Best and Worst Dressed of Golden Globes 2016

It's that time of the year again: the Awards Season. The Golden Globes red carpet has been dominated this year by the deep-plunging necklines (there has to be a massive shortage of double stick tape in LA today), mermaid dresses, and hair pulled back so tightly that none of the women could blink the entire night and are now nursing massive hairstyle-induced headaches.

The Best Dressed List

Move over Matt Damon, the new Martian is Jennifer Lawrence! Not only is she incredible on screen, but she always stuns on the Red Carpet. Now let's remember that she's only 25 and we have another Meryl Streep on our hands. Dior dress, Chopard diamonds.

Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton. Absolutely stunning dress. Almost had her as Number 1.

 
Rosey Huntington-Whiteley in Atelier Versace. A tall glass of champagne comes to mind. And one of the few women that decided for a relaxed hair style. (I do hope she will change her name to Statham after the wedding. It is much more convenient!)

America Ferrera in Jenny Packham. The perfect yellow.

Queen Latifah looks amazing in the icy blue column dress. She has always dressed extremely well for her curves. (Melissa McCarthy take note!) Love the neckline.

Lady Gaga in Atelier Versace, Neil Lane diamonds. When will people stop expecting the meat dress? She is tasteful, classic, and elegant. And she learned to edit. Get used to it.

Kate Winslet played it safe in Ralph Lauren. Love the color!

Viola Davis in Marchesa. She looked stunning on stage when presenting. The dress moves quite well. 

The Worst Dressed List
This might be a longer list than usual. Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams went Scarlet O'Hara route and wore dining room drapes, and Jane Fonda turned herself into a cupcake. And that was just the tip of the iceberg.

Cate Blanchett in Givenchy, as usual. Unusual is that this is a bad choice. Did her red carpet entourage include a designated dress-comb person? Her hair did not help the situation as well, but I'm sure her stylist was completely dumbfounded by dress, just like the rest of us.

Eva Longoria. Oh honey! This is a cute dress, but not for you! This is a Karly Kloss dress, as in one needs to be 6 feet tall and have no hips to pull it off. And it is obvious that the dress had to be hemmed severely to fit her height, yet it still dragged 2 extra inches. Probably because her stylist was counting on Eva wearing towering platforms.

Jennifer Lopez in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture, Harry Winston diamonds, and Jimmy Choo shoes. The Leg pose will forever belong to Angelina Jolie, so don't even try. And this color is not doing any favors to JLo's meaty thigh. There is a lot going on here, and it is all wrong. Giambattista Valli should be left to only one person - Mrs. Clooney.



Rooney Mara and Amanda Peet, both in Alexander McQueen (and same lip color!). Both a complete disaster. Was this a nod to the Jennifer Connelly's Balenciaga fiasco of Oscars 2002? Ladies, 2002 was not the fashion year one should repeat! I wonder if they share a stylist...

Katy Perry. No one recognized her with normal hair color. But then again, no one was looking at her head anyway. A lot of men had to pick up their jaw off the floor, and a lot of babies said: "Lunch!" Hats off to her plastic surgeon - the work is beautiful. Completely inappropriate for the Golden Globes. Oh, and she's got Spanx on, one size too-small judging by the binding waistband.

Melissa McCarthy. In a black garbage bag. Or is it navy? She lost 50 lbs, yet chose not to show it off?! She needs to hire Queen Latifah's stylist, because there are beautiful clothes out there for full-figured women. She's got beautiful shoes on and has very shapely legs, yet they're all hidden by the shiny shower curtain in front. (If you want to see someone even more ridiculous, look at the upper left: the fur lady takes the cake. And it was not that cold in LA that night)

Kate Hudson in Michael Kors Collection. Michael Kors is the king of American sportswear. Haute Couture designer he is not. Can't even call this a dress, it's just three tubes: small, medium, and large.

Jada Pinkett Smith in Atelier Versace. Another leg. Another dress that would be better suited on a taller woman. Good color for her, but that is it. And the green of the shoes does not match the dress. Bridesmaid gone wrong.

Jane Fonda in Yves Saint Laurent Couture. Cupcake on a stick.

Jill Soloway and Gaby Hoffmann. Is this a joke? Maybe they thought they were going to the Grammys.
