With the arrival of the new year, the Red Carpet was rolled out to put on display the most and the least tasteful celebrity looks. All hail the Golden Globes! You’ve seen the pictures, you’ve read about the happy winners (and the snubbed), you may have had the time and the information to form your own opinion about the 2016 Golden Globes Red Carpet – did you?
If the answer is yes, I would loooove to hear all about it! If not, below I will tell you about who I liked best and who might’ve done better on the Globes Red Carpet. These are quick notes I snapped while going through the pictures in an intense session of indoor bicycling, so do weigh in, let’s discuss those dresses!
1. Color of the 2016 Golden Globes: blue
Lovely ladies, lovely dresses, however, I think I saw more than two navy blue dresses at the 2016 Golden Globes which made me conclude that this was definitely the color to wear on last night’s Red Carpet! If I were to pick a lucky winner among the blue dresses, it would definitely be Julianne Moore! The reflecting light on her blue sequined Tom Ford dress was very forgiving on her body (which is gorgeous, albeit missing waist definition, so a tube-dress like this one is hard to please, especially when it has no print and no other structural element to refine it).
Kate Winslet looked her stellar self (why do I have the oddest deja-vu feeling about her Ralph Lauren dress?) Jenna Dewan Tatum’s Zuhair Murad gown was flawless, too bad the spotlight was all on her husband, Channing Tatum’s haido! Spotless was also Gina Rodriguez in Zac Posen while Viola Davis was absolutely breathtaking in her sparkling Marchesa dress while Barbara Meier must’ve really liked Cinderella because she was wearing a dress almost identical to the one Lily James wore in the 2015 fairy-tale cinematic interpretation.
2. Hair of the 2016 Golden Globes: side swept faux bob
There are braids, knots, French twists, waves and then some, but tonight’s most daring hairdo was clearly the side swept faux bob! You’ve seen it on Cate Blanchett, on Kate Winslet and partly on Viola Davis (some hints on Kirsten Stewart as well, but nothing like the first two beautiful ladies).

3. Most youthful tasteful 2016 Golden Globes look : Olivia Palermo
The long dresses, the leg slits, the sequins, the laces, the transparency, the bows, the layers, the colors, the fringes, nothing can match Olivia Palermo’s Delpozo dress! Such an unexpectedly fresh approach of the Red Carpet can’t go unnoticed, can it? From the sandals up to the braid, Olivia Palermo was enchanting!
4. Most beautifully dressed at the 2016 Golden Globes: Viola Davis
Can hardly put my finger on what sparkles most: Viola’s personality or her beautiful Marchesa dress! I’m guessing it’s a combination of the two that made Viola Davis an irresistibly stylish appearance at the 2016 Golden Globes! Congrats to her team and to Viola for being so gracefully prepared at this first Red Carpet event of the year!
5. Most complimenting look at the 2016 Golden Globes: Zendaya Coleman
Zendaya Coleman is a splendid young woman and her days as an actress are yet to be proven beyond the Disney channel realm. However, until then, she’s a stunner on the Red Carpet and last night she wore a tiered Marchesa dress. I may be partial to her look, I admit it, I have a soft spot for tiered ruffled dresses, but tell me – isn’t she lovely?
6. Least impressive 2016 Golden Globes appearance: Rachel McAdams
From all the dresses, all the styles and the approaches on this year’s Golden Globes Red Carpet, Rachel McAdams chose a botanical print that could’ve been, should’ve been lovely. Except it wasn’t. The frumpy fabric, the asymmetrical construction, the abstract motif and the shiny texture – there was too much in her Lanvin gown… And I don’t usually bash Alber Elbaz for busy designs, but this one definitely was a tad too far.
7. Least impressive2016 Golden Globes hairdo: Katy Perry
Not quite a beehive, definitely not an updo, suspended somewhere between the sixties and the seventies, Katy Perry is braving the 2016 Golden Globes Red Carpet in a dusty pink dress and a deep brunette up-something-do. The key word was ‘globes’ for Katy Perry – she emphasized that in her cleavage and her hairdo. At least she knew what Pantone’s color of the year was…
8. Least glamorous 2016 Golden Globes shoes: Jason Sudeikis Air Jordans
Being that Jason Sudeikis is a comedian, his shoes could be part of a joke. Black and white, just like his tux and bow tie combo, the Air Jordans were an odd way to finish his 2016 Golden Globes Red Carpet look! At least we all have his charming wife, Olivia Wilde‘s beautiful Kors look to admire!
9. Least complimenting 2016 Golden Globes makeup: Maura Tierney
I’m actually most ambivalent about Maura Tierney’s look: it’s either her makeup or her dress, but something is definitely clashing in her look! I brought this to you because I hope you can help me pinpoint the culprit in Maura’s Golden Globes pale look! (all images getty)
