2015 Golden Globes: Grazia’s Verdict On The 10 Best Dressed

Golden Globes: Grazia's Verdict On The 10 Best Dressed

And they’re off! Kick-starting awards season with a very glamorous swoosh of satin, tulle and tousled hair, the world’s most treasured actresses outdid themselves on the red carpet of the Golden Globe Awards. The event is usually considered a sartorial warm-up, an amuse bouche for frock-ery, but this was no dress rehearsal. There were no half-hearted efforts here, dear friends. But who really cut the mustard? GraziaDaily’s Hannah Almassi gives the biggest thumbs up to the following ten ladies…

1. Emma Stone: Lanvin jumsuit and Christian Louboutin shoes


It’s not the first time Emma has aced a red carpet thanks to the sumptuous designs of Alber Elbaz for Lanvin: he is a master of the modern after-dark wardrobe. The tuxedo pant and embellished bodice combination has the right amount of tomboy for this funny girl, without skimping on any of the old fashioned glamour we expect at such a big do. The voluminous sash adds drama while her toned down hair and makeup keep things utterly, achingly cool.

2. Dakota Johnson: Chanel Haute Couture gown and Jimmy Choo shoes


Relative newbie and 50 Shades girl Dakota could’ve wanted to make a big entrance in an even bigger gown, but there’s something (surprisingly) understated about this fully sequined number from Chanel Haute Couture. Perhaps it’s the paper-thin train or the strapless bodice. Maybe it’s her completely matchy accessories or dainty dancer’s body… whatever it is, it’s making sparkle look fresh and bright.

3. Jennifer Lopez: Zuhair Murad Haute Couture dress with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a Jimmy Choo clutch


So it’s no subtle. But when has J-Lo ever employed that tack? This announces I’M HERE. I’M IN A FILM. AND I’M EVEN HOTTER THAN I WAS 20 YEARS AGO. Say what you like about the trend-worthiness of this slashed-to-there ensemble, her bravery and dedication to a personal style must be applauded. Someone didn’t over do it on turkey sandwiches this Christmas.

4. Julianne Moore: Givenchy Haute Couture gown and Chopard jewels


Another silver sequined success. And this one has an ombré-feathered train to boot. Julianne never fails to impress fashion critics thanks to her unwavering effortlessness, so whilst this isn’t as daring as some of her past choices, it is foxy times infinity. And just look at how happy she is picking up her award.

5. Felicity Jones: Dior Haute Couture gown and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels


This dress has all of the best elements of a 1950s debutante gown minus the frou and the fuss. In this unexpected shade of teal and without a jot of detailing minus that carefully pleated high neckline, Felicity looks composed (whilst still probably living out a total teenage fantasy in this ballgown!). A Hollywood triumph yet again for Raf Simons.

6. Sienna Miller: Miu Miu dress with a Christian Louboutin clutch and Jimmy Choo heels


She’s on a winning streak – gongs or not. Sienna’s comeback style is adventurous without being at all intimidating or tricksy. In just the right shade of antique-looking blush pink and the kind of excess embellishment that feels off-kilter rather than cutesy, as well as the thoroughly deep V, Sienna turns the idea of pretty on it’s head.

7. Helen Mirren: Dolce & Gabbana dress with Chopard jewels


There’s never a shortage of va-va-voom when Mirren’s in town: this sexy scarlet frock hugs her curves like only a Dolce can do. Unlike the safe pose parade that usually occurs on these red carpets, if you can see the outtakes of Helen doing her walk (above right is just one of many) – she’s gesturing, going OTT, 'avin' a laff… there’s not a sign of self consciousness and that’s what makes her look even better.

8. Lena Dunham: Zac Posen dress and Irene Neuwirth jewels


Have we ever seen Lena in this shade of lipstick red before? If not, more please, it so suits her. As does this asymmetric, almost futuristic cut. With a flash of ankle and those pointy courts, Lena’s definitely found her way into a new, grown-up groove. Props on the ultra-straight hair, too. Poker is definitely staging a comeback.

9. Claire Danes: Valentino gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels


Thanks to Homeland one can often forget that Claire Danes wears anything other than a polyester suit (only complete with that highly functional but hideous x-body bag). Here she looks feminine and the epitome of this season’s luxe-bohemian trend. Theclip on earrings are so not Danes-y, but they do chime wiht the jewellery vibe for this evening. See how many costume clip-ons you can spot...

**10. Diane Kruger: Emilia Wickstead dress



With her perfect proportions and golden hair this is the ultimate fairytale gown for a German princess. Emilia Wickstead’s sparkly but simple SS15 sheaths have already found popularity amongst other celebs (remember Alexa in a mini version?) and we're certain they'll be more of this London couturier to come throughout the awards season. Diane oozes confidence in such an elegant, understated and timeless – and faultless - dress. Goodness, that Joshua Jackson is a lucky man.
