Golden Globes Red Carpet to Street Style Looks for Less

The trends seen on the Golden Globes’ red carpet sets the stage for beauty and fashion in the new year. Lovers of fashion everywhere tune into the awards ceremony just to see what the celebrities are wearing. What’s in and what’s on its way out unfolds as the red carpet processional tells all. From color to cut, the fashion savvy are looking to spot trends, or what’s hot.

To discover style for everyday wear in 2014, Discover Card asked me to translate celebrity trends I spotted on the red carpet into a everyday head-to-toe ‘street style’ look for less, and share how I created the look on a budget. The looks I chose to put together are easy to wear and can be worn for special occasions. By the way, this was a fun project! -Here we go.

Red Carpet to Street Style Translation- Jennifer Lawrence’s white and black Dior gown.

I know, either you love it or you hate it. The gown has been referred to as angelic while others continue to poke fun saying it is reminiscent of Ariel’s DIY sheet dress from “The Little Mermaid”. I chose this dress because it speaks to the return of the black and white trend as seen on the runway early last spring. Like a lot of stars, Jennifer went with dark lips and silver accented jewelry. Short and sleek hair was also popular on the red carpet.

Red Carpet to Street Style Translation- Cate Blanchett’s black lace Armani Prive gown.

I gasped when I saw this one. Cate’s black lace Armani Prive gown is breathtaking. It was truly one of my favorites this year, and I think it’s a trendsetter for what they are calling regal glamour. With this dress, I would’ve accessorized with gold but her faux bob shows off silver jewelry again, but with sustainable and ethically sourced “green” diamonds. As with many celebs, crimson colored lipstick finished Cate’s look.

Additional trends spotted: I saw interesting color-blocking, black, red, metallics in gold and silver, floral and some really bright colors. Cuts included strapless sweethearts, deep v-necks, and slits up to where? Also it looks like hi-low hemlines are on the way out. Honestly, I didn’t like the cut on the red carpet this time around. So, where do you get your looks for less?

My shoes on the red carpet of the Golden Globes. How fun…! Right?
