The 71st annual awards show in Los Angeles reportedly drew in the most viewers in 10 years on Sunday night. Though I wasn’t one of them, as I don’t own a television, I have spent some time flicking through the red carpet slideshows to find the best dressed.
The first one I saw was a dazzling Zoe Saldana (isn’t she always?) in- wouldn’t you know it- Prabal Gurung! The PR showroom where I am doing my internship represents Prabal and I often am handling his designs which may explain my favouring him, other than the fact that he’s fantastic. The clashed prints are streamlined by the elegant sloping cuts and a pristinely-shaped neckline to die for. Accesorised perfectly with ballerina pink satin pumps and hair pulled back, the only thing I would change is the lipcolour for perhaps a faint purple or deep pink.
I then noticed Naomi Watts matching in Tom Ford with her husband Liev Schreiber. The champagne hue works perfectly against her lightly tanned skin and crisp blue eyes. It does not match her blonde hair but complements the highlights as it sparkles only just enough as not to overwhelm. I always find halter necklines to be the most elegant and flattering while the subtle slits on the left chest and ribs seem to caress the heart- a stunning and timeless dress indeed.
Newcomer to the American film audience Adele Exarchopoulos is already a Miu Miu editorial model through her friendship with co-star in Blue Is The Warmest Colour Lea Seydoux, already one of Miuccia Prada’s muses as the face of Prada Candy. She has worn the label numerous times on the red carpet but I have not seen her look as elegantly beautiful as she does here. The cut is made for her figure and the colour is romantically symbolic of the independent film that brought her to the Golden Globes. The train is a work of art, Adele glistens. I appreciate keeping makeup and jewels to a minimum and keeping the black nails, it only strengthens the whole look.
