- Golden Globes red carpet: as it happenedphotos
Style Blog checked out all the red carpet looks from the 68thAnnual Golden Globes Awards this week. Here’s our verdict on whonailed it and who didn’t!
Claire Danes Claire was a vision of simplicity and chicness in her pink silkCalvin Klein halter-necked dress. Claire didn’t look over-done andher choice was age appropriate. Her hair and the Fred Leightonjewels she wore were perfect, as was her hot “man-candy” intow!
Sandra Bullock Sandra looked beautiful in a romantic, boho, one-shouldered palepink beaded Jenny Packham dress that had a vintage look about it.we loved her accessories and also the long Chrissie Hynde-looking’60s fringe. Sandy looked like a cool ’60s muse. Very AnitaPallenburg or Marianne Faithful. we know many didn’t get her look,but we loved it all the same.
Angelina Jolie Angelina looked ridiculously beautiful in a sparkling emeraldgreen, long-sleeved Atelier Versace dress. Her frock also had avintage feel to it. we also loved her hair and make up.Perfection.
Julianne Moore Julianne looked incredible in a pink one-shouldered Lanvin dresscomplemented by Bulgari jewels. This woman always looksimmaculate.
Anne Hathaway Anne Hathaway looked stunning in a backless, sparkly amber coloureddress that gave “deep shoulder pad action” by Giorgio Armani Prive.Krystal Carrington would have loved this dress! Anne’s hair wasbeautiful and so too the Van Cleef & Arpels jewels.The beigycolour of the dress was a bit blah though and didn’t pop on the redcarpet.
Natalie Portman Pregnant golden girl Natalie Portman scooped up the award for bestdramatic leading actress for her performance in Black Swan. Ittruly was Nat’s night to shine. Hollywood’s darling wore anempire-line, pale pink Viktor & Rolf gown that featured a redcrystal beaded rose on the bodice. The look was matched up with ared clutch bag and Tiffany & co jewels. while we love Natalieand thought she looked lovely, we weren’t totally blown away by herlook.
We were bored with:
Megan Fox Megan looked immaculate enough in a blush-toned Armani Privee dressthat showed off her incredible body, but it was all a bit a bitbland on her. we loved the Brian Atwood shoes, mind! It’s such ashame that Megan is looking more and more alien-like thanks to heralleged plastic surgery addiction. Megs was a naturally pretty girlbefore, but now she is looking more like the long lost daughter ofJocelyn Wildenstein.
Jennifer Lopez J Lo looked nice enough and always pulls herself together well. Weloved her hair in a sleek ponytail too. some believe the palecoloured Zuhair Murad gown that featured a sheer tulle capelet madeher look a bit matronly, but we still think she looked stunning. Wewould have preferred seeing our fave diva in something with a bitmore “look at me”!
Lea Michele Sure, Lea looked pretty but we weren’t really fans of thebubble-gum “prom-night” Oscar de la Renta frock she wore. There wasjust too much going on with all the folds and frilly flounces, itwas confusing. Lea’s hair was also far too messy for this overlyfussy look.
Nicole Kidman There was nothing to fault Nic in the cream, simple one-shoulderedPrada gown with the bow detail, but it just simply didn’t rock ourworld. Come on Nicole, we know you can do better than this!
We liked because it’s just “so fashion”:
Scarlett Johansson Scarlett always looks beautiful and she looked sophisticated inthis v-necked cream beaded Elie Saab dress that featured flutterysleeves. we would have preferred her hair down as the up-do madeher look a lot older than her years.
Leighton Meester (from Gossip Girl) Leighton wore a nude coloured high-necked beaded dress by BurberryProrsum, with long-sleeves being a fashion forward look favoured byquite a few that night. we thought she looked beautiful. we arecoveting her Jimmy Choo shoes and super cute Louis Vuitton bag!
