Golden Globes, 2017

The Fabulous . . .

Emma Stone – wearing a Fabulous Valentino dress, Tiffany & Co. jewels, and Jimmy Choo shoes, looked ethereal.

Reese Witherspoon – wearing a Fabulous yellow Versace dress, with Christian Louboutin shoes, and Tiffany & Co. jewels, definitely got the memo to wear yellow.

Ruth Nega – wearing a Fabulous Louis Vuitton dress custom for her, as well as completely on trend, with every color of metallic used, except aluminum foil (?) Her dress also featured a Fred Leighton cuff, featuring responsibly sourced Gemfields rubies.

Priyanka Chopra, wearing wearing a Fabulous gilded and on trend metallic, Ralph Lauren gown, with yet another trend, a plunging neckline. She also wore Brian Atwood shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Blake Lively – wearing a Fabulous Atelier Versace gown with pockets, again Lorraine Schwartz jewels. She chose two trends: A deep V and metallic. She looked absolutely Fabulous – especially after giving birth!

Hailee Seinfeld – wearing a Fabulous Vera Wang dress with cold shoulders, another strong trend for the evening. Stuart Weitzman heels, and Forevermark jewels completed her Fabulous ensemble.

Natalie Portman – paying homage to the Fabulous Jackie Kennedy’s – Oleg Cassini inauguration gown, and on trend for the evening in an embellished Prada dress. Although I would have raised the embellishment to an empire waist, Jimmy Choo shoes, and Tiffany & Co. jewels (her bracelet was from 1910!)

Mandy More – wearing a Fabulous Naeem Khan dress (although, are we not tired of this same dress reinvented, over and over in different colors and fabrics?) Jewels by Neil Lane completed the look.

Kerry Washington – wearing a Fabulous Dolce & Gabbana dress, on trend metallic, although over embellished and a bit too short, with Sophia Webster heels, and Niwaka jewels.

Kristen Bell – wearing a Fabulous and on trend, low cut, Jenny Packham dress, and Jimmy Choo clutch. The best part of the outfit, were the more than 115 carats of Harry Winston diamonds.

Lily Collins – wearing a Fabulous Zuhair Murad Couture princess dress, that would have been perfect for a Disney film, vintage Harry Winston diamonds, and Salvatore Ferragamo shoes.

Emily Ratajkowski – wearing a Fabulous gold, and on trend color, with metallic cut-out Reem Acra gown with a dramatic slit. Stuart Weitzman heels, and H. Stern 18kt gold earrings completed the look. Her spastic actions on the red carpet gave thought that she might have been on more than just aspirin?

Sarah Jessica Parker – wearing a Fabulous Vera Wang bridal gown, with on trend cold shoulder, that conjured up images of Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding dress. The outfit was paired with Fred Leighton jewels, and her very own SJP Collection shoes.

Sofia Vergara – wearing a Fabulous Zuhair Murad on trend, Couture dress, with Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Sofia finally found a new way to show off the ‘girls’ in all their glory.

Viola Davis – wearing a Fabulous and on trend, yellow Michael Kors Collection, one shoulder dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and more than 90 carats of Harry Winston diamonds, which were the best part of her outfit.

Naomi Cambell – wearing a Fabulous Versace gown. Though Enough said, for this less than likable diva.

Carrie Underwood – wearing an avant-garde pink dress, that looked liked a Fabulous Georgia O’Keef painting, Yoko London pearl diamond earrings and ring, and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.

Goldie Hawn – wearing a Fabulous of-the-shoulder Prabal Gurung dress, with Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. I didn’t know which was pulled tighter? Her face? Or, her body with spanks?

 

The Not-So Fabulous . . .

Michelle Williams – wearing a less than Fabulous Louis Vuitton dress, with a bow-choke. I guess Michelle could not get a jewelry house to loan her anything to wear? Oh well, maybe next year.

Amy Adams – wearing a boringly basic, Tom Ford dress (a better designer than a director), Cartier jewels, and Jimmy Choo shoes.

Felicity Jones – wearing a less than Fabulous Gucci gown, that could not have been uglier if it tried, and Chanel Fine Jewelry earrings.

Zoe Saldana – wearing a less than Fabulous Gucci gown, that again did not work on many levels (it was a bad fashion night for Gucci).  Jimmy Choo shoes and Bulgari jewels, completed this not so Fabulous look.

Janelle Monáe – wearing a Fabulous Armani dress, however the asymmetrical made me wonder if it was long? Short? Black? White? Or was all of it on purpose? Giuseppe Zanetti heels, and Forevermark jewels completed this not so Fabulous look.

Anna Kendrick – wearing a one-shoulder, less than Fabulous Vionnet gown, with a floor-sweeping train, that could not have been less flattering.  Tyler Ellis clutch, and Neil Lane jewels.

Riley Keough – wearing a less than Fabulous Chanel Hauté Couture, beaded dress, with way too much going on, and none of them Fabulous. Chanel Fine Jewelry completed this less than Fabulous look.

Anna Chlumsky – (her look good have easily been labeled ‘clumsy’), wearing a less than Fabulous kelly-green gown, that was ill-fit, with a black star that looked like they ran out of material. Loeffler Randall sandals, and H. Stern 18kt gold hoops, completed this not-so Fabulous look.

Chrissy Metez – wearing a velvet embroidered dress, by Nathaniel Paul. Size has nothing to do with beauty, and this look proved that. This was a matron dress that should have been donated.

Octavia Spencer – Though a Fabulous actress, she wore a Laura Basci navy suit, that looked more like she was headed to the office, rather than to the the Globes.  A Tyler Ellis clutch, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, completed the look.

Judith Light – wearing a Fabulous zebra strip, long sleeved gown, yet trying just a bit to hard, with Chopard jewels.

Sophie Turner – wearing a less than Fabulous Louis Vuitton gown, with sheer panels that made me ask “Why?” Forevermark jewels completed this not-so Fabulous look.

 

Fabulous, Or Not? . . .

Nicole Kidman – wearing a Fabulous Alexander McQueen dress (although too many of the trends that evening were represented in this one garment), with Fred Leighton jewels Stuart Weitzman shoes.

Tracee Ellis Ross – The oldest daughter of – “That’s Miss Ross, to you” wearing a Fabulous strapless, embellished Zuhair Murad dress (it was a good night for Zuhair Murad), and pumps and rows of rings, by Noudar, L’Dezen by Payal Shaw, Yeprem, Kavant & Sharat, and Hueb. (That was a more than Fabulous mouth-full). Tracee’s artistic display on her hands was Fabulous, while her dress was too tight, and too short. So close to Fabulous, and yet so far away.

 

Until next time . . .
