The Golden Globes always marks the end of Christmas, a new year and, of course, the start of awards season. And, like any celebrity/fashion/beauty obsessive we’re suffering from a lack of sleep this Monday morning thanks to staying awake most of the night surfing Instagram.
In amongst the fancy golden gowns – there was obviously some unsaid agreement this year that everyone was to dress like an actual Golden Globe - there was an undeniable feel of old glamour – predictable yes, for a red carpet, but pretty damn lovely anyway.
Eva Green’s pale skin received the Hollywood red lip treatment courtesy of make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury who used her own Matte Revolution Lipstick in 1975 Red from her Norman Parkinson collection, and her blue eyes were accentuated with Eyes To Mesmerise.
Gone are the hair bows, the huge lashes and face glitter; Lady Gaga stunned in the beauty stakes with her off the shoulder number and short bouncy waves with full quiff. What. A. Look! (Sidenote: did you SEE Leonardo DiCaprio’s face?!).
Maggie Gyllenhaal’s soft chocolate waves harked-back to a more glamorous era and if – like us – you’re taken with that pink lip; it’s NARS Audacious Lipstick in Michiyo. You’re welcome.
Jennifer Lopez did was she does best – Went. All. Out. Her dark red lips and golden lids came courtesy of make-up artist Mary Phillips and L’Oréal Paris, and her simple wavy blowout was the work of hair stylist Lorenzo Martin (who also styled JLO’s hair for our December 2015 cover – see the look here). It was a busy night for Jennifer who took her look straight from the Golden Globes to the after party for her new series Shades of Blue – by way of a wardrobe change. Naturally.
We spied the classic bob; albeit faux. Our February cover star Amber Heard was minus hottie Johnny Depp but she wasn’t lacking in the glamour stakes. Her long hair was pinned up into a loose Marcel wave off a side parting. Red carpet pro Cat Blanchett, adopted the same approach with a sleek take on a bob.
Silver screen glamour? Anyone would think that they were in Hollywood or something.
