The Golden Globe Awards were last night and the Hollywood Foreign Press passed out awards to Argo, Homeland, Les Misérables, and Girls. But who really cares who wins! It’s all about the fashion right? I mean aren’t awards shows all about judging stars for their fashion choices while you are in your pajamas eating Oreos? Here are my thoughts:
The Hot Colors
Red was huge. Claire Danes, Jennifer Lawrence, Zooey Deschanel, and Jennifer Garner all wore different shades of the hot color. Sex appeal was everywhere. Angelina legs were popping out all over (see Heidi Klum and Eva Longoria) and neutral-colored, body revealing, see-through numbers were also a hit (see JLo and Kerry Washington).
It seems you can’t talk about award show dresses with out discussing breasts. Who showed them, who didn’t, who picked a dress that made theirs look horrible (Yes Halle Berry I’m talking to you!) V-neck dresses were worn by big winners including Jessica Chastain in her mint colored Calvin Klein frock and Clare Danes–who I can’t believe had a baby less than a month ago. Also Julia Roberts, in another plunging dress, was a nice surprise. She looks better than ever!
While we are discussing boobs… Jennifer Lawrence fell on a lot of people’s best dressed list but not mine. Sorry her dress was begging for a Madonna cone bra reference. Am I alone?
While we are discussing sex appeal, I am loving newly single Amy Poehler’s sexy looks! You go girl with your age-appropriate cleavage! I also loved all of Tina Fey’s dress choices. These two did an awesome job. I hope they host again next year. If not can these 2 host?
Fresh and Modern
Does Marion Cotillard ever look bad? Her asymmetrical hem Dior dress was perfect and refreshing. So was her simple beauty: hair down, minimal makeup. (No makeup seemed to be a huge trend. Loved it on Marion but others were begging for some lipstick- Yes I am looking at you Sienna Miller!) Marion looked so modern whereas Lena Dunham in Zac Posen, (I LOVE Lena and was thrilled to see her win) was the opposite. For someone whose writing is fresh and edgy her look was just not. Plus, girl, didn’t you learn at your senior prom, always pick comfortable shoes. No one wants to limp the whole night, especially George Clooney present.
Less Is More and More Can Be More Too!
I liked Emily Blunt’s and Kristen Wiig’s cut-out dresses. I am, however, on the fence about Kate Hudson’s McQueen keyhole dress. She looked beautiful but the gold collar was a bit much. I also liked stars that donned long sleeve numbers. Julianne Moore in Tom Ford, Naomi Watts in Zac Posen and the always glowing Helen Mirren in Badgley Mischka, made excellent gown choices! Modesty in general works, as seen in Michelle Dockery’s gold and white gown. The Brits are so classy!
Worst Dressed, In My Opinion
A tie between Lucy Liu (was that a Laura Ashley bedspread?) and Giuliana Rancic (too much was going on).
So what are your thoughts? Do you agree or disagree?
