The Best and worst of the 2012 Golden Globes

I’m no fashion critic, and based on the conversations I’ve been having with people around the office today, my opinions are wildly varying from others. But, I must share them either way. I look forward to award shows all year round as I literally get giddy when I see everyone all dressed up to perfection. So let’s kick it off shall we? Let’s start with my personal favorite of the night… drum roll please…

Now, I basically have the world’s biggest girl crush on Kate Beckinsale. And I mean, who wouldn’t?! Look at her! She is stunning from head to toe while keeping her look simply classic. She’s not over doing it with the accessories and that is a big plus these days. Her skin doesn’t look orange, her hair isn’t too poofed, her makeup is very soft. She just looks amazing to me. She was by far my favorite look of the night.

And now for some honorable mentions: (and some not-so-honorable mentions).

A lot of people didn’t seem to like Salma Hayek’s look or dress, but I thought she looked incredible. She may be channeling the Terminator, but to me she looked hot. Also worth mentioning, Emma Stone, Jessica Alba, and Heidi Klum. Loved their looks!

Unfortunately, and I’m sad to say this… my worst dressed of the night goes to…….

Oh Sarah. Poor…sweet Sarah. I know her daughter picked out the dress, but her baby is like what, one, maybe two years old? Would she really even notice if you opted for something else? This look is terrible. It looks like the designer ruined her dress but at the very last minute and she didn’t have time to pick out anything else. She’s usually so classy and well dressed! I’m sad.

Madonna… we get it, you’re Madonna. You’re quircky. You have “nice arms.” We get it. Now will you please dress your age.

Another one that upset me. Jessica, what happened here? You look like you borrowed Betty White’s wedding dress from the Proposal. That’s enough, give it back now.

This look doesn’t impress me from Natalie Portman. It looks like the designer had way too much fabric left over and didn’t know what else to do with it but pin it at her side. The fit in her midsection is just all wrong for me. I don’t love this.

A big trend I noticed on the red carpet last night, aside from headbands, belts! A lot of actresses had embellished waists. Frieda Pinto also rocked a belt with her dress last night. I’m not 100% certain how I feel about this trend yet, but it doesn’t ruin any of these looks for me, so it must be ok!

So how did I do? Who were your best and worst dressed from the red carpet last night?

  1. My favourites are Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang (she looked breathtakingly stunning). Jenna Dewan in Maria Lucia Hohan (perfection from head to toe). Dianna Agron in Giles Deacon (a very risky choice but it made her look great). Salma Hayek in Gucci (amazing). Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace (she looked increadible). Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackerman (only Tilda is able to pull it off) and Nicole Kidman in Atelier Versace (Nicole looks absolutely flawless).
