The Golden Globes were last night, and, as usual, the only thing worth talking about is the fashion, and Robert Downey Jr’s speech, because he’s RDJ, and he can do no wrong.
Here are a bunch of photos from the red carpet, as well as some commentary. It was raining in Los Angeles last night, so credit to those who braved the weather, which turned the Golden Globes into a Golden Shower (*snicker*).
First up, the dresses in muted colors. These are never my favorite.
Christina Hendricks’ golden globes would look better draped in something else. Like some Don Draper-ing maybe. Hey now! (Last bad joke, I promise.)
Christina Aguilera looks shockingly natural and classy (for her).
Drew Barrymore, being even more Drew Barrymore-y than usual, only in a boring gown.
See this look here on Emily Blunt’s face? This is why I don’t understand, Jim Halpert.
Maggie Gyllenhaal always looks like she has a Fashion Design 101 class make her dress, this time out of papier machÃ©.
Oh, Pam. How do you manage to look dowdy in a strapless dress?
Harrison Ford looks like a guy who eats a lot of steak. Clearly he just likes to have a toothpick around whenever he needs one.
Anna Kendrick, that dress is way too old for you. More “Twilight,” less “Up in the Air,” please.
Chloe Sevigny actually looks … still like Chloe Sevigny.
Not many people can pull off the drama of pure white, so props to Kate Hudson for trying (Stripper shoes, Kate? Really?).
As usual, there were tons of black dresses on the red carpet. It’s a safe color, hard to mess up.
… Unless you’re Halle Berry and you’re feeling saucy.
I love Julia Roberts. She always looks like she doesn’t really care what she looks like, but manages to look amazing anyway.
January Jones looks cold. Not Betty Draper cold, just kind of chilly.
Penelope Cruz always looks the same: glamorous, beautiful, safe.
Courtney Cox looks good. So does Jennifer Aniston (photo via Jezebel). Again, it’s tough to ruin a black dress.
… Unless you’re the designer who decided Julianne Moore doesn’t need full use of her arms.
Even Mariah Carey’s boobs can’t ruin this gown, as hard as they’re trying.
We get it, Tina Fey. You’re cute, quirky. And apparently only four feet tall.
And finally, here are the brave souls who went with color. These dresses are always most interesting to me.
Purple was a popular choice, and I think Sandra Bullock rocked it the best.
Jane Krakowsi is doing that slouchy model pose. Has that ever looked good?
I like the color of Leona Lewis’s dress, but hate the fabric.
Heidi Klum just had a baby, still looks amazing. And yet, I can’t hate her.
Green also was a popular choice. I feel like I’ve seen Sigourney Weaver in it before, though.
Jane Lynch rocks my favorite accessory on a dress: pockets.
I can’t say this is my favorite shade of green, Gabourey Sidibe. Do better at the Oscars.
The bright blue, the pixie hair — Ginnifer Goodwin is almost too precious.
Carey Mulligan, I have no idea who you are, but your midnight blue dress is my favorite of the bunch. Also, you look like Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Marion Cotillard, I’d tell you your slip is showing, but you’re French, so I’m sure that’s the idea.
Cameron Diaz always looks great. Always. (Kinda hate those shoes, though.)
Mo’Nique doesn’t shave her legs, thinks it’s hilarious.
And finally, the worst dress of the night: Diane Kruger’s couture bridesmaid dress. How bad is it? Diane’s face says it all.
