2014 Golden Globes Red Carpet, Part 3

Let’s finish this, dear readers.

Three cheers for Elisabeth Moss, who managed to give the middle finger to E!’s Mani-Cam (twice!), win a Golden Globe for something other than Mad Men, and curse in her acceptance speech. Quite a night! Most importantly, she did it all in this stunning, embellished J. Mendel gown. I love the combination of black and plum; I love the art deco geometric patterns and beading; I am full-on obsessed with the earrings. The hair looked a little more limp than chic, but everything else about this was a wonderful surprise.

Peplums and crop tops may come and go, but one red carpet accessory will be fabulous forever: Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis’s fetus bedecked in emerald glitter.

Honorable Mention: EMMA WATSON

From the front, this was a lovely if slightly underwhelming red carpet gown. It actually seemed boring and unremarkable, particularly coming from Emma, until she turned around and revealed…

That expression so clearly says, “Haters can hate – I’m wearing pants with my gown, and I LOOK GOOD DOING IT.” I thought this was weird in the best possible way, chic and surprising and youthful and all those other wonderful qualities that Emma Watson possess in spades.

SOMEONE TOLD ALLISON WILLIAMS’S STYLIST HER REAL AGE! Hallelujah for whomever is responsible for the first look in Allison Williams’s red carpet history where she’s not wearing something A) painfully boring, B) unreasonably matronly, or more commonly, C) all of the above. Well done.

So, Laura Dern secretly has the best body in Hollywood. Why is no one talking about this? This woman is a freaking superhero. Love the slinky gown on her as well.

The jacket’s a wee bit short in the sleeves, I think, but I like any man who rocks a color on the red carpet, and that dark green really is lovely. Camila’s dress is pretty ordinary red carpet fare.

It’s almost too precious, and the stick-straight hair isn’t my favorite, but Sarah Paulson was a whimsical little angel in this darling Marchesa dress.

Surprising but sexy. Love the chevron print down her sleeves. I’m not sure the fingercurled bob works so well with that crazy neckline – hair up might have been a little less distracting – but it’s a damn good look regardless.

Definitely better on television than in pictures, and it wasn’t my favorite gown she wore that night, but Tina looked beautiful in this black and pink print. The silhouette is a bit on the princessy side for my tastes, but it works on her.

The dress is lovely, but just not interesting enough to really grab my attention. And I’m never a fan of that strangely stiff, brushed-back thing Jessica occasionally does with her otherwise-stunning hair. But that necklace is so heavenly, I can’t really look at anything else.

Loving the beard, Mr. Pine! Aren’t you all distinguished and fancy?

You can’t make this woman look bad, but you can put her in a dress I’ve seen a thousand times before, that has probably been on every awards show red carpet for the last fifteen years. The color definitely works on Reese, but this seems like the only gown Calvin Klein ever makes.

SHOSH GOT A BOB! Oh my God, this haircut might be the best thing in the universe. I hope it inspires a complete overhaul of Zosia’s entire wardrobe, because this woman has been a red carpet disaster in the past. But her Reem Acra gown is lovely, if a little unremarkable, so I’ve got hope for her in the future.

Another nice-but-too-ordinary look. Julia tends to look beyond gorgeous at these events, but I was hoping for something just a little bit riskier.

What the fuck happened to everyone’s hair at this event? Is Melissa McCarthy actually wearing a Bump-It?! Such a shame, since the dress is pretty cool and the purse is absolutely gorgeous, but I am not on board with that hair.

I’m all for interesting and risky and surprising, but this is seventeen different dresses rolled into one. And the baby-pink purse with the ivory-blush shoes – how many shades of pink does one woman really need to wear at the same time? I’m usually a fan of Zoe’s riskier looks, but this? No.

I suppose I should be applauding Sofia for not wearing a mermaid gown, but she’s still wearing her body weight in turquoise jewelry. I guess it’s a wash.

Emma Stone has barely been on the red carpet at all in the last year. Clearly, she’s gotten rusty in her time off, because this awkwardly proportioned Chanel situation is really not working.

You are a grown-up. You do not need to wear ALL of the shades of purple.

Worst Dressed: JULIA ROBERTS

A white button-down under a dress? This might be as offensive as a sewage leak on the red carpet.

  1. I think that Hayden Panetierre’s dress is one of THE WORST ever. The lines are so unflattering. She has no pretty curves. Her shoulders look huge. Her hair looks dirty/greasy to me.

    Melissa McCarthy said she partly designed the dress which I think is dreadful. The design reminds me of a bad trick used on PR when a designer throws a piece of fabric or a ruffle down the front and calls the dress an original design. It’s more difficult for a large woman to look glamorous, but it can be done. I love, love, love Melissa. Can’t stand the dress.

    As I recall, both Sofia’s and Jessica’s bodices moved when they moved. I don’t care for that kind of stiff construction.

    Both Zosia and Elisabeth Moss looked terrific when I saw them on the red carpet. Their looks don’t translate so well in still photos. Zosia’s haircut is great. Elisabeth should go back to blonde.

    A agree with you that Reese always wears the same dress but something worked this time. This color brings out everything good about Reese.

    I love Sarah Paulson’s dress, but since watching Project Runway, I realize that these muted colors do not photograph well. The dress is almost fairy princess.

    Nice job covering the red carpet, D. Diva. Lots of looks to sift through.

  2. Wow, what happened to the Golden Globes this year?Terrible hair and, if possible, even worse dresses! I only liked the first three–though Elizabeth Moss’ hair kind of ruins the look.
    Hayden Panettiere looks gross and awkward.Zoe’s dress had potential if you took one theme and stuck with it–and why is she holding her stomach like that?? Reese looks like she stepped out of the Teen Choice Awards circa 2000 or something, and Zosia Mamet looks like an old woman. I could go on and on, but I’ll just leave the ranting at that 😛 love your posts!

      Never stop ranting! Thanks so much for all your love and comments. And I don’t even know what the hell happened with the hair at this event. It was an epidemic of awful hairstyles. Also, I giggled out loud at your Teen Choice Awards reference – that is spot-on.
