Happy Awards Season. Now that the Golden Globe nominees have been announced, it’s officially time to start freaking out about what our favorite celebrities will wear on the red carpet. There were some huge moments at The Critic’s Choice Awards: Nicole Kidman in Brandon Maxwell — need we say more? But in my opinion, the Globes is the ultimate red carpet, fashionably speaking. It’s less serious than the Oscar’s and more fun than the Critics’ Choice Awards. It’s not as free wheeling as the Grammy’s, but still allows for some pizazz.
And with Best Actress nominees like Jessica Chastain and Ruth Negga, we are in for a very chic treat. Here, we theorize, or maybe a better word is fantasize, on what the five nominees will wear.
Amy Adams in Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2017
Amy Adams does fairy princess well. It’s just the truth. She’s like the human version of a Disney lead character. This Carolina Herrera dress, fresh off the runways from Pre-Fall 2017, is the perfect option for Adams. It has the princess element that fits her bubbly personality (I mean, that IS Cinderella blue, right?) but feels elevated enough for a best actress nominee.
Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive Fall 2016
Jessica Chastain and Armani Privé go together like peanut butter and jelly. It just works. The only thing more glamourous than Chastain in Armani? Chastain in a one-shoulder Armani. She has the best décolletage in the business. This couture gown is just one level more serious from other, more brightly colored dresses Chastain has worn on previous red carpets. Best Supporting Actress dress, meet Best Actress dress.
Isabelle Huppert in Givenchy Fall Couture 2016
When I think of Isabelle Huppert, I think of #FrenchGirlGoals, which is why I’m hoping she sticks to a French brand, like Givenchy. This dress is definitely a bit racier than her usual red carpet looks (she opts mostly for well tailored pants suits), but how many times do you get to be a Best Actress nominee? If ever there was a time to wear a black beaded couture gown…
Ruth Negga in Valentino Spring 2017
Ruth Negga. Ruth Negga. Ruth Negga. Give me everything in your closet. Nega has torn into the fashion world like a tornado of chicness, wearing brands like Rodarte, Chanel, and Gucci. But if you were to count up all her looks since entering the spotlight, you’d see she favors Valentino. And for good reason. This Spring 2017 dress is exactly what the doctor ordered for Negga’s first Golden Globes.
Natalie Portman in Dior Spring 2017
If ever there was a time for Natalie Portman to use her Miss Dior status, it would be now, and it would be for the purposes of wearing Maria Grazia Chiuri's first runway collection on the red carpet. Portman usually sticks to classic, romantic gowns, like this flowy, low-cut number. The rope detailing on the straps gives it a little bit extra oomph.
