70s revival and a lot of pink

Golden Globes 2011 brought pleasant surprises both awards and fashion wise. Pink is a favorite color for the upcoming season and that was seen on the red carpet. Reddish hue “honeysuckle” seen on Lanvin gown worn by actress Julianne Moore is already nominated as it-color of the season; also lighter pink shades such as pale salmon, coral and ethereal "silver-peony" are also very fashionable.

Best styling for pink color is an understated feminine look like these column dresses here with soft draping or a straight/body-conscious tailoring. Leave it to the masters of minimalist sophistication Alber Elbaz from Lanvin and Francisco Costa from Calvin Klein to make this color look ultra stylish.

The styles of 1970s inspired most collections for spring 2011 and it’s great to see the comeback of this dazzling era on the red-carpet.

Most striking were the long-sleeved sequin-adorned gowns though my favorite were the subtle-bejeweled romantic dresses with flutter kimono sleeves and the empire-waist daisy-embroidered Valentino gown seen on actress Michelle Williams evoking a young fashion-icon Mia Farrow.

As for the “comeback of the season”, one-shoulder gowns with extravagant pleats and frills still manage to daze the audience with their glamorous look.

And last, maybe not the best looks seen on the red carpet at the Golden Globes ceremony, these dresses enchant me for bringing into the present the alluring elegance of my favorite eras “the roaring 20s” and the glamorous 1930s.
