There was RED and there was BLUE but if you are a bride-to-be or a mother of the bride-to-be well, you were in luck last night because “bridal” was certainly trending on the red carpet at the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards. From the Modern to the flat of Matronly,  there certainly was something for everyone so feel free to draw your inspiration from what you saw on display. In a sea of statement gowns and sleek dresses, the wedding gown look as seen above stood out (we’re sure Vera Wang would be so proud) as a clear trend and while we loved some and turned our faces away at the others we can honestly conclude that last night saw some of the best fashion displays on red carpet in a very long time. Well done ladies.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank everybody who joined us LIVE via Twitter last night for making it such a memorable night of lively fashion commentary and discussion. A special thanks for our friends @zimbio, @Polyvore ,@DImageBoutique & @KMartFashion

Also thank you to @dkny‘s PR Girl who tweeted us this message:

I Hate to Flag a Fashionista so early in the New Year but Mariah Carey’s Aspen Sidewalk Style Begs the Question…

FASHION QUERY↓

All the pictures featured in this fashion query were snapped outside the Joan Boyce Jewelry store (which is owned by the singer’s mother) during the holiday season and for what it’s worth, the new mum did look in high spirits as she happily posed each night for the paparazzi.

This jumpsuit would have been a winner had it not been for the super high waist belted look which seemed to create the illusion of a shorter torso on the leggy blonde. I love you Mariah but this look is a no-no.

I actually liked the above look for Mariah, no one can go wrong in all-black right? Wrong. If you throw on a pair of statement black suede boots, a statement black scarf with sequin accents, a black little black dress over leggings topped off with a statement puffy vest… Yeah, that might be a bit much, even on a diva.

ALL HOPE IS NOT LOST ↓

Ms. Carey (ahem…Mrs. Cannon) managed to “WOW!” me when she stepped out in what looked like a black cat-suit topped with a belted poncho coat and chocolate coloured knee-high boots. Tres Bien, Mariah…more looks like this, please.

Deciphering Salma Hayek’s YSL Look at the ‘Puss In Boots’ London Premiere + How You Can Dress Like Her (If You Want To)

Yay or Nay?

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

1. The Trousers(pants) are too long.

2. There is bunching in all the wrong places.

3. Styled wrong (the hat throws the whole outfit off and the gold clutch looks like it belongs with an evening gown and not this suit).

4. What is that scarf doing there? Oh! No wait….it’s a halter top underneath a waist-coat. WOW! 😯

5. Salma Hayek who is obviously a beautiful petite woman looked like she was drowning in fabric on that red carpet. We know it’s cold in London this time of the year but seriously, how many minutes was she going to spend on that red carpet posing for pictures?

Fashion Query: Kim Kardashian – What Was She Thinking???

HOUNDSTOOTH FAIL?

After excelling herself so well this week with her New York City Sidewalk Style, what could Kim Kardashian have been thinking by donning this over-the-top ghastly looking houndstooth poncho ensemble? It looks like maternity wear gone awry? Is Kim K trying to fan the flames of  a ‘pregnancy rumour’ ahead of the tabloids? She topped off her look with a charcoal birkin and black Christian Louboutin knee-high heels but any way you slice it, this look is still a no.

Fashion Query: What is up with Beyonce and her Mini Maternity Wear?

Sasha

is fierce but Fashionwidget is officially joining the bandwagon of those who would like to see Ms. Fierce incorporate long and flowing gowns into her maternity wardrobe. Late last month when Beyonce announced her pregnancy to the world, she wore this gorgeous tailored-to-fit-her-baby-bump floor length Lanvin gown…

August 28th

but ever since then and for reasons only known to the fierce one, she has been showing up at events and/or has been photographed on the sidewalks and streets of New York City dressed in one unflattering mini thing or the other.

EXHIBIT A

Beyonce, we get it, you can still work those heels and your legs…forces to be reckoned with for sure but please stock up on some lovely long fluid with flattering silhouette gowns.

THIS WAS GORGEOUS

Fergie

BEST “COSTUME” ON THE RED CARPET↓

Tyra Banks

MOST IMPROVED STYLE↓

Raven-Symone

BEST USE OF COLOUR-CONTRASTING

Destinee Monroe and Paris Monroe

AND LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST, FASHIONWIDGET’S ‘FASHION-QUERY AWARD’ FOR THE MOST CONFUSING FASHION STATEMENTS ON THE BLUE CARPET GOES TO…↓

Kat Graham

Selena Gomez

Selena gets major brownie points for colour-blocking so nicely here but that sheet that is hanging of the side of her dress (looking like a trail of toilet paper stuck to her by accident from a recent visit to the ladies room) really threw me off. As for the usually stylish Kat Graham, she looks as if she lost a battle with a shredder on her way to the award show. Her dress is so busy, did her shoes also have to be?
