2013 Golden Globes Best and Worst Dress List

Best Dressed: Julianna Moore in Tom Ford
Let me preface that by no means I am a fashion expert. I love fashion, I love style and generally I know what looks good. Fashion is a personal choice so while someone might think something looks great on them, another person may feel the opposite.

The Golden Globes is the kick off for the Awards Season and this years red carpet did not disappoint. Celebrities went glam and brought out the big guns to this years ceremonies. The men looked awesome too, especially Bradley Cooper, who I think set the tone for men's fashion that evening.

But in all reality we are here to look and see what the women are wearing. Julianna Moore was my definite favorite in that Tom Ford number. Simple, elegant, flattering and the bare back with just the touch of spaghetti strap was fantastic!

Worst Dressed: Anne Hathaway in Chanel
Some of my favorite red carpet favs did not disappoint while others caught me by surprise and had me yelling, "WHY!" I am talking to you Anne Hathaway! I love you in white and I love Chanel but didn't anyone tell you that you looked like you were wearing a body cast! Now maybe in a different color it would have had a different effect but the number you strolled in did not wow me at all. The top half of the dress is the most distracting. The bottom half was actually pretty flattering...but seriously you looked liked you were wrapped in a bedazzled ace bandage by Karl Lagerfeld. Loved your hair hated the dress and BTW congrats on the win as Fantine. Well deserved.

So with that said here are my pics for the best and worst dresses of the evening. Like I said, I am no expert so my choices are purely my own aesthetics and thoughts and at the end of the day that's all it is.

My Picks for Best Dressed:

Kerry Washington in Miu Miu, Nicole Richie in Naeem Kham, Lea Michele in Elie Saab, Claire Danes in Versace
Kerry's illusion dress was fresh, young and vibrant. So 1920s flapper glam...I loved it. Nicole Richie looked demure and classic. Loved the long sleeps on this dress very vintage but very now as well. Lea's dress was fantastic. Loved the white sequence and the halter top (take note Anne Hathaway). Claire Danes looked magnificent in this simple and red number.
Nicole Kidman in Alexander McQueen, Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen, Adele in Burberry, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Yves Saint Laurent
Sarah Burton hit the right buttons for the Alexander McQueen dresses that Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson wore. Love the peek-a-boos on both dresses while giving a statuesque look to both. Adele has a style and this Burberry dress did not disappoint. It's very much the songbirds persona and it was a perfect compliment to her. Rosie (who is she?) but who cares because her dress was youthful, modern and sexy enough to get noticed.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Vera Wang, Jessica Alba in Oscar de la Renta, Marion Cotillard in Dior, Jennifer Gardner in Vivienne Westwood
Julia's illusion dress was fantastic and age appropriate. Love the lace detailing. Jessica's coral dress drove me crazy. Perfect for her skin tone but more importantly the dress was so simple with just the right amount of detailing that it was perfect. The Harry Winston jewels didn't hurt either. I loved Marion's asymmetric dress and the color was superb. The draping and the metal belt accent was stunning. Jennifer's dress was awesome. The fabric shimmered and the texture was the perfect punch for the simple dress.

Julianna Margulies in Emilio Pucci
Julianna in this navy blue number is exquisite and probably my second favorite of the evening next to Julianna Moore's Tom Ford ensemble.

My Picks for Worst Dressed:

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad, Amanda Seyfried in Givenchy, Sienna Miller in Erdem, Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham
Jennifer, we get that you are are one sexy mutha (literally) but really...and let's face will never recapture the moment you hit the red carpet in that Versace scarf dress again. Amanda...vintage lace never looked so wrong. Sienna...what in the heck are those appliques? It's very dated on you and you look much order and heavier than you really are! It's sorta reminding me of a Filipina bridesmaids dress from the 1990s I saw at a wedding once. Kristen, what in the heck happened to your neck! Take off the damn armor already the war is over!
Jessica Chastain in Calvin Klein, Lucy Liu in Carolina Herrera, Julianna Hough in Monique Lhuillier, Hallie Berry in Atelier Versace
Jessica, I was mixed on your dress, but after careful thought and the more I looked at it the more I hated it! It's very ill fitting and the top is not at all flattering. Your boobs look like they are sagging down to your waist! Lucy, I think I had a comforter made out of that back in the 80s and also Scarlett O'Hara stated, "The BITCH stole my look!" I think she is referring to the curtains. Oh Julianna, we are not on Dancing with the Stars anymore. Halle, it's time to retire that look...we get it.
Debra Messing in Donna Karan, Rachel Weisz in Louis Vuitton, Tina Fey in L'Wren Scott, Lena Dunham in Zac Posen
Debra, did you wear this just in case you needed to jump out of a plane? I think I had pants made out of that same material in the 80s. Rachel, I am just as confused as your dress. need a new stylist because that dress just is not flattering in so many ways. The length is odd, the tuxedo fold is odd, the white just looks off with that lace. Kudos on the hair though. Lena, I know it's your first awards show and your are really close to Zac but that dress is not doing anything for you...I think you need to talk to Jennifer Hudson who made the same mistakes her first award season for pointers.

Guiliana Rancic in Celia Kritharioti
Guiliana's dress, I think, is the worst dress of the evening. The cut, the neck the lace there's so much wrong with this dress. If she is trying out for the part of Maleficent than she did a great job but this dress as a whole, dare I say it...gross.

And finally the dresses I am on the fence about.

Jody Foster in Giorgio Armani, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, Emily Blunt in Michael Kors, Amy Adams in Marchesa
I love Jody's speech and the thought of her dress. I am wondering if it would have been better without the shoulder straps. Jennifer's dress from afar is gorgeous but the crumb catcher/pocket boob thing threw me off. Emily's dress I am so mixed about. I love the gold lace and the peek-a-boo but there's something that is just off and I can't pinpoint it. Amy's dress is gorgeous I think a darker fabric or tone may have been better. It blends in to her skin tone too much.

Okay that's all folks. See you for the Oscars!
