Red Carpet Report Card: Best of the Golden Globes


Welcome to the Red Carpet Report Card, Golden Globes addition. So many dresses, so little time to grade them all. First, let’s take a look at the best dressed of the night.

My best dressed choice was tied between three different beautiful ladies, but Anne Hathaway stands just a bit above the other two in Armani Privé. For a tall beauty with perfect curves like this, a structured shoulder is the best thing you can do for your body. She looks so graceful and statuesque in these beautiful rose sequins.

The back is to die for. It’s provocative, feminine and lovely. Anyone else, I would have said the hair should be worn up, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with the way Anne looks. She is a goddess. She gets an A+.

Green was the color of the night, and no one wore it better than Angelina Jolie in Versace. Again, we’re seeing a beautiful padded shoulder that opens up the back and draws attention to her tiny waist. She looks glamorous without that “going to prom” nod that so many celebrities decided to do. I love the top to bottom sparkles and her elegant and unfussy hair. Grade A.

January Jones is a Hollywood bombshell, period, end of sentence. Not only is she talented enough to be on one of the best TV shows of our time, she is the only actress who could pull of this sexy, fringed Versace gown. Everything from the color, to her hair and that beautiful cleavage, January is a fashion risk-taker, and I love her for it. A

Pregnancy has never looked so rosy on the red carpet. Natalie Portman was glowing from the inside out in this pink and red Viktor & Rolf gown with an intricately detailed rose on the chest. She looks healthy, happy and she won best actress for Black Swan. What’s not to love here? A

In a Hollywood full of tramps and star fuckers, how beautiful it is to see a real lady stand by her man. Catherine Zeta Jones was absolutely glowing in this green Monique Lhuillier princess gown. It was so good to see her and Michael Douglas on the red carpet together. Beauty from the inside out: A.

If you have a flat chest, a 1920s style dress like this is prefect for your body. Jayma Mays got it right in this elegant and sexy Alberta Ferretti plunging v-neck gown. The accessories and curly locks perfectly complete the look. The lipstick looks a little orange, but it works against her hair and skin tones. A-

Now let’s talk about a big chest. Scarlet Johansson has a gorgeous, very voluptuous rack, and this dress enhances in a different way. Instead of spilling her cleavage all over the red carpet, Scarjo chose this demure and elegant Elie Saab gown in a lovely dusty pink. It sparkles just the right amount, and the sleeve is extremely flattering. Plus, she had the best hair on the red carpet. A-

I commend Leighton Meester for trying to take fashion risks, but lately they’ve been backfiring hardcore. I was pleased to see her looking so elegant and sophisticated in Burberry Prorsum on the red carpet last night. Her makeup is absolutely gorgeous and those Jimmy Choo shoes are fab-o-rama. It’s not my favorite, but I do love the dress and her. B

I’m not used to putting Eva Longoria in the best dressed category for her red carpet looks, but she looked ravishing last night in a fitted, black Zac Posen gown. It fits her like a glove and her whoa cleavage is saying hello to every single man in that crowd. Slightly bored, but I think that’s a good thing in her case. B

Here is the thing about Lea Michele‘s Oscar de la Renta gown: It does not photograph well. When watching her on the red carpet, she looked young, fresh and vibrant in this light salmon dress. It looks too consuming in photographs. But the color on her is amazing. I am so sick of this whispy, bull-shitty kind of up-do, so no points there. But the shoes, HELLO! B-
