The 2014 Golden Globes Fashion Wrap-Up!!

The Fictionista

Remember this from my blog post last January?

"January, for me, is all about the Golden Globes and fashion.

This was one of the best ceremonies in a long time, thanks to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The ladies were funny and classy and they kept things moving. In fact, the only thing I didn't like about them was that I didn't see them enough! I hope they're back next year, but I wonder if repeat performances will ruin the perfection of this one."

The awards ceremony gods listened to me and the funny ladies were back!! Next year, I'd like to be at the ceremony, sitting at a table with Ben & Jen. "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there!"

Here's my breakdown of the ceremony:

The Hollywood Foreign Press (HFP) got it right: Andy Samberg and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It's a really funny show. And since they didn't give my girl Mindy Kaling and The Mindy Project any love...

The Hollywood Foreign Press (HFP) got it right, Part Deux: Elisabeth Moss in Top Of The Lake. It was a great mini-series directed by Jane Campion and I'm so glad Moss was recognized for it. She's smart, sexy, vulnerable and flawed as a detective investigating the disappearance of a 12-year old pregnant girl. If you haven't seen the show, and you like crime dramas, I think it's streaming on Netflix.

The HFP got it wrong: Behind the Candelabra.  I can't even... *dry heave*... It's... *sigh*

Best Monologue Joke: "Gravity is nominated for best film. It's the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age." ROTFLMAO

Now, the fashions...

Best dressed

Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren. When I saw her, I gasped. Gorgeous. The dress was simple and stunning. And on her skin tone... breathtaking.

Worst dressed

Paula Patton in Stephane Rolland Couture. It pains me to say this because I'm a big fan of Paula's and she's married to the sexy Robin Thicke (interracial love, holla ;-) ), but this dress did nothing to emphasize her beauty or her great figure. 


Cate Blanchett in Armani Couture. I am a fan of Cate's past choices and she looks beautiful, but I wasn't overwhelmed. Not like I was when she wore this (see below) to the Oscars in 2000. 

Did you watch the Globes? What did you think? And what was Jacqueline Bisset "on"? ;-)

Finally, on another note, I am thrilled to announce that my debut novel, The Tycoon's Socialite Bride, will be released next month from Entangled Publishing!! I can't wait for you to read it. If you like the flavor of my blog posts, then you'll love the story.

Make sure you join me next month for more about my debut release and my Grammys ceremony and fashion recap!

Tracey Livesay's debut novel will be released with Entangled Publishing in February, 2014. She blogs here on the third Monday of every month. If you like the flavor she's bringing, you can check out her blog, Mimosas at Midnight or Like her Facebook page.


  1. Fun post, Tracey! Of course I didn't watch the Globes. I was too busy watching gritty crime dramas. (Thanks for the tip on Top of the Lake!) I always look forward to your posts. They keep me updated on what's going on out there in the fashion and pop world!

    1. I forgot to add...really looking forward to your new book! So exciting!

  2. I'm so glad you do this blog, Tracey, because otherwise I'd never see these outfits and get a chance to state my uneducated opinions. LOL Lupita was stunning indeed. I agree that Paula must have had on a blindfold when she selected that white number. Why would she do that to her silhouette? And Cate's looks kinda dowdy to me. Maybe if the neckline was a little less busy? Then again, I'm not a Fashionista so what do I know? Well, I DO know that I love your posts AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOUR NEW BOOK! So very excited and happy for you!

  3. I caught 'top of the lake' and watched everything, then it stopped, was there an ending?? I'm a big fan of Holly Hunter, although I'd agree, the detective was one of the most compelling characters I've seen in a while,
    Again, I'm excited to read your book - Mazel Tov in a great big way, and with the others, I'm also glad you keep me informed because without you, I wouldn't be.
