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
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
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
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 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
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 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
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
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.
