2015 Golden Globe Awards, Part 2

Let’s continue one of the year’s most epic bitchfests, dear readers.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS*

*etc. until the end of time

Runner-UpLORDE

Flawless. The wide-leg pants could have read as too Liza, but the of-the-moment crop keeps this look fresh rather than disco-dated. The jewelry is phenomenal and the red pout is perfect. This is the way to work lady-pants at a formal event.

Honorable MentionALLISON WILLIAMS
gown by Armani Privé

By a mile, the best she’s ever looked. Her preppy Donna Karan gowns of the past never did anything for her, but she’s a fucking glamour queen in this magical couture gown. Also, can we talk about the guy behind her? That’s clearly his reaction to someone asking him what he thought of Marnie’s sex scene in the Girls premiere.

SOPHIE HUNTER and BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH

Benedict is obviously a god amongst men, but I was unaware that his fiancé is also awesome. Her Erdem gown is stylish as hell, but sweet and demure. And obviously, if it has pockets, I’m nearly always on board.

ANNA KENDRICK

I want to be her so badly, it’s getting a little weird.

SIENNA MILLER
gown by Miu Miu, jewelry by Tiffany & Co., shoes by Jimmy Choo

She looks like a vintage wedding Pinterest board, but I don’t actually hate it. At least it looks like an intentionally quirkly mish-mash, instead of a mistake.

KATE HUDSON

I’m hoping that glittery rib cages don’t become a trend, but to be honest, I don’t hate this. It’s not at all my style, but Kate looks more put together here than she has in ages. I think a pop of color in her lipstick or nails would have gone a long way, but it’s definitely glamorous and statement-making.

JESSICA LANGE
gown by J. Mendel

The dress is a little overworked, but if anyone is woman enough to pull it off, it’s Jessica Lange.

ALAN CUMMING
tuxedo by Calvin Klein, shoes by Christian Louboutin

Is it weird that I love this? I can’t decide if this is bold and cool, or I’m just having some sort of mental breakdown, and thinking shiny nude tuxedos are cool is the first symptom.

GINA RODRIGUEZ
gown by Badgley Mischka, jewelry by Chopard, shoes by Jimmy Choo

She might be the most endearing actress in the universe. I cried during her acceptance speech, and I don’t even watch her damn show. Anyway, I like the detailing at the bottom of the gown, but the rest of this look is a little too ordinary. Now that she’s got a major award under her belt, I hope she starts turning up the volume on the red carpet.

LENA DUNHAM
gown by Zac Posen

Well, it’s certainly not the worst thing she’s worn, right? Like too many Zac Posen looks, it’s got more seaming than it needs, and I don’t know how Lena managed to get this thing looking so wrinkled before the show even started. I also would have stayed far away from the matchy-matchy shoes. But, hey, she doesn’t look like a toddler’s birthday cake, so I guess we’ll have to call that a victory.

JAKE GYLLENHAAL and MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL

Maggie’s gown by Miu Miu

He: continues to be as gorgeous as he ever was. She: is really trying my patience with that aggressively underwhelming gown. It’s one of the prettier bridesmaid dresses I’ve seen, but it’s boring as hell on the red carpet. And while Maggie’s style is sometimes perplexing, she at least usually gives me something to talk about. This is just Ambien in dress form. But without the fun, trippy side effects.

DAKOTA JOHNSON
gown and jewelry by Chanel

A gown this glitzy looks absolutely ridiculous when you don’t add much of anything in terms of hair, makeup, or jewelry. But I guess I can’t expect rational decision-making from anyone who agreed to go near Fifty Shades of Grey with a ten-foot pole. Also, welcome back, Guy Who Was Making Faces Behind Allison Williams! This is clearly him trying to describe the disgust he felt watching the Fifty Shades trailer.

VIOLA DAVIS
gown by Donna Karan

NO, VIOLA DAVIS. YOU ARE SO MUCH FUCKING BETTER THAN THIS. YOU ARE NOT A BASIC BITCH. GO HOME AND START OVER.

KATIE HOLMES
gown by Marchesa

Unless Katie is starring in a brunette adaptation of Rapunzel, WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK IS GOING ON WITH HER HAIR?

ROBIN WRIGHT
top and skirt by Ralph Lauren

Just wear a tux, Robin. You can still be comfortable, and wear all black, and be in separates, but you’ll look like the goddamn amazing superstar of a woman you are. This… this is just making me upset.

JENNIFER ANISTON
gown by Saint Laurent, jewelry by Neil Lane

Photo: Jason Merritt/Getty

So she’s just never going to wear anything but this? Ever? I was kind of hoping all the buzz about her dramatic chops in Cake meant that she would make a big red carpet statement, but if anything, she regressed even further into her circa-2002 aesthetic with this ensemble. Also, the placement of that slit is majorly awkward, yes?

ROSAMUND PIKE
gown by Vera Wang

I actually think it’s a fantastic feminist statement that Vera Wang is now making formal nursing bras for the red carpet.

HEIDI KLUM
gown by Atelier Versace

I’m thinking Jennifer Aniston and Heidi Klum must have time-traveled from the 2002 Golden Globes together. I can’t think of a more reasonable explanation for their respective outfits than that.

Worst DressedLANA DEL REY

I’m sorry, Lana, but I do not want to be Part of Your World.

  1. I think the worst part about Rosamund Pike’s dress is that it was designed specifically for her. Like, are you fucking kidding me? It should NOT look that bad if it was designed for her.

    Also, I find it amusing that your best and worst dressed in this post are more or less wearing the exact same thing, but in vastly different colours.

  2. Fucking Lorde! That suit looks gorgeous very unlike the nude thing Alan Cumming (I will never be over that last name, sorry not sorry) has going on. I’m sorry, put that man in a tux and he looks stunning but this? I’m sorry but it isn’t working for me at all.

    Robin Wright looked like she was an early 2000 teen with that combo and I agree, a suit would have been preferable.

    I can’t even with Lena Dunham, aside from the terrible dress, her make up makes her look like she already died once.

    But then there is Anna Kendrick who looks like a fucking fairy princess and can we be best friends yet?!

      I know, I know, Alan looked insane. But I get SO BORED looking at black/navy suit after black/navy suit, and he at least kept me from falling asleep while trying to put these posts together. I’m biased towards anything that helps me stay awake long enough to blog.

      Anna Kendrick = my hero.

  3. Van

    Totally agree with you about JLo!! Everyone was all like “she’s best dressed” and I was just yawning! It’s the same sparkly, body hugging, cleavage baring, bronzed schtick she’s always done but now with a cape!

    • democracydiva – Author

      I don’t blame you at all. It’s definitely not reinventing the wheel. But even a trend that’s been done a thousand times before can feel fresh and new when it’s done right, and that was the vibe I got from that look. But totally understand if it was more exhausting than magical for you.

      • The thing is, I think those kind of dresses are awesome for woman who are a little bit more on the heavy side. So everytime I see a normal sized woman in those things I keep thinking “Why? You should enjoy your body as long as you can, you’ll be stuck with dresses like that soon enough!”

  4. Lana looks like a drugged-out mermaid, but I still feel she looks better than Rosamunde (so ill-fitting!) Robin Wright (WHERE would that ensemble look good? maybe on a model but not her) or Lena Dunham! (Note: i am obsessed with Lana, but still, lol!)
