I have to tell you, it’s pretty hard to be snarky about Golden Globe fashion when everyone is looking so fabulous wearing black and standing in unity against sexual harassment.
Also, for like five minutes there was a chance that I was going to be a seat filler at last night’s awards. Okay, so it was a slim chance, but I had an in (or thought I did) and I was working it. So instead of blogging about the red carpet, I would have been living it. (Well, from the sidelines.) But that is a story for another time.
Plus, yesterday was Chandler’s 21st birthday. So instead of sitting on the couch with my laptop snarkily typing away, we were busy getting messy at the local peel and eat crab restaurant. (Side note: I was really looking forward to buying Chandler is “first drink,” but the restaurant only serves wine and beer, neither of which he likes (not that he knows that since he just turned 21 yesterday), so I didn’t get to do that, but he loved the food and it was fun and funny eating everything with our hands, and he told me it was the best restaurant we could have gone to, so I’ll call that a win.)
So, what I’m trying to say is, this year’s post may not be very snarky. It seems kind of wrong with all the love and unity that was going on last night. But Marley and I did try our best. (Plus, she’s a teenager, so it kind of comes naturally.)
When it comes to bad fashion, Nicole Kidman rarely disappoints (Marley: Nicole Kidman always wears an ugly dress) and I’d like to say last night was no exception, but this dress isn’t so bad. I don’t like the like the wingy sleeve things, but other than that this is a pretty dress and a big improvement over what she usually wears.
Marley: Yikes! It looks like she’s repping Target.
Me: Um.. I like the bottom.
A lot of women chose to wear pants last night as symbolism for taking back their power. I loved that message and most of the looks, but Debra Messing’s part dress/part pants ensemble is a no for me. Also, she needs to fire her makeup artist. That green eye shadow she was sporting is a big no. (I love you, Debra, so sorry, but, NO!)
Marley: It looks like the lamp from A Christmas Story.
Marley: I like the dress, but why is she there? You know what it looks like? One of those princess cakes – where the dress is the cake.
I’m with Marley. Why is she there? Plus, the dress is a little much for me.
Yes, yes, yes! I love her dress, her boots, everything. I think she looks fabulous.
Marley: I love Kerry Washington, but she looks like a sparkly trash bag.
Marley is wrong.
Like I said, it was kind of a struggle to find bad dresses last night. Even the bad dresses weren’t terrible. Plus. Love. Unity. Girl Power. All that stuff. So here are some women (and men – you’re welcome) who I think looked particularly fabulous last night.
I think the part dress/part pants look really looked for Laurie. I think she looks fabulous.
Reece always makes my best dressed list and this year is no exception. She looks classy and gorgeous as always.
The front of Dakota Johnson’s dress was subtle and pretty, but the back of her dress – wow! I love it! It’s gorgeous.
Marley: It’s simple, it’s pretty, the red band is a nice pop of color. There’s nothing special about it, but there’s also nothing wrong with it. It’s a nice dress.
I think Marley is wrong. This dress is stunning.
I absolutely love this dress and Laura Dern looks hot!
I love her dress and she might win for most beautiful woman on the planet.
I love him. You’re welcome.
Swoon. And again. You’re welcome.
So that’s it. My not-so-snarky red carpet review. Did you watch the Golden Globes? What did you think of fashion? Let me know what I missed.

You had me at Chris Hemsworth.
You’re so right! Such a night of positivity, change and powerful women. Loved all the black, because black is the new black.
You & Marley crack me up – the lamp from A Christmas Story! So true, even with her most perfect cleavage.
One note: I could have sworn that Kirk Douglas died about a month or so ago – I read that headline! Guess not – super weird to see him last night, since I thought he’d died. Spartacus!
Kidman is amazing, classic, and deserved the Globe for her role in Big Little Lies.
I was Thrilled about her win.
….but the HIGHLIGHT was OPRAH Winfrey.
I could listen to her all day long.
PS. I was VERY uncomfortable when Kirk, one of my all time fave. movie stars, spoke. It just breaks my heart when people grow old. Spartacus is my number 1 movie since a young girl.
Great job, as always, C. xxx
I admire your attempt to be consistent but you’re right, it’s hard to hate when there’s so much love. I missed it too but I saw Oprah’s speech and now that I’ve read your assessments, I feel complete. Happy birthday to Chandler!
Why is she there? That’s my reaction whenever it comes to a Kardashian/Jenner. They confuse me. Agree otherwise there was a lot to love!
