Golden Globes Recap -- The Good, The Bad, and the Downright UGLY!

Awards season -- the Superbowl of fashion. Except soo much more entertaining and worthwhile. And while I must admit that I didn't watch the entire show, (hello, Downton Abbey!) I made sure to tune into the red carpet special with my popcorn in hand and sparkling grape juice in the other. (It had been a rough night the night before... don't ask.)

Let's start off with the good. Jessica Alba was best dressed in my mind. She looked STUNNING in Oscar de la Renta. Hair? Perfect. Makeup? The ideal balance between glam and girl next door. So what if her clutch looked like you would use it to dust your grandmother's antiques, that Harry Winston necklace made you forget all about it.


I'm pretty sure everyone else would argue that Kate Hudson was best dressed. While she also looked beautiful and I love the idea of a belted dress, there was just something a bit off for me. Something a little too constricting about the neckline. Hm.


Next we have Sofia Vergara. Ugh -- another sequin mermaid number with a sweetheart neckline? YAWN.


Claire Danes. I'm still convinced she had some work done on her face within the last few years but THE WOMAN JUST HAD A BABY IN DECEMBER FOR GODS SAKE. What do these Hollywood starlets have in those Starbucks cups they're always running around with? Whatever it is, I need it and I need it fast. I can only hope to look this good BEFORE giving birth. Forget about one month after. Bitch.


Oh Jennifer Lawrence, you're so pretty but this dress is so terrible. I'm sure if there were any straight men watching the Globes last night they were only doing so because your dress looked one arm-raise away from taking a tumble down your chest.


At first glance I hated this Naeen Khan dress. But after seeing other pictures of it, I've changed my mind. And Nicole really looks great. See what a healthy weight does for a girl??


Another shocker -- JLo in something that almost shows her naughty bits. Although if I had a rockin' body like hers, I'd probably want to show it off too.


Stacy Kiebler in Armani Prive was slightly disappointing but then I remembered she gets to go home with George Clooney every night. Rock on with your bad self, Stace (can I call you Stace?) It doesn't matter what you wear, you're dating one of the most gorgeous men on earth.


Amy Adams + Marchesa = LOVE. Normally when one wears a dress that perfectly matches their skin tone, it's disastrous. Not so with this one. She perfectly topped it off with an old Hollywood glam hairdo. This is what the Globes is all about, my dears.


And because we started off with the best, why not end with the worst. I can't believe these words are about to come out of my mouth, but apparently even Monique Lhuillier makes mistakes sometimes. It looks like New Year's Eve threw up all over Julianne's wedding dress. WOOF.


So there you have it. My incredibly shallow take on last night's awards. Who would you vote best/worst dressed?

  1. Great picks! Jessica Alba can do no wrong in my book - she looked especially gorgeous last night. I loved Ann Hathaway's dress - it was very feminine and suited her haircut well.

    Nicole Ritchie's dress might have been pretty but her makeup was a huge disaster!

  2. Jessica Alba and Anne Hathaway were my favorites! Lena Dunham was top on my worst dressed list that dress was hideous!
