Not only does the beginning of year bring us fresh starts and new beginnings it always brings us pure unadulterated FASHION!!! Awards season is in full swing starting with the 2017 Golden Globes! We all sat on our couches staring at our TV’s to see what celebrities had to offer us and believe us we were NOT disappointed! Here are some of our favorites.
Naomi kept the accessories simple and let the dress speak for itself. She never disappoints the EGL Fashion team and last night was no different.
Viola Davis (photographed with her husband, Julius Tennon) stunned us in this Michael Kors yellow one shoulder gown. Viola wasn’t afraid of a bright color against her amazing skin. She, like Naomi, let the dress shine and accessorized her dress with an elegant clutch.
Breakout star of 2016, Issa Rae, proves that being fully covered is just as sexy as wearing a barely there dress. Issa exuded pure serenity in this white long-sleeved gown by Christian Siriano gown with a matching white clutch. Her up-do along with chandelier earrings topped off the look.
Tracee Ellis Ross
History maker and fashion slayer-the one and only Tracee Ellis Ross brought us to our knees last night. Rocking a Zuhair Murad Couture cage dress, Christian Louboutin pumps and two hands full of BLING rings- she simply did no wrong last night! She chose to leave her neck bare but let her hands do all the talking. We are not mad at this look at all!!! You could hear the EGL Fashion Team screaming at our television screens! YASSS!!!
Red carpet veteran, Kerry Washington awed in this gold Dolce & Gabbana gilded dress with strappy Sophia Webster heels. Kerry and her fashion team rarely (if ever) make any mistakes when it comes to red carpets and other appearance. We demand much of Kerry in the fashion community and she makes us proud every time!
Janelle absolutely floored us in this custom Armani Privé dress. Who would have thought polka dots and sequin would make an appearance on the red carpet in 2017? Her modern day version of the beehive and her finger laced in Forevermark jewelry finished off this angelic look.
While some thought Karrueche missed this mark in this stunning Dolce & Gabbana satin number, we beg to differ. She followed the trend of keeping her hair in a simple top knot; her neckline was bare which allowed her dress to stun us. We love the simplicity of Karrueche’s look. After all she was a correspondent and there to work. Karrueche, you definitely get a thumbs up from us!
No stranger to fashion (I mean who can forget his infamous hat) Pharrell Williams was happy to tell the correspondent who he was wearing “This is the 2012 Bombay collection by Chanel”. The never aging Pharrell was suited and booted in Chanel and wore it with pride. Pharrell was accompanied by his beautiful wife, Helen Lasichanh, also rocking Chanel.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
In our eyes, the couple that slays together stays together. If this is true Chrissy and John are going to be together FOREVVAAA! Chrissy opted for a gold with grey undertone Marchesa gown with a high neck, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and simple ponytail. John complimented her in head-to-toe Gucci. This couple got it RIGHT.
EGL loved watching the red carpet!! We would love to know what you thought of last night’s hits on the red carpet! Who was the winner of the night and who could have simply tried again?
