it was a big night in hollywood this past sunday.... awards season has officially begun - and the globes kicked it off!
from the witty saracasm, [introducing bruce willis, "and here comes ashton kutcher's dad"], mean-spirited jokes [introducing robert downey jr, "you may know him from such places as the betty ford centre and the california state prison"] and overall hilarious hosting job from ricky gervais; the sensitive moments [chris colfer's best supporting actor win for glee; natalie portman's acceptance speech for best actress in black swan]; even a we're-spying-on-you moment where angelina fixed brad's bowtie; and finally, there was.... the fashion.
my top ten

what was big?
emerald green. vintage inspired. sequins. femininity. blush tones. embellishment.
beading. flowing chiffon. sleek fits. one shoulder straps.
princess cuts. full bangs. ruffles. sparkle.
...and for every gorgeous gown on the red carpet, there are always a few missteps.
halle berry, while i envy your amazing genetics and ability to remain ageless, it looks as though you went out in a comfortable support bra. i am completely okay with the short skirt and sheer, long overlay, however the top just doesn't mesh.january jones is most definitely a style icon: she's always on trend and is willing to take risks. this time however, i think her dress is tasteless and there is far too much skin for a red carpet event. the excessive cleavage, cutouts and fringe skirt spell trashy, not classy.and last but not least, one of the actresses i was most excited to see on the red carpet, michelle williams. how could you let me down so? the girl is always effortlessly adorable, chic and edgy. this dress is all wrong: the color, the print, the floral applique straps, the empire waist, the side flutter, the cut.... i could go on. sadly, the most disappointing of the night.but, what would an awards show be without a few show-stopping couples?
hollywood royalty at its best - brad pitt and angelina joliethe healthy and handsome michael douglas and his stunning welsh wife, catherina zeta jones.and lastly, no awards show is complete without an array of dapper leading men sporting sexy suits.
robert downey jr. - the hilarious, charismatic and sexy presenterchris colfer - the endearing and adorable award-winnerjake gyllenhaal - the handsome and charming nominee
