Golden Globes 2015: Red Carpet Extravaganza and Cumberbatch the Great

Published January 12, 2015 by The Feminist

Last night the Golden Globes officially kicked off the most wonderful time of the year: awards season!

There were plenty of gorgeous dresses, some rather “meh” dresses and –unfortunately- the odd monstrosities.

And then there was Benedict Cumberbatch.

So get your inhalers ready, because this recap will take your breath away!

In the category “Safe is for pussies”:

It’s not easy to showcase a vavavoom cleavage, while keeping up a classy and elegant appearance (yes, I’m referring to you, Kim Kardashian), but Kate Hudson shows everyone how it is done.

Naomi Watts literally lets the sunshine in with this yellow Gucci gown

Metallic. Ombre. Feathers. These are all marvelous fashion trends, but putting them together in one outfit might often appear too ostrich-trying-to-be-a-disco-diva… at least that’s what I thought. Jullianne Moore demonstrates that sometimes “less is more” is total bullshit.

In the category “power suits for power women”:

Emma Stone in a flawless jumpsuit by Lanvin. (* feel free to start hyperventilating due to so much fabulousness.*)

Lorde looks- very befitting to her name- regal in this men suit with crop top.

In the category “ Classic goddesses”:

Diane Kruger confirms once again that she is part human, part goddess

Another goddess, ruling from Mount Olympia: it’s Jessica Chastain

Chrissy Teigen looks dreamy in Zuhair Murad. No wonder hubby John Legend feels like a god when he’s with her.

In the category “questionable friendship”:

Lena Dunham thought it would be fun to wear some remaining Christmas wrapping paper to the Golden Globes… no wait, it’s Lena in a dress by her good friend Zac Posen! Are you sure he’s your friend, darling?

Dear Keira, I know your pregnant, but that doesn’t give you the right to wear a 1950s tablecloth to the Golden Globes. Seriously. Only explanation? She must have pissed off bestie Herr Lagerfeld by getting pregnant (or as he would call it: “fat”) and this is how he “rewards” her.

In the category “I can’t believe that’s Crazy Eyes!”:

Uzo Aduba looks stunning in this sequined dress.

In the category “Lupita, Lupita, LUPITA!”:

It’s Lupita. (Duh.) In Giambattista Valli Couture. No comments necessary. Just sit back… and drool.

And if all this marvelous fashion wasn’t enough: Benedict Cumberbatch did it. Again. After U2 at the Oscars, he photobombed Meryl Streep… which makes him the most awesome human being on the planet. (But I’m assuming you already knew that 😉 )

CHECKMATE !!

CHECKMATE !!

Louis Vuitton has done it again! The check board trend is back and celebrities are absolutely loving it. Vuitton’s designer, the ever-brilliant Marc Jacobs, gave the audience a runway experience extraordinaire this spring.  Beautiful models descended from escalators onto a yellow-white checkered runway. It was like getting a glimpse of what this world could actually look like; a vision of pure and peaceful perfection. The perfect balance between playful elegance and an edgy retro-vibe.

I am completely smitten with the colour palet of black and white with touches of bright yellow. It’s cheeky and girly, but yet so feminine and sexy. There are no words to describe Marc Jacobs’ brilliant mind. The things he designs aren’t clothes. Damn, it’s not even fashion! It is a vision. On Life, on love, on liberty.

What I’m trying to say is: CHECK out these clothes and run to the stores to start your very own eye-popping game of CHECKERS!
