BEST DRESSED: GOLDEN GLOBES 2016

I have to say that overall, I really enjoyed this red carpet. While the interviews always seem a bit awkward and rushed, the fashion is what does it for me.

I was quite pleased by the amount of color on the carpet this year. While I had some issues with the shape and silhouette of several gowns (ahem America Ferrera,) I was really pleased with the pops of red, green and yellow. Oh and did you all see Kate Hudson in pale pink?! Damn girl!!

The red carpet first timers always give me something to look forward to and man did they bring it! Brie Larson looked gorgeous in her custom Calvin Klein number and Alicia Vikander went fashion-forward in Louis Vuitton. Though my fiance thought it looked like an apron (that was actually the first thing he said when he saw it; “Is she wearing an apron?!”) Alicia can totally make an apron fashionable!

There was also quite a lot of shimmer and sparkle on the carpet — Uzo Aduba, Olivia Wilde, Kate Bosworth, Melissa McCarthy  — and I’m not always a fan of the sequins, but some of these gowns actually made me take a second look (but I still didn’t put many in my best dressed list.)

One of the biggest disappointments of the night? Channing Tatum’s hair! Not a fan, but I’m just going to hope it looks like that for an upcoming movie role or something…

globes brie
Brie Larson in Calvin Klein. I’m not always a huge fan of sparkles, but I absolutely adore Brie and she looked amazing in this dress. Look as those abs!! Her skin looked amazing and I loved the slicked back hair too. A+ in my book!
globes jennifer l
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior. I assumed she’d be in Dior, but I didn’t assume that I would love her dress as much as I did. I loved how the gown was layered and the color was killer and quite similar to the color she wore to the 2011 Oscars. But hey, when you know what works for you, go for it!
globes kate h
Kate Hudson in Michael Kors. One word, LOVE! She is always willing to take risks and when you have a body like she does why not show it off, right? I literally loved everything. The color, the neck piece. Everything!!
globes julianne
Julianne Moore in Tom Ford. This woman has been ruling the red carpet for quite some time and once again she killed it. I loved the cut out at the neckline and the color on her pale skin. I just hope I look half this good when I’m 55!
globes sophia
Sophia Bush in Narciso Rodriguez. I’ve loved Sophia since she played Brooke Davis on One Tree Hill and I’m still watching her in a completely different role as Erin Lindsay on Chicago PD. This girl is so beautiful inside and out and she looked like a classic beauty tonight. Simply stunning!
globes rosie
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Versace Atelier. God she looked gorgeous, but all models do…all the time. Everything from her hair to her skin to her dress are golden perfection! This is the type of gown I would love to wear because it’s fitting for the occasion, but also seems comfortable.
globes alicia
Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton. This girl has some style, but she’s also super pretty so I’m sure she could look good in anything, which includes this apron-inspired dress. I’m don’t think I could make this look nearly as good as she does. Alicia looked oh so beautiful and fresh-faced.
golden jaime
Jaimie Alexander in Genny. This dress looked way better on TV than it does in this picture. I feel like the angle of this photo makes the neckline look a little funky, but the dress looked absolutely gorgeous when I saw it live on E!. I loved the color on her skin and the addition of the emerald earrings!
golden emmy
Emmy Rossum in Armani Privé. This dress was quite simple, but oh so stunning. Though I’m not a huge diamond person, I really liked the necklace too. Without it, the whole ensemble would have seemed like it was missing something. And her red lip paired perfectly with the dress.
globes melissa
Melissa Benoist in Monique Lhuillier. She is just so naturally gorgeous and I loved that she kept it relatively simple with her gown. The silhouette was great for her body with the fitted bodice and looser skirt. Way to go Super Girl!
globes jennifer
Jennifer Lopez in Giambattista Valli. I am in love with this shade of yellow and it looked great against Jen’s tan skin. I also really loved her hair in this look. It wasn’t so severe as it has been several times before on the red carpet. I liked the more subtle makeup look too.
globes jenna
Jenna Dewan Tatum in Zuhair Murad Couture. The silhouette of this gown was very similar to Jaimie Alexander’s dress, but the difference in color and addition of some sparkle made it completely its own. I thought the color looked great on her and she’s always so gorgeous so no matter what she wears she’d probably make my list.
globes cate
Cate Blanchett in Givenchy. Not many people could pull this dress off, but Cate looked great, as per usual. I loved the old Hollywood glamour that this whole ensemble conveyed. I swear this woman only gets better with age!
