those globes

Filed under: absolutely fabulous, perfect strangers — notsojenny @ 9:27 am

i’m not a huge awards show viewer but i do love the fashion of it all!

and this year’s Golden Globes did not disappoint!  there were some frighteningly atrocious offenders of fashion and eyesight alike but there were once again some stunning choices.  i’m always amazed that people with such incredible bodies and unbelievable access to hair/makeup/dressing expertise can walk out to such a public venue looking so bad.  but here were the people that i personally felt hit a home run with their look.  they not only had the whole look pulled together but they picked a lovely dress that looked AMAZING on them to boot!

notes: i think courtney cox had the best all together & flattering look; i LOVED krakowski’s dress, it was perfection!; miss cruz was pretty orange; i hated anna paquin’s shoes, but it’s gorgeous when they’re not showing

and you’ll notice there were no men on here.  because i’m sorry, they all look like they’re wearing black suits to me.  i will say though, what was up with the black knit beanie/tux combo??

okay, and while i’m not going to call out every hideous or unflattering ensemble that walked the red carpet (because let’s face it, they know who they are by now) i did notice the blush/nude/peach/lt. pink trend.  and i was not a fan.  i really like the colors of the dresses, but not when they’re the same color as people’s skin… or the people are even paler than the dress.  it looks bad, just bad.  not sure what i’m talking about?



~ today i learned… christopher reeve’s dad, george reeve, was THE original superman in the series ~



  1. The guy with the beany has Hidgkins lymphoma and is going through treatment. I doubt he would have worn it if he still had his hair.

  2. I don’t get the pale dress look. I’m extremely pale and I would never choose a pastel color, it’s just wrong

  3. Oooh, I love Anna Paquin’s look but Drew Barrymore looks practically nude in that dress!

  4. Your newly acquired knowledge is in fact false. Blame this on a sister who loves Superman and a husband who always corrects but it’s George Reeves and Christopher Reeve. A coincidence nothing less.
