It was a night to be remembered for some dresses and a night to forget for others at the Golden Globes award ceremony on Sunday night. Jolie’s sensational atelier Versace dress divided critics however there is no doubt that it made the tattooed actress look elegant and graceful; not unlike the Hollywood glamour of a bygone era.
It was a look that was reminiscent of Lauren Bacall at the height of her fame as a confident smouldering starlet with full red lips, a satin cream dress and scarlet red panel slashed to reveal her thigh. This accompanied with her cream peep toe heels made it a classic choice that was definitely worth an award. Jolie’s ultimate accessory of the evening was her husband, Brad Pitt who she said was ‘prettier than her’ despite him walking with the aid of a cane at the event. His outfit did not disappoint as he wore a Salvatore Ferragamo tuxedo, making them the unrivalled best-dressed couple on the red carpet. Unfortunately their sartorial success was not reflected in their career achievements as they left empty-handed.
As is typical of this annual event in the fashion calendar, it was not just Jolie who managed to sparkle and shine on the night. Charlize Theron, looked angelic in a white Dior gown that was tied at the waist in a bow, secured with a sparkling diamond cluster. The matching hairband and clutch completed this statement outfit. Other women who shone whiter than white were Kate Beckinsale in a strapless Roberto Cavalli matching it with a stunning smile and Elle McPherson in a fishtail corseted Zac Posen dress, which accentuated her incredible figure.
The Globes are known for their gowns but it is a select few who can make an outfit radiate with true beauty. The happy smiles on the women’s faces showed that no matter what, behind the seams they were having a good time.
