Red Carpet Rundown for the Golden Globes 2021 by David Peck

It's feels like it's been decades since there was a real red carpet to cover. All sense of time has been lost this year. With award shows being postponed and held (mostly) virtually, we seem to be stuck in fashion limbo.
While I've missed red carpets, I admit that they were getting rather stale over the last few years. Few stars were taking risks, and almost everyone always looked beautiful, even if what they were wearing wasn't your favorite. It's hard to argue that any star that hits the carpet these days looks terrible.
If you're new around here, you may not know that I don't make best and worst dressed lists. I find them tacky and a little rude. Many of the stars without access to the best dresses have either been marginalized or simply don't have enough clout yet to command custom gowns or straight off the couture catwalks looks for their big night.
We talk about trends and ideas and how they might fit into your next gala or wedding look. With news that the COVID vaccine will be more readily available to everyone come May, it gives me hope that we can start working again on some outrageously gorgeous gowns for all the parties we've been missing.

Well Suited

Several ladies chose to go with a classic standby, a suit or dress that mimics a tailored suit. It's one of my favorite looks to create, and there are so many ways to interpret it. Suiting works on a variety of body types. Many of our clients hate big gowns and would be much more comfortable in pants. I say, why not?! Jazz it up, have fun, and play with volume and texture. You only live twice, according to James Bond, king of suits.

Go Big or Go Home

While many stars were at home or in a swanky hotel room, they didn't shy away from dramatic volume. And why should they?! After spending a year in quarantine and sweats, why not break out a big ball gown?
Something to note is that some of these gowns are not "flattering" in a traditional way, but because of the unusual circumstances, they could be shot in a much more editorial way, which I find SUPER fun. Fashion should be fun, and if you can't play dress-up every once in a while, what's the point?!

Studio 54 Vibes


Did anyone else get disco vibes? From patchwork sequins to draped satin gowns (that could also recall the 1930s era), stars could easily have been going to the famed NY nightclub. What I love is the use of COLOR and personality juxtaposed with languid satin simplicity. Anyone else want to travel back in time with me?

Cocktail Confection

 

There always tends to be a little confusion about the Golden Globes about whether it's a cocktail or black-tie event. I find this happens with galas and weddings as well when it's not specified on the invitation or it's at an "in-between" time. Some stars dug in their heels and went straight cocktail. Who can blame them when they look like a tall drink of (not) water.

Classic Beauty

There's something to be said for a classic gown in the right color that's well-tailored. Never out of style, always sure to be suited for the venue. The dress may not be the one everyone talks about, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

The Outliers

There are a few that just didn't fit the mold and I like that. Whether it's bold color or silhouette on a guy or a highly stylized editorial look. These might just be some of my favorites, but I'll never tell.
