2018 Golden Globes

Actresses showed their solidarity against sexual harassment and assault in the entertainment industry by wearing black at last night’s Golden Globes. From a fashion perspective, their dresses were among the best I’ve ever seen at an awards event, because…well…black.

My picks for the night:

My Take on the Oscars 2017

The clear winner at last night’s Oscars was 16-year-old Auli’i Cravalho, and I’m not saying that just because my friend Sam Saboura styled her. I’m saying that because he did a spectacular job, and she looked stunning in everything she wore.

2013 Golden Globes

My inner fashion critic comes screaming to the surface during every awards show, and last night’s Golden Globe Awards were no exception. Here, in my humble opinion, are the hits of the evening:

Anne Hathaway in Chanel

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Claire Danes in Versace

Jessica Alba in Oscar de la Renta

Transitioning from best to worst, I think Tina Fey looked spectacular…Amy Poehler, not so much.

And the flops of the night:

Alyssa Milano

Alyssa Milano

Jessica Chastain (The expression on the face of the woman behind her pretty much sums up my feelings about this dress.)

Halle Berry (mainly because the bodice of this dress makes her look as if her right boob is melting)
