Held on Tuesday night in Beverly Hills, the Costume Designers Guild Awards was a glittering celebration of the best costume design in modern film and TV. It may not be one of the best-known ceremonies of awards season, but it’s hardly surprising to hear that there were a few incredible stand-out dresses. After all, you’d hope that Hollywood would wear their best to an event celebrating costume designers!
The guests seemed to be split between elegant neutrals and bold colours. Emmy Rossum wore what was quite possibly the most impressive dress of the entire evening – a neutral toned Donna Karan Atelier gown with a stunning voluminous train and cut-out neckline. She kept things simple, avoiding any accessories except for a pair of simple diamond earrings.
Mindy Kaling was probably her closest competition for best-dressed, although she chose a very different gown. Salvator Perez, costume designer for The Mindy Project, designed her a stunning emerald strapless dress with sari-inspired embroidery along the neckline and hems.
Other notable guests were January Jones, who was the centre of attention in a bold red jumpsuit, and Naomi Watts (who was honoured at the ceremony) in a stunning layered white gown. There were plenty of other major Hollywood celebrities in attendance, including Harrison Ford.
In terms of awards, a variety of TV shows and films were honoured. The major awards went to Into the Woods (Fantasy Film), Birdman (Contemporary Film), Game of Thrones (Period/Fantasy TV Series), The Grand Budapest Hotel (Period Film), True Detective (Contemporary TV) and American Horror Story (Made for TV Movie/Mini-Series). A few notable individuals were also honoured.
Have you seen any of these films/TV series – and if so, what did you think of the costumes? Do you agree that Emmy Rossum was the best dressed at the awards ceremony?
