Golden Globe Fashion 2014 Flashback! Get Ready - Golden Globe 72nd Awards - Sunday, January 11, 2015



 The Movies & The Telly

 
 
Birdman, Selma, The Imitation Game, Boyhood
 
 
 

True Detective - HBO

 

The Ladies

 
 
Amy Poehler & Tina Fey
  
 
 
Once again, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are at the helm of the 72nd Golden Globe shindig this coming Sunday, January 11, 2014.  Fey and Poehler are splendid in this role and always a treat to watch. The stakes are high for them this year since movies were extraordinarily flat for 2014.  Yet, television series are soaring to the sky in popularity.   There isn't one film that stands out amongst the rest.  Last year movies were top notch and stellar entertainment:  Wolf of Wall Street, 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Blue Jasmine, Captain Phillips, Gravity, Philomena, Rush, Dallas Buyers Club, The Great Gatsby, Saving Mr. Banks, All is Lost, Nebraska and August Osage County among a few others.   In comparison, this year movies are possibly weak (haven't seen them all and some are releasing on January 16, 2015) in terms of award winning and memorable films. 

Films and Actor and Actress nominations for 2014 Golden Globes  include: Boyhood, Foxcatcher, The Imitation Game, Selma, The Theory of Everything, Big Eyes, Wild, Cake, Gone Girl, Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, St. Vincent, A Most Violent Year etc.  As for television series - well - hats off to all:  Fargo, Ray Donovan, House of Cards, The Affair, Homeland, How to Get Away with Murder, Veep, True Detective, American Horror Story, Freak Show, Nurse Jackie and so many more are at top of mind.  Sadly, the film Unbroken was not nominated. Nor was Peter Dinklage nominated for Game of Thrones or anyone from the cast of Sons of Anarchy. For shame! However, the show must go on and the fashion game will commence next weekend!
 
Seriously really who can forget this scene from Game of Thrones, HBO, Season 4 with Peter Dinklage as Trion Lancaster:
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Fashion

 

Jessica Chastain

 
In 2014 the stellar fashionista that stopped the presses was Jessica Chastain in a simple Givenchy black gown with a sweetheart neckline.  This year will not disappoint as there are major fashion doyennes that will stroll down the red carpet.  The Forever Chic Style fashionistas slated to make a grand entrance on the red carpet on Sunday, January 11, 2015 are: Jessica Chastain, Keira Knightley, Emma Stone, Amy Adams, Jennifer Aniston, Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon, Helen Mirren, Viola Davis, Claire Danes, and many more.  Stay fashionably tuned!

Here is the Forever Chic Style post from last year, 71st Golden Globe 2014, January 12, 2014 affair published on January 14, 2014.  And, the winner was.....
 
 

Pray Tell....Do You Remember??? 

 _______________________________

The 71st Golden Globe soiree was held on Sunday, January 12, 2014 with the infamous Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the helm to toast and roast the star studded affair. And, they did it again!!!  The audience roared with laughter, while these two fashionistas rocked on the stage with witty banter and antics. Unlike previous years, this particular affair was graced with the presence of  a multitude of famous A listers Hollywood actors and actresses such as Robert Redford, Jon Voight, Jacqueline Bisset, Bruce Dern, Michael Douglas, Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Jessica LangeHelen Mirren, Emma Thompson, Leonardo Decaprio and many more. All were dressed to the nines and ready for the elegant and wildly fun event to start.  Prior to the sit down gala with cocktails and food, the fashion conscious from the movie and television industry arrived in limousines and posed before the paparazzi and spoke to the appropriate television show hosts.   The sun came out after a down pour or rather a sewage pipe that broke on the red carpet midday before the arrival of the star studded Hollywood elite.  With the sunshine came a prism of glorious colors in reds, turquoise, corals, blues along with whites and blacks in form fitting silhouettes with deep v-necks, styled hair and minimal jewels.  The screen sirens gingerly walked down the magical carpet with heads held high in a rainbow array of hues.  Of course, there were several adorned in rather interesting and not flattering attire.  Just who bedazzled and who made a few tragic fashion bombs?  Who were the Ladies in Waiting, The Queen of the Evening and The Frumpy Frog?
 

 Camera, Lights & Action! Rainbow of Fashion!

 

Forever Chic Style -  The Ladies in Waiting

Top of the Forever Chic Style List though not Queen!



Kerry Washington


7.  Oh So Pregnant and Gorgeous - Kerry Washington:  Washington stepped out in a sensational white Balenciaga gown, which enhanced her pregnant silhouette.  She glowed on the red carpet and out shined fellow pregnant actresses Olivia Wilde and Drew Barrymore.


Naomi Watts


6.  The Real Mrs. Donovan - Silver Perfection - Naomi Watts:  Watts lit up the red carpet in a high voltage silhouette defining silver gown by Tom Ford.  The halter dress and blunt cut blond hair with understated makeup and gold accessories were regal and eye catching.  An example of less is best.