Tilda Swinton Ahhhh Tilda! she never fails to stir it all up! Tilda is afashionista and a complete non-conformist. Hollywood and thegeneral public just don’t get her one bit! we love Tilda becauseshe takes risks and rebels. Tilda wore a shirt and a skirt by JilSander and topped it off with Fred Leighton jewels.
We didn’t “get it”:
Michelle Williams Michelle looks beautiful as always and we love her pixie/gamine MiaFarrow hair. But as for the dress! Michelle wore a daisy-printedValentino dress that had flounces down the side and shellembellishments on the straps. Michelle was obviously going for a’60s bohemian look but it wasn’t appropriate for the red carpet andthe terrible nude colour washed her out!
On the edge of crass:
January Jones she looked beautiful in a sexy red Versace dress that featured acut-out at the bodice which was pretty racy and probably providedfar too much flesh on show. Top marks for her elegant hair, make upand toned back accessories though!
Christina Aguilera Christina’s black lace/nude fish-tailed dress looked tacky on her,especially with her breasts popping out the side and front. Sheshould stick to her “Candyman” retro ’40s look as it suits her farbetter.
Sofia Vergara The red Vera Wang number was just too much on Sofia! It looked morelike something Dolly wore in “Best little Whorehouse in Texas”Yikes!
Heidi Klum The tribal-looking Marc Jacobs dress on Heidi would have beenbetter off worn at a BBQ. It also looks like poor Heidi was havinga bad hair day too!
Halle Berry: Halle is such a beautiful woman and we love her when her hair iscut short like this. she wore a black, vintage Nina Ricci bustierdress that had a mini skirt and also a long tulle train. It wasvery Stephanie Seymore circa the early-mid ’90s. while it lookedsexy, it was also rather tacky. It would be a better choice to wearat the Grammys.
Best Scarlett O’Hara impression:
Catherine Zeta-Jones CZJ looked very dramatic in a huge strapless ball gown by MoniqueL’Hullier and festooned with Van Cleef and Arpels jewellery. Thedark green colour of the dress looked incredible on her. It wasvery old-school Hollywood glamour and we imagined her at the top ofthe staircase in the movie Gone With The Wind.
Christina Hendricks Everything about Christina is OTT – the insane huge red hair, theover-inflated bust and lips, the larger than life va-va voomhour-glass bod! Wearing a one-shouldered flame-red Romona Kevezagown that featured a giant flower on the shoulder, Christina lookedmore like a drag queen. The dress itself was beautiful, but themassive flower was total overkill. Christina’s dress reminded us ofthe dress that we had Bernadine Oliver-Kerby wear at the QantasMedia Awards last year, except Christina’s version was oncrack!
Helena Bonham-Carter Helena is completely bonkers! and we love her for this! Helenadidn’t fail to shock us in a crazy tulle number by VivienneWestwood with mismatched shoes (one green and the other one red)and an insane hair-do to boot!
Johnny Depp looked ridiculously hot in Ralph Lauren Black Label.Wow! we LOVE him so much!
Mark Wahlberg is a GOD! he is unbelievably cute (even with the”man fur”).
Jake Gyllenhall looked incredibly handsome in Burberry.
Versace-wearing Brad Pitt looked pretty cute too, although wehated his sunglasses that made him look like a sleazy cocainedealer.
Robert Pattinson looked sultry in Gucci.
Hottie Zac Efron has a sexy new military-looking haircut. Boy ishe vain though!
Prada-clad Robert Downey Jr is always super cute and we love hismischievousness nature.
John Hamm (from Mad Men) and James Franco both looked smokinglyhot on the night.
Wearing Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Bale didn’t actually lookso great. we hated his long hair and the “Grizzly Adams” fullbeard. we prefer him in his “American Psycho” look!
The Wrap up:
Some chose to wear black on the night and sure, it’s simple andchic, but it’s so boring and dull on the red carpet.
On the other hand, emerald greens, reds, pinks and neutral nudesruled the roost this year and there were lots of refreshing fashionrisk-takers stamping their own individuality on the red carpet.
Hooray for awards season!
