Golden Globes 2018 Red Carpet Trends: Velvet, Emeralds & Sequins Ruled the Night

0

Hollywood’s biggest and most talented stars made an elegant and powerful statement at the 75th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, stepping out in chic all-black ensembles in support of the Time’s Up initiative.

For this year’s celebration, women from all areas of the entertainment industry encouraged attendees to wear the dark tone as a way of expressing solidarity for victims of sexual harassment and misconduct in Hollywood.

The red carpet was full of black gowns, suits and jumpsuits, each uniquely styled to show off the celebrity’s distinctive personalities.

Stylist Erica Cloud told ET before the ceremony that we would see «a lot of variety” in the black outfits, adding that celebs would still incorporate their personal style into what they wear. “We’re all in this together, but we’re all different. I think overall it will be a beautiful scene.»

And a stunning scene it was, with many black outfits still standing out with the help of jaw-dropping jewels, exquisite details and delicate fabrics.

ET is rounding up the hottest trends that appeared on the all-black red carpet.

Velvet

Men and women alike opted for the woven tufted fabric and softer feel. Sebastian Stan, Sterling K Brown, William H. Macy, Neil Patrick Harris and James Franco represented for the guys.

Sparkles and Shimmer

No better way to catch the cameras’ attention than with a little shine! Ava DuVernay, Geena Davis, Octavia Spencer, Chrissy Metz, and Sarah Paulson added a touch of lush to their all-black looks by dressing their outfits up with sequins.

Kerry Washington dazzled in a strapless Prabal Gurung sequined creation with a high slit. Handmaid’s Tale star Yvonne Strahovski also sizzled in a black sequin gown by KaufmanFranco and even Dave Franco added a touch of shine with his Saint Laurent blazer, which features crystals on the lapel.

Red Lips

Crimson lips were a favorite for select beauties, including Susan Sarandon, Claire Foy, Ashley Judd and Natalie Portman to name a few. Tracee Ellis Ross seductively donned a bold red lip to complete her smashing look.

Mandy Moore and Emma Watson’s bright cherry lipstick took a more playful approach. Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain and Isabelle Huppert made red lips look chic and elegant.

0

Awards season officially kicks off on Sunday, with the 75th Golden Globe Awards. This year — apart from honoring the best in film and television — the annual ceremony will also be protesting sexual harassment and misconduct in Hollywood in a unique manner.

Many actors and actresses (including Meryl Streep, Jessica Chastain and Emma Stone) will be donning black ensembles to stand in solidarity with sexual harassment victims and those who have been treated unfairly in Hollywood. After a slew of sexual misconduct allegations were made public in 2017, women in the entertainment industry are taking a stand and joining forces to make their voices heard.

As the city of stars prepares for the big night, ET is gathering up a handful of designer gowns from the latest collections that could be spotted on the red carpet.

Dior

Among the gowns that will likely make an appearance on the red carpet are artistic director’s Maria Grazia Chiuri’s designs that perfectly capture the essence of a bold and elegant woman who isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind.

El vestido más predecible y esperado de la Gala Met 2017

0

Después de su look durante la ceremonia de los Oscar, las miradas y expectativas recaían sobre Dakota Johnson. Sobre ella y sobre su estilista, Kate Young, que en Instagram dejaba hace unas horas un pequeño alegato que no hacía sino subir todavía más la apuesta. Todo apuntaba a que ambas volverían a realizar un canto de amor al Gucci de Alessandro Michele, ya sea por cuestiones laborales, ya sea por una verdadera pasión por la filosofía deliberadamente romántica y old school del italiano. Pero, ¿no sería eso saltarse el dress code de la Gala Met 2017? Puede, porque si hay dos escuelas estéticas alejadas, son las de Rei Kawakubo y Michele. Y, sin embargo, no solamente han existido puntos de encuentro, sino que se ha producido la simbiosis más perfecta que se podría haber imaginado.

Los volantes rizados, el coqueteo con las flores, la falda ajustada y larga hasta fundirse con el suelo, la cintura marcada… Sin dejar de ser un vestido de alfombra roja de manual, de esos con los que una se asegura los elogios, todo respira ese halo que requiere un compromiso estilístico total, algo que, en realidad, también sucede con Kawakubo: no todos pueden lucir una creación de Michele (y no en el sentido más evidente), como tampoco todos están hechos para llevar piezas de Commes des Garçons. Y Dakota es una de esas personas que por un motivo u otro lo ha conseguido.

Pero la verdadera magia del que ha resultado ser uno de los vestidos más perfectos reside, en realidad, en el color. Sí, tal cual. ¿Quién hubiese imaginado que podría existir un Gucci negro? Pues se ha hecho realidad.
