Okay, honest: There wasn’t that much actual dreckitude at this year’s Golden Globes. As much as we love deriding a dress that’s just totally wrong, most celebs got it pretty spot on. So don’t think that everyone in this category is a total failure. It’s just that … they could have done better. It wasn’t that, for instance, Lena Dunham looked awful — it’s just that we would have picked something else for her. Maybe something not so heavy and drapery-like. And it’s not that Kristen Wiig didn’t look like a knock out. It’s just … the belly cutout on that dress was a bit too “pregnant high school girl at the prom.” But Julianne Hough? Sorry girl, your dress was tres terrible!
So we give the “bad” rating with those caveats in mind. Everyone there last night was a winner, and way better dressed than you or me, sitting on the couch watching at home (okay, maybe just me).
And who knows … maybe by this year’s Academy Awards we’ll be able to give some of them a mark for Most Improved.
