Beaded Beauties: The All-over Sequined Gown Trend...as seen at the 2016 Golden Globes Red Carpet
Sequined gowns were very popular on the red carpet at last night's 2016 Golden Globe Awards. To begin my list of examples of the All-Over Beaded Beauties, I have to start with the gorgeous Debbie Matenopoulos, co-host of "The Insider" TV Show on the red carpet last night wearing...on of MY designs!!
Debbie Matenopoulos in custom NIKOLAKI by Nick Verreos/David Paul: I know that I may be a bit biased in putting my "Greek Sister From Another Mister" here since she wore one of our designs but yet, it did fall right in line with this All-Over Sequined Trend seen at the 2016 Golden Globes. The silk chiffon column gown featured thousands of hand-beaded black and silver paillettes, a bias-cut cowl neckline, open back and slight dramatic train. And, yes, I think she looked GORGEOUS (of course!).
Julianne Moore in Tom Ford: Julianne Moore chose this blue sequined column gown from Tom Ford. The dress had long sleeves and silk velvet bands that curved around her neck and armhole/shoulder. While I appreciate its simplicity, I almost feel as if she's too covered up. On a nice note: I am so intrigued by that ring on her finger!
Kate Hudson in Michael Kors Collection: Kate's blush-pink dress--or crop top and skirt--from Michael Kors Collection gave a 70's Farrah Fawcett vibe in its styling. Although I do like it's retro simplicity, I think the nude color washed the beautiful Hudson out. I was also not a fan of her hair; she looked as if she just came from the gym.
Carly Chaikin in Juan Carlos Obando: I loved this gown by LA-based designer Juan Carlos Obando. The gown features iridescent sequins in a devore velvet-like pattern, a cinched waist, peplum detail and gathered halter neckline. It's a rather simple silhouette but the star her is that sequined fabric!
Kate Bosworth in Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda: Kate Bosworth wore this pink sequined strapless gown with UBER embellished corset/bustier. Very Baroque Principessa!
Olivia Wilde in Michael Kors Collection: This all-over beaded column gown, from Michael Kors Collection, had a plunging neckline (very popular!) and 3" wide waistband that accentuated the waist. I'm not so sure she needed to wear that necklace with this gown since it almost seems unnecessary; a gold bangle cuff on her wrist might have been better.
Brie Larson in Calvin Klein Collection: Brie Larson was part of this 2016 Golden Globes Sequined Gown Brigade in this gold all-over beaded silk chiffon halter-neck gown from Calvin Klein Collection. The gown had peek-a-boo sides and slight keyhole front. I think this was a beautiful gown and one of the best in this Sequined Gown Trend; it fit nicely, perfect length and was 70's Disco Chic!
