Top 5: Golden Globes

by Holly on January 18, 2010

in top 5

Because I don’t have to work today, it’s my blog, and I heart awards show fashion.

#1: Maggie Gyllenhaal (in Roland Mouret)

Love the dress, love the hair, love her.  It also doesn’t hurt she is my husband’s sister.

#2: Jayma Mays

Not only is she fab on Glee, but I LOVE this whimsical, graphic and fun dress.  I am all for ladies who have fun with fashion.

#3: Diane Kruger (in Christian Lacroix Haute Couture)

Let’s get past the arm candy (hello Pacey!) to her fearless, fashion-forward and always on the cutting edge look.  I die.

#4: Penelope Cruz (in Armani Prive)

This woman can do no wrong.

#5: January Jones (in Lanvin)

If Audrey Hepburn was still alive today and in her mid-20’s, this is what she would wear.  It is retro, vintage and gorge.

Worst of the Night: Vanessa Minnillo

Apparently, she didn’t get the memo the Golden Globes isn’t a beauty pageant or senior prom or a showroom for gaudy draperies. I am not even going to get into her Texas-sized hair and the fact she is radiating orange.

Did you watch the Golden Globes?  Who was your fashion favorite?  Least favorite?

And for the record, I love Ricky Gervais.

So fun!! I love looking at what everyone is wearing. I actually missed the globes this year. Totally forgot. But I just love seeing all the cool fashions. I think Penelope Cruz’s dress is my fav. Looks so fabulous on her. Have a great Monday!!

Erica January 18, 2010 at 12:47 pm

Loveeeeeee Maggie’s dress! I didn’t watch but I am now trying to catch up on the dresses!

Evan Thomas January 18, 2010 at 12:51 pm

I watched it but I don’t think I have good opinion in this department :-D
Ricky was funny–not the best but solidly good(and with all the comedian drama on NBC I think that’s a good thing)

Maya January 18, 2010 at 12:52 pm

Love Maggie’s dress! And you are so right, Penelope Cruz can do NO wrong!

Matt January 18, 2010 at 1:03 pm

I didn’t watch!

katie January 18, 2010 at 1:03 pm

oh dang! penelope cruz looks SO it!

Estela @ Weekly Bite January 18, 2010 at 1:04 pm

I totally agree with your choices!!

Vanessa Manillo did not look good.

Penelope Cruz was my favorite!

Low January 18, 2010 at 1:12 pm

Love love love awards shows! I love all your picks too!

Whit January 18, 2010 at 1:16 pm

OH PACEY! I die. Did you catch the pic on GoFugYourself where he was standing in the rain holding the umbrella? GO HERE:

So dreamy.

Whit January 18, 2010 at 1:17 pm

I think my comment got sent to spam. boooo. go see.

Cindy January 18, 2010 at 1:28 pm

I suppose I am retarded when it comes to mainstreem TV and fashion.

sorry. I think they are all gorgeous and unless there was a category for girl who lives in cargo pants and an apron with cheerio’s in my pockets next to my camera and a hotwheel or two…

I probably wouldn’t get it.

Nice though that your future SIL was there!
that made me laugh.

If there was a beauty category for not well fitted clothes and yoga pants… I might watch.

I DO pay for DVR. perhaps I should use it.
my hubs owns the TV in our house. it’s why I KNIT
luv ya
have some cathcing up to do.

Lexi January 18, 2010 at 1:37 pm

I loved Kate Hudson’s dress, and Sandra Bullock’s.

K January 18, 2010 at 1:38 pm

My favorites are on my blog but I will say that Penelope Cruz looked fantastic! Ricky Gervais = LOVE!!!

Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats January 18, 2010 at 1:45 pm

Ooo, thanks for this!! I didn’t get to catch the red carpet last night and I always like to see what those gorgey dresses look like. :) Enjoy the rest of your day off!

Mama Pea January 18, 2010 at 1:48 pm

Oh I missed Vanessa’s debacle. Maybe Nick Lachey SHOULDN’T stay out of it. I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Lauren @ Eater Not a Runner January 18, 2010 at 1:49 pm

Love Penelope Cruz’s dress…..amazing

Gelareh @ Orange Truffle January 18, 2010 at 2:38 pm

I didn’t get to watch the golden globes… but from your reivew I love Penelope Cruz’s dress…

*Andrea* January 18, 2010 at 2:41 pm

haha i agree with all your choices! vanessa manillo went down the drain in terms of fashion and celeb status ;) i loved jennifer anniston’s look too and drew barrymore (though i love them both as ppl so that may sway my judgment).

happy mlk day!

