Aaand Awards season has officially kicked off and will soon be heading into high gear! For us fashion enthusiasts, that means only one thing: Red Carpet Fashion. The good, the bad, the oh so ugly-what-were-they-thinking-someone-is-getting-fired looks that we have all been waiting for will now be front-page news for us all to ooh and ahh and ugh over.
The Golden Globes serve as the starting gun to the marathon that is the Oscars. Not only are they the barometer to determine who wins what, but also who wears what, which is more important. Why? Because it fascinates us. And the Globes did not disappoint.
Below are a handful of the night’s best fashion moments as well as 4 of the night’s biggest red carpet trends:

RED. What was once a taboo on the red carpet turned out to be THE trend for the 2013 Golden Globes. Actresses known for their stand out performances on screen brought this same daring attitude to the fashion arena, and boy did it pay off!

Black seemed to be the color of choice for the seasoned actresses of the night, with a few young vixens (ahem, McFever relapse anyone?) thrown in the mix. Rather than cause a stir with bright colors; plunging necklines, body hugging silhouettes, and blinged out accents were called upon to bring the DRAMA.

Sexy and sensual with a dash of sweetness was what was accomplished with the sea of blush gowns that walked down the red carpet. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads all had fun with this nude trend that allowed them to show off their trim physiques.

Sparkle was a girl’s best friend, and full body at that. Old Hollywood glamour was called upon to continue the 1920’s trend of beads and rhinestones that has been sweeping the fashion world for the past few seasons. Rather than be wasted on minute details and trims, entire bodies were bedazzled with a shimmer that any wallflower would shy away from.
