So, the Golden Globe Awards 2013 passed more than a week ago. I can’t help seeing the pictures of some of the stars posted in the news on the Yahoo! website. Some stood a level above others in their elegantly sophisticated dresses, while some others just fall flat. 😉 These are some that caught my eye, the good ones and a few of the bad ones.
Halle BerryThe gown alone had me drooling. This is the kind of gown that I like. And with Halle Berry wearing it? It’s just gorgeous. I think there’s no need to say she looks downright sexy. It’s an understatement. Really. Hugging all her curves at all the right places. And flowy flippy end at the bottom of the gown just creates a feeling of freedom and vibrance.
Jennifer LopezWhoa! This is one sexy mama! Not my kinda gown, but damn JLo pulled it off like a shining star. What’s amazing is I can’t even see where her skin starts, where the skin colored linings layer or where the laces end. Splendid. With her hot bod, I gotta say, JLo fits this kinda body-clinging dresses like she’s one with them. Thumbs up to this mama of two!
Anne HathawayLove her new short hair, but as much as I like Hathaway, this dress just does nothing for her. She looks like stick. Too skinny in my opinion. I think this kinda gown would look fabulous on slim or voluptuous bodies, but on her figure, it just makes her look unhealthily thin. But congratz on the win! That’s the only glamour of Anne Hathaway that night.
Kate HudsonThe hair, the dress… Love them all. Although black ain’t anywhere near my favourite color, but Kate Hudson made me love this gown. I think she is one of the definitions of ‘wearing the gown’, instead of ‘letting the gown wear you’. The combination of black and gold somehow brightens her face and enhances her beautiful soft locks. She’s definitely elegant and chic personified.
Jennifer GarnerI personally think Jennifer is really pretty person, BUT this is just an epic failure in fashion. She has the potential to look absolutely stunning, but I think her stylist kinda screwed up this time. The hair makes her look like she’s shopping grocery in the market, the red dress just clashes with the red carpet and the cut of the dress makes her look rather sloppy in it. Sorry Jennifer, but you just blend into the background. Or to be more accurate, the floor.
Jessica AlbaDon’t think orange is really Jessica Alba’s color, but I think overall, she looks nice. Simple and sweet. Trust me when I say, it’s not easy to looks simple and not bland. Jessica Alba did a great job in making simple look sweetly elegant. Kudos.
Amanda SeyfriedLove the bottom half of the gown, but hate the top part. Amanda didn’t stand out in this dress, but at least she’s no where near ‘worst dressed’. What she had on is what I’d call average. For a normal formal dinner or party, I’d say this is nice, but its the Golden Globes. This just looks a little plain to the eye. But oh well, at least she looks presentable.
Taylor SwiftI’m not a fan of ‘mermaid gowns’, but I think Taylor looks nice in this gown. I actually am a fan of the straight cut top. Had always love that design. Anyway, love the way her hair is all slicked back. All posh and elegant, but with some sense of power behind it. The gown can be a little plain, but I think her makeup and hair style just makes this look work. So good job, Taylor! Even though I really prefer what she wore for the Country Music Awards 2012. She looks absolutely stunning there. Here, she just looks nice.
Nicole KidmanI actually thought the dress looks nice. But not Nicole in the dress. Know what I mean? Just like Hathaway above, this just makes her look unhealthily sick. I can actually imagine how the dress would look on someone with slight slim curves, like Scarlett Johansson, or even those with voluptuous like JLo mentioned above. It would have been a killer. But on Nicole, it loses it’s charm. She just looks skinny, not slim. Would have prefered to see her in a more flowly dress, so maybe then, she won’t look so thin. Sorry Nic, but this just falls flat.
Sienna MillerThis is just ATROCIOUS. Horrifying. The dress. If that’s what you call them. It looks like someone just took my grandmother’s doilies and sewed them together to make this gown for Miller. I just. I can’t even. Oh gawd. It’s just. Ugh! Why she even agreed to wear this in public is beyond my comprehension.
Megan FoxSimple dress. Simple, but very nice. Sweet even. The soft off-white color. Love it. However, there’s just something that don’t pop. I think Megan Fox lost her attractiveness. Her face looks so mean and old. Last time, she looks like those hot bitchy type, but now she just looks mean. Forgive me, but it’s safe to say, the look on her face spoiled her entire appearance. If only she softened her face or smiled, she’d looks really pretty in the gown. So, sorry but this is don’t work for me.
AdeleI know there are many who’d say this is a boring gown. I won’t deny it. But I think Adele looked gorgeous in this. Her hair and makeup is splendid. But her confidence makes this dress look good on her. Another plus point? She didn’t try to fit in, trying to squeeze into those tight fitting, sleeveless gowns like many of the ‘chubby’ actresses try to do. She stuck to who she was, with confident and pulled it off. So thumbs up, Adele!
Now, I saw this on Perez Hilton’s blog and I just couldn’t resist reposting it. My money’s on Eva Longoria. She looks absolutely stunning. And as good as Angelina Jolie looked, her bones can be seen under that layer of skin. This comparison between Eva and Angelina just shows very clearly the difference between being slim and being skinny. 😉 It’s sad to see how Angelina has lost so much weight in the recent years when previously, she was one of the hottest Hollywood stars who was slim with all the curves in the right places. (Remember her Tomb Raider days?) So yeah, sorry but Eva wins this hands down, in my opinion. 😉
