Breakout the Asti, award season 2016 is upon us! Things kicked off at last night’s Palm Springs Awards Gala and our favorite Golden Globes are merely one week away! So, what did everyone wear? Let’s look!
Quite honestly, if last night’s red carpet wasn’t the kick-off to a new award season – I would totally skip it. Turns out, it was a dud carpet with with not much fanfare in attendance. But, as the Palm Springs awards are the start of award season, I wanted to roundup the red carpet just to celebrate award season finally being underway!
The biggest surprise of the night? Cate Blanchett showing up and stealing the show!
Kidding! Of course Cate the Great looked better than the rest, but with rising stars like Amber Heard and Brie Larson in her company – the odds were most definitely in her favor. That isn’t to say that the other ladies weren’t charming. Brie Larson herself smoldered in an emerald green number, as she walked the red carpet as a nominee for her work in the book-to-film adaptation Room.
Alongside Brie where more fresh faces of young Hollywood: Saoirse Ronan and Rooney Mara, who both fell flat. Brooklyn‘s Saoirse wore a mishmash floral number, as Carol‘s Rooney sucked the life out of moody cocktail-length Lanvin. Both looks missed the mark in my book and did very little to raise my excitement for the season ahead. Fortunately dame was there to add a little spice! Leave it to Helen at age 70 to upstage girls in their twenties.
While it wasn’t the best red carpet, the Palm Springs awards do mark the beginning of Award Season 2016! In case you don’t know, I tend to go all out for awards season. So stay tuned for lots of live-tweeting and dissecting of this year’s best and worst looks! If you’re a fan of watching the shows, be sure to live-tweet with me! I’m always snarking up a storm about the red carpet looks and the good (and sometimes bad) moments of the night.
Give me a follow and I’ll see you Sunday, January 10 as I live-tweet the Golden Globes red carpet! *throws confetti*
