Golden Globe Awards Wrap-Up

The 2010 Golden Globe Awards were a wet mess, but the stars managed to shine through cloudy skies and from underneath behemoth umbrellas. Among the best dressed were Ginnifer Goodwin in an electric blue Vionnet dress that made the young actress stand out from the rest of the crowd. Former Friends star Courtney Cox looked stunning in a simple black Victoria Beckham gown that featured a beaded waistline. Penelope Cruz is one of my all-time favorite red carpet beauties. Here she is in an Armani Privé gown. The mermaid silhouette suits her curvy body to a tee. She looks radiant. Olivia Wilde channeled Angelina Jolie in a stunning Gucci gown, but my favorite of the night was True Blood star Anna Paquin. Her glittery gold Stella McCartney dress fit her perfectly. It was age-appropriate and red-carpet worthy. Her hair was done in a way that kept her look youthful yet elegant, and that slit up the center of the dress ended just short of where it ought not to ever go. In short, Anna was "golden" at the Golden Globes.

Where there is good, however, there will always be bad. Sunday's award ceremony saw quite its share of horrid looks. While some frocks were uglier than the ones I've chosen, I've picked these three to illustrate how good intentions can go horribly wrong. Tina Fey's Zac Posen 50's-inspired dress has such a busy pattern that it swallows the comedian whole. An all-black version of the same design would've worked. The shoes were a mind-boggling choice. What's with the side bows? Next we have Mad Men star Christina Hendricks in a design from Project Runway winner Christian Siriano's spring 2010 collection. The dress itself is fine, but it's ill-fitting and the champagne shade washes the beautiful actress out. Her hair and make up were flawless, but from the neck down she's a mess. Anna Kendrick, a beautiful young woman, looked dated in her Marchesa gown. I would've preferred a less frothy look. Drop the ruffles or keep the ruffles but lose the glitter. All together, it's a bit much for her.

What I did love about Kendrick's outfit was her choice of Judith Leiber's Streamline Clutch. The art-deco design is the perfect red-carpet bag. Olivia Wilde carried the black version of the aptly-named design as well. This satin box clutch features large Austrian crystal accents on the top and sides and is priced at a whopping $2595. What can I say? Red carpet fashions will cost you a pretty fat penny, ladies.
