Favorite Looks from the Golden Globes

Sunday night was a bit hectic – both for myself and for my DVR. The Golden Globe Awards aired at the same time as many of my favorite series, including Girls, Revenge, and Downton Abbey. Needless to say, I more than managed, taking in all the red carpet looks for the second-most important awards show of the season. Overall I thought the fashion was kind of … meh, which was fine, because that meant nothing could distract me from endlessly gawking over Ben Affleck or laughing at Tina and Amy, who, I might add, did not get enough air time if you ask me. A few looks left me puzzled, such as Jennifer Lawrence’s Dior boobs that ruined an otherwise gorgeous dress and Rachel Weisz’s polka dot bed skirt look, and very few looks “wowed” me, but that just leaves so much to be desired for with the Oscars next month. So here we go, my personal fashion awards for the 2013 Golden Globes:

Best Color – Jessica Alba (in Oscar de la Renta)

Honorable Mention – Jennifer Garner (in Vivienne Westwood), Naomi Watts (in Zac Posen)


Best Black – Kate Hudson (in Alexander McQueen)

Honorable Mention – Allison Williams (in J. Mendel – google image the back!), Amy Phoeler (in Stella McCartney)


Best Hot Momma – Claire Danes (in Versace)

Honorable Mention – Megan Fox (in Dolce & Gabbana)


Best White – Michelle Dockery (in Alexandre Vauthier Couture)

Honorable Mention – Amanda Seyfried (in Givenchy Haute Couture), Alicia Vikander (in Chanel — WHY ISN’T ANYBODY TALKING ABOUT THIS DRESS???)


Best Sparkle – Kerry Washington (in Miu Miu)

Honorable Mention – Emily Blunt (in Michael Kors), Helen Hunt (in Dolce & Gabbana)


Collaboration Flashback: Versace + Julie Verhoeven

I think “Flashback Friday” has a nice ring to it, so maybe I will start to make this a weekly thing…

Julie Verhoeven’s whimsical fashion illustrations have caught the attention of a number of high end designers, including Louis Vuitton and Mulberry. Both brands have collaborated the artist to design capsule collections for their lines, as did Donatella Versace for her Spring 2009 collection. Versace commissioned Verhoeven to rework the Versace iconography, and the artist designed a bright, colorful medusa pattern that Versace scrawled across handbags, clothing and swimwear. I wish I could find one of these gowns in a vintage shop!

Collaboration Flashback: Versace + Tim Roeloffs

Donatella Versace debuted her Fall/Winter 2008 collection of fashionable, wearable art in collaboration with edgy Dutch collage artist Tim Roeloffs during fashion week in Milan. The partnership resulted in four beautiful dresses utilizing Roeloffs’ style with Donatella’s designs and utilizing some of the famous Versace icons along with Berlin imagery.
