Working in Fashion, I’m automatically drawn to Red Carpet style and who’s wearing what. And while it’s not exactly normal minimalist behavior, it’s something I love. 

There’s always a variety of silhouettes and fabrications, and the 2017 Golden Globes were no exception. 

Below is my Best Dressed list for this years’ first major awards show. Because after all- a late Best Dressed list is better than none at all.

BRIE LARSON IN RODARTE

Why? An old Hollywood glam look from head to toe. I’m not normally one for simple sweetheart necklines on a glamorous red carpet, but this dress nailed it. 

VIOLA DAVIS IN MICHAEL KORS
 Why? The color. The style. The shape. She made a statement and I see some knock-offs in Michael Kors’ future. 

MANDY MOORE IN NAEEM KHAN

Why? Navy will never go out of style. Adding a plunging neckline, sheer shoulder detail and a cape makes this is a A+ in my book. 

EVAN RACHEL WOOD IN JOSEPH ALTUZARRA

Why? Power to the woman not wearing a dress. It’s masculine and elegant with a flared leg and bow neck detail. 

DREW BARRYMORE IN MONIQUE LHUILLIER

Why? She stayed true to her bohemian style with the perfect amount of sheer and a little bit of shine. 

NATALIE PORTMAN IN PRADA

Why? In true Jackie fashion, she’s perfectly poised but makes a statement with color. 

LILY COLLINS IN ZUHAIR MURAD

Why? I’m not usually a fan of big pink ball gowns, But her dark tonal hair and makeup compliment the lace blush dress perfectly. 

KRISTEN BELL IN JENNY PACKHAM

Why? Subtly sexy and classic with a plunging neckline and all-over black sparkle. 

HAILEE STEINFELD IN VERA WANG

Why? Another princess-inspired gown but with sheer cut outs to make it just edgy enough. Though, I could have done without the sleeves. 

Of course there was a not-so-best-dressed list, but we’re here to talk about the positives. 

I think the key to fashion, casual or dressy, is to feel confident in whatever you put on. For me, it’s cotton knit swing dresses. They’re easy, comfortable and can be dressed up or down throughout the year. They wouldn’t exactly make the cut on the Red Carpet- so I guess it’s a good thing I’m not attending any upcoming awards shows.
