2012 Golden Globes

Monday, January 16, 2012
I generally find awards shows a bit of a snooze. I love the opening monologues and watching the red carpet...buuuuttt that's about it. While I love film, I would much rather just read about the winners the next day. I do however love skewering the celebrities and their fashion yay's and nay's.....by myself....out loud.....while stuffing my face full of carbs (homemade mac & cheese, if you're curious) and thinking "I really need to get back to yoga" (except I can't, which is a whole other story).

So because I know you're dying to know, the Haus of Hybrid's BEST and WORST of the 2012 Golden Globes.

(Sidebar: Did anyone else notice that there were a large number of underwhelming gowns? Neither best nor worst, but just, meh.)

The Worst

Amanda Peet in Marc Jacobs
I just can't.

Amy Poehler in Naeem Khan
The sleeves are wrong. The colour is wrong. It's just wrong.
Callie Thorne
Is this the 90s? Bedazzling? Are we mermaids? A sea-foamy grey? Take off the sheer and the rhinestones and we could have a winner...and by winner, I mean Calvin Klein Collection.
Dianna Agron in Giles
I feel like the dress is just so overwhelming on her. It's a daring choice for her, but it doesn't work. I could see January Jones wearing this.
Emily Watson
Emily Watson is on a show called Appropriate Adult (there's a joke there...somewhere). This dress is pretty much the exact colour of her skin.
Jessica Chastain in Givenchy
Turtlenecks, so in right now. But I just cannot get on board with this dress.
Jodie Foster in Gorgio Armani
The Von Trapp children called and they want their clothing back. Is this dress made out of corduroy? Is it a tapestry? Drapes? (Also, special shout out to the man with the crazy mo' in the back!)
Natalie Portman in Lanvin
I love me a pink and red combo...but what is that thing sticking out on the side? Know what it reminds me of?
The ugly step sisters from Cinderella
Naya Rivera
Is this from Macy's? It looks cheap.
Piper Perabo in Theyskens' Theory
While I enjoy the simplicity of this gown, and the fact that it's a hard colour to wear without washing you out, I just can't do it.
Sarah Paulson in Pamella Roland
I think part of me died when I saw this dress.

The Best

Clare Danes in J Mendel
 Well tailored and slimming in all the right areas. Plus black & white are so classic.
Emma Stone in Lanvin
I love this colour on Emma Stone. Sometimes when you're quite fair, black can be a bit stark on you. But this deep burgundy works for her. I love the shoulder pads, but I think the belt may be a bit strong.
Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace
On anyone else, this dress would be a snooze. But somehow Angelina can make an average dress look completely different. It fits amazingly and is neither black nor green! It's cream! Have we ever seen Angelina in a cream gown? It's almost pure.
Laura Dern in Andrew Gn
Love the colour (a little Angelia Jolie at the 2010 Globes, no?) and cut. I do not, however, love the hair. Charlie's Angels was cancelled, remember??
Michelle Williams in Jason Wu
Michelle Williams is just so cute all the time. Except last year when she wore that daisy dress thing. And I love me some Jason Wu. The print isn't overwhelming, and THIS is how you do a 3/4 sleeve (I'm talkin' to you, Poehler).
Nicole Kidman in Versace
Say what you want about her face, but this is the best Nicole Kidman has looked in awhile. In fact, this photo actually makes her face look good. The details on this dress take an otherwise boring gown and kick it up a few notches.
Nicole Richie in Julien MacDonald
This dress looked better on TV. But it's a great look for Nicole Richie. I'm totally digging the ponytail. Makes me wish my hair was long again. But then I'd wish for short hair again. #fashiongirlproblems
Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackerman
Pastels are so hot this season! I'm not always really into chiffon, but this dress (skirt?) paired with the satin jacket just work. And with Tilda's flawless skin? Into it. A variation on simplicity. I also REALLY want my hair to be like that.
Zooey Deschanel in custom Prada
Love this dress. Do not love her hair. Seems like Zooey and I have a similar body type (boyish), so I think this is a dress I could definitely pull off.

No comment on Charlize Theron's dress? I thought that was one of the best of the night.
