The 2011 Golden Globes last night were a feast of fashionable frocks and handsome men. I'm happy to see the stylists also got my memo regarding green. I think Catherine Zeta Jones in Monique Lhuillier and Elisabeth Moss from Mad Men in Donna Karen knocked it out of the park.
Mila Kunis looked perfect in green Vera Wang and I actually liked Angelina Jolie's green Atelier Versace gown. I was just lamenting the fact that it's impossible to find dresses with sleeves so I hope this trickles down to the designers I can afford!
Many actresses look beautiful in blue at the Golden Globes. I loved Amy Adams in Marchesa much more so than Olivia Wilde who was overwhelmed be her Marchesa mille-feuille style dress. It reminded me of the dress Carrie wore in Paris on Sex and the City. But I did love Mandy Moore in blue Monique Lhuillier.
A baby bump was popular accessory on the red carpet and Jane Krakowski's looked perfect in blue Badgley Mischka. Tina Fey, her co-star on 30 Rock, also looked beautiful in her dark blue L'Wren Scott gown.
My vote for best dressed goes to Emma Stone in this gorgeous Calvin Klein dress. It was so sinple and fresh and age appropriate. Kyra Sedgewick's frothy orange Emilio Pucci dress also looked gorgeous.
Sometimes I wish Juliane Moore wouldn't take so many risks but I liked her pink Lanvin dress. Claire Danes also looked amazing in pink Calvin Klein.
Glee's Lea Michele looked like a pretty pink cupcake in Oscar de la Renta. I would have really loved Natalie Portman's pink Viktor & Rolf dress if they had just left the stem off the flower.
Blush, nude and peach also seemed to be popular colors on the red carpet. I loved Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive and Leighton Meister in Burberry. I don't know any woman who loved her arms so bring on the sleeves!
I thought Carrie Underwood looked gorgeous in Badgley Mischka. While Scarlett Johannson's hair was a bit of a fright, her Elie Saab dress was perfection.
The younger girls didn't disappoint either. Diana Argon from Glee looked gorgeous in J. Mendel and Sarah Hyland of Modern Family looked pretty in Max Azria.
I loved that the young new comer Hailee Steinfeld of True Grit chose to also wear a young up and coming fashion designer Prabal Gurung. She is only 14 and looked perfectly age appropriate. I could easily see her being the next Nicole Kidman who looked pretty in Prada.
I know now everyone loved Jennifer Lopez's whie Zuhair Murad dress but I thought she looked very Elizabeth Taylor old-Hollywood. Jon Hamm's girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt also looked sleek in white.
I thought the top of Eva Longoria's black Zac Posen dress was beautiful but the hem seemed a bit long for her petite frame. Julia Stiles looked gorgeous in her black Ramona Keveza gown too.
I loved Piper Perabo in black Oscar de la Renta with her perfect ponytail and bright lips. I wish Eva Longoria's dress had been this length. Jayma Mays from Glee definitely stepped out of her good girl role with this sexy Alberta Ferretti dress!
It's clear from these two that you don't have to be young to look amazing on the red carpet. Melissa Leo who took home a Golden Globes for her performance in The Fighter looked fabulous in her black sequined dress. I also loved Jane Fonda's gown.
I love when couples look great together and Annette Bening and Warren Beatty and Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks make perfect pairs. Annette, in Tom Ford, took home a Golden Globes for her performance in The Kids are Alright too!
First, I have a crush on all these men for different reasons. Alec Baldwin, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Hemsworth and Justin Beiber all looked great on the red carpet. Alec, call me!
I can't give any fashion awards to Robert Downey Jr. Could someone have made him wear a blue tie at least? But as I tweeted during the show, he was hysterical presenting and I think someone needs to create a Facebook campaign to get his to host the Golden Globes next year. Who's with me?
