Evan Rachel Wood In Alberta Ferretti, Jonathan Simkhai & Alturazza – W Magazine Party, BAFTA Tea Party & Golden Globe Awards

I’ve always loved Evan Rachel Wood’s style which often see her marching to the beat of her own drum. Lately she opted for tailored looks for the W Magazine party, the BAFTA Tea Party and the Golden Globe Awards.

W Magazine Party: This Alberta Ferretti look adds serious polish to Evan Rachel Wood’s already impressive suiting portfolio. Detailed with a geometric print and cut to a sharp silhouette, I love how she makes an added statement with the coordinating rouge lip and pumps.

BAFTA Tea Party: I love how this Jonathan Simkhai jumpsuit redefines the notion of ‘classic’, while presenting a contemporary sense of femininity. The draping and contrasting white detailing for added drama perfect this look for me. Jimmy Choo ‘Max’ sandals and a ‘Celeste’ clutch provided the finishing touches.

2017 Golden Globe Awards: When I saw this ultra sharp Alturazza three-piece tux on Evan, my first thought was Tilda Swinton would give this look an standing O; as did I. Not many could make such a strong statement while possessing an air of playful charm. I’m not sure she quite got the credit she was due for this look.

Sophie Turner In Louis Vuitton – BAFTA Tea Party, Golden Globe Awards & BAFTA Nominations

Sophie Turner joined the other stars at the BAFTA Tea Party on January 7, 2017 and the 2017 Golden Globe Awards the following evening before heading to the BAFTA nomination announcements on January 10 in London, England.

BAFTA Tea Party: The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress brought her own version of fashion armor in a Louis Vuitton ensemble highlighted by gold-embellished cropped pants and a bold-shoulder shirt topped off by a gold choker neckline. Paired with stylized booties, this was a striking look that few could pull off with the power and grace that Sophie did.

Golden Globe Awards: Sophie again used her statuesque height to her advantage with another Louis Vuitton look that was just as statement-making as her prior BAFTA Tea Party one. This asymmetric draped, sheer cutout gown, sprinkled with crystals, may not find favour among some who may fault its modernized version of ’80s excess and exposed shoulder pad, but she wore it well regardless.

BAFTA Nominations: From maximal to minimal, she switched fashion lanes to a simplified but incredibly chic Victoria Beckham forest green pant suit with a streamlined ponytail to match the straightforward style vibe.

Viola Davis In Christian Siriano & Michael Kors – Hollywood Walk of Fame & Golden Globe Awards

Viola Davis kicked off the New Year on the right foot, receiving her own star to add to the constellation that is the Hollywood Walk of Fame on January 5, 2017 in Hollywood, California.

Then the starry honours only continued for Viola at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards on January 8 at The Beverly Hilton with her Best Supporting Actress win.

Hollywood Walk of Fame: Her smile was even more radiant than her bright-white Christian Siriano dress with embellished sleeves and collar, which provided a blank canvas for her to pose with her star.

Golden Globe Awards: Vibrant hues and a one-shoulder silhouette are a winning combination for the ‘Fences’ actress, so it was only natural that she struck fashion gold in this bold, canary-yellow Michael Kors sequin gown to accept her Golden Globe award.

Thandie Newton In Monse – BAFTA Tea Party & Golden Globe Awards

Thandie Newton also attended both the BAFTA Tea Party and the Golden Globe Awards in California on January 7 and January 8, respectively, where she debuted two looks from up-and-coming New York designer, Monse.

BAFTA Tea Party: I have to say it took me a little while to take in just where this polka-dot dress started and ended with its asymmetrical necklines, slits, and ties. The verdict? I like bits and pieces of it from various angles, but with the simple accessories I think she made it work.

Golden Globe Awards: The actress is quoted to have said that her Monse gown reminded her of a lit cigarette. There’s no doubt the white off-the-shoulder dress is on fire with the copper sequined flames crawling up the hem, which she accessorized with a diamond reverse necklace

Michelle Williams In Louis Vuitton – New York Film Critics Circle Awards, BAFTA Tea Party & Golden Globe Awards

Michelle Williams has also been on the awards circuit, attending the New York Film Critics Circle Awards on January 3 followed by the BAFTA Tea Party in Los Angeles on January 7 and finally the 2017 Golden Globes at The Beverly Hilton on January 8.

New York Film Critics Circle: Simple yet statement-making, the ‘Manchester by the Sea’ actress’s Louis Vuitton black dress got a punch of personality by virtue of her metallic heels and platinum pixie cut.

BAFTA Tea Party: Again donning Louis Vuitton and showing her ambassadorial support of the French fashion house, she took minimalism to heart in this sweet baby-pink frock that was crying for an earring to top it off.

Golden Globe Awards: For the big awards night, the nominated actress donned an off-the-shoulder, layered lace gown for her third Louis Vuitton outing. Again playing to a modern minimalist look, jewels were all but replaced in favour of a velvet choker for this romantic entrance.

What did you make of her LV three-peat?

Brie Larson In Rodarte – 2017 Golden Globe Awards

When it came to picking my favourite gown of the night, I let my goosebumps do the talking.

The second I saw Brie Larson’s Rodarte Golden Globes gown the hairs on the back of my neck stood up.

Yes, this isn’t anything particularly new or innovative, especially considering it’s from Rodarte, but I’m a sucker for glamour and classic elegance – of which this look possesses plenty.

Kristen Bell In Jenny Packham – 2017 Golden Globe Awards

When someone switches up their red carpet style, it’s usually met with a rousing round of applause from me.

That was definitely the case when I saw Kristen Bell’s sultry side come out to play at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 8).

Jenny Packham expertly marries dark romance with high-octane glamour while creating this embellished gown.

Usually I am not a huge fan of square necklines, yet I love how it adds a modern twist on the classic tuxedo gown.

Kristen Wiig In Reem Acra – 2017 Golden Globe Awards

Kristen Wiig’s red carpet looks are usually met with a certain amount of appreciation from me, however, that wasn’t the case at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 8).

I don’t think this Reem Acra look did anything for her.

I’m not a fan of the colour of the lining or where it stops.

Overall, I think this look aged her.
