Last night was the Golden Globes, Hollywood’s biggest party of the year, and the host for the party was none other than perhaps a little sloppy (and maybe a little stiff) Ricky Gervais. The winners weren’t overly surprising, and either was the telecast, or the Red Carpet.
There were some winners: George, Meryl, the Descendants… and then there were some real winners…. on to the carpet!
Best Dressed: I can’t recall the last movie that featured more than Salma’s voice, but she was a welcomed addition to the Red Carpet. She shined brightly in beaded Gucci.

Maybe their Daughter Picked their Dress, but Still Best Dressed: Jessica Alba, the mother to two daughters, was beautiful in a lavender hued Gucci dress. I am sure her stylist picked it out, but this is the dress of every little girl’s dreams.

Rumor has is Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr’s daughter did pick out this dress, and I love it. SMG wore Monique Lhuillier for a triumphant and bold return to the Red Carpet.

Best Color Story: Better in Red
Angelina (Versace), Natalie (Lanvin), Emma (Lanvin), Viola (Emilio Pucci), Tina (Oscar de la Renta)
In varying degrees these leading ladies chose red for the Red Carpet moment: the look was modern, glamorous, deco-dent, sweeping and glamorous.
Now, it’s time to get into the more uncomfortable portion of the review, the ladies whose dresses made them look uncomfortable:
These stars are all mega-watt or at least on their way to becoming so, and their dresses were either a little too tight, a little too loose, or way too loose. Can someone find a stylist?

Rounding out the bottom, the worst fits and the worst dressed:
I get that Reese was supposed to be va-va-voom in this dress, but instead it was somewhat dead on arrival, poorly fitting it missed the Jessica Rabbit mark.

I am terrified of Lea Michelle’s dress – the whole look is so severe and attack of the Spider Woman. She is rather lovely when paired down, and this whole ensemble overpowers her from bouffant head to toe.

What did you think of the show? And what did you think of the ceremony? Who were your best dressed?
