2018 Golden Globes

Actresses showed their solidarity against sexual harassment and assault in the entertainment industry by wearing black at last night’s Golden Globes. From a fashion perspective, their dresses were among the best I’ve ever seen at an awards event, because…well…black.

My picks for the night:

Jessica Biel

Emmy Awards — 2015

Alas, last night’s awards show was probably the worst-written thing I’ve ever seen. Andy Samberg was positively goofy, and he seemed to elicit more groans than laughs…in my household, anyway.

The fashions didn’t exactly dazzle me either. While there are a few that made it to my good list, I lost count on the bads. These are the ones I liked:

Lady Gaga [There’s more after her. WordPress is into massive spacing today.]

Viola Davis

Gina Rodriguez

Jamie Lee Curtis

Alan Cumming: Because…Alan Cumming!

The ones that missed missed by a mile:

Heidi Klum: aka Big Bird

heidi-klum

 

Joanna Newsom: Every woman should wear a dinner plate on her chest.

Naomi Watts: This dress requires some serious hoiking up.

Naomi Grossman: I can see your belly button, but I’m guessing that’s what you had in mind.

Nazanin Boniadi: Illusion netting at its worst

Padma Lakshmi: Ghastly color and at least one size too small
