Winter white: Golden Globes red carpet trend

09 January 2009


Whilst doing our (painstakingly thorough) research into past Golden Globe red carpet outfits to bring you an all-time best-dressed list (it's a tough job) we noticed a very clear trend emerge. When dressing for the first seriously high profile awards ceremony of the season it seems the A-list turn to one failsafe formula: a white, ruffled gown. From Lara Flynn Boyle's now infamous David Cardona leotard and tutu in 2003 (which still tops GG worst-dressed lists but we think is rather fabulous) to Gwyneth Paltrow's Balenciaga puff-sleeved number in 2006 and Cameron's full-length Valentino number at the last Globes it's clear white's the winner. Perhaps it's because the Globes are considered a little less formal than the Oscars, with stars willing to take more risks than at an event where their red carpet choice is analysed by millions around the world live. Or maybe the starlets just want to make us jealous of their winter sun-kissed sun...
