“Do you like it?” Emma Stone said in a Lanvin jumpsuit after E!’s glam cam panned up from her shoes to her crystal beaded and black jumpsuit, allowing viewers to judge.
The red carpet at the Golden Globes was packed with celebs dressed to the nines, all vying to be crowned best dressed of the night. Velvet tuxes and gowns sashayed up and down the carpet as paparazzi snapped away, shouting names and directions. There were stands filled with fans watching the red carpet cheering as if they were at a football game. Despite all the glitz and glam that comes with rolling the red carpet out, it was boring.
“Who are you wearing?” asked E! Live at the Red Carpet co-host Ryan Secreast to various celebrities like Rosamund Pike, in Vera Wang; Amy Adams, in Versace; Lena Dunham, in Zac Posen (as she does for most events) ; Emily Blunt, in custom Michael Kors; Julianne Moore, in custom Givenchy (sparkles and feathers, likeable but how unimaginative) and Juilianna Margulies, in custom Ulyana Sergeenko. Eh.
The whole red carpet felt off tonight, perhaps because of the lack of colorful fashion commentator Joan Rivers. As per usual, celebrities acted as if they weren’t clenched with tension while air kissing each other and waving to the cameras. The red carpet demands perfection from head to toe. There was no escape from the judging eye of the camera between the hordes of paparazzi screaming and E! Live at the Red Carpet, who had dispatched over 20 cameras on the red carpet with names like the mani cam, the glam cam, the limo cam and the glam cam 360.
The 72nd annual Golden Globes were hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for the third time and was attended by the most famous actors and actresses in Hollywood. Sponsored by the Hollywood Foreign Press, the Globes kicked off the 2015 award show circus in its usual crazy fashion.
“The red carpet is not something I look forward to,” said actress Jessica Chastain, in Atelier Versace, to Secreast. For two hours movie stars and TV stars mingled and sashayed the carpet and performed for the cameras.
“This is kind of like a theme park,” Keira Knightly, in Chanel, said to Seacrest crinkling her nose, “Only because so many people are screaming.”
It might have been a zoo in reality, but on camera one of the most glamorous nights of the year, had never looked duller.
