Welcome to Award Season Round-Up 2016. Award season is upon us and I will be covering the events, weekly, in the run up to the Oscars at the end of February. Tune in every Sunday at 1pm to see the what the week has to offer.Brie Larson was a golden goddess for the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday evening. After picking up Best Actress - Drama for her role in Room, she looked amazing in her custom made Calvin Klein Collection halter neck gown with a keyhole spit and cutouts. Not only was she deserving of her win, but of a major red carpet moment like this. Bravo, Brie!
I’m a huge Laverne Cox fan. The Orange is the New Black actress was also present at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. In a custom made Elizabeth Kennedy gown with a flowing train, Laverne looked statuesque. This will go down as her best look.
Alicia Vikander, a double nominee, also took to the red carpet at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. She donned a custom, naturally, Louis Vuitton, expectedly, gown. Her streamlined, striped dress featured ruffled sleeves and neckline. Unfortunately, I didn’t like this look.
19-year-old singer/actress Zendaya Coleman was also in attendance at the Globes. I didn’t expect to be as smitten by her custom K.C. Undercover three-tiered dress with a plunging neckline as much as I was. She is a style maverick, so this is another hit for her.
Kate Bosworth was present at the Globes for presenting duties on Sunday evening. Her dazzling pink, strapless gown with intricate palette embroidery is a rare hit for Italian label Dolce & Gabbana. I’m not a fan of the label but this is magnificent. Kate looks wonderful.Debuting Hedi Slimane’s first Saint Laurent Haute Couture red carpet look, Saoirse Ronan attended the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Her understated ivory gown featured a sweeping train and a plunging neckline. The look isn’t very impactful but Saoirse does look undoubtedly gorgeous.
Now this is the Kirsten Dunst I know and love. At the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, the Fargo nominee opted for a black Fall 2015 Valentino Haute Couture gown with an open neckline. A sleek up-do finished the look. One of the best dressed of the night.
Viola Davis, one of my favourite actresses, was also present at the Globes on Sunday evening. The How to Get Away with Murder actress decided upon a navy Marchesa gown with rich, crystal embellishment. I was tired of seeing embellished gowns on the red carpet but when they look as fantastic as they do on Viola, you make a pass.
Cate Blanchett was pretty in pink at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. The Australian actress was nominated for Carol in Best Actress - Drama. Her custom made Givenchy Haute Couture by Ricardo Tisci gown looked like it was plucked from the 20’s. Fringe, embroidery and embellishment decorated the look. Not my favourite, but still lovely.
Julianne Moore was on hand to present Best Actor - Drama at the Globes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Oscar winner opted for a custom, midnight blue Tom Ford gown. Unsurprising is her choice because Tom Ford was her date for the show.Emilia Clarke was present at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards to support her television series Game of Thrones. The British actress, like Ms Dunst, represented the Fall 2015 Valentino Haute Couture collection. Her high neck, caped dress was enriched with delicate embellishment.
The Countess herself, Lady Gaga oozed sophisticated glamour at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, where she picked up Best Actress in a Miniseries for American Horror Story: Hotel. Her custom made Atelier Versace dress, was slightly off-the-shoulder and featured an exaggerated waist. Not only to I have huge admiration for her as an artist, but for this look too. It is stunning.
Jennifer Lawrence was another winner at the Globes on Sunday evening. I usually have fears before a red carpet event with Jennifer scheduled to appear, despite my love for her. She is contractually obligated to wear Christian Dior to big events, like this, and the result isn’t always stellar. Luckily, I loved her gown with a bib neckline and cutouts at the waist. A Chopard diamond choker was styled with the look.
Amy Adams was enlisted as a presenter for the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday evening. Amy has been nominated six times and won twice, yet each of those times I haven’t seen her look this amazing. Her tangerine Atelier Versace halter gown had crystal encrusting. If only this was her year, because she’s stealing the thunder from the nominees.
