2016 Golden Globes Fashion - Nude to White

I'm throwing another post your way today. There's just too many dresses!! Let's take a look at the nude and white dresses from last night's Golden Globes.

Rooney Mara
 
Nominee, Rooney Mara wore this nude Alexander McQueen dress. She's always very avant-garde in her fashion choices, so this dress is definitely in her comfort zone. The warm, nude color matches her skin color almost exactly (which is a good thing), and the lack of jewelry or accessories was the right choice stylistically. I couldn't get behind the slicked back hair though. This dress is very ethereal, and would have looked great with some long, loose locks. She almost always sports this severe hairstyle, so it wasn't really unexpected to see though. Overall, nice job.

Amanda Peet
Amanda Peet also wore Alexander McQueen to the event, but this look didn't go over nearly as well for me. The ashy nude color is washing her out, and the high-neck collar looks like an afterthought. It would have worked far better as a strapless dress. The hair and jewelry are nice, but the dark lip and nails are much too heavy for such a delicate dress. This one was a miss for me.

Zoe Kazan
Zoe Kazan wore this chevron striped Miu Miu gown. The white, blush, and nude stripes were an interesting color combination, and it fits her really well. It's definitely different. The clutch seems a little clunky though for such a sheer gown, but her ring and bracelet look great. What I really loved though, was her blunt bob hairstyle. She looks adorable!

Judith Light
Judith Light looked great in this ivory tuxedo (couldn't find the designer). I loved the color, crisp white shirt, and cummerbund! Her hair and make-up complimented the look well. She looks comfortable and happy. My only quibble, and it's so small, is that I would have gone with a gold pump instead of the silver. That's it though. Great look!!

Jane Fonda
Jane Fonda wore this Yves Saint Laurent gown column gown that was all about the ruffle. Either you're on board with the ruffle or you're aren't; and I'm on board! I really strangely kind of liked it. It would have still been a fine look without it, bit not nearly as memorable. Her hair and accessories were right on point too - love the pearl accents. Again though, I can't get behind the shoes and would have done a gold sandal instead. She looks pretty amazing for 78 though. Great job, Jane!

 Taraji P. Henson
Winner, Taraji P. Henson, wore this Stella McCartney column dress. It doesn't look too bad here, but the cape/train that was attached to the back of the dress was awful. It looked like she had this random piece of fabric just trailing behind her dress. The jewelry was nice, her make-up only okay, her hair looked unkempt, and the handbag was oh-so wrong. This was a total miss for me.

Lily James
Lily James wore this ethereal Marchesa gown that almost had me. If you look closely, the dress is not just white, but has the softest shades of what looks like rose, blue, and yellow in it too. The bodice seems needlessly complicated though, and I would have preferred not to see the slices of skin on the front and side. This was ultimately a case of bad styling though, as the dark smoky eye and hair seem too heavy for such a light and flowy dress. This look one was just okay for me.

Saoirse Ronan
Nominee, Saoirse Ronan, wore this Grecian style Saint Laurent Couture dress. This was a good look. The dress fits well and has a lot of movement. The simple jewelry, hair, and make-up all accent the look really well. Nicely done, Saoirse!

Alicia Vikander
Double nominee, Alicia Vikander, wore this white apron-like gown. It looked surprisingly simple considering it has ruffles, pleats, stripes, and a belt. I feel like it shouldn't have worked, but somehow did. The neat up-do and simple jewelry and make-up complimented the look well. Well done, Alicia!

AND FINALLY...

Laverne Cox
Lavern Cox really wowed in this Elizabeth Kennedy column gown. The silhouette of the dress is lovely, the neckline was interesting, and the train really added the drama. Her lip color was a tad dark, but her hair was probably a personal best for her, Ultimately though, it was the chic emerald clutch and jewels that really made the whole look for me. They added the perfect little pop of color. Beautiful!
