Red on the carpet at the Globes

From gowns to shoes to accessories, Red was everywhere on the carpet at the 2011 Golden Globes. I am in awe of these beautiful stars. How do they pull off such a challenging colour to wear?

Red wasn't the only primary colour on the scene, the stars were also shining in emerald, peach and navy. Unfortunately there were also some celebs who tried too hard. In these cases (see bottom), the extra stitching, netting and embellishments were just too much.


Natalie, you won it all. You are absolutely glowing in this Viktor & Rolf satin floor length gown. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the red rose embellishment and red hot heels. What a perfect dress to show off your baby bump! (I probably love this the most because it reminds me of when I was pregnant at Neil and Jen's wedding, only 5 days before Madelyn was born...such happy memories).


Every blog is buzzing about who was the lady in red. I have to hand it to January, I can't get enough of you in this risky Versace. Only January can pull that off. I love the plunging neckline, cutouts, dramatic lips and silky hair. Stunning. Sofia Vergara and Christina Hendricks, you are my runners up in Vera Wang and Romona Keveza. Way to flaunt your stuff!

Emma Stone stepped up her image while Claire Danes stole my heart, both in sophisticated Calvin Klein. Claire, your hair also looked amazing btw.

Amy Adams looked stunning in this teal Marchesa gown and romantic up-do. And Tina Fey, HUGE improvement from the 2010 Globes.

My favorite on-screen mom, Julie Bowen, looked amazing and toned in Maz Azria Atelier. Love the silhouette.

Anne Hathaway and Leighton Meester were fashion forward in Giorgio Armani Privé and Burberry Prorsum. These gowns grew on me as the night went on. My only complaint for Anne was that her back sheer didn't seem like the exact right tint of nude. Anyone agree?

Elizabeth Moss (Donna Karan), Mila Kunis (Vera Wang) and Catherine Zeta Jones (Monique Lhuillier) were my favorites in green. Although I'm not crazy about the mid-section on Moss's gown, I really like how she's up'd her glam over the years. I do realize that Angie also wore Emerald but I have her listed below.

Angie, Angie, Angie, why would you ruin this great Versace by forgetting to get your hair done for the Globes? It instantly reminded me of Victoria Newman. If you didn't want to put it up that's fine, but at least pin up the side or do something with your bang area. Shesh. And Sandra, I know you've had a hard year, but why let it show with such messy hair. You could have looked so great in your Jenny Packham. Were you just trying to lay low in case you ran into ScarJo on the carpet?

Scarlet, you could have done better than this Elie Saab dress. You are recently single, you should be strutting your stuff. Nicole, you were way too boring in this cream Prada. You and Keith just don't match. And what's with the black/blue ring? On the other hand, Dianna Agron looked very pretty in this J. Mendel, but I'm still not crazy about beige for the Globes.

Michelle Williams, sorry but this Valentino does not do it for you. I know it's love it or hate it, so I hate it. It has the wrong shape and the print is hideous. You're a pretty girl, you can do better.

And Christina Aguilera and J-Low, both in Zuhair Murad, what were you thinking? Christina, everything but your hair is wrong, and JLo, who let you out of the house with silver eyeshadow and this chinatown shall? Yuck.

Lastly, Jayma Mays, can you please EAT SOMETHING? You are scray skinny in your Alberta Ferretti, it's falling off of you! And please, just because Red is the IT colour, don't wear it on your lips if it doesn't look good on you. What happened since last year? You were so pretty in your Badgley Mischka Couture. Gain 10 lbs and get back to last years style.
