It’s here! The Golden Globe Awards is one of the busiest nights in the Fashion Police calendar, and our officers have been working tirelessly for – well, let’s just say minutes at least – to round up the celebrity suspects in attendance at last night’s events. We’ve already singled out Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore and Lucy Liu in earlier posts: now here’s the best – and worst – of the rest of the Golden Globes red carpet. These celebrities stand before you, shaking in their stilettos as they wait to find out whether you’ll deem them to be fashion criminals, or whether you’ll find them innocent of all charges. So tell us… Who was your best and worst dressed celebrity at the 2013…
Love it. We’ve got to hand it to Anne Hathaway: we may not have loved everything she’s worn in the run-up to award seasons, but she really pulled it out of the bag for the Golden Globes, and looked absolutely stunning in this white Chanel Couture gown. Anne often reminds us of Audrey Hepburn, especially with her shorter hair, but never more so than here, in a dress Audrey herself would’ve been proud of. Unsurprisingly, she took home the ‘Best Supporting Actress” Globe for her role in Les Miserables: should she be named Best Dressed, too? [Images: PRPhotos.com]
OK, we’re just going to say it: we actually really liked Lucy Liu’s Golden Globes 2013 look. No, we’re serious. This Carolina Herrera floral number seems to have made it into most of the Worst Dressed Lists this morning: so far we’ve seen it described as “grandma’s drapes” and “a dress made out of wallpaper, plus numerous references to “toilet roll dolls”, but we’re going to be contrary and say we thought it was a breath of fresh air after all of the shiny sequins and boring blacks we normally see at these kind of events. It’s bold, it’s beautiful, and we think she totally works it. Do you? Fashion crime or floral fabulous? [Image © HFPA/Golden Globe Awards]
(Angelina’s always done the leg thing, hasn’t she?) Immediately after every major awards ceremony, The Fashion Police are always inundated with press releases from brand’s claiming that their dresses are exactly like the ones just seen on the red carpet, and will therefore allow us to “get the look” of the stars. We’re always a little puzzled by these messages: not just because the dresses in question almost never do look even remotely like the ones they’re claiming to be inspired by, but because, seriously: how many of you really NEED to look like you’re going to the Oscars on a regular basis? Not that many, we bet. Because Oscar dresses are really only appropriate for, well, The Oscars. And, we…
There’s always someone dressed like a swan bride, isn’t there? This time, it’s Elle Macpherson, whose stance here seems to suggest that she’s worried the dress is about to drop right off her. We worry with her. [Images: PRPhotos.com]
Claire Danes kept things simple and sleek for the Globes, in a black and white J. Mendel gown, which had an open back. Claire kept the simple theme going with a slicked-back updo, and bright red lips.
Jessica Chastain was another member of the White Dress brigade at last night’s Golden Globe Awards. Her dress was one of our favourites, but we’re actually more interested in her bouffant hairdo, which helps give the whole look a bit of 60s glamour. Do you like it, though?
We actually weren’t going to give Kelly Osbourne her own post, because we figured it’ll just mess with the heads of all of the people who think we ARE Kelly Osbourne, or Joan Rivers, or any of the other E! Network presenters, (We’re not, by the way, just in case you’re new to the site) and perhaps encourage people to send us even MORE illiterate rants about “our” plastic surgery etc. Kelly’s Zac Posen dress, however, was one of the more interesting of the evening, so we thought you might like to see it. We’ve read a few criticisms of this dress, but we actually really like it: we’re still not on board with the grey hair, though…
Kate Beckinsale often wears white gowns on the red carpet. Unfortunately, so do a lot of other people, and honestly, all of those strapless white gowns start to blend into one another after a while, don’t they? Kate is trying hard to make hers memorable with the boob-framing crumb catcher on this one by Roberto Cavalli. Is she succeeding, though? [Images: PRPhotos.com]
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?
