Look of the Moment / The Golden Globes

Charlize Theron

At last night’s Golden Globe Awards Hollywood actresses attempted a number of fashion’s best-loved trends (some with terrific success, others without). White and pale pastels — as seen on many spring runways — were present: Charlize Theron wore pale pink Dior Couture; Jessica Biel was in a more romantic all-white beaded dress by Elie Saab; and Angelina Jolie’s silk Atelier Versace gown, with its shot of red across the collarbone, made one of the more lasting impressions. Emerald green — prefall’s favorite color — had its sparkling moments on Kelly Macdonald of “Boardwalk Empire” (in Lorena Sarbu), Zooey Deschanel (in Prada), Evan Rachel Wood (in Gucci Première) and Laura Dern, whose Andrew Gn dress featured another of spring’s favorite silhouettes: the deep V. (Emma Stone in Lanvin, Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji and Nicole Kidman in studded Atelier Versace also participated in the plunging neckline.) The peekaboo back, a red-carpet favorite for how it photographs (“Here, catch me looking over my shoulder at the cameras”) was worn by Claire Danes and Jessica Lange (both in keyhole cutouts by J. Mendel). It was fun to see Rooney Mara in the Nina Ricci dress that Peter Copping showed just one week ago in New York — editors here called it a red-carpet winner, and indeed, on Mara, it was. Still, “appropriate” might be the best word for the look last night, all around. Hopefully the Academy Awards, almost one month away, will bring a bit more daring to the podium.
