That second one belongs on my worst list. It looks like the 80s came back from the dead.

#1: Perfection. And she knows it.

#2: Well. It certainly makes a statement, as in “$2 hooker on Mission Street”. Hair is nice though. OK, the hair adds value, so let’s make it “$3 hooker on Mission Street”. I can’t wait to hear what Tom and Lorenzo have to say about this one.

#3: I think blondes have to be careful about wearing black. A strapless black dress, or an LBD is usually OK, but something this covered up makes her head look like a giant light bulb. That gold trim looks kind of cheesy, and I am royally tired of having this particular uninteresting portion of the female anatomy put on display at every opportunity (see #2, above).

Can't wait to see your worst.

I agree in theory about the cleavage, but it doesn't bother me here mainly because she's slender and not busty so it isn't all hanging out, thus the cut becomes more of an interesting (or not!) design element than "LOOK AT MY BOOBS!!!"

The last is not one of my favorites of the night at all, but not one of my worsts either. I don't love the gold. It is a bit 80s dynasty for me. On the other hand it has a Bernini quality to it that I do like, though in the backdrop to the Ecstasy of St. Teresa or the Cathedra Petri, not a dress ;)

I'd be interested in hearing comments on the show and the awards from anyone who did watch "the thing," not that I take the Golden Globes with undue seriousness.

Watch Jodie Foster online--Her speech defies comments. Well, doesn't defy them but they are very divided. It was something else, that is for sure.

Totally agree about #s 1 and 3. I mean really, you'd think anyone married to the unutterably gorgeous Daniel Craig would not want to look like she is wearing bathroom curtains from the Hammer House of Horror! And Chaistain looks like she kept the sheet on when she got out of bed. Both are truly awful.

As to HBC, I absolutely love her off beat sense of style, even when I hate what she's wearing. She plays by nobody's rules but her own, and I bow down before her magnificent weirdness. Btw, did you see the outfit she wore a few weeks ago to meet the queen? Somebody described it as punk Victorian hooker.

I'm again in agreement (mostly) with Peggy :) I'd only say that while Jessica Chastain's dress was definitely bad, it looked nowhere near as bad in the views at the show as in this red carpet shot.

I'll say I loved Julianne Moore's dress, Naomi watts and (yes a lot of people hated it) Lucy Liu's

Sure was. I now understand why she's inclined to give Mel Gibson the benefit of the doubt. Or maybe she just imbibed too much champagne, which happens regularly at the Globes. She did manage to get it together towards the end, but it was still confusing - if you weren't paying close attention you might have thought it was a retirement speech. It was a bit of a headscratcher to this viewer because Foster did come out a few years ago with no great fuss (and even then the announcement was hardly news to anyone paying even casual attention - Foster never did much to hide, unless you count a bizarre and brief flirtation with Russell Crowe back in the day).

Sorry, cubanmiamiboy...I must agree with Aurora! Among your 3, I liked only Taylor Swift's gown.

I go for fluffy princessy glamour. My own top 3, in reverse order:

3. Julianne Hough

2. Jessica Alba in Oscar de la Renta:

Ben Affleck got his just rewards after being snubbed by the Oscars. Well deserved.

I completely agree, Giannina. I watched ZERO DARK THIRTY this weekend and fell asleep halfway, until my husband poked me in the ribs in time to see the big 'mission' scene in the last 30 minutes. ARGO, on the other hand, was a compelling, exciting film from beginning to end.

I agree about Lucy Liu's. I actually had her in my list, but then...it is mostly about HER wearing the dress what turned me off. That dress needs someone like Grace Kelly or Sarah Jessica Parker...meaning, either a Princess-like lady like the former or an uber-fashionista like the latter. The dress is wonderful, but i don't think she has enough personality to wear it. Moore's was beautiful too, but it is not a fantasy/Hollywood-glamour dress. It is best suited for a night at the opera maybe. She wore it STUNNINGLY though. Totally agree with Hough, but I tend more toward the dramatic colors or black.

Now, allow me PLEASE to substitute Longoria's by Glenn Close's and Hudson's with Naomi Watts', which i just discovered. Both wore Zac Posen

I haven't yet seen Near Zero Dark Thirty, having been less than enthralled by The Hurt Locker, which I found tedious (another day, another bomb). If Bigelow and her screenwriter Mark Boal do for the bin Laden raid what they did for ordnance disposal then it sounds like a long two hours.

I think Lucy Liu's gown is gorgeous and she carried it off well. Chastain's frock looked better on her than it appears in that shot.

I mean really, you'd think anyone married to the unutterably gorgeous Daniel Craig would not want to look like she is wearing bathroom curtains from the Hammer House of Horror!


Judging by the undistinguished numbers in which Rebecca Miller generally appears and Livia Firth's outfit from last year's Oscars, my theory is that the women married to the most desirable male stars don't have to try as hard, the message being, "I can wear whatever costly and faintly ridiculous outfit I like, because I'm Mrs. [Daniel Day-Lewis, Colin Firth, Daniel Craig] and YOU'RE NOT! MWHA-HA-HA-HA!"

Corrected - I see I conflated two Bigelow pictures in my original post. I enjoyed "Near Dark" so perhaps that's why.
