There were a lot of different looks and others that displayed continuity among their peers at the 68th Annual Golden Globes. It seems as though the color to shine in was emerald. Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Elisabeth Moss were among a few sporting a beautiful green gown.
However, I don’t think that the actual structure of Angelina’s gown was very fitting on her. There seemed to be too much material covering her waif-like figure and I don’t like where it cinched at the waist nor did I like how the skirt of the dress hung in one, long piece.
Eva Longoria looked amazing in a Zac Posen gown. Although black and simple, it hugged her body in all the right places and her neatly swept-back hair topped off the look.
One of my least favorite looks of the night was the red trashy number on January Jones. Really?! You’re at a high-class award show which means you’re expected to look glamorous yet respectable. This dress by Versace did not embrace either criteria. This boob-baring blunder of bad taste (good use of alliteration, huh?) raised brows and took away from her beauty. Aside from the exposure that the dress allowed, it looked too small up top and was oddly fitted. Also, I was not a fan of the long, fringy skirt with a cropped layer hanging in the front. An all around bad look. However, red is a good color on her but just not this dress!
Anne Hathaway’s dress reminded me of Angelina Jolie’s, just in a different color. I have to say, the defined shoulders on this dress on her frame along with the high level of modesty that the dress endures is not something I enjoy. The sleek, straight simplicity of the dress and its long sleeves and high horizontal neckline is just not cutting it for me. I don’t like the silhouette of these kinds of dresses. I know a lot of people liked it but I couldn’t agree.
I thought that Jennifer Lopez looked really elegant in her bright white Zuhair Murad gown but it veered a bit from her usual style. I thought it was a refreshing look for her. I would have liked to have seen something more feminine and tossled done with her hair, though.
My choice for worst look of the night is undoubtedly going to Helena Bonham Carter. This disastrous number is by Vivienne Westwood, and although her designs are known for being expectedly eccentric, the mismatched Christmas color-themed shoes and the wild hair took this look from different to unnecessary and confusing.
I actually saw a lot of variations on pink as well. For example, Julianne Moore, Claire Danes, and Lea Michelle all sported this girly hue. Although many disagreed, I think that Lea Michelle looked good and the artsy shape to her gown was beautiful. Claire Danes’ fair complexion and blonde hair carried the shade of pink perfectly that she chose by Calvin Klein. Both were well-played, but unfortunately, Julianne Moore did it all wrong.
Here are a handful of other note-worthy looks that were nailed and others that just failed:
Michelle Williams, retro ridiculous.
Natalie Portman, a maternal look executed perfectly.
Scarlett Johansson, flutter sleeves and flesh tone fabrics don’t fly.
Halle Berry, half & half? Looks like she got halfway dressed and then became disoriented and gave up.
Emma Stone, did you wear your dress into the spray tanning booth, too?
Megan Fox, the name says it all!
Olivia Wilde, favorite look of the night! Chocolate brown Marchesa ballgown; amazing!
Sandra Bullock, 1992 wants its look back.
Carrie Underwood, breathtaking and stunning.
Heidi Klum, the bombshell who can’t get it right lately, even in my favorite, Marc Jacobs.
