Florida Georgia Line

2015 Oscars — Best Dressed

Lots of sparkle, shimmer, and shine for my Best Dressed list! There are a few more minimalistic looks that caught my eye for the 2015 Oscars, but I was vastly impressed by this year’s red carpet. It was very hard to narrow my list down! So here goes, ENJOY!!

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals   Jennifer Lopez

There is no angle for which this stunning blush-hued, beaded Elie Saab gown does not look great. As always, Elie Saab’s gowns are works of art. This dress has it all, the perfect balance of elegance and sexiness, especially with that plunging neckline!

bXPalpaEuiWl

The star accessorized with a crème Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and 20 carats, $2.5 million worth of Neil Lane diamond and platinum jewelry.

Stylist Lorenzo Martin was on deck for hair, this chic ponytail, with makeup by Mary Phillips, both of whom used L’Oreal products. Phillips provided some great pops of pink, both on the eyes and the lips!

1424655878_jennifer-lopez-560_640

Giuliana Rancic

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Still amazed by how gorgeous Giuliana looks in this daring red Mireille Dagher dress. I’m head over heels about all the intricate details of this gown, the lace, the floral appliques; they are all just great! For the battle of the red looks, Giuliana takes it home for me! Paired with her look are understated diamond pieces from Forevermark jewelry.

87th+Annual+Academy+Awards+Arrivals+jjAuHB3K923l

And for her overall styling, kudos to her stylist, Monica Rose, hair by Melissa Brown (lovely retro waves), and makeup by Daniel Deleno, the perfectly coordinating bold red lip!

Anna Faris     87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Anna is dazzling in this metallic silver, strapless Zuhair Murad gown. She is shimmering all over thanks to all of the beaded embellishments. And coordinating perfectly with her look, a slate Judith Leiber clutch and diamond Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Jamie Chung

Jamie has found a true designer friend in Yanina Couture. She has continued to look fabulous every time she dons one of the brand’s look. And this nude gown with a navy tulle overlay, splashed with sequin starburst detailing, is top notch. She has paired with her look a beautiful pair of Leticia Linton earrings.

ZqcBytf0ECbl

Her styling team deserves some credit here as well, overall styling by Sammy and Judy; gorgeous wavy locks by Kira Nasrat; fresh, natural beauty look from Daniel Marrone, nails by Jay De La Cruz, with the help of Caption Polish.

More specifics — Makeup artist Daniel Marrone gave Jamie Chung matte makeup in warm neutral tones with a classic cat eye, while hair stylist Kira Nasrat created sculpted side-swept waves.

 Jennifer Aniston

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Jen has ditched her go-to black looks for red carpets and I could not be more ecstatic. She looks phenomenal in this beaded nude, strapless gown from Atelier Versace. Coordinating so well with this sexy look are Stuart Weitzman “Nudist” heels, as well as a few subtle Fred Leighton diamond jewelry pieces.

lJfEVS1rsKdl

America’s sweetheart let her dress do the talking with natural makeup and thick, full lashes courtesy of Chanel celebrity makeup artist Angela Levin. “We wanted a beige lip look, to really complement her dress, so I applied Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Louise ($36), then topped the lip color with Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Sensuel ($34) and Chanel Glossimer in Unity ($30),” said Levin.

To complement Aniston’s Atelier Versace dress, Living Proof hair pro Chris McMillan went for “very natural, sexy, and glamorous hair. The inspiration was to be comfortable so that she could enjoy her time.” After washing her hair with Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner, McMillan used the brand’s Blowout at the roots. He then blew her hair out with a slight side part before finishing with a bit of Satin Hair Serum to the ends to combat frizz.

Katie Cassidy

ALFOMBRA ROJA DE LOS PREMIOS OSCAR 2015

How radiant does Katie look in this breathtaking metallic silver Julien MacDonald gown, complete with a flowing train? I can answer, she is brimming with radiance and this is an A+ look if I’ve ever seen one! Her accessories for the evening, all in matching silver hues, Stuart Weitzman heels, a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch,  Jacob & Co diamond ring, and Harry Kotler diamond earrings.

