Full disclosure: We’re not the biggest fans of “trend reporting” when it comes to award shows. Firstly, a trend cannot be determined from a solitary four-hour event. Secondly, anything that allows Us Weekly and Giuliana Rancic to try to analyze fashion is annoying. And, let’s be honest, the red carpet tends to be congested with derivative fashion; generic columns that are perfectly fine but don’t push the needle forward. We were happily surprised, though, that at Sunday night’s Golden Globes, actresses were bolder, choosing more interesting looks than expected and, in some cases, wore actual fashion.
Also, there were “trends” (in a highly microcosmic way). It was actually strange how much silver and shoulders were going on. It was like Elizabeth Stewart, Leslie Fremar, and Petra Flannery got together and agreed to make it a thing. Below, we discuss the most noteworthy sartorial moments of the night.
