Today’s post is the beginning of a series, which aims to hypothesise what various well-knowns and followeds might wear from the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection.
On Sunday 11th January, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association held their annual Golden Globes. The first event in the awards calendar which sees unbridled glamour unleashed. This year’s ceremony was no exception, with the film and television world’s major style players exhibiting some enchanting looks. Whilst fine jewellery abounded from the likes of Tiffany and Fred Leighton, I couldn’t help but think about how pieces from Gemma Redmond Vintage might compliment the aesthetic of these red carpet heroines.
Take a look below at some of the night’s sensations…
In my opinion, the night’s best dressed was Allison Williams. Her lipstick red, embellished Armani Prive gown was just the right combination of eclectic detailing and classic lines. Her stylist Christina Ehrlich selected a marvel from the red carpet rails.
As for her choice from Gemma Redmond Vintage, these 1980s Christian Dior ruby rhinestone earrings would look perfect with the scarlet hues of her gown.
Lupita Nyong’o made yet another successful sartorial decision – a purple and Ivory Giambattista Valli gown. Her stylist, Michaela Erlanger, selected a pair of lilac Chopard drop earrings, adding a graceful, not fussy, jewellery accent. If she were to select costume, in place of fine jewels, Lupita might have opted for for this stunning pair of 1980s Balenciaga Le Dix earrings. Their purple tones and extra long length would add a whimsical, yet complimentary, touch.
In keeping with tradition, Jennifer Lopez wowed. Her Zuhair Murad gown did all of the talking and its impact was furthered by Lorraine Schwartz jewels. The dove grey and cream hues in this 1970s Christian Dior ring match her gown’s colour way and are subtle enough to ensure that Jennifer’s look is not over done.
Forever a fan of luxe hippie chic, Sienna Miller opted for a plunging Miu Miu look embroidered with floral motifs. This 1950s five row diamanté bracelet is an ideal match for the trim of the deep V in her gown.
Two stars embracing the couture trend for delicately embellishing fabric with feathers were Claire Danes and Keira Knightly. The patterns on Danes’ Givenchy dress were given a luminous quality by Ricardo Tisci’s skilled use of plumage and the butterflies on Knightly’s dress were brought to dainty, three dimensional life with quills by Chanel’s atelier dwelling experts. The mini beast theme of Knightly’s ensemble would lend itself perfectly to Kenneth Jay Lane’s 1960s ‘Scarab’ brooch. Whilst, the feather theme of Dane’s gown would work well with a pair of 1980s YSL ‘Wing’ earrings.
Emma Stone and Kerry Washington can always be relied upon to provide fresh, fashion-forward looks on the Red Carpet. They, and their respective stylists (Petra Flannery and Erin Walsh), did not fail to disappoint. Stone, in her glamorous Lanvin jumpsuit, might have chosen a 1920s glass bead necklace in hues to compliment her look. Washington, in Mary Katrantzou, might have gravitated towards a 1950s diamante flower necklace, again in matching tones.
