Beautiful Beautiful Fashion At The 2012 Golden Globes

18 Jan

I wasn’t even going to watch the red carpet coverage of the Golden globes. After staying awake, cooing and tweeting all night last year, I just was too tired to try this year. However, I ‘stumbled upon’ a re-run of the coverage on E! and Angelina Jolie (+ a few other people) changed everything. This is my first ever blog post of an awards show and it is exciting.

I caught a glimpse of Angelina Jolie gliding out of her limo and on to the red carpet and I was spellbound. The dress, that flash of red at the shoulder, the soft draping, the way the silky fabric glided on her body, what a stunner!

At every interval, I saw some more stunners, Tilda Swinton had me in that edgy Haider Ackermann; Nicole Kidman was stunning in Versace and I loved Jessica Chastain in Givenchy. Of course some people bombed, in fact many people had me seriously wondering…’what happened to the stylists in Hollywood…???’ Well, here we won’t focus on negativity, we love beautiful things.

My favourite picks below.

It’s a new year, let’s make it fashionable! ;)

Quoting them, Mrs Obama is ‘Jackie Kennedy with a law degree from Harvard and street sense from Chicago’s South Side.’ She’s a fashion icon, a forceful advocate of school nutrition standards and military families’ affairs and is more involved in policy affairs than Laura Bush.’

clockwise: Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Indra Nooyi, Hilary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey

 

Oprah Winfrey came in third place, Hilary Clinton came in fifth, Lady Gaga came in seventh place! I guess that would be for wearing that meat dress to the MTV awards? I am so shocked.
Beyonce was at 9th position, Angelina Jolie was at 21st – ok, she’s also a UN ambassador, Madonna was 29th most powerful woman, Heidi Klum was 39th, more powerful than the Queen of England who was at 41st position.
SJP was no. 45 and Vogue’s Anna Wintour was 56. Even Gisele Bundchen was rated the 72nd most powerful woman in the world.
You can see the full list on the forbes site. I just find it interesting that models, actresses, fashion designers and musicians are on the list of most powerful women in the world. Says a lot about the far-reaching influence of this fashion and lifestyle industry. Technology and the internet has made it even more possible, I mean, Lady Gaga has almost 7 million followers on twitter.
Some interesting things to think about, how am I influencing my world?
