2012 Golden Globes, My Best and Worst

Well the awards season as officially taken off… and I am excited for the fashion! Let’s talk 2012 Golden Globe awards! Best and Worst, GO!

Best: *Claire Danes in J. Mendel looks edgy and sophisticated at the same time. This dress is structured and sexy in the places that certainly fit Claire (hello back and bum).

*Selma Hayak in Gucci makes me actually love sequins and shine. Her dress may not be the most inventive but I think she looks gorgeous.

Best: *Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci is a vision. I know the feathers might not be for everyone but she truly embraces being fashion forward and Lordy, I love her!  

*Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann. Dude, you have got to give her mad fashion props. She looks F.I.E.R.C.E and makes a feminine color look almost masculine. Am I right? 

*Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen looks happy and she wears it well. Almost like Jessica Rabbit (in a good way), she looks sexy and classy. Tousled hair? I approve.

Best: *Emma Stone in Lanvin, there is nothing wrong with this look. That belt? Genious. The colorblocking? Genious. She is most definitely a stunner. Now, I didn’t notice  

*Laura Dern‘s dress until she won her Golden Globe but I am really digging the green beaded jersey number. Who designed it? I couldn’t tell you. Like I said, I missed her on the red carpet. 

*Michelle Williams in Jason Wu. The reason I love this gown so much is that it is so different from everything that everyone else is wearing. Navy, velvet cutouts? Yeah, I didn’t think I would love it that much either. I definitely feel her channeling Mia Farrow this go around.

Best Hair: *Charlize Theron and her glittery headband/ side bun type look.  *Kate Winslet’s side waves and effortless elegance.  *Tilda Swinton’s shaved up the side, volume on the top jobbie… something we all wish we had the balls for.

Worst: *Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen. I don’t know if it’s her purply gray hair or that the dress seems like it needed to be steamed a little more but I just think she looks off and not nearly as fabulous as she could. Not a win, Kelly. 

*Sarah Michelle Gellar in Monique Lhuillier… gasp! This is not the way to make your red carpet comeback SMG. While I don’t hate the blue and white dye effect that much, I just think this dress to puffy and had it been more fit and flare, I wouldn’t detest it so much. It’s just a lot. Zoom in and her makeup is all blue and sparkly too. Just not as classy as I would like…

…. and as much as I hate to do this, *Zooey Deschanel. From her side bangs, to the collar to the front of that dress… I get she was going for “cute, zany girl” but I don’t understand the white/silvery collar to the lime green then I think olive green… and I know it’s Prada, but I still don’t like it.

Worst: *Lea Michele looks like a hot silver feathery mess in Marchesa. I don’t get it and I don’t get people’s obsession with her. Dare I say it’s kind of a little whore-ish (sorry Marchesa!)… 

I know I will get some heat for this but I am not feeling *Angelina Jolie‘s look this year. In her Atelier Versace, it’s like the red was an afterthought and just thrown on. While I don’t mind that she matched her purse and lips to the dress, why not wear the red shoes to boot? It almost seems disjointed without it. Yeah, I just think she has looked better and I don’t understand why more fashionistas didn’t question the taste of this… are we scared of Angelina? (a post for another day)

*Diana Agron, you are so cute, why the crazy red, lacy, ruffled, cutout concoction? It’s just far too much. I am not familiar with Giles but I am not impressed.


Do you have your favorites that I am missing? Do you disagree with my best and worst?

Fave Casual Looks:  Cameron Diaz looks super cute and effortless in white skinnies and black heels and shirt coming out of her NYC hotel this Summer. Hillary Duff joins ‘Danskin: Move For Change’ and looks ADORBS with her baby belly and still looks gorge. Kate Winslet looks so much better than I do by just throwing on a scarf and while I am jealous, I still heart her big time.

Sophisticated and Simple: Anne Hathaway attends the “The Iron Lady” New York premiere and looks so put together with simple chic. Evan Rachel Wood at the 2011 GUCCI Awards For Women and Katie Holmes at the Jack and Jill premiere has a pop of color that make me swoon without going outside the box too much.

Retro Chicks: Evan Rachel Wood looks like a modern day flapper at the LACMA Art + Film Gala this past November. Have I ever mentioned that I love Evan Rachel Wood? Rachel McAdams attends The Cinema Society & Thierry Mugler screening of “Midnight in Paris”has that old Hollywood kind of thing going… and Mama likes it. Scarlett Johansson at the “I Bought a Zoo” premiere has this pinup-esque look that I think is gorgeous and totally attainable. LOVED IT.

Evan Rachel Wood, Again

I am pretty obsessed with Evan Rachel Wood lately. (Please see previous posts) She has that rockin’ new haircut (that I am so jealous of and want) and she has this really defined sense of style, which has been very centered around menswear and tailored looks. Her new film Ides of March and HBO mini series Mildred Pierce has granted her the opportunity to hit some really great events and sport some really great looks. I can’t choose which my favorite one is for sure but I do know that I have just picked up two new tailored blazers and am on the prowl for some blouse-y collared numbers (suggestions/recommendations welcome). What do you think? Evan Rachel Wood, so totally crush-worthy, right?