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Anna Kendrick

Anna looks marvelous in this custom peach-hued Thakoon gown. The color is right. The fit is spot on. And the diamond choker, haltered neckline gives this look that extra special touch, making it a knockout! Paired with her look are Norman Silverman diamond jewelry.

1424646310_anna-kendrick-560_640

Makeup artist Vanessa Scali used Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Pink for that flushed glow, then used Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Smolder from the lashline to crease and underneath the eye, with Beautiful Color Precision Glide Eyeliner in Black Violet on the top lashline, waterline, and outer corner of the lower lashes.

anna-kendrick-3-290

As for that updo, stylist Craig Gangi sprayed Bumble and bumble’s soon-to-launch Surf Infusion (watch this space for more info on that big launch) onto wet hair, then diffused it with a blowdryer. After hair was dry, he used a 1/2-inch curling iron to “eliminate frizz and polish the wave.” He then sectioned the hair and pulled it back into a French twist, pinning it into place and spraying with Does It All Styling Spray for a light hold — as Kendrick had to change her hairstyle for that opening musical number, he didn’t want to use anything too sticky or strong for the red carpet.

tB7Hcz7PDTzl

Scarlett Johansson

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Green goddess! The actress and new mom looked glam in a plunging Atelier Versace gown with an extravagant collar embroidered with Swarovski crystals. I think this is a great choice of color for not only Scarlett, but also the red carpet. It is a standout look for sure!

Her other sparkling pieces to accentuate the look are emerald jewelry pieces from Piaget.

Gwyneth Paltrow

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

This gown seemed to cause quite a bit of fashionable discussion, but I’m infatuated with it. I think it is a hit all the way! I can’t take my eyes off this custom-made, soft pink, silk-crepe Ralph & Russo gown featuring a shoulder rosette of delicate oversized petals in gazar and organza.

FQP3_dcm-Zkl

Gwyneth accessorized with Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie rubellite jewelry pieces.

Makeup artist Leslie Lopez wanted to create a smoky eye and nude lip to pair with the statement-making dress. “I used light foundation, only where needed, so that her beautiful skin would still show through. I followed with a little bit of Max Factor Bronzing Powder ($9) towards the temples and cheek bones, and used a pretty pink-hued blush on the apples of the cheeks to give her a healthy glow.” Lopez finished the look with Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Carolina Coast ($9), the “perfect shade to achieve the nude lip look we were going for,” she said.

IhCyIDnglJYl

Reese Witherspoon

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Reese always know how to elegantly embody the definition of simplistic minimalism. She knows she doesn’t need the bells & whistles to stand out on the red carpet. And in this black and white Tom Ford fitted gown, she is the epitome of Red Carpet glam. BTW, love the Bardot style neckline, exquisite!

Huge props to her beauty team, styling by Leslie Fremar; hair, beautiful waves, by Adir Abergel; makeup courtesy of Molly R. Stern, fresh faced glow, slight smoky eye, lovely nude lip.

10999894_730403140412658_4545936586599410679_n

And finally, to top off Reese’s killer look, Tiffany & Co. diamond jewelry pieces.

1908330_730930547026584_9120745552520056896_n

Glam stat: Witherspoon added more than $3 million worth of Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Collection diamonds.

Additional beauty specifics — Celebrity makeup artist Molly R. Stern created a radiant, sexy, effortless look on Reese Witherspoon using Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Highlighter & Shader Duet in Intensity One ($77), to define and sculpt Witherspoon’s cheekbones, as well as Laura Mercier’s Faux Lash Mascara ($25) in Black and Brown for “a softer intensity.” To give her body an all-over glow, Stern used St. Tropez’s One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion ($18). For her bright nude lip, Stern used Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Nude Rose as a base and then layered the beauty brand’s Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Peche for a “hint of light brightness.”

Georgina Chapman

Georgina+Chapman+Arrivals+87th+Annual+Academy+FVT-_OAHx8Nl

My guess, Georgina is rockin’ her own line her, Marchesa. But regardless, she looks amazing in this full-on floral embellished number. It is simply divine!

HT_georgina_chapman_1_jt_150221_16x9_992

Brooke looked heavenly in this rose pink silk tulle organza Leanne Marshall strapless gown. Huge fan of Leanne’s work, so I’m always happy to see her unique creations on the red carpet or runway!

