Honestly, I couldn’t get myself into the Golden Globes fashion this year. There were plenty of pretty reds, a lot of ho-hum, and a good amount of “they look nice but so what.”
Really, when’s the next time you (or I) will be dolled up in a major gown? It’s fun for the first few times your have the occassion to wear one. After that, it’s too much work (for me).
I was looking for a way to make the Golden Globes red carpet relatable to something that makes sense for us. Something you could look marvelous in your life, rather than the fantasy of “watching stars in gowns.”
I found it in Emma Stone.
How fresh does a chic jumpsuit look at night?
Yes, you can wear pants to a formal, as long as they are the right pants and the right attitude.
Emma Stone’s straight leg pants, beaded bustier, and mega bow are a timeless, and ageless way to stand out at night. Swap out the strapless top for a beaded shell or add a short jacket, if you like.
The super sash could be a less extreme if you tie a lightweight oblong scarf around your waist. Whatever you do, the simplicity is just stunning.
