Golden Globes 2012 Fashion Scorecard

I’m sure that most of you tuned in to the Golden Globe Awards 2012 on Sunday night…and if not, you caught all the recaps on Twitter! I have to say I think this was one of the best years for fashion at the Globes. I think everybody looking stunning!…or…most everybody. Here are my picks for best and worst dressed on the red carpet:


Emma Stone—Emma absolutely rocks this Lanvin dress and Cartier clutch. For me, she tops the list. The eggplant and red colors in her dress perfectly accentuate Emma’s red hair. The plunging neckline is sexy yet sophisticated. The studded belt gives the whimsical fabric of the gown a modern touch. Overall, I think she looks like a Greek goddess. Perfection!

Reese Witherspoon—Reese looks gorgeous in this red Zac Posen gown while still maintaining her down-to-earth, girl-next-door look. I think red is a great color for her. It gives her a “wow” factor that draws the viewer’s attention to the beauty of the dress and eliminates the need for statement jewelry pieces or dramatic makeup. And who doesn’t spend countless hours trying to replicate her “just-out-of-bed” blonde waves? Reese is a 10.

Sofia Vergara—Ok, let’s be honest…who doesn’t love her? She’s beautiful, funny, talented, and not to mention my personal favorite character on the hit show Modern Family. Sofia has got it all going for her. But how about on the red carpet? I’d say yes. She knows how to accentuate her curves, and this Vera Wang dress does it perfectly. I have to say, I think her hair looks a little flat. A few loose waves might have complimented the texture of the dress. But, she’s still on my hot list. Way to go, Sofia!

Claire Danes—This black-and-white J. Mendel gown looks stunning on Claire. She looks classic and elegant. This Homeland star and winner for best actress in a television drama is on the way to the top.


Angelina Jolie—I know this selection might be controversial. People StyleWatch and other fashion blogs picked Angie to be on their “Best Dressed” lists. I have to disagree. I think the contrast between the red and the cream is too harsh. It makes her look like a comic book character…maybe a vampire? I also have a personal issue with cream-colored silk. I think it’s difficult to work with and often looks cheap and somewhat prom-y. I hate to bash on Angelina because normally I consider her a style icon. But for the Golden Globes, I think she fell short.

Nicole Richie—Not a fan of this Julien Macdonald dress. For me it seems cheap and makes her look older than she actually is. I also think she looks like one of the Real Housewives of New York. She could have done so much better to highlight her awesome bod! Maybe next time, Nicole.

Kelly Osbourne—Although I love Zac Posen, this dress is not right for Kelly. The shape is too harsh. It makes her look like a warrior in battle gear. Kelly has come so far in rebuilding her image. I think she would have done better in something a little more classic.

That’s the score for the Golden Globes 2012. Can’t wait to see our celebs at the next award show!
