Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, a presenter at last night’s Golden Globe Awards, walked the red carpet in a black and gold gown by Marc Jacobs. The dress featured floral appliqués and a bloom over her shoulder. The 38-year-old actress, who took home a Golden Globe of her own last year for her role in The Honorable Woman, accessorized with gold drop earrings, gold bangles and a gold clutch. Her makeup was subtle, except for her fuchsia lipstick (NARS Audacious Lipstick in Michiyo). It’s not my favorite look for Maggie. The dress is okay, her hair looks great, but the lipstick is too pink for the gown. Her look did come in handy, I suppose, if she didn’t feel like being sociable at the HBO after party, as she seemingly blended into the background.
Joanne Froggatt, nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Limited Series or TV Movie for her role as Anna Bates on Downton Abbey, looked positively radiant in her Reem Acra gown. She may not have won an award this year, but her look is absolutely a winner. The periwinkle blue shade perfectly complements her hair and skin tone and I love the plunging neckline. Her hair and makeup are on point and I think it was a smart move that she opted no to wear a necklace. The Chopard pink diamond earrings she’s wearing, valued at $1 million, were a perfect accessory, along with her sleek silver clutch.
Malin Akerman also hit the red carpet in Reem Acra. The 37-year-old actress similarly went necklace-less in a strapless silver beaded gown with a sweetheart neckline and a peplum detail. Hair-wise, Malin opted to slick back her locks with a sleek bun and wore dark silver nail polish. She accessorized with subtle diamond earrings and rings and a teeny silver clutch. (What can she possibly fit in that?) Initially, I wasn’t overly fond of this look, as I’m not a peplum fan, but once I saw the side view, I was won over. She pulls off this look and she looks like she’s having fun.
E! hostess Giuliana Rancic gave us 2 looks last night. For her pre-show red carpet coverage, she donned a red lace gown by Mac Duggal, accompanied by shoes by Manolo Blahnik and Forevermark diamond earrings and bracelet. She posted a picture on her Instagram with the caption “Golden Globes look #1” and I couldn’t agree more. It is #1 in my book. I love this dress. How better to cover the red carpet than to wear red? The color looks great with her tan skin and blond hair and I am a big fan of the high neck and long sleeves. I am coveting that bracelet as well.
Afterwards, the 41-year-old hit the red carpet herself in a coral gown by Australian designer Alex Perry featuring floor-length sleeve and cutouts at her waist. She was wearing Manolo Blahnik shoes, although you can’t see them, and more Forevermark diamond jewels. The color is alright, the sleeves are magnificent, but I can’t with the cutouts. I think maybe a lower cut neckline would have been a better substitute. But hey, you hang on to this dress, Giuliana, you can send me the red one!
