The Golden Globes 2012 took place last night, something that our Blue Banana fashion team always like to take notice of. The furore over Golden Globes dresses is something that always causes a big fuss, and our fashion experts are always glued to the television. While the style is a bit more Hollywood than most of us like, our alternative dresses selection is influenced by higher end fashion. In fact, we’re already ahead of the game when it comes to some of the Golden Globes fashion trends we saw this year. For instance, strapless dresses were a big hit on the red carpet and we’ve already got a great selection to choose from, of course with a BB twist. And while we don’t do understated, the stars at the Golden Globes 2012 certainly loved that too.
Alternative Golden Globes-Inspired Dresses
One of our favourite dresses from the Golden Globes this year was worn by Rooney Mara, star of the recent film Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. A fan of the gothic look, she really pulled it off with a floor length black dress. If you’re looking for something similar for an upcoming party, the Hell Bunny LA Vintage dress or the Blacklist Kitty dress are more practical alternatives while still sticking to Rooney’s favoured Golden Globes fashion. Of course to go with the perfect dress you’ll need stunning make up, particularly focusing on the eyes. Our eye make up & cosmetics range will allow you to create that dark, seductive, smoky eyed look that has been all the rage this year.
Be a Star in 2012 with Hollywood Fashion
While the Golden Globes 2012 were generally about understated looks, there were some A-listers that went for full-on alternative. Now we’re not suggesting you go out there and buy Golden Globes dresses like Madonna or Sarah Michelle Gellar – that would just be crazy talk! However, we are the King and Queen of alternative so if you want something a bit different to help you stand out then that is not a problem. For stand out prints, a Hell Bunny dress is always a certain red carpet winner and they don’t come at Hollywood prices. And if you want to guarantee all eyes and cameras will be on you, mix it up with something from our alternative skirts range and team it with a cute top. Get inspired by the Golden Globes and team it with a Blue Banana twist.
