Awards season kicked off on Sunday, January 8 with the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards. This year I was stunned at how many amazing red carpet looks I fell in love with. Last night’s looks ranged from sexy and princess-like, to modern tuxedo suits and elegant fitted silhouettes.
Here are my favorite looks of the night and the designers they wore.
Mandy Moore in Naeem Khan
Ruth Negga in Louis Vuitton
Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham
Trends of the night included plunging necklines and women who weren’t afraid to wear suits. I absolutely adored Mandy Moore‘s Naeem Khan cape dress, she looked angelic. Ruth Negga has become one of my favorites and that shimmering Louis Vuitton dress was like liquid gold! I personally believe that Kristen Bell and her Jenny Packham dress deserved way more attention!

After a successful performance in the indie film Filly Brown, Gina Rodriguez was determined to take Hollywood by storm. Her starring role in the CW’s Golden Globe nominated series Jane The Virgin, did just that. Her innocent yet feisty character captured America’s heart. It goes without saying, she’s now a household name.
She’s currently working on a film with Mark Wahlberg and getting ready for the second season of Jane The Virgin. I had the opportunity to chat with Gina about her new movie Deepwater Horizon, her role models and her obsession with boxing.
How did winning a Golden Globe change your life?
It’s pretty freaking awesome and super. There are no words. There’s that feeling of gratitude, love, [feeling] blessed and being freaking stoked about everything. Now, I’m doing a movie in New Orleans. It’s outrageous! I’m boxing everyday. It’s so fulfilling. This is what I had dreamt of 15 years ago when I was a teenager. It’s wild.
Tell us about your character in Deepwater Horizon.
In Deepwater Horizon, I play a Latina from San Diego. I feel very honored to play her. The story centers on a devastating explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. Working with Peter Berg has been outstanding, he is somebody I’ve always desired to work with. He is a genius, hands down. He teaches you to let go and just jump into your role while he provides the parachute. And I am having a blast working with so many male actors, Kurt Russell, Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich and Dylan O’Brian.
