Golden Globes Fashion: The Top 10 Shoes
From Stella McCartney platforms to Louboutin stilettos, the stars stepped out in their fanciest footwear for Sunday's show.
Fierce footwear showed up in some unexpected places tonight at the Golden Globes. While all eyes were on the gorgeous gowns and fancy pants, there were some serious fashion-forward moves below the ankle.
We heart Kruger’s sartorial style and tonight was no exception. Going sans stylist, she hit the mark once again in a stunning silvery gown from Emilia Wickstead that virtually dripped off her body. Her dress designer is said to be a favorite of Kate Middleton and we can see why. Taking her ensemble to the next level, Kruger wore a pair of Brian Atwood blush suede “Karin” 6-inch, ankle-strapped platform heels. It's not your usual red-carpet combination, but it certainly elevates the look both literally and figuratively. If ever there were a way to assert your style dominance without saying a word, these are the shoes to do it.
As Jane Fonda, along with Lily Tomlin, presented the best actor in a TV comedy or musical award to Transparent's Jeffrey Tambor, we couldn't help but pay attention to Fonda’s feet. She wore a pair of chic Jimmy Choo kitten-heeled "Aza" pumps in snakeskin glitter with a metallic mirrored heel. Pairing a red Versace off-the-shoulder dress with glittery shoes? She’s a woman who proves style after 70 can stand toe-to-toe with the best on the red carpet.
Host of E!'s Live From the Red Carpet, Giuliana Rancic, sported some exceptionally fierce Tom Ford cream, ankle-strapped stilettos with collar detailing and a gold mirror metallic chainlink stiletto heel. She showed off these stunners preshow, lifting up her dress to the camera for maximum effect. As the only one to wear Tom Ford shoes on the carpet at the Globes this year, the style was quite edgy for this fashionista. Rancic shared, "They were a perfect conversation piece for the carpet. The gold chainlink heel was a perfect balance with the insanely sparkling Forevermark Diamonds I wore!" Her stylist, Monica Rose, concurred, “These Tom Ford shoes were the perfect last-minute touch to complete Giuliana's look.”
Lena Dunham usually causes a love-it-or-hate-it furor with her looks on the red carpet, but tonight was quite tame for her. A simple, classic red Zac Posen satin boat-neck gown was paired with classic Manolo Blahniks — the only Blahnik sighting on Sunday's carpet. The matte red leather heels were a loafer style, boasting a pointy toe, with curled leather detailing on the toe box. We’d say it’s a woman who has become truly comfortable in her own shoes.
Jill Soloway, creator, director and writer of winning series Transparent, took to the stage in a suit and black leather and wood Stella McCartney platforms with white rubber soles. As the first win for Amazon studios, and at the helm of a series that Soloway called "a movement," these shoes were doing some serious talking.
Alan Cumming donned Christian Louboutin “Mika on Stage” high-top sneakers with a monochromatic all-blush head-to-toe tux and trim for an incredibly distinctive, standout look among the male nominees. Cognac suede with black leather trim, golden mirror eyelets and cream rubber soles couldn’t have spoken louder from this Broadway star. To us, it says, "I am a true iconoclast — just look down for proof."
Kerry Washington was a standout in Mary Katrantzou and Christian Louboutin “Miss Rigidaine” heels. These almost 5-inch stilettos are a favorite of Washington, who has worn them on repeated occasions. These shoes — featuring a slender dagger stiletto heel, black patent leather and a severe cutout D’orsay silhouette trimmed in clear raspberry PVC — are not for the fainthearted fashionista.
Naomi Watts sported silver metallic single-strap custom-made Giuseppe Zanotti platform sandals with cross-ankle strap under her yellow Gucci column dress. Pairing limonata yellow with a silver shoe is quite a bold move for Watts, who is taking some more footwear risks these days and stepping out in higher, stronger silhouettes of late. Could she be moving into a new fashion phase? We can’t wait to see what’s next.
Best original song nominee Patti Smith showed up in signature Smith style, sporting Belgian icon Ann Demeulemeester’s combat boots with an all-black ensemble, pants tucked into her boots. When it comes to defining one's personal style, Smith owns her looks, and these boots are a testament to that.
Jemima Kirke stunned in a Rosie Assoulin ensemble and paired it with handmade-in-Italy Malone Souliers “Haji” soft terracotta suede stilettos with a navy braided and tasseled tie. Kirke's latest shoe pick has an underlying elegant element to it, and may just be her best choice yet.
