Golden Globe Gowns

Filed under Awards Season

The 68th Annual Golden Globes was one of the most enjoyable awards ceremonies that I have ever had the pleasure of attending. For the most part, I accredit that to host Ricky Gervais. His introductions did not let me down and neither did the fashion.

With a sweetheart neckline and a personality to match, Milla Jovovich was ever so inviting in her Armani Privé gown.

And, speaking of great personalities, I have to give an honorable mention to Claire Danes who was an absolute dear. While her gown’s silhouette lacked a certain something, the bright coral was lovely, complimenting her ever vibrant demeanor.

Fantails were another common thread on the red carpet, with the prize going to Lea Michele who was pretty and playful in a cascading pink Oscar de la Renta gown.

Jennifer Lopez looked stunning in a pale Marchesa ensemble complete with dainty shall, while Anne Hathaway combined conservative and sexy in her backless Armani Privé gown. Anne’s long sleeves seemed to be the style of the court this year.

I for one am thrilled to see them back in vogue. Long sleeves create a truly elegant, seamless look, rarely sported in Hollywood, where starlets often believe that less fabric equals more publicity. Leighton Meester also looked divine in her sophisticated long-sleeved Burberry gown.

Paris Hilton, who did not even attend the ceremony, stood out to me at the Weinstein & Relativity Media After party, wearing a sensational Jean Fares Couture gown. It was a shame that it had no stage time, as it was the kind of dress that I would have liked to see on the winner of the Best Leading Actress.
