Golden Globing Live: Pre-show dress glam [Jan. 16th, 2011|07:08 pm]
Zoethe
Okay, so I know a lot of you don't care AT ALL about award shows. As it happens, I like them. And so I am going to post my impressions as we go along. You are certainly free to skip these entries. You are even free to tell me that I suck and award shows are stupid and I shouldn't waste my time.

I will then feel free to ignore you.

Anyway, to the dresses! Watching E! and their GlamCam-awesomeness. Can't get everyone, so concentrating on people I know.

Olivia Wilde: gorgeous jeweled dress, very princess-y. Love it.

Kaley Cuoco: pulls off the beige ruffles quite well, but girl, do your hair! It's like you barely brushed it. It's your first Globes; make sure you're invited back.

Jennifer Love-Hewitt: the crumb-catcher wobbles, which is a little distracting, but otherwise not bad.

Jennifer Lawrence: You are gorgeous; even that dress can't hide it. Striking, but I haven't decided if I like it. Second view? I'm actually digging it.

Sarah Hyland: you look so cute! Nice choice. Very pretty.

Jayma Mays: No. That doesn't work. Doesn't fit, the modest panels are wrong. Ick.

Diana Agron: Nice and glam. Saved from being boring by a great necklace.

Elizabeth Moss: You really need to learn to do something with your hair, but the dress is gorgeous.

Julianne Hough: Auditioning for Cleopatra??

Helena Bonham Carter: Used to the crazy hair, but what are you wearing?? Need another look... Okay, second look: two different shoes and a dress made from shopping bags, I swear. WTF??

Melissa Leo: Age appropriate, but a little boring.

Kelly McDonald: Love the glam hair, sleek dress.

Julie Bowen: Love the ruffles, very distinctive.

Nicole Kidman: Pretty, but some year could you wear some color...?

Jane Krakowski: Boring, hon. Sorry.

Natalie Portman: I'm confused why you're wearing a bath sheet.

January Jones: You look like a Sword and Sandals wet dream...

And now on to the show! EDIT: oops, misread. Another hour of preshow...

She's also liveblogging on LJ. This is a great night to be in front of the computer. All I need is a TV in this room.

I'm glad she's liveblogging. I want to quit already.

I'm sad that I don't know who a lot of these people are! Clearly I need to get out more. :)

But now I want to see pictures of these outfits - especially Helena Bonham Carter's.

Helena Bonham Carter's awesomely awful dress and shoe assemblage is here:

You can probably see them on the front page of yahoo. Because the Globes have TV, too, it's a bigger crowd.

I am in mad, mad love with the one red, one green shoe look. It's AWESOMELY AWFUL.

Yes, that seems to be the consensus. Not quite sure why that's different from the swan dress, but there you go.

Well, for one thing, I'm so thrilled with the shoes that I'm not paying attention to the dress. Which in this case is a good thing.

I actually thought Natalie Portman's dress was kind of classy, but mostly because I am not a fan of seeing pregnant bellies. Olivia Wilde's was freaking awesome, and Helena Bonham Carter is just crazy. *Shrug*

Also, freaking Catherine Zeta-Jones WHY ARE YOU SO AMAZINGLY HOT?! And Ms. Johansen, I know I kind of hate your guts, but that is no reason to go out in your grandmother's cocktail dress.

Julia Stiles is always awesome, and her dress is awesome, and yet for some reason I don't think she and the dress are a good combo.

Maybe it looks better on TV than it did in the picture I saw. The sleeves are really what irked me.

I liked them because they were different, but the fashionistas are grading it low.

I don't care for awards shows. But reading your one line fashion reviews made me smile. :)

I just went and googled January Jones based on your description. I cannot possibly improve on your description of that dress, so I'll simply say thank you!
