Minimally glamorous beauty accessorized what seemed to be a never-ending assortment of one-shouldered dresses at Sunday night’s rainy Golden Globes ceremony. Chloë Sevigny, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Drew Barrymore fought the weather with sleek, pulled-back chignons, while Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock worked lower, looser side-parted adaptations of the same style. There were some updo dissenters as well, with Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts bucking the humidity and keeping their tresses long, beachy, and blonde. But what really stood out for me among the bevy of false lashes, thinly lined black cat-eyes, and sculpted cheeks was the dominance (again!) of the red lip. Two-time nominee and one-time winner Meryl Streep chose a shiny, sheer hue; Cameron Diaz opted for an opaque gloss using Chanel’s Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon; Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks paired Shu Uemura’s Rouge Unlimited #134 with a very pink cheek; and her co-star, January Jones, one-upped her much-discussed black headband by previewing Chanel’s new Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Paris, which launches in March. In the season’s first big red-carpet beauty battle, the award goes to again, the ever reliable red lipstick.
