This year’s Globes saw its usual share of over-the-top jewelry and makeup looks.
Long known as the less-buttoned-up cousin of the Oscars, it’s no surprise that the Golden Globes remain an occasion for pulling out the stops.
Interest in bigger, bolder pieces — from earrings to cocktail rings — show no signs of shrinking.
Of her oversized Fred Leighton Indian-style earrings, Nicole Kidman teased, "They were almost as big as my nose in ‘The Hours.’" Antique, Asian-influenced pieces also turned up on the necks of Cate Blanchett and Rachel Griffiths.
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, more than a few actresses arrived on the red carpet in good company. Harry Winston bedecked Halle Berry to the tune of $4.7 million for a blue-and-white diamond suite which included a 30-karat pear-shaped blue diamond pendant. And DeBeers covered Queen Latifah’s décolletage in a rainfall of diamonds valued at $175,000. Edgier still was the Bulgari Collection diamond cuff wrapping Jennifer Aniston’s wrist. Packing more dazzle for the dollar were hand-dyed satin clutches trimmed in crystals from Tod’s.
Even some of the more delicate pieces made a statement. Jennifer Garner paired her simple black Ralph Lauren gown with a seed-pearl necklace by Janis Savitt for M+J Savitt. Pearlized butterflies topped Debra Messing’s heels by Giuseppe Zanotti, while tiny diamond versions by Cathy Waterman dangled from Laura Linney’s lobes; and Allison Janney wore a tulip made from pink diamonds, rubies and pearls from Fred Paris.
Makeup went two ways, observed L’Oréal consulting artist Collier Strong. "There was the sophisticated, dramatic look with red lipstick — that always works." At times, however, it proved a little heavy-handed on such a bright sunny day, as in the case of Allison Janney, Cate Blanchett and Heather Graham, or the come-hither, heavily shadowed eye looks seen on Jennifer Connelly and Nia Vardalos. The other trend flirted with color, enthused Strong, who gave Kristin Davis "a contemporary version of retro" that concentrated on pink. "Look at Cameron Diaz with the blue eyeshadow and fuchsia lipstick. She’s always a little daring."
In hair, while a few channeled Rita Hayworth’s soft, face-framing waves (seen on Marg Helgenberger and Connelly), most swept every strand back, back away from the face. "Everyone’s doing Debra Messing’s hair," pointed out Etienne Taenaka of Vidal Sassoon. "It’s that tousled curl, pulled back and worn with a low knot in the back." Or simply pulled back into a loose chignon (Rachel Griffiths, Nicole Kidman), with iron-stiff strands of varying lengths fanning out (Julianne Moore, Edie Falco). "Disappointingly," he continued, "we saw a lot of ponytails on these women — Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Garner, Lara Flynn Boyle. Ponytails are for the gym."
“My personal philosophy to beauty is paying attention to oneself. I love to be outdoors, lots of fresh air, trying to take care of yourself as best you can. I always notice that comes through,” says Felicity Jones, the global face of @shiseido-owned @cledepeaubeauteus, which launches today.
