Golden Globes 2013 Recap
01 . 14 . 13
There were a few themes of the 2013 Golden Globes: the flu, post-baby bodies, and odes to Angie’s right leg. The popular colors ranges from red to black and lots of blush. There really wasn’t anyone who stole the show but here are a few of my favorites.
Jennifer Lawrence won for Silver Linings Playbook while suffering from the flu. She gave a great speech but the top of her Dior Haute Couture dress was a little weird.
Claire Danes had a baby less than a month ago and has a flatter tummy than I will ever have in my entire life. Sigh. She also won for Homeland which means that now I really have to sign up for Showtime.
Love Marion Cottilard but I’m on the fence about her Dior dress. It wasn’t my favorite fashion show for spring 2013 and not my favorites for awards season. But she could probably wear a paper bag and still look good.
I am bummed I couldn’t find a photo of Jen and Ben. She looked great in Vivienne Westwood and he won for Argo so take that Oscars.
Naomi Watts looked chic in Zac Posen and was probably warm with those sleeves. It better warm up in LA before my trip next week.
I love Lena Dunham and Girls and was happy that she and the show won Gold Globes. But there was something about this dress that washed her out and she couldn’t walk in her shoes. She also read her speeches from a prepared paper which was disappointing. I hope she doesn’t do that again next time.
Taylor Swift wore a similar color Donna Karan gown. She also needs to work on her “I’m really happy that Adele won the award for best song and I’m not upset at all face”. I also want her to dye her dishwater colored hair a really striking blonde. And to stop dating boys full stop.
This Oscar de la Renta gown on Jessica Alba was one of the best over all looks of the night.
Amy Adams’ Marchesa dress was a pale ballet pink as she described it to the annoying Ryan Seacrest. I loved it but her hair was a little weird. I think it would have been pure perfection with Jessica Alba waves.
Megan Fox also recently had a baby. Biatch. Loved her in this simple Dolce and Gabbana lace gown.
I loved Amanda Seyfried’s Givenchy dress but just wish her hair hadn’t been covering it up. I also don’t know what was up with the weird gold tie clip thing at the top. I hope she wears bright color to the Oscars.
Oh Jennifer. She looks great in her Zuhair Murad but I’d like to see her in a different style next time.
Ignore the funny face that Isla Fisher is making in this pic and focus on her pretty Reem Acra dress. So lovely.
I’m on the fence about Kerry Washington’s Miu Miu dress. I usually LOVE Kerry’s style and Miu Miu but I’m not a fan of that short under long illusion look. But she’s another one who could wear a burlap sack and look amazing so I’ll let her slide on this one.
Helen Hunt just continues to age so gracefully and look amazing. Her Dolce & Gabbana dress was beautiful.
Emily Blunt is so adorable that I want her to be my friend. She looked like a golden goddess in her lace Michael Kors dress that it’s too bad she didn’t actually win a Golden Globe.
Michelle Dockerty seems to be getting thinner and thinner but still looked chic in her Alexandre Vauthier gold and white gown.
It didn’t photograph well here but Anne Hathaway’s two piece Chanel sparked on screen. It is also rumored that she is with child which accounts for the loose top. If she is, she’ll have a really great story of winning a Golden Globe for Les Miserables to tell her child someday.
Kristen Bell is actually confirmed to be pregnant and looked so angelic in her Jenny Packham dress.
There were mixed reviews for Sienna Miller’s Erdem two piece ensemble but she liked that it reminded her of something her character in The Girl would have worn. She also looks amazing after just having a baby. There must be something in the water in Hollywood.
I loved the color of Jessica Chastain’s mint colored Calvin Klein dress but the top was a bit too big for her. Not everyone loved her hair either but she won a Golden Globe for Zero Dark Thirty so I think that trumps what we all think.
As I mentioned, I don’t have Showtime but I do know actress Morena Beccarin is on Homeland. I don’t know the designer but I liked her dress. But I’m a sucker for any dress with sleeves.
Eva Longoria looked amazing in Pucci but she needed to put her leg back in it.
Same with Rosie Huntington-Whitely in Saint Laurent. Did they learn nothing from Angie’s right leg jokes?
This Theyskens’ Theory dress on Katherine McPhee looked better on screen and was very sexy.
No designer was mentioned for Zosia Mamet’s dress but it was worth a look. I loved the mix of materials.
Another new mom, Adele also looked amazing in Burberry in her signature black. Her song for Skyfall won and she couldn’t have given a better speech. It made me love her even more!
I loved Kate Hudson’s Alexander McQueen dress and she would have been a contender for best dressed if her hair had been up or didn’t have all those flyaways. Her hair stylist should be fired for letting her leave the house with them.
Helen Mirren but she just looks better and better and was stunning in Badgley Mischka. We should all look that amazing in our 70’s.
Co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler looked great in L’Wren Scott and Stella McCartney respectively and killed it on stage. They were cracking everyone up but there just needed to be more of them. Hope they bring them back next year.
Julianne Moore was a winner in Tom Ford and for Game Change. Now that’s a movie star.
From the top up, Rachel Weisz looked drop dead gorgeous but that illusion Louis Vuitton was a disaster on the bottom. But she has Daniel Craig on her arm to make up for it.
If anyone needs me on Monday, I’ll be at the movies seeing Silver Linings Playbook and Argo.
Oh, and if I made any grammatical or spelling errors, please keep in mind that this was written at midnight and I’ll fix them in the morning.
