Fashion News: Golden Globes 2012 has some stunning moments

January 16, 2012 |  8:44 am


Madonna and Andrea Riseborough made fashion statements on the Golden Globes 2012 red carpet

Madonna seemed to channel herself at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, wearing black, a cross pendant and fingerless gloves. The look was softened by her loose waves, which our Melissa Magsaysay explains how to achieve in another post. But the singer and actress made it clear the night wasn't all about her, walking the red carpet with Andrea Riseborough, the star of "W.E.," the new film about Wallis Simpson that Madonna directed and co-produced -- and making sure her star got plenty of the limelight too. The Globes fashion scene was kind of same-old, same-old, but with some stunning looks from risk-takers including the night's best dress, the Dior Couture gown worn by Charlize Theron, says Times fashion critic Booth Moore.

The Globes dominated the scene for fashion watchers this weekend, but it wasn't the only game in town. At Saturday's Art of Elysium "Heaven" gala, Cameron Silver, co-owner of Decades boutique, put on a fashion show. The gala, in Los Angeles' Union Station, combined formal gowns, a fashion show of vintage styles from Silver's boutique and a scene "that seemed to come straight out of a 1930's Fred Astaire movie."
