Post Golden Globes Glows

Marion Cotillard & Penelope Cruz
Michael O’Connor, one of America’s leading voices on style, jewelry and accessories and has become the “go-to” resource for editors and producers seeking information on current trends and celebrity style.
Predicting what's going to be "hot" on Sunday's red carpet, he guessed that Marion Cotillard would be of the one actresses appearing in an one shoulder style and/or sleeveless gowns where they can pinpoint one area for focused glamour to create drama.
Michael commented longer soft hair is beautiful on Penelope's face shape.

Mr. O'Connor was spot-on in predicting what Emily Blunt is going to wear and how she'll style her makeup.
Michael commented the best color for her is pink, perfect for Emily’s skin. He also guessed correctly on her red carpet makeup, her eyes look best when highlighted in a cat’s eye or smoky eye style – something very dramatic.
As for her total outfit, he perfectly predicted this with Emily's strapless gown, plenty of stacked bracelets when highlighting a wrist.
This is what he has to say about Ms. Blunt's look, five days before the Golden Globes, "Youthful Emily Blunt could rock this look beautifully while keeping her ears and neckline simple."
So spot-on!
His prediction for Sandra Bullock's appearance is this... "Sandra’s strong jawline is best suited to softer hairstyles."

Another sharp guesswork from Michael is Julianne Moore, "Purple or black create a striking combination with her hair color."

For her hair and makeup, he was right on again, "Simple make-up and softer casual hair keep her youthful."

Since whatever pops up on the red carpet does dictate evening and cocktail wear for everyone and everywhere, Michael O'Connor foretell cautious glamour or tasteful glitz.
Paraphasing accessorizing advice from "The Preppy Handbook" where it is always good taste to under accessorizing, "Get completely dressed for a party, then take off one piece of jewelry."
Michael foretells this for the Golden Globes, "With some celebrities still feeling a little cautious about the economy and being too flashy, we’re going to see some of them channel a more focused glamour. They’ll pick one area and create drama there. For example, large chandelier style earrings will be popular with those who choose to forego a necklace. "
With this parade of "grown-up glamour" where they pared down to simply chic strapless or elegantly crafted off-shoulder or one-shoulder gowns, they forgo the blitzed out bling necklaces (unless you're Julia Roberts in a casually understated shirtdress and needed chunky chains of necklaces to up the ante at night), and zeroed in on the wrist and save the diamante dazzle for that.
To further the restraint and very conscious of the best and worst-dressed lists, these celebrities really paid attention to what mattered-the dress, the fabric, the draping, the skirt tail, and the neckline and made the dress the center piece.
