The Best and The Worst of the 72d Golden Globes

Let's start with the Worst Dressed List, so our eyes can recover afterward by the Best List.

The Worst Dressed

Lena Dunham – if you can believe, this is a Zac Posen. I know they're friends, but she clearly does not do him any favors wearing this gown. The dress was designed for an actual waist. One word Lena: Spanx! Or, in your case, about twice as many as Adele wore to the Grammys (which was 4). You're in Hollywood, it's a job requirement!

Rosamund Pike – Vera Wang personally designed it. Question is, exactly how did it stay up?

Our hosts: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Just like their monologue, left a lot to be desired.

Now, for some eye candy. (As Todd Chrisley says: Class not Ass!)

The Best Dressed List

Helen of Troy, aka Diane Kruger – Emilia Wickstead. Classic lines, love the neckline. 

Emma Stone – Lanvin. Trendsetting: Vogue immediately featured pantsuits for evening affairs on the website. 

The Queen, aka Helen Mirren – Dolce & Gabbana. And a pin with a pen in solidarity with Charlie Hebdo. When I'm her age, I'd like my neck to look like that. 

Naomi Watts – Gucci and a Bulgari Serpenti necklace. Yellow and white were the big colors on the Red Carpet, this one one of my favorite. Sothebys immediately Instagrammed that they have a Serpenti coming up for auction in February. 

Reese Witherspoon – Calvin Klein. Once again, classic. But then it's Calvin Klein. Perfect proportions for her. And I love the bare neckline.

Salma Hayek – Alexander McQueen. Salma Hayek is Salma Hayek, when did she not look good? Again, bare neckline.

Emily Blunt – Michael Kors. With turquoise accessories.  Another white dress done perfect. 
I'm sure Miranda Priesley would give a slight nod of approval. 

Christine Baranski – now this is how you do a Zac Posen!

And the Top Best Dressed award goes to:
Mr. and Mrs. Clooney. For the record, she wore Christian Dior, the much-debated gloves where her own (as in she made them herself that morning, they're kid leather by the way), Harry Winston diamonds. Both were wearing Je Suis Charlie buttons, I would expect no less from them. I personally love the gloves, and the white clutch that went with them. You can put her in a paper bag and she will look stunning, with such intelligence shining in her eyes. George is a very lucky man.

Trends of notice: statement necklaces are over, unless it is a Serpenti. Less is more. Rectangular clutch is the it bag (and it will hold your phone, finally), and if you feel like wearing pants to an event, go for it.
