It’s always a visceral thrill to see what Hollywood stars are wearing during awards season, and this morning’s Golden Globes was no exception. More than just beautiful clothes, it’s interesting to see stars wearing ‘directional’ pieces, or styles that point to new directions in fashion. Many times these styles end up on E!’s Fashion Police, or tabloid magazines’ worst-dressed lists, but fashion has always been about experimenting & pushing forward.
Of course there were lots of amazing gowns to look at, and I’ve always loved vintage/Old Hollywood, but today I found myself drawn to different pieces. Now these may not be the most gorgeous or intricate gowns, but these were the pieces I found most interesting on the red carpet–I loved the proportions, the interesting details, the unusual use of color, and, oh, the natural waist! What do you think of these gowns?
