Ava Grace's Closet: My take on the Globes

My take on the Globes

I'm just like the next girl + watch the Golden Globes more for the fashion and celebrity ogling than to find out which films + tv shows actually win an award. Although I was thrilled to see Breaking Bad take 2. Love that show. 

Now onto the fashion.
I chose my favourites mostly based on what I might actually choose to wear if I had access to an unlimited budget, stylists and such.





If I had to choose my absolute favourite dress of the night, it would definitely be a toss up between Julianna Margulies black printed Andrew Gn number above {loved her hair, makeup, jewels...just perfection all around} + Maria Menounos' bright pink Max Azria Atelier body conscious number. Seriously in LOVE. 

I so enjoyed seeing all of the pregnant mamas and how gorgeous they all looked starting {and ending} with Olivia Wilde.
Are you kidding me?
She may look better than before was pregnant.
Just gorgeous. 
I looked like this at 3 months. Maybe for like a minute.



And lastly, my not so favourites.
I struggle to understand how one looks at themselves in some of these get-ups and thinks this is the best that they could do for what for their industry, is one of the biggest nights of the year.

Julia, why? Why are you wearing what appears to be a Gap shirt under your dress?
Heidi? I have no words. But, this is proof, that even the perfect have their off days. 
Oh Jennifer, I love you so. And usually, all of your fashion choices. But this? Not so much.
And lastly, Zoe, far too much going on with this one. It confuses me and I just don't know where to look.

I cannot wait for the Oscars.

See why I think blogging over 40 is the new black here today!

  4. Lupita can do no wrong in my eyes, she's just perfection. I was really disappointed in JLaw's dress.

  5. I wasn't super impressed over all with the dresses this year. Lupita and Julianna were my faves. Heidi Klum was the worst. Her boobs looked saggy. Which is sad because she has a rockin' body.

  6. I loved Lupita's dress but for me Emma Watson was totally inspired! Was Angie there last night?? I know her Dad won a Globe but I don't think her and Brad were there this year...

    1. OMG! You are right! Well, that explains why I felt like I had seen that dress before. LOL! I've removed her and contemplated adding another I didn't enjoy but then...ah, let's focus on all the goodness that was there.
      Loved Emma Watson's look but not sure I would wear that to the Globes.

  7. My favorite was Cate Blachett!! Would love to be able to wear (courageously for me) a dress like this just once! It was gorgeous...I do not understand Julia Roberts at all...I was stunned at what a poor choice it was.
