Golden Globes 2012 - Red Carpet

This year the red carpet was impressive with the colors of the night being blush and navy. Most of the stars wore gowns that suited them perfectly and this is one of the first times I’ve had trouble narrowing down my favorites.

Here are the best and worst of the night (according to me):

Best Dressed:

Charlize Theron in Dior Couture

This was by far my favorite gown of the night. From the blush color that suits her skin tone perfectly to the fit and style. She was stunning!

Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen

It's no secret that Reese is one of my favorite celebs. Her style is always on point and she looks beautiful as the lady in red.

Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli

Kate is always so classy and absolutely gorgeous. My favorite part of this gown is the beautiful chiffon pleat detail at the bottom. Her jewelry and hair also fit the look perfectly.

Zooey Deschanel in Prada

I wouldn’t have liked this dress on anyone else but Zooey. The black and green combo had an almost mod feel to it, which goes so well with Zooey’s overall style. I also had to include a shot of her fantastic Tuxedo nails that she posted on Instagram.



Nicole Richie in Julien Macdonald

Nicole has come a long way with her style and the dress she wore to the awards proves that. The dress shows off her arms and back beautifully and the beading really makes it a standout.

Heidi Klum in Calvin Klein



I couldn’t post this without mentioning Heidi Klum’s turquoise necklace. That’s what I call a statement piece. It made her entire look!

Worst Dressed:

Lea Michele in Marchesa

This looks a figure skating costume gone bad.

Amanda Peet in Marc Jacobs

This dress might make for some cute shabby chic curtains

Piper Perabo in Theyskens’ Theory

This is all wrong from the color to the fact that it's see through

To end on a positive note, I had to include these cuties on the carpet!

Love, love, love Reese's dress!!! I think Claire Danes' dress was a little off-beat, but beautiful.

Piper Perabo is a great actor...but that dress is atrocious. See through and mesh (at least that's how it looked on tv) in the front middle from neckline to waist.

I agree....and I seriously LOVE heidi klum's necklace!!!

Meghan said...

I absolutely loved Charlize Theron, Julie Bowen, and Claire Danes. I absolutely loathed Piper Perabo's dress - WAY too much going on!

You're spot on!! Was a great fashion spread overall! :)

I actually loved Angelina Jolie's dress. The splash of red went so well with her red lipstick and it was nice to see her wear a bright color. I liked Reese's dress, when she walked out on stage I was impressed. :-)

I didn't see Heidi Klum until looking through pictures this morning and I really liked it. I either hate or love what she wears, mostly hate but not this time.

I think there were too many nude colored dresses and they washed out most of the women wearing them. It's a hard color to pull off. Also, I can't believe how many of the women can't seem to choose dresses that flatter their figures.

I thought Charlize looked AMAZING! Her dress, hair, headband and makeup were so feminine and flawless I loved it! Reese also looked stunning. Zoeys nails were super cute, but I could not stand her dress or her hair.... her hair what the heck was going on with that! xo

I agree with everything you said, except Zooey. I'm not a huge fan of her dress, but I don't think I typically like what she wears anyway. Reese basically always looks good. I also loved Sofia Vergara's dress. She's another one that I think pretty much always looks good!

I thought the same thing about Lea Michelle's dress hahahah

Jessica Renee said...

I totally agree with you on this list! Charlize looked AMAZING -- as usual! Another look I really loved was Kate Winslet's. It was simple but I thought she was just so pretty in it!

Lindsey said...

i agree 100%!!!

Leslie said...

Heidi Klum could wear a burlap SACK and look beautiful! It's not fair! ;) That necklace she had on was fabulous though!

Gwen said...

I love Zooey Deschanel and you're right...no one else could have pulled it off. And how cute is that pup! Love it!!!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

That dog stole my heart! TOO cute!!

I loved Jessica Alba's dress the most. It was incredible! Nicole Kidman's dress was interesting - not sure if I loved or hated it but it was made for her. Fit her body perfectly!

Miss Lindsay said...

I sadly didn't get to watch... love your recap. I agree Reese look amazing in red. I love Zooey's nails!! (And the puppyyyyyy!)

Alyson said...

Reese and Heidi totally rocked it. Awesome recap!
