Red Carpet Rundown: The Best Dressed At The 71st Golden Globe Awards


Welcome to the 71st Golden Globes, where backless dresses and the same old Old-Hollywood-Glamour-Made-New styles reign each and every year. However, there were some people who stood out beautifully on the red carpet, and we’re here to salute them.

Just as with all award shows, the Golden Globes had some definite frontrunners in fashion who have already been established as beloved red carpet fixtures. For the 2014 Golden Globes, though, there were also plenty of unexpectedly wonderful looks. Let’s check ‘em out, shall we?

While I wish the golden branches on Julianna Margulies‘ dress by Andrew Gn were more gradual up the gown, I still love it.

I initially hated Lily Rabe‘s over-the-top gown, but now I kind of love it. It’s raining sparkles and that, for some reason, is wonderful to me.

Ariel Winter is so much better at dressing herself at 15 than I was. I’m not certain I’d be quite as keen on this Mikael D otherwise, but seriously, it’s a gorgeous color and her makeup is impeccable. Atta girl.

Chris Hemsworth looks pretty rad!

Olivia Wilde is killing. it. in. this Gucci dress. Wow.

Naomi Watts and her amazingly grumpy photobomber win the night.

Not gonna lie, I know this is odd, but holy crap–the Monique Lhuillier gown Drew Barrymore is amazing and I’m digging her bright red Roger Vivier Epine Pumps, too. It looks like a valentine I would make in the fifth grade but something about that is great.

If looks could really kill, then Cate Blanchett‘s profession would be staring. Yes, middle school Sam is narrating this red carpet rundown. And this Armani look is hot.

Caitlin Fitzgerald looked gorgeous and I actually loved her dress, hair and makeup, but those ribbon candy shoes are real weird.

I’m really digging Taylor Schilling‘s dress from Thakoon. It feels like lingerie for people who really dig St. Patrick’s Day. She also picked a Swarovski crystal ‘Kiosque’ clutch and Stuart Weitzman which accented everything really nicely.

There were some surprisingly amazing ones, too, like Lena Dunham and Kaley Cuoco, as well as ones we already knew would be perfect…

    That’s not Chris Hemsworth… it’s the naked bongo player. :)

      Yes! Right person, wrong picture. :( Fixed! My brain is apparently totally award show’d out.

      Hemsworth’s arm candy ain’t bad either.

  • Cee

    I’m gonna cut one of my dresses that no longer zip up (yea I’m fat) and wear my leggings under a la Emma Watson. No dress shall be wasted!

    they are the most beautiful woman I’ve ever known

    I like Lena Dunham’s dress well enough, but it looks like it doesn’t fit her properly? That left boob is not happy.

    • Katy Hearne

      It wouldn’t be Lena Dunham wearing it if it fit her right

  • LyndseyUselton

    I think that Juliana is Looking so cute and charming in the Red Carpet best dressed show.

  • Emily

    Lena ALMOST nailed it…it’s a beautiful dress in a great color, but it does NOT fit properly and her hair needs some help. She’s improving, though! Kaley also almost nailed it…the top of her dress didn’t fit properly (it sits too low).

    • Sexlovesounds

      I loved Lena’s dress too (lovely silhouette and color), and she is SO bad at this that I have a hard time giving her too much flack when she finally almost got it right.

      So much better than the green monstrosity with red poppies from last year.

    That Brand New reference made me absurdly happy.

    • Samantha Escobar

      :D :D :D
      I am so glad somebody enjoyed that.

  • LynnKell

    Olivia Wilde is the perfect example of how you rock your baby belly to a red carpet.

    Aaaaaand if Emma Watson hadn’t worn leggings, she would have made it to the hall of fame of wardrobe malfunctions.

    Amy Poehler tiny cut out is the only cut out in history that doesn’t look unnecessary and slutty.

    Especial mention to the photobomber for such a wonderful blue shade.

  • Andrea

    Caitlin Fitzgerald’s dress looks like it’s made from an old blanket :(

  • I Like Pizza

    I feel like you guys mixed up quite a few of the best/worst. I’ll trade you an Aubrey Plaza for a Drew Barrymore!

    I would have thrown in Reese Witherspoon although I hate her, she looked very pretty in an unusual color. Speaking of mint green, hubba hubba Helen Mirren!
