Celebrity Trends. Golden Globes Style 2010

January 19, 2010 • Celebrity Style

What's more fun than guessing which designer each celeb wore? Picking out the trends, of course. The 2010 Golden Globes saw the typical one-sleeve frock, mermaid fish tail, bare neck neckline, feathers, and thick stiletto heels of Golden Globes past. 

But the true trends are the ones we haven't seen before. Awards season is just beginning and here's what this year's Golden Globes is telling us will be chic for ceremonies this year.  


There's a new frofrou embellishment on the scene replacing feathers and fringe of Golden Globes fashion faux-pas past. This one is feminine and flirty, can go on the neckline, around hips or atop a shoulder, and is right on the money.

Washed Out Peach

Before there was the purple and the jewel tones, there was the washed out peach, a fleshy color I've always hated and one that made each and every celeb that wore look that much more pale. Who knew it would be the standout color of the season. That is, if the celebs of the Golden Globes red carpet have anything to say about it. This time many had it on like second skin (literally!)—Drew Barrymore wore it, so did Maggie Gyllenhaal.  Unfortunate that it was a trend, really.

Purple was the stand out color of the evening, overpowering all sequins, silver, and strapless dresses. If you haven't already noticed it as the "IT" color of Fall, they'll you'll certainly keep an eye out for it this coming awards season.

The Dames Have It

The thirty and twenty-something celebs had stiff competition from a group of highly stylish ladies who outright beat them at their own game. These ladies, despite being more than two decades older than the others, were just as stylish and so much more sophisticated even when they were trying to look younger (ahem, Glenn Close.) Take a look.

Low Cut Dresses

Unfortunately, this trend featured some of the worst of the night and even lace insets, no jewelry, sparkly sequins, and big bosoms couldn't make a difference

Jewel Tones

While purple made its mark, other shiny brights were in abundance. It looks like the younger celebs are forgoing the forgiving, but boring black of past decades and oomphing up their star power with statement gowns in an array of jewel and neon tones.

Short Dresses

Looks like acceptance speeches aren't the only thing being cut short around here! Perhaps celebs are looking for comfort in their high-style or perhaps they're eager to try a new trend. Whatever the case, it's unfortunate that Old Hollywood and glamorous gowns go out the window to be replaced by mod motifs. These celebs looked great, but I hope it doesn't have staying power.

Making a statement is easy, but calling attention to something new makes us all do a double take.
