Red Carpet Redux

Us girls at HOL love a red carpet look. The glamour, the fashion, the jewelry, what's not to love? This year at the Golden Globes everything from shades of purple and blushes, one-shoulder gowns, and even ponytails ruled the show. However we feel like many of our finest red carpet stunners could have amped it up a bit and had more fun with fabulous statement jewels! So we've taken a few of our fave looks and selected a few of our finest adornments to show you how to master a red carpet look all your own.

One of the biggest trends on the red carpet was the new trend-on shades of blush. To keep this new nude shade modern, pair up pretty pinks with bold gold. With the simplicity of this gown we love a knock-out statement earring accented with a gold, pearl and rhinestone cocktail ring. Ginnifer Goodwin in Vionnet An asymmetrical cocktail frock in a bold blue is always a fresh and young choice. A classy pairing of crystal drop chandelier earrings and a chunky cuff keeps the look updated and elegant. Chloe Sevigny in Valentino Purple reigned supreme and this Valentino gown in the palest shade of violet with all its ruffles asks for nothing more then a beautiful jeweled cluster earring and a bright toned ring. When you have a dress that speaks all its own, opt for simple yet chic add-ons that add a small dose of glitz and glam. Cluster earrings are making a major fashion comeback, and try a bold cocktail ring on your second finger for an added slash of surprise. Zoe Saldana in Louis Vuitton We think that it would be much fun to add a hint of cool color to this updated take on a romantic Edwardian look, that also happens to be one of our favorite best dressed of the night. Don't be affraid to add an additional choice of color to an already stunning monotone gown. Here we opted for a pale take on turquoise and showcased it boldly yet sophisticated through stacked bracelets. When playing up the wrists keep the earring simple and chic.