Her accessories, gorgeous pieces by XIV Karats. And major credit here to Brooke’s glam team — hair & makeup courtesy of Chroma Studio.

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Nancy O’Dell

What else could you ask for in a red carpet look? Black is always a winning color choice. The fit here is great. There is drama with the structured shoulder detailing and flowing train. Nancy’s black one-shoulder Gauri and Nainika gown has this and more! Paired perfectly with her look, black Aquazzura heels & statement-making diamond jewelry pieces from XIV Karats.

Blanca Blanco

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

I wasn’t so sure about this look right at first, but to me, it’s wearable art. I love it! There is something so unique about it. It’s bold, daring, and full of drama, which works perfectly for the red carpet. The mix of red hues, black, navy blue, and slight sparkling embellishments, combine together magically to escalate this look.

Rita Ora

MjuVLcvIEitl

Rita looks glamorous and elegant in this fitted black, strapless Marchesa gown, with some lovely touches of floral embellishments and a flowing train. This is A+ red carpet style in my book! Statement making jewelry was provided by Lorraine Schwartz. And Kathy Jeung did an amazing job with Rita’s makeup, natural, clean look!

Additional specifics — Edie Sedgewick vibes with her sculpted platinum pixie, exaggerated lashes, and a perfect nude lip, courtesy of makeup artist Kathy Jeung, who used Rimmel products.

Channing & Jenna Dewan Tatum

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

One of my fave dynamic red carpet duos, such a handsome pair! Channing is looking ever so dapper in his classic black Dolce&Gabbana tux. He’s even thrown in some fun accessories, black Louis Leeman shoes, and Neil Lane studs and cufflinks.

10991131_679413975502919_2560531793701329114_n

Jenna is just as fabulous, looking ethereal, wearing a Zuhair Murad Couture white dress. I’m all about this look, the super sexy plunging neckline, the belt, the delicate beaded embellishment, it is just all superb! Jenna is too accessorizing quite well, diamond Lorraine Schwartz jewels and metallic silver Lee Savage clutch.

jenna-dewan-290

Jenna’s glam squad team did a wonderful job here, Derek Peter Williams for this chic ponytail; Patrick Ta for makeup, love this gorgeous tangerine lip; and Brad Goreski for styling.

10982130_679413978836252_6197528256372712765_n

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Miles Teller & Keleigh Sperry

Another dynamic pair, looking great in black & white! Not sure about the designer details on Miles’ classic black tuxe, but he looks very handsome! But WOW! Where has Keleigh been hiding on the red carpets with Miles. I want to see more! She looks angelic and beautiful in this white Lorena Sarbu gown with silver embellished trim at the bodice.

Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Adam & Behati are Armani X 2. Adam looks quite nice in his traditional black Armani tuxe. While Behati went with a bit more drama in this Armani Prive fitted embellished gown. I knew right away it was Armani, definitely memorable and eye-catching! She’s also done a fantastic job pairing with her look, daring jewelry pieces by De Grisogono.

464154168-600x900

Behati’s overall look is courtesy of Bryce Scarlett for hair, a chic updo and Monika Blunder for makeup, love the bold red lip. Makeup artist Monika Blunder opted for a matte red lip and feather, long lashes—the perfect complement to Prinsloo’s beaded Armani Privé gown.

Luciana & Robert Duvall

87th Academy Awards, Oscars, Arrivals, Los Angeles, America - 22 Feb 2015

Not all about Robert’s suit, it’s okay. But with another gorgeous Elie Saab number on the red carpet, there is no way to ignore it. Yes, very similar to J. Lo’s, but to me, this tangerine gown is special in its own right. The color is a huge difference, and looks great here on Luciana. This is Elie Saab’s style though, so it takes a close eye to note the differences and you can see that here with the sparkly embellishments — the patterns are different in both looks! All in all, both ladies looked heavenly in Elie Saab!

f8429c9bbb36272fc994b8c2489f5b1dd7b1ee02

Luciana accessorized with a bit more sparkle, but this time in the way of magnificent Harry Winston diamonds.

10995918_10152591470541770_837285977863332272_n

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Ryan Seacrest

So from what I am gathering, Ryan has a menswear line with Macy’s, Seacrest Style. And that is what he is donning for the Oscars. I would tell all the men I know to check this line out as I imagine you could look just as stylish, but likely the price wouldn’t be such a bad deal!

