Maggie Gyllenhaal has been known to compare the way she dresses to how she decorates at home. After seeing her drop-dead gorgeous, geo-patterned Golden Globes gown, we're thinking we need to arrange a home tour ASAP.
While walking the Globes red carpet, Gyllenhaal's gold and black Marc Jacobs gown was a total head-turner. Last night in New York, the actress caught up with InStyle at the grand opening of Vandal, a new TAO Group restaurant, to chat about how the look came together.
"You know, I had no reason to go to the Globes this year, but then they asked me to go at the last-minute and I had such a good time last year. And so, I was like 'Yeah! Ok, let's go,'" Gyllenhaal told InStyle.
The process of picking her dress in a hurry was surprisingly easy, the actress said. With the help of her stylist, Erin Walsh, the look came together in no time at all.
Miss Maggie #outthedoor #redcarpetready last night 💋⭐️✨💫 so here's the thing with @marcjacobs and this dress and this lady- I always talk about walking the line, of balancing dichotomies to make a statement. I have always loved how #MarcJacobs has maintained that balancing act- finding the reference, and then turning it upside down. The classic with the modern, the masculin/ feminin, the fun of a little vulgarity mixed with restraint. Here's to dreaming a little and having fun with fashion- and to my team who makes it all work and worthwhile!

"To find the dress, we tried on like five dresses and we just didn’t make a big deal out of it," Gyllenhaal told InStyle. "Then, my girlfriend, a really good friend of mine, did my makeup. And then, a guy I’ve never met before did my hair and he also was great! It was really easygoing and I really rolled with everything."
Sometimes, the best looks come together effortlessly, as was proven here. InStyle's Fashion News Director Eric Wilson also applauded the actress's red carpet-worthy style by including Gyllenhaal in his "10 Best Dressed at the 2016 Golden Globes," a much deserved honor.
"A case for taking chances on graphic prints and treatments, Gyllenhaal rolled the dice and came up a winner," Wilson wrote. And, we couldn't agree more.
