Ricky Gervais had celebs sweating bullets last night at the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards and a couture gown with pit stains is a red carpet nightmare. If only their Dolce & Gabbana tuxedos, Louboutin heels, and cherry lipstick could magically deflect the sting of Ricky’s one-liners. Alas, with all of the pre-hosting hype, celebs seemed prepared for Gervais and nothing was too shocking. Yet some of their forced chuckles, awkward blank stares and unamused expressions were just as entertaining as his Hollywood jabs.
While no one was safe from his jokes, there is one thing stars could control and that is how they looked on the red carpet. Some of Hollywood’s royalty (and their stylists) struck out, while other’s knocked it out of the ball gown park.
Here’s my list of winners and worst dressed last night:
BEST~ In the Land of Beauty and Hotness on the red carpet, Angelina was my FAVORITE.
Even a hardcore Team Aniston fan couldn’t deny Jolie was flawless from head to toe in Atelier Versace.
BEST~ The old ball & cane. Brad was Angie’s best accessory last night in his Salvator Ferragamo
3-piece tuxedo. He was dashing, as was George Clooney, even though I’m usually not a fan of shoulder length locks on guys.
WORST ~ It’s cute Sarah Michelle Gellar’s 2-year-old daughter picked out her dress, but this swirly madness is better suited for a screensaver and her slicked back pony is perfect for Pilates class.
BEST ~ She’s not an actress but Nicole Richie stunned in this silver gown. Her hair (from the back) posted on Facebook was styled perfectly. Can’t wait for her new show this March with Jessica Simpson called ‘Fashion Star’
WORST~ I really like Kelly Osborne on E!’s Fashion Police, and she looks pretty in this Zac Posen dress, but I can’t stand her white hair. Are you a fan of the ‘grey’ or say ‘no way’ on her?
BEST~Adam Levine didn’t even need his supermodel girlfriend as arm candy last night. AskMen fashion says it best, ‘You can never go wrong with Tom Ford.’
BEST~ Charlize Theron may play a spoiled brat in her new must-see movie, ‘Young Adult,’ but she looked angelic and gorgeous in couture Dior and a sparkling head band.
WORST~The only thing worse than Gerard Butler in the ‘Bounty Hunter’ is this ill fitted 3 piece tux with pleats. Other risk takers included one of the night’s big winners, Matt Leblanc, in a navy blue tux. Go Joey!
BEST ~ Sofia Vergara can pull off almost any dress with her killer curves and I loved this jewel tone, detailed Vera Wang gown. The only thing I would do is add a little volume to her hair.
There were so many more show stopping looks and a few more worst dressed. If you love the critiquing the red carpet, tune into tonight’s E! Fashion Police Golden Globe’s special. Joan Rivers never fails to make me laugh. It’s not just the gown that makes the best dressed list, it’s everything including heels, hair, makeup and accessories that make or break the look.
If I missed them, who were your favorites or red carpet failures of the night?
