Red Carpet Recap: Golden Gl....yaaaawwnnn....

I can't help it. As much as I love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, I thought this was a pretty boring awards show. They DID have some funny lines - especially Amy's "...like a supermodel's vagina, we would like to welcome Leonardo DiCaprio...", but overall, the show, and the fashion, for that matter, were Snoozeville. In any case, here are some of my faves and not-so-faves.

The Good

I was all set to peg Kate Beckinsale as my favorite look of the night, until Diane Keaton walked out.


Glorious, silver-fox, beautifully coiffed, impeccably cut Diane Keaton. This was so amazing it was beyond amazing. Utter perfection.


Kate Beckinsale is a silver fox of another type. It's like she's molded out of steel.


Another Kate (Mara), another silvery hue. However, I'm going to go on record as saying I CANNOT with that woman in the background who is wearing sheer over short dress and Clara Bow hair WITH TARGET SANDALS.


Laura Dern is not conventionally pretty, but I thought her hair, in that strawberry blond tone, and that dress, on that slammin body, was pretty frigging fantastic.


Lupita Nyong'o, I  have one word for you: GLORIOUS.


When Tina Fey walked the red carpet in this, I loved it. I still do, but in a photo, I keep thinking the rose print looks like flamingos standing on one leg. Not that I wouldn't still love a flamingo dress, but it's kind of distracting me from the pretty that is Tina.


Amy Poehler made me think of a 60s sex kitten in this getup. Yes, it's oddly cut, but I still think it works on her, and I am SO GLAD she won for Parks & Rec. It's about damn time that show got some recognition. The creeper behind her looks like he has already had two drinks too many.


Helen Mirren's dress was the first on the red carpet that made me gasp. I LOVE that color on her. 


Olivia Wilde is the sexiest pregnant lady I ever did see.

The Not So Good


From a thumbnail, I thought Heidi Klum was Goldie Hawn. Heidi's gown is Marchesa, and her choker was flown in from 1991.


Lena Dunham...Lena, Lena, Lena....actually, in this photo the dress looks WAY better than it did when she was talking to Carson Daly on the red carpet. On the R.C., her boobs looked like they were being tortured incessantly (and not just because she was talking to Carson Daly). 

The REALLY Not So Good


Drew Barrymore is so adorable I almost forgive her for this dress, but the dyed to match prom shoes tipped it into the REALLY not so good category. Better luck next time.


You guys, Edie Falco scored ALL the leftover Christmas wrap at Target. NO FAIR.


Julia Roberts, you have more money than God, and can afford a stylist, so BUY A BETTER ONE. And also? You are no Sharon Stone - you cannot get away with stuffing a white button down underneath your Dolce & Gabbana, so DON'T TRY IT. Ridiculous.

Okay - who did I miss? Who were your faves and not-so-faves? Spill it, kids!!

Merci,
Shan

Shan,
Great post! I agree poor Drew and Edie were a mess. Julia Roberts, actually just got a new stylist. I guess it's the same one Sandra Bullock has. She has some stuff to answer for. Both however, looked gorgeous last week at some Palm Beach film thing. Not sure what happened this week!

My favorite comment was about the woman with the Clara Bow hair and Target sandals..Spot on! Lol.

Thanks for stopping by the blog and leaving a comment on my post! I just read a bunch of your posts and you are hilarious! Love your travel and family posts. What darling kids!

Will follow you. Looking forward to reading more!

Lupita and Diane were spectacular! The show was a little boring but it was the best Tina Fey has ever looked!

Olivia Wilde is due the day after me. I look like I swallowed a basketball and she looks like she had an extra burrito at lunch. Naturally, I hate her:/ Kidding...mostly;)
