Golden Globes Red Carpet 2013: Ladies and Men In Black

Did you watch the Golden Globes? I always enjoy watching celebrities walk down the red carpet. I followed it on Twitter and television. The popular "color" this year was BLACK. Were you shocked? I was. I'm a big fan of black and they looked fabulous in it, but I thought we would see lots more color. Well, there was color on the red carpet, but it seemed to fall flat. My two favorites were Katharine McPhee in va-va-voom Theory, Anne Hathaway in that gorgeous Chanel and Helen Mirren put some of the younger celebrities to shame rocking a gorgeous Badgley Mischka. And ooh la la can we just clone Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio. They are just super hot haute hot in my book. What are your thoughts? Did you have any favorites?

Did you watch Downton Abbey? I refused to miss it tonight.

That old geezer left Lady Edith standing at the altar. HaHaHa He ran! So embarrassing. I know it's horrible, but I couldn't stop laughing. 

Edith has been so mean, jealous and envious of all her sisters. She's a horrible sister! They stay so supportive of her, despite her antics. 

EVERYONE told her not to marry him! She refused to listen. Oh well, just like in real life, some lessons for some have to be learned the hard way. HaHaHa

I watched Kim, oh I watched from beginning to end. Loved Sofia Vergara, Rachel Weisz and Anne Hathaway. Amy Adams and Salma Hayek were also gorgeous. The men were so elegant as well. Some great speeches and great moments. :)

Loved your picks doll. xoxo


Tiffany Siladke said...

I, too, was a bit shocked by the amount of black I saw. I was really hoping to see some more color and some more excitement! Boooo! Oh well, maybe next year! :)

I am a tad bias because I've been madly obsessed with Leonardo Di'caprio since I was 7... but I must say, he does look sharp! Perhaps the most chic man there that night?

I really like looking at red carpet looks. Like you though, I'm disappointed there wasn't more colour. Still black is a great classic! :)

Loved the Red Caroet looks this year! My favorite dress was Julianne Hough!

Everyone looked pretty hot, there weren't that many BAD dresses... as much as there was black, there was a sea of pale nudes and fishtails too!
Clare Danes rocked for looking hot and being a new mum too!

Mademoiselle Poirot said...

I didn't watch it, but I'm definitely in favour of black for events like this. Having said that, what was Rachel Weisz thinking?!?!?!? I don't care who it's by, it looks terrible! Anyway, have a lovely week xo

Cee said...

I think Helen Mirren really store the show at the Golden Globes, dress-wise. And I think it's awesome to see someone of her age look so fabulous and so natural at the same time. I can only hope I look even half as a good when I'm her age!
PS: I've never seen Downtown Abbey... but it's on my list :)

Diva In Me said...

I missed the Golden Globes though. I think I'll watch the re-play later. I like Rosie Huntington's dress. It's a mixture of chic and elegant. A dress that I can envision myself wearing it =D

Janice Lunes said...

Great Post!

Great selection my favorite is the Chanel dress !




Ms. Dainty Doll said...

I didn't watch of course because it comes on here too early in the morning because of the time difference, but they've never appealed to me really. And I always hate the reporters who stand and mock everyone's outfit...like Joan Rivers, as if she has anything good to say ever. So I usually skip them and just look when people post, haha!! Love the last three dresses in the bottom row the most, so pretty. Hahaha...Downton, it was rather funny, but she'll be ok. She's always a moody cow really, but, it was quite harsh even for her. Hope you have a great week doll xox

Irenita said...

I always miss the Golden Globes and Academy Awards ceremonies because of European times mismatch but I always love to drool over the red carpet pictures next day!
I loved Zooey Deschanel in red and the sober Tom Ford that Julianne Moore wore.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Black is so chic and sexy on these stars (whoa Katherine!)
Ok I need to watch "Downton Abbey!"

Ah, red carpet season. Wonderful! Helen Mirren looks stunning!

Mira said...

Love the Golden Globes looks. I would really love to see Downtown Abbey but it doesn´t air over here :-(


Sam said...

I also posted my GG post today :) I loved Hayden Panettiere this time round, something new and grown up for her. Also McPhee killed it in that slinky black dress. I think we get Downtown Abbey on the BBC here, just need to research when!

Style Journey said...

I don't normally watch awards shows, but love to look at the red carpet photos the next day. I really liked Jennifer Lawrence's dress. And I would love a side of Leo, LOL! Heather

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

I feel ya. There was lots of black. Don't get me wrong black and white are my favorite colors but it seemed too safe. I wanted pizzazz. My favorite was Amy Adams.

