The 2012 Golden Globes is the first major, major awards show of each year - which means it's the first major opportunity for stars to either stun us - or look like a total mess. the Globes are a mixture of television and movies so it's a full house with many different perspectives on fashion... you know. a few awkward moments, a few hot messes, a few 'omg i'm never eating again' moments...and ALTHOUGH...Tilda was there this year, she did NOT present any awards for best televisual series, sadly.
so without further ado, here are my picks for best and worst dressed!
1. Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace & Christian Louboutin clutch
I MEAN...COME ON. Angelina Jolie - making all other women irrelevant, as usual. this Atelier Versace dress is tailored within an inch of its life, accentuating Angie's perfect bod, and the slit is a sexy touch paired with a modest neckline. the gown looks deceivingly pink, but it's actually a cream colored silk...the red lapel and the red carpet are throwing your eyes off in pictures and making the silk of the body look pink...so no, she's not channeling Valentine's Day. although even if she was, who cares? her makeup is stunning, her bun is FLAWLESS - and she's the only woman in the world who can pull of a dress like this ...and have her tattoos showing. no doubt, best dressed, by far.
2. Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci
Rooney was very obviously, incredibly nervous, but this beautiful, simple, almost minimalistic Nina Ricci gown was a show-stopper. paired with her uber-thin Lisbeth bod, her sharp features, the simple ponytail, her pale skin, and almost no accessories at all - Rooney is perfection. it's just the right amount of edgy and feminism together.
3. Claire Danes
Claire looked elegant and edgy in this great J.Mendel gown last night, showing off her stunning body and well-toned back. the sihloutte is perfect for her and the red lipstick compliments the art deco vibe of the dress beautifully.
4. Emma Stone in Lanvin & Lanvin jewels & Cartier clutch
beautiful color, beautiful fit, and perfectly edgy/fresh/young for the up and coming superstar Emma Stone. when she was interviewing with Ryan Seacrest (ugh), she seemed so excited about her dress, she loved the colors, and it's cool to see a star so excited about getting dressed. she looked beautiful!
5. Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann & Fred Leighton jewels
oh Tilda, you're so fierce. this ice blue Haider Ackermann was absolutely flawless on the eccentric actress who was nominated last night - and the most charming moment, for anyone who was watching the red carpet arrivals, if you caught Tilda getting out of her car, you also caught Haider in the backseat with her, giving her a kiss for good luck. so sweet! i love that Tilda always stays true to herself and i also love that Haider was there to personally dress his muse.
honorable mentions: Frieda Pinto (Prada), Natalie Portman (Lanvin), Jessica Biel (Elie Saab), Selma Hayek (Gucci), Julianne Moore (Chanel), Kate Beckensale (Cavalli), Nicole Richie (Julian Macdonald), Katherine McPhee (custom Donna Karan), Michelle Williams (Jason Wu)
best accessory & best corset: Madonna's glove (!!!) in Reem Acra & Andrea Riseborough in Westwood
best couture moment: Dianna Agron in Giles
and now...the WORST! (in no particular order!)
in Zac Posen
you guys, this is southern belle gone wrong. the crazy, piecey hair, the bodice which i'm positive her boobs are going to fly out of at any second...it's just all wrong. she's such a pretty woman and would do better to NOT channel Jessica Rabbitt.
in Vera Wang
snoooozebutton. she wears this same dress to every single awards show. literally. she was Vera Wang in a mermaid shape to every single major red carpet. just picks a different color. IT'S SO BORING. Sofia, we get it. you have a hot body. but please try something new. the sexy latina thing you always do is getting old.
Lea Michele in Marchesa
1. she's really annoying. 2. her posing on the red carpet is more than anyone can handle. 3. she looks like an f'ing figure skater in this. 4. it is a beautiful dress that looked beautiful on the runway...but it's all wrong on this snotty brat.
in Dior Couture
i know she has no choice but to wear Dior - but that headband...she had a choice. and she should have chosen no. the dress isn't awful but i think it's a little too youthful for Charlize - who is the ultimate in sophisticated glamour. the bow and the color didn't do anything for her.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
in Monique Lhuillier
she told Seacrest that her daughter helped her pick it out. UM, OBVIOUSLY. there are no words for the trainwreck that is this dress.
in Givenchy Couture
icky fit, the neckline is all wrong for her figure, and that skinny belt isn't doing her any favors. poor choice and poor representation of Givenchy Couture.
worst dressed cast: Glee, again. sorry guys, your 15 minutes are up.
worst date of the night: Stacey Keibler, Clooney's date. every shot of her, she looked like she could not even believe her life right now. and George Clooney is for sure only about 2 months away from dropping her on her ass. like..she has to go on group dates with Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie?! no, move along, honey.
worst hair: Zooey Deschanel in custom Prada. it looks like a wig, right? or hair from a 1980's hair contest?
most lost potential: again, Nicole Kidman, in Versace (it almost looks like H&M for Versace. holy shit). you are so stunning..why do you pick such terrible dresses?! and why is your husband's blowout better than yours?!
that's a wrap! see you all for the next red carpet!!
