Sunday evening’s Golden Globes didn’t set televisions ablaze, but that doesn’t mean fashion slacked off for the evening. Quite the contrary. From across the television and film worlds, stars came together in the most superficial way imaginable. Dresses worth thousands of dollars splashed down the red carpet with diamonds borrowed for the evening like Cinderella’s coach. Of course, fans and haters make a sport out of fashion, and we can join in for sheer fun. Fashion is always subjective, but ranking the “best” and “worst” dresses may make you feel better about those yoga pants. Shall we begin?
Best: Kirsten Dunst didn’t win an award for her role in Fargo (although many felt she deserved one). Dunst can take small comfort in knowing she wore one of the most flattering ensembles of the night. Her not-so-little black Valentino dress balanced a classic style with a classy flash of skin. This look is pure contemporary glamour.
Worst: Emilia Clarke also wore a black Valentino gown with less successful results. Where is your Mother of Dragons now, dear friends? She’s lost within many miles of fabric plus a sheer, curtain-filled cape on top. Pilgrim chic did the Golden Globes, and the results were baffling. Those dragons would set this dress on fire if they had the chance.
