The best of Golden Globes fashion

In a city as stylish as Chicago, it’s no secret that we Chicagoans care about our clothing.

Every jaunt down Fullerton resembles a strut down the catwalk as young women are decked out in the latest trends.

So, of course, The DePaulia tuned in to critique and fawn over the latest fashions at the Golden Globes on Sunday. Here are the highlights.


Zooey Deschanel’s nails

Hollywood’s favorite quirky girl showed no restraint last Sunday night. She proudly flaunted her carefully painted “tuxedo nails.”

They proved to be the most unique accessory and matched her personality perfectly. The newly single “New Girl” star wore vintage Prada and debuted a shorter hairstyle, as well.

What a perfect way to begin a year already full of change for the young starlet.


Emma Stone in Lanvin

Emma Stone was the spitting image of perfection.

Her deep crimson dress with its flawless shoulder embroidery, her effortless up-do, and her smoky eyes made her standout from the crowd of diamonds and nude tones.

Choosing to accessorize with a black leather belt adorned with a silver-and-diamond eagle solidified her status as on of the “Best Dressed” at the Globes.

The 23 year-old was the definition of red carpet stunning last Sunday night.


Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

To no surprise, Brad and Angie were one of the best-dressed couples at the Globes. Donning a champagne Versace gown with an unexpected red collar, Angie looked effervescent next to her partner Brad Pitt, who was forced to walk with a cane due to a prior injury.

Both nominees effortlessly maintained their hard-earned definition of a power couple and reminded the world why we all think they’re just so beautiful.


Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon resembled an old Hollywood screen siren in her Zac Posen gown and wild blonde mane.

The deep red gown complimented her pale skin tone perfectly, and her choice for natural makeup allowed the dress to steal the show.

Her tousled locks showcased her laid-back personality and kept the ensemble from being too fussy. Reese was an unexpected front-runner for best dressed.



There’s plenty left to be desired of Madonna’s ensemble.

With a black cross, fingerless gloves and a poorly tailored gown, Madonna did not resemble the fashion icon that she once was…but Madonna did gain victory elsewhere.

After being jibed by Globes host Ricky Gervais, the “Queen of Pop” took a few hits back and gave him a piece of her mind. She also won a Globe for Best Original Song with her composition “Masterpiece.”
