Red Carpet GLAMOUR

Tonight the Golden Globe awards were being presented at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. 
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association's annual Golden Globe Awards has enabled the non-profit organization to donate more than 12 Million dollars over seventeen years to entertainment related charities.

The awards..........the nominations.......... the winners........... the red carpet. 
The red carpet pre-shows are as much of a fan fare as the awards. In addition to recognizing the talent of many actors, directors, writers, producers in television and film.....there is the fashion.

Here are my awards for red carpet fashion from the Golden Globes 2012.

Jessica Alba                    getty
My number one pick is this beautiful dress that Jessica Alba wore. Jessica was a vision of elegance in a mauve chiffon gown with seed beading and a soft drape trane. 

Julie Bowen     

Julie Bowen in a soft blush tone organza gown by Reem Acra. There were three actresses on the red carpet who wore fashions by Reem Acra. This old Hollywood style gown would be my choice.

Jessica Chastain                     reuters

Actress Jessica Chastain wore this white Givenchy gown with delicate pearl beading around the neckline and throughout the soft flow of the gown. Jessica was elegant and sophisticated.

Maria Menounos                      getty
Not many women could wear this colour of gown and look so stunning, but Maria Menounos presents a picture of beauty and confidence in this electrifying yellow bead gown. The lines of the dress are perfectly simple and gorgeous all at the same time.

Morena Baccarin                                        getty
The award for pure fresh beauty should go to Morena Baccarin. She is seductively beautiful with a million watt smile and sparkling eyes..... and I seriously want hair like hers. 
She is gorgeous and Glamourous!

Octavia Spencer                           getty
Best Supporting Actress award went to Octavia Spencer for her role in The Help. I literally clapped my hands when she won, if you haven't seen this movie you must.
Octavia walked the red carpet in her mauve ruched chiffon gown and flashed her 4 inch heeled silver Louboutin shoes. She wore the look of confidence and soft beauty.

Viola Davis                                       getty

Best Actress Nominee Voila Davis {The Help}, who always dazzles with her incredible smile, took the wattage up several degrees last night when she wore this beautiful one shoulder ruby chiffon gown. 

Helen Mirren                                    getty
Dame Helen Mirren looks beautiful in this navy gown with crystal belt and matching evening bag. Helen is glowing and always makes fashion choices that compliment her incredibly fit and toned body.

Nicole Richie                               reuters
 Nicole Richie looks stunning in this silver body hugging gown by Julien Macdonald. Her long hair was creatively styled partially up but left to flow over her shoulders {styled by Sauve hair professionals}.

Charlize Theron in DIOR

Charlize Theron was one of many actresses who wore a soft blush colour. The plunging neckline {or lack there of} was highlighted with an equally dramatic front slit and soft chiffon oversized bow.

Nicole Kidman                                getty

Stepping on the red carpet wearing the trend of a pale and soft pallet was Nicole Kidman. Ms. Kidman's Versace gown is a soft silver grey adorned with gold beading. 

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt               reuters
This is one of the rare images of Angelina smiling at tonight's award red carpet walk. With her hair pulled back severely and for the most part a very solemn look, it distracted from Angelina's beautiful gown. The white satin Versace gown is highlighted with just a touch of red, and it was perfectly fitted to her very tiny frame. 
The gown is in a classic style and fabric, and is true red carpet Glamour.

Sarah Hyland

And then there is the moment that no actress ever wants to have to face. Sarah Hyland, who is probably a size 0, had the zipper break on her vintage Dolce and Gabbana gown. Just as the young actress from Modern Family stepped on to the red carpet she felt her dress suddenly 'burst' and start to slip off of her tiny body. She retained her dignity and was escorted to the back of the carpet area where crew sewed her gown closed.
She carried on with red carpet interviews and laughed about the whole thing.

This is just the beginning of the red carpet season ~ let the Glamour begin.
