And welcome to Awards Season, that magical time of year in which we see the trends alluded to during the Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Week back in September, filtered down onto the red carpet. As always there were some turbo hits (congratulations Emily Blunt), some epic fails (sorry Tina Fey and Mariah Carey) and some trends to hop to immediately if not sooner&
The Colour Purple
Remember that Pheobe Cates film from the 80s Drop Dead Fred? Well, even if you do, it\’s unlikely you remember the scene in which Drop Dead Fred protests to a purple dress saying it looks “like a giant bruise”. I do. Now, I have no idea why the opinion of a completely fictional â€“ not to mention imaginary â€“ movie character from the 80s meant so much to me, nonetheless, I have since had an aversion to purple. But it\’s something I\’m going to have to overcome. Purple was the resonating trend from the Globes, worn by no fewer than a half a dozen stars, including Diane Kruger, Fergie, Sandra Bullock, Leona Lewis and Rose Byrne. It was worn in virtually every shade, though the most on trend is a white based, fuchsia-esque purple as worn by Diane Kruger.
This was a huge one from the catwalks, and it has been executed perfectly here by Kate Bosworth, who I also like to call The Girl Who Always Makes Me Want Blonde Hair. Simple, and simply gorgeous.
Girl Next Door Glam
The Golden Globes are traditionally more low-key than the Oscars, though this is some of the most pared back beauty and hair I\’ve seen in years. Giving credence to the “natural beauty” trend that\’s coming our way next season. Beauties Heather Graham, Chloe Sevigny, Cameron Diaz and Maggie Gyllenhall all scraped textured hair back into buns and highlighted their best features with simple, complementary make-up.
Stay tuned my muses, still to come is a list of fashion and beauty misses from the GGs. What do you think of these trends, will you be buying some purple, twisting in a plait, and paring back your make-up?
Love and musings,
