The Golden Globes 2013: A Hot Mess of Red Carpet Mayhem

Award season is in full swing and the starlets did not disappoint (for the most part) in bringing the glamour to the Golden Globes 2013 red carpet last night. Fifteen minutes into watching the red carpet coverage it was apparent that waves were going to be the biggest beauty trend. Some opted for loose, sexy romantic waves (a la Farrah Fawcett) like Claire Danes, Sarah Hyland, and Salma Hayek, while others went full-out Old Hollywood Glam like Connie Britton, Amy Adams, Rachel Weisz and Nicole Richie. Tons of red carpet beauties (Heidi Klum, Kelly Osborn, Jessica Alba, Isla Fisher, Megan Fox) decided to put a modern edge on the Old Glam look by sweeping the hair to one side. I also saw several lovely ladies sashaying at the opposite end of the spectrum with stick-straight locks like Kerry Washington, Stacy Keibler, Marion Cotillard, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Julianna Margulies, and Debra Messing (the latter two opting for structured ponytails).

The makeup trends were a bit more all over the place… We saw the sultry smoky eye (almost always a perfect fit for the red carpet) done in intense dark liners on the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Catherine McPhee and Claire Danes while Michelle Dockery, Amanda Sayfried, and Kerry Washington rocked a softer, more diffused smoky eye with browns and purples.  Unfortunately the “no makeup look” (also kindly called the “Fresh Face Look” by the media and not-so-kindly “The Emperor’s New Clothes” by me) reared its bland, boring head on the carpet last night, making victims Olivia Munn and Rosario Dawson look like they ran out of their rooms before the makeup artist had time to finish. Now I will say that Sienna Miller also sported the “no makeup look” but she’s so flawlessly gorgeous it worked.
