Fashion Police at the 2012 Golden Globes: Madonna in Reem Acra

Madonna at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Never mind the award itself (Best Original Song, in case you’re wondering): Madonna’s OWN Golden Globes look like they’re trying very hard to escape from the fabric prison of her Reem Acra dress, no?

(Sorry: in every Golden Globes roundup, there has to be at least one joke comparing someone’s breasts to Golden Globes. It’s an Internet law.)

Madonna sadly can’t step onto the red carpet now without the phrase “for her age” being thrown around (See also Helen Mirren), and also without huge speculation as to what she may or may not have had done to her face this week. We only care about what she’s wearing, though, so what’s the verdict, jurors?

    I love the dress and how she looks in it.
    Cannot say I love the gloves and the peaking bra straps..
    On a side note – whatever she was doing to her face, I think she looks great.

    I think she looks awesome AND age appropriate. I especially love the top half of the dress, and would have liked less green on the bottom, more like the tiny squares. Just a little bit more restrained. Don’t love: the crucifix necklace (we’ve seen them by now on her) and the glove. But overall, definitely better than what we’re used to from her, I think.

      Me too. The way these poor girls were squashes is far worse than the gloves.
      It’s unbelievable that even MADONNA cannot find a dress in her size…

    Horrible. What an ugly messy skirt, and the leather gloves are idiotic. Just like Michelle Williams, one of the worst dressed of the event.

    What is it they say about removing an accessory or two before you leave the house? Had she dropped the gloves and at least one wrist of diamonds — oh, and had it tailored correctly for her bosom … well, then …

    I definitely like it, and I am pretty sure I would love to wear this dress. I would probably lose the gloves, but I can’t say I am really bothered by them.

    The top part of the dress is gorgeous, aside from the boob-squishing…
    …but the bottom half looks like some animal gone loose. I love the necklace with it too, but I wish she wouldn’t have added the leather gloves; the dress isn’t edgy enough to put leather gloves and other stuff with it. She should have gone old school glamour on this piece.