Erin January 18, 2010 at 2:43 pm

Making muffins with my kid beats anything the Globes could offer me…didn’t watch it…

janetha ann benson January 18, 2010 at 2:43 pm

haha i didnt watch them but thanks for the witty commentary. love you!

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is January 18, 2010 at 2:45 pm

I LOVE Diana Kruger. Love her dress, too. Love her man more.

Faith January 18, 2010 at 3:01 pm

I didn’t watch the Golden Globes, but I definitely enjoyed your commentary! (Wouldn’t it be so much fun to be one of those fashion commentators on tv and be able to call yourself the fashion police, lol!) LOVE Penelope’s dress!!

Shelley January 18, 2010 at 3:09 pm

i liked this post :) i missed the golden globes but i agree with allyour commentary!

The Paris Food Blague January 18, 2010 at 3:18 pm

ah penelope cruz. despite the fact that i HATE almost every movie she’s in, i kinda love her.

ok…her almodovar movies are pretty great. but the others were real stinkers.

and with january jones it is the opposite. love mad men, but have reached the conclusion that the girl can’t act.

Susan January 18, 2010 at 3:21 pm

I had it on in the background, but I’m awful for having the TV on and not paying attention to it. If I could give a best accessory award – it would be Pacey. I love him, even through the awkward beard phase.

Jenny January 18, 2010 at 3:25 pm

I agree with all of the above! And I also think Leah Michelle from Glee looked amazing in her Oscar de la Renta, it was fab :)

Ricky Gervais was AMAZINGGG!

Ally (Sweet & Savory) January 18, 2010 at 3:37 pm

I watched them off and on last night…really love Sandra Bullock’s dress!

Julie @savvyeats January 18, 2010 at 3:47 pm

I LOVED Ricky Gervais in last night’s show… I think my favorite line of his was “Let’s get on with it, before NBC decides to replace me with Jay Leno”

I working on putting together a blogger meet-up in Madison… interested?

Erin January 18, 2010 at 4:35 pm

I live tweeted the Globes so I didn’t blog about it…yet. I’m inspired. My fave dress was Anna Paquin’s gold, short sleeved column gown. I thought it was DIVINE.

jenna January 18, 2010 at 4:46 pm

i watched only a lil bit!

Krissy January 18, 2010 at 4:47 pm

OMG I totally LOVED Diane Krugers dress – and I totally agree with you about Vanessa Minnillo – what the hell was she thinking?????

elise January 18, 2010 at 4:58 pm

i agree with everything you said…wtf is going on with vanessa minillo’s orange skin? there’s having a healthy glow, and then theres oompa loompa.

ps jake is mine so back up off!

Molly January 18, 2010 at 5:09 pm

I hope you had a GREAT day off! Perfect way to start off the week :) I can’t wait to catch the globes later this week- yay for streaming to foreign countries!!!

Adrien January 18, 2010 at 5:45 pm

It’s funny, because your husband just happens to be the father of my children..

Gotta love a Monday off! haha

Susan January 18, 2010 at 5:48 pm

I am totes with you on Maggie – she is fab! My fave of the night was Toni Collette though – so pretty. Least favorite had to be Nicole Kidman – I was expecting so much more from her!

I’m making a mental note now to check out Fashion Police on E tonight. I usually enjoy that more than the actual red carpet ha!

Gracie @ Girl Meets Health January 18, 2010 at 7:00 pm

January Jones is hands down my favorite. Emily Blunt came in 2nd.

All of the red carpet interviewers looked hideous…they always do. They’re dresses are always prom dresses gone terribly wrong…

And I can’t say I was a fan of Kate Hudson. She looked like a wedding cake….gone wrong as well!

Lynn @ The Actors Diet January 18, 2010 at 7:27 pm

i missed the red carpet but i did notice that sally hawkins from “happy go lucky” looked like she was wearing a tshirt with ribbon.

Kate January 18, 2010 at 7:36 pm

does anyone else think that january jones looks like claire danes?

Chelsea @ (Chelsea's Chew and Run Fun) January 18, 2010 at 8:19 pm

Penelope is a babe, undoubtedly!

I agree entirely with your points about the worst dressed.

I think Drew Barrymore took the cake though. She look like a snow-angel pixie of sorts. Also, her performance in “Grey Gardens” took the cake as well, hence why she totally deserved the award.

Angharad (Eating for England) January 18, 2010 at 9:55 pm

I missed it! Had no idea it was on! God damn!
Faves: penelope and january (LOVE).

Bekah January 19, 2010 at 9:12 pm

i didn’t watch the golden globes.. but i like your picks! :)

Sara @ ActiveGal January 28, 2010 at 9:06 pm

I watched the Golden Globes! I thought Sandra Bullock looked amazing too!
