Kerry Washington in Dolce & Gabbana – 2017 Golden Globe Awards

Kerry Washington attended the 2017 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 8) at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, where she was nominated for her role on ‘Confirmation.’

However, for the Globes, she played the role of goth golden girl with her Dolce & Gabbana sheer lace, metallic corset dress and dramatic, dark lippie.

The strange black patchwork pin detail at the side was one of the first things that turned me against this ensemble. That was closely followed by the highly visible appearance of what looks like black shapewear under the see-through frock.

The two of those things together completely distracted from the look and tarnished any gold factor.

Blake Lively In Atelier Versace – 2017 Golden Globe Awards

Blake Lively started 2017 like she ended 2016. On top form.

The Golden Globes isn’t an event to play it safe or fade into the background; of which my girl did neither.

I loved the old school glamour oozing from this Atelier Versace custom gown. It was grown-up, without being ageing. Sexy, without being revealing and unpredictable which is always a bonus when it pays off.

Some objected to the pockets, but I feel this gown was richer as a result. They added to the overall drama for me.

Tracee Ellis Ross In Polite, Zuhair Murad Couture & Paule Ka – BAFTA Tea Party & 2017 Golden Globe Awards

Tracee Ellis Ross attended the BAFTA Tea Party at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles on January 7, 2017 before having a grand night at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards on January 8 that had her winning Best Actress in a TV Comedy for ‘Black-ish.’

BAFTA Tea Party: The actress marched to the beat of her own drum in this Polite floral-print mock neck pleated dress. From the waist down, the look was fine enough. Unfortunately, the long-sleeved top half proved to be unflattering and cumbersome with too much fabric coverage.

2017 Golden Globe Awards: It’s our first Zuhair Murad sighting of the year, as Tracee worked the sheer trend in this strapless, corset Spring 2016 Couture gown from the designer known for embellished, sexy statements. Her fingers were nearly more clothed than she, as she stacked on all manners of rings to round out the look.

Golden Globe Awards Party: Wearing a loose-fitted Paule Ka dress for the Globes parties, my feeling once again is just too much fabric. The colour is great, the ball clutch is a cute touch, but I feel like this dress is overwhelming Tracee.

Mandy Moore In Lela Rose, Naeem Khan, Marc Jacobs & RED Valentino – 2017 AFI Awards, W Magazine’s It Girls Party, 2017 Golden Globe Awards, 2017 ELLE’s Annual Women In Television Celebration & NBCUniversal Winter Press Tour

Mandy Moore has served up a many amazing – and typically girlie – looks so far this year.

2017 AFI Awards: Mandy’s first look was fresh and feminine with a feel-good factor. Gingham has always been synonymous with spring, so I love how Lela Rose reworked and enlivened this classic tea-length dress with a cut-out and colour-blocking effect to add some modernity.

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.
