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?

Taking the Pixie Plunge

I have always, always wanted to chop ALL my hair off. I have never come close to actually doing it but it remains in my list of things I ‘have to do’. So who’s transformation is the best? I’m a big fan of Michelle Williams’ short hair but not quite as short as below. Et tu?

Oscars 2011: Best Dressed & Other Thoughts

Michelle Williams in Chanel. She killed it. Best Dressed winner for me.

Cate Blanchett in Givenchy Couture. Runner-up for me. So fashionable, she can wear whatever she likes.

Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein. She looked like a bombshell. She wasn’t overdone. Her body looked beautiful but not overexposed.

Hailee Steinfeld in Marchesa. She’s adorable, age-appropriate and well spoken.

Other things I liked: Reese’s hair, Justin Timberlake’s Tom Ford Suit, Penelope’s post-baby boobs, Gwyneth’s white-blonde hair/white-blonde dress, Armie Hammer.

Reese Witherspoon - Oscars 2011 Red Carpet

Things I did not like: Sandra Bullock’s hair, ScarJo’s dress, Amy Adams’ necklace, Jennifer Hudson’s extremely light boobs, Kelly O’s lipstick, Guiliana’s burnished skincolor, Hathaway screaming “Woooo!” into the microphone.

OMG Tavi is Michelle Williams Jr

Isn’t it slightly hard to believe Michelle Williams has gone from this

to this?

Well, she has and it’s great and she’s stunning and she gives hope to all awkward/mousy womankind.

Alas… I can’t help but notice that she and Tavi bear a certain resemblance to each other. Esp Tavi circa now and Michelle circa end of dawson’s creek.

Case in point:

Which one is Michelle and which is Tavi?!?!?! Am I the only one who feels this way?
