Modest dresses at the Golden Globes 2017

What is your definition of a modest dress? Some define modest clothing by how much skin is showing or covered, perhaps by how tight or how loose the outfit is. Perhaps a dress is skin tight or form fitting, perhaps it’s loose and doesn’t show the silhouette. Maybe a dress is too short when it shows the knees or maybe you define modesty as wearing clothing down to the ankles and up to your wrists? Others may define dressing modestly as wearing inexpensive clothing, clothing which is not focused on vanity or price, and does not draw attention to oneself. Today we looked at the Golden Globes red carpet for inspiration on style, these are our favourite gowns from the 2017 Golden Globes. With designers including Gucci and Louis Vuitton, we can hardly say these outfits are modest in cost, but they are certainly ones that stand out for letting these women shine for their artistic talent, and not just their looks.

Which is your favourite gown? Have to admit we love the depth of Ruth Negga’s metallic floral dress! Ruffles are always a little risky, but somehow this designer managed to combine ruffles, a high neckline and metallic florals into something beautifully striking.
