Globes Best Dressed

Impressed: MVPs

Davis
If you saw The Help, you know Viola Davis did a fantastic job but looked about 60. At the Globes, she looked fresh, young and rocked up. Most Impressive.
Danes
I usually like what Claire Danes wears (that might be because I adore her hubby, Hugh Dancy). But she does tend to play it safe. Her dress at the GG was nothing but fabulous.
Mara
Rooney Mara seems to have completely changed her personality, along with her looks for the role as Lisbeth Salander. Whatever she’s done, she looks gorgeous &she worked it in that gorgeous black gown.
Biel
A lot of people hated Jessica Biel’s lacy, cream confection. I was not one of them. I thought she looked darling and different. Plus, did you see her strut in that thing?

Well Played: Played it safe and it served them well.

Witherspoon, Vergara, Jolie, Kidman – all in figure-flattering silhouettes with great hair and makeup.

Unimpressed: Disappointed

Chastain
I’m really into Jessica Chastain. I keep routing for her but she continually disappoints me. I would rather have seen her in an outfit from The Help.
Kunis
Mila Kunis looked so great all last season. The glimpse of her nipple was the most exciting thing about this dismal dress.
Deschanel
I want to like Zooey Deschanel but I just can’t. And to quote the Eagles, I can’t tell you why. I can tell you I have no idea what she wore to the Globes because her hair was absolutely HORRIFYING.

I Expected More From

Portman
Natalie Portman
This is basically the first time we’ve seen Natalie on the red carpet in a year. The dress/hair are boring and she obviously has a great body… I’m disappointed.
Williams
I absolutely love Michelle Williams. Therefore, I think I hold her to a higher standard. I think she looks darling but I wish she looked phenomenal.
Winslet
Kate is another favorite of mine. I hate this dress, it doesn’t fit and certainly doesn’t do anything for her lovely figure.
Gosling

Where the F was he?

Well Done in Cannes

In France, people look better. I’ve been giving some scathing reviews lately, so I thought I’d point out the pretty people for once!

I’m a big Rachel McAdams fan. I love her look and I am always intrigued by her style choices. This LWD is lovely on her figure and manages not to wash her out. I am jealous that she can pull off the long-bangs-parted-in-the-middle look.

I’m sure this red number is more polarizing but I am really liking it. Her body is incredible and it’s DIFFERENT. Thank god for some variation on the Red Carpet. Do you like the visible seam going down her back? I kinda think I do…

OMG Uma! Where have you been? She looks absolutely gorgeous. Everything is completely spot-on (save maybe the slightly straggly hair). Women like Uma make me wish I was 5’10” and statuesque.

Salma & Angelina were notable.

Finally, she wasn’t at Cannes but I have to give credit where it’s due and I’m already in the process of writing this post. Rosie Victoria Secret-Transformers is a barbie doll come to life. It’s really no wonder that the menfolk voted her as the the “hottest woman in the world. I have to say, in this dress, I agree.
