2009 Golden Globes Fashion Round-Up

OK, more “Nerdies” to hand out, this time for fashion.

Best Dressed (Female): Three-way tie for me between House‘s Olivia Wilde, lovely in a lavender gown that looked like cotton candy…o-wildeDrew Barrymore, whose dress looked as ethereal as a cloud (though the hair made her look a little old)…
Actress Drew Barrymore arrives at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Aand Mad Men‘s January Jones, who looked very Grace-Kelly-winning-an-Oscar-for-The-Country-Girl in her ice-blue, backless gown.

Best Dressed (Male): Tie between Simon Baker and Tom Cruise. Their tuxes were beautifully cut and everything was in its place. Cruise looked like he’d had a facial, his pores were so tight.


Appearance that Scared Me Most (Male): Sting. With the full brown beard and brown hair, the usually sexy rock star looked like he’d been living in the woods and wrestling with bears. I’d say, “Don’t stand so close to me,” ’cause he might try to gnaw off my left arm.


Appearance that Scared Me Most (Female): Renee Zellweger. I love Renee and she usually looks great in Carolina Herrera but I don’t know what to make of this. I’ve heard of backless dresses but not frontless ones. I can see her granny bra. r-zellweger

Best Dressed, Under 20 Years Old: Rumer Willis, who actually looked great in red hair and a burgundy gown. (While she was interviewed by Ryan Seacrest on E!, the channel ID’d her as “Rumor.”) Actress Rumor Willis arrives at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awa

Least Successful Attempt by an Over-20-Year-Old to Look Under 20: Cameron Diaz in this cutesy pink dress. She looks like she’s trying to be Dakota Fanning.

Most Confusing Animal Print: Maggie Gyllenhaal. I don’t know about you but I’ve never seen a blue leopard.

Most Eco-Friendly: Rachel Griffiths. She recycled a brown paper bag by wearing it as a dress.

Most Likely to Glow in the Dark: Amy Adams. Her skin is so luminous she seemed to radiate light.amy-adams

Most Likely to See Her Business Go Through the Roof: Lorraine Schwartz. It seemed like every other star was wearing her beautiful, unique jewelry—Beyonce, Christina Applegate, Elizabeth Banks. My faves were the pink earrings designed especially for Jennifer Morrison’s dress and Amy Adams’s green earrings, which were striking against her red hair.28cb01c808f08ab1_jennifer-morrison1

Most Likely to be a Donor for Beaver Tail Transplants: Debra Messing. She has gorgeous hair but this ponytail is a little too big for me. messing

  1. Oh PCN, you have impeccable taste. 10/10 from me for your selections and observations! And Simon Baker also wins my vote for total hottie.

  2. ShelleyP,

    Thank you! Obviously, you have great taste, too!

  3. Sting scared the S*** out of me!

  4. And what would you wear? What are you wearing right now? (kidding!) Thanks for the re-cap. I hardly ever watch the red carpet arrival, but since Joan and Melissa are gone, maybe I’ll be back..

  5. OMG…Drew looked like she had sex in the back of the limo and forgot to fix her hair. That s*** was crazy! We kept joking that maybe she was just getting in character for “Grey Gardens”! Ha!

    And Renee Zellwegger looked like freaking Lucille Ball in her final years…OOOLLLDDD!! Yikes…

  6. Nice pictures and comments. 😀 But I think Simon Baker looks soo much better than Tom Cruise. He’s so gorgeous!

    And I wonder why Trudie Styler allowed her husband to leave the house looking like this! Horrible! This color is way too much…

      I thought Simon Baker and Tom Cruise looked the best when it came to their grooming and the fit of their tuxes, but I think Simon is way sexier, too! You can’t buy his brand of hotness at the store.

  7. Oh, ok, the tuxes are perfect, that’s true. I’m just SO mad about Simon at the moment. 😉

  8. No, no, no, of course as in “wild about”! How could I be angry with him?