TheTinyHeart said...

I missed the Globes so thank you for the recap! I think black is rather boring on the red carpet (other than for men) so that's a bit of a disappointment.

Oh I envy you when it comes to Downton Abbey - you still got so much to look forward to! I love the series with all my heart and can't wait to watch the next season.
Thank you for sharing the outfit photos - I missed everything, as always, so the more I can see, the better.

P.S. Added more images to the Hermes campaign, but must admit, the very first one is still my favourite.

Daniel Craig's suit seemed a little too long for him. But I love all those guys. So classy.

PAPS said...

I didn't watch it, but there's so many gowns that look amazing. The men's suits are excellent too! :) Happy Monday Kim!

The Braided Bandit said...

It was super fun watching some of the Globes last night, tons of pretty dresses. I only watched the first episode of Downton so far,but I guess I now know what happens nest haha. Their wedding dresses are GORGEOUS!

Stylish By Nature said...

Beautiful photos! So incredibly chic!

Lorena said...

I was watching the red carpet when i fell asleep :(
so, i missed it all.

The Braided Bandit said...

no worries about the Downton spoiler haha! I assumed something bad would happen to her anyway since its Edith and she is just... unfortunate usually! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog to say hi as well :)

Lindsay from Black + Blonde One said...

Personally, my favorites were Lady Mary's white/gold dress and Kate Hudson's black/gold dress!

nancy @ adore to adorn said...

loved watching the Golden Globes! It was fun to see everyone dressed up and see Tina and Amy host! =)

Outside Looking In said...

I didn't watch the GG so I missed all the dresses. UGH! These ladies look great and I'm happy to see black back too! I also have a soft spot for Bradley Cooper and James Bond so I think they look hot! I skipped over your Downton Abbey part because I haven't seen any of Season 3 yet. I'm waiting for the whole season so I can lounge in bed in my pj's and eat and be totally lazy and watch one episode after another. Should I admit that stuff? I hope you had a great weeekend!

Audrey Allure said...

I love Rosie Whiteley's look - totally missed that when I was watching.

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Hahahaha Kim, I totally agree, let's clone Bradley Cooper ... if not the whole guy, at least his eyes! No matter what the stars are wearing, it's always so much fun watching them walk the red carpet, no? I SO wish I'd started watching Downton Abbey from the beginning ... by the time I realized I was missing something, I felt I'd be too far behind. Everyone says it's great!

Thanks for stopping by and your sweet words, Kim ... I love that your blog is called A Very Sweet Blog because it is written by A Very Sweet Girl. xo ~S

two birds said...

there were so many great looks. i loved claire danes simple red dress (and hated her for having a baby one month ago and looking like that!)

jo said...

Hi Kim, I thought Tina and Amy were hysterical! I really enjoyed the show last night. Personally, I love Kate Hudson and Kerry Washington.

xo Jo


Oh to Be a Muse said...

Sounds like you really enjoyed the return of Downton Abbey!

I liked a good amount of the Golden Globes dresses last night, including some of these black ensembles.

Coco said...

I didn't watch Golden Globes but I'm enjoying all the red carpet snapshots. I usually like Eva Longoria but maybe she overdid it a little?Where did you leave scrumptious Ben Affleck's clone?I will soon start to watch the first season of Downton Abbey ...love

Samantha said...

Love your picks, and VERY surprising about all the black! Katharine McPhee looks GORGEOUS and Helen Mirren just rocks it every time!

xo, sam

Laura said...

I loved Jessica Alba, the colour of her dress was fabulous! :)

Anonymous said...

I loved all the black!!! I don't know why but I always go to black when I shop, I guess its just classic to me. Eva Longoria and Sofia Veregara looked stunning!! Thanks for sharing! xoxox

oomph. said...

miss b said...

I always enjoy the discussion about the dresses after the event and there did seem to be a lot of black this year. I thought Helen Mirren looked very elegant and the embellishment made her dress look interesting too.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I watched some of the arrivals and DVR'ed the event so I could zip through it. I actually liked the return to black and white since it's so classic and graphic. I thought Anne Hathaway looked divine and the color standouts for me were Jessica Chastain and Naomi Watts.

aaargh, I so need to get caught up on that show! sounds divine. I glazed out a bit at the awards. Especially after seeing weather man Al Roker trying to ask women about who they're wearing. Er, no.
