The season for glamorous dresses and dapper suits has begun! The Golden Globes' red carpet is the year's first big show of Hollywood fashion glitz and it's the perfect setting where stars from both film and television gather for one big soirée and look fabulous!
I have to say that Sunday evening's Golden Globes really didn't set my fashion loins ablaze. Compared to last year's Golden Globes red carpet fashion, this year's fashion choices were utterly unimpressive. There was clearly a shortage of distinctive, jaw-dropping, wow-factor fashion especially for the ladies. Even the gentlemen's shoes worn at this award event were more exciting than most of the dresses worn by the ladies. Props to off-beat shoe wears like Denis O'Hare's Christian Louboutin's platform heels, Jason Sudekis's black and white Air Jordan 11 sneakers, and the "sock-less" Wiz Khalifa and Bryshere Gray's loafers.
But, alas, there were some notable runway hits that made The Doily Duck's top fashion picks. And here are my fashion favorites for both ladies and gentlemen for the 2016 Golden Globes:
LADIES - Top 3
1. Jane Wu
Actress Jane Wu was an absolute red carpet stunner in her metallic silver embroidered THEIA gown. Her body skimming, sequined detailed dress fit her perfectly like her own personal knight's armor! Moreover, her sleek pony tail and gorgeous matching clutch completed this classic silhouetted look.
2. Kate Bosworth
I loved Kate Bosworth's floor-length strapless pink sequined Dolce & Gabbana gown! The pink shimmering discs were beautiful especially when she gave the dress a whirl! And her Norman Silverman diamond earrings were gorgeous!
3. Alicia Vikander
Actress Alicia Vikander got my vote for most effortless glamour! Her ethereal, white pleated dress with short ruffle neck and bib-style front was simply elegant. I also loved Alicia's subtle detail accents like the crossed-at-back, sparkly droplet earrings, and hint of glittery eye shadow. But most of all, she brought her best accessory to the awards show, her date, Michael Fassbender!
Honorable Mention: Olivia Palermo
Socialite Olivia Palermo had the most playful and bold look of the evening. She wore a Delpozo cocktail dress with color-block printing, gorgeous gold leaf choker necklace, and two-toned ankle strap pumps. She was one of the few ladies to wear a short dress with pockets!!!
GENTLEMEN - Top 3
1. Oscar Isaac
Oscar Isaac was hands down the best dressed gentlemen at this year's Golden Globes! He looked handsome in his perfectly tailored custom tuxedo from Rag & Bone. That smile, that beard, that smolder...just oozes charm! And he won Best Actor for HBO's "Show Me a Hero", congratulations Oscar!
2. Ryan Gosling
What can I say, Ryan Gosling looks gorgeous in anything! He looked especially handsome in his white tuxedo jacket, black bow tie, and black suit pants!
3. Eddie Redmayne
Eddie Redmayne is the master at wearing distinctive men's wear! I loved his midnight blue two-button jacquard Gucci tux jacket dotted with bee embellishments.
Honorable Mention: Morgan Freeman
Morgan Freeman looked amazing in his all-black suit and bowtie! Most of all, I loved that he wore a turquoise, red, and white beaded Native American heishi necklace that totally popped with color! It was hands-down the best accessory of the night - such a beautiful and elegant choice.
Hottest "On-Stage" Couple of the Night
I don't think I am alone by picking Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt as my choice for "Hottest On-Stage Couple" of the night. Not only did they both look hot, they were quite the comedic duo on-stage as they introduced their film "The Big Short". Be still my beating heart!
