I know that awards season is all about celebrating incredible films & the incredible people who make them but a little bit is about the fabulous clothes they wear to do that. And I will continue to frantically google all the red carpet looks the morning after the event until I am on one of them myself & seeing them in person.
It sounds crazy but the outfit is so much more than just what someone wears, & it’s especially prevalent at awards seasons. It’s you displaying yourself to the entire world, & what you say with what you wear can be huge.
So here’s my round up of the outfits that made me jaw drop this awards season.
GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS
8th January 2017
Beverly Hilton, California
Channeling the La La Land song City of Stars a little bit here & I lived for it.
Chic & sexy & modern all in one go. Naomi is a queen.
My favourite look of the night, best seen in all it’s glory in a video on Gina’s instagram (seriously watch it she’s amazing).
Priyanka brings my favourite look of dark lips paired with a metallic dress to life & kills it, as always.
Shrine Auditorium, California
Just when you think Viola can’t get any more goddess-like, here she come dressed like a literal angel. You can basically see her wings.
I have a big thing for white suits & Mahershala wears one so well that he is undoubtably top of the list.
I would let this woman murder me.
I am obsessed with the OITNB star’s look. She looks so elegant yet fun & youthful.
Sunday 12th February
Royal Albert Hall, London
(by the way I was at the BAFTAs & I made video about it)
Can someone please explain to me how this woman is 49? Also link me to where I can buy this dress?
Pictures don’t really do this dress justice because it was stunning. When she moved it went all swishy on the bottom & looked even more gorgeously sheer.
This dress is insane but EE Rising Star nominee Anya wears it like it’s just something she threw on. I am borderline obsessed with this woman’s style & the risks she takes whilst still looking elegant 24/7.
This Louis Vuitton dress is my life now. I am such a huge fan of low cut/ thigh slit dresses with long sleeves.
FILM INDEPENDENT SPIRIT AWARDS
25th February 2017
How gorgeous is this dress? It’s so simple but cut so beautifully & it looks so comfy as well.
Aubrey Plaza is so cool.I need this shirt.
Red carpet fashion isn’t about what you wear, it’s how you wear it – & Janelle Monae is the literal queen of slaying it.
Sunday 26th February
Dolby Theatre, Hollywood
Taraji P. Henson
CHILLS. LITERAL CHILLS. I AM IN AWE.
& accessorised with a Planned Parenthood pin, this dress was more than worthy of an Oscar winner.
Can we make this girl a real life princess already please? She’s not even seventeen & she’s just slaying at life.
Trevante Rhodes, Alex R Hibbert & Aston Sanders
The Moonlight Chiron’s have stayed every single red carpet they’ve walked on & I have been constantly in awe of them.
Another star of Moonlight, & another look that killed me.
This is the classiest, most elegant dress I’ve ever seen & Isabelle wears it like a glove.
Again – I would let this woman murder me.
VANITY FAIR OSCAR AFTER PARTY
Sunday 26th February
This look just solidifies my love for model, actress & activist Emily.
This Old Hollywood hair & makeup with this chic & sheer modern dress is giving me so much life.
Amy wore this at the Oscars ceremony but not up that red carpet so I’m including it here. This dress literally is showing The Academy what they’re missing out on by not giving her an award.
Actual. Goddess. I am not worthy.
This look really surprised me! I’m never really been overly interested in Kate Bosworth but this beautiful, Grace Kelly-esque dress is gorgeous.
That’s my roundup of this year’s awards season looks! I think what I’ve learned from this is that I just really like shiny dresses. When I’m on red carpets one day every single dress I wear will be shiny. That’s a promise.
