The Best and Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes

Last night’s 74th Golden Globes officially kicked off awards season. Many think a Golden Globes win is a good predictor of an Oscar victory and who wins the red carpet best dressed of the season. Looking at the gowns that strode on that carpet last night, the trends included red lips, structured hairstyles, off-the-shoulder necklines, lace, yellow, pastels, big earrings, and lots of metallic shades from silver to platinum and gold. Louis Vuitton was the hot designer of the night — the brand dressed many of the nominees.

Thandie Newton, Emma Stone and Viola Davis ruled the night wearing modern, yet romantic evening dresses.

There were fashion disasters (sorry Jessica Biel and Chrissy Teigen), and some celebs who kept to the same old style they wear year after year after year.

Let’s see the major fashion victories and superstar defeats of the night. Read on to see who was the best and the worst dressed. 

Best Dressed

Nominee Ruth Negga (“Loving”) looked futuristically cool in a silver gown by Louis Vuitton and gold wrist cuff from Fred Leighton.

Viola Davis wore a sleek Michael Kors gown and a whopping 90 carats of diamonds from Harry Winston, creating one of the chicest looks of the night.

From the criss-cross bodice on the gorgeous red Rodarte gown to the sparkly Forevermark jewelry, Brie Larson embodied movie star glamour.

Natalie Portman and her baby bump glowed in this bead-detailed gown from Prada.

Emma Stone

Not only did Emma Stone’s Valentino gown feature a constellation o' stars, even on the straps, but she complemented it with Tiffany & Co. jewelry and pretty Jimmy Choo shoes.

Sophie Turner

Black, white and bold! “Game of Thrones” Sophie Turner rocked crisp, modern style from red carpet favorite Louis Vuitton.

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana looked so sophisticated and stylish in this Gucci gown. You can hear the knock-offs being made all over town.

Thandie Newton

Hate to use this cliché, but ”Westworld’s” Thandie Newton was on fire in this Monse gown and dazzling diamonds by Harry Winston.

Worst Dressed

Sarah Jessica Parker

While watching the red carpet parade, my friend turned to me and said, “SJP looks like a 'Star Wars' reject.”

Nicole Kidman

On the red carpet, Nicole Kidman always takes fashion risks. Ten percent of the time it works out. This outfit, featuring a McQueen gown with dangling silvery things that look like car keys and the weird puffed off-the-shoulder sleeves, is not one of them.

Drew Barrymore

The Best and Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes

Why, Drew, why? This off-the-shoulder dress has so many things going on. The beading, patterns and details. You looked lost in it. Everyone got dizzy looking at you.

Sofia Vergara

It looks like she wore armor from a really, really bad B movie about dragons.

Jessica Biel

The Best and Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes

Jessica Biel may have been wearing Elie Saab, but it still looked like she stapled a scarf to her skirt. But I do like the Ferragamo sandals and sparkly jewelry from Neil Lane.

Kerry Washington

The Best and Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes

Yes, it may be Dolce & Gabbana, but Kerry Washington’s red carpet dress still looks like it was made with a crochet kit.

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen is gorgeous, brilliant, funny and has an amazing body. That said, this dress by Marchesa looks like my great aunt’s dressy table cloth. It’s just too glitzy and overdone.

Carrie Underwood

Don’t get too close to Carrie — I think the top of her gown might eat you. If you've seen “Little Shop of Horrors,” the top looks like Seymour's twin.
