Best & Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes

Lights, camera, awards season! The first official weekend of the new year brought along the Golden Globe awards; and while the weather is currently freezing in so many corners of the world, Los Angeles was its sunny self as Hollywood’s brightest stars came out to celebrate the best in TV and movies. Here are the night’s best and worst dressed:

Sophie Turner sizzles in Louis Vuitton! The Game of Thrones actress expertly combines shoulder pads, cutouts, and sheer in one stunning gown that show that she’s all grown up. Turner completes the look with Tiffany & Co. jewels and flat straight hair.

Heidi Klum‘s latest fashion crime comes in the form of this J. Mendel zig-zag black and white dress. The top part seems to be holding on to dear life, trying to avoid a wardrobe malfunction, while the overall surplus of sequins is nothing short of tacky!

Drew Barrymore gets it right in this whimsical Monique Lhuillier gown: the fit is flawless and the sparkly winged shoulders are a perfect compliment to the actress’ character.

Sarah Jessica Parker could be easily mistaken for a runaway bride in this Vera Wang collection mess. SJP- who usually gets it right- dons an unflattering full-on white satin gown that looks like it needs to be ironed for DAYS. Adding insult to injury is her (completely) out of place Princess Leia hair.

Evan Rachel Wood gives us a lesson on how to wear a  suit to a high profile red carpet and end up on the best dressed list. The actress nails it in a perfectly tailored Altuzarra tux with an understated pussy bow double breasted white chemise.

Nicole Kidman looks all kinds of wrong in this fully embellished Alexander McQueen gown. I can’t seem to decide what’s worse: the multi-layered ruffled hem or the (extremely) outdated arm warmers!

Last night’s Best Actress winner was breathtaking in Valentino Haute Couture. La La Land‘s Emma Stone was the epitome of glamour in a beautiful star inspired gown and Tiffany & Co. diamonds.

Chrissy Teigen misses the mark in this disappointing fishtail gown by Marchesa. The model could have done so much better than this greige meets bronze gown.

Amy Adams stuns in a fully sequined strapless Tom Ford column dress. The Arrival actress kept her hair simple and accessorized with Cartier diamonds for her walk down the red carpet.

Although Kerry Washington‘s makeup and hair were on point for the Golden Globes, her dress was NOT.  With the excessive gunmetal embroidery and awkward belt placement, this Dolce & Gabbana gold lace tea length dress has too much going on, not to mention those visible black spanks which are just tasteless.

Reese Witherspoon shines in a custom-made Atelier Versace sweetheart neckline lemon dress with a high slit and Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

Zoe Saldana hits all the wrong notes in a Valentine inspired Gucci gown. Too much fabric and a huge in-your-face lavender bow turned this look into an absolute disaster.

Kristen Bell  is chic and polished in a dangerously plunging Jenny Packham black dress. From the shiny all-over sequins to her tousled waves and not forgetting those drop dead gorgeous Harry Winston diamonds, Bell was undoubtedly the Globe’s Belle of the ball!

Blake Lively makes her post-baby return to Hollywood in an unflattering custom velvet Atelier Versace gown. The look could have been a winning one if it weren’t for the unnecessary gold sequined neckline and weird pockets? Even Blake’s enviable emerald Lorraine Schwartz cuffs could not save this look!

Red Carpet | Best Dressed at the 2014 SAG Awards

The second stop for awards season happened to be the Screen Actors’ Guild awards. The lavish yet relaxed awards show took place on Saturday in Los Angeles and just like every red carpet, there was mix of gorgeous and hideous, but more on the hideous later ;)

Here are my favorite gowns from the evening!

Jennifer Lawrence

Ok so this look is not my favorite for J Law, but it is a huge improvement from last week’s Dior disaster. Also, because of all the sequins, this dress does not photograph well, but you would like it if you saw it live on TV. In any case, this Dior black strapless gown wins Jennifer some much needed points in the awards season fashion department. She finishes off the look with Jennifer Mayer dangling earrings. Now if only her hair would grow back!

Anna Gunn

I love everything about this look! The midnight blue Monique Lhuillier gown goes perfectly with Anna’s blond hair and the shimmer is just right. The Breaking Bad actress also pays homage to the show with a custom made “Breaking Bad” clutch that made fans of the series go wild!

Lupita Nyong’o

The Kenyan beauty nails it again and looks gorgeous on the red carpet. Following her “fashion moment” at the Globes last week, the 12 Years a Slave actress turns heads in this Gucci turquoise dress. The color is just perfect for her complexion and I’m just obsessed with the neckline!

Emilia Clarke

Just when you think Calvin Klein lost his A game in designing red carpet gowns (I’m looking at you Reese Witherspoon), the designer dresses Emilia Clarke in a custom sequin one shoulder gown that is drop dead gorgeous! From the color to the hair to the flawless and understated makeup, I I love everything about Emilia’s look!

Sofia Vergara

No surprise here! The bombshell does it again in a strapless Donna Karan gown and a breath-taking Amrapali diamond and emerald statement necklace. Enough said.

Amy Adams

Undoubtedly my favorite from this year’s SAGs, Amy Adams is stunning in this Antonio Berardi dress featuring one shoulder cutout detailing. I love the bejeweled waistline and the rest of her Cartier arm candy. Simply beautiful!
