The Good, Bad & Horrid at the 68th Annual Golden Globes…According to Me.

January 17, 2011 • Celebrity Style, Yahoo

Initially I wasn't going to touch this and leave it up to Simona, but having sat with colleagues/friends last night watching the fashions on the red carpet, I had to add my two cents. Simona and I have very different faves this go-around. I was looking at the overall look (clothes, hair, makeup, shoes and jewelry)…not just the gown. There was no one trend or color last night which I really appreciated. Between the the colorful fashions and Ricky Gervias' side splitting comments (especially the digs at Sex and the City II), I was totally entertained. I agree with Simona in that I too loved the return of Old Hollywood glamour, but some pulled it off better than others on the red carpet.

The Good (or Great)

Olivia Wilde in Marchesa

She literally took my breathe away. Perfection from the tip of her head to her gold Loubie toes. I want bangs now.

Claire Danes in Calvin Klein Collection

Wearing the hot color of the spring season in a minimalist design, this Calvin Klein dress suits her figure beautifully.

Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive

This dress grew on me as the night wore on. At first I didn't care for it. But much like a movie that you have to think about for a few hours after you see it and really makes you think…so did this Armani Prive gown. By the end of the night I loved it. Her haircolor was perfection as was her makeup.

January Jones in Versace

OK, I know some are going to say "what are you thinking" but hear me out. January Jones is the spokeperson for Versace and normally I can't stand what she wears, but this was a "wow" moment for her. Not only did I love this dress on her, but her hair and makeup were spot on. Beautiful.

Mila Kunis in Vera Wang

I thought she looked absolutely stunning!

Elisabeth Moss in Donna Karan

I just loved this color on her. The hair and makeup were beautiful too! Bring on the green.

Emma Stone in Calvin Klein Collection

Another dress that grew on me as the night went on. In the hot color for Spring, this minimalist front with plunging back and next to no jewelry was made more beautiful by her super blond updo.

Kyra Sedgwick in Emilio Pucci

Now if you tried to put this color on almost anyone else it would fail miserably, but I think Kyra looks amazing! I also loved her jewelry which was pretty much a no-show on the red carpet last night.

Sandra Bullock in Jenny Packham

Well looking great is the best revenge and Sandra delivered. Another great case for trying bangs again. She looked comfortable and old Hollywood glam too. Good work! Jesse James, you are a MORON!

Natalie Portman in Viktor & Rolf

I almost moved her into the next catagory, but she's pregnant and did an admirable job looking red carpet worthy even when feeling like you are carrying a basketball in your gut (I know of what I speak). Then again she could wear a paper bag while reading the phone book and I'd be mezmerized. Adorbs.

The Bad (or OK)

Eva Longoria in Zac Posen

Actually I rather liked her gown, but her lack of lipcolor just ruined the whole look for me.

Scar Jo in Elie Saab

Loved the dress, but her Bride of Frankenstien hair was just too distracting and obviously not in a good way.

Nicole Kidman in Prada

Snooze. Boring. But I do think I saw her forehead move a little.

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

In my gut I new she would show up in green. And I was right. Therefore she looses for being so predictable. She also looked a little swallowed by the dress. However, she wins for being visibly into Brad Pitt. It warmed my cold heart to see them so happy.

Halle Berry in Nina Ricci

She was almost in the catagory below, but men everywhere would hate me. Um, hello…nice legs! I get why every man wants to bang her now. (Speaking of bangs that is).

Tina Fey in L'Wren Scott

You can usually count on Tina to wear navy or black, so this gown was to be expected. She did however, totally hit it out of the park with her hair and jewelry.

The So Bad it Hurts

Helena Bonham Carter in Vivienne Westwood

Well this is obvious! Mind you, she wouldn't be her if she didn't bring the crazy to the red carpet…so thanks for delivering. I called she was wearing Wivienne Westwood as soon as I saw this. Two points for me.

Chirstina Agulara in Zuhair Murad

Tacky as expected.

Christina Hendricks, Romona Keveza

Mind you, I think she can wear of red, just not this dress! First she should have pulled her hair up as it was competeing and laying over the shoulder bow. Second, it doesn't fit her well. Stylist please!

Leighton Meester in Burberry

Where Anne Hathaway pulled this look off, Leighton failed miserably. (Sorry Simona). The color drab on her and the cut is more Little House on the Prairie than old Hollywood glamor. The exposed hoochie shot didn't work for me either. Ew.

Mandy Mooore in Monique Lhuillier

Even though this particular picture doesn't show it, her hair and makeup were actually really pretty. It's just the dress that threw me. I was also suprised to find out it was Monique Lhuillier. What's with the netted neckline? Sorry Simona. We are in totaly disagreement on this one.

Michelle Williams in Valentino

I'm at a loss for words. Wrong on so many levels.

Lea Michelle in Oscar de la Renta

OK, granted something about her just annoys me, but the Pepto pink isn't working for me. Not a fan.

Jennifer Love Hewitt in Romona Keveza

Another one who annoys me. I hate the stuffy wedding dress and uptight updo.

Annette Bening

The kids might be alright, but her hair isn't! I LOVE her, but come on! How hard is it to use a brush?

Giuliana Rancic

In all fairness she was working the red carpet, but I figure if she gets to critique all the fashions tonight on Fashion Police, be prepared. This dress just showed off how painfully thin she is. A little advice; if you seriously want to get pregnant…eat a few burgers.
