68th Annual Golden Globes Red Carpet

Many celebrities on the Golden Globe red carpets appeared to have been inspired by old school glamour (maybe thanks to Tom Ford?), as we saw a lot of beautiful full length, bias or curve-hugging, long-sleeved gowns with mild 30′s inspiration. There as very little sluttiness and skin on show, lots of long sleeves and high necklines. This whole look was very refreshing, whereas the strapless ball gowns looked totally dated. (Speaking of Tom Ford, why was no one wearing one of his dresses on the red carpet? Or did I just miss it? Only Colin Firth?)

I love…

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Golden Globes, red carpet, celebrity fashion, Versace, Anne Hathaway, Armani Privé

Golden Globes, red carpet, celebrity fashion, Claire Danes, Emma Stone, Calvin Klein Collection

Golden Globes, red carpet, celebrity fashion, Scarlett Johansson, Elie Saab, Natalie Portman, Viktor & Rolf

I loathe…

Golden Globes, red carpet, celebrity fashion, January Jones, Kelly Osbourne, Versace, Zac Posen

January Jones looking very slutty in Versace (left.) And why was Kelly Osbourne even invited to the Golden Globes (right)? She looks absolutely ridiculous in that Zac Posen ball gown, so wrong for her.

Golden Globes, red carpet, celebrity fashion, Eva Longoria, Zac Posen, Helena Bonham Carter, Vivienne Westwood

Eva Longoria looking terribly dated in Zac Posen (left,) and Helena Bonham Carter looking like a train wreck in Vivienne Westwood (right.) (She should have swapped outfits with Kelly Osbourne.)

Golden Globes, red carpet, celebrity fashion, Lea Michele, Oscar de la Renta, Leighton Meester, Burberry

    We have a very similar “best dressed” list, except mine included Tilda Swinton in Jil Sander and I loved January’s Versace (she made it look great but on a wrong person, it would have been a disaster) and Leighton’s Burberry (thought it was hip and pretty).

    I hate prom princess gowns and anything mermaid. Makes me cringe.

    I need to check out Tilda Swinton’s dress, she always looks amazing!

    Speaking from a guy’s perspective; however, one that is (fairly?) informed about fashion…. I would have liked to see you include Megan Fox in Armani Prive, Alexandra → No, not because she’s “Megan Fox”, but because that was clearly the most interesting, colorful, and beautful dress of the evening which actually “suited” her age and (movie-starness?) … Anyways, ALWAYS ♥ your POSTS, Alexandra!! ☆

    Yes, I missed out on quite a few dresses. Megan Fox’s dress looked nice on
    her, but it felt way too pink and pretty compared to the others. I can see
    how you say it suits her age, but I really have to say I was blown away by
    the long sleeves and covered up dresses worn by some of the others. It is
    too easy to put on an (almost) strapless, tight bodice dress with a huge
    slit.

    I don’t think Megan Fox can qualify for the best dressed list. It is so predictable – young actress with a nice body wears some curve hugging dress with some sparkling elements here and there and of course a leg (or two) has to be seen. I love that color on Angelina, Emma Stone is more orange than her dress. The list you made is perfect though, the good and the bad!
