Top 10 2010 Golden Globe Looks

Did you check out the Golden Globes on Sunday? If you said yes, you’re a super star. No? You’re me (a super slacker). Luckily, the good ol’ internet has our back, as usual.

Let’s take a look at some of my favorite Golden Globes looks, in no particular order.

………………………………………………………………

Emily Blunt This dress is the stuff of dreams, what with its like-a-glove fit, foamy netting and pretty pretty princess hue.

………………………………………………………………

Sandra Bullock I know the color is a bit melty-purple-crayon, but there’s no denying that the fit is exquisite.This rein-ya-in shape would look great on most body types.

………………………………………………………………

Marion Collitard The architectural asymmetry? I die. In theory, this dress’s focus should be lopsidded boobage, but it instead manages to present itself as just artistic enough.

………………………………………………………………

Cameron Diaz Cameron by now has red carpet pro status, as well as the stylist know-how that goes with it. Thus it’s not surprising that this straight sheath works well with her tall, narrow frame. And for once, the matching-lipstick -to-dress maneuver finds victory.

………………………………………………………………

Anna Paquin I realize this dress looks somewhat like a creation in which Mod Podge had a hand. But this one is best viewed from a few steps back; take the dress as a whole in terms of the coloring and cut. Details do not always rule; in this case, big pictures trumps.

………………………………………………………………

Jennifer Garner Very “I’m a movie star and just threw this on,” no? This one wins in its simplicity and age-appropriateness. She’s covered, but le sex is not lost; body-hugging seaming and a gentle shimmer do the trick.

………………………………………………………………

Lea Michelle What can I say? I’m a sucker for a sweetheart neckline. And goth elements infused in a fairytale shape. And frothy, feathery petticoats… Bravo Oscar.

………………………………………………………………

Maggie Gyllenhaal A little strategically placed origami never hurt anyone. In fact, I assess it did quite the opposite for Ms. Gyllenhaal. Also conquering the mermaid is always not as easy feat, but alas, Roland did it and did it well.

………………………………………………………………

Diane Kruger I assume this choice is likely to be contested, but I’m holding my ground. It’s Christian Lacroix people! This Christian Lacroix. This is a designer to whom fashion is pure art — art undiluted by commercial objectives. Anyone brave enough willing to risk worst dressed lists to convey this message wins my vote.

………………………………………………………………

Taylor Lautner Yeah, I couldn’t resist. That is all.

    I agree with all, though I am only on board with Diane Kruger’s dress not because it’s Christian Lacroix, but because it’s DIANE KRUGER and SHE IS AWESOME. That reasoning is also why I can forgive that part of Marion Cotillard’s dress that looks like she wore a slip because the slit went to far up her leg. It looks kinda funky, but it’s MARION COLTILLARD. Maggie impressed me. This is unusually polished for her.

      Totally valid reasoning on both fronts (Diane and Marion). Very good point about Maggie – polished is a good word. Sometimes, she tends to lean on the messy side in terms of dressing. But I thought she was a standout at this event.
