Golden Globes Best & Worst Dressed

My, how I love a good awards show. The Golden Globes yesterday certainly didn't disappoint. Below are some of my favorite looks followed by some of my least favorite.


Golden Globes 2013 Red Carpet Julianne Hough

Sources 1/2/3/4/5

Jennifer Lawrence is stunning. Well, she's pretty much a stunning woman anyway (when she's not smiling), but this dress is amazing. The only thing I didn't LOVE was the weird ruffle thing at the top. But, hey, it was a couture gown so, it's okay right? [Dior Couture]

Gah, Michelle Dockery was gorg. I loved this gold brocade and white number. It was a bit reminiscent of something her character Mary Crawley might wear. And I loved the vintage hairstyle. Like a modern version of the 20s hairstyle she wears on Downton Abbey. [Alexandre Vaulthier]

Zooey. Man, I love her. This is a beautiful dress. It's a bit quirky and interesting and not the normal silhouette you see at these shows. Plus the color is gorgeous on her with her hair and skin tone. [Oscar De La Renta]

Julianne Hough's dress was a nice breath of fresh air. I love the white and gold and the silhouette was interesting and unique. I did not like that pompadour hair though. It was too severe...too rockabilly for the dress. Something a bit softer would have been better, no? [Unknown]

Isla Fisher's dress was classy and elegant. Her hair and makeup looked beautiful and the dress was on point. A+ Isla! [Reem Acra]

Honorable Mentions: Sofia Vergara, Juliana Margulies, Jessica Alba, Claire Danes and Hayden Panettiere.


Kaley Cuoco isn't on my worst list because of her dress. (Neither is Sarah Hyland for that matter.) Kaley is on my worst list because of her horrid hair and makeup. The hair looks dirty and unkempt and her makeup is way too dark. The goth makeup look has yet to come back around. And even if it were in style again, I'm not so sure it would go with the dress. Sigh. Kaley, better luck next time.

Giuliana Rancic already has sort of a grasshopper/praying mantis look to her silhouette. This dress was just really bad because it EMPHASIZED that bug look. The neckline and shoulder cutaways made her head look large and her body look very small. Plus, the overall look was a bit old for her, right?

Sarah Hyland's outfit isn't really all that bad. The pushed up ta-tas and voluminous hair look a little too sexy for her...even though she's 22. She's a beautiful girl, so she doesn't really need to emphasize "the girls" and wear big hair to look pretty. She's gorgeous without those things!

Sienna Miller. Wow. I don't really know what to say. She is a gorgeous lady. This ensemble is way too dated and juvenile looking for an event like this. MAYBE (emphasis on the maybe) it would be appropriate for a garden party (if it were a short dress) but this weird crochet/floral applique mess just reminds me of something I wore in 5th grade. For reals.

Dishonorable Mentions: Eva Longoria (that slit is RIDIC!), Amy Poehler (pants?) and T Swifty.

Thoughts? Comments? I'd love to hear your opinions. Linking up with Molly for YOLOMondays!

PS: Tuning in to see how my date went? Well, you'll just have to come back tomorrow. :)


  1. i thought taylor swift looked awful as well. she looked absolutely incredible at the people's choice awards, so to follow it up the way she did here was just terrible. her dress was wrinkled and the style/neckline was weird, too.

    1. Yeah, I agree that Taylor was disappointing. I was hoping for something bright or bold and the weirdly fitting dress + slicked hair was unfortunate.

  2. I agree with almost everything. Kaley Cuoco is unrecognizable.

  3. Oh my gosh, how I missed Sienna Miller until now - I have no idea. I don't understand her look. At all.


  4. We had very similar opinions! Posting the Kaliwood Fashion Awards tomorrow! (Jan 15) Here:

  5. I agree with all your worsts...Julianne's was my favorite!

  6. I wanted to put Jennifer Lawrence on my best list, but from the side, that bodice was like Madonna's cone boobs. I couldn't.

  7. I agree with your list. I also thought Naomi Watts and Frances Fisher both looked lovely, Nicole Ritchie and Emily Mortimer looked awful, and I just felt bad for poor Kristen Bell - her maternity evening gown was horrendous!


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
