Golden Globe Gowns! (and some other stuff)

I love watching red carpet events. I'd rather watch the red carpet than the awards themselves!

My favourite from the night was:
Zooey Deschenel in Prada!

I thought it was fun, very her with a kind of retro vibe, and flattering. It was one of the most memorable dresses of the night and kudos to her for wearing something that obviously made her happy!

Emily Blunt:
For some unknown reason, the Elders of the Internet are withholding all pictures of Emily Blunt in this fabulous Elie Saab gown except this one!
I actually thought she looked lovely walking out to present.
Way to go! 

I can't quite decide on Sofia Vergara...
on the one hand she looks fabulous and on the other I feel like I could just snap her like a twig. Don't you just want to pinch her knees and watch her fall over?  This Vera Wang dress is a gorgeous colour though. 

And now on to the disappointments...

Reese Witherspoon - couldn't walk, she needed help to get up the one step to the etalk! interview booth!!  For someone who champions women's empowerment and launched the Women's Empowerment Bracelet for Avon I think wearing a dress (designed by a man *cough*Zac Posen*cough*) that inhibits one's ability to move is disappointing. 
How did she sit and breathe all night?! 
That aside there's something wonky with the boob area of the dress and, over all, she looks like a vase.

Lea Michelle in Marchesa kinda looked trashy.  
I'm just not a fan of the skanky figure skater/JLo MMVAs strategically placed sequins look. I will say this though, she's got a killer smile and rocked the dress with confidence!

Tilda Swinton in in Jill Sander
"Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change" pretty much sums up how I feel about Tilda Swinton's fashion choices.  Sadly, this is one of the better dresses I've seen her in...although it doesn't take much to improve on a black garbage bag (remember the 2008 Oscars)
Who was on your best dressed list?
Any dresses you couldn't stand?

And, thoughts on Ricky Gervais' suit ?!
It makes me think of Hugh Hefner's silk pajama suits:
see! it totally does, right?!

Best Gervais line of the night:
"Nervous? Don't be. This isn't about you," he said. "Tonight, you get Britain's biggest comedian hosting the world's second biggest award show on America's third biggest network. Oh, sorry, fourth. It's fourth."

Best Speach:
Michelle Williams

Best Blooper:
Julianne Moore and Rob Lowe with the broken teleprompter

Best Presentation:
William H. Macy & Felicity Huffman


  1. Where to start? That Tilda Swanton is the strangest looking woman I've ever seen. Good thing she's talented. Reese, is it the marriage? You always looked good. Until now.

  2. Ok, I didn't watch, but I did look at a few photos this morning, because I love the dresses. Reese Witherspoon's looks really odd. It's like the top is way too small for the rest of the dress. It's not her fault (except for picking the dress), because it looks like it was made wonky.

    Tilda - she has a bird-like look to her. Maybe it's the hair...I confuse it for a tuft of feathers. Did not like the dress.

    I really liked the dress Angelina Joli wore. It was white with red at the top and she had a red bag. I thought it was lovely and she looked beautiful.

    Ok, that's my opinion. Not that I should be judging these people and their dresses, because have you seen the bridesmaid dresses I've worn in the past? Not so pretty, I tell ya. ;-)

    1. I agree with you on Angelina, she looked stunning. Those red lips with the dress and bag; absolutely perfect!

  3. I watched it ! I was up until five. Not because of the Golden Globes of course, but they kept me company. Angelina was really wonderful, and I thought the exact same thing about Lea Michele's dress - figure skater!! Being an ex-figure skater myself, I know about those kind of costumes. Sofia Vergara is so fun that she can wear what she wants. And I adore Tilda, even when she makes bad choices.

    1. Did you see that movie Tilda did in Italian. I haven't yet, but I heard she spoke Italian very well.
