Refreshing Fashion at 71st Golden Globe Awards

Not a lot of people get excited about award shows, but I do. The best part of it is of course the red-carpet pre-show fashion.  Watching how celebs wear their dress on TV gives me a better idea which ones I really like verses just seeing them in 2-D photos. So, that being said, I have watched the show in its entirety on Sunday night and here's what I've got to say....

The best looks at the golden awards belong to ladies who took fashion risks (Emma Watson who wore Christian Dior tunic with pants), reflected their personality-- the retro girl  (Zooey Deschanel), and a few who sizzled on the red carpet by avoiding conventional styles like  fishtail, mermaid, and revealing plunging-neckline and side-boobish gowns.

Vibrant hues like red and bright orange were among the most popular colors--worn by several stars, but I loved Lupita Nyong'o's Ralph Lauren get-up the best. She looked fabulous in that red hot cape dress even with minimal jewelry and make-up. I'm actually pleased to see Taylor Swift traded in her usual red carpet colors of white and gold for a surprisingly beautiful pomegranate and black Carolina Herrera gown. I could not believe Sandra Bullock's age because she absolutely lost years in Prabal Gurung's fantastic age-modifying simple and youthful gown.

With the beautiful California weather of 70 degrees in the winter, these ladies are making Spring seem closer than it is for the rest us who are still ugging around in our winter boots.

Previously, in 2012 Gwyneth Paltrow caused quite a stir at the Oscars wearing her all white Tom Ford cape dress creation.  At the MET ball last year, Stella McCartney's cape-style donned by Cameron Diaz was nothing short of amazing. Although capes are cool and theatrical, they have been featured on both best and worst-dressed list. I think Katy Perry's  Naeem Khan's cape dress looked great on her at the 2013 UNICEF snowflake ball, especially with the long straight black hair giving a more sultry and sexy vixen vibe.
