The Red Carpet:
The Golden Globes hit it off with a much different red carpet feel than that of the Peoples Choice awards in that there was color!
The winners took home a whole lot of respect and accreditation in their respective fields but what were they wearing? First lets start with a list of the winners, then talk a little about what some of them (and the other red carpet celebs) were wearing.
Kate Winslet looked fabulous in her curvaceous high-waisted dress and voluptuous revealing black satin bodice. I would put her on the best dressed list if the look was a little looser. There was a bit of pulling when she breathed in and that is red-carpet unacceptable.
Tilda Swinton wore a great periwinkle blue two piece that looked as angular as she is and because of the continuity between her appearance and her outfit I would place her into the best dressed of the event. Oh and she also wore an exquisite jeweled cuff that matched the unique color of her look. Fabulous
Sarah Michelle Gellar wore an interesting take on a Rorschach test by Monique Lhuillier. The inkblot look set her apart from other stars on the red carpet and the silhouette of the dress accentuated her figure to flattering heights. This non-traditional look gets placed in the best dressed list though many will disagree because of it’s off-the-beaten-path luxury.
Salma Hayek looked a bit disheveled in her Gucci gown which had large gold metallic payettes in a pattern across her chest. The problem was not the top but rather the combination of the bottom and top, the entire look was all mismatched and the black sequinned bottom just looked terrible. Although I love Hayek I have to throw her under the bus and place her in the worst dressed list.
Nicole Kidman looked great in her Versace gown which is a similar design to the look that was sold to so many Versace enthusiasts when H&M teamed up with Donatella Versace a few short months ago. Though I loved the look… I think this dress has been shown so many times and had so much press that it seems a bit overdone. Originality is definitely a quality that was lacking with this garment choice. Not Best dressed… but certainly not worst.
Mila Kunis wore a wretched black mesh disaster that looked like hot garbage and was equally as flattering. I’ve seen better outfits on actors playing characters in movies who have no style. Who approved this? #1 on my worst dressed list from the Golden Globes this year without question.
From one of the worst to one of the best, Evan Rachel Woods looked truly divine in her Gucci gown that was absolutely embroidered with feathers, scales, and all things beautiful. She wore it perfectly and this is what people want when they think “Red Carpet.”
Other Best dressed celebs were Claire Danes in J Mendel, Emma Stone in Lanvin, Lea Michele in Marchesa, Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen, and Jessica Chastain in Givenchy. All these women deserve awards simply for the way they looked on the red carpet not to mention their outstanding performances in their careers.
Other not so great looks were Madonna’s Reem Acra gown which had a little too much going on in a way that simply looked like it was too much, Michelle Williams in Jason Wu, Heidi Klum in Calvin Klein, and did I mention Mila Kunis? Man that ratty-tat repugnant eyesore was altogether frightful. Who is her stylist? Seriously… on what planet????
