So Sunday night saw the 71st annual Golden Globes awards, hosted at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and presented, for the third year in a row by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Check out Wikipedia for all the nominees and winners. Now to the important bit – THE dresses…
I have to say, I wasn’t really blown away with any of the entire looks this year, not compared to some of the fab dresses at last years Emmy’s. There was even a duplicate dress – GASP.
Miss Golden Globe (an annual title awarded, traditionally to the daughter (or son – Mr Golden Globe) of a celebrity, to assist in the awards) Sosie Bacon, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, on her introduction to the Globes, and at the Emmy’s Shasi Wells, actress and girlfriend of Dylan McDermott, wore the same dress by designer Rhea Costa – but it is a gooden, and made it into my faves list for both!
But just looking back over the gallery of the Emmy 2013 dresses, even the ones I wasn’t sure about seem better than some of the Golden Globes ones.
But I think I’ll let these gals off, just click on the pic for a better look…

Unfortunately my September girl crush Jennifer Lawrence’s dress wasn’t my cup of tea, a gown from the Dior Couture autumn/winter 2013 collection and Roger Vivier clutch. But honestly I think her personality, charisma and confidence allows her to pretty much wear anything and look ! And she took home the Best Supporting Actress in a Musical or Comedy award for American Hustle. Go Girl!!

Personally I think the boys blew the ladies out of the water, and hit a massive trend tick box – velvet…
Matthew McConaughey in a Green Velvet Dolce and Gabbana blazer with his wife Camila Alves at the NBC Universal after-party, and Kevin Spacey in a Burberry tuxedo.
What do you think? Am I way off base? I’d love to know if I haven’t included your favourites!
