2013 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet, Part 3

Welcome, dear readers, to the third and final portion of the fabulous Golden Globes red carpet. 

Best Dressed: AMY POEHLER

AMY. FUCKING. POEHLER. I honestly did not think I could love her more. Because I love her a lot. Like, WEIRD, a lot. Like, I want there to be a nude centaur painting of me like there is of Leslie Knope so I can yell “I AM DIAPHENA!,” a lot. And THEN she pulls out this beyond sexy lady-tux, with her stunning diamonds and those PHENOMENAL shoes (and Amy does not usually excel in the shoe department). But everything from the plunging neckline to the shit-eating grin said, “Gentlemen, please! One at a time! Excuse me while I nuzzle with George Clooney!”

TAYLOR’S WEARING A COLOR! AND IT’S NOT RED! It took me a minute to recognize her in this eggplant color, to be honest. But I loved the neckline and the double-straps, and even the mermaid shape didn’t bother me too much, since I can only expect so many fashion miracles from T.Swift in a single evening. Oh, and the old Hollywood hair? DELICIOUS, and not just because my head would explode if I had to see her Disney princess curls styled exactly the same way at yet another red carpet event.

Honorable Mention: NICOLE KIDMAN

Talk about statuesque – Nicole looks about eleven feet tall in this stunning McQueen gown. I thought I’d gotten tired of black and gold McQueen gowns, but this one is so unique and interesting. And the soft hair and makeup made Ms. Kidman look so much less severe than she has in recent years.

Stunning color, and I don’t even hate the train. It’s a fantastic silhouette on her, showing just that sliver of skin so she doesn’t look too covered up, what with the long sleeves. And the earrings are just delicious.

Simple silhouette, stunning results. Perfect hair, makeup, jewelry, and fit – this is what you wear when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association loves you enough to let you give an awesomely long, drunk, rambling speech about privacy and Honey Boo Boo Child.

I’m over peplums on the red carpet, and I think the shoulders are a little stupid, but man, what a color. Absolutely heavenly, particularly on Rosario.

I would say they’re too perfectly beautiful to be real, but the gold-on-gold purse was a bad idea, so I guess they’re human after all. Or at least, Emily is. Jury’s still out on whether John Krasinski is actually an alien sent to make us all fall in love with paper salesmen.

I think this color is beyond fantastic, the bodice is gorgeous, the fit is amazing, and even though that giant asymmetrical train isn’t quite my style, it’s expertly done and damn gorgeous. The necklace was a stroke of genius, and the hair and makeup have a vintage-glam vibe that I’m digging. But what the fuck is going on with that clutch? Did she skin a Muppet to make that purse?

That weird triangle looked better on television – I think it’s kind of awkward and odd in retrospect, though. Still, it was a damn sexy night for the SNL alum. And the gold bracelet and clutch look lovely.

That purse is COMICALLY large, and her hair and makeup are really not formal enough for the event. Quite a shame, because the dress is beautiful and interesting, but aside from the necklace, this was some weak-ass styling.

George, tell your lady that center-parted, stick-straight locks haven’t been cool on the red carpet since approximately 2001. And her simple-to-the-point-of-boring dress could really have used some more bling, particularly a necklace.

Thanks for showing us something we’ve seen on every red carpet for the last fifteen years, Isla.

Too bridal, yet also too naked – this didn’t support her ample breasts nearly enough, which made the fit and proportions of the gown look a little off. Mostly, though, it was too on-the-nose for Cosette, don’t you think?

Yes, Zosia, you’re a fascinatingly interesting hipster. Now will you put some goddamn lipstick on like you’re actually at the fucking Golden Globes?

Very expected, in color, silhouette, and styling. There was a lot of red on this red carpet, but this was by far the most forgettable of all the crimson looks.

This dress totally overwhelmes her tiny frame (I mean, even pregnant, she’s still impossibly small). The neckline is, pardon my Yiddish, ungapatchket, and the little gap of space across her bust looks accidentally, like they ran out of frippery to cover the bodice in halfway through making it and just gave up. Love the purse, though!

Sarah, you’re young and beautiful and you could be wearing tons of fabulous, fashion-forward shit. Please don’t look to Sofia Vergara for your fashion cues, or you’ll be stuck in mermaid gowns forever.

You look like a cupcake. It’s ridiculous.

The gown is depressing and sloppy, the shoes look terrifying, and the number of bracelets she’s wearing is absolutely insane.

Is she wearing it inside-out? What other explanation could there be for how terrible this looks?

Worst Dressed: HALLE BERRY

This reeks of desperation so badly, I’m actually uncomfortable. Will someone just give her whatever role or award she’s looking for so she can stop dressing like this, for God’s sake? I don’t think I can take much more of this.

Still craving more fabness? Don’t miss Part 1 and Part 2 of the Golden Globes red carpet!

  1. Kaitlyn

    I just vomited in my mouth when I saw that picture of Debra Messing. Who let her think that was ok?

  2. Demi

    I actually LOVED Emily Blunt’s dress and I do agree that Amy Poehler looked fab as well. I love her on Parks and Rec

  3. So, no, Debra Messing doesn’t look any better on her own. Kristen Bell’s look was also majorly unfortunate. Pregnant women get a general pass on the red carpet, but I have no idea who thought all that embellishing up top was a good idea for her. Sarah Hyland looks like an aging southern beauty queen.

    MOSTLY, I AM ACTUALLY COMMENTING TO TELL YOU THAT I LOVE YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU SAID ABOUT AMY, ESPECIALLY THIS: “Like, I want there to be a nude centaur painting of me like there is of Leslie Knope so I can yell “I AM DIAPHENA!,” a lot.
