Many have weighed in on the best and worst dressed at last Sunday's Golden Globe Awards...from Cosmopolitan magazine to CNN. There were a lot of lovely gowns this year--far more hits than misses--with Angelina Jolie, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Beckinsale, and some of the ladies shown here at the top of my list.
But of course I am always looking at today's style from a much different perspective...always amazed at the incredible influence that Old Hollywood costume design continues to have over mainstream fashion. In the case of the Golden Globes, I couldn't believe how many of the gowns took their inspiration from the femmes fatale of film noir. Incredible timing, really, considering that I'm doing a focus on its very style this month on GlamAmor. Take a look for yourself at some of the similarities in the gorgeous gowns created now and then.
