Golden Gowns

The annual 'Golden Globes' were held last night, honouring the stars of both big and small screen. Of course I had a close eye on the most important aspect of the ceremony...The Red Carpet Fashion!! Here's a few of my best, worst and in between picks!

The Best

Eva Longoria Parker

Eva looked stunning in a strapless, a full-skirted crimson Reem Acra gown with an awards-appropriate carpet-sweeping mermaid hem, but it's her eye-catching celestial diamond earrings that are the real stars of this look. I love the way she lets the dress do the talking by choosing simple hair, makeup and accessories. Eva never disappoints on the red carpet.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway as always looks classic and elegant in a strapless, flowing Armani Prive navy blue gown with a dazzling beaded bodice. She is also sporting her signature pulled-back 'do and bright crimson lips. A timeless beauty.

Jennifer Lopez

Lopez showed off her toned post-baby bod in a plunging gold Marchesa dress. This dress is not the best outfit I've ever seen Jen in, but I'm glad to see that after having her twins last year she's back & looking hot. Good on ya Jen!


I'm usually not a fan of Beyonce's red carpet looks because sometimes she just goes way over the top but this year I think she looked dazzling. She wore a sparkly, beaded Elie Saab gown, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a sleek but simple ponytail.

Megan Fox
Megan Fox worked the red carpet at her first Golden Globes in a curve-hugging metallic Ralph Lauren dress. I'm loving the green accessories too!

Kate Winslet
Double nominee (and double winner) Kate Winslet shows that black doesn't always have to be boring and basic in a strapless Yves Saint Laurent column dress, complete with velvet and diamond belt detail, gorgeous diamond earrings and bracelet and statement red lips. Kate is definitely representing for us Brits!

Evan Rachel Wood

The 'Wrestler' beauty looks every inch a movie star in this sequined, tiered Elie Saab gown with a plunging neckline and simple hair and makeup.

Kyra Sedgwick
The best dress older lady was Kyra Sedgwick, a knock-out in this cranberry-hued belted and bustled Oscar de la Renta gown, reminding us all why she's a repeat nominee: She knows how to work it and is always a crowd pleaser.


Best dressed couple has to got to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The nominated duo looked devastatingly fabulous, with Angie in a shimmery, drop-waist Versace gown.

The In Betweeners

The ladies in white: Salma Hayak and Eva Mendes.

These ladies usually deliver on the red carpet but this year they were both wearing white and for me although they looked 'nice' they both fell a little short.
Salma as usual got the 'big guns' out in a figure hugging Grecian-style Dior gown. She looked hot and as always is a reminder to all the stick-thin starlets out there that real women do have curves, I just wanted her to take it up a notch.
Eva Mendes
At first glance, Eva Mendes' white strapless Dior gown is a total knockout, paired perfectly with a loose updo and intricate turquoise necklace. But what's that happening on her hip? Looks like an excess of fabric became a messy, floppy, outfit-killing trimming. Should have left that bit at home Eva...

Frieda Pinto

'Slumdog Millionaire' beauty Freida Pinto goes against the grain for her first Golden Globes, choosing a simple, ruffled, saffron-hued Christian Lacroix strapless gown that perfectly complements her complexion. I think she looks stunning, but the dress just is just a tad raggedy or she would have made it to the best list.

Hayden Panettierre
I'm a big fan of Hayden's and I feel she really stepped up her fashion game in 2008 but she let me down here. Her deep purple Gianfranco Ferre gown, with jeweled detail at the chest is 'nice' but for me she's just not 'popping' like she usually does, even her complexion looks weird lol.

The Worst

Renee Zellwegger

Renee Zellweger bares it all (well, almost), in a Carolina Herrera gown with a sheer, split-shouldered top and mermaid hem, topped with a curled updo. Guess she figured no one would be looking at her hair
Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz channels Malibu Barbie in a stomach-turning bright pink Chanel dress, with criss-cross, ruching and draping detail. She even tries to match her lip color to the dress... a definite no no! What were you thinking?

Drew Barrymore

The normally bubbly, edgy star disappoints in an over-the-top John Galliano for Dior grey/blue strapless gown and seriously teased up bob. Better luck next year Drew.

Maggie Gyllenhaal

'Dark Knight' beauty Maggie Gyllenhaal loves taking fashion risks, but she's gone a bit too far in this blue leopard print Lanvin gown. With a distracting pouf topping off the one-shouldered style and an up-to-there slit, she should really be on the prowl for a new stylist. Meow!

Taraji P. Henson

'Benjamin Button' star Taraji P. Henson is always stunning, but the ruffled, fluttery detail on her J. Mendel gown overwhelms her lovel figure, and the multi-colored print leaves an underwhelming impression. She could have glammed it up a bit.
