Last night was the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, and one of the hottest nights of celebration in Hollywood. Hosted again by the ever-hilarious Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the dynamic duo kicked off the show to a sensational start. Check out the opening monologue,  because it’s well-worth the 10 minutes it takes to watch it if you haven’t already.

The lovely ladies did not shy away from taking jabs here and there at their celebrity counterparts, especially at the expense of Bill Cosby, which seemed to receive a mixture of laughter and overall shock.

But beyond the amusing anecdotes from the gal hosts, there were also a few major highlights for us here at The Orchid Boutique — the fashion!

The Golden Globe Awards pulls out some of the hottest fashion trends which surely transpire throughout the rest of Hollywood’s award season. We can’t help but become enamored with the designer gowns and dresses, much like we swoon over the designer swimwear collections every year.

So, here we go rattling off our favorite Golden Globe lady looks from last night’s show.

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

Jennifer Lopez, Golden Globes

Let’s be honest, homegirl is in her 40’s and still looking chic as ever.

 

Emma Stone in Lanvin

We’re diggin’ this tomboy chic look from Emma Stone. It’s a simple style that gets glammed up with a side bow. Tres cute.

 

Kate Hudson in Versace

I’m sure by now you know we are HUGE fans of the caged bikini trend. So it’s no surprise that we’re diggin’ this ultra sexy look from Kate Hudson. Sexy + Elegant = Ultimate Win.

Reese Witherspoon in Calvin Klein

Reese Witherspoon always kills it every award show. She doesn’t take huge risks, which can be frustrating from a fan standpoint, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t deliver time and time again. Silver seems to be the style color of the evening, and she does the metallic look flawlessly.

Anna Kendrick in Monique Lhullier

This might be my favorite look of the night. The colors are sensational with her skin tone, and the pattern work in the design is effortlessly cool.

 

Lupita Nyong’o in Giambattista Valli Couture

Another trend, like we saw above, is the tapering off of design work toward the lower hem. It draws the eyes downward to the overflowing fabric. And when paired with killer colors like Lupita, it’s a win-win.

Chrissy Teigen in Zuhair Murad

I LOVE THIS DRESS. Teigen is a stunner with this Bohemian-esque dress. We take price in our ethnic print swimwear, which is why this dress seems to encompass that trend furthermore. We’ve always been fans of Teigen’s, and she pulls off this dress in a crazy cool way.

 

Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen

The accessories in this ensemble are to die. Just look closely at that clutch. HOW COOL. Paired with those jewels and belt? Hayek nails the look.

 

Ellie Kemper

Similar to Teigen, these Aztec designs surely hit the trend mark. Not to mention the see-through neckline adds a bit more sophistication to the mix.

 

Dakota Johnson

It took me a few seconds to fall in love with this dress. To quote John Green, “it was slow, and then all at once”. This 50 Shades of Gray star nails that sexy-cool vibe in a way that makes us super excited for her new movie.

 

Kelly Osbourne in Edition by Georges Chakra

I’m not super stoked about her hair with this dress, I’ll be honest. But the dress alone — amazing. Seamless and stylish, Osbourne is no rookie when it comes to award show red carpets. But also, that clutch though.

Frances O’Connor

The lace bodice is totally doing it for me. Pair that with the simple elegance of all black err-thing, you have a win in my book.

 

Now let’s get down to brass tax and talk about those gorgeous guys at the Golden Globes. Some of you may wonder how much a tux can really differ from one dude to the next, but let me tell you, tuxes vary in multiple ways. Tailoring is key for the right tux, plus will you be going bow-tie or no tie? Lapel? Pocket square? Come on people!

Take a list of our best dressed men from last night’s show.

Matt Bomer in Ralph Lauren Black Label

Matt Bomer, Golden Globes

John Legend

Jeremy Renner

The best fitting tux of the night.

Overall the Golden Globes were filled with fun fashion and high style stakes. Keep an eye out this award season for some similar trends to continue.
