It’s that time of year again. The 71st Golden Globe Awards in Hollywood. It’s the most unpredictable show of the award season and last night’s show was no different. Between the acceptance speeches, skits and of course, the fashion, it sure did not disappoint. Funny women Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the shindig and as always, were hilarious, and actually both were some of the best dressed of the evening. The award show was quite enjoyable, but let’s get down to the fashions.
To our chagrin, most of the gowns were ugly, unflattering and starless. Even actresses who usually dress in the most stunning of gowns had an off night. There were lots of blah colors, shapeless cuts and lackluster hair styles. Who knows?
Let’s kick it off with some fashion hits and some of the best dressed of the night. Olivia Wilde looked radiant in a sparkling emerald long sleeve modest gown. It was form fitting, feminine and conservative in one.
Zoe Saldana wore one of the most interesting and quite gorgeous dresses of the night. A gown by Prabal Gurung, who said he could only see Saldana wearing it, was flirty, feminine, complex and beautiful. We especially loved the colors – black and pink always look nice together, adding on the flower accessories, you have a winner.
Lupita Nyong’o in her red Ralph Lauren gown looked absolutely exquisite. The cape was different than what we normally see on the red carpet and it absolutely worked. Lena Dunham in a vibrant yellow Zac Posen actually made our Best Dressed list this year. The color was bright and cheerful and the cut was girly, feminine and fit her body wonderfully.
Amy Adams also made our Best Dressed list. The red deep V neckline gown was beautiful, elegant and perfect for Adams’ coloring.
To the Worst Dressed. Emma Watson looked like a shapeless pumpkin in this orange dress. It had no design, it did nothing for Watson’s figure and looked too matronly for this young starlet. As much as we love her, Drew Barrymore lands on our Worst Dressed list. Yes, she looks stunning as a whole. She really is glowing. The dress was just wrong. The colors, the shape, looked more like an Easter gown than a black tie awards show dress.
Another girl we LOVE, but just didn’t get it right last night: Jennifer Lawrence. We usually love the dresses she picks out, but this black and white dress was bland, boring and did nothing for her. What were the black horizontal stripes for? We’ll never know. They just shouldn’t have been there. Her hair looked great and her makeup was flawless, we just wish she would have picked a brighter colored dress with more design.
Julianne Margulies also landed on on Worst Dressed List. The gown made her look 30 pounds heavier (not something any Hollywood actress wants). The black with gold accents was quite dark, like goth, and unflattering. The V-neckline, though popular, did not work on this dress. A different color, design, style and length was a must need for this good wife.
