Golden Globes fashion: hits and misses

January 12, 2009

The Golden Globes were back this year, and no one was more excited than the stars themselves, who celebrated by walking down the red carpet in all their finest. But whose primping and preening paid off the most? And who fell horribly flat?

US Weekly Fashion Director Sasha Charnin Morrison listed Anne Hathaway and Angelina Jolie as two of her favorites, saying Marisa Tomei and Renee Zellweger’s looks were “clunkers.” Meanwhile, style expert Michael O’Connor said his top choices were Eva Mendes and Drew Barrymore.

But what did you think? Check out some of the looks below and let us know.

 Drew Barrymore in Galliano






Marisa Tomei in Oscar de la Renta










                                                                            Eva Mendes in Dior









Anne Hathaway in Armani







 Renee Zellweger in Carolina Herrera

Renee and Drew’s hair…no no no. Overprocessed, uncombed, baaaad.Love Drew’s dress, and she’s so cute, but the faux-Marilyn thing doesn’t work for her–it’s too harsh.
Why is Jennifer Lopez’s dress not listed here? It looked like she tore down my Aunt Rose’s gold living room drapes and fashioned a makeshift covering. Bad. But amusing.

Sandra Bullock’s dress was great. I love that she pulled off wearing what was essentially a sexy wedding cake.

What a shame that someone as beautiful as Marisa Tomei was stuck with such an odd dress. It looks as if she was given “the puffy shirt” for her appearance on Seinfeld ten years ago.

The evening’s best dresses: Eva Longoria Parker’s flame red strapless and Anne Hathaway’s beautiful sequined navy Armani Prive. Jennifer Lopez could have doubled as Oscar himself; Renee Zellwiger will never look good no matter what she wears, Cameron Diaz should have let her hair grow out last year and Drew Barrymore’s hair was combed with a John Deere thresher.

I know that the stars are panned for her gown choices, but why doesn’t anyone ever pan the designers for coming up with those hideous dresses in the first place?
