Golden Globes Red Carpet Favorites

I know you are probably sick of seeing all the “trends” and “favorites” from the Golden Globes red carpet, but my feeling is: better late than never. There were some strong efforts out there that should be honored in all their glory. So, here we go!

Best All Around: Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren Collection. Simple makeup and accessories. Absolute perfection. There was no point for anyone to really walk the red carpet after her.

Best Structured: Emilia Clarke in Proenza Schouler. Would you expect anything sub-par from Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons? Besides, it’s hard for me to dislike anything PS.

Best Lace: Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive. Stunning. That pretty much sums it up. And that back!?!

Best White: Margot Robbie in (custom) Gucci. Major props for this first timer with her emerald shoes and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels.

Best Sparkle: Naomi Watts in Tom Ford. It must be difficult to be one half of the most gorgeous couple ever. I feel so terrible for you, Naomi (you beautiful goddess, you).

Best Red: Julie Bowen in Carolina Herrera. Since Lupita won my top pick of the night, my second favorite red gown goes to Miss “I have the sickest body ever” Bowen. Plus, I loved this entire Carolina Herrera collection. Red, it should be noted, was one of the hottest colors at the Globes this year, sported by Amy Adams, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Taylor Swift and the like.

Best Surprising Color: Caitlin FitzGerald in Emilia Wickstead. I don’t even know who this chick is, but I will sure as hell be on style lookout from now on.

Best Preggers: Olivia Wilde in Gucci. I am probably going to get shot for going against Olivia Pope on this one, but I couldn’t even pull off Wilde’s look on my best day while not pregnant. So there you have it.

DVF + Andy Warhol

Diane von Furstenberg knows how to throw a party. Or perhaps—more appropriately—a celebration. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of her iconic wrap dress, the designer commissioned various artists to create works inspired by the frock’s notable legacy, to be included in the exhibition “Journey of a Dress,” which opened last Friday  in L.A. In addition (because, why stop there?), the designer launched a limited-edition collection in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation.

On view at the historic Wilshire May Company building (which will soon be the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures) next to the LACMA campus, the exhibition features hundreds of contemporary versions of the wrap dress in front of walls lined floor-to-ceiling with DVF’s patterns. Also on view are commemorative works by Dustin Yellin, Julian Opie, Francisco Clemente, Barbara Kruger, Anh Duong, and other notable contemporary artists. In particular, Yellin’s “A Ghost May Come” includes thousands of scraps of scanned magazine and newspaper articles about von Furstenberg cut into small shapes that from a few steps away look exactly like wrap dress’ iconic chain-link print. In addition, the exhibition includes seven vintage portraits of DVF by Andy Warhol, a close friend. When thinking about a unique, limited edition collection to further honor this special moment in fashion, a collaboration with the Warhol Foundation was an obvious choice. Pop Wrap: DVF + Andy Warhol, as the collection has been called, combines traditional Warholian motifs—specifically, the flower and dollar sign—with DVF’s most well-known patterns onto dresses, jumpsuits, bags and t-shirts. Best to snap up that piece you have your eye on before it too becomes another note in the book of fashion history.

Well, that’s a wrap.
