All Aboard the Red Carpet!

The Golden Globe Awards take place this Sunday heralding the start of awards season when celebrities will be out in force on the red carpet in their best evening wear. I love seeing the photographs from the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the Cannes Film Festival and the rest. It’s fantasy dressing at its finest. I also love the Fug Girls‘ analysis of awards season every year, ever hilarious and brilliantly written.

In anticipation of awards season 2013 I have chosen my favourite red carpet looks of all time below. Christina Ricci’s Givenchy gown is hands-down the dress of my dreams! Who can forget Angelina Jolie (who usually relies on her stunning face to make an impact and forgets about her clothes) pulling out all the stops in the Versace gown below? Vanessa Paradis in vintage Chanel was total perfection, and I love the colour of Drew Barrymore’s Dior dress (which, along with her cute and quirky hair, was widely panned on the night). Any glaring omissions in your opinion? Who wins your award for best dressed?
