21 January 2015
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past week, you’ll have seen that the first event of the year on the Hollywood calendar took place recently, with a mass overload of celeb snaps in pretty frocks and dashing dinner jackets. The Golden Globes Awards 2015 saw Boyhood win Best Motion Picture, Eddie Redmayne take home Best Actor for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything and, another British success, Joanne Froggatt claim Best Supporting Actress for her role in Downton Abbey.
And whilst the event holds prestige in the world of film and acting for its recognition of those who have achieved great things….we are concerned with a more important issue - the fashion! As always, the Golden Globes sets a precedent for the year to come - and, believe me, the bar has been set high. Here at FYFO we have our favourites. Sienna Miller looks stunning as always in this heavily embellished chinoiserie effect Miu Miu gown - the low-v neckline adds a hint of sex-appeal to the somewhat courtly fabric. Amy Adams gets full marks for her fab colour palette; this greecian Versace gown in pale lilac sets off her auburn hair, and gives her skin a soft peachy glow! Finally, Michelle Monaghan opts for a simple yet effective look with this shimmering strappy Jason Wu gown, hinting towards Kate Moss circa 1993.

So, here are some of the key trends which graced the red carpet which we will be channelling this season!
Kruger in Emilia Wickstead, Beckinsdale in Elie Saab, Refaeli in Kaufman Franco, Stone in Lanvin, Johnson in Chanel.
We are excited to announce that glitter and sparkles were everywhere on the red carpet! Keep lines simple but metallics bold in 2015 like Diane Kruger and Bar Refaeli for a modern take on classic glamour. Too shy for head-to-toe glitter? Make like Emma Stone with a sparkly accent, who created a perfect blend of feminine and masculine with a Lanvin jumpsuit – the clean tailoring was set off by a huge bow and beaded bodice exposing her shoulders.
Williams in Armani Privè, Mirren in Dolce & Gabbana, Ora in Zac Posen, Klum in Versace.
Dunham in Zac Posen, Schilling in custom Ralph Lauren, Mara in Miu Miu, Zeta-Jones in Angel Sanchez.
Red was the number-one choice at the Globes this year, with at least ten of our beloved celebs donning the seductive colour. We love Rita Ora’s simple frock – perfectly sculpted over her curves, this strapless number had the addition of a mermaid-style skirt…every girls dream! Taylor Schillings red gown couldn’t be more different in style, but it’s still one of our favourites. The ‘Orange is the New Black’ star opted for a modern take on the classic ball-gown – a custom piece by Ralph Lauren. A cross-over halter neck left the back exposed was masterfully teamed with a full-skirt. Lines were simple and effective. Red can look fab on both blondes andbrunettes! Why not keep it simple by experimenting with bold red lips this year? We love this darker shade by MAC called Chili!

Another colour trend spotted on the Golden Globes carpet was yellow! Most celebs went for a pale tone, like Jenna Dewan, who wore a Caroline Herrera strapless dress with the addition of a flowing trail and accessorised with diamante encrusted jewellery to make her look every inch the princess! Naomi Watts opted for a bolder sunshine yellow in a Gucci column dress teamed with a daring Bulgari snake necklace. The one piece of advice we will be taking away from these ladies? Silver and yellow work together like a dream! Simplify this trend by adding a pair of these to your yellow ensemble….!
