The most interesting tend on the 2012 Golden Globes Red Carpet
may well have been the prevalence of the whiter shades of pale.
From blush to oyster to bright white, some of the biggest names stepped out in soft through snowy hues.
Charlize Theron in Dior Couture
Elle Mc Pherson in bright white Zac Posen
Mary J Blige in a sparkly Michael Kors with feathers
Nicole Kidman in Versace
Jessica Alba in Gucci
When we did see color,
it was bold, alive and unapologetic.
Ever glamorous, ever sexy Helen Mirren looked sensational in deep blue Badgley Mishka
as did sex bomb Sofia Vergara in custom Vera Wang
Stacy Kiebler and Reese Witherspoon stood out in vibrant reds
Julianna Margulies cut a super svelte silhouette in Naeem Kahn
Maria Menoudos vibrant yellow
Heidi Klum looked spectacular in
with a stunning turquoise Lorraine Schwartz necklace
My personal favorite of the night was
the exquisite Kate Beckinsdale,
in a strapless, pale blush Roberto Cavalli,
Lorraine Schwartz jewels
and a Ferragamo clutch
For the most part this year the look was a much more fleshed out, healthy side of slim
with fewer actresses looking sickly thin, but did you see Madonna’s arms?
At some point you have to ask: why???
