When it comes to hitting the red carpet during Award Season, it’s all about making a statement. But, as the likes of Helen Mirren, Amal Clooney and other celebs demonstrated at the Golden Globes, some statements are more important than others. With the aftershock of the events of Paris still resonating across the world, the ‘Je Suis Charlie’ slogan was as prominent a label on the red carpet this Sunday as any other.

While the likes of Kathy Bates, Diane Kruger, George Clooney and Joshua Jackson were photographed holding signs and smartphones bearing the slogan, Amal – a human rights lawyer – claimed that she chose to pin a Je Suis Charlie badge to her Dior purse “in solidarity with the French people who’ve gone through a terrible week.”

But if you ask us, Dame Helen made an even classier sartorial statement; she looked as immaculate as always in an embellished Dolce & Gabbana gown, but it was her accessory – a blue fountain pen worn as a brooch – that spoke loudest.
