Hollywood’s best and brightest were on display for the 2014 Golden Globes. And by bright, we mean it! The red carpet revealed glitzy metallic gowns, as well as bright, solid colors perfect for the coming spring. However, as always, some of these stars dazzled, while others may soon be firing their stylist.
Here are our picks for the best and worst dressed of the 2014 Golden Globes:
Lupita Nyong’o: Her movie, 12 Years a Slave, nabbed the Golden Globe for Best Dramatic Film, but she won the award for best dressed even before the show started. The bold color looks great on her, and the cape feature adds trendsetting style.
Kerry Washington: That baby bump looks great in Balenciaga. The top portion of the dress cuts a flattering figure, and elevates the entire ensemble into one of fashionable elegance.
Margot Robbie: The Wolf of Wall Street femme fatale blew us away in Gucci. She looked flawless from head to toe; the dress creating a classic silhouette enhanced by emerald-colored gems.
Kate Beckinsale: This is how you wear metallic colors! Kate looked every inch a star in this glittery Zuhair Murad gown. The sweetheart neckline is perfect on her frame, and the pattern is eye-catching, even through all the shine.
Reese Witherspoon: The Calvin Klein dress, though simple, fits Reese’s stunning hourglass shape like a glove. The bright color is youthful and on-trend this season.
Emilia Clarke: She shined bright in a Proenza Schouler gown. Both the print and the asymmetrical skirt were fabulous.
Drew Barrymore: She should have taken a cue from Kerry Washington and flaunted that baby bump in style. Instead, this Monique Lhuiller gown reminds us of our grandmother’s wallpaper.
Julia Roberts: When did Julia Roberts decide to change career paths and become an English school mistress? Her biggest mistake here is the blouse portion of the dress. Without it, the dress would have looked plain, but elegant.
Zoe Saldana: This dress looks like it was sewn together with the castoff scraps of other gowns, and not pretty ones either. It’s just all over the place, and the flower appliques definitely do not help!
Julie Bowen: We had to recoil at this dress at first glance because the combination of purple and red was harsh on our eyes. It gets worse the more you look at it: the velvet and sateen combo, the puffy sleeves…take your pick!
Lizzy Caplan: If she wanted to go for a fashion-forward look, she fell short. The almost futuristic shoulders and sleeves just end up making this dress look strange and unflattering.
Paula Patton: The ruffles looked as though they could topple her over. Her figure looked swamped and lost within the fabric waves.
