To the trends!
TREND: Pretty in Pink
The Globes were aflush with blush! And rose. And fuchsia. Even sequins dipped in the romantic hue. Winners like Emma Stone and Claire Foy worked the trend, as did Angela Basset, Carrie Underwood and Felicity Jones. Of note: Pink also popped up quite a bit at the Emmy’s last fall. Are we seeing a trend or a full-fledged, magenta movement? Either way, we’re in.
EMULATE WITH EYEWEAR: Think pink with these tea cup suns complete with gold metal brows.
TREND: Black & White
Riddle me this: What’s black and white and fierce all over? Answer: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Janelle Monae and Heidi Klum—to name a few. Frocks with blocks of these contrasting colors popped at this year’s ceremony. Even Evan Rachel Wood channeled the trend (while eschewing the dress) with a sleek suit that subtly honored Marlene Dietrich and David Bowie.
EMULATE WITH EYEWEAR: There’s no gray area with these ultra-chic B&W frames with metallic accents.
TREND: Hello Yellow
Citron. Lemon. Canary. Gold. Any way you slice it, yellow had a not-so-mellow moment last night thanks to leading ladies like Viola Davis, Natalie Portman, Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington. Admittedly not the easiest color to pull off. But when done right, this sunny hue can cast an eye-catching look that is sure to brighten anyone’s day.
EMULATE WITH EYEWEAR: Go for bold with these scene-stealing, statement-making suns.
TREND: Heavy Metal
It was metallurgic mania this year as actresses donned alloy accents, liquid-like sequins, and shiny embellishments from head to toe. Gilded gowns that caught our eye were those worn by Ruth Negga, Thandie Newton, Felicity Huffman and Regina King. We love a look that adds edge and sparkle. Armor up!
EMULATE WITH EYEWEAR: Cast yourself in these oval-shaped stunners with embellished metal accents.
TREND: Winter White
Guys at the Globes kept it clean with slim-fit, classic black suits. But a few outliers dared to alight with white jackets and tuxedos, namely Ryan Gosling, Jeremy Renner and Pharrell Williams. Labor Day, schmabor day. Clean, classic white can channel Old Hollywood debonair style and ultra-modern sensibility any day of the year.
EMULATE WITH EYEWEAR: Modern-day white knights should sport these vintage-inspired suns.