Michael Keaton

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

And finally, Michael, looking quite handsome in his well fitted, classic black tuxe, courtesy of Ralph Lauren. His black dress shoes are too by Ralph Lauren.

2015 Golden Globes — Best Dressed

Ahhhhh! The much anticipated 2015 Golden Globes aired last night on NBC, filmed at the extravagant Beverly Hilton Hotel. And needless to say, the show was great. But also, and no surprise here, the red carpet was PHENOMENAL!! It seemed quite a few trends were very ever-present on the red carpet, one such being bold, bright red gowns. Red gowns also ruled my own Best Dressed list, as well as almost every Versace gown too!

There were so many gowns that I adored. It was hard to narrow down, so actually I didn’t! Just kidding! My list isn’t terribly long considering the vast amount of dresses donned by these major celebrities, but I did have to add a few extra to my list because there were just so many amazing looks to choose from. So here we go —

011115-GG-greer-grammer-428

GREER GRAMMER

Greer, aka Miss Golden Globes 2015, looked like a beautiful princess in this blush Lorena Sarbu gown with gold floral embellishments. She was definitely captivating on both the red carpet and the awards stage.

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Her look was completed with some statement-making Neil Lane jewelry, including her bold dangling earrings, and then a shimmery gold Jimmy Choo clutch. Her stunning beauty look, created by Kip Zachary, encompassed a light blush on the cheek & pretty rose lip, compliments of L’Oreal Paris. All in all, styled by Kelly Johnson.

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

KATE HUDSON

Kate Hudson

There was no denying how gorgeous Kate looked in this severely sexy white Versace gown. Everything about this dress was perfection — the slight train, the amazing fit, & the intricate detailed cutouts at the sides.

kate-hudson-shows-tons-of-skin-at-golden-globes-2015-02

Makeup artist Christian McCulloch calls Hudson the “ultimate golden California goddess” and opted for varying shades of tan, bronze, and gold from Dolce & Gabbana’s makeup line to complement her stunning white Atelier Versace gown.

She added some sparkle to her look with some beautiful diamond pieces from Forevermark.

Colorist Cassondra Keeding added babylights to Hudson’s blond strands to further emphasize the sun-goddess effect, while ghd Brand Ambassador, David Babaii, created a modern day chignon using the ghd Eclipse Flat Iron.

kate-hudson-shows-tons-of-skin-at-golden-globes-2015-03

And finally, showcasing how captivating this look is from every angle, the backside is superbly stunning. The details at the side are embellished with Swarovski crystals. Also, to coordinate well with her white & silver look is a white Jimmy Choo clutch.

kate-hudson-golden-globes-instagram

Heidi Klum  HEIDI KLUM

Va va voom! Heidi is smokin’ in this one-shoulder red Versace gown. Perfectly coordinating are her custom red Jimmy Choo “Jane” sandal heels.

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsLorraine Schwartz always knows how to add that right amount of sparkle, and does so well to complete Heidi’s A+ look with diamond earrings and rings.

Heidi Klum arrives at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills

Heidi’s styling team has done a fantastic job here — Linda Hay for makeup, creating a daring beauty look with a bold red lip; Christian Wood for hair, with this effortlessly elegant curly side-swept do; Tom Bachik for these lovely clear nails; & of course, this all couldn’t have been accomplished without Heidi’s talented stylist, Maryam Malakpour.

heidi-klum-@heidiklumANNA KENDRICK

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Still channeling her Cinderella character from Anna’s recent starring role with Into the Woods, she is looking very fairy tale-esque in this nude Monque Lhuillier gown with ruby beaded embellishments.

3305e349a04d4fccd513ded9ef7c27a7752f9000She was very smart to add these matching ruby red Fred Leighton earrings to top off her immaculate look.

