Lena Dunham 'didn't wow at Globes'

Lena Dunham and Lana Del Rey failed to impress top hair stylist Ken Picton with their Golden Globe fashion choices.

The Girls creator donned a red Zac Posen dress at yesterday's award ceremony, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Her short hair was back to brunette after she recently flirted with a bleached 'do, but Ken Picton, ambassador for GHD, L'Oréal and Kerastase, says she got it all wrong.

"Now for those who missed the mark. Lena Dunham failed to wow with her try-hard mix of graphic bob and graphic Zac Posen gown. The harsh lines create a jarring overall image, I think if she had softened her hair with a gentle wave she could have been on to a winning look," Ken told Cover Media.

"Another star who should have counteracted her hair with her outfit is Lana Del Rey. The queen of retro glamour lost some of her vintage appeal with a 70s-inspired concertina dress and huge beehive. Sometimes less really is more."

While some may have got it wrong, there were plenty who wowed Ken in the style stakes.

George Clooney's new wife Amal made her Golden Globes debut last night, choosing a Dior couture gown, Harry Winston jewellery and a pair of her own white gloves for the occasion.

"For me, the shining couple of the evening was George and Amal Clooney. The co-ordination between the pair was red carpet styling at its best, from the soft natural hair to the twist of classic white gloves and the Je Suis Charlie badge [to support the Charlie Hebdo tragedy].

"By keeping her look traditional but fresh, Amal was able use her position to showcase a political message."

After collecting his Cecil B. DeMille Award last night, George spoke about how much simpler he has it when it came to choosing an outfit for the awards bash.

"Guys have it so much easier. It’s honestly not fair. Amal was looking at dresses last night, still trying to figure out what she was going to wear and I was watching the football game,” George told reporters in the Golden Globe press room.

“It was 2 o’clock this afternoon we were still watching the ball game. It’s not fair to women at the award show, but it’s nice. I’m wearing my wedding tux.”
