Get Inspired with Fashions from 72nd Annual Golden Globes!
Third time co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kicked off the 72nd Golden Globes Award Show in the comedic fashion that they are so well known for. This was their third time hosting and they started the show with lots of laughs, teasing various actors and actresses, and even going as far as cracking jokes about North Korea’s threat if Sony released the movie The Interview. Huge winners of the night included Birdman, Fargo, and, with 3 Golden Globes including the biggest award of the night for Best Motion Picture Drama, Boyhood.
I realize that many of our readers may never make a gown like the one worn by Jennifer Lopez (one of the most talked about looks of the night for its revealing and sexy silhouette), but awards shows are a great way to see what is trending with silhouettes, colors, and embellishments. Here’s a recap of this year’s Golden Globe fashions to help inspire you with your future sewing adventures.
TAKE THE PLUNGE OR GO ONE SHOULDER
One of the most recurring silhouette trends was the deeply plunging neckline. Stars like Kate Hudson, Sienna Miller (American Sniper, Foxcatcher), Jessica Chastain, and Jennifer Lopez (as seen above) tested the daring look. Although the style can be too revealing or considered scandalous for some, you can attempt this look with a little more stability and coverage by using a piece of mesh to hold the dress in place.

Another popular silhouette that appeared at the 2015 Golden Globes was a one-shoulder gown. Stars like Amy Adams, Heidi Klum (seen on next page), and Amal Alamuddin wore this classy look. An interesting thing to note is the strap was on all of their left shoulders. These ladies all looked beautiful but I personally believe this unbalanced look has been used too much and is starting to get outdated.

SHINE BRIGHT OR GO ON RED ALERT
One of the hottest color trends right now are metallic tones. Whether you opt for glamorous silver or an elegant copper, it’s hard to go wrong with a metallic fabric. Celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon and Julianne Moore glowed on the red carpet in their metallic frocks. Go ahead and make that metallic garment you’ve been dreaming about because now is your chance to sparkle at your next event.

Canary yellow also was a trending color at the 72nd Golden Globes award ceremony. Celebrities like Taylor Swift, Jenna Dewan Tatum, and Naomi Watts all strutted their stuff in this striking color.

There’s something about the color red that just screams classic, sexy, and red carpet ready. A-listers Helen Mirren, Allison Williams, Heidi Klum, and Viola Davis set the red carpet on fire with their red gowns.

Black, as usual, was seen frequently because how can you go wrong with a color as chic as black?

SPARKLES AND BELTS
Embellishments and accessories were a key part to many red-carpet looks. Emma Stone worked a jumpsuit that had a jewel-embellished strapless top over a pair of black trousers. Helen Mirren, Sienna Miller, and Ellie Kemper all had different types of intricate beading on their gowns too. Belt accessories were also seen repeatedly, cinching in at the natural waist to enhance a curvy silhouette.

FABRIC FAUX PAS
While there were many amazing looks, it wouldn’t be a Hollywood event if there weren’t some big fashion no-no’s. My least favorite look was Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) who wore a single color suit that could only be described as nude. The color choice had no contrast between the different pieces of his suit and just washed out his pale skin. Although he did spice it up with some funky sneakers, they seemed inappropriate for the occasion and just added another aspect to his ensemble that didn’t work for the evening. As for the females, one look I disliked was Kristen Wiig’s choice of gown. I felt that the silhouette and fabric choice was not flattering to her petite figure.
My all-time favorite look from the night was Kate Beckinsale who shone on the red carpet in an Elie Saab neutral gray gown with beautiful silver sequins on the bodice.
