The 2014 Golden Globes – My Favorites

Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé

cate-blanchett-golden-globes-2014-dress-red-carpet-fashion-style-designer-black-lace-armani-priveI was expecting to see Cate Blanchett dazzling on the red carpet regardless of her choice in the dress. And of course she did not disappoint. It’s true that after seeing her latest appearances, I thought that she would go for a feminine, ethereal or minimalist look. But perhaps that’s why the excitement tripled when she took over the red carpet in this breath-taking Armani Privé gown. It was quite unexpected and I was pleasantly surprised. Chopard earring, a retro hairstyle and flawless makeup completed the look. She truly knows how to make a lace gown work and not feel overwhelmed by it.

Jessica Chastain, “Cleopatra” Premiere

I know the beautiful actress opts for simple gowns a lot of the times, so I wasn’t surprised to see this look. She wore a sheer white Versace dress that was enlivened by a breath-taking necklace. I do like the dress, however the necklace doesn’t work for me in spite of its grateness. It is too heavy for such a delicate and feminine design. Her singature hairstyle completed the look.

The 2013 Academy Awards – The Outfits

This is it! The 2013 Academy Awards took place last night at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. As expected, there were a lot of actresses who walked the red carpet. Among my favorites was probably Naomi Watts in Giorgio Armani, who easily managed to pull off that look. I also liked Alicia Vikander & Sandra Bullock, both in Elie Saab. Jessica Chastain wore a simple yet very classy and sophisticated design by Armani Privé. I would also add on this list Charlize Theron‘s Dior gown and Anne Hathaway‘s Prada dress.

The 2013 SAG Awards – The Outfits

To get straight to the point, my favorites of the night were Marion Cotillard and Naomi Watts. They are the first that come to my mind when I think about last night’s red carpet appearances. Naomi Watts looked stunning in a white Marchesa strapless gown. The fact that she kept the styling simple, made it  look classic and sophisticated. Marion Cotillard wore Christian Dior as usual. The design of the dress really worked out for her. I like it and I also like the fact that, despite wearing the same brand over and over again, Marion always manages to show us a new approach of the look. Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried and Kerry Washington looked very elegant as well. I’d also add Nina Dobrev and Jennifer Garner on this list. Jennifer, who doesn’t take risks when it comes to choosing the dress for the red carpet but neither does she make big mistakes, opted for a sheer gold Oscar de la Renta dress.

Jessica Chastain was another pleasant appearance on the red carpet. Her Alexander McQueen dress is definitely an improvement from what she has worn this awards season. Her dresses have been so lackluster, I believe she deserves to make a great comeback.

Sometimes the dresses, as presented on the runway, don’t look so good on the red carpet. For example, as much as I love Giambattisa Valli, Anne Hathway’s look did not impress me. The most disappointing was undoubtedly Jennifer Lawrence. The design looked completely wrong…it just looked like a cloth wrapped around her body. Just because it’s tagged Dior doesn’t mean it is good.
