Golden Globes 2009 Red Carpet : Up Close

So, what did we see?

Pale gowns:
Penelope Cruz, Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace, America Ferrera in Oscar de la Renta, Amanda Seyfried and Demi Moore.

Shiny dresses:
Megan Fox in Ralph Lauren, Venessa Hudgens in Alberta Ferretti and Jennifer Lopez in Marchesa.

Interesting colors:
Cameron Diaz in Chanel, Freida Pinto in Lacroix, Rumer Willis in Reem Acra,

Tightly pulled back hair:
Eva Longoria, Heidi Klum (what do you think of her makeup?) and Kate Beckinsale

(and Tina Fey, lovely and charming otherwise, with the best quote of the night- "If you ever start to feel too good about yourself, they have this thing called the Internet"- showed why messy buns can get out of hand by the time you're up there receiving your award)

It's good to see less harsh black eyeliner this year. Eye makeup is softer and more flattering, and it definitely looked better both online and on screen. Above: Julie Benz. I'm not even sure what show she is on these days, but the Buffy nerd in me squeals happily.

Worst hair was a tie between Drew Barrymore and Renee Zellweger, who also had one of the worst outfits. Her Carolina Herrera top and skirt made her look something out of a Tim Burton film.

And is it just me, or does Olivia Wilde have an Angelina Jolie thing going on?

A trend that needs to go away: Beards. Too many men had them, from Sting and Brad Pitt to Steve Carell and Tony Shalhoub. Please shave. Especially you, Steve.

  1. I really like Rumer Willis's dress but think that belt is cutting it in half, i know it's on trend but it ruins it a bit. Angelina Jolie always looks so comfortable and relaxed on the red carpet, I don't think her dress is anything special but I like that she looks so comfortable in her own skin.

  2. I bet you anything the stylist for Drew Barrymore was like, "We'll have you do a Marilyn Monroe coiffure, dah-ling. After she's been impolitely mussed. It's inspired." And Barrymore was like, "Um, ok!"

  3. Julie Benz is on 'Dexter' nowadays, doing a great job on one of my favourite shows.
    I love to see Buffy alumni doing well! And she looks very pretty here.

  4. Well, I liked Drew's hair. I think she's channeling Bobbi Barrett from "Mad Men."

  5. Drew's hair is crazy, but I liked her dress.
