2017 Golden Globe Fashion - Let It Shine

There was quite the array of sparkly, shimmery, and metallic dresses at the Golden Globes as well. Let's take a look.

Ruth Negga
Nominee, Ruth Negga, wore this silver sequined Louis Vuitton gown. It was a bold choice, but I couldn't get past the rectangular frame around her bust or the front zipper. Her beautiful hair and face more than make up for it though. Not bad, Ruth!

Thandie Newton
Nominee, Thandie Newton, wore this white Monse dress with firelike sequined detailing along the hem. I liked the combination of the off-the-shoulder neckline and long sleeves. It's a good silhouette for her too. I think it would have worked better if the main color of the dress was orange or red though. It's almost too stark a contrast between the bright white and the fiery colored sequins. Still, good job, Thandie! 

Amy Adams
Nominee, Amy Adams black sequined Tom Ford dress seems so basic compared to all the variety of this year's red carpet. As pretty a look as this is, I'm afraid it's ultimately quite forgettable in the end. Just okay for me.  

Sarah Paulson
Nominee, Sarah Paulson wore this silver and gold sequined Marc Jacobs number. The style suits her, but I would have preferred if the lining continued all the way to the floor. Still, it gets the job done.

Kerry Washington 
Nominee, Kerry Washington wore this gold lace Dolce & Gabbana dress. I loved the sleeves, little sash, and even the length was working for me. The shoes were a little lackluster, and of course, it should have been completely lined and in the color along her bust instead of black. Beautiful hair and make-up though. Not bad, Kerry.

Annette Benning
Nominee, Annette Benning wore this Pamella Roland sequined gown. I would have preferred this in a color, and the silhouette gives her a very rectangle shape. Still, it's age appropriate and has a very classic Hollywood feel to it.

 Regina King
Regina King's silver Romona Keveza dress mostly hits the mark. The fit is great, but the slightly asymmetrical top seemed odd. I don't think the hair was the right choice though, and the make-up a tad too soft. The jewelry, however, is all fantastic. That butterfly ring and those ear cuffs - so much fun. Good job, Regina! 

Judith Light
Judith Light's sequined Balmain gown was a lot of fun. It's a relatively simple silhouette, but the zebra print really brings the personality. Great job, Judith!

Tracee Ellis Ross
Winner, Tracee Ellis Ross, wore this white and silver Zuhair Murad Couture number. It looks unfinished to me. Actually, it looks like the corset and underpinnings one wears under a dress. The whole thing was pretty underwhelming from the hair to the shoes. This one was a miss for me.

AND FINALLY...

Millie Bobby Brown
Millie Bobby Brown's sparkly Jenny Packham cocktail dress was my favorite of the bunch. She's just too adorable. It's completely age appropriate (she's only 12!), yet blends in flawlessly among much fancier gowns. The shoes are adorable, the simple hair let's the dress shine, and the bright pink lip is the perfect pop of color. Fantastic job, Millie!