In all of the photos our agency provided of Sarah Michelle Gellar and Piper Perabo at last night’s Golden Globe Awards, they were stuck together at the torso and posing like a couple of Barbie dolls. That means you can’t quite see their respective dresses in all their glory, because they’re all kinda smooshed together, but we’re going to ask you to judge them anyway, because we’re mean like that. What do you think? [Images: PRPhotos.com]
She may have picked up the Best Actress award for her performance in My Week With Marilyn, but, of course, it’s her performance on the red carpet that’s of concern to The Fashion Police, and what we want to know is whether Michelle Williams was worthy of the Best Dressed award at last night’s Golden Globes? Michelle wore a black and navy dress by Jason Wu, with a high neckline and three-quarter length sleeves. What did you think of it? [Images@ PRPhotos.com]
Just in case yesterday’s Golden Globes gallery wasn’t quite enough for you, here are a few of the celebrities we didn’t catch up with yesterday: Jennifer Love Hewitt, that’s one hell of a crumb-catcher: Carrie Underwood: So far this selection is making us feel a bit like we’re at a very posh mass wedding. It must be a complete bummer when you turn up at an awards ceremony and realise that so many other people went with the same colour of gown, mustn’t it? (Yes, people who wore green, we’re looking at you…) One long white gown tends to blend into another after the third photo, but Dianna Agron still looks absolutely gorgeous, no? Elizabeth Moss was part of the…
Awards season is well under way, which means that for the next few weeks, The Fashion Police will be working our stiletto heels off to bring you coverage from the red carpet. For last night’s Golden Globes ceremony, however, we’ve simply rounded up a selection of the celebrities in attendance for you to cast judgement upon. Take a look through our gallery of Golden Globes looks, and don’t forget to tell us who you thought was best and worst dressed! [All images: PRPhotos.com]
When haute couture goes horribly wrong… Amanda Seyfried wore head-to-toe Valentino to the Golden Globes after party. It’s a label that’s usually synonymous with style and sophistication, which begs the question: what the hell went wrong here? Why does the dress look like it’s been patched together in a hurry, using fabrics found on the cutting room floor? Why does the early promise of the bodice peter out into a disappointing mid-section and, frankly horrifying bottom half? Are those SHOES? On the plus side: we love her hair. Maybe if we concentrate really hard on it, it’ll help us forget those shoes?
A vintage look for Rose McGowan, from the tulle on her bright blue dress, to her strappy silver sandals! We love this colour with her hair and skin, and so it gets our whole-hearted approval. What do you think?
From the waist up, it’s kinda like what your mother would wear to the Golden Globes. From the waist down, it’s… not. We can see what Ashley Tisdale was probably doing here: following a basic “if you’re going to wear a fringed mini skirt and leopard print shoes, wear something totally non-revealing on top.” It’s generally a sound rule to live by, but we feel a bit like her torso looks like it belongs on someone else here. What do you think?
After the party comes the after party, and after the Golden Globes came… Lindsay Lohan in this unusual hooded dress, which makes her look a bit like either: a) She’s in fancy dress as Rihanna b) Lindsay is the hooded spectre of doom, and her appearance here is some kind of warning to us all. We must re-check the Fashion Bible and find out if there’s a passage saying, “When the hooded spectre of Lindsay Lohan shalt appear at the Golden Globes, Crocs and harem pants shall be in fashion forever more!” or some such thing. While we’re doing that, feel free to tell us what you think of Lindsay’s outfit here! P.S – for more Golden Globes after party…
So many dresses, so little time! Such is the way of the award ceremony, unfortunately, and we just don’t have the time to discuss every single one of the hits and misses of the 67th Annual Golden Globes, as much as we’d like to. That doesn’t mean you can’t discuss them, though: we’ve rounded up as many of last night’s looks as we were able to, so have a look at the gallery below, and remember to tell us whose outfits you loved and loathed!
Here comes the bride! Oops, no, our mistake, it’s just Kate Hudson: false alarm! Actually, this dress makes us want to get married, just so we’d have a plausible excuse to wear it. (And something to catch the crumbs from the wedding cake in, too!) It’s by Marchesa, and is really a work of art, although whether it’s a good one or a bad one is, of course, up to you to decide. Kate wore it with a pair of chunky white platform shoes by Casadei. We wouldn’t imagine this would’ve been one of the most comfortable outfits of the evening, but was it worth it, do you think?
