It’s the very start of the awards season, possibly my favourite time of the year. Before The Golden Globes on Sunday I thought I’d do a quick red carpet round up of some of the looks we’ve seen at the events leading up to kick off.
There was the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala at the beginning of the week where we saw the lovely Sandra Bullock in a vibrant pink and orange Alex Perry dress. We’ve seen her in quite a few colourful looks throughout her promo tour for Gravity and other appearances, so I hope she doesn’t fall back to black any time soon! The absolutely amazing Lupita Nyong’o, receiving a lot of praise for her role in the hotly-tipped for picture of the year 12 Years A Slave. The newcomer has had a fabulous red carpet run towards the end of 2013 and will no doubt continue to do so, I can’t wait for what’s to come, she wore a beautiful Elie Saab dress to the event. And Naomie Harris, another actress who had a perfect promo tour for Mandela: Walk to Freedom, appeared on the red carpet in one of my favourite designers Naeem Khan.
Next up was the New York Critics’ Circle Film Awards, some may sit on the fence with Cate Blanchett but she has such a unique sense of style that whenever she comes to a major red carpet she is going to bring you everything. I really like this Antonio Berardi dress she wore, it’s something only a select few people could pull off and she does it with aplomb. Deserved mention goes to Melonie Diaz who is doing the awards circuit alongside her Fruitvale co-star Michael B. Jordan, she wore another one of my favourite designers – Cushnie et Ochs. They have this amazing talent to create the perfect cut-outs and sleek lines, I adore this ‘negative strap’ dress on Melonie sexy but not trashy like Malin Akerman’s attempt to wear the designer duo.
Then we had the People’s Choice Awards mid-week with a few celebs turning up to collect their awards, from Sandra Bullock in another colourful creation by Peter Pilotto to Jessica Alba in a sexy white Jason Wu frock. My two favourites from the event were as always whenever she is on the red carpet, Nina Dobrev in a bejewelled Jenny Packham bodycon midi and Anna Faris in a stunning Naeem Khan two piece suit.
