Golden Globes Roundup: When Jane Fonda Is Best Dressed, It’s All Downhill From There

19 Jan

So the Golden Globes happened and everyone looked like crap. I am not going to mince words (when do I ever?), but from a fashion standpoint this years awards season is off to a worse start than George Clooney’s claim that he is heterosexual. Seriously though if Stacy Keibler (is that her name?) is your best chance of a beard in a pinch then this country really is going down the tubes.

Let’s start with the good…

Janeeeeeeeeeeeee Foundaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa (Oprah voice)

Jane Fonda in Jack Gussio

Jane Fonda is 74 and knocked it out of the park. I can’t even find a photo of her from the actual red carpet because this old broad couldn’t be bothered to stand next to the dumpy modern day starlets and have her picture taken. But when she took the stage to present I knew she was the night’s winner. She looked hot, age appropriate and a little daring. A triumvirate that no other woman in Hollywood even came close to that night.

Runners Up

Nicole Richie in Julien MacDonald, Salma Hayek in Gucci, Nicole Kidman in Versace and Viola Davis in Pucci.

The fact that Nicole Richie made my list should be an indication of the slim pickins available at the Golden Globes. That being said my favorites all skewed slightly robotic and I am not just talking about Nicole Kidman’s face. I am a sucker for sequins, bodycon and a stud here and there, especially at the Golden Globes which are supposed to be the “fun” Oscars. Viola Davis did not fit in with this trend but I just thought she looked smashing…great color, INSANE body and her hair and accessories really made the look complete.

Great Night for Plus-Sized Gals

Very few women are the size of a toothpick and that can make dressing for an awards show extremely difficult, especially since most designers are clamoring for the most skeletal woman on the red carpet. That being said I thought that the more voluptuous women were some of the best dressed.

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji, Melissa McCarthy in Badgley Mischka and Amber Riley in Badgley Mischka

And now for the bad…

2012 Mila Kunis: 2002 Gwyneth Paltrow Wants Her Dress Back

Last year Mila Kunis was on every best dressed list and this year she is wearing an ABS version of Gwyneth‘s biggest mistake. Fashion cycle, you are a cruel mistress.

Auditioning for Little House on the Prairie Remake

Amanda Peet in Marc Jacobs and Jessica Biel in Elie Saab

Sigh…Amanda Peet you are really cute and I wish you were my celebrity doppelganger…so why are you wearing this tutu gone rogue?

Jessica Biel…someone needs to have an intervention with you, seriously. You supposedly just got engaged to Justin Timberlake and this is what you are wearing?!?! This shmata?!?! Whoever told you that you looked good before you walked out the door should 100% be fired because your outfit was a nightmare.

I really hope people bring it for the Oscars this year or else I might have to stop caring about this pointless pageantry altogether. In case you are wondering where I developed my fashion rage, below are a few choice comments from my mom during our 3+ hour long gchat during the Globes.

Ann Spector’s Greatest Hits

Mommy: Madonna aka Miss Kabbala was wearing a cross the size of the Chrysler Bldg

Niffy: Are you still crushing on viggo mortensen?
Mommy: Yes, good memory

Mommy: Why is he groping her?  Why didn’t he shave wth a new razor?

Mommy: Is his wife also a midget?

Mommy: Helen Scorcese could have gotten her hair done…

Golden Globes Round-Up: Shoulders, Sleeves, Backless, and Green with Envy

18 Jan

My favorite time of year has begun, Redddddddd Carpppettt Seasonnnnnn!!!! (Oprah voice, obviously)

I talked over the entire awards show with my posse so I have no idea who won an actual award, but I knew immediately who won my best dressed.

Best in Show – Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive

She killed it! Hathaway is hosting the Oscars and this dress is clearly a preview of what her and her stylist Rachel Zoe have been cooking up. Love the demure long sleeves, the sparkle, the linebacker shoulder and the low cut back. It fits her like a glove and clearly Team Hathaway has built a great reputation with Armani since last year’s Oscars.

Runner Up – Emma Stone

Emma Stone in Calvin Klein

She looked incredible! I loved the minimalism, the fit was perfect, the color was dreamy and the open back kicked it up a notch. Her new blond hair made a strong impact (apparently her natural hair color) and her presence on the red carpet made me watch Easy A On Demand. Stone was nominated for her role as Olive, a modern day Hester Prynne, although Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson stole the film as her parents.

Emerald Green and Rhiannon

Emerald green made a very strong showing at this year’s globes, with some stars pulling it off better than others (Peggy – love you, hate the pleats.)

Angelina Jolie in Versace, Catherine Zeta-Jones in Monique Lhuillier, Mila Kunis in Vera Wang and Elisabeth Moss in Donna Karan

Another troubling trend was Mother-of-the-Bride disco hippie. Seriously I was so confused by these choices. Sandy and Scarlet are going through divorces, but JLo really has no excuse why she is wearing a cast-off from the Stevie Nicks QVC collection.

Sandra Bullock in Jenny Packham, Scarlet Johansson in Elie Saab, Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad
