As we’re sure you’re aware, last night, Hollywood’s elite walked the red carpet for the Golden Globes. But it wasn’t just a big evening for the actors and directors who took home gilded statuettes—it’s an important affair for fashion folk, too. Mega stylists Karla Welch and Kemal Harris were not just on the scene, but also behind the scenes dressing co-host Amy Poehler (who looked svelte in Stella McCartney), Elisabeth Moss (who took home a best actress award while wearing J. Mendel), Olivia Wilde (who was radiant in Gucci Première), Zooey Deschanel (who opted for an elegant Oscar de la Renta gown), Robin Wright (who shimmered in Reem Acra while accepting her best actress honor), Hailee Steinfeld (who partied in Andrew Gn), and more. Here, Welch shares the pair’s Golden Globes diary and gives Style.com a firsthand account of what it’s like to dress leading ladies for one of Hollywood’s most glam-packed events.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes peek at Zooey Deschanel’s Oscar de la Renta look for the Globes.
This is a custom cuff I designed for Jacob & Co. with the Rauwolf clutch that Amy Poehler carried.
Amy Poehler had a Stella night.
The beginning! Sketches and swatches from the Stella team.
For Amy’s opening look, we went for Neil Lane vintage gold. Our mantra was, “What would Carol Burnett do?” Sometimes, more is more and it’s always better to have fun! Continue Reading “Golden Girls: Stylists Karla Welch and Kemal Harris Take Us Inside the Glamorous Globes” »
The 2014 Golden Globe nominees were announced today, and it looks like 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle—two movies that deftly capture two very different moments in American history—are the top contenders. With seven nominations each, the dramatic films are neck-and-neck competitors for Golden Globe (and, most likely, Oscar) glory.
Other notable nods in the Best Motion Picture lineup include blockbuster hits Gravity and Captain Phillips, as well as the Venice Film Festival winner for Best Screenplay, Philomena. Upcoming films Her and The Wolf of Wall Street also made the cut, rounding out a list of dramas and tearjerkers.
And let’s not forget our favorite (and most stylish) leading men and ladies. Cate Blanchett received a Best Actress nod for her role in Woody Allen’s acclaimed Blue Jasmine. (Her character’s collection of Chanel jackets may or may not deserve its own award.) Leonardo DiCaprio is nominated for Best Actor for The Wolf of Wall Street, and rising red-carpet star Lupita Nyong’o is up for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave. Jennifer Lawrence’s turn as a sexy housewife in American Hustle also earned her a Best Supporting Actress nomination. Lawrence will likely step out in Dior for the awards show, but we’re really feeling the messy updos and plunging halter dresses she wears in the film.
See the full list of nominees below, and tune into NBC on Sunday, January 12, to see our favorite funny girls Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the show live.
In the days leading up to January 13′s Golden Globes, L.A.-based celebrity superstylist Elizabeth Stewart is giving Style.com an exclusive behind-the-scenes account of what it takes to dress Hollywood’s hottest starlets. This season, she’s working with best actress nominee Jessica Chastain, Les Misérables star Amanda Seyfried, Julia Roberts (who’s presenting), and Cody Horn on their red-carpet looks. Below, Stewart gives us a glimpse into the first few days of the process.

On Thursday, I flew to New York for a day to fit Jessica Chastain for awards shows. I like to do one big fitting at the beginning of the season to get a plan in place. Which, of course, changes a million times, but at least there’s a plan!
Jessica’s schedule is so busy, but when I see her, we get a lot done. This time around, we received several awards-show options, met with a designer to look at sketches, and chose dresses for a few other upcoming events. We found her a dress for her Mama premiere (left), which was a few days later. We also found a Harry Winston collar for Jessica to wear with the dress, and it was brought by a guard! I headed straight to the airport after the fitting.

This is me and my bestie, Matthias Vriens-McGrath (above). We’re on a fashion editorial shoot that has nothing to do with awards-show season, but it illustrates perfectly how crazy this time of year is for me. My regular schedule stays the same, with awards-season craziness added in!

Today, I ran around pulling while waiting for Amanda Seyfried’s plane to land. Here is Carlos Souza from Valentino (above) showing me some dresses for Julia Roberts, who is presenting at the Globes. Afterwards, I ran to the fitting.
Here, I’m showing Amanda (above) sketches designers made for her on my laptop.
Still Wednesday! I could send you hundreds of pics of accessories, but this is the real nitty-gritty—my assistant Katie is holding a box of candy that Amanda grabbed as sustenance for our fitting!
And the boxes…my studio is my converted garage, but the boxes the dresses arrive in (from around the world!) spill out all over the house. By now, it’s 8:30 p.m., but we are still not done. I have to prep for fittings with Brit Marling (for Sundance) and Cody Horn (for Globes parties) tomorrow morning, before running off to help Amanda and Jessica get ready for the Critics’ Choice Awards.
