Plenty of pink, puffy sleeves and shimmer at Golden Globes

NEW YORK (AP) — There was plenty of pink, puffy sleeves and a touch of neon on the Golden Globes red carpet as the stars shimmered and shined last Sunday on one of the award season’s biggest nights for fashion.

And then there was Jennifer Lopez, in Valentino Couture with a huge gold and emerald green bow at the bodice, her hair piled high in high braided bun and her jewels — all 145 carats of Colombian emeralds and 58 diamonds — courtesy of Harry Winston.

The Lopez look included a voluminous white gown under that statement bow. While she toted plenty of fabric, Gwyneth Paltrow was travelling light in a bronze, two-piece Fendi look of sheers over sheers.

Reese Witherspoon (white Roland Mouret), Jennifer Anniston (black Dior) and Nicole Kidman were among the stars who went classic Hollywood. Charlize Theron took a risk that paid off with a draped sash on one shoulder in neon green and a black bustier underneath.

Pink had a moment in soft hues for Kirsten Dunst (Rodarte) and Dakota Fanning. Isla Fisher and Tiffany Haddish went for bold hot pink, while Margot Robbie showed off a burst of encrusted colour in a strapless top with a white column skirt below by Chanel, her hair loose and beach wavy.

Chokers were abundant, from Theron to Cynthia Erivo, the latter wearing a huge blue stone at the centre of her short necklace.
