They did it for real. Celebrities attending the 75th Golden Globes Awards last Sunday night all wore the same colour, black. A symbolic gesture against the sexual harassment suffered by many actresses in Hollywood which has been making headlines in recent months and that stood out on the red carpet marking a new type of femininity, more aware, supportive and committed to change things in the future.
Clean cuts for dresses and minimal beauty looks ruled but also refinement and sensual, almost defiant accents.
Jessica Chastain amazes photographers enveloped in a sleek velvet dress by Armani Privé and with her wavy, signature red hair. Same hairstyle for Margot Robbie dressed in a Gucci dress with contrasting decorations and plunging neckline.
Also Dakota Johnson chose Gucci to walk the red carpet, focusing on a dress full of sparkling appliqués on the back and a train, combined with a casual appeal ponytail. A winning contrast similarly adopted by Kendall Jenner who combines a messy hairstyle with a sumptuous gown in large volumes by Giambattista Valli Haute Couture, and Jessica Biel that plays down her Dior Haute Couture princess-like dress with a simple and elegant low ponytail.
Embroidery and transparencies are instead the strengths of actresses like Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman and Diane Kruger. Angelina, in Atelier Versace, chooses the opulence of feathers. Nicole, in Givenchy, opts for the preciousness of lace. While Diane reveals the most impalpable tulle illuminated with polka dots and jeweled profiles by Prada.
A minimalist direction for Saoirse Ronan, winner of a Golden Globe for Lady Bird, with a black and silver asymmetric dress by Atelier Versace and a trompe l’oeil, short effect hair-do.
Zoe Kravitz and Kate Hudson showed off true short hair. The first fully exalting it thanks to the combination with a total black gown by Saint Laurent, the other, playing with a thin headband and a sheer chiffon, diamond patterned dress with visible lingerie and plunging neckline.
And if Alicia Vikander chooses the rigorous charm of an embroidered backless dress by Louis Vuitton, the young protagonist of Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown, astounds everybody with a bun enriched with braids and a voluminous and vaguely retro short dress by Calvin Klein by Appointment.
