I loved watching the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards last night. Ricky Gevais as host was both snarky, mean-spirited and at times down right rude, but isn’t that why they hired him in the first place. The show itself was a tad predictable with a few surprises. But I don’t watch to see who won, I watch to see what the girls are wearing. I did get an early start with the red carpet shows, switching from one to the other. I must say, the ladies were quite stunning this year. Shall we take a look?
Is it St. Patrick’s Day?
Angelina Jolie and Mila Kunis both look ready to kiss the blarney stone in their kelly green gowns. Of the two, I like Angie’s better only because it’s not so tight, but I’m not crazy about the Joan Crawford shoulder pads.
Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss definitely looks like an impish little leprechaun in her tightly folded strapless gown but all of these ladies are green with envy because Catherine Zeta-Jones is the clear winner. Bravo and off to the Emerald City!
Eva Longoria from Desperate Housewives wins my vote for “best dressed” of the evening. Everything from head to to toe, hair and make-up, was perfect. The same goes for Emma Stone. Both women had clean lines and did not ruin their looks by piling on the jewelry and other accessories.
Carrie Underwood and Sarah Hyland are also at the top of my list. Both ladies are not overdone and their gowns are perfect for them. I’m so happy the messy “can’t find a hairbrush” style is gone. I’m told we have Sarah Palin to thank for this new upsweep with bangs hair style. I don’t have much I want to thank Sarah for, but I will give her cudos for this one.
In the sexy best dressed department, the winners are definitely Burlesque‘s Christina Aguilera in her black laced strapless mermaid gown & Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara in form fitting red satin trimmed in black. The back of Sophia’s dress was also amazing.
Honorable mentions on my best dressed list. Olivia Wilde looks like a princess in her full-skirted gown. It’s a happy dress and it makes me happy to look at it and her. I love Jennifer Lopez’s gown. It’s odd because I usually don’t. I really like the sheer cape over her shoulders. Way to go J-Lo!
The Clunkers: Worst Dressed!
“Whimsical”, that’s what The King’s Speech Helena Bonham Carter said about her outfit last night and I believe her. She’s a free spirit and really doesn’t give a good goddamn about what anyone has to say about her or what she wears. I do love the fact that she wore two different colored shoes. Now Heidi Klum, on the other hand, makes her living on high fashion, and to show up in a monstrosity the likes of that. Well all I can say is Mondo didn’t design it, that’s for sure.
I can’t even begin to understand what would make Julianne Moore think this dress was beautiful. The sleeve? The wrinkles? The color? The jeweled neck clasp? Yuk Yuk Yuk & Yuk! As for Tina Fey, she looks like she’s the understudy for the Addam’s Family Morticia. Is she ever going to get it right?
The Mad Men girls: January Jones saw her dress on a runway show in blue and asked to have it made in red. When I watched her being interviewed on both red carpet shows, she kept fidgeting with her midrift and those strings made her belly look pudgy. Very unflattering! Christina Hendricks dress, on the other hand, is quite beautiful EXCEPT for that HUGE flower in her face. WTF? Why? It totally clashes with her hair. Why ruin a great gown with a wad of leftover fabric.
Why do I hate orange? It just doesn’t belong on the red carpet. It clashes! I was very happy that Katey Sagal won for her role on Sons of Anarchy, really I was. The cameras even zoomed in on Al Bundy smiling proudly as she accepted her award. But her dress looked like my first attempt at sewing a seam in home ec class, the material all bunched up, puckered and tight. As for Kyra Sedgewick, I will say it again, the only thing cute I’ve ever seen her wear is her husband and he’s getting a little worn out these days.
The Angel vs the She-Devil. Neither one of them knows how to dress! Jennifer Love-Hewitt’s gown makes me want to throw ping bong balls into her top for valuable prizes Minute To Win It style! Halle Berry, who usually gets it right, looks more like she’s meeting up with Charlie Sheen in Vegas for the weekend.
Two more beautiful girls with too much left-over fabric. Glee‘s Lea Michele didn’t win anything last night and I’m not giving her any cudos either. She usually looks princess cute but this dress is the wrong color. The fabric looks heavy and there’s just too much of it going nowhere. Amy Adams needs to take some scissors and just cut off that bunch on her hip and also that matching bunch on her bodice. Then she’d have a really nice looking gown. Both girls could Sarah Palin their hair a bit better.
Bring on the BEIGE!
Sandra Bullock is walking like an Egyptian or that’s what it seems like to me. The dark hair, bangs and makeup matched with her gown gives me a pyramid feel. Scarlett Johansson’s gown looks like it was made from fabric used to line funeral caskets. It really washes out her skin too.
These two young ladies both look lovely. Dianna Agron & Kaley Cuoco chose strapless gowns, but I like Dianna’s better only because I’m partial to straight lines and not ruffles. Kaley would have looked better if her hair hadn’t been pulled into a ponytail.
They say it ain’t over til the …. well you get the idea! Glee‘s Amber Riley looks fantastic in her shiny metallic gown. Her hair and make-up are perfect. On the other hand, The Big C‘s Gabourey Sidibe looks like she just got out of the spa and put on one of those fancy silk robes they give you to wear afterwards. The one plus is that her hair and make-up are also perfect.
There ya have it. My take on the first of the 2011 big awards show fashion trends. The hair and make-up has all been toned down. The shiny metallic trend seems to have subsided. Ruffles have also disappeared. Dark green is in , for now anyways. What’s next?
