I don’t know about you, but we were head over stilettos about all the fashions on the red carpets this week. If you were following us on Twitter, you know that I was garnishing the “picks” at the Golden Globes with olives (“I loves”) – from one olive for the looks that were, well, the pits to five for those that were simply delicious.
While there were several gals at the Globes who received five olives, including Reese Witherspoon who has never looked better, it was Felicity Jones who had the best party look of the week. A Best Actress award nominee for her performance in The Theory of Everything, Felicity was a fashion standout in a spectacular Dior ball gown in a fresh and sophisticated shade of teal blue.
We particularly loved the gown’s nod to Dior’s New Look, the revolutionary silhouette that the couturier introduced in 1947 that has had a long history with Hollywood’s most fashionable women. Defined by its nipped-in waist and voluminous skirts, the New Look was a go-to silhouette for glamorous stars including Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor, who wore a voluminous Dior gown to the 1961 Academy Awards.
Jones, who is establishing herself as one of Hollywood’s chicest actresses, accessorized the gown perfectly with Brian Atwood shoes, vintage ear clips from Van Cleef & Arpels and a perfect, sleek chignon. We especially loved the pop of tangerine color – Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in Pliesse Soleil – on her lips. What a fresh and modern touch.
Our gal may have lost the Golden Globe to Julianne Moore who won for her performance in Still Alice but, in the fashion department, it is still Felicity. Well done, doll.