Kendrick showed up on the red carpet looking like the movie star she is — a clean, elegant updo and highlighted, beautiful skin are all she needed to show off her true, effortless beauty. Makeup artist Vanessa Scali dusted Dolce & Gabbana’s Illuminator in Eva on the cheekbones, browbones, and down the nose to give the actress her ethereal glow.

anna-kendrick-600x450With regard to her elegant updo, the creator was Craig Gangi. And here are all of the fun details! “Anna’s dress was whimsical and fairytale-esque,” Gangi tells PEOPLE. “So to offset the dress, we decided to create a sleek, modern and sophisticated tight chignon for an elegant ballerina chic style.” To create the look, Gangi began applying his favorite “go-to product” — Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil — to the star’s damp hair. “It magically helped me transform Anna’s naturally curly hair into a silky smooth blowout,” he says. Once he finished blowing out Kendrick’s strands (using the Bumble and bumble Round Brush), Gangi used a flat iron to straighten it and sprayed each section with Bumble and bumble Does It All Styling Spray to “lock locks into a perfectly straight but fresh and bouncy look.”

anna-kendrick-600x800After spraying down her hair, Gangi parted it down the middle and brushed it into a tight, low pony before curling it using a 1-1/2 inch curling iron. As soon as her hair cooled, he brushed out curl and braided a small section and twisted it into a bun and pinned it in place. To complete the look, Gangi says he “wrapped the braid around the bun and pinned with a few strategically placed bobby pins to secure.”

The finishing touch? A good hairspray of course. “I used Bumble and bumble Spray de Mode Hairspray to lock style in place.”

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Amy Adams

AMY ADAMS

Amy was a vision in this perfectly draped, one-shoulder, periwinkle Versace gown. And yes, I do believe every person who donned Versace made by list so stay tuned to keep seeing Versace on it! Versace was definitely the awarding winning designer brand for Fashion Nexus! She wonderfully completed her look with matching Jimmy Choo heels & a few diamond Tiffany & Co. pieces.

00638b97b98fee93ddc97a418bcbba0ebd5698ea

As part of her beauty look, Adams donned a trend of the night, retro waves. She channeled Jessica Rabbit (only fitting with red locks like hers), with loose, romantic waves swept to the side for added impact. Hairstylist Laini Reeves achieved the look with Oribe’s Volumista applied damp hair from roots to ends. After blowing hair dry, she used a two-inch curling iron and rollers to pin-curl hair up in four sections. She sprayed the style with Oribe’s Shine Light Reflecting Spray and let it sit for 20 minutes before removing pins and rollers and brushing hair out with a Mason Pearson brush to create the softness.

ANNA FARIS

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsAnna just finished up hosting the Peoples Choice Awards, looking even more stunning with each new look she donned. And I’m happy to report she didn’t lose any fashionable steam here. I loved how breathtaking she looked in this nude embellished Reem Acra gown. And her accessories were spot on as well, coordinating nude Jimmy Choo heels and diamond earrings & a ring from Lorraine Schwartz.

JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS 

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Julia went for simplistic minimalism with this white, one-shoulder Narcisco Rodriguez. And I love it! The dress was amazing, just the right amount of sparkle on the bodice. It’s not always about the bells & whistles! She also kept it classy with her accessories, a few diamond pieces from Irene Neuwirth jewelry.

I love this matching ivory & silver Edie Parker clutch she has used to accessorize her look. And below, you can take a look at some of the makeup Julia used to achieve her beauty look — slight brown smoky eye & nude lip, inclusive of some Chanel make-up.

REESE WITHERSPOON

I am loving all of these solid silver gowns, very disco ball-esque. And this is certainly inclusive of Reese’s strapless, fitted Calvin Klein custom dress. Reese has said this stunner took over 80 hours to make, but every hour was clearly worth it; this dress is simply amazing! And to add just a little more silvery shine, she accessorized with Tiffany & Co. jewelry, specifically a stunning diamond bangle, totaling about $1.5 million with all she was wearing!

reese-witherspoon-@reesewitherspoonReese’s beauty look was breathtaking. Her rosy flushed cheeks were courtesy of Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Abundance, a pretty pink pout, thanks to Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Merlot, and champagne and bronzy shimmer eyeshadows (also by Laura Mercier) were all showstopping. And finally, her tousled sideswept waves were courtesy of John Frieda.

KATE BECKINSALE

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Kate always looks radiant. And she is of course shining like a bright star in this mixed media metallic & taupe Elie Saab greige gown. It has such a chic feel about it from the glittering bodice to the muted draped skirt. She is also coordinating perfectly with her accessories — silver Jimmy Choo heels, Rauwolf clutch, and diamond Lorraine Schwartz jewelry (bangles & dangling earrings).

