The 2011 Golden Globe's Best and Worst Dressed - Who Had Style? Who Was Vile?

Updated on February 9, 2011

Which Looks We Loved - And Loved To Hate

This year, at the 2011 Golden Globes, some celebrity stylists were on the ball - and some should be on a bus back to design school.

The top in the style category was absolutely Jennifer Lopez. Her look proved that J. Lo is a star with a capital STAR. She was an absolute vision in white, wearing a draped, spaghetti-strapped gown that beautifully showed off her dreamy mocha skin and her voluptuous curves - without making her look like a porn star. Revealing only a hint of cleavage, the dress fit Lopez perfectly. What made her outfit, though, was the top piece worn over the dress. Made of see-through white mesh with graduated sparkles, it managed to do everything it was supposed to - accentuate J. Lo's knockout body and the dress without detracting from either. She wore the dress; the dress didn't wear (or overpower) her. 

Lopez's accessories were also perfect! She wore sparkly shoes and earrings that fit the mood of the dress and the occasion and were just the right size. The best accessory was a small, smartly square matching evening bag. It said what the rest of J. Lo's look said: I'm gorgeous, I'm in control, and I understand fashion. All in all, what these accessories did is - amazingly, finally - what accessories are supposed to do - enhance the look, not overpower it. 

J.Lo, on behalf of fashion-watchers everywhere, all I can say is: well done. 

As for vile, Julianne Moore's look definitely took the prize. It can be summed up in three words: Girl, girl, girl! What were you thinking?! Okay, that was seven words. But not lucky seven. There was certainly nothing lucky about this outfit: a fuchsia piece of satiny material that was tortured into a sensory insult of a dress. 

The biggest affront was the left sleeve, which was inexplicably poofed out from the shoulder to the elbow, leaving Moore's entire right arm bare. This asymmetrical look was a-fashionable. And not grade-A, either. 

One of the things we love to idolize about celebrities is their illusion of perfection. Well, thanks a lot, Julianne, for ruining that one by having the nerve to parade down the red carpet with creases in your dress! I don't mean a tiny crease. I mean from stomach to mid-thigh, I-just-got-out-of-the-car-and-don't-have-a-steamer creases. They almost looked as though they were part of the dress. I expect that from myself; I do not expect that from a major star. 

Almost beside the point, but still annoying, were Moore's accessories. The gold necklace and purse would have been fine with a brown- or gold-toned look, but they simply didn't match this hot pink mess, er, dress. The purse further offended with its giant, curtain-like tassel. 

At least if Moore's outfit would have shown off her lovely figure and face, it would have had some redeeming value; but alas, this was not the case. It just hung there, the poor excuse for a belt failing to give Julianne any shape at all. For all its pathetic attempt at flash, this outfit served to make this stunning beauty look...dowdy. For shame. 

If everyone were the same, the world would be boring - and if every star dressed consistently, there would be no fun post-award-show conversations. This year was certainly no exception, and for that, Lopez and Moore, we thank you.
