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?)
Angelina Jolie in Versace (left) and Anne Hathaway in Armani Privé (right.) So nice to see long sleeves, big shoulders, and some 30's glamour.
the minimalist girls: Claire Danes (left) and Emma Stone (right), both in Calvin Klein Collection.
Scarlett Johansson in sparkly, flowy Elie Saab (left,) and Natalie Portman in Viktor & Rolf (right.) What a great choice of brand for Portman, such a surprise!
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.
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.)
