Anyone who knows me can tell you I have a few favorite pleasures in life: sequins, popcorn, the French Alps, Tory Burch flats-- to name a few. However, my all time favorite moments on television can be described in 3 words: award show season. My first college roommates have all witnessed the amount of joy I feel the morning of an awards' show-- I've even been known to go into song expressing my delight in anticipation of the evening: actresses yearning to leave their stamp on red carpet history. The glitz, the glamour, the fluff, the hair, the jewels, the tulle-- all coalescing together to form gowns & looks to be remembered for years!
Last night did not disappoint. After years of yawning at a sea of strapless dresses & seen-before looks, the ladies were out to make a statement at the 68th Annual Golden Globes. While the men had their football us ladies enjoyed the fashion playoffs being displayed as each gown made its way down one of the world's most famous runways. Pops of color, open backs, & sparkle always makes for an interesting night!
Best Dressed
I had a hard time narrowing down this year because I had a lot of looks I really enjoyed: Olivia Wilde in a dazzling chocolate Marchesa gown, Angelina's stylish Versace number, Claire Danes in a hot backless Calvin Klein, & Mila Kunis in a one-shouldered Vera Wang.
If I have to pick I was only able to narrow it down to two. From the awards' show vets I pick Anne Hathaway (with Rachel Zoe on her side she really can do no wrong). I can't begin to explain how much I love this dress other than: I want it. The gaga-esque shoulders, plunging back, wavy hair, neutral tone, & sequins all came together for one of the most flawless looks of the evening. Second, from the pack of newbies swarming the carpet I would have to choose Emma Stone, who if you saw her quirkiness in Easy A you wouldn't have necessarily pinpointed her as a fashion maven. Boy was I wrong. Her Calvin Klein number stole my heart (I covet it as well.. probably more practical than Anne's Armani number). The structured short sleeves, perfect open back, & coral color was a all-around-awesome combination for the fledgling actress.
Best in Shoe
No one can ignore the crystal encrusted Brian Atwood stunners Megan Fox was rocking with her blush colored Armani Prive dress-- had to point them out!
Least Fave
I couldn't resist because at this point she's so easy to pick on, but nominee Helena Bonham Carter even admitted herself she was dressing to please her 12 year old.. which needless to say probably doesn't do her any favors. While I have a growing appreciation for designer Vivienne Westwood's funky prints & silhouettes-- I think they are better suited for the runway & editorials versus red carpets.
Jennifer Love Hewitt. Why do you continue to do this to me? I can only say: prom & too much.
And I have to mention Lea Michelle's bubble-gum pink Oscar de la Renta gown just really didn't do it for me... then again I had pretty high expectations after her showstopping de la Renta from last year.
When Bad Hair Happens to Good People
Another small anecdote: I heart Sandra Bullock. In my eyes she is the end-all-be-all of Hollywood actresses. After her flawless trio of awards' season gowns from 2010 she deserved a fashion Oscar. & while I did love the pale pink, jeweled Jenni Packman dress she wore last night I just couldn't get over her exessive bangs (especially from a profile view). I just thought it was too much hair for such a pretty, light, & flowy gown.
I also usually love Carrie Underwood's all over looks on the red carpet. I think she has brought such sophistication & elegance to the country music world. Last night I wanted to focus on her beautiful Badgley Mischka gown so badly but was so distracted by the flat pieces of hair she had surrounding her face-- it was barely better than prom hair if you ask me.
Teetering Two
Last but not least I cannot ignore two of my usual favorites on the red carpet: Natalie Portman & Michelle Williams. I couldn't rationalize putting them in either my faves or dislike categories because I did appreciate their looks but didn't love them for this particular occasion. I was so looking forward to seeing what Natalie was going to bring to the carpet & was slightly disappointed by the Viktor & Rolf gown she chose, especially as the picked-to-win (and did win) contender for Best Actress in a Drama. I wasn't a huge fan the of red sequined rose however I love how she took a risk. Michelle Williams on the other had looked adorable in her Valentino- 60s inspired gown & pixie haircut. The whole look works perfectly together but I would have loved it more at a premiere or press junket but not at the Globes.
Under the Radar
Ok I lied. I couldn't just pick 2 favorites. There was one young starlet who was a presenter last night that I wish we would have seen more of because she looked dazzling. Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester was jaw droppingly gorgeous last night in her nude Burberry gown. The fabric was so yummy I wish I could touch it! Such a great way to represent the 20 somethings out there!
