Celebrity fashion has a ‘trickle down’ effect on rag trade. While the Oscar film awards night is the holy grail of celebrity fashion, Golden Globe awards 2017 fashion is the prequel to the Oscars.
Golden Globe Awards 2017 fashion metallics
What was trending on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards 2017? Golden Globe Awards 2017 fashion was ruled by handcrafted details and metallics. Monochrome was abundant to keep the black and white loyalists happy. However, true to the ’80s spirit, neutral dresses were peppered with sequins and beads. Blake Lively’s Atelier Versace dress with silver pockets and Thandie Newton’s Monse off shoulder white dress with a fiery hem were examples of the neutral with metallics accents trend.
Quantico star Priyanka Chopra shimmered in sequinned Ralph Lauren, as did Naomi Harris and Sophia Vergara. Drew Barrymore and Australia’s award hopeful, Nicole Kidman was resplendant in off shoulder silver dresses. Nicole was, however, upstaged by Emma Stone, who bagged the best actress award, dressed in a silver star spangled pale pink Valentino dress. TV actress Tracee Ellis Ross not only won the best actress award for her role in the TV comedy Black-ish, she easily was one of the best dressed in a hand beaded silver sheath dress.
Clearly, metallics will rule in 2017. If you are intimidated by metalics, try them as accessories. A metallic beaded clutch bag combined with a class LBD will ensure you are on trend.

Stark monochromes were softened by the presence of the pastel palette – dove grey, coral, salmon. Jessica Chastain’s cornflower blue Prada dress had beaded embellishments. Lily Collins looked exquisite in an old rose Zuhair Murad tiered lace dress with vintage Harry Winston diamonds.
