Fashion Picks and Nit Picks of Golden Globe 2012

The men looked gorgeous in their tuxedos. Leonardo looks good to me no matter what.
Leonardo DiCaprio in Giorgio Armani
For the ladies there were too many over-designed gowns. More is not better; it's just more. So many were sprouting out of feathers, flourishes and tiers of manipulated fabric.

Of the 90 or so images I looked at, these were my female favorites:
Jessica Alba in Gucci
Penelope Ann Miller in Pamela Roland
Sarah Hyland in Vintage Dolce Gabbana
Shailene Woodley in Marchesa
Not quite decided about these but they did have a unique appeal to me.
Selma Hayek in Gucci
Zooey Deschanel in Prada

Simple bodice with a fascinating bottom of painterly quality. (Perhaps feathers?)
Sophia Vergara in Vera Wang
Bird, reptile, fish or Cirque costume? All she needs is an appropriate snake headdress.
Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci Premiere
A category of her own. Picture Tilda without the face and the jacket.
Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann
The worst:
This looks like a chenille bedspread. Poor thing. She looks overwhelmed.
Ariel Winter in Dolce & Gabbana
We're off to see the Wizard. This gown's beautiful silhouette deserved better color treatment. She looks like the Jolly Green Giant.
Laura Dern in Andrew Gn
I have no words for this laser-cut greeting card parading as a dress.
Dianna Agron in Giles
My Mother's Baby-Blue Sequined Portieres (left side.) The beadwork is gorgeous but the zipper is so noticeable and for some reason it looks as if she didn't have time to finish getting dressed. She needs a clutch and something else...perhaps a touch-up for her roots?
Jodie Foster in Giorgio Armani

This has been way too much fun. 


  1. One of the terms I hate most in the overblown world of fashion is "vintage". It seems that anything from last season is now re-christened as vintage.

  2. I felt the same way about the purple chenille bedspread dress. I thought " Well..at least she will be warm." LOL!

  3. I can see Tilda Swinton as a Syb!!!! She is androgynous and always unexpected. Sophia Vegara hands down winner. What a body!!

  4. Such fun, Teri. Love your comments. Thanks.

  5. What? No Angelina? Wearing that satin Versace?
    It was the hit of the evening!

  6. Love their dresses, i imagine my self wearing those gorgeous gowns. LOL! Nice post i enjoy staring at those pictures.
