Golden Globes Fashion: Who Wore What?

By | Sunday January 15, 2012 @ 9:21pm PST

Monica Corcoran is contributing to Deadline’s Golden Globe coverage.

It wasn’t the best of dresses or the worst of dresses. Rather, this year’s red carpet at the Golden Globes felt more like a Baltimore debutante ball than a ribald Hollywood awards show. Updos didn’t crest like tsunamis, diamonds seemed to be hibernating, and the only cleavage worth ogling came compliments of Sofia Vergara and Salma Hayek.

Diane Lane, Golden GlobesIf nothing else, a nude dress contrasts well with the red carpet. But a bevy of blush gowns hardly induces fashion envy. Charlize Theron, Angelina Jolie, Kristen Wiig and Kate Beckinsale all chose the tame epidermis hue, though Jolie’s slash of crimson at the neckline of her Atelier Versace gown — like a gash to her clavicle — certainly added Shakespearean drama. Purple, too, made a popular showing among nominees like Octavia Spencer, Shailene Woodley, Julianna Margulies and Emma Stone. (The royal color has been heralded as the “it” shade for spring.) Metallics, an awards-show favorite and a shortcut to glamour, turned up on Diane Lane (pictured right), Madonna, Lea Michele and Nicole Richie. Lane’s gilded Reem Acra aced best dress; Michele’s risque molten silver Marchesa didn’t work because the young actress tried to outshine it. Shades of blue — from navy to cerulean — also proved a popular choice. Jodie Foster, bedecked in a beaded teal Giorgio Armani gown with a strapless corset and a cinched waist, looked feminine and unflappable.

Madonna, Golden GlobesAs for skin, there were few plunging necklines. Sigh. Jolie, Jessica Biel and Viola Davis relied on center or side-slits to bare a bit of gam, and it was much appreciated. Rooney Mara’s tough-girl-next-door black Nina Ricci offered glimpses of her skim milk torso, with its bondage-like chiffon cut outs. Glee’s Dianna Agron and Michele competed for squint-worthy exhibitionism with their laser-cut gowns, but neither quickened my pulse. When it came to jewels, oversized earrings stole the show. FYI: If the unemployment rate hovers at 8.5%, stars tend to wisely eschew the quail egg-sized diamonds and blinding ruby chokers. Then, there’s Madonna. The best original song in a motion picture winner wore $2.5 million worth of Neil Lane gems, including half a dozen diamond and platinum cuff bracelets. Material girl, indeed.

In the end, I say, “all hail Tilda Swinton.” The statuesque fashion-forward icon — with the arm span of a yeti — didn’t disappoint in an ice blue Haider Ackerman skirt suit with strong, sharp shoulders. The red carpet always seems to part for Swinton and she deserves it.

Here’s the list of who wore who: Read More »

Will More Directors Dabble In Marketing After JJ Abrams’ Hide-The-Creature Ploy Pays Off?

By | Monday June 13, 2011 @ 9:46am PDT
Mike Fleming

Super 8’s $37 million opening weekend was a surprise given last week’s soft tracking numbers that rival marketing execs attributed to JJ Abrams’ insistence on keeping plot reveals — and the creature — out of the TV spots. Those skeptics might argue Super 8 could have posted a larger opening weekend with a more revealing campaign, but it is nice to see a filmmaker — and the studio that backed him — vindicated in their decision to preserve the moviegoing experience by not dishing all the reveals. It’s too bad Abrams wasn’t advising disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner, who also would have benefited by fighting the temptation to unveil the creature. Read More »
