Your hair is perfect, your makeup is flawless and you feel like a million bucks! Those are the nights when every fashion choice and beauty decision fall into place. And as stylists we hope we are making more of those magical nights happen for our clients. But EVERYBODY has an occasion where even with all the prepping and preparing you still make a fashion faux pas. Hopefully they don’t happen too often! And last week’s Golden Globes was no exception. Some stars got it oh so right and some unfortunate celebs got it oh so wrong! But that just goes to show that even the most stylish gals can slip up (yes Halle Berry, that means you!) Yet, isn’t it better to take chances and be a little daring than blah and boring? What’s the fun in always playing it safe all the time? And if your fashion choice goes from DUO to DONT; just reapply a little lipgloss, smile and go with it. And know that next time you will get it right!

Jessica Alba is a DUO in a coral Oscar De La Renta trumpet gown and dazzling jewels.

Halle Berry is a DON’T! But at least she tried to shake it up a little. Her face is gorgeous, her body is flawless but the dress is a hot mess!

DUO: Kate Hudson makes basic black look anything but!!

DON’T: This striking blue Naeem Khan would look beautiful on a more statuesque girl like Nicole Kidman . On this Nicole it looks like she is wearing her mother’s dress! But kudos to Richie for experimenting with color. Next time she should try a strapless cocktail dress in this periwinkle! Just an idea….

Jodi Foster’s gutsy speech and classy gown were both DUOS!

Sienna Miller in Erdem was a DON’T. This dress would’ve worked better for the hostess of a backyard brunch instead of a starlet on the red carpet. But Sienna did embrace the color and floral trend and there was a feminity to her look.

The moral of the story is sometimes when you get it wrong, you might actually be getting it right. Fashion is about making statements and sometimes the statement should be I gave it a shot, I turned some heads, and made people think. Next up The Sag Awards, The Grammys and The Oscars!
