We tried to resist but couldn’t help it! Award season is highly anticipated and we were glued to the T.V. screen for none other than the highly anticipated red carpet! There were some hits, some misses, and some that needed tweaking, but we want to focus on the few who hit it out of the park from head to toe. So without further adieu here are our picks from the Golden Globes!
Completely stunning! The hair was modern and added a nice edge to such this delicate sheer beaded dress. The nude flesh tone is completely on trend and I love how it was carried through from the accessories to the manicure. The midi-length of the dress complemented the perfect pointed toe shoe. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
This is honestly one of the best looks I’ve seen on Kate Hudson! I’m a sucker for a long sleeve black dress but this took It to another level. The gold detail on the waist along with the mermaid cut gives the illusion of a beautiful hourglass shape. The plunging keyhole adds the perfect dose of sexy since the rest of her is completely covered. Her make up is fresh and a great contrast to the dark and dramatic gown.
This is the epitome of cool. Ball gowns can be very “girly” but she managed to add some punk princess to the look. The gold beading adds a gilded edge to the soft winter white. Her oxblood clutch and nails were the perfect deep punch of color to aid the regal element. I love that her hair was out of her face, it allowed the neckline to shine!
This color popped! The perfectly paired red pointed shoe was spot on and complimented by the asymmetrical cut of the dress. The half exposed metallic belt added a bit of structure to accentuate her waist. Her straight her with a middle part pulled behind her ears is sleek. I love the cool grey nail polish against the bright red. This look was refreshing!
Making their debut in the 40’s, stealing a moment in the 80’s, and now having a major resurgence, the PEPLUM has a made a strong comeback! Why the craze? Well for starters its very flattering for different body types. If you have boyish, or athletic build, it’s going to give you the illusion of having curves. Remember we all are trying to achieve that hourglass shape. For those who already posses a curvy stature, this trend was made for you. Again, it places an emphasis on curves and highlights the idea of a small waist in ratio to a curvier hip or bum. Another benefit of the peplum regardless of body type is that it hits right at your waist flowing away from your body. Finally a top that shows your waist but hides any tummy imperfections! Now with any trend a simple set of guidelines is always helpful, lets address the FAQs. What type of peplum should I steer towards? I personally love a sleek or architectural peplum. Stay away from too much frill. Too much fabric will just add to the width of your midsection. What do I pair it with?If your peplum is integrated into your blouse or jacket I would stick to a slimmer silhouette on the bottom. A pencil skirt, skinny pant, or slim cropped trouser would be a match made in heaven. For those of us who are vertically challenged a skirt hemmed either right above or below the knee is best. Although this look is very flattering its important to remember that the peplum is horizontal, cutting the length of your body. For this reason it’s also best to avoid shoes that have an ankle strap. We want our legs to look as long and lean as possible. If your peplum is integrated into your skirt opt for a fitted top, the idea is to let the peplum do the work. Why do some peplums work and others don’t? What’s the difference?There are peplums that differ in where they hit. This could be based on your body type or what your pairing it with. For tops that are paired with higher rise skirts or shorts, wear it with a peplum that hits above or at your belly button. This is style also works for those with shorter torsos. If you’re tall or have a long torso, a low-set peplum will probably work best hitting right at your waist. Those with a heavier bottom should go for a peplum top vs. skirt, too much volume on the bottom gives the illusion of being wider.
Now that you’ve got the inside knowledge on one of the seasons hottest trend go for it!
