If you’re just trialling gowns for the big day, the latest red carpet numbers from the recent Annual Golden Globe Awards, the 73rd edition, can give you some good suggestions about what is currently inspiring the masterscissors of the big names in the fashion industry; coupled with the personal preferences and couture inclinations of the stars. It is where the creative spirits of different industries meet to make a lasting impact on the public. The Globes are the annual pre-Oscar celebrity event, which serves as a major hint towards the latest and future trends in fashion, cinema and overall, the world of glam. This year, the glitzy award ceremony, which took place on 10th January, in Beverlly Hills, California, gave us clues about favoured gowns, designs, details, beauty choices and accessorising.

When it comes to dresses, sheaths were the absolute winner, followed by columns, mini-dresses and some A-lines. Plunging necklines, backless dresses, portrait and bateau necklines, one-colour dresses were common features of the Golden Globes designs. In terms of colour palettes, there were barely any soft hues, even though recently the Pantone Color Institute announced the blending of the two shades - Rose Quartz (baby pink) and Serenity (baby blue) - as the Colour of 2016. Blues, reds, whites and nudes ruled the red carpet. Winner Kate Winslet, Viola Davis and Julianne Moore donned royal blue, whereas Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Wilde and Natalie Dormer gravitated towards deep reds, some of which nearly bordered on marsala, last year’s colour of the year. The trend for metallics seems to be laying dormant just now. Instead, nudes are a favoured option, as a figure-enhancing and flattering feature of one’s attire. Kate Hudson, Eva Green, Zoe Kazan and Georgina Chapman were among the numerous ladies who opted for the trendy nude.

Bridal was not too far from the Globes at all. First of all, a number of white dresses wre flaunted on the red carpet, by the likes of Saoirse Ronan, Eva Longoria and Lily James. Second, some actresses tapped into the fairy-godmother power of established bridal designers, such as Monique Lhuillier. And last but not least, model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley announced her engagement to actor Jason Statham at the Globes last week.

So, there is a lot to check out from the event and a lot to anticipate!
