The 2012 Golden Globes. Well…ok. I’ve been writing Thread Conscious for two years. You know by now that I try to stay positive at all times. But there comes a time when fashion is so bad, and so disappointing, that you find yourself picking the best of the worst, because there just wasn’t enough good to go around. That time has come. I was not wowed by the fashion of the Golden Globes this year. I was sooo…underwhelmed. It was a fashion fail. Up first is the Best Dressed (relatively speaking) and then the Worst Dressed…plus some more mess. All photos courtesy of WireImage except where noted. Happy Monday.
ON TO THE BEST DRESSED
Rooney Mara: Edgy cut-outs in black. That seems to be Rooney’s M.O., so it’s expected. At least the dress was interesting.
Helen Mirren: Love the color on Helen, and the fact that there’s a different texture on the bottom. Sophisticated with just the right amount of bling, at the waist, no doubt. I really like this dress.
Paula Patton: Paula looks gorgeous in this classic mermaid silhouette, in the happiest hue of yellow. I don’t hate it. #winning.
AND ON TO THE WORST DRESSED!
Angelina Jolie: I don’t know. No, I can’t. It’s just wrong. The fabric looks cheap, the slash of red at the neckline isn’t a pleasant surprise, it’s an eye sore. For once, I paid more attention to what Brad Pitt was wearing.
Amanda Peet: Unfortunately, I think I’ve seen something like this before. And it was a very unflattering wedding dress.
Missi Pyle: The color’s not bad, but that’s the only good thing about this frock. This dress looks like it came straight from Windsor. Actually, Windsor has better looking dresses than this.
AND MORE FASHION FAILS
Natalie Portman: I love Natalie Portman. She’s known for her intelligence as well as her talent. But I don’t understand why she repeated last year’s Golden Globes red and pink fiasco this year.
AND IT GETS BETTER. I MEAN WORSE.
Zooey Deschanel and Emily Deschanel: People seem to like Zooey’s zany fashion sense and I have to admit I don’t completely hate her dress. I’m just having trouble articulating what I don’t like about. But Emily, Betty White called and she wants her dress back.
Ok, that’s enough. The rest of the week will be more positive, I promise!
