Red Carpet Recap: 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Happy Monday!!!

Awards Season totally helps in curing Holiday Season withdrawals, don't you think?
Last night's Golden Globe Awards has got to be my most favorite one so far -- Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, it doesn't get better than that. ;)

Anyway, let's get down to business and talk about what the stars wore:

Jennifer Garner -

Jennifer Garner

I put Jennifer Garner first because I really, really love her!
If you could choose a celebrity to be your Mom, who would you choose? I'd choose Jennifer Garner! ;)

The mom of three (Can you believe she has three kids???) looked absolutely beautiful in this Vivienne Westwood Couture burgundy sequin strapless gown -- the color is so gorgeous!

Adele -

NBC's

Adele looked amazing in her black Burberry dress and her Cartier jewels.
Her hair and makeup = flawless!

Jennifer Lawrence -

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards …

When I first saw the Best Actress winner in this dress, I wasn't quite sure if I liked it... but it totally grew on me and it looked amazing as she was walking up the stage. If anyone can pull off this Dior Haute Couture dress, it's Jennifer Lawrence.

Emily Deschanel -

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards …

I love how simple and elegant Emily Deschanel looked in her Badgley Mischka jet crepe column gown!
The deco beading detail at the shoulder adds just the right amount of design to the dress.

Kate Hudson -

Kate Hudson

When does this woman ever not look gorgeous???
She totally rocked her Alexander McQueen dress.

Kristen Bell -

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards …

Some fashion critics didn't like this look, but I loved it!
I think the mom-to-be looked great and I love her Jenny Packham dress -- so pretty!

Anne Hathaway -

NBC's

I was cheering like crazy when Anne Hathaway won!
There's nothing surprising about the Best Supporting Actress winner's beaded Chanel strapless dress (from the SS09 Haute Couture Collection), but it's so Anne -- simple and beautiful!

Amy Adams -

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards …

She always looks fantastic, don't you think?
Even though this Marchesa dress is not my absolute favorite, I still think it's gorgeous.

BTW, they're making Enchanted 2 -- I am so so so excited!!!

Taylor Swift -

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards …

I'm happy that Taylor decided to stay away from her usual sparkly dresses, but I am not a fan of this look.
I think her Donna Karan Atelier taffeta gown is a wee bit too frumpy and wrinkly. Not to mention, I don't think it fits her too well, it's a little loose.

Rachel Weisz -

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards …

She's so pretty, but I'm not sure I can say the same about her Louis Vuitton dress.
I just don't get it... I feel like it's something I would've worn to a birthday party (minus the sheer skirt) when I was in high school. :/

Halle Berry -

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards: …

Gorgeous woman, not so gorgeous dress.
I am not a fan of Halle Berry's printed Atelier Versace gown... the high slit plus the cutout details plus the busy print were a bit too much to put together in one dress.

There we have it, that's the end of my 2013 Golden Globe Awards red carpet recap!
Because I wanted to keep this short, there are a ton of looks not included on this post, so tell me...

Whose look did you like the best? Whose look did you not like at all?
What were your favorite moments from last night's show?

I hope you are all having a great start to the week!

  4. Hi dear, I also did my GG post today :) I loved Hayden Panettiere's gown and Naomi Watts, my least favourite was Rachel Weisz (only because I totally dislike polka dots)

  6. I didn't watch The Golden Globes like someone else commented I too was watching Once Upon Time and Revenge. I love looking at the fashion after the awards show though. I think my favorites in your post are Adele and Emily Deschanel. And I absolutely agree with the dresses you don't like. I was a little disappointed with Taylor Swift's dress. I am usually a fan of her sparkly dresses, but I am definitely a sparkle kind of girl.

  7. I like the elegant black ones the most; Nicole Kidman's was a standout to me. I'm so not into the fishtail look, and I don't think it was flattering on anyone! Too frumpy.

    1. i think only a select few look good in fishtail dresses. ;)

  14. hey mimi!! awesome post! although, i wasn't able to watch the golden globes, i sure had fun seeing the pics and reading your comments. i agree with everything you said about the ladies and their dresses here. you were spot on! or we just have super good taste! .-) (hee, hee). anyhow, all of these women are beautiful in their own right but gotta say the best coordinated outfit and look goes to jennifer lawrence and anne hathaway. however, amy adams looks gorgeous and will always be one of my top faves as actresses go!

  18. Anne Hathaway looks gorgeous even with her pixie cut. I was definitely so happy when she won. I also really like Jennifer Lawrence's dress. And of course, Jennifer Garner!!! How awkward was it that Jennifer Lopez was there too?! Haha.

  19. I have to agree having Jennifer Gardner as a mom :D I love her! and her kids are so adorable!! I agree with you on some of the dresses but I saw the one Eva was wearing and I loved it. I thought the showing the legs was a lil too much it reminds me of Angelina Jolie last year I think but I loved the top. I saw it on fashion police :P I was sad I didnt get to watch the golden globes :(

    1. the top part of eva longoria's dress was pretty, but i think it's just a little too open. it had a super high slit, a plunging neckline, and it was backless -- too much for one dress. :/

      Delete
  20. I like the dress on Jennifer Lawrence, I don't
    think I would have liked it by itself :p
    and I agree with you on Taylor Swift's dress ><
    it is a bit too big and I don't think the colour
    suits her that well either. It makes her look older

    1. yeah, that's true, it just looks good on jennifer. ;) and yes, taylor's dress totally makes her look old. :/
