My Top 10 Golden Globe gowns (updated with videos of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler)

Awards season is here! My favorite is always the Golden Globes. It's the one that kicks off the glam red carpet season but it's always the most fun and relaxed. The stars say it's because champagne is flowing from the time they get down from their limousines, throughout the ceremony and all the way to the after parties. So they're having fun. Unlike the Oscars where alcohol isn't served and so everyone's nervous.

Anyway, this year's red carpet was a little more boring than usual. Although I must admit that there were some dresses that were far out (like Guiliana Rancic's). I'm not averse to strange fashion but I am averse to weird styling. For example, the gown's great but the hair isn't (I'm talking about you, Sarah Hyland) or the makeup failed (Kaley Cuoco). 

So here is my list of who did it everything to perfection:
Salma Hayek knows how to flaunt her unbelievable curves. Don't hide them, sure, but don't expose them either. Instead, make yourself look luscious in a dress that drapes all over your body. It doesn't hurt that the dress is Gucci.

Ariel Winter shows us how to dress your age! I love the saccharine colors on the classic dress shape. I also love how she matched her headband to her shoes. Oh, to be young and have fun with your clothes!

Normally, I am not a fan of big ball gowns. I think they're inconsiderate. You know, you have to make way for them when they pass. I guess that's why stars and brides love them. But Julianne Hough looks amazing in this Monique Lhuillier. Her eye makeup and hair take this white-and-gold gown from bridal to rock glam.

Brides, this is a great look. Simple, soft and sexy. While this is a tame number for Megan Fox (in Dolce & Gabbana), let's take into account that this is one of the first few outings of the wife and new mommy to a little baby. I love how she looks so gorgeous! Moms, eto ang peg!

Here's another one. New mommy Sienna Miller is so adorable in Erdem. I love the pink, the appliques, the shape—so 60s. I even love the no-makeup makeup and slicked back hair. Had she worn big hair, she'd look like she's wearing a costume. 

Zooey Deschanel has got her look down pat. Thick bangs, thick eyeliner, tiny waist, big poufy skirt. Always! But in this red Oscar de la Renta accented by big pearls, she's all class.

New bride Anne Hathaway in white Chanel. So sleek! Love the hair, love the texture of the dress. Love how long and tall she is. Kinda safe, sure, since Anne is known to love being adventurous on the red carpet but I like it. I do!

I love this, too! Michelle Dockery in Alexandre Vauthhier. To be honest, I do think the big shoulders trend is already out but the British actress can really pull off the gold armor and white drapery. Not a lot of women can do that!

Nicole Richie in Naeem Khan. What a surprising color! She used it on her lids, too. I think I want this gown for myself!

Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen. Perfection! Kate always looks like a movie star. Always!

Who're your top picks?

UPDATE! Funny ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler!

Plus Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig!

Crazy people! Love them!

  1. Kate Hudson IS perfect! Got the chance to semi-meet her back in 2011... I pretty much just opened the door for her and showed her to where her dress was waiting for her, but ahhh I treasure that memory! She was pregnant at the time and she was so cute with her chubby cheeks! She was really bubbly too. Haha

  2. Kate Hudson looked absolutely divine in that dress!
