It’s award season! At FIT, where it’s all design, all the time, this season begins with the end of Christmas and ends with FIT’s Future of Fashion shows in April. In the meantime, we are curious to see how the bruised entertainment industry polices itself. And we want to sit back and watch pretty, talented people wear pretty clothes made by talented people.
The entertainment industry spent much of last year processing the new boundaries of the #Metoo movement. Many of these were expressed by dress at awards shows. Last year’s Golden Globe awards featured many women elegantly attired in all black. This year, color has rebounded and Pantone won. Jamilla Jamil wore exactly Pantone’s 2019 Color: Living Coral.
Lady Gaga, not to be outdone, coordinated her perfect midtone periwinkle with her hair.
While the black of last year’s Golden Globes was seen on a few actresses, in general the blues won the day this year. Gaga’s periwinkle was possibly the most dramatic in silhouette, but the color that won was a deeper, Prussian blue.
It was in classic Calvin Klein simplicity by Amy Adams.
Gemma Chan more a dramatically draped version by Valentino. Like Gaga’s gown, this is lusciously draped in heavy silk faille. The shorts update the look.
One of the most interesting gowns in this color range was this brocaded blue and green gown by Jason Wu, worn by Camilla Belle.
Probably the most playful blue tones were worn by Lupita Nyong’o and set off by the rich flame gown of her friend, Danai Gurira, in this playful Instagram vid. Enjoy!
