Golden Globes: Favorite Outfits

The Golden Globes may have been a week ago, but between getting the flu, starting school, and having to get stitches (more on that later), I never had time to post about them!

Like everyone else, I believe awards show season isn't just about who wins's about who wears what. The day after the Globes aired, I scoured website after website to see what everyone thought about this year's crop of dresses. I was surprised that a lot of people don't agree with who I picked as "Best Dressed". 

For me this year, there was just too much skin showing. I mean, Jennifer Lopez...she looked good, but c'mon!) I'm not a prude or anything, but these are the Golden Globes. They're one step down from the Oscars, so they should be kept classy. But I guess that's just my opinion, and who knows what I would choose to wear if I was a super-talented celebrity and I had a rockin' bod to show off to the world?

That said, here are my top five "best dressed" nominees for the 2013 Golden Globes:

1. Taylor Swift
I really didn't want to like her dress, because I don't particularly like her. (How many celebrity hot guys has she dated at this point? And how many of them has she complained about in her songs?) This plum looks so great on her, and it's a good color to wear for the beginning of January. The dress is simple enough that nothing distracts from her, yet the back is tastefully done and adds a bit of interest to it.

2. Clare Danes
The woman just had a baby a month ago and look at her! If I just had a baby, you wouldn't see me on the red carpet for at least six months. The dress is simple, but appropriate for the Golden Globes. The color looks great on her and isn't your typical red. Also, she receives major bonus points for this right after popping out a baby!

3. Anne Hathaway
This dress seems to be hit and miss with a lot of people, but I liked it. A lot of people seemed to be wearing neutrals this year, but I thought most of them matched their skin tones too closely. This white doesn't blend in with Anne's skin at all, and definitely stands out. The dress  gives Anne Hathaway a really nice shape. Though the two-pieceness of it might seem like an odd choice, I think it fits really well with her haircut. Imagine her with her hair long--could you see her wearing this dress? How about short hair--could she pull off any of the other dresses people wore that night? I don't think so. She made a perfect choice with this.

4. Hayden Panettiere
This wins the award for the dress that I would probably want to wear to the Golden Globes. It just looks nice and sweet, and definitely age appropriate for someone in their late teens/early twenties. I don't know about the pink clutch, but it does incorporate the neon trend onto a red carpet filled with neutrals, blacks and reds. 

5. Lucy Liu
Some of you will question this choice for sure. I don't know why, but I really like this dress! It's so different, and that's what I love about it. She took a risk, and although I admit the pattern looks slightly like something you'd see on vintage wallpaper, it it goes really well with her skin tone and her hair. She took a risk, and people just aren't used to seeing a patterned dress like this at the Golden Globes.

What do you think about my choices? Who were your best dressed/worst dressed candidates for the Globes?


  1. Emily Blunt was my favorite!!

    Much Love

  2. I loved Anne Hathaway, Clair Danes, Naomi Watts, Isla Fisher (although she was a tad too tan), and Jennifer Lawrence. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone wears to the Oscars next month!


  3. Loved Taylor Swift's dress. Just gorgeous! And I really like Anne Hathaway's too. She stood out in a very good way.
