The 5 Most Important Accessories At The 2014 Golden Globes

When designers pull out all the stops to outfit Hollywood’s biggest stars, as was the case at last night’s Golden Globe Awards, accessories have a tendency to get lost in the shuffle. Luckily for us detail-oriented folks, there were a few style sidekicks that earned themselves a starring role in the night’s most memorable moments. And no, we’re not strictly talking about jewelry and beaded clutches here. We’re talking about accessories in the unconventional sense of the word. Take a look at the biggest scene-stealers…

During the three-hour telecast’s mid-show lull, our reliable hostesses (all hail Tina and Amy) performed a little stunt to kick us out of our Seamless-delivery food coma. As Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick showed off their Miss Golden Globe daughter, Sosie Bacon, Tina Fey interrupted to introduce the world to her illegitimate love child Randy, a.k.a. Mr. Golden Globe, a.k.a. Amy Poehler in a flippy Justin Bieber-esque wig. It was one of the best gags of the night, and that highlighted ’do stole the show. P.S. Does anyone else think Amy was one of the hottest guys in attendance? Just me? *ACHEM* Moving on…

Emma Thompson’s presentation ended up being another one of the most talked about moments of the evening, thanks in large part to her entrance: walking onto the stage barefoot, holding her Christian Louboutins in hand and later chucking them over her shoulder. She pointed to the shoes’ iconic soles and said, “I just want you to know, this red? It’s my blood,” we could relate about 100%. Monsieur Louboutin may not have loved the gesture, but she’s just speaking a truth that every woman who’s spent over an hour in three-inch-plus heels with a ~delicate~ toe box knows. #factsonly That ish ain’t comfy.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus wins the award for Best Audience Member. No contest. We love when funny ladies join forces, and Julia was clearly in on some of Amy and Tina’s jokes. About midway through the show, the hosts pointed out how the double nominee (for her show Veep and the movie Enough Said) had “slithered back to the TV section” after they had ribbed her earlier for ditching the TV crowd to sit in the film section. Cut to Louis-Dreyfus unabashedly chomping on a hot dog and eagerly waving. The mustard-and-relish-covered frank, of course, was a symbol, playing to the silly idea that television actors are not as classy as their Hollywood counterparts, but we’re pretty sure ballpark fare has never looked quite so glamorous.

One of the most beautiful, not-found-in-stores accessories of the night was the BABY BUMP, as showcased by beauties Olivia Wilde, Kerry Washington, and Drew Barrymore. Long gone are the days of moms-to-be drowning their growing bellies under curtains of fabric. We LOVED Olivia’s shimmering emerald Gucci gown that hugged, not hid, her growing belly. Kerry took a similar approach with her structured Balenciaga gown, and that pale color totally enhanced her pregnancy glow. Drew looked positively radiant (and comfortable!) in her airy Monique Lhuillier dress covered in red and pink petal appliqués. They made dressing for a bun in the oven look easy!

Finally, the ultimate and most unexpected accessory of the night—Bono! Who knew? First, his mere appearance made Cate Blanchett drop a quippy zinger on the red carpet (“Your first album was really good!”). Then he prompted a universal cringe when he awkwardly dodged Diddy’s bromantic advances while collecting his award for Best Original Song. And lastly, in the greatest moment of the entire night, he appeared as Amy Poehler’s personal masseur and subsequent make-out partner (upon her win). Every star he touched turned to internet gold, which makes him, IMHO, the best kind of sidekick. Bono, you did us proud.
