Golden Globes 2019: Best and Worst Dressed

 

TV and film’s biggest stars pulled out all the stops at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Red lips, big sleeves and plunging necklines were the big themes of the red carpet. Nicole and I made our picks for the best and worst looks of the night below. (Spoiler alert: we both liked Kerry Washington’s boob necklace. Fight us.)

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2020 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Jen: I adore a good ladysuit and Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge more than delivers in this sparkly Ralph & Russo. Love the cut, love the hair, love the attitude, love her.

Nicole: Although the structure of Beanie Feldstein’s Oscar de la Renta gown is simple, it’s flattering and I like the way the neckline frames her face and her simple yet elegant braided headband. The look is fun, youthful and perfect for a young nominee.

Jen: Ana de Armas‘ knives are out in this sparkling blue Ralph & Russo number. Bonus points for the pockets!

Nicole: Taylor Swift is wearing boho Italian brand Etro and the bold print is a standout on the red carpet. The tank-style top is casual and the cutout keeps the large structured gown from overwhelming her frame. The gown says ‘I know I’m just here for fun and definitely not to win for #Cats.’

Jen: When Zoey Deutch stepped onto the red carpet in this perfectly tailored canary Fendi jumpsuit, I gasped. The colour is perfect, the hair is excellent and the jewelry pulls the whole thing together. A stunner.

Nicole: Charlize Theron is wearing Dior as per usual but this look is carried by her overall styling with the black nails, the corset trend, the shoulder cape and a totally different green shade that we’ve not seen. Electric and edgy and matches her overall vibe. Max girl crush.

Jen: I was really hoping Saoirse Ronan would bring it, and she did not disappoint! This slinky, backless, sideboob-y Celine is a dream. She can, as the kids say, step on my neck.

Nicole: Kerry Washington in Altuzzara is a revelation. I love the slinky skirt which totally offsets the structured jacket under which she’s wearing… a necklace? God, I love this even though I have no idea what’s happening. Her styling is impeccable with a sleek bob and bright red lip. Edgy and elegant. [Jen: I also love this look but judging from the internet, we’re totally alone in this 🤣]

WORST DRESSED AT THE 2020 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Jen: I love when stars take a risk on the red carpet, but Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Fendi look is a LOT to process. My eyes don’t know where to focus first. The ab-baring bikini with the prairie dress cover up? The necklace buried underneath? The colour that matches her spray tan? The ass corset? It’s all too much!!

Nicole: Jennifer Lopez showed up with A Rod who looked more like her security detail than her fiancée. From the neck up, she’s gorgeous. Then it’s like a Christmas gift that I wrapped (i.e. – no amount of bows can make up for how awful it looks). Wrinkled and big and not what I would have expected from Maison Valentino or her. (Also shut the f*ck up during her interviews, ARod.)

Jen: I know the internet is in love with Baby Yoda, but there’s no need for cosplay, Jodie Comer. This is a wrinkled, shapeless disaster from Mary Katrantzou. Villanelle would never!

Nicole: Cate Blanchett is a VIBE but her Mary Katranzou dress is as messy as the film she’s nominated for (Where’d You Go Bernadette was better as a book!). She leans into the statement sleeve trend but the bodice and skirt throw this look off-kilter. New York Times’ IG caption said “wait for the back” but I guess that’s only because it’s just as bad from behind?

Jen: Dakota Fanning plays the part of a pouffy princess in Dior. I’m all for a bit of whimsy on the red carpet, but Kirsten Dunst did it better tonight in pale pink Rodarte.

Nicole: From the waist up, Scarlett Johansson up looks lovely. Predictable but lovely. So why on earth would Vera Wang feel the need to add a giant ass bow? Why does this continue to be a thing? Also can we just construct better gowns that don’t need figure skater material to hold them together? What happened to good old fashioned double-sided tape??

Brad Pitt, Chris Evans, Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson Among W’s Performers of the Year

brad pitt chris evans adam driver scarlett

-W released its Best Performances issue and I pretty much hate all of the styling. Brad Pitt looks weirdly skinny, Adam Driver‘s face is practically covered by a cup, Scarlett Johansson looks sick and for the love of god how hard is it to put Chris Evans in a cableknit?!

