Globity globes

What an interesting roundup of outfits there was last night at les Globes d'Or! I found myself indifferent to very few things; I mostly either loved or hated people's choices.

I can't proceed with my top choices without giving a huge shout out to Richard Linklater and my love love love Wes Anderson- way to represent Austin with your amazing talent, personfolk!! Completely deserved.

And now, since you haven't already been completely inundated with pictures of all of these outfits...well...I just want to reinforce the awesome of some of the styling choices. In no particular order, but leading in with my secret husband, Señor Brody, in Givenchy:

uuuuuuuugh the sexy. It hurts my soul.

Anna Faris, in Reem Acra, being adorable with her husband Mr. Pratt (in a boring tux that I don't care about but it's fine ok sure):

They lurve each other. Or he's about to eat her face.

Mr. Clive Owen in Giorgio Armani. Deep green velvet, be still my heart!

that look on his face is stupid cute.

Dakota Johnson, in Chanel Haute Couture All the Sparkles plus lovely hair and makeup (I do wish she'd done a cool jewel-toned shoe and maybe big emerald studs, but no one asked me):

bonus: LEG!

Eddie Redmayne, in MOAR VELVET (Gucci):

such a cad.

Helen Mirren, looking sexier than should perhaps be allowed, in Dolce & Gabbana:

Jessica Chastain (hey, that's my middle name!) being characteristically beyond stunning in Atelier Versace:

bonus: perfect hair!

Throwing in a very controversial choice here, but I actually adore Kerry Washington's weird Mary Katrantzou dress. It's different and flattering and looks fun to wear, plus it's hard to mess up anything with that face.

antibonus: BAD SHOES

Leslie Mann, amazingly gorgeous human specimen, sunny in shimmery Kaufmanfranco:

bonus: no bonus. Did you see her face?

Julianne Moore, goddess, in custom Givenchy:

bonus: maybe a little too much botox going on in her world currently.

Louise Roe, whose Jenny Packham dress may be an ode to Ariel's sheet beach cover-up, but is still by my wedding dress designer and quite lovely (although aren't we done with braids yet? I vote yes):

Taylor Schilling in a dramatic tomato Ferragamo:

Dramatic Tomato is the name of my new emo punk band.

I'm such a sucker for a hot back-

bonus: the blonde girl's look in the background.

And ending with my absolute favorites. 

#4, the ADORABLE Emma Stone in a Lanvin jumpsuit with giant buttock bow:


#3 in my heart, Robin Wright in Ralph Lauren. This was another controversial one, but I think she looks sexy as everything + confident + über chic (I mean, isn't that her signature?), which is saying something when you can see a belly sliver. I just think this works perfectly on her and also I want to be her and also I'm always the most covered person in the room so maybe that's part of this whole adoration thing.

bonus: sexiest pixie ever.

#2 in my heart, Felicity Jones in Dior. So French! So perfect-fitting! Such a lovely peacock blue! Great sleek shiny hair! So classic and glamorous and yet utterly modern! Plus, how relaxed does she look? That must be hard to do on the red carpet, non?

And my absolute favorite, Sienna Miller in Miu Miu. I can't say enough good things about this. The whole styling is perfection: relaxed, sexy hair; simple, flattering makeup; deep v-neck without a necklace; simple shape enhanced with a delicate pattern and great beading and pleats, happy smile. You can just tell how great she feels- she's glowing!

another view to really see the hem and detail work:

Full success, Ms. Miller. Full. Success. Next time please to help out Ms. Knightley, won't you?
