Berenice Bejo In Giambattista Valli Couture - 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Bérénice Bejo was another lady-in-red at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday (January 12).

She didn’t shy away from the drama in her crimson-hued Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture confection.

Despite the powerfully potent colour, the rest of the gown just seemed to be overwhelming on the petite actress—from the bold shoulder to the flurry of floral-like embellishment, even the diaphanous long train.

Perhaps the added lining of the skirt, which was not seen on the runway, was the root of the heaviness here.

Likewise, she certainly didn’t require as many pieces from the Dior Fine Jewelry collection, despite how stunning they were. The hoop earrings needed to disappear.

While I appreciated the artistry of the gown, I couldn’t shake the fact that it seemed to detract rather than enhance Bérénice’s natural beauty. The dress ultimately seemed to be wearing her. What do you think?
