This past Sunday The Golden Globes kicked off the start of award season. Aside from The Oscars, The Golden Globes is one of the most highly anticipated award shows for it’s red carpet style appeal. The ladies of television and films swarm the red carpet in couture designs that set the style for the season to come. Golden Globes red carpet trends often lead the fashion radar for the remainder of award season. Let us take a look at the details that graced the red carpet on Sunday, and the best 2017 Golden Globes red carpet trends. From fabric to patterns and color and texture trends.
It is always a pleasant surprise to see a bold floral print during winter and so early in the year. It reminds us that true ladies of style never dwell on those age old “fashion rules”, and instead celebrate patterns and prints all year long. It is a style theory we also celebrate here at artTECA; you will find every piece in our collection is graced with artistic patterns that are perfect for any day, any time of the year.
Not only were the starlets mad for floral, but they displayed their love for the print in unique ways. For instance, Michelle Williams showed it off via floral patterned lace. Laura Dern donned a heavily printed dress, with a repeating pattern of flowers. And Lola Kirke opted for flowers of the embroidered kind, with a dress by Andrew Gn.
One of the most worn trends of the evening were dresses featuring embellishments. The glitzy alternative to the more obvious sequins (which was still a golden globe red carpet trend this year) offers a sophistication and glamour all at once.
2017 Golden Globe favorite, Emma Stone, wore a Valentino dress that was delicate and youthful with it’s embellishments of silver stars. Nicole Kidman wore a more out of the box gown by McQueen, that not only featured the embellished trend but also had unique sleeves and a tattered ruffled hem. Drew Barrymore took to the trend a bit less literally, as her Monique Lhuillier dress payed homage to the embellishment love, while keeping her look sleek and classic.
Tulle is always a great choice for red carpet affairs. There is something elegant and timeless about the fabric. This year’s Golden Globes were no different, with actresses embracing this fabric that offers such a feminine feel. Whether it was a tulle skirt, like the one Julliane Hough wore, or a completely tulle frock like Gillian Anderson’s Jenny Packham gown.
The most impressive tulle dress of the evening was Haley Steinfield’s Vera Wang gown. The soft lavender number was detailed and layered in sheer tulle, giving it beautiful movement.
Metallic never fails to make a statement. These actresses kept their looks simple and let the metallic do the talking, as one of the most worn trends on the red carpet last Sunday. Regina King‘s silver dress was a prime example of simplicity in silhouette allowing for the trend be featured in elegance.
Priyanka Chopra was a knock out in her custom made golden Ralph Lauren dress. Newbie Ruth Nega stood out on Sunday as not only a breakout film star, but also a breakout in fashion and definitely one to look out for in her Louis Vuitton zipper gown. All three of these gowns were unique, yet simple in structure-which let the bold metallics have their moment.
With Spring still a couple of months away, it was a pleasant surprise to see yellow dominate the red carpet last Sunday. And not just any yellow, but canary yellow. Because this particular shade of yellow is so vibrant and bold, the actresses that wore this trend opted for dresses of simple and classic structures, which allowed the color to be far from overbearing. We actually couldn’t help but think of our very own printed silk scarf that features this beautiful shade of yellow, while remaining a sophisticated piece as well.
Maise Williams wore a modernly cut gown by London based designer Ong Oaj Pairam. Viola Davis, who took home a Golden Globe, looked elegant in her one shoulder Michael Kors gown. Still simple in structure, yet packed with personality was Natalie Portman’s gown. The 60’s inspired long sleeve and embellished detailed gown, by Prada, was a perfect fit for the expecting mom.
These actresses took “pretty in pink” to the next level in their designer gowns. One of the most talked about moments of the red carpet was Lily Collins in a Zuhair Murad design. In fact, Collins combined two of the prominent trends from that evening, both a shade of pink and embellishments. Felicity Jones donned a Gucci gown, complete with a soft tulle skit and a grommet bow belt. Lastly, Angela Basset’s Christian Soriano dress wore a bolder shade of pink and more fitted silhouette that fit her like a glove.
You would think after the plethora of sequins that fills the streets during the holiday season, especially New Years Eve, sequins would be redundant on the red carpet so early in the year. However, that could not be further from the truth. Actresses turned the overly worn fabric into enviable designs that were classic and chic.
From just a touch of sequin appliqué, like actress Thandie Newton’s dress that seemed to mimic fire, to fully blown sequin love like actresses Claire Foy (who took home a Gold Globe) and Amy Adams. Claire’s dress was created by London based designer ERDEM and Amy Adams’ sleek dress is by Tom Ford.
That’s a wrap on The Best 2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet Trends. As mentioned earlier, The Golden Globes are known as the fashion kick off to the award season. The trends on the red carpet are usually ones that leave a lasting impression in the fashion sphere for the season to come.
