A quick run down of my faves and well, not so faved, dresses on the Red Carpet last night, for those of you who missed my live tweeting (is there any other kind?!) of the red carpet antics.
Yes, Tina Fey was my favourite. I'm sad but not surprised to see her on some of the worst dressed lists this morning, but I think she looks, fun & flirtatious in this unusual Zac Posen (resort 2010 identified by BlueFly.com yesterday amidst the chaos) Vintage inspired dress with modern touches such as the amazing print, I was undecided on the length all yesterday, but in retrospect I adore it. It gives the dress the edge that it needs. I love and I want (and it makes me more excited for the Zac Posen for Target collection coming soon – is Zac posen the darling of 2010? – well mine anyway!)
Golden Globes was the pun of the night with Christina Hendricks epic wobblers confined to a beautiful Christian Siriano dress, Mr. Style aka my husband Scott, added her to his 'list' last night, wishing for just one night with them..ahem, her.
Mariah Carey on the other hand exposed her's not so fantastically in a rather severe black bandage dress by Hervé Léger by Max Azria. I felt it was tacky, and to be honest kind of expected from this diva.
Anna Paquin was another favourite of the night (and just a favourite in general) in Stella McCartney, she looked radiant on the red carpet with her fiance Stephen Moyer. Anna dressed in a sweeping and plunging, gold beaded dress showing the rest of the world how to do cleavage that oozes sex appeal but retains it's class.
January Jones was another standout, in Lanvin, a lot of fashion controversy was brewing on Twitter regarding her headband – but I liked it, and the whole ensemble was new and interesting as was Marion Cotillard in Dior, gorgeous colour, gorgeous dress with a subtely sexy twist for the red carpet. Jury's still out on Kate Hudson's whipped cream frenzy of a dress…(by Marchesa) I'm just not sure. It was certainly interesting and a hit amidst the other bloggers tweeting away yesterday.
Pink champagne a fashion colour of the year for Pantone was also the colour of the year at the Golden Globes with Emily Blunt (Dolce and Gabbana), Maggie Gyllenhaal (RM by Roland Mouret), Chloe Sevigny (Valentino) and Drew Barrymore (Versace) all working the colour various tones (for the record I decided the beaded caterpillars on Drew's dress were not good – I would have liked it exponentially more if it had just the one on the shoulder – but not a fan)
Other duds for me were Penelope Cruz (Giorgio Armani Privé), her dress was truly beautiful, not something I'm going to deny, but would have been a lot more appropriate on her Nine co-star Sofia Loren. Also poor Elisabeth Moss, maybe she just doesn't care, but man I want to dress her, whomever is doing it now suceeds on making her look dowdy on a really regular basis.
Anyhoo. Next time I do a red carpet live tweet off I'll let you know in advance!
