three looks that stood out as being appropriate, stylish and set to reward the brand. 

Amy Poehler

Comedy Actress Amy Poehler walked the red carpet in a Stella McCartney tuxedo. By going shirtless she confidently pulled off the plunging neckline of the tailored jacket which was a major feature of the Saint Laurent SS13 collection. It is worth mention that this is an amazing alternative to wearing a dress to your next big event, it is simple and easy to recreate, just make sure the jacket fits damn well! Stella McCartney will no doubt gain sales having covered the shoulders of a co-presenter of the awards and was the only non-dress look of the evening (excluding all the men). 

Anne Hathaway

White, clean, delicate. The clothing choice Anne Hathaway's stylist made worked perfectly.   Thanks to her scalping for her role in Les Mis, Anne has brought the "pixie" look to attention. The look was so aesthetically pleasing that Harper's Bazaar featured Anne as their cover model for the February issue. The red carpet outfit is actually taken from Chanel's SS09 Haute Couture show but the look comes together so well on Anne that I think white and two pieces are going to be propelled back into popularity and secures Chanel's position as a market leader that produces timeless pieces. 

Julianne Moore
Julianne wears custom Tom Ford

Julianne revealed on an interview with E! that she requested Tom Ford make her a dress and I am pleased that she was so audacious to do so. The result is a monochrome dress with long sleeves and a high, flat cut neckline with an elegant dropped back. Monochrome is massive for SS13 and while many state we should not be dictated by trends, I would call monochrome a classic style and this dress is a prime example of how monochrome is wonderfully flattering and timeless.  

I'd try out one of these looks at your next big event, although you might have to settle for the budget version, not all of us have Tom Ford's direct email address...Lucky bitch! :))
