10 Best Dressed Women at the Golden Globes

I love sitting and watching awards shows where the world’s most famous celebrities walk down the red carpet, showcasing their amazing dresses and hair.  I can’t even begin to imagine how much time goes into getting ready for one of these shows.  As someone who loves fashion, I certainly appreciate the time and energy they put into being ‘Red Carpet Ready,’ but I appreciate it from the comfort of my couch…in my pajamas…with a glass of wine.

I have my top 10 fashion picks from the Golden Globes:

1.  Julianne Moore

I really, really love this dress.  The ombre is perfect, and then when it is paired with sequins and feathers, you couldn’t ask for a more fabulous combo.  Julianne Moore looked absolutely stunning, AND she got Eric Wilson’s vote for best dressed!

2.  Reese Witherspoon

I love Reese Witherspoon.  Ever since she starred in Legally Blonde as the legendary Elle Woods, she has been at the top of my list of favorite actresses.  I have yet to see a movie with her in it that I didn’t like.  Sure, there were some that made me sad (i.e. Water for Elephants) but her ability to portray characters is flawless.  Speaking of flawless, can we talk about this dress?  The silver goes perfectly with her classic blond hair, creating a timeless look that is perfect for the Red Carpet.

3.  Amal Clooney

Amal Clooney in Dior

Hearts broke around the world when George Clooney got married, but I have to say, she is definitely a match for him.  I can’t even be sad that the 53-year-old is no longer a bachelor.  She is absolutely stunning.

4.  Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

I’m not usually one to say that showing a lot of skin looks good, but J. Lo has knocked it out of the park.  She looks incredible, without it being too much.  If someone had described this dress/ensemble to me, I probably would have winced a little bit, but she pulls it off very gracefully.  I also have to make a comment about her shoes.  I’m pretty much obsessed with them.  This style of shoe is definitely on the top of my list for trends of 2015, and I like hers even more because they have some sparkle to them!

5.  Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson

This is a dress that can only be pulled off by Kate Hudson.  I swear, you can’t see any lines or anything.  If I tried to wear something like this, it would be bunching and lining all over the place.  The white looks fabulous on her and I love the cutouts on the side.  Is this Darcy Rhone or what?

6.  Amy Adams

Amy Adams in Versace

Amy Adams has a very traditional, vintage charm about her in this dress.  Especially paired with the hair.  It sort of reminds me of a modern-day spin on fashion from the 1940s.  The ruching and pleats are so flattering and make her look tiny, while still accenting her natural curves.  Also, did you notice that her shoes match?

7.  Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen

I love that her dress is white, textured and belted.  I love anything belted, I think it adds a little extra something to any outfit.  And the texture of her dress is perfect, with the cream color being a perfect compliment to her skin tone and hair.  I wonder what’s in her bag?  I’ve also wondered why more celebrities don’t carry bags.  What do they do with all of their stuff?

8.  Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston in Saint Laurent

Jennifer Aniston just gets more fabulous with age.  This black dress is incredibly flattering and makes her arms look great!  And again, with the shoe style I love.

9.  Greer Grammer

Golden Globes

I’ve never seen anything with Greer Grammer in it, but I loved her dress from the moment I saw it.  First, it’s pink.  Second, it’s sparkly.  And third, it is a ballgown.  Really.  I love the dress, and her hair really looks great.  (also, she has a purse too!)

10.  Leslie Mann

Golden Globes

Leslie Mann is quickly rising to the top of my list of favorite actresses.  She is hilarious!  Did anyone see ‘The Other Woman?’  I mean, really.  I could not stop laughing.  Even thinking about it, I’m chuckling.  She seriously rocked the yellow dress, which I know is hard to do.  It could easily go the Big Bird route, but she pulled it off perfectly.  I am also loving the ombre in her hair.

Did anyone else watch the Golden Globes?  I feel like I should mention George Clooney’s speech and how he included a bit about his wife.  It was really, really sweet and definitely made me have that much more respect for him.

I got all the pictures from InStyle’s Red Carpet Arrival gallery.  You can view the gallery here.  Trust me, it’s worth the ten minutes it’ll take you to scroll through.