Sofia Vergara


5.  Modern Yet So Scarlett O'- Sofia Vergara: Vergara understands fashion and once again is a stylish traffic stopping maven in a Zac Posen sweetheart bodice black gown.  The full skirt, she referred to as a tent, is balanced fittingly with a heavy turquoise 60's daisy necklace.  Back to her natural honey blond hair with red lips added a final touch that screamed drama.   A nice surprise instead of the usual fishtail concoction.    


Margot Robbie


4.  Wolf or Rather a Fox - Margot Robbie:  Margot Robbie, Wolf of Wall Street, was dipped in a white fitted Gucci plunging v-neck gown with green sparkling beading and thigh high slit.  The effect was polished, playful and so exceptionally gorgeous that one couldn't help but conjure up the image of Belfort's wife in the Wolf of Wall Street.  The hair, simple makeup and decadent emerald green shoes were spotlight riveting.


Cate Blanchett


3. Black Jasmine - Cate Blanchett:  This Valentino high neck lace black number radiated on the talented and breathtaking Blanchett.  The red lips and flawless makeup was divine though the hair was a bit strange being pinned under.  Blanchett is a true lady opposite of her broken and sad character in Blue Jasmine, for which she won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama.  Well deserved!  Here's to you Cate!


Amy Adams


2.  The Lady Sydney Prosser in the Flesh - Amy Adams:  Adams evoked her character, Lady Sydney Prosser, from American Hustle in this exquisite Valentino maroon plunging V-neck with true red flowing skirt and drop necklace. The effect was smashing and brilliantly played.   The hair updo, minimal makeup, stunning matching cape combined with the dress was fresh, floaty and feminine.  And, more importantly, the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy was well deserved!


Lupita Nyong'o


1.  The Spotlight Stealing Beauty  - Lupita Nyong'o: Stop the press!  When Nyong'o glided down the red carpet, camera's flashed and people stared in awe.   The Ralph Lauren off the shoulder gown in red tomato with an attached cape was absolutely ravishing. The dress was similar to Gwyneth Paltrow's white Tom Ford ensemble from the Academy Awards 2012.  The smile, makeup, hair and completed the look on this stunningly beautiful young woman who played Patsy in 12 years a Slave.  And, if looks, acting chops and exquisite apparel were not enough, Nyong'o is extremely eloquent and a recent graduate of Yale University.  Now, that is truly impressive!  All hail this accomplished young lady.

Forever Chic Style - The Queen of the Evening

Effortlessly confident, smart, sophisticated elegance, poise and manners
And, the award goes too....


The Queen - Jessica Chastain


Jessica Chastain


The Queen of the Golden Globes 2014 - Jessica Chastain:  This Zero Dark Thirty, Golden Globe Best Actress in a Drama 2013, strolled down the red carpet in 2014 capturing all of the attention.  Chastain is beloved by the fashion world because of her curves, glorious red hair and silky complexion.  Last year, at the Golden Globes her dress was a mishap and this year she went for gold.  She did not disappoint in a simple black textured Givenchy gown with a sweetheart neckline.  The ravishing red hair was swept back combined with a well appointed Bulgari necklace, red nails and red lips created a movie star.  Yes, color was ever present, yet a figure hugging black gown always makes a statement.  Chastain, an accomplished actress, has a strong presence and was the Queen of the evening.  All hail the Queen!

Frumpy Frog Stepsisters

  
 
Julia Roberts
 

3.  The Maid's Uniform - Julia Roberts: Roberts wore a black Dolce & Gabbana gown with a white blouse underneath or so it seemed.  The combination reminded one of a pinafore that a maid would wear on Downton Abbey.   Pour me some tea please!



Paula Patton
 
2. The Ruffles Attack - Paula Patton:  This Stephane Rolland concoction was lopsided with the huge ruffle down one side.  Patton looked stunning in white with a bob haircut and white jewelry.  Sadly, the ruffle was a peacock distraction. 


Jennifer Lawrence


1.  The Broomstick - Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle):  The white off the shoulder Christian Dior frock with black bands at the waist and below the derriere was not flattering on this extraordinary Golden Globe Best Supporting Actress winner.   Lawrence's pixie hair cut and make up was beautiful.  However, everything else from jewelry to the strategically placed black belts is a major disaster though overall she a social media sensation.  Every bad press apparently is good press!  Hopefully, for the Oscars, Ms. Lawrence will really take a moment and step up her fashion game.  Enough off the shoulder garments. This young beauty who  dazzles on screen can also be adorned in something spectacular. 

 

Forever Chic Style - The Frumpy Frog

And, the award goes too....



Sandra Bullock

 

The Disco Tablecloth - Sandra Bullock (Gravity):  The Prabel Gurung gown was a complete debacle though the satin pink v-neck was pretty against Bullock's skin and combined with her makeup.   However, the wrinkled dipped sky blue at the hemline seemed out of place or rather out in orbit.  Perhaps if the blue had been the same pink as the bodice and the hem was floor sweeping then the ensemble would have landed firmly down on planet Earth.  Overall, the combination of pink, black and blue was a mishit.  Let's hope at the Oscars, Bullock, will pull out all stops and steer herself back into being a stunning diva on the red carpet.



 

"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."

— Audrey Hepburn
