Last night’s Golden Globe Awards, to my delight, featured one of the best red carpets in years. And by that I mean it was trampled on by both some divinely dressed stars (Lupita Nyong’o and Cate Blanchett, for example) and some celebs who should have been told to go home and change (Julia Roberts, why?). Here are my best and worst dressed. Share yours in the comments!
This year’s Academy Awards were rather exceptional — no, not because of Anne Hathaway’s annoyingly breathless acceptance speech — but because there were relatively few fashion missteps on the red carpet. Even Helena Bonham-Carter, a reliable style weirdo, managed to reign in her batcrackers look just a tad. So while these looks technically fall in the “worst dressed” category, we’d probably take any of these gowns over some of the crappy looks you might catch at the Grammys or the MTV Awards.

The good news is, the vast majority of those walking the red carpet at last night’s Emmy Awards were dressed nicely. Some I loved more than others (Edie Falco!

When it comes to last night’s People’s Choice Awards, I don’t even know where to begin. I’ll start by saying that I didn’t actually watch them. My standard when it comes to which awards are worth viewing? If Brad and Angelina are there, then I’m all in. While the reigning king and queen didn’t come out last night, just about every bold-faced name in Young Hollywood did. Seriously, there were dresses everywhere. Some were good, some were bad, and some were just abominable. Let’s start there.
Saving the best for last? Please! Let’s start our Monday morning off on the right foot, shall we, by checking out the best photos from last night’s Emmy Awards red carpet. And by “best,” I actually mean “worst” dressed, of course, because it’s the most fun.
US fashion is as diversified and geographically distinct as food or accent, but as GQ found when ranking 40 American cities based on fashion, our bad taste in clothing is rampant regardless of which coast you’re on. Take a look at the results of their “deeply scientific, irrefutable poll” to see where your city stacks up, or check out the unlikely worst five below (along with GQ’s scathing criticism):
1. Boston: Because its residents consist overwhelmingly of undergrads, it’s hard for this preppy metropolis to be anywhere but the bottom. Forever plagued by pleats and frat boys, “if you wonder how a people can live like this, well, it’s ‘Jurassic Park’ for fashion troglodytes: Life finds a way.” Read more… Keep reading »
