Red Carpet Round up: Golden Globes 2012

So the 69th Golden Globe Awards seem to have passed without mishap, R. Gervais was relatively well behaved dispite his previous insistance that he wouldn't be. Madonna proved yet again she’s bereft of a sense of humour and as most of the speeches themselves were more or less bleeped out, let’s focus on the attire of those much better off and far more famous than most of us could dream to be.

Piper Perabo in Theyskens
The embodiment of one of those dolls that your Nan used to cover their toilet rolls and going for the ‘look at my new face it cost me a bundle’ pose. If you saw the back of this you’d swear it had been ripped. That said I still don’t know if I dislike it or not, you decide.

Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci.
OK we get it you’re ‘edgy’. The dress was nice enough but not anything to write home about. Rooney is one that seems to have noticed how well the ‘awkward I’m too shy to be a big star’ type personality has gone for Kristen Stewart. Personally, I’d be more impressed with her acting ability if she bounced around like Zooey Deschanel in New Girl when not in character. I'm not sure anyone who has done the kind of scenes she had to do for Dragon tattoo can be as introverted as she appears. Come on Hollywood give us someone actually worth talking about.

Zooey Deschanel in Prada.
Speaking of the above, while I love this girl I was less than impressed with her styling. whoever added that wig to her hair and gave her those strange looking fake sideburns has a lot to answer for, the tuxedo nails were an interesting touch though.

Charlize Theron in Dior: BEST DRESSED NOMINEE
Now here’s a star, blatantly suffering from some sort of throat infection but the husky voice just added to her appeal. She cranked it up a notch by wearing a full length gown with a cut out rather than a split and the bow was girly without being too cutsey. Topping off her statuesque frame with a 1920’s (honestly it’s gonna be big this year) hair do and diamond headband the girl gets a 10.

Dianna Agron in Giles
Well there is still that perfect face and she picked a great colour for her skin tone, but the dress is like the opposite of a Monet, great up close but from a distance doesn’t really do it for me.
Michelle Williams in Jason Wu: MOST BORING
I genuinely don't get this girls appeal, dull as you like, the kind of dress you'd give to a charity shop in a spring clean and yet she's celebrated as a massive fashionista, go figure...
Fredia Pinto in Prada: WORST DRESSED
Beautiful colour, beautiful girl but one that didn't to look in a mirror before she left, unless she was going for the 'most likely to be thought to be pregnant' look, more than a tad unflattering.
Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci : BEST DRESSED NOMINEE
To me this is a real edgy girl. The gorgeous plunging halter neck gown she chose, with dark green hues (a colour not seen much on this red carpet but that I predict will be around a lot more for the ‘other’ awards) and feather detail (so what if its so last year!) proves she can do old school glamour as well as anyone.

Emma Stone in Lanvin: BEST DRESSED
This girl has it all. Crazy eye make-up, a great dress (not seen an eagle belt on the RC for a while/ever), a cracking voice, fabulous attitude AND the attention of my husband as well as the honour of being my imaginary BFF.
Looking forward to the other dresses coming our way...

I totally agree with you about Rooney Mara... So she shaved her eyebrows off for a film?! Doesn't mean she has to constantly dress like a goth! xxx
