Making the Red Carpet Red Hot
January 12, 2005
Manhattan to Los Angeles, awards season is in full swing,
but things really kick off on Sunday night with the
Golden Globe Awards. And while everybody's buzzing about
the nominees and potential winners, there's another
topic that's almost as hot -- style. The big question:
what's the look the stars will be sporting on the red
carpet this year? We've got the answer from the experts.
Halston Creative Director Bradley Bayou, who's fashioned
looks in the past for such A-listers as Debra Messing
and the "Desperate Housewives" cast, showed
off some of his new show-stopper gowns to "Extra."
Bradley thinks one of the Globe's fashion statements
this year will be, "A lot of vibrant colors to
pastels to a lot of golds."
"I see a lot of glamour, very couture, very '50s
inspired," he added.
Meanwhile, according to Randy Soto, creative director
of Harry Winston, Beverly Hills, glamour's the word
that also applies to this year's Golden Globe bling
brigade. "We have the most spectacular, right-hand
cocktail ring to wear for the red carpet," Soto
Actress Renee Wilson, who was one of the Rayettes in
the Golden Globe nominated "Ray," dropped
by Harry Winston and sampled a 17-carat yellow diamond
and a ruby diamond bracelet with matching earrings!
"I absolutely love these," she said.
And you can catch the fashion parade, when the Golden
Globes kick off at 7p.m. Sunday night on NBC.