Rooney Mara’s look was one of the most anticipated of the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. The Carol nominee for Best Actress - Drama donned a Spring 2016 Alexander McQueen dusty rose shredded lace one shouldered gown. A ponytail finished the look. Like Saoirse’s look, not as impactful as expected.
Eddie Redmayne, nominated for his work in The Danish Girl, is one of the most daring men when it comes to fashion. For the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards he wore a charcoal Gucci tuxedo. Sadly this picture doesn’t convey the black printing on Eddie’s suit.
Amy Schumer, nominated for Trainwreck, at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards presented alongside her friend Jennifer Lawrence. Looking her best yet, the comedy actress opted for a Prabal Gurung off-the-shoulder, black and white gown. Simply beautiful.
The real tragedy about Rooney Mara’s Spring 2016 Alexander McQueen gown was that Togetherness actress Amanda Peet wore one that was almost identical. Amanda’s high neck gown was also lovely. However, of the two pink lace dresses, Rooney wins in my eyes.
David Oyelowo is another virtuosic male fashion star. At the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, he didn't win an award for Nightingale but certainly he won best dressed male. His violet, polka dot three piece tuxedo easily stood out among a boring bunch.
Jane The Virgin star Gina Rodriguez picked up the Golden Globe for her role in the CW show last year. Back for the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, the beauty chose a navy Zac Posen off-the-shoulder gown with a ball gown skirt. One of the best dressed TV stars of the night.
Alongside Saoirse Ronan, legendary actress Jane Fonda, nominated for Youth, debuted Saint Laurent Haute Couture. Her dress, also white, featured a tiered ivory neckline. On first glance this look didn’t do it for me, but 12 hours after seeing it on the red carpet I’m liking it much more.
To celebrate her win for Joy, Jennifer Lawrence attended Fox and FX’s 2016 Golden Globe After Party. Simply, she chose a Pre-Fall 2016 Versace mini dress with blue embellishment. Not in love with this one but who cares: she’s here to have fun.
Actress Jaime King was in attendance at the 2016 InStyle & Warner Bros. Golden Globe After-Party. Picking one of her favourite labels: Monse; she chose a gown from the Spring 2016 collection. I’m a massive Monse, and Jaime fan but at first I wasn’t taken by this look. The more I look at it, the more I find myself increasingly liking it.
Nicola Peltz was another beautiful actress at the 2016 InStyle & Warner Bros. Golden Globe After-Party on Sunday night. She donned a Tom Ford mini dress with a low neckline, sheer detailing and a black choker. Black ankle strap heels finished the look. Fun but forgettable.
Michelle Monaghan, last week’s standout star, made another award season appearance, this time at the 2016 InStyle & Warner Bros. Golden Globe After-Party. Again, she chose a Prabal Gurung gown. Her canary yellow, strapless gown was lovely. I hope to see more hits from her this season.
Jennifer Garner and Kristen Stewart posed side by side at Marie Claire’s Inaugural Image Maker Awards at Chateau Marmont on Tuesday night. Jennifer delivered simplicity in her Spring 2016 Prada powder blue dress with a scoop neckline and floral embroideries. Unfortunately, there was a horrible amount of creases and the dress doesn’t sit well. Kristen, on the other hand, continues her winning streak. This time she opted for a Spring 2016 Sally LaPointe mini dress with a gold embellished skirt, and a Rag & Bone coat. She’s continually wowing me.
Lupita Nyong’o made her first award season appearance at the Marie Claire’s Inaugural Image Maker Awards. The Oscar winner wore a blue, halter neck form-fitting gown. Pewter heels completed her look. Certainly not the most exciting, but it’s always a pleasure to see Lupita on the red carpet.
Cover star of the January issue, actress Bella Heathcote was also in attendance at Marie Claire’s Inaugural Image Maker Awards. Putting her best foot forward, which granted her best dressed of the evening, the Aussie donned a Spring 2016 Christopher Kane black dress with a side split and colourful detail. Not surprised that this promising star is starting off the year on a high.
