Fashion Week Favorites: 2015 Golden Globes

No matter how much we like to devilishly dish on the serious red carpet fashion fails each season, we really just want to see some serious style, that keeps us talking (in a good way) until next year. Lucky for us, this year’s 72nd Golden Globes Awards and the red carpet didn’t disappoint…in fact, we were surprised at how many amazingly gorgeous looks graced the carpet and had us breaking down every aspect of their memorable look. End of the night takeaway? Elegant and classic is always the way to go.
