Golden gowns – who wore it best?

As we all know last night saw the creme de la creme of the large and small screens coming together for The Golden Globes.

And whilst there were some very worthy winners (Les Mis and Argo I’m looking at you), let’s not pretend that the competition wasn’t just as fierce on the red carpet. For me the standout woman of the night was Anne Hathaway, who not only walked away with Best Supporting Actress in a comedy or musical, but stole the show as the best dressed in strapless Chanel. Despite being an American Beauty Anne looked every inch the English rose and for me was the absolute star of the show.


Some more of my best dressed on last nights red carpet were Emily Blunt who showed off her enviable figure in a cut out Michael Kors dress, Jessica Alba who looked radiant in coral Oscar de la Renta with feather trimmed Roger Vivier clutch, Jennifer Garner in shimmering red Vivienne Westwood Haute Couture and finally Helen Mirren giving some of the younger actresses a run for their money in a floor length black gown with gold detailing.

So if that’s the best dressed then that only leaves those unenvied celebs who made it onto the worst dressed list and for me there was one stand out winner of the worst dressed award. Zero Dark Thirty actress Jessica Chastain. I am a big fan of Chastain as an actress but this Calvin Klein number was ill-fitting, the colour did nothing for her skin tone and don’t even get me started on the bizarre hair style she’s sporting. Sorry Jessica for me, this is all kinds of wrong.


Other celebrities who didn’t quite hit the mark for me were Julianne Hough in Monique Lhullier. Whilst this white and gold princess style gown has all the opulence that The Golden Globes warrants, for me, Ryan Seacrest’s other half ruined the look with smokey eye make up that was far too harsh for the dreamy, whimsical nature of the dress as was the Miley Cyrus tribute Hough paid with her hair. Big thumbs down.


Finally, Amy Adams was one of many females getting on board the nude train, but where the likes of Kerry Washington, Hayden Panettiere and Megan Fox got it oh so right Adams look was oh so wrong. Wearing nude, fishtail Marchesa did nothing for the fair complexion of this normally stunning actress who looked so fantastic in emerald green at the pre-Globes party. For me, Adams was unfortunately a real disappointment in the style stakes.


So that’s my opinion of who wore it well, and who could do with rethinking a few things before the Oscars! Do you agree with my choices? Who was your best dressed?
