Red Carpet Report Card: Worst of the Golden Globes
Jan 17, 2011 - by Amanda Gabriele
And on to my favorite post of the day: WORST of the Golden Globes. Not only will you be getting my utmost superior opinion on these red carpet catastrophes, but I've asked for the also superior opinions of everyone in the Fashion Indie office. Let's start with the worst of the worst of the worst.
I get severe back and neck pain every time I look at Michelle Williams in this Valentino dress because my brain is sending signals of suffering and agony to the rest of my body. THIS IS A TRAIN WRECK. If you disagree, you are wrong. This is not a matter of opinion, it is a matter of fact, and she looks terrible. Was her stylist wasted when he/she brought this dress to the fitting? I wore a dress like this when I was 12 - I hated it then, and I still hate it now. F
Office comment: Shower curtain I would not hang in my bathroom
Julie Bowen managed to find the ugliest shade of gray for last night's Golden Globes. This Tadashi Shoji chiffon gown does not translate, as she looks like a chicken that was plucked and had it's feathers glued back on asymmetrically. She has a great body, so why hide behind this hideous frock that washes her out? A funny lady shouldn't strive to look funny. D
Office comment: Drab, like a garden overgrown with weeds
What happened to Christina Aguilera?! She used to be a bombshell, and now she's just a mess. First of all, YOU ARE NOT CHER. The "strategically placed applique" look of this Zuhair Murad doesn't work for her because of her curves. And I am not saying she's pudgy, but sleeves would not hurt her right now. It's very difficult to wear a strapless dress if it doesn't fit perfectly. And it looks like she's wearing a wig! Bad, bad, bad X-tina. D
Office comment: She could have looked worse
Everyone in the office is giving me shit for putting Emma Stone in the worst-dressed category, but I really couldn't care less. This Calvin Klein dress is chic, and I don't think this blond hair-dying, Lindsey Lohan look-alike has earned the right to wear it yet. Easy A was mediocre at best, I want to see some real acting emotion dammit. The only reason she gets a plus is because her body is great and she can wear this dress. But may she? D+
Office comments: Love it, she looked beautiful and stunning
I weep for Julianne Moore. She is one of the most brilliant actresses in Hollywood, and she constantly makes poor fashion choices. This Lanvin dress makes me say "ain't nothin' like mutton," where is the spit, it's time to roast this leg of lamb. Really bad color, worse construction and it's wrinkled. Yuck! It looks like she's about to enter an amateur jousting match. D-
Office comment: I hate redheads in pink. It was such a green year, and that color looks great on her. Why didn't she wear green?
It's a shame half of Halle Berry's dress got ripped off in the limo door because she looks great from the waist up. This Nina Ricci dress looked amazing on the runway, but it was worn with boots and tights for an edgy feel. This is too tight on her and looks like it might split in the back as soon as she takes her seat. BUT, I love her hair short, and except for the dress, she looks beautiful. D
Office comment: I love Halle Berry, so this upsets me. She can do anything she wants, but not really.
Jennifer Love Hewitt stained her Golden Globes dress at the last minute, so she had to staple this white tablecloth around herself minutes before she arrived. UGH. This Romona Keveza gown was so not a good choice. First of all, SO OVER the big bun. Secondly, she also has a nice, full bust, and this floppy piece of fabric does nothing for it. I hate white, even for wedding dresses, because it's not flattering and it makes fake tans look more orange than they already are. Beautiful, talented girl, really bad fashion taste. D-
Office comment: A girl with a big bust should wear a sweetheart neckline, something that accentuates but doesn't let everything flop around.
There you have it folks, the worst dressed from this year's Golden Globes. I'd love to hear your comments, even though you might be wrong.
