I have a guilty confession. I just LOVE looking at the dresses on women attending red carpet award shows! Once I took a quiz where they displayed dresses, and I was able to actually indicate who wore them. I know. Embarrassing!
I also take great joy in reading the critiques of star's outfits. Sometimes I agree wholeheartedly and sometimes I disagree. I thought it would be fun to play fashion police with this year's Golden Globe stars! In honor of Blue Monday, I am starting with the starlets clad in blue. All of these photos are scarfed from MSN's website coverage of the event. Credit goes to AP and Wire photographers.
This first dress is a lovely confection in dark blue worn by the gorgeous Anne Hathaway. She looks like a princess, as she has often portrayed a princess. My only criticism is the severe hairstyle, which was also sported by several other starlets. I don't like it.
Mary Louise Parker is wearing a beautiful form fitting royal blue gown. I think it is stunning on her! But oh dear, could she have been bothered to run a hairbrush through that mane before stepping out? She also could have gone with a lighter hair color as this seems too matte black.
Here is another starlet in a dress that is in a blue and black print. I have to wonder why Maggie Gyllenhal had to swipe a dress from her grandmother's closet and have it altered for the event. I am not impressed.
I couldn't just show dresses in blue! This is too much fun! Next up is Amy Adams in a gorgeous black dress that fits her just right. My only criticism is that the actress wore something that contrasts too sharply with her porcelain complexion. She is such a natural beauty and I think that some actual color would have been lovely on her. She could also have done better with her hair.
I have always adored Drew Barrymore. I think the dress is cute, and I am totally loving her hair!
Elizabeth Banks is another natural beauty, and her hair is so cute here. I like the style of the dress, but could it have been cut from different fabric than her chenille bedspread? A little color would have been pretty too. Still, I rather like the dress.
Beyonce Knowles has the most gorgeous curvy figure and I just love how this dress is styled to accentuate her hourglass figure! Spot on!
It's hard to find a dress for a teenager that is both age appropriate and still sophisticated, but I think Miley Cyrus hits it here! Again, I think of a little princess with this style. Adorable!
This is one of my faves for the night. Oh how I envy Brooke Burke's curvy figure, and this dress fits it like a glove without being sleazy.
My favorite of the night though would have to be Kyra Sedgwick in this form fitting red dress. Her hair is understated and lovely as well. Very well done!
Then there were some beauties who just seemed to kind of miss it. Angelina Jolie is one of the most beautiful women in the world, yet she wears this shapeless shift. She also wore a similarly shapeless, non-stunning frock to the People's Choice award. The looseness is going to fuel pregnancy rumors in the gossip rags. Maybe its simply that she bore twins a few months back! Still, she could have done better.
And Brad needs to lose that pornstache!
Yikes, Cameron Diaz, when did you last have your roots done? A year ago? I am sure this star can afford a hairdresser so that she could have showed up with hair that actually looked like she hadn't just got up. What is with that ill fitting pink dress and the black shoes? She can, and has done a lot better.
Not sure what image Jennifer Lopez is trying to get across here, but she just looks sleazy. Oh my goodness, a fat roll! Now that doesn't bother me a bit, heck the women recently bore twins and she is in fabulous shape, but Hollywood doesn't allow that sort of thing. Hmmm, seems the oft gossiped about wedding ring is missing again!
This tacky get up just made me utter, what on earth was she thinking? Marissa Tomei bared her bod in The Wrestler, so we know she has a shape. You just can't see it here in this concoction that even a septugenarian wouldn't be caught dead wearing.
The alltime award for Most Horrible Outfit of the Night and the What the Hell? award goes to Renee Zellweger. I don't even have words for how tacky she looks here! Ewww! Almost makes me want to take a bath! The hair is awful, the makeup is awful, but there are just no words for the toplessness implied here. Yes, you can see she is wearing a flesh colored bra, but still. NASTY! A double THUMBS DOWN!
Well this was fun! Who got your vote for the best and worst outfits of the night?