Cameron Diaz, 47, announced that she and hubby Benji Madden, 40, are the proud new parents of a baby girl they named Raddix.

This photo from today’s AFI luncheon captures all of my favourite things: champagne and both of my current unlikely crushes!

Jennifer Aniston was spotted in Mexico with director Will Speck. But she’s also with her usual new years’s trip gang (including Jimmy Kimmel and Jason Bateman) so I’m not quite convinced this is a romance.

-I don’t watch Project Runway but this contestant calling out judge Karlie Kloss‘ connection to the Kusher family was glorious. Apparently her subsequent critique of his design was harsher than she’s been in any of the previous 16 episodes.

-On New Year’s Day, a young couple were struggling to take a selfie on a hiking trail in Victoria when someone walked by and asked if they’d like help. That someone was Meghan Markle.

-Also, David Foster and Katherine McPhee helped hook Prince Harry and Meghan up with the $14 million house they stayed in on a secluded waterfront on Vancouver Island over the holidays.

-Page Six is calling out People for their coverage of Michelle Williams and Thomas Kail‘s engagement/pregnancy because the mag failed to mention they were both in serious relationships when they met a few months ago.

Charlize Theron‘s reaction when asked if The Bachelor’s Peter Weber has “slid into her DMs” is hilarious: “No. I don’t even know really what a DM is, let’s be honest. Maybe yes? I don’t think so. No.”

Zoe Kravitz shared pictures from her June wedding in Paris to Karl Glusman, including a shot featuring her Big Little Lies castmates, and a lovely photo of Lisa Bonet, Lenny Kravitz and Jason Momoa watching her walk down a staircase (which would have been even more lovely if Momoa hadn’t been wearing Birkenstocks).

Ansel Elgort‘s hand placement in the photo where he’s lifting up his girlfriend is…something.

-YouTubers Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul are “taking a break” after five months of supposed marriage.

-Outlander is still on? Here’s the season 5 trailer.

Margot Robbie says she used a fake Twitter account to observe how “young millennial conservative girls” operate before shooting Bombshell. I assume every celeb has shadow social media accounts, no?

DaBaby allegedly robbed a promoter of $80 cash, an iPhone 7, and a credit card before pouring apple juice on him. Wow.

-I liked this piece on how Greta Gerwig managed to redeem the character of Amy in Little Women.

-The reviews for Schitt’s Creek season 6 are glowing. I’m still only on season 3 so I have my work cut out for me…

-Killing Eve just got renewed for a fourth season and I kind of wish it hadn’t.

-I don’t know why this months-old photo of Paul Rudd seemed to be all over my Twitter TL today, but I’m not complaining.

-This year’s Coachella lineup is very meh.

-It’s weird that Uncut Gems is still releasing trailers when it’s already out in some cities, but go see it! I dug it.

Keanu Reeves Defies Age

-Here is the first look at Bill & Ted 3 (aka proof that Keanu Reeves is de-aging before our eyes).

-Look, if you had told me yesterday that the initial critical reaction to Cats would be slightly better than the initial reaction to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, I would not have believed you. And yet, here we are.

-Are people actually making fun of Adam Driver for stepping outside when a clip of his performance from A Marriage Story was played during an interview? Why? He sounds like he handled his (long documented) anxiety about this stuff politely and with grace.

Charlize Theron says her 7-year-old daughter’s feelings were hurt when she used the wrong pronouns to talk about her in past interviews, and she’s striving to be better.

-Variety published its annual list of TV stars’ salaries and as per usual, I’m fascinated.

-Speaking of TV, I dig the “retro” promos ABC just released for a bunch of their shows.

Madonna was spotted getting cozy with backup dancer Ahlamalik Williams. Merry Christmas to her!

Justin Timberlake is still in the doghouse, huh?

Prince William and Kate did some holiday baking and it was very cute.

Jennifer Ehle is far, far away from Pride and Prejudice in the Saint Maud trailer.
