With a few bright exceptions, this year’s Golden Globes fashion was a full-on snoozefest. The carpet was full of celebs in playing-it-safe neutrals and prom-y ball gowns. The risks weren’t risky; Jennifer Lopez in a naked dress? Quelle surprise! Even Jennifer Lawrence, who usually rocks it, didn’t hit the mark this time. And can we PLEASE call it a day on mermaid gowns? Did I sit on the remote and accidentally change the channel to a Say Yes to the Dress marathon? Ladies, reign in your Ariel fantasies. Time for this trend to die.
Hollywood: I need you to step up your game before the Oscars. You are officially on notice.
Even a ho-hum year like this has its fashion moments. And here they are, my picks for the Best Dressed of the 2013 Golden Globes! (See Kim’s post on the ceremony here.)
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, obviously
Our hostesses with the most-esses did not disappoint on any level. Their onstage and red carpet looks were sleek and sexy, befitting the queens that they are. Tina accentuated her gorgeous teal sequins and black and white wiggle dress with soft, Lana Turner-esque waves, while Amy went with a classy side knot.
My favorite Amy look was her uuuuuber-sexy red carpet suit by Stella McCartney, who designed all of her outfits for the big show. The deep V, the perfectly cropped pant, the sparkly platform sandals. It’s heaven.
Tina was no slouch either in this L’Wren Scott number. The cut makes her body look redonk. And I know Kim is still dreaming about those shoes.
A post-baby Claire Danes was looking red hot in Atelier Versace. This showstopper stood out in the crowd of cream, blush, and white. My only complaint is that the bruise-colored eye makeup was laid on a little thick. Good thing her Globe win didn’t make her cry.
Ewan is as much of a classic heartthrob as Clooney. He’s like, Clooney’s rumpled and sexy younger brother – the one you probably shouldn’t get involved with but will anyway. And he was at his most rumpled and sexy Sunday night. Salmon Fishing in the YUMMY, amirite?
Isla Fisher did the neutral trend proud in a dazzling Reem Acra crown. The shade perfectly complements her peaches and cream coloring and the fit is the bomb.
Whether you thought Jodie’s Cecille B. DeMille acceptance speech was batty or touching or both, you have to agree that she was looking gorgeous in Armani. Chain mail chic.
Rachel Weisz won the carpet for me in this modern and ladylike Louis Vuitton. She manages to make polka dots and bows look elegant. It’s perfect for her. No flaws to be found.
Looking dapper as hell while sticking it to the Academy.
Naomi, you are exempt from my no-mermaid rule. This Zac Posen gown’s rich color lit her up, and the train added some much-needed drama to the night.
She’s 67. SIXTY. SEVEN. YEARS. OLD. (And in Badgley Mischka, by the way.)
KBell schooled us in maternity fashion last night. She was ethereal and lovely in this lavender Jenny Packham dress, and her updo shows off the beaded neckline detail.
Take a tall drink of water like J. Kras, pour him into a fancy tux, and see what becomes to all of his fangirls.
