The Golden Globes

Did you watch the Golden Globes last night?  It was actually pretty good, I thought.  I love watching E! to see what the celebrities are wearing.  How do you like Olivia Wilde's dress?  One of the best of the night, I thought.  Can Gucci ever do any wrong?  I don't think so! 

Another that I liked was Emily Blunt.

Simply Stunning!!  I believe it was a Christian Lacroix.  Loved all of the ruffles, the sculpting, and the off the shoulder and strapless looks.  I also liked Jodie Foster's dress, but I didn't see a picture of that anywhere.  She must have arrived late or slipped in the back.  Most dresses were just "nice", but there were also a few misses.

Number 1:  Tina Fey.

Tina, Tina, what were you thinking?  The print?  The length?  The horizontal stripes?  The tiers??  Oh my, I have seen you rock the carpet before my dear, but this wasn't rocking anything! 

Number 2:  Jennifer Garner

Girl, you know I love you, but you are too thin here!  A cheeseburger the night before may have helped.  You are stunning, but this color didn't do much for you either.  And where was your date last night?  I would assume babysitting, but Ben was definitely missed not being there by your side.

Number 3 - Marion Cotillard

What is this?  Ripley meets Madonna 80's?  I don't know.  The Gladiator shoes were not working with the hard lines of the dress, the long slit and the peek-a-boo lacy biker shorts!  Ugh!  If you are going to work a high slit in a dress, take note from the pros:

There was only one other catastrophe to report, except for one of the ushers stepping on Chloe Sevigny's ruffled dress - and that was the CLEAVAGE BRIGADE!  Lordy, Lordy...some of these girls needed covered up!!

Ricky Gervais was really funny.  Sometimes inappropriately so, but you kind of expect that on these shows.  Loved how he would introduce people also, giving them a little "jab".  haha  

Of course the celebrities were all wearing ribbons to support funding to help Haiti.  Some stars have donated alot of money, which is admirable.  We can all do our part, but please only give to charities you KNOW that will take your money and actually put it to good use.  Samaritan's Purse and the American Red Cross are two of the top ones.  George Clooney is putting together a telethon to raise money next week.  Let's hope the money goes to a good organization that knows what they are doing with it.
So if anyone is reading this far and watched the award shows last night, let me know what you thought!

AGREED. Tina Fey was a mess, but I've never really cared for Zac Posen's designs. The pose with the umbrella makes it especially unfortunate, too bad about the rain.

Jennifer Garner: agreed. She is a miss more often than a hit. I always find her dresses too tight. Back in the Alias days, she spilled out from the top of them too.

The fashion police in general are loving Marion Cotillard's dress but for me it was a hit on top and a miss on the bottom. You are dead-on right about the shoes being too much. I didn't like the peek-a-boo underwear. The top part was structured nicely and the colour was a nice option from black.

Agreed on Marion's top of her dress and the color. Well, she almost got it right. They need to ask US before the step out of their limo, don't you agree? ;-)
