Now the dust has settled on another red carpet, and the flashbulbs come and gone, we’ve had the time to peruse, sit back and reflect on the fashion winners and losers of the Golden Globe Awards 2013. As ever, ceremony dresses ignite heated debates across our fashion team with few unanimous heroes (Helen Mirren) or duds (Heidi Klum, we’ve warned you before).
So we decided to highlight the five dresses that have most divided our opinion and present our judgements below.
1. Lucy Liu in Carolina Herrera
First up, Lucy Liu’s floral ballgown by Carolina Herrera has been labelled as too Cinderella-like for some tastes, but for Grazia’s Shopping Editor Lily Russo the choice added, “a welcome breath of spring elegance to the red carpet.” Fashion Editor Catherine Nieto agreed saying, “I love her floral fest gown - despite the fullness of the shape its traditional silhouette doesn't drown her petite frame.”
2. Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad
Jennifer Lopez walked the red carpet in a form fitting Zuhair Murad gown, so what was the verdict? While Lily sees J.Lo’s minxy look as “sexy but obvious,” Fashion Assistant Caroline Ferry says “only J.Lo could make a long sleeved, high necked dress look nearly naked!”
3. Rachel Weisz in Louis Vuitton
Rachel Weisz accessorized her GG look with a broodingly handsome Daniel Craig, but what was our take on her fashion combo? Executive Fashion & Beauty Director Charlie Miller loved Rachel’s choice describing it as “fun, demure and dramatic all at once,” whereas Caroline felt the dress was “too fragmented for my tastes."
4. Halle Berry in Atelier Versace
Halle Berry’s Atelier Versace floorsweeper generated a fierce debate – did it “perfectly frame Halle’s jaw-dropping body,” as Charlie opined, or was it a case of “too much going on, with a hint of Angelina’s leg cleavage to boot,” as Fashion Intern Josh Newis Smith argued?
5. Jessica Chastain in Calvin Klein Collection
The final dress to inspired both ire and awe was Jessica Chastain’s powder blue Calvin Klein gown. Where Josh was left cold by the pastelly colour choice, Catherine felt the colour was great on Ms Chastain's creamy skin.
