Each year between January and early March the entertainment industry and Hollywood is awash with diamonds, couture and red carpets. Awards season is a sight to behold for its ravishing style choices, sparkling jewels and jaw dropping faux pas and this year’s 2011 Golden Globes were certainly no exception.
The night’s most notable best dressed actresses included Olivia Wilde in a stunning chocolate brown bejeweled Marchesa dress complete with Tiffany jewelry. Wearing Monique Lhuillier, Catherine Zeta Jones dark green strapless perfectly offset her shoulder grazing Van Cleff and Arnels drop diamond marquis earrings. Another green stunner was Angelina Jolie who shocked many by wearing bright emerald backless Atelier gown.
Other notable stars at the 2011 Golden Globes were Jennifer Lopez who stunned in a white mermaid dress with a see through mini cape. While many questioned the dress no one questioned the exquisite jewelry which included a pair of earrings that were worth 3 million alone.
One of the night’s biggest winners was Natalie Portman who came with a belly concealing and bold pink satin strapless number with a rose detailing the front. But the tour de force of the outfit were Natalie’s accessories, most notably a stunning diamond Tiffany necklace worth an estimated 1 million dollars.
Those who resoundingly were not praised by the critics included Michelle Williams whose chose of an ill-fitting beige daisy printed dress left many scratching their heads. Another worst dressed nominee was stunner was Julianne Moore who completed her bold pink Lanvin look with a 79 carat choker from Bulgari.
During any awards show red carpet there are most definitely the winners and losers but then there are many who fall in the in between category which is just a question of opinion and preference. The true test of style is to defy the critics and stay with what you believe to be the most beautiful creation for you.
