Trend Spotter: Golden Globes 2011

More casual than the Oscars, fashion and makeup at the Golden Globes tends to play ahead on the style curve. Here’s a wrap-up of four key trends that I spotted on yesterday’s red carpet.

The Long and Short of It


If ever you needed proof that long-sleeved gowns aren’t just for the mother-of-the-bride, Anne Hathaway’s Armani Prive dress is it. Leading the charge of covered up beauties, Anne’s dress was at once of-the-moment and also Dynasty retro-esque.

It’s Easy Being Green


This year, the red carpet was a sea of emerald green. Even Angelina ditched her usual sombre uniform of black on black, for a long, lean, green Versace number.

Going Nude

From Eva to Halle, most of the A-list ditched a classic red lip for ‘barely there’ nude hues. Pairing natural lip colours with luminous skin; a hint of blush and sultry, smoky eyes resulted in a more understated look than is usually spotted during award’s season.

Getting a head start on 2011’s hair cut du jour was Sandra Bullock and Olivia Wilde. Sporting blunt, eyebrow grazing fringes (or depending on where you’re from – bangs!) they made a strong, sophisticated statement.

What did you think of this year’s Golden Globes? What were the red carpet hits and misses?
