Nothing like a solid Legally Blonde quote to best describe my feelings after tuning in to the 2014 Golden Globes on Sunday. Although there were definitely some hits, I can count the amount of “gasp!” moments on an alien’s 3 fingered hand.
There is lots to discuss so let’s get started:
There is a range the size of Texas of opinions on both of these looks. But I think Zoe’s Prabal Gurung cocktail frock was a breath of fresh fashion air! While JLaw’s Dior appeared ill fitting and uncomfortable.
Most likely to make me buy more midnight blue:
There’s something about midnight blue. It’s like black, but cooler. Amber Heard in Versace and Adel Exarchopoulos (please get new, shorter last name thanks) in Mui Mui. Stunning!
Most likely to make younger actresses look bad:
Are these the bodies of a 45 and 68 year old?!!? Not any that I know! Robin Wright and Helen Mirren look better in these gowns than most women half their age. Helen in Jenny Packham and Robin in Reem Acra.
Reese Witherspoon in Calvin Klein – Joan Rivers said “I have never seen a floor length sports bra”. Couldn’t have said it better myself Joan.
Amy Adams in Valentino – pretty sure I have this maxi dress and have worn it to multiple summer BBQ’s.
Kate Mara in J Mendel – All I can see is the butt on her chest and the Judy Jetson sleeves. I love her and I love J Mendel. Wish she would have worn this one instead (sorry E Moss).
Lena Duhnam in Zac Posen – She’s so uncomfortable she’s posen like she can’t breathe 😉
Julie Bowen in Carolina Hererra – this has all of the ingredients for a do but managed to be a don’t. Those puff sleeves, that matchy matchy clutch…just doesn’t work sister.
Most likely to become a fashion leader:
Margot Robbie in Gucci – she was the most searched name on Bing Sunday night. I think I know why…Perfection!
My #1 pick for Best Dressed at the 2014 Globes is….
Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive! She is the very definition of REGAL but manages to always remind you that she is a sexy lady. I want to be her when I grow up Mom.
See you at the Oscar’s!
