So, I’m in paradise…without a tv.  So I was not able to watch the Golden Globes, but that doesn’t mean I can’t review the fashion! :) A little best and worst dressed (and a lot in between) to kick off your morning:

For the first time in forever, I don’t think I was bowled over with a clear “best dressed” favorite! There were a bunch I “liked”, but nothing that totally rocked my world. Sienna Miller looks fabulous and unique- especially love the hair and makeup. And Naomi Watts looked amazing in this canary sheath with snake necklace. Although I feel like perhaps I’ve seen a version of this on her before? Hey if it works, don’t mess with it…

Any Adams’ dress looks like it was made specifically for her body (and maybe it was)- flawless fit and I love the cut, but perhaps it would have REALLY been amazing in a bolder color- emerald? I’d like a bigger earring with this as well since the rest is so simple. And Julia Louis Dreyfus always nails it- this white one shouldered gown with the straight hair and drop earrings is sensational on her.

Viola Davis is typically a red carpet star, and this red dress looks great on her- also looking great in red was Allison Janney

I wish Julianne Moore’s hair was up or styled differently because this dress is KILLER. And shockingly, I looooove Kelly Osbourne’s navy jeweled number!

Robin Wright looks so edgy cool (which she exudes naturally).  Love the separates, but wish there was a funky necklace or a big cuff for accent (I know she wouldn’t do big earrings and they would look all wrong on her). Emma Stone also went edgy in a jumpsuit- which is SOOOOOO close, but that bow/train situation keeps it from completely working for me. Her hair and makeup is SPOT ON (and makes me more convinced I need to shop my hair).

How adorable are Eddie Redmayne and his wife? I LOVE his tux jacket. LOVE LOVE LOVE.  And Anna Faris and Chris Pratt look so lovely!!! I think she got a new stylist and stopped getting lip injections and now looks natural and really pretty!

Okay, so am I the ONLY one who hates Amal’s gloves??? The dress, earrings and hair are all so pretty and the white satin gloves just kill it for me.  George, of course, looks dashing.  Jen and Justin looked good too- she looked sleek and chic is black with her hair up.

I skimmed this pic and then went back because I ADORE Calista’s dress. Amazing! And since she made me think of Ally McBeal which made me think of lawyer shows which lead me to my current The Good Wife obsession (so late to the game on this one) I had to add in Christine Baranski who always looks so chic (and her clothes on the show? Insane.)

So Jessica Chastain- almost??? I couldn’t help but see the connection between her dress and one of the WORST of the night, Lana Del Ray (who looks like Priscilla Presley channeling a mermaid in the 70’s).  I’ve just never been a fan of these pleated gowns. Jessica does look stunning, and in person I’d probably gush.  Jury is still out.  Did it look good on TV?

From the Trying Too Hard Files, may I present Kate Hudson and J. Lo. Particularly J. Lo who I feel like all of the sudden has been hell bent to prove she’s not getting older. Except…time.

Emily Blunt shows us how to do white with cut out while Rosamund Pike shows us absolutely how to NOT. Holy unflattering dress!! It’s too droopy and loose and weird!! So sad, because she’s such a  stunner.

Reese looked pretty but I was a tiny bit bored (nothing can beat her red carpet appearance at the 2007 Oscars with surprise BANGS and that purple Nina Ricci. SIGH. Kate Beckinsale is one the prettiest women in Hollywood and I love this dress, but the hair is a tad prom for me.

Allison Williams looks terrifying in this picture.  Her hair and makeup are too severe, but girl knows how to rock a ball gown!  Whoever put that awkward leather belt on Kate Mara and gave her that Carol Brady haircut needs to be put in time out.

If you are looking for inspiration for pale, frumpy gowns look no further than Amanda Peet (who NEEDS a new stylist so badly, always one of the worst dressed) and Kristin Wiig. Just horrible.

I can’t believe Lupita is one of my bad picks, but I do not love this floral applique dress. Sad face.  And Ruth Wilson’s dress is just strange- the cut is stiff, the pattern odd.  I dig the color, but NO. Side note, is her show good?? Apparently so since it and she won last night!

OH CHRIST. I am so sad about this Tiny Fey situation.  She may be funny, but that dress is not. Also Amy Poehler’s frumpy blue number is baffling!  Amy’s dress on stage was WAY WAY better but Tina’s not so much.

Kerry washington, what is the fresh hell is this dress? YIKES! Same goes for you Claire Danes! I never understand the thought process behind gowns like this.

OK, the WORST. Zosia Mamet and Alan Cumming. Especially Alan (whom I love)- that flesh suit is just creeeeeeeeepy!

Did I miss anyone? Your thoughts?

AMMENDMENT: Just saw Gwyneth Paltrow dress. WINNER. Total fave. Love the bright pink.



And yes, Kiera Knightley looked absolutely tragic. Because you are pregnant does not mean you need to dress like Little House on the (Chanel) Prairie.
