Golden Globe beauty renegades

Red carpet events, of every kind, conjure up the image of tumbling Hollywood curls, flawless skin and weeks’ worth of preparation. This year’s Golden Globes proved no exception in the glamour stakes but whilst the ladies looked the part in every imaginable way the look was more modern, happily unfinished and far softer. The mood of ladylike elegance – echoed by this season’s fashion and beauty diktat - reigned entirely supreme, but with a few tweaks, naturally.

The new classic

Although the failsafe red lip and vintage curls combo championed by Andrea Riseborough always brings a little much-welcomed old-school appeal to the proceedings, it was Angelina’s homage to traditional elegance that truly stole the show. Her softly winged eyeliner and girlish pink lip colour were as far away from her usual strong red lip or graphite smoky eye as we’ve seen her venture before.

Deconstructed hair

Although Jessica Chastain opted for traditional Globe-worthy back-brushed Hollywood hair, her take on the Stepford Wife with a twist singled her out as a hair renegade. Curls were shaken into cascading waves by Julianne Moore and Salma Hayek while simple up-do’s - without a can of hairspray in sight- took precedence for Mila Kunis, Emma Stone and Kate Winslet.

The irregular choice

Michelle William’s kooky headband or Tilda Swinton’s homage to the Shoreditch upsweep were just a few of the quirky little touches that never pass unnoticed by bloggers and beauty obsessives on the red carpet. Our favourite, winning by light-years, was Zooey Deschanel’s tuxedo nails that served as a welcome distraction from the size of her overly-coiffured hair. And for this, we forgive her.
