There’s plenty of discussion on the web about Golden Globes fashion, and while there were some nice looks, nothing knocked me out (although I wholeheartedly agree with Sara Cornell’s Helen Mirren accolades— Love her!).
Overall, color was trending, particularly purple and green, along with bridal looks, metallic accents, and a whole lot of reliably flattering mermaid silhouettes. Not without merit, but I’ve seen it before. In fact, many of these trends have been cycling (and recycling) for the past few years. Maybe we’re in a red-carpet rut…
I was very excited by a beauty trend, though. Many women were sporting some version of Rita Hayworth hair:
Long, soft waves with a committed side part. Looks effortlessly pretty and polished at the same time. Check it out:
They all wear it well– a good reminder that simple styling can be your best friend in a formalwear situation. Another interesting point is that all of these women are over 40. Now, the idea that women over 40 should NEVER wear their hair long is about as relevant as a Virginia Slim, but savvy over-40 fashionistas know that long hair can be tricky. Get it wrong and you could end up looking very Real Housewives or– even worse —sister wives.
So what do you think? Do you like this look on the red carpet or do you prefer more structured ‘dos? And how do you feel about long hair vs. short hair as you (oh-so-gracefully) age?