ALLISON WILLIAMS

Allison Williams

Allison was another lovely lady in fiery red. Her choice, an ombre beaded Armani Prive strapless gown with fitted bustier. She completed her look with Cartier diamonds, specifically a stunning diamond bracelet.

imageRetroglam for beauty looks was a very popular trend on the Golden Globes red carpet, mainly the hair. So here, makeup pro Gianpaolo Ceciliato wanted to “add a rock-’n’-roll edge to Allison’s Old Hollywood hairstyle and glamorous Armani Privé gown” with a bold smoky eye. He used St. Tropez’s One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion to give her a luminous, bronzy glow, and applied Giorgio Armani’s Eye Tints ($38) in #1 and #7  to create shimmery smoky eye. He rimmed the entire eye with a black pencil, and then layered the lid in black and gunmetal using Armani’s new liquid eye tints. “Then, I added a light beige to the inner corner and on the browbone to make the eye pop.”

KATIE CASSIDY

Katie is another lovely lady going with a super sexy look and it works. She perfectly struck the delicate balance of pulling off just the right amount of sexiness with this black Mikael D. dress. The details are superb, love the thigh high slit, starburst side cutouts, and silver touches. Black & silver continued on with her accessory choices — a black Rodo clutch and diamond Harry Kotlar jewelry.

TAYLOR SCHILLING

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Taylor opted for another crimson red hue on the red carpet, her choice, a criss-cross strapped halter gown by Ralph Lauren. She looked very elegant. Matching perfectly with her gown were a crimson red Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and ruby Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

Taylor Schilling’s Grace Kelly-inspired beauty look featured lips that perfectly matched her Ralph Lauren gown. Makeup artist Tina Turnbrow used Nars Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil for lasting color. Her hair was also styled elegantly and very chic. Her hairstylist Ryan Trygstad, for Matrix, created a stylish chignon bun. He created the classic red carpet look with help from plenty of volumizing and anti-humidity products to ensure the twisted chignon would hold up all night.

LESLIE MANN

NBC's "72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards" - Arrivals

Yellow is a hard color, in my opinion, to pull off. Leslie made it work though with this fitted, strapless Kaufmanfranco number. It shines & shimmers all over and is the perfect shade for her. She paired it with a dark green Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and Kimberly McDonald jade earrings and gold bangles.

Her beauty look was radiant! Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Marigold paired perfectly with lit-from-within peachy glowing cheeks.

ELLIE KEMPER

Ellie KemperSupposedly this dress weighs 500 lbs! I’m not sure how she could wear this fully embellished silver Naeem Khan so well then, but needless to say, she does! It’s eye-catching and not in a bad way. I also love these gorgeous diamond jewelry pieces from Neil Lane — bracelets galore!

DAKOTA JOHNSON

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Another disco ball-esque dress for me and yes, I love them all! Dakota looks amazing with her own take on this embellished type of dress, here a couture Chanel, strapless and with a high slit. It’s as if it was earmarked just for her! She is also donning some fine Chanel jewelry, namely a beautiful diamond ring. Silver is definitely the name of the game for her and it coordinates well, including her silver Jimmy Choo heels and Rauwolf clutch.

04efdc55e40249e5a4c9eae678f987980cdca70fDakota’s soft, luscious waves were simply beautiful! Hairstylist Mark Townsend gave her a “sexy and bendy” look, using  Dove’s Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray to add major volume at the roots, and R+Co’s Death Valley Dry Shampoo to get piecey texture.

To offset Johnson’s silver sequined Chanel gown, makeup artist Patti Dubroff decided to keep her face fresh, subtle, and polished. “We did flushed cheeks, bitten lips, and a subtle, defined eye in warm taupes and deep gray in the corner,” Dubroff says.  For a rosy glow, she applied Chanel’s Le Blush Crème de Chanel Cream Blush in Revelation on the apples of her cheeks.

