So I wasn’t going to do this.
On the eve of the beginning of Award Season, while reeling with excitement for the impending glamour that could only exist in a place like Hollywood, I decided that I wasn’t going to do a round-up of my favorite red carpet looks this year. Why? Because pulling pictures from HuffPost Style and posting them up seems a little “in the box.” But after seeing the red carpet showing from both the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards the number of ‘hits’ tremendously outweighed the ‘misses’ (who am I? E! Network ?!).
My jaw dropped when Lupita Nyong’o confidently stepped out in a bright red, strapless cape-dress by Ralph Lauren that was equal parts elegant and badass. The always stunning and very pregnant Kerry Washington so perfectly put her fashion foot forward and was glowing in a custom gown by Balenciaga. And I am still trying to recall a better tailored, more flattering gown than Reece Witherspoon’s turquoise Calvin Klein creation; red carpet queen Reece proves once again that fit is everything.
With so many red carpet moments worth mentioning, I present my top picks below. Whose looks did you love? And who are you looking forward to seeing on the BAFTA and Academy Award red carpets?
