Life in the Fast Lane

A TRIATHLETE'S MULTISPORT ADVENTURES, TRAVELS, RANDOM MUSINGS, AND CHRONICLES OF HER OTHERWISE ORDINARY LIFE

Keepin' It Classy

By 9:38 AM , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I enjoy attending formal events as much as the next girl because, for a few hours, I get to feel (if not look?) pretty. There's something about being dolled up — whether in a long gown or cocktail dress, fully made up, with heels and shiny jewelry — that makes any woman feel utterly feminine.

I guess the same is true for the glamorous women who get to attend Hollywood's Red Carpet events. And I have to say that I'm a sucker for award shows. Aside from finding out who or what will win so-and-so award, I really enjoy taking at look at what the stars will be wearing.

Yesterday was Golden Globes Day, and the event was no exception. I loved what most of the ladies wore, and was pleased to find out that many of them kept it classy.

I always prefer classic looks more than trendy looks (and this doesn't really make sense since I'm supposed to be some advertising hipster, which I'm not). If I were to have some "statement piece", however, I would focus on just one element of what I'd be wearing, and not contrasting things — or cuts, for that matter.


For me, this would be an example of something I wouldn't wear. While I liked the rich, chocolate-brown-bordering-on-plum shade of Lena Durham's gown, it didn't really flatter her figure. Plus, I'm not too sure about the ribbon-esque bodice of her gown.

However, a number of gowns really stood out for me.

There were high slits...

Lea Michele

Heidi Klum

Shades of white was/were the color of the night for some...

Amanda Seyfried

Anne Hathaway

Michelle Dockery

Some chose to have one element in their gowns stand out...

Emily Blunt

Kate Hudson

While some really kept it classy...

Taylor Swift

Jessica Alba

Julianne Moore

Now, to find time to actually watch the Golden Globes, since I missed it due to work.

Congratulations to all the winners! Looking forward to this year's Academy Awards as well.

  1. The colour of Jessica Alba's gown is amazing! Not really feeling her clutch, though.

    I agree with you: Anne Hathaway's ensemble is gorgeous. I also like Amanda Seyfried's. Both of them were able to pull off the relaxed but elegant look very well.

    I also agree with you on Lena Dunham. It seems as though she appears too short for her gown. A flowier number would have done her much better. Personally, I'm not too fond of the brown; for me, turquoise, mint or teal is better for her complexion.

  2. Hey, Marz! I totally agree with you. Not digging Jessica Alba's clutch too much, but everything else (aside from Lena Durham's gown) looks so pretty. :D