Toms, Toms, Toms

I remember when Toms first came out with their original, flat shoes.  I bought the gold glitter ones (of course!).  Now they have all kinds of different styles ranging from wedges to flats and basically everything in between.  I love that they offer different heel heights, as well as different patterns on the toes.  AND they have more than one type of wedge.  It’s about time I had some comfortable heels to wear!  I’m the worst about putting my feet in pain for a little bit of fashion.  But not anymore for this girl!  I just bought a pair of the natural crochet strappy wedges and I’m already obsessed.

Following my purchase, I made my way to Pinterest to seek some inspiration for different ways to wear them.  I like to make shoes as versatile as possible…These are some of my favs!

On My Radar

1.  Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant

I saw this on Facebook the other day and didn’t really think much of it and scrolled by it without watching.  Then, I was watching Good Morning America the other day and they showed it and I was absolutely rolling!  I almost spilled my coffee I was laughing so hard!

2.  Jean Jackets

On a whim, I bought a jean jacket.  One of my best friends wears hers religiously, but I’ve never really been one to wear jean jackets.  I saw one that I really liked so I decided to just buy it and see what happened.  I’ve got to say, I’m pleasantly surprised.  It is so versatile and I feel like it is such a staple that I can’t believe I didn’t have one before.  If you don’t have one, go get one.  Seriously.

3.  Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas

I’ve loved Ginnifer Goodwin since I first saw her in He’s Just Not That Into You, then when she starred in Something Borrowed as Rachel I knew she was quickly rising to the top of my list of favorite actresses.  When I discovered she played Snow White in Once Upon A Time that was the final thing that made her my favorite actress.  She is so sweet and genuine, and literally everything you read about her is nice.  She and Josh Dallas (who plays Prince Charming on Once Upon a Time) are having a baby and just got married!! I mean, how cute are they?

4.  Dancing With The Stars Disney Night

As if I didn’t love this song enough already, Dancing with the Stars featured it during their Disney night.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve already watched it.  It is amazing.  I’m not kidding.

5.  Pharrell Crying Over ‘Happy’

I liked the song the first couple of times it played but now I’m a little bit tired of it.  However, that doesn’t stop me from appreciating how humble Pharrell is.  There aren’t many artists who cry over their songs, but he did and I will forever be impressed by him.

6.  Frat Boys Dance The Evolution Of Justin Timberlake

All I have to say about this is that you should watch it.   It speaks for itself.


I go back and forth about whether or not I like lipstick.  Sometimes, I feel like it adds the perfect splash of color to my face, and other times I feel like it is too much trouble (making sure it’s even, keeping it off your teeth, smudging, etc.)

I truly believe that Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf brought the lipstick trend back into the fold.  And now, whenever I look up make-up or fashion on Pinterest, I find that many of the women are wearing lip color, and it usually is one of my favorite accessories in their ensemble, which leads me back to the lipstick team.

These are some of my favorite images of how much of an impression lipstick can make!

Is it too Cruella?

Growing up, 101 Dalmatians was my favorite Disney movie.  It was my go-to movie every time my parents asked what I wanted to watch.  I was always confused as to why Cruella wanted to wear dalmatian coats, etc.  Now that I’m older I understand the draw of spots – but of the faux variety.

Looking for some great ways to wear your spots?  Look no further!



I’m all about some smoking shoes this season, and the dalmatian-smoking shoe combination has my head spinning!  I’ve paired them with a quilted leather skirt for some contrast, plus some red and cold as accent colors.  I love black, white and red together and gold accessories top off the combo!



I love all the shapes going on here!  The round purse compliments the spots in the dress while the pointed-toe shoes add a nice contrast to the otherwise soft lines in the outfit.  I LOVE this dress.  It is sassy and classic.  Did anyone see Kate Middleton wear the dalmatian coat?  This dress reminds me of a more wearable (aka: casual) version of her coat.  The red tights add a little pizazz to the dress.  Don’t like red tights?  Wear black instead!



I love the ruffles of the blouse paired with this feminine cut skirt.  The bow on the shoes and the cape really make this a feminine ensemble.  I’m such a girly girl that this is perfect.  Since only the shoes and belt are red, the red lipstick adds a nice balance to the outfit so the combination is linear and not just on the bottom half!



In true Cruella form, we’ve got a dalmatian patterned coat!  Again, we’ve got the black, white and red color combination with gold accents, but really.  Isn’t it a great combo?!
