Things Got Pretty Experimental on the Fashion Front Last Night—And We Liked It

This could very well be the year that puts truly exciting red-carpet fashion back into the style sphere. For too long have celebrities and stylists been too careful, safe in their lovely-but-seen-it-before ballgowns without a risk of falling onto a worst dressed list. The new mood in fashion town is one of joyous individuality, of piling on your accessories until you resemble Iris Apfel's twin or a Gucci campaign girl, of approaching trends four at a time with wild abandon and not giving two tosses over what's actually en vogue or not.

It seems that the unique message has definitely spread to the A-list world, with last night's W Magazine Golden Globes Party at L.A.'s famed Chateau Marmont sparking up a series of brocade trouser suits, crazy faux fur combined with slip dresses, seriously shiny slit-to-there frocks paired with suede OTKs… Wrong on paper, so right IRL. No chance these experimental looks are landing on a no-no pile—not in our opinion, anyway.
