Deemed by several critics as the best in a while, the red carpet at the most recent Golden Globes was chock-full of runway moments. From Anne Hathaway wearing the closing look of the Armani Privé Fall 2010 Couture show, to both Catherine Zeta Jones and Dianna Agron wearing pieces from Pre-Fall 2011 collections (Monique Lhullier and J. Mendel, respectively), the majority of which are still in the process of debuting, the idea that the runway is too conceptual for the masses may be slipping from predominance.
Green seemed to be the color du jour as Angelina Jolie, CZJ, Elizabeth Moss and Mila Kunis all arrived in versions of emerald. There seemed to be a stylistic divergence occurring on the red carpet that night as well. On the one hand, Claire Danes and Emma Stone channeled clean minimalism, both wearing custom Calvin Klein Collection pieces. On the other, CZJ and Mandy Moore chose indulgent extravagance with full Monique Lhuillier gowns.
For many critics, this red carpet was especially refreshing. While names on the best and worst dressed lists ranged, the general consensus is in: If stars keep dressing like this, we’ll look forward to the next red carpet event.
