Last night the 70th Annual Golden Globe awards took place in Los Angeles hosted by two of my favourite funny ladies, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The Hollywood elite were out on the red carpet for the start of awards season.
For any Brits wanting to catch up on the awards highlights from the ceremony are being shown on 5USA tonight at 10.00pm
Classic black was as expected a popular red carpet choice. Flying the flag for Britain singer Adele made her first public appearance since having her baby last year in another black Burberry gown, this time with an embellished neckline. She looked glamorous with her bouffant style hair. She knows what suits her and always looks elegant on the red carpet but I sometimes wish she'd surprise us all and step out in something more colourful! She took home the Golden Globe for 'Best Original Song' for 'Skyfall.' Emily Deschanel really stood out on the red carpet for me in this black Badgley Mischka gown with beaded shoulders. Both Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson chose Alexander McQueen gowns. Nicole's dress featured a mesh middle with gold studded embellishment. Kate's belted McQueen gown had long sleeves and a keyhole neckline. I loved the extravagant gold metallic collar, pure McQueen perfection!
Anne Hathaway was one of my best dressed of the night in this stunning white Chanel Couture two-piece covered in crystals. She won the Golden Globe for 'Best Supporting Actress' for her role in 'Les Misérables.' Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery also opted for white with a rich gold overlay in an Alexandre Vauthier Couture gown.
Coral was a hot colour trend on the red carpet. Zooey Deschanel wore a similar princess style shaped gown to what we've seen her wear before at the Emmy's last year. Her dress is from Oscar de la Renta's Pre-Fall 2013 collection. Zooey dressed her nails for the occasion with film strip nail art. Jessica Alba also chose an Oscar de la Renta dress. She accessorised with a statement diamond necklace and sported coral coloured lips. Claire Danes showed off her post baby body in an Atelier Versace dress with a plunging neckline and thigh high split.
Mermaid style fishtail gowns were a key trend amongst the stars last night. Amy Adams was another of my best dressed of the evening in this stunning nude Marchesa lace gown with a tulle skirt. Following her striking look at the People's Choice Awards last week Taylor Swift got it right again on the red carpet in a purple silk Donna Karan Atelier gown with a cutaway back and fishtail skirt. Hayden Panettiere opted for a light pink structured Roberto Cavalli gown with a subtle fishtail hem.
It wouldn't be an awards ceremony without a touch of sparkle! I loved Isla Fisher's shimmering floor length gown by Reem Acra. In contrast to the ballgowns on the red carpet Thandie Newton opted for a Swarovski crystal embellished mini dress from Giles's Spring 2013 collection.
A special mention goes to Lucy Liu's pretty floral print gown by Carolina Herrera. It seems to have received a mixed reaction in the press but I adored it! She styled her hair in a fishtail braid.
Last but not least Bradley Cooper (.. and not only because who wouldn't want to look at him?!) Livia Firth's Green Carpet Challenge promoting eco friendly style to the A-list is now in its fourth year. Bradley's eco-tux designed by Tom Ford was the first Green Carpet appearance of awards season.
