Golden Globes 2014

As of last night the 2014 awards season has started with the Golden Globe Awards. And what would an awards show be without the TAW fashion recap the following morning? (Answer: It would be the same. No one in the fashion industry cares what I think.) 

Here are my favorite and not-so-favorite looks from the red carpet.

All pictures taken from this post, unless otherwise noted.

Best Dressed

Zooey Deschanel

Okay, this didn't photograph great. But it was beautiful on TV. Ant called her look "kitschy..." Not quite sure he knows the definition of the word. Quirky, yes, kitschy, not so much.

I'm not usually a big fan of Julianna's fashions, but I thought this was beautiful! It fit perfectly and was subtle, yet striking at the same time.

Loved this Mad Men era-esque dress! A turtle neck with a stiff fabric sounds like a recipe for disaster, but the dress was tailored beautifully and just plain worked.

This is how you wear white to an awards show! Take note, Jennifer Lawrence (see below).

Olivia Wilde

Of the three pregnant ladies on the red carpet (Olivia, Drew Barrymore and Kerry Washington) I thought Olivia looked the best. Her dress was beautiful and hugged her bump perfectly. Though to be fair to the other two ladies, Olivia seemed to have the smallest bump, and it's definitely easier to look cute with 6 month baby bump than an 8 month bump.

Emma definitely rocked the funkiest look on the red carpet, and it totally paid off! It was lovely from the front, but absolutely jaw dropping from the back. A risk that totally paid off.

Lupita Nyong'o

FLAWLESS. If this dress isn't at the top of everyone's best dressed list than, I dunno, they're just plain wrong. Best dressed by a mile! (Side note, did you guys catch Amy Adams wearing a red cape when she first arrived? She quickly took it off, because she saw how great Lupita looked no doubt!)

Honorable Mention goes to... Stephanie Beatriz! My fellow Stephens College alum looked amazing and I was so happy her show, Brooklyn 9-9, won! I couldn't find a great picture of her, but here's a link to her in the E! Glam Cam 360.

Worst Dressed

Tina Fey

I really hated this dress, but I think I hated Tina's hair more. That was my go-to style in 3rd grade. Not the best choice for a red carpet event. Tina redeemed herself during the show and I liked both looks she wore on stage. I thought her hosting partner, Amy Poehler, looked great all night.

Ariel Winter

Okay, it's so mean to criticize the fashion choices of a 15 year old. I know that. However, this dress would look matronly on someone twice her age, so I can't help myself. Plus, it was so dated and cheap looking.  I think she ordered it from the 2002 JC Penney catalog. Her makeup looked lovely though!

Jennifer Lawrence

Entertainment Weekly likened this dress to Ariel's rope and sail dress from The Little Mermaid. Spot on! This dress did absolutely nothing for J-Law. It made her look much bigger than she really is and the blinding shade of white only belongs on a wedding dress.

What were your best and worst dressed of the Golden Globes?

  1. I agree with a lot of your choices, especially Olivia Wilde (so gorgeous -- I think she might have been my favorite of the night!) and Tina Fey (that dress is hideous). I loved Amy Poehler too; the dress was kind of simple, but she looked amazing.
