2014 Golden Globes: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Winning Style

13 Jan

Another awards with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the helm, in which they were sadly largely absent during the middle and where they pushed the envelope in a way that Ricky Gervais never could “And now, like a supermodel’s vagina, let’s all give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio.” There were a couple of moments that didn’t work in the opening monologue – the Captain Phillips gags are super questionable – but overall they did what we all hoped they would do and made us laugh a lot. Plus Amy Poehler finally won an award! This pretty much made my evening.

Amy and Tina red carpetFirst up the red carpet and Amy’s gone for Stella McCartney that turns the simple black gown on its head with asymmetric detail. This might be the best her hair has ever looked and that wry smile suggests that she knows this. Tina Fey has opted for a vibrant floral printed Carolina Herrera frock and voluminous hair and it’s only going to get bigger.

Amy and TinaThe pair pretty much wore the same colors from the opening monologue last year with Tina going for oxblood this time around – the beading on this dress is exquisite.

Tina and Amy drinkng Golden GlobesAnother change and updos and strapless dresses for both. By this point it was probably needed as the show had descended into rambling speech chaos. That’s the beauty of the Golden Globes – alcohol on the tables. Some nice shade throwing in Taylor Swift’s direction from Tina Fey as she congratulated Amy Poehler with “I just want to say congratulations again to my friend Amy Poehler, I love you and there’s a special place in hell for you.”

Amy Poehler winWhile we’re on the subject of Amy Poehler winning, here is that moment and I’m pretty sure it’s the happiest I’ve ever seen my Twitter feed on an awards night. It’s been a long time coming.

Watch Amy Poehler’s speech below.

Best of the 2014 Golden Globes Red Carpet

13 Jan

So the Golden Globes are over and Tina Fey summed it up best with this closing comment “This was the beautiful mess we hoped it would be.” Random winners and drunken speeches aside we’re going to take a look at our favorite red carpet looks from the TV ladies – and one movie star we can’t leave out. Here are TV Ate My Wardrobe’s top 10 picks for best gowns. There’s a special Tina Fey and Amy Poehler style post coming shortly.

Julianna MarguliesJulianna Margulies didn’t win for The Good Wife, but she looks incredible in this black Andrew Gn gown with a gold shoulder and hem print. The voluminous skirt and cinched in waist is dramatic without going full princess.

Elisabeth Moss Golden Globes

So happy Elisabeth Moss won for Top of the Lake and she did so in this stunning oxblood and black beaded J. Mendel dress. While there were mumblings that her hair is too messy for this event, the tousled chic works for me thanks to the shorter length. Bonus points for a bold lip color choice. Moss became my mani cam hero when she did what many have probably wanted to do and flipped it off.

Tatiana Maslany Golden GlobesLooking completely different from the many roles we see her in on Orphan Black, Tatiana Maslany’s award show debut is a style win in this beautifully beaded gown from Jenny Packham that exudes old Hollywood glamour.

Caitlin Fitzgerald Golden Globes

Masters of Sex’s Caitlin Fitzgerald balked at the usual nude/red/black trend with a high necked beautiful baby blue gown from Emilia Wickstead. This is how you emulate the decade your show is set in without looking like you’ve raided the costume department as it has 1950s sensibilities with a modern twist. I’m in love with the coral and baby blue strappy pumps also from Emilia Wickstead.

Lizzy Caplan Golden GlobesSpace played an important thematic role on Masters of Sex and there’s something retro-futuristic about Lizzy Caplan’s Emilio Pucci frock. The silver side column and neckline detail is super sexy as is switching up her usually straight hair for wavy locks.

Lupita Nyong'oLupita Nyong’o was one of the most anticipated red carpet arrivals, especially as what she was wearing leaked early and she didn’t disappoint. I’m a sucker for a cape at the best of times (six seasons and a movie) and this red Ralph Lauren number is spectacular. Shame she didn’t win for her performance in 12 Years a Slave.

Michelle Dockery Golden GlobesYesterday we heralded Michelle Dockery as the best dressed at the pre-Golden Globes celebrations and she didn’t use up all her good style points before the big event. Metallic nudes were a big trend with several Oscar de la Renta gowns reveling in this sparkly style. While I might have added a few accessories there is beauty in simplicity and this is another hit for the Downton Abbey star.

Zosia MametThis white Reem Acra gown with black floral detail is a big departure for Girls’ Zosia Mamet as she tends to favor the LBD (as we saw earlier this week) and the new bob is super cute. All she needs is red lipstick and this would be perfect.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Like Paul Rudd, Julia Louis-Dreyfus has made some kind of deal/has a painting in her attic and she looks incredible in this orange Narciso Rodriguez halter neck dress. She also provided some of the funniest moments from the night, most notably puffing on E cigarette as part of the opening monologue.

Olivia WildeRed carpet gowns and maternity wear don’t tend to cross paths; Olivia Wilde’s sparkly Gucci Première emerald gown is giving me Wizard of Oz feels and it’s wonderfully unexpected.
