Golden Globe Fashions

There were many things I liked about the Golden Globes last night but I will mainly be talking about the fashion. I normally don’t get caught up in awards shows but I had been watching Launch My Line all day on Bravo so my fashion radar was up and so I flipped over to the Golden Globes. Ricky Gervais was freaking hilarious and I was seriously laughing out loud when he was up on the stage. What Paul McCartney said was funny but just reading it off his notecard didn’t make him funny. Obviously the writers had good material…just the wrong person delivering it. Now onto the fashion…

The good:
Zoe Saldana looked really pretty in her wine colored dress.
Sandra Bullock(who won for best actress in a drama) had a really pretty purple dress.
Toni Collette(who won a globe for being crazy in The United States of Tara) had a sparkly gold and cream colored dress. It showed off enough of her figure that it looked super good but not trashy. And her accent just rounded out the whole outfit. Ya know…cause accents do that! J
Sofia Vergara (who is in Modern Family) had a gorgeous dress with just a splash of red in it. It also had a really long train. So pretty!
And finally Jennifer Aniston (who was a presenter) looked gorgeous as always in just a plain black dress and her hair was just down with a little bit of curl.

The bad:
Julianna Margulies won for best actress in a drama but her dress was not pretty at all. It was a wine(ish) colored dress with a cut out but the top part of the cutout looked like it was patent leather. Not pretty.
Drew Barrymore won for Grey Gardens and she talked really crazy-like but it matched her outfit. It was a flesh-colored dress that had some crazy poofs of something coming off of her shoulder and her hip. It might have looked a little bit better if the dress wasn’t flesh colored since she is so pail and her hair is so light but nothing I can do about that!
Cher was a presenter. She wore a black corseted dress. Nothing more to say. But again…it’s Cher!
Christina Aguilera presented with Cher and she wore a really weird dress. It was two-tone, but the only place you saw the two-tone was on her right breast. Now, I think it’s one thing to want to bring more attention to your girls, but two different colors of material? No thanks!
And finally Christina Hendricks. I didn’t know who she was when I saw her on the red carpet but then I saw her come on stage when Mad Men won for something and good lord. Her dress showed all her goodies to anyone who looked. It looked like it was about to fall down. It was a pretty dress, but just didn’t look very flattering on such a big chest!

There were many more pretty and ugly dresses but those are the ones I can remember! Happy Monday to everyone!

I find it great that Cher can wear some of the most outragous outfits and well..pull it off, cause she's Cher.

Glad I miss seeing Drew Barrymore.

Great post!
