The Golden Globes: Belle's Best Dressed List

Jan 18, 2010

Finally, we’ve come to the end of our Golden Globes coverage and there is nary a faux pas in sight.  The following are my favorite evening looks from this year’s Golden Globes Red Carpet.  

When you are pear-shaped, it’s important to find a dress that emphasizes your assets and minimizes your flaws.  Kate Hudson’s white Marchesa gown uses architectural details to add volume to her minimal bust and take the focus off of her hips.  Sadly, the look of her elegant train was ruined by a sopping wet red carpet.

After black, silver was the most popular color of the night.  However, most of the silver gowns were more tarnished than an old serving spoon.  But Dianna Agron’s pewter Badgley Mischka dress was just sublime.

I love the light ethereal quality of the fly-away gown.  Too often this style is done in a boho chic fashion that misses the mark, but this gown is a bulls-eye.  If she’s not careful, Dianna could become Hollywood’s next breakout style star.

With her perfect pixie cut, Ginnifer Goodwin looks cheeky and chic in her Vionnet cocktail dress.  Sadly, the flash from the camera makes the royal purple color of the dress look cobalt blue.  Either way, this dress is perfectly proportioned for Ginnifer’s petite frame.

So, who is Belle’s Best Dressed?  Who possesses the gown that twenty designers will be knocking off tomorrow?

Jane Krakowski’s purple gown combines several of this year’s biggest trends: the one shoulder, the sweetheart neckline, the gathered waist and sheer pleating.  Frankly, judging by the description the down should be overwhelming, but leave it to J. Mendel to turn all of those elements into a perfectly elegant evening gown.  

There were plenty of gorgeous gowns on this year’s Golden Globes carpet.  So, who was your favorite of of the evening?

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
