The 70th annual Golden Globe Awards took place last night and hopefully you enjoyed our knee jerk reactions to the (mostly boring) red carpet. Unfortunately, there weren’t a lot of stand out looks last night, so consider this best dressed list… graded on a curve.
Still, red carpet reliables like Julianne Moore and Anne Hathaway looked grand, while surprise turns from Olivia Munn, Lucy Liu and Stacy Keibler kept things interesting.
…Mildly, at least.
Tina Fey wore L’Wrenn Scott. Tina’s usually pretty awkward on the red carpet, but in the last year she’s starting “working it,” as is the parlance of fashion blogs. Anyway, her sleek blowout flattered and her tea length frock was refreshing.
Tina’s cohost Amy Poehler also deviated from her usual red carpet unease and went really, really sexy in a Stella McCartney suit, worn over blinding diamonds. Not a truly memorable look, no, but we love a pretty lady in a suit.
Isla Fisher wore Reem Acra. No, this is not the sort of dress we usually like but there were so many goddamn sparkly neutral gowns that we had to pick one and–seriously–has Isla ever looked lovelier in the face area? We said she should “high five her makeup artist.”
Jessica Alba is the queen of red carpet safeness. However–line toeing and big dumb glamour though it may be–Alba looks magnificent in peach. The dress is Oscar de la Renta.
We’ve said it before but we prefer when people do something a little different on the red carpet. Olivia Munn opted for a strange Armani that fit her beautifully and left some impact.
Julianne Moore seldom disappoints. Last night, she was dressed by close pal Tom Ford and looked chic and modern.
This is the one look people might give us the most shit for: Lucy Liu paired her massive, statement-making Carolina Herrera with a loose, messy fishtail braid. Though we think the silhouette’s a little too exaggerated, we’re in love with the print.
Last night, though, she slipped on this Armani Privé mermaid and embodied refined minimalism. We were surprised how much we liked her in this.
Rachel Weisz is last and most graded on the curve. We first saw her on camera from the waist up and thought she looked like a complete knockout. When we finally saw the rest of the dress, we were disappointed by the sheer skirt. It went from being absolutely gorgeous to being absolutely gorgeous and available on clearance at Urban Outfitters in one. Still, that hair, that makeup, that neckline…
All right, guys–since we have no qualifications to actually rate red carpet looks (but we do have plenty of bitterness and hangover), we want to hear your thoughts. Who was best dressed last night?
