Golden Globes Baby!

Golden Globes Baby!


The Golden Globes 2015 held yesterday gave Hollywoods' A-listers (or as Tina Fey puts it: “a bunch of despicable, spoiled minimally talented brats”) their first opportunity to dazzle and shine the highly anticipated first red carpet of the year. And like every year, everybody is talking about dresses, accessories and killer bodies, neglecting the fact that the most important tool to walk down the carpet is of course the perfect pair of heels.

E! ‘s attempt to embarrass their guests with the stiletto-cam rather than the manicure-cam didn’t quite cover it, loads of hassle to lift all the layers of fabric to hit that damn little thingie on the floor. But then again, most of Hollywoods' royalty channeled “Old Hollywood Glamour” (read: fashion-retro instead of fashion-forward) which is all about long, floor- and heel covering evening gowns.

The shoe trend of the evening was a classic black pump followed by the nude sandal (soooo 1950-2014) so it's Lena Dunham who wins my favorite shoe moment by kick-ass carpet in a red pointy number.

In other fashion news: Amal Clooney's gloves probably have their own twitter account by now, Jared Letho’s messy braid will put hair stylists out of work (DIY!!!) and Conchita Wurst snatched up the 'most glamorous and best dressed' title of the night, thanks to a green velvet dress which looked very “Out of the Woods” and something Snow White would craft from the drapes straight of the dwarf’s mansion.

But why not: it’s all a fairytale after all. Happy Golden Globes shoe-moments!

Today’s shoes are various

When Anne Hathaway stepped out of her limo on December 10th, she sported two upcoming trends of 2013: a neat pixie and gladiator heels. I won't discuss the haircut as it's not sculpted hair we're talking (note: wearing undergarments to a premiere is generally a good idea) - it's the armour on her legs we need to have a word over.

Totally get that modern Panem et circenses (aka red carpet and cameras) require some kind of "protecting gear", but the last time I saw braces like that I was 14 and they were on my teeth. Jennifer Lopez wore the same kind on the cover of Harper's Bazaar, and of course Russell Crowe in "Gladiator" (Tom Ford, where were you then?) but still can't help it. N.O.T. F.L.A.T.T.E.R.I.N.G. Only positive I can think about, is the extra space to keep cab fare (some of us have to drive taxi not limo), cell phone, keys, lipstick and the stolen leftovers from a really posh buffet in extra provided leather grid space. Clutches nowadays are sooooo small....

Maybe it's not a coincidence that Anne wore them to attend "Les Misérables" (nomen est omen after all) and actually totally get that she didn't put on any underwear. Those heels definitely call for some distraction. A pixie for example.
