The Golden Globes did not go so well for me this year. In fact as I write this (while the staff at the Beverly Hilton are cleaning up the ballroom and the stars are party-hopping) I have not yet seen the awards show.
I started to watch the red carpet on E! and NBC – switching back and forth between the two while furiously taking notes, but then I got hijacked. Chandler has been struggling with a college essay all weekend and has asked me for some help editing. Apparently getting into a good school trumps Golden Globe snarkiness. (Whatever.) So I’ve been forced to set my DVR, turn off the TV, so I can help my son get into the college of his dreams so he can move out of my house and leave me forever. Ahh… motherhood.
But who needs TV when we have the internet? (That’s why you’re here, isn’t it?) I’ve done my red carpet research (between editing essay drafts) and I think I’ve got a pretty good list of what worked and what most certainly didn’t.
May I present my 2015 Golden Globe Red Carpet Review…
Let’s just get right down to it and start with the best, shall we? Selma Hayek is the most beautiful woman in the world. Period. The dress is simple and elegant. Her hair is soft and gorgeous, her make-up is subtle and the accessories are spot-on. Love the belt. Love the bow in her side-swept hair. Perfection.
As opposed to Kate Mara -who admittedly maybe I’m just really pissed off at for disclosing a very huge House of Cards spoiler while on the red carpet with Kevin Spacey. (Well, it’s a huge spoiler if you’re currently binge watching season one, like some people!) But, Kate? That belt? NO! That belt would be fine with jean, but that pretty red dress you’re wearing, I will repeat, no, no, no, No, NO!
I like Allison Williams red dress, but I don’t like her hair one bit. It’s like she can’t decide if she want to wear is soft or pull it back tight. (And you can’t see it in this photo, but her side part was too wide and horrific.)
And speaking of bad hair… Julianna Margulies – WTF? And that dress? I’m just not sure. It’s pretty, but reminds me a bit of a Christmas table cloth. I like the top part of it a lot, but that wide hem at the bottom is just weird. It’s not hideous, but it’s not gorgeous either.
Ladies, this is how it’s done. Gorgeous dress. Simple hair and make-up. Boom!
And speaking of how it’s done – Matt Bomer makes me say, “Bradley who?”
Kit Harington, ditto!
But Clive Owen? I wouldn’t kick you out of bed for eating crackers, but you’d definitely have to take off that jacket (and those shiny pants) before I let you in. (Velvet, really?)
Kate Beckinsale gives the most beautiful woman in the world, Selma Hayek a run for her money. Love, love, love everything about this. Stunning!
These women have obviously made a deal with the devil. Jane Fonda is 77 years only and Lily Tomlin is 75. I am not a fan of Jane’s dress and Lily (who is dressed wonderfully aged appropriately) needs to stand up straight, but there is no denying these women look fantastic!
Speaking of making a deal with the devil, Jennifer Lopez is 45 years old, people! 45!!! The thing is, she really needs to start dressing like it. I mean, don’t get me wrong, she looks incredible. But the dress? I think it’s a bit much. I mean just because she can wear it, doesn’t necessarily mean she should wear it.
And while we’re talking about things that shouldn’t be worn. Rosamund Pike? That dress? Uh, nope.com! It looks like it’s about to fall off. And in a very uncomfortable way. It is not sexy, it’s just weird.
And speaking of weird, I never thought I’d say this, but I actually thought Lena Dunham looked lovely in her red Zac Posen dress.
It pains me to say this because I love and adore Maggie Gyllenhaal and could actually picture her as the lead in the movie version (that is sure to be made) of my book (that will certainly one day be published), but her dress looks like something from the discount bin at David’s Bridal that she hemmed herself five minutes before her limo arrived. And she need a necklace.
And while we’re talking about people I love and adore who missed the mark. Melissa McCarthy? The bottom of your dress? A+ That bowtie and stupid blousy part at the top? F-!
But I think Keira Knightly definitely takes the Golden Globe for Worst Dress of The Night. (What the hell IS that? A butterfly exhibit?!)
And Golden Globe for the Worst Tuxedo? What the What, Bill Murray!
But let’s end this on a high note, shall we? Jenna Dewan-Tatum, you look elegantly stunning.
What did you think of the 2015 Golden Globe Red Carpet looks? Who did I miss? Or do you think I missed the mark? I’d love to hear your comments below.

I can’t get over how many women wore red. Is that typical? To have ONE COLOR dominate so many of the gowns, both good and bad?
Sorry about the Kate Mara spoiler, but if it’s what I think it is….that happened a while ago.
I will come help you binge watch so you can catch up!
For some reason, I am obsessed with what the celebs where on the red carpet. I don’t understand it. I think everyone (except Rosamund Pike, I’m with you on the weirdness of that getup) looked lovely, but Jennifer Lopez needs to get over herself and dress like a grown up. She wore that dress in green when I was in high school, for God’s sake!!
You will laugh when you finally watch the show – Jeremy Renner wins for what he says to JLo. Love your writeup. I never care what they are wearing until I read your post.
I agree w/ everything you said here.
Selma Hayek is pure perfection. LOVE!
Jenna Dewan-Tatum looks FABULOUS in lemon yellow (who is she??
And Julianna Margulies, whom I adore, looks OLD in that hairdo or whited is! WHAT?
OH, Lopez is STUNNING, I agree, but she needs to Class up.
Great job, Charlene.
My fave. part was Kevin Spacey’s speech, I believe. xxx
