Golden Globe 2013 Trends

A night of glitz & glamour, several trends emerged from the Golden Globes red carpet that are certain to pop up in stylish wardrobes everywhere.


It was a sea of red. Once a daring statement, the bold hue is now accepted to the point that it is almost ho-hum. Every now & then, someone manages to knock it out of the park. Claire Danes wins the honours with an honourable mention to Amy Poehler.


The risk is large as this look often falls to extremes: tartish or surprisingly matronly. Kerry Washington managed to keep it fresh & modern.


Graphic black & white is a strong style story through summer and Julianne Moore killed it. In fact, she earns best dressed of the evening.

Cut Outs

Here, there and everywhere; maximum exposure was seen in the form of thigh high slits, peekaboo waists and plunging necklines. Kate Hudson was a lesson in how to do it right.
