Golden Globes Best Dressed 2015: The GLAMOUR, Henny!!!

It's finally awards season, which ultimately means excessive glamour, hunty! Let's do my top three of the Golden Globes 2015. First up, my fave redhead, Emma Stone in this stunning jumpsuit by Lanvin.
My god, I love Alber and his creations and that bow is such a chic, cute touch and it's quintessential Lanvin. The embellished bustier-top piece, the satin bow, the fact that there's trousers involved....pretty much it's a #LOOK. It's always great to see celebrities embrace trousers and step out of the usual cocktail dress attire and do something a bit out of the box. Most importantly, it does all of that while staying absolutely chic. It's Lanvin, after all. Since I'm becoming quite the makeup aficionado, I really do find the makeup totally complimentary the ensemble. It's very simple with the your-lip-color-but-better lip and the subtle smokey cat eye.
Sing it with me, y'all...."I'm still, I'm still Jenny from da block, used to have a little, now I have a lot". Yasss at my queen Jennifer Lopez giving you full on glamour. She's giving you pageantry hair, legs for days, cleavage and skin to lust over...homegurl is IT.
I'm not the biggest fan of Zuhair Murad, but it's a really stellar dress and I love the cape-like-train it features. Werq, mama. And a big "F" you to Jeremy Renner for making such a tasteless comment. How she looks should not warrant unnecessary, uncouth comments. My third and final favorite/best dressed goes to Julianne Moore. This woman exudes class and sophistication while staying eternally cool. This Givenchy gown is giving me metallic, goth, mermaid goddess and I'm so here for it.
Okay, but I'm really loving her lashes for some reason....are they real? Are they falsies? Maybe she's born with it? Maybe it's Maybelline? Who knows...
Also, major shout out to my gurl Lupita Nyong'o in this stunning Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown that screams spring.
Like, I'm not gagging over it, but it's cute. However, what I was gagging over were her pair of glasses miss Nyong'o wore when she was presenting. She's servin' you beauty and brains...I could nevah!
And for my "WE WERE ALL ROOTING FOR YOU HOW DARE YOU!!" title, I'm giving it to Gone Girl herself with that damn Vera Wang look, Rosamund Pike. Like, whyyyyyyyyyy would you choose such an unflattering dress?
I mean, kudos for looking impeccable after giving birth last month and looking like that now but that dress does you no favors, sweetie. At least her makeup and hair were on point.
I know, Chrissy Teigen, I feel the same way, sis..
As for my Best Dressed: Mens Edition, I'm giving it to David Oyelowo in a glittery suit. I hate three piece suits, but I'm totally in favor of overlooking that for this sparkly, edgy ensemble.
Don't even get me started on how I'm in dire need of menswear on the red carpet to really step it up, but alas men just don't give a f*** about dressing up......or do men not have to uphold to the same standards that women face and thus they can dress so damn basic and no one will bat an eye? Hmmm at this male privilege...
Anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if the suit was by Lanvin. I love the sparkly, shimmery fabric that keeps things edgy, current, and interesting without risking the integrity of the entire ensemble. It's masculine, yet fun and I really appreciate that. The only thing I'd do is swap those sparkly shoes (it's too much sparkle by that point, to be honest) for some patent shoes.

Now, let's prepare for the Oscars. I'm hoping my gurl Rosamund redeems herself since she's the only one I'm rooting for this awards season. Gone Girl was brilliant and she needs her stylist to step it up. Who were your faves? Let yah gurl know...
