Golden Globes red carpet looks: Skin is out! | DC Goodwill Fashionista

Awards-show season is here, and like many, I mostly enjoy the fashion. Where else can you see such a variety of gowns that are either fresh from the runway, or custom designed? It’s a dress-lover’s dream.

This year I noticed that many of the ladies on the best-dressed lists had one thing in common: a lack of bare skin. Their dresses were modest, covering their shoulders or featuring high necklines. Modest, elegant dresses always make me think of “old” Hollywood. Here are a few worth oohing and aahing over.

The gentleman I watched the Golden Globes with remarked about Julianna Marguelies’ Andrew Gn gown, “She looks like an old vase. I mean, in a good way.” They also noted, “she is aging backwards.” Her dress was my favorite of the night: just a pinch of d├ęcolletage, a flattering cap sleeve, and a glamorous full skirt.

Julia Roberts, also potentially aging backwards, wore a somewhat dated Dolce and Gabbana (Oxfords under dresses is so 2008), but it flattered the crap out of her. So it doesn’t matter. She looked like a million bucks.

Zooey Deschanel didn’t wow me with her two-piece Oscar de la Renta ensemble, but she at least looked comfortable and glamorous. I still don’t think crop tops belong on the red carpet, but she was covered up and still a bit chic.

Allison Williams was sassy in Alexander McQueen. Her print was modern, and the bodice cutouts are interesting without being too revealing. Plus, she looks fabulous in that classic sheath style. She proves that you can be sexy without showing too much!

All I have to say about Mila Kunis is this: Favorite. Gown. Of the night. What a stunner!

Emma Watson wore a Christian Dior with an open back. But from the front, her gown looked comfortable and so chic. I’m not sure why she was wearing leggings underneath (probably to make up or that daring front slit), but…whatever works for you, girl.

Breakout star Lupita Nyong’o looked radiant in a Ralph Lauren gown that was reminiscent of Gwenyth Paltrow’s Tom Ford two-piece ensemble at the 2012 Oscars. She didn’t even need jewelry! While the red dress was dazzling, it still allowed us to focus on Nyong’o’s beautiful smile.

Which Golden Globes gown did you like best? Do you prefer when stars show a little skin, or cover up?
