Charlotte’s Top & Bottom Fives: Golden Globes Fashion

I love awards shows. There, I said it. I love them primarily for the fashion and I always watch E! for the pre-show red carpet. This year I thought much of the fashion was underwhelming but there are always a few stars that stand out from the rest. Here are my top five picks for the best fashion, listed from #5 to #1.

julliannaJulianna Margulies in Andrew Gn – Classic perfection.

 elisabethElisabeth Moss in J.Mendel – love this art deco-inspired dress. (But I would have picked another shoe.)

lupitaLupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren – just stunning. The color is beautiful against her skin and I love the caped look.

zooeyZoey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta – Beautiful from head to toe, a total knock-out look. The beaded crop top made this look so fresh.

michelleMichelle Dockery in Oscar de la Renta

Michelle is my #1 pick because she looks so flawlessly effortless in this beautiful taupe dress with gold embellishment. This could have been just another strapless dress that we see over and over again at awards shows but the high/low hem, the gold embellishment and the perfect fit elevated it to a superior level. Her shoes and jewelry are perfectly understated highlighting  her peaches and cream complexion. I love this classy look.

And then there were the not-so-good looks. Again, from #5 to #1, here are my picks for the bottom five fashionistas.

juliaJulia Roberts in Dolce and Gabbana looks like she’s wearing her husband’s shirt under a strapless gown. Messy.

annaAnna Gunn in a Donna Karan dress that’s the same color as her skin. She’s beige from head to toe.

ediefalcoEdie Falco in a big orange bow…..I mean, Lanvin. I’m sorry to say this but the fabric looks like cheap, shiny poly.

jenniferJennifer Lawrence in a bound toilet paper roll…..I mean, Dior. I’m so disappointed in this dress.

zoeZoe Saldana in a friend’s design.

I have to give Zoe props for being sweet and wearing her friend’s design but, my goodness, what a mess of a dress. It looks like repurposed stripper lingerie bits and pieces. I saw her interviewed on the red carpet on E! where she over-explained why she was wearing it at all. Poor thing.

And, for a little lagniappe:

kerry Kerry Washington in Balenciaga, most beautiful pregnant woman.

 

naomiandliev Naomi Watts (wearing another dress I loved by Tom Ford) and Liev Schreiber, most beautiful couple.

 

usherUsher in Calvin Klein, best dressed beautiful man. (But, of course, I’m prejudiced because I like him so much.)

So,who were your picks?

  1. Hi Charlotte, I agree with your choices on both lists, but I would have put Jennifer Lawrence’s dress as worst of all. She should have pulled off that bottom belt, it was not good. thanks! sp
