The Golden Globe Awards are normally held sometime during the end of January through the end of March.

Sometimes the headbands which are worn are as golden as the statues presented at the awards ceremony.

The awards are held to present the very prestigious Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) awards. They are considered by many fashionistas to be the dress rehearsal for the Oscars, which are always held after the Golden Globes.

As always, Nicole did it just right. Honoring the new code for soft sultry natural waves and curls worn down, Nicole matched her romantic coif with a glittering gown.

Since her dress was so ornate Nicole wisely avoided wearing any distracting necklaces or earrings.

Adorning herself with a simple but elegant handbag and matching shoes, her only other accessories included the matching ring and cuffs on either wrist.

If you look closely at Nicole's photo you note that the cuffs and ring look like they were made out of the same material as the headband.


Back at the accessory design ranches the various designers are thrilled Nicole adopted the the soft sultry headband style.

Although Nicole directed the spotlight to these sensuous style bands, they have actually been gaining in popularity in some circles for the past few months.

Several well known accessory designers like L. Erickson, Jane Tran and Tarina Tarantino introduced gorgeous versions of this new soft headband style.

L. Erickson has been doing the soft Dupioni and 100% Charmeuse silk bands for some time in response to the current popularity of romantic and sultry accessories.

Anticipating the ever growing popularity of the headband, various designers also came out with matching tie sash and sash belts.

The accessories can be worn in a multitude of ways from around the waist, the hips, as a psuedo pashima or in Isadora Duncan style around the neck or head. The headbands and sash ties come in complementary or matching tones.


As a result of Nicole wearing a golden headband, the hair accessory market was abuzz. Don't be surprised to see headbands hitting the market which are made of a range of sensual materials from silks, satins and lace.
