Golden Globes Red Carpet Fashion 2012

Monday, January 16, 2012

It seemed as though mermaids were a big inspiration, with the metallic fabrics & fishtail silhouettes. Nudes/creams and black were also a big hit - there wasn't much color on the carpet, though there were a few pops here & there. My faves of the night were:

Claire Danes in J. Mendel (lately I've been drawn to black & white so her dress caught my eye, and I love the open back)Charlize Theron in Dior (loving the sparkly headband!)
Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace (she looks magnificent with the red lip)
Nicole Richie in Julien McDonald
Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen
As for the worst, I didn't really see anyone that was dressed that badly, but some hairstyles were a big no-no (e.g. Zooey Deschanel & her bang/sideburns and Kelly Osbourne's grayish hair dye).

There were a couple of questionable looks -- for me, I'm on the fence with these dresses:

Sarah Michelle Gellar in Monique Lhuillier, which her 2 yr-old daughter picked out by the way!
Lea Michele in Marchesa (the top part just says "ice skater" to me).
All full body red carpet shots are from MTV Style.

So who are your best & worst picks?


P.S. If you haven't seen this sh*t girls say parody (there are a bunch of them out there), you must check out this version for fashion girls! Soooo funny!

I didn't have time to watch the Golden Globes, but I'say that from everyone you posted Lea Michele looks the best. So incredible fantastic. Sexy, but classy.

Ah, love Angelina! She is a goddess and after a long time looks it too! Sarah looks so predictable, so a big "No" for me...

I really loved Emma Stone last night... then again I always love her, lol.

Sam said...

Hi dear, i also did my GG post today, I loved Charlize's gown, she made us proud :)
Also loved jessica Biel's dreamy dress. I so agree with you on the questionable choices, mine are exactly the same

Tereza {Drastic Plastic} said...

Love the selection, ladies do have style.

Jayme and Mendi said...

I loved Claire Danes and also Sophia Vergara. I so didn't like Lea's dress. You are so right about the top looks like an ice skating costume. :-)

Shutterbug said...

Such pretty dresses, but my fav one is Charlize's.

Diego R. Wyatt said...

I loved Claire Danes and Viola Davis best last night. From head to toe I feel they had the best looks and styling. Laura Dern also looked amazing. Sarah Michelle Gellar looks silly in this ocean wave dress, but I loved Lea Michele in Marchesa (not crazy about siver dresses in general). I think it would have worked better in a matter gunmetal tone.

Honestly, I wasn't a huge fan of most of the dresses. My favorite was probably Kate Beckinsale's!

LOVE Angelina's dress! But, Reese's looked like she just rolled out of bed, and not in a good way!

Anna G said...

I love Charlize's dress and her headpiece is stunning. Also the video is so hilarious! I swear I sound like that when I'm shopping and hanging with my best friend.

Elizabeth said...

Claire Danes can never to wrong. She is stunning in a very real way.

There were definitely some hits and misses, but Claire Danes was my face, by far. The back of that dress...swoon!

VintageDanielle said...

The women look great but I really wasn't WOW'd this year. Nothing really stood out for me. Hoping the later award shows won't haha

YES!!! i loveeeed Angelina's look too, her champagne gold dress with a pop of red detailing was perfect!The finishing touches of her red lippies and red clutch was done to perfection, as well.

Yes, i gott say,i didnt know what SMG was thinking when she wore that.But when you said her 2 year old daugther picked it out, i guess i can understand, lol. I guess it's a mother's love to her daughter.

I somehow liked Lea Michele's dress, despite reading some reviews on her look. I think the patterns and color combo had a nice effect on her. And Reese's smile is sooo infectious and sweet:)Love her sweet berry red dress, matches her petite figure like a glove.

I just did a post on the Golden Globes too, so check it out if you got time;)
