Sometimes it seems like each awards season settles on the trendy metallic for that year and other times it seems to shift from awards show to awards show. For that reason, we make no predictions as to the lifeline of this particular trend, but for the Golden Globes at least, silver (and silver-adjacent) looks were reigning supreme.
Dakota Fanning in Armani Privé
Okay, maybe this is more of a shimmery blue than a silver, but STILL. Let’s give a Fanning a little encouragement for going nearly color-free and actually getting it right, for once. And to add to our confusion over the fact that we’re praising a Fanning for not wearing any color, we’re also going to have to go against our instincts and note that the row of bows down the back really make the look. Maybe not as much as that stunner of a necklace, but still. She looks youthfully Glam-Chic.
Debra Messing in Pamella Roland
Lady we love you, but you do dress like an aging drag queen sometimes. This is okay, but as far from fresh as a frock can get.
Indya Moore in Louis Vuitton
She’s gorgeous, which is helping this look tremendously. We think separates are a bit informal for the Globes and we think the look is overall a bit too goofy. We’re surprised to admit that we think the pieces could work as starting points for other looks at less formal events, but the ensemble as a whole isn’t working here.
Keri Russell in Monique Lhuillier
Can’t really argue with any of this. Go on being fabulous, girl. We’ll get out of your way.
Saoirse Ronan in Gucci
This, on the other hand, is a not. She looks like she’s wearing the lining of Liberace’s casket.
The swag effect is impossible to keep neat and visual broadens her.
Thandie Newton in Michael Kors Collection
YAAS, Miss Thandie! This is fabulous. Granted, we think the dress needs a little something to make it stand out. Fortunately, she’s got that hair, which is doing the job fabulously. Her styling makes the look.
Yalitza Aparicio in Miu Miu
Congrats to her, because she snagged the first delicately pretty Miu Miu we’ve seen in ages. We do wish it didn’t have that cutout, but the pleating in the skirt is really pretty. Her styling is flawless. The eye makeup and the headband really unify the look and make it right for her.
