Golden Globe Red Carpet Fashion Recap

Did you have fun watching the Golden Globe Awards last night?  I love red carpet fashion and here is my picks and pans.

What did you think of Ricky Gervais?  I thought he went too far in his often-cruel jokes.

When introducing Bruce Willis, Gervais called him, “Ashton Kucher’s dad.”

Rosie and I are already starting to plan our “Red Rug” party for Oscar night!

This is my favorite fashion of the night!

Dress: Grade A+

Hair: Grade A+

Make-up: Grade A+

Olivia Wilde knocked one out of the park in this Marchesa dress.  I loved it!  Chocolate and sparkles – a perfect combination.  Olivia Wilde stars in the tv series House and plays Quorra in the recently released film Tron:  Legacy.  I thought her hair and make-up were executed beautifully – great current style and complimented her dress and overall look.

And the worst of the night?

I love Julianne Moore but yikes, this was awful on so many levels.  Julianne was nominated in the category of Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical.  She lost to her co-star, Annette Bening.  Tough night all the way around.

Dress: Grade F

The neckline was horrid, it looked like she tucked in extra fabric under her necklace.  And speaking of the fabric?  It doesn’t lay well, flow, and the worst is the wrinkles!  Horrible!

Hair: Grade D

Very young stars can get away with a mega-casual look, but I think Julianne needs more oomph.

Make-up: Grade D

While the orange-tans were not attractive on many of the stars, Julianne still good have used a bit of color in her face.  Just sayin’…

More of the stars!

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Claire Danes were opposites on the style spectrum, but I think both of the looks worked well for them.

Dress: Grade A

Hair: Grade A

Make-up: Grade A

Catherine Zeta-Jones was at the Golden Globe Awards with her husband Michael Douglas, who was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for “Wall Street:  Money Never Sleeps”.  Christian Bale won in that category for his role in “The Fighter” (my fave movie of those nominated).  Stars and fans were thrilled to see Michael Douglas, in this first recent appearance since battling throat cancer.

Michael Douglas received a standing ovation from the audience and quipped, “There’s gotta be an easier way to make a standing ovation.” 

Dress: Grade A

Hair: Grade A

Make-up: Grade A

Claire Danes was nominated and won in the category Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, for her role in “Temple Grandin”.  “Temple Grandin” told the story of a remarkable woman who succeeded despite her diagnoses of autism.  The real Ms. Grandin accompanied Claire Danes to the awards.

Dress: Grade F

Hair: Grade D

Make-up: Grade D

Helena Bonham Carter was true to her unusual self with this outfit, but it the tulle took it over-the-top, even for her.  The oddest part was her mismatched shoes, that someone called her “Christmas look”.  She would have been my worst pick of the night, except for the fact that Julianne Moore had the wrinkles in her dress.  That made hers not only ugly but sloppy, as well.  Ms. Carter was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture, won by Melissa Leo, “The Fighter”.

Dress: Grade F

Hair: Grade D

Make-up: Grade D

Wow.  This kind of makes you speechless.  Did she know where she was going last night?

More fashion to come – you MUST see Natalie Portman’s dress! – but I wanted to get this post up.  It took me longer to put together than I thought!  In the meantime, courtesy of Mtv, here is a list of the winners of the awards (yes, I know there were awards going on – it wasn’t JUST a fashion show, hehehe.)   Update:  Here’s Part II.
