The 2017 Awards Show Fashion Train; First Stop - Golden Globes

Via Forbes

Awards show fashion is all kinds of awesome.  It gives us HEAPS of food for thought when we translate those looks into real life and dissect elements that speak to us that could work perfectly in the wedding arena! There were a lot of dresses and tuxedos (THANK YOU Octavia Spencer, Kathryn Hahn and Evan Rachel Wood for fronting like BOSSES in theirs!) on the red carpet that showcased some of the big trends for 2017, which translates into some solid ideas for your wedding and reception. Ready? Let's do this!

Precious Metals and Sequins

Red Carpet: A bevy of tones from rose gold to silver, found head to toe or in stunning accents. And sequins came to SLAY! They were colourful and they were magic.
Real Life: Any way you want! Whether you have your bridesmaids in metallic dresses, or you feature  a metal in your colour theme, a little goes a long way! Same deal with sequins- think sequinned embellishments on table dressings or in backdrops. Perfect in places like shoes or purses, but STUNNING in dresses.

The New Romantics

Red Carpet: Ultra-feminine, with stunning  details. Dreamy colours that are flattering and swoon-worthy.
Real Life: Adding a little bit of romanticism into your colour theme; choosing a softer silhouette for either wedding dress or bridesmaids dresses.

 Not-So-Mellow Yellow

Red Carpet: Head-to-toe Vitamin D, there were a handful of yellow dresses, but did they ever stand  out and make an impact. Viola Davis made my life with the sequins!
Real Life: I haven't been a huge fan of yellow before but lately, I've been feeling it!  I think that the yellow can translate to fearlessness; go ahead and use yellow or any bright colours you want, whether it's flowers, accessories, or dresses. Be bold!

The Avante-Gardes

Red Carpet: The looks that took chances. Either playing with silhouettes or detailing, or, in three cases, trading dresses for tuxedos. In SJP's case, she took us back in time while Sophie Turner gave us a hint o' Art Deco.  Minimal rules, maximum impact!
Real Life: Ahh, these ladies wtere reminders of 'your day, your way'.... Being true to yourself is always in fashion.
