Golden Globes 2012: The Good, the Bad and Meryl’s Dress

I’m not the betting kind (in Vegas you’ll find me at the nickel slots), but if I had to put money on the red carpet, Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Winslet would be my aces in the hole every time. Reese, too, when her bubbies aren’t being held in place by tape. There’s not a stylist in hollywood who can take full credit for their confidence, understated beauty, and fresh interpretations of classic looks. They didn’t disappoint at last night’s Golden Globes, either. I also loved Kristen Wiig’s big, shiny brunette waves (rather Julia Roberts, no?) and Paula Patton’s canary-yellow dress. Then there are the unfortunates. Michelle was only upstaged by that black headband, Meryl and Jessica rode in on the same covered wagon (though the latter looked like she was headed for a brothel), and even Angelina’s famous face and matching lipstick couldn’t save her dress, which just stressed me out. Something about the vampy color combo and how it appears to be cutting into her arm pits . . .

What looks did you love/loathe?
