Ever wonder what the key fashion trends are? I know that colors are a big deal and while everyone loves Pantone, not every Pantone color announced for a season will work on everybody. It’s about being selective to find the colors that really work for you. Those same colors that work for you will also help you choose specific tones in other trends like those for handbags, jewelry and shoes.
One way to find out what colors are hot and what trends are hot is to watch various red carpet events because you are going to see so many walk the red carpet. Sometimes it’s a favorite actress wearing a phenomenal dress but maybe you wonder why is she not glowing or radiant. Or maybe it’s the style of the dress that is not quite her but you noted that she still looks great. Why is that? It’s the color.
Jill Kirsh of JillKirshColor.com is no stranger to this blog. Jill and I are old friends since she schooled me in the art of finding the right colors for me based on my hair color. (You can do it too!) I was planning on calling Jill to get her insights on the Golden Globes 2017 red carpet ” Fashion Do’s and Don’ts”. It was no surprise to me to see that Jill was featured on the E! Entertainment blog in a post about how color can take you from OK to Amazing by tweaking the color of the dress! You can find that post at E! Entertainment Blog HERE . I was not surprised at the changes that color can create. The people Jill featured were exactly the women whose dresses I would have said needed to be changed!!
When I did leave Jill a message, we connected and I got her Golden Globes Favorites– those women who KILLED it on the red carpet.
Trend: Yellow works if it’s a great color for you!
3 actresses found the perfect yellow for them.
Reese Witherspoon looks fabulous in this buttery yellow dress. It’s perfect with her light golden blonde hair! It’s a color that is frequently worn by her.
Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones wears this gorgeous dress with a fair amount of skin but a great yellow that works with her warm brown hair.
Viola Davis shows us that yellow can be worn if you pick the right shade for you. She’s been seen in yellow before along with other bright tones that work fabulously well with her great skintone and her hair color!
Three different shades of yellow. Each woman looks fabulous and rocks it well!
Brie Larson went for bright red in this gorgeous Rodarte gown. It lights up her face and works perfectly with her hair and her style. She looks phenomenal!
Metallics were huge on the red carpet! So many wore them and really did it right. Here are a few that Jill and I both liked.
Ruth Negga shows that you don’t have to wear gold but can work this gorgeous charcoal pewter to great effect with her dark hair. This dress shows very little skin but the fit of it hits her curves in all the right places. (custom-made for her by Louis Vuitton) It shows that sometimes wearing more (and not less) gets more attention!
Priyanka Chopra wowed everyone at the Golden Globes in this custom gold, embroidered, plunge-front dress from Ralph Lauren.