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals  KAT KRAMER

It’s almost as if you are in a bold crimson red, you’ve made my best dressed list! I’m not sure who Kat is wearing, but she looks gorgeous! I’m really enjoying this asymmetrical beaded gown. The fit is immaculate and Kat is exuding confidence, as well as looking great! Her accessories too are just as amazing, a coordinating red clutch and statement-making diamond jewelry.

JANE FONDA

More red. More Versace. Gotta love it! Jane is pulling almost any look off these days. And she’s been wearing a lot of red, but each time, it still catches my attention in a new & fascinating way. This fitted red Versace gown, with sheer side pinned detailing is no different. She has paired with her look, silver Jimmy Choo “Aza” metallic pumps and a crimson red Rauwolf clutch.

Frances O’Connor

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

I will forever support the Project Runway franchise when I can. But here, there is no question former PR winner Leanne Marshall deserves a best dressed nod. This black strapless gown, with a sweetheart neckline and lace bodice, is divine. Frances made the right call here and was definitely a stand-out on the red carpet. She was also rockin’ some gorgeous diamond jewelry from Forevermark!

BEST DRESSED DUOS

I had to be a little nit-picky with making my best dressed list or it would really run on. So a few gorgeous ladies didn’t make the cut, but I couldn’t ignore how great they looked when standing next to their handsome and well-dressed men. So here are a few best dressed duos that really caught my attention. And together, their looks were amazing!

Jennifer Aniston & Justin Thoreaux

Justin Theroux, Jennifer AnistonJen is no stranger to wearing black on the red carpet, but you can never deny how gorgeous she looks. And without a doubt, next to her man, they make for a dynamic duo for sure! Jen is wearing a black YSL fitted dress, with a beaded bodice, and accessorizing with Neil Lane jewelry.

You can read more about Jen’s chic hair below, but her natural beauty look deserves some recognition as well. Aniston’s cheeks glowed with a combination of Chanel Le Blush Crème de Chanel in Destiny, then Chanel Le Blush Crème de Chanel in Intonation on apples of cheeks, finished with a dusting of bronzer Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour in N°70. Her nude lips were courtesy of Chanel Precision Lip Definer in Mordoré-Nude and two coats of Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Deauville.

Jennifer is also rockin’ a very chic, classic updo in a very ladylike bun. “I kind of snuck it on her,” says Aniston’s hairstylist Chris McMillan. A few days ago, he showed her a picture of Kate Moss from Mario Testino’s book. “She was like, ‘Maybe…’ And if we do it up, we normally do a ponytail,” says McMillan. “So we were like let’s do makeup first and we’ll do a ponytail. She liked the shape of the ponytail, so while she was in the chair I wrapped the ponytail into a bun.” Aniston asked McMillan if it was weird that she liked it up. “I haven’t washed my hair in two days, but I love the texture,” McMillan says she said. “It was a 15 minute hairdo! We used Texture Spray by Living Proof and she was most happy when she realized, ‘I don’t have to deal with my hair all night!’”

CHANNING & JENNA DEWAN TATUM

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

This is another gorgeous pair, Channing as handsome as ever in a traditional black tuxe by Dolce & Gabbana. Jenna is shining bright in this strapless draped sunshine yellow Carolina Herrera dress. She is accessorizing with a burgundy Jimmy Choo clutch and diamond Lorraine Schwartz jewelry ($5 million worth)!!

main.original.0x971cJenna styled her hair in some very elegant waves. Her hairstylist, Bridget Bager for Matrix, wanted to create texture and movement. “The gown is so beautiful and grand, so we decided to soften her hair to offset the seriousness of the dress,” Bager says. The key is use a medium barrel curling iron, wrapping each section loosely and letting the ends drop.

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend 

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Such a perfect pair, John in a classic black tuxe, and Chrissy in a long-sleeved, lacy embellished, blush pink Zuhair Murad sheath gown from the S/S 15 collection. Chrissy is accessorizing with a metallic Tyler Alexandra clutch, a Harry Kotlar radiant cut diamond ring and cushion cut pink and white diamond earrings (all in all, $1 million). as well as a diamond Suzanne Kalan ring.

Chrissy’s hairstylist Giannandrea used Macadamia Professional’s Whipped Detailing Cream to create a beachy texture throughout her strands. All in all, creating this super chic high ponytail.

DIANE KRUGER & JOSHUA JACKSON
