Golden Globes

The Golden Globe awards have been running since 1944, and each year the dresses get more and more extravagant, and 2013 did not disappoint. Only the elite of the film industry are invited and although the awards are based on their performances, for me it should be based on their outfits.
       One outfit, which I was very impressed with was Taylor Swift's. Her aubergine DKNY fishtail number was beautiful, even if The Mirror did catch her out with a bra malfunction, but these things always happen. Her slicked back up-do went well with the strapped shoulders and open back. Taylor appeared very grown up and made a lovely change from seeing her in dressed down 'sneaker' look.

Another winner at the Golden Globes for me, was Emily Blunt. The actress looked amazing in Michael Kors when she turned up with John Krasinski who looked dapper in his bow tie suit. Her dress was of pure elegance, made from lace in a unique green, but almost golden colour. Her dress was also embellished with studs which made a nice contrast to the softness of the lace. She accessorized with cocktail jewel earrings and a neat bun. She embodied elegance at the Golden Globes.

One who never disappoints with her quirky wardrobe is Zooey Deshanel. Although her dress is not to my taste, I still think she looked very feminine and worked the Oscar De La Renta dress superbly. However, not only was it her dress that caught my eye but her fantastic nail art, and pearl accessories. It really brought the whole outfit together and gave her a classier look, whilst her nails were pure brilliance. 

Even if a celebrity has a beautiful dress, if their accessories and most importantly hair is a mess, then it ruins everything. Which is why I would like to mention Amanda Seyfried; who looked wonderful in her Givenchy Couture dress, but also had the perfect hair style. Her long blonde locks complimented her blush coloured dress and looked naturally waved. Her hair looked effortless but preened at the same time, and something I would love to try out on myself.
