The stars truly shined as they hit the 69th annual Golden Globes red carpet on Jan. 15. Seeing the guests arrive at the Beverly Hilton Hotel is almost as thrilling as wondering what quips will come out of host Ricky Gervais’ mouth!
“This is always the most fun night of the year,” said Stacy Keibler, girlfriend of George Clooney.
So let’s dive right in. Here are some of the fashion hits and misses of the most amusing night in Hollywood.
Theron looked stunning in this pale pink masterpiece by the French fashion house. From her jewel-encrusted Cartier headband to her strappy Givenchy heels, this elegant look was a far cry from Mavis Gary’s outlandish style in her Globe-nominated performance in “Young Adult”.
George Clooney’s better half sizzled on the red carpet in this form-fitting red number. The back of the dress was just as gorgeous as the front, with an unexpected bow adding even more glamour to an already lovely look. Keibler’s gorgeous ensemble reminds the world that you don’t have to be a nominee to win the approval of fashion critics.
The Australian beauty resembled a real-life Barbie in this flesh-tone creation by the American designer. The tight bodice, exploding into a sea of tulle ruffles, complemented Macpherson’s physique perfectly and reminded us of why she’s still nicknamed “The Body”.
Blige’s dress was definitely a red carpet worst for the evening. While the color matched the pale pinks and blushed worn by others, the overall ensemble came off as cheap. The stretchy bodice did not flatter the singer’s figure and the feathers at the bottom seemed both out of place and a bit dirty.
Williams’ did not impress at the award show with this dowdy, patterned frock. The color and cut aged the “My Week With Marilyn” actress and it would have been great to see her in something more youthful and bright.
Speaking of dowdy dresses, Biel’s gown reigned supreme as the drabbest of them all on the carpet. It seems that she’s taking her newly engaged status a little too literally in this wedding dress look-a-like. Her messy tresses add more mess to this already chaotic ensemble and it’s eerily reminiscent of Sandra Bullock’s wedding dress in “The Proposal”. If only this was a joke…
Overall, it was a good night for fashion at the Globes. While some stars clearly missed the mark, the majority of attendees were right on target – a promising sign for the awards shows to come.
