Dressing Like The Stars: Golden Globes 2018 Edition

golden-globes-awards-logo.jpg

Perhaps 2018 was the most interesting year for Golden Globe fashion. Hollywood showed solidarity in all black for the #metoo and #timesup movements. This is inspirational in so many ways. While 2018 will definitely be the year women take over Hollywood, it will also be the year of black on the red carpet. Here are some of the trends from the event as well as similar outfits that will inspire you to both dress up and stand up. 

Pants & Skirted Pants/Jumpsuits

Alison Brie literally said it best, “Tonight is about women wearing the pants so I chose to literally wear the pants.” Debra Messing, Christina Hendricks, and Alexis Bledel also wore pants or pants that resembled dresses aka skirted pants. This might be one of my favorite styles ever. I'm hoping this look is here to stay. 

Velvet

Natalie Portman and Viola Davis took classic old Hollywood to a new level. A signature winter fabric, velvet is forgiving on so many body types and really helps make your accessories pop.

Bows

Bow yes! Tracee Ellis Ross, Sara Paulson, Dove Cameron and Emilia Clarke all had very unique bow dresses. What an easy look to steal! 

Something Extra

Whether it's sequins, shine or something sheer, the stars were all about the extra this year. Kerry Washington, Octavia Spencer, Lilly James, Nicole Kidman, Ashley Judd and Issa Rae are great examples of this.

 Peter Pan Collar

Elisabeth Moss looked so prim and proper with her Peter Pan collar dress. These style collars are magical and can take any outfit someplace else, making a formal look more casual or a casual look more formal. 

Pop of Color

While everyone wore black, not everyone wore all black. Mandy Moore, Allison Williams, Saoirse Ronan and Katherine Langford all had a pop of color in their dresses. While Halston Heritage killed it this season with their pop of color dresses, it's easy to add a pop of color to any dress you already own using a belt or sash. 

 

Dressing Like The Stars: Emmy Awards 2017

The big winner this year at the 2017 Emmys was fashion. The red carpet was filled with so many beautiful dresses, you know that every stylist was not only on their A-Game, but their clients actually listened. Everyone was so fabulous that I'm not sure I even saw one thing that could have inspired any of the following thoughts—

What were there thinking?

Were they even thinking?

Do they have a brain?

WTF is wrong with this person?

Do they not own a mirror?

Someone call an ambulance!

Nope, it was a night for spectacular fashion, funny jokes and minimal regrets. Here are some of my favorite looks and a few suggestions on how to steal the best styles without getting arrested by the fashion police. (Too much?)

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman reserved her time on the red carpet in a gown from Calvin Klein By Appointment. Book your own style in either a satin and chiffon gown by After Six or this Morgan & Co lace and jersey dress. Both are from Nordstrom.

Samantha Bee

Style made a b-line for Samantha Bee in a Rubin Singer gown. Go for green in a chic long sleeved cutout dress from Cavalli or a slightly more casual frock from Misguided.

Marisa Sullivan

Marisa Sullivan rocked the red carpet in a Mac Dugal dress styled by Ali Levine. While it's hard to find a dupe, this burgundy Alfred Sung Strapless High/Low Sateen Twill Gown puts a slightly more classic spin on her look, while the Fernanda dress by Amanda Uprichard captures the fun .

Millie Bobby Brown

Millie Bobby Brown's Calvin Klein By Appointment dress did pirouettes around everyone else on the red carpet. ASOS' Mini Tulle Dress is a different spin on the same idea. If you want to be a ballerina but maybe in sneakers or boots, this  J. Crew tulle skirt  is everything!

Amanda Salas

If I had to choose my favorite look of the night, it would be Amanda Salas' one-of-a-kind red lace sheath gown. Styled by Ali Levine, this also happens to be, in my opinion, one of the best looks she's ever styled. Aijek Millie's Lace Gown gets the look pretty close, while the Marie Lace Midi Dress is a little more appropriate for an extra sexy date night.

Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley looked almost unrecognizable, but in a good way (obvs) at the Emmys. Her green Ralph Lauren dress had jaws dropping. Create a similar look in a green velvet mermaid gown from Jovani or basically steal it in this Aidan by Aidan Mattox Velvet V-Neck Wrap Evening Gown.

Dressing Like The Stars: Golden Globes 2017 Edition

Do you ever watch awards shows and wish you could wear your favorite celeb’s dress? I know I do. Even if the only red carpet you walk on is in your living room, we can all be inspired by celeb style. Here are some of the most talked about looks from the 2017 Golden Globe awards along with similar dresses. While they aren’t exact dupes, some are pretty darn close. But, whether you are going to a wedding, party or simply the opening of an envelope, there isn’t one dress here you won’t feel fabulous in. Seriously, prepare for jaws to drop when the paparazzi spots you. And by paparazzi, I mean your friends who take too many selfies. 

Sparkle Like Emma Stone

A star in stars, Emma Stone's Valentino dress was one of the most talked about looks of the Golden Globes. Here are some similar dresses that show you don't have to be a movie star to pull off the star dress look.

Blush Jupiter Dress by Privacy Please

Krause Dress by Privacy Please.

Stars Tulle Dress by Mango.

Madeline dress by X By NBD.

Ruffle Critics Like Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood's pink Iris Serban dress was considered a fashion risk.  In my option, it was one worth taking. Here are two dresses guaranteed to ruffle even the toughest critic (your mom or BFF). 

Sleeveless Ruffle Dress by MSGM and Sleeveless Ruffle Trim Gown by Jovani.

Plunge Into Style Like Kristen Bell and Mandy Moore

Both Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham and Mandy Moore in Naeem Khan plunged onto the best dressed lists with daring necklines. Dare to wear these sexy black dresses.

One Shoulder Drape Midi Dress by ASOS and Kassidy Pleated Crepon Maxi Dress by Alice + Olivia.

Look Pretty In Purple Like Hailee Steinfeld and Chrissy Metz

Hailee Steinfeld's Vera Wang dress was my favorite look of the evening. Chrissy Metz also wore a purple dress, in a dark, sophisticated amethyst shade designed by Nathan Paul. Whether you are vying for a violet dress dress like Hailee's or a deeper color like Chrissy's, there are plenty of choices. 

Aliki Illusion Yoke Tulle Halter Gown by Amsale.

V-Neck Gown by Monique Lhuillier

Embroidered Lace Sheath Dress by Tadashi Shoji  (also available in plus sizes).
