Golden Globes 2014 — Our Picks for Best and Worst Dressed!!


Hey guys!!

I know most men we know are getting geared up for the Superbowl, but in our little world, January means the start of…AWARDS SEASON!!

The awards are honestly an afterthought — it’s the FASHION that we are REALLY excited about.  Who will look amazing?  Who will surprise us with an epic fail?  Who will have a wardrobe malfunction???

Like any good armchair quarterback, Shelly and I decided to play fashion designer and choose OUR favorites and least favorites from Golden Globes night.  There were a lot of good ones!!

Shelly’s Picks for Best Dressed:


Jennifer Lawrence

Shelly said, “Maybe because she can do no wrong in my book. I thought she looked young and fresh and comfortable in her Dior dress.  I loved the dress, frankly, and loved the edgy black detail.”

I have to agree.  I had Jennifer on my list as well, but changed it so we didn’t duplicate.  There are some people that this dress would look AWFUL on, but Jennifer is NOT one of them!!

globes6Emma Watson

Shelly said, ” I am sure this made it to the worst list for some people but she looked so modern and cool in Dior Couture.”

Once again, Shelly totally picked my brain!!  I also had Emma on my list of best dressed.  She is so stunning and edgy.  And she will always be Hermoine to me, which I LOVE!!

NBC's "71st Annual Golden Globe Awards" - ArrivalsZooey Deshanel

Shelly said, ” loved loved this dress.  I love Zooey and she looked just perfectly pretty in her Oscar De La Renta.”

This one was just okay for me, but it DOES fit Zooey perfectly and I think she made it look cute.

My Picks for Best Dressed:


Amy Poehler (on the red carpet)

Amy is not really known for being gorgeous, and I honestly don’t know why.  The fact that she’s smart and funny makes her even MORE beautiful in my book.  This dress showed what she’s workin with — that body is BANGIN!!  I love the bracelet she paired it with, and the little cut out in the middle showed skin without being sleazy or not age appropriate.

globes3Taylor Swift

And I would be that person who chose Taylor Swift as a Golden Globe Best Dressed, so?  This dress looks beautiful on her frame, is age appropriate, sexy and not sleazy.  I love that she kept it simple with no giant jewels.  Her neckline and shoulders are the star!!

globes5Sandra Bullock

This dress made a lot of the worst lists, but I’m not hating.  I loved the pops of color and the cut of the neckline.  Her side pony is polished but not TOO polished, and her lipstick matches the pretty pink in her dress.  Love love LOVE Sandra!!

Shelly’s Picks for Worst Dressed:

globes8Paula Patton

Shelly said, “Such a pretty girl, such a huge weird white dress.  NO thank you very much.”

I agree one million percent.  WHAT ON EARTH???  It looks like an alien suit.

Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts

Shelly said, “I have to say I was expecting more.  She looked matronly?  She’s a hot mama and I wanted to see some vavavoom!”

I agree, Julia was on my Worst Dressed as well.  Her make up and hair look so fabulous, but the rest of her looks like a server at the Olive Garden.  Not hating — I waited tables for a huge chunk of my life…but I think all Olive Garden servers would agree, they’d never wear their uniform to a red carpet.

globes10Sarah Hyland

Shelly said, “Honestly the dress was ok, but the make up.  NOOOOOO.  It’s like they were trying to make her look bad..which is almost impossible, because she’s adorable.”

I agree that the dress was cute, but can we talk about the hair?  Not loving it.

My Picks for Worst Dressed:


Lena Dunham

Lena.  Why?  WHHHYYYY????  Is this some kind of statement to awards shows?  Please tell me this is an inside joke or something.  Because I feel like you are too smart to think something THIS awful is okay.  I am all for unconventional beauty, but not in bright yellow with an ill fitting top.

globes12Hayden Panettierre

Hayden is such a cutie butt, I don’t know what she was thinking here.  The hair is unflattering and it’s all downhill from there.

Kaley Cuoco

Kaley Cuoco

Kaley looks like she just came from an all night rave at Cyndi Lauper’s house.  That is all.

    Taylor Swift, Cate Blanchett and Juliana Margulies were my best dressed pics. Sofia Vergara was an honorable mention. I loved the dress she picked, probably because it wasn’t her normal body hugging, had to sew it on number (aka, the same crap J-Lo wears all the time).

    I WANT Sandra Bullock’s dress. I know lots of people hated it, but I would frolic in it. Plus, it has pockets.

    I know I’m going to butcher the spelling, and I’m not about to look it up, but I really liked Juianna Margules’ dress. And another one that a lot of people didn’t like that I really loved was Taylor Schilling’s green dress. I wasn’t overwhelmed with Jennifer Lawrence. I felt like she’s done the strapless/fluffy bottom thing a number of times. It wasn’t surprising at all.

    Margot Robbie (from Wolf of Wall Street)… Loved how the green shoes brought out the green in the dress. She is one to watch!
