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?

It’s my favorite time of the year — award season! Sunday’s Golden Globes celebrated the best of 2010′s movies and television. Yes of course there were the actual big winners (Social Network, Glee, Boardwalk Empire) but here are my personal winners:
My winner for best dressed is… Olivia Wilde in Marchesa. She looked gorgeous and I especially loved her unexpected shoe choice of gold jeweled Christian Louboutin booties. Her bangs were also perfect, which leads me to…
Most in need of a bang trim… Sandra Bullock. I really wanted to crawl through the screen, take a scissor to them and thin them out.
Most used hue of the night… Green. Mila Kunis in Vera Wang, Catherine Zeta-Jones in Monique L’huillier and Angelina in Versace all chose green gowns. It also happened to be the color of the JETS too, so truly the color of the entire night! (Go JETS!)
Best Pee-wee Herman look a like… Robert Downey, Jr. A grey suit with a red tie — I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. Just an observation.
The “is that my grandma’s table cloth from the 70s” winner is… Michelle Williams. She was so good in Blue Valentine and is so pretty that she totally pulls off the Mia Farrow circa Rosemary’s Baby pixie hair cut. I just wish she went for a sleeker, more modern dress.
Best “who is that?” moment… Emma Stone. Nominated for Easy A, ES showed off her newish blonde hair (currently dyed for her role in Spider-Man). I liked her minimal look of a sexy Calvin Klein Collection peach dress with no accessories and natural makeup.
The “will you accept this rose?” award… Natalie Portman. Yes I was writing this while I was watching The Bachelor but I thought the newly pregnant Natalie looked adorably glowing in Victor & Rolf.
She could look hot in a garbage bag winner is… Sofia Vergara. Also loved that she tweeted “I already have 2 golden globes!” that night.
The “they make it look so easy” award goes to… hot guys. Seriously, all they have to do is put on a tux or suit and bam! They look gooooood. Examples include: Robert Pattinson (in spite of his ginger hair color), Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Gosling and John Hamm. Double points for R Patz and J Hamm who donned navy.
Most emphasized body part… shoulders. Whether they were covered and elongated or exposed there was a lot of attention drawn to them. There were a ton of asymmetrical dresses; some good (Mila Kunis) and one I personally thought was horrid (Julianne Moore, what were you hiding in there!). Claire Danes showed her shoulders off in a halter dresses. Anne Hathaway rocked some shoulder pad action which I hated at first but after staring at it for a while I kind of like (yes, I know shocking!). Runner up for most emphasized body part: the lower back. See Emma Stone, Eva Longoria, Clare Danes and Anne Hathaway.
Winner for the “Really!?” award… Tina Fey. Really Tina!? Again with the bad fashion choice… Really!? Someone needs to put an end to the madness! Really!?
The person I most want to force feed a cheeseburger to… January Jones. Her entire look was awesome and I loved the Versace dress, but that girl looks like she hasn’t eaten in weeks. Runners up include: Megan Fox and Clare Danes.
So, do you agree or disagree with me? Let’s discuss…

Continued from yesterday…here is my favorite red carpet moments for the woman in the movie categories…
Best Actress in Drama- Movies
Emily Blunt , The Young Victoria
Emily always looks beautiful on the red carpet. The eye catching blue Calvin Klein dress she wore to the Oscars in 2007 certainly stood out. I loved how she kept it minimal by not wearing a necklace. She let the dress speak for itself.
Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side and The Proposal
Sandra’s look at last years Golden Globe awards was magnificent. I thought the pairing of a pale pink asymmetrical dress (Dior) with turquoise and gold jewelry and a matching turquoise clutch was fabulous.
Helen Mirren, The Last Station
Always age appropriate, Dame Helen, made an excellent choice with this Christian Lacroix dress for the 2004 Oscars, the year she won for her role in The Queen.
Carey Mulligan, An Education
With her fashion forward style choices, I can’t wait to see what Carey will be wearing on Sunday. I loved her look at the LA premiere of An Education – a strapless, floral Lanvin dress.
Gabourey Sidibe, Precious
A new comer to acting and red carpets, Gabourey has had an amazing year. She knows how to show off her curvy shape and the David Meister dress she wore for her film’s Cannes premiere, truly flattered her figure.

The Golden Globes are this Sunday and there are 18 beautiful women nominated in the Best Actress category for movies and television (Sandra and Meryl are nominated twice). In preparation, I’ve chosen my favorite red carpet moments for all the lovely ladies.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical
Toni Collette, United States of Tara
Nominated for her role as a woman with multiple personalities, Toni followed her glamorous side at last year’s Emmy’s with this red embroidered organza strapless Monique Lhuillier gown.
Courtney Cox, Cougar Town
The sexy black plunging Dior dress that Courtney wore to the 2003 Golden Globes would be perfect if she was a real cougar and not married to David Arquette.
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie
Nominated for her role as Carmela Soprano in 2007, Edie’s Randi Rahm black sheath with floral appliqué didn’t land her on the best-dressed list but I thought she looked fabulous!
Tina Fey, 30 Rock
Funny lady Tina chose a flattering black David Meister dress to the Emmy awards in 2008.
Lea Michele, Glee
Lea seems to opt for fun, short dresses for special events. I loved the House of Lavande cherry red dress she wore to last week’s People’s Choice Awards.
