Golden Globe Awards 2011: Best dressed and worst dressed
The Golden Globes 2011: it was a night for films like "The Social Network" and TV shows like "Glee" to be honored, a night to see some of Hollywood's brightest stars drink too much while looking bored out of their famous heads and a night to potentially be insulted on live television by Ricky Gervais.
It also was a night for fine (and less than fine) fashion. After watching the red carpet shows and taking long follow-up looks this morning at photos of various gowns and get-ups, we've compiled our list of the five best and worst dressed at this year's event. Take a look at who they are, then rank them in our online surveys.
Natalie Portman: She made pregnancy look sweet and chic in a pink Victor + Rolf gown with a red rose accent.
Catherine Zeta-Jones: Wearing one of the more popular colors of the night, a vibrant emerald green, Zeta-Jones looked like royalty next to equally regal, cancer-beating husband Michael Douglas.
Sofia Vergara: Va and va, let us introduce you to voom via the "Modern Family" star's red, curve-hugging Vera Wang stunner.
Olivia Wilde: The "Tron Legacy" star looked like a princess in her Marchesa gown; the skirt was big but when there's that much sparkle, big is better.
Jane Lynch: In a black Ali Rahimi gown that was tailored and polished but boasted enough shimmer to make it a little edgy, Lynch once again established herself as a lady who knows how to do the red carpet right.
Honorable mentions: Claire Danes and Emma Stone for opting to go with bright, unusual colors, Jennifer Lawrence for looking hip and elegant, Michelle Pfeiffer for looking simple and beautiful and Robert Downey Jr. for adding a splash of color to his look courtesy of a crimson red tie.
Helena Bonham Carter: We appreciate Carter's liberated attitude toward fashion. But this Vivienne Westwood ensemble -- which we suggest that even Cyndi Lauper-circa-1984 would have dismissed for looking too thrift-shop insane -- just did not work. Wearing different colored strappy heels only added to the overall sense that Carter may have temporarily lost her vision while choosing this outfit. (Or, on the contrary, perhaps she wanted to look shockingly askew. Discuss?)
Jennifer Lopez: During our live Globes discussion, one of our readers described J. Lo's gown as quinceanera gone wrong. Which sounds about right.
Tilda Swinton: Swinton has her own unique sense of style. At the Globes this year, that meant she sported an upper half that looked like it had gone to The Gap, and a lower half that just found a bargain at the Jessica McClintock outlet store. Love the actress, hate the outfit.
Julianne Moore: Asymmetrical dresses and puffy sleeves were trendy on the red carpet. Moore combined both in this Lanvin number but without success. This just makes it look as though satin forces are moving in on the beautiful red-head's chin.
Scarlett Johansson: Her gown was unflattering and way too mother of the bride. Fortunately no one noticed because they were too distracted by her hair, which looked like it was trying to make a break for it and flee right off her head. Save this 'do for Halloween, ScarJo. It will look perfect when you go as the Bride of Frankenstein.
(Dis)honorable mentions: Sandra Bullock for a droopy gown and even droopier bangs, Michelle Williams for attempting a bit too much flower power and Justin Bieber for pairing his tux with sneakers and 3D glasses.
