72nd Golden Globes - My Favorite Looks and Moments

I originally wasn't going to write a Golden Globes recap post since I wasn't exactly super inspired by any of the looks at last night's award show, but there were so many heartwarming acceptance speeches and moments that I figured I might as well!

Some of my favorite trends:

Shimmer:

Julianne Moore - Givenchy
Diane Kruger - Emilia Wickstead
Anna Faris (Reem Acra) and Chris Pratt
Jessica Chastain - Atelier Versace
Naomi Watts - Gucci and Bulgari

Pants/Not-So-Basic-Black:

Emma Stone - Lanvin
Lorde - Narciso Rodriguez
Robin Wright - Ralph Lauren
Allison Tolman - An Indian Designer who's name I couldn't understand in one of her interviews

Red:

Allison Williams - Armani PrivĂ©
Heidi Klum - Atelier Versace

Jewel Tones:

Julia Goldani Telles - Carmen Marc Valvo
Katie Holmes = Marchesa
Lupita Nyong'o - Giambattista Valli Haute Couture

And the other end of the spectrum, White/Pastels:

Emily Blunt - Michael Kors
Sienna Miller - Miu Miu
Chrissy Teigen - Zuhair Murad

The Guys:

Jared Leto - Lanvin

And his Man Braid:

C/o Man Repeller

Common - Prada

Some of my favorite acceptance speeches included (in no particular order):
Gina Rodriguez: "I can and I did".
Michael Keaton: Best Friend = His son
Maggie Gyllenhaal: Thanks to her husband, "who is a lover of complicated women, obviously."
Common/John Legend: "Selma has awakened my humanity, and I thank you, Ava."
George Clooney: "Amal, I couldn’t be more proud to be your husband."
TransParent: "And it’s dedicated to you, my transparent, my Moppa" (+ Jeffrey Tambor's speech)
Matt Bomer: To his husband and kids, "I love you putting up with me when I was 130 pounds and really grumpy when you ate pizza in front of me."
Joanne Froggatt: "I heard you."
Billy Bob Thornton: (Simply) "Thank You"
(That's basically all of them, isn't it?)

Tina and Amy were great at hosting (again).

Some disappointments: 
Kerri Washington's dress.
Tina Fey getting to wear all of the pretty dresses, not to mention that sequined tuxedo!
Overall un-inspiration on the red carpet.


See how this year's trends compared to my recap last year in this post!
