Now that awards season is in full swing, we can’t wait to see how our favourite stars light up the red carpet in some amazing and awe inspiring gowns!
The glitterati were out in full force at this years Golden Globes. Here are our top 5 dresses from the night!
1. In at number one is the once wild child, Nicole Richie. Always demure, and never one to be afraid of colour and texture Nicole looked out of this world in a powder blue Naeem Khan dress that stole the show!
2. Anne Hathaway.
Picking up the globe for best supporting actress wasn’t the only triumph for Anne. She wowed the red carpet crowd with this understated yet, oh so elegant Chanel ensemble.
Paired with her sleek elfin crop, Anne keeps it chic and sophisicated.
3. Jessica Alba.
Ombre hair, sun-kissed skin and bright coral lips are a winning combination for Jessica in Dior. Striking accessories finish of the look with class and a pinch of that old Hollywood glamour.
4. Amy Adams.
While we love an injection of colour, Amy Adams’ blush, chantilly lace, corseted gown with a full fishtail tulle skirt by Marchesa, stunned the fashion pack and was our favourite neutral dress of the night.
Kate brought drama to the Golden Globes this year in this stunning, brocade Alexander McQueen dress.
With a daring neckline and belt to accessorize we love this edgy outfit!
Out with the mundane and in with the new for 2013!
Here’s a list of Pop’s favourite things to get involved in, in Manchester in 2013!

The Beatle’s Sgt Peppers Lonley Hearts Club Band album cover is one of the most iconic images of pop culture, but it doesn’t stop there, pop down and immerse yourself in this artists unapologetic fusion of art and music and be amazed at how many iconic images of his have graced album covers for decade upon decade! http://www.thelowry.com/exhibitions/microsites/peter-blake-and-pop-music/home/
