Best Dressed

Being a designer, people ask my opinion about fashion a lot.  I'm happy to give it, though it's only an opinion and you know how the saying goes!  So, what did my taffetadarlings think of the Golden Globes last night?  There were a few disasters which I won't even touch on (why destroy the possibility of a potential future client, right?), but for the most part I thought that Hollywood did okay!

I'll start by awarding "best dressed" to my hostess for the evening, Wendy Brandes.  Wendy greeted me in a black tee shirt, black gym shorts and cozy slippers!  She's never looked better.  LOL... kidding.  It was that kind of evening -- the kind where it's best to stay indoors sipping Champagne, watching the hilarity that is Ricky Gervais in the comfort of your own home on the comfort of your own couch, safe from the wintry chill!!

Ricky should have busted out some of his dance moves last night

Okay, back to the show!  If I were to select a winner from last night's event, it would be Francisco Costa.  Who, some of you might ask?  Shame on you!  His name should be as familiar to you as Giorgio Armani or Marc Jacobs or... Calvin Klein... because he IS Calvin Klein.  Well, not literally, of course, but Mr. Costa has headed up the Calvin Klein Collection since 2003 when Mr. Klein retired.  Costa dressed my number one pick last night, Claire Danes as well as Emma Stone (who never looked better).

Emma Stone

Olivia Wilde looked stunning, but that was sure a whole lotta dress!  Co-presenter, Robert Pattinson didn't know where to stand when the two were on stage together.  There was just no room for him and the poor chap had to strain his neck to reach the mic.  Under her Marchesa dress (could have been just about anything), Ms. Wilde wore the most fabulous Louboutin stilettos!

My pick for the boys is, well, a BOY.  Jesse Eisenberg looked simply adorable and perfectly put together in Dolce & Gabbana.  Generally, I think the men did well last night... Ryan Gosling in Ferragammo, James Franco (a.k.a. my boyfriend) in Gucci and Robert Downey Jr. broke the mold, as per usual, and wore a grey Prada suit.  Fantastic.  And Michael Douglas was wearing Canali, but who really cares.  He just looked GREAT and healthy.  His opening line about a "standing o" was brilliant!

One final comment... I do love Tilda Swinton and appreciate that she has her own sense of style.  I would be happy to dress her!  Tilda wore Haider Ackermann before anyone knew who the hell he was.  Last night (in Jil Sander), I thought she looked quite striking, but also bore quite a striking resemblance to David Bowie.  I mean, she was definitely channelling 70's Bowie!

Tilda Swinton and David Bowie... or is it David Bowie and Tilda Swinton?


  1. boy do we think alike...haha...good!

  2. I'd do another award - Fashion's Darling Award - to the one (there's always one) who actually, gasp, paid for her outfit.

    I'm chagrinned and stunned at the parade of free clothes. Reached the point - hello, we actually KNOW who the designers are now - of why?

    Quelle sadness.

  3. Ha outfit definitely won for the evening.

    Tilda DOES look very much like Bowie!

  4. WOW...Olivia's shoes! Shame her dress covered her shoes (really she could have just worn crocks for all it mattered). She was my pick for sure. Yes, Tilda wtf? Why so severe all the time? At least she's consistent.

  5. I've been discussing Olivia's choice of dress and shoes all day with other ShoeHunting. While there's no debating the Louboutins are HOT, they were not the right pair at all for that dress. I don't care if they were hidden all night, silvertone shoes would have suited the dress much better. And if she wanted to wear such eyecatching shoes (and kudos to her!), she should have let them shine with a more leggy choice!

  6. I agree that Emma Stone looked great! I agree that Michael Douglas was looking so much better, which was nice to see (note: I only watched the red carpet, not the awards show). What did you think of Christina Hendricks?

  7. We did write the same post! Although, your David Bowie reference is genius! Didn't think of it, but you are so right!!
