The style winner and award winner for this award season is Jennifer Lawrence- no contest!!! She is absolutely stunning in this Christian Dior couture ball gown. The strapless neckline accentuates her incredibly thin frame and the backwards diamond necklace adds that young touch! She totally owned the night!

Favorite actress & person+favorite color+ favorite actor= PERFECTION! I love Jennifer Garner- she has such a naturally glowing face and has the perfect smile. She looks incredible in this purple Gucci gown. And I am obsessed with her Neil Lane necklace- unbelievable is an understatement!! And with Ben Affleck as her escort, it is the perfect look!

Naomi Watts was absolutely stunning in this embellished grey Armani prive gown. The neckline, embroidery, hairstyle were all incredible. It was something different on the red carpet, and definitely made an impression!

Jessica Chastain was a hot favorite of all fashion websites in this metallic Armani Prive number- I love the dress but I am not a fan of her hair style. It was far too tame and stuck to her scalp. I would have loved this look if she did something more stylish with her hairstyle!

Kerry Washington looked incredible in this beaded coral Miu Miu gown. The beading and color were stunning, I only wish she did something better with her hair, but awesome look overall!

Amanda Seyfried looked incredible in this Alexander McQueen gown- it was a fantastic pick for her, I absolutely loved the embroidery.

Best supporting actress nominee Amy Adams looked like a movie star in this powder blue Oscar de la Renta gown. Her hair and make up was flawless and she let the dress be the star with minimal jewelry.

Other popular looks of the night

Sandra Bullock looked great in this embroidered black Elie Saab dress. She does look stylish but the gown looks really familiar. I feel like I have seen it before on the red carpet. And it is also a very standard look for Sandra Bullock, no surprise…

Catherine Zeta Jones looked fine in this Zuhaid Murad dress, but it is her face that brought the look down. For a Hollywood star, her makeup looks like it has been done by an amateur.

Jennifer Aniston wore a red Valentino gown to the Oscars. She looked great in the gown, but it is her standard look at all awards- California casual hair, tanned face and a solid gown. It was far too typical a look! And I don’t know if you will agree- but I think she went overboard on fillers and botox- her face looks puffy and plastic!

Reese Witherspoon looked pretty in this blue Louis Vuitton dress. The fashionistas love this dress, but I am totally not a fan- I really don’t like the bust style. It isn’t flattering even if you are a size A. But her face and hair are totally movie star quality!

Halle Berry looks like a futuristic robot in this Versace gown. Normally a fashionista, she doesn’t score any points with this strange look.

Golden Globes 2013- The Best and Worst Looks

Happy New Year (a bit belated) and welcome to 2013! I was on a hiatus from blogging, but I am back. And this post is just for Aishwarya, who asked me when I am writing about the Golden Globes fashion.

So let’s get started, first with the looks I loved, then move on to the ones that were absolutely awful!

Best dressed at Golden Globes:

One of my favorite people to watch on the red carpet- Emily Blunt didn’t disappoint and stunned in this gorgeous golden gown by Michael Kors. One word- Beautiful!

Another staple in all my fashion posts-Sofia Vergara wows in this black strapless gown by Michael Cinco. I love her red carpet looks- she always dresses perfectly for her body type.

Sticking with the strapless theme, I loved Jennifer Garner in this Dior Haute Couture gown. Such a fantastic color, and it really makes her look radiant! I am also loving the earrings and bracelets– all in all, perfect look!

Best Supporting Actress Winner Anne Hathaway looks sophisticated and elegant in this white Chanel number.

Sticking with the red theme, which was a popular color on the carpet, Best Actress in TV drama winner Claire Danes stunned in this Versace gown. Can you believe she had a baby only a month ago!! Insane!!

The worst looks at Golden Globes:

OK starting with the look I was most disappointed with- during the Oscars 2012, Jessica Chastain was my best dressed. And given she is a strong contender to win, I expected her to bring her A game. This pale blue Calvin Klien gown looked absolutely ridiculous- it was a wonder how she didn’t have a wardrobe malfunction. But her hairstyle just pushed it to worst dress territory-slick hair back never works! Total disappointing!

The usually stunning Lucy Liu disappoints in this light blue Caroline Herrera gown. The design and prints look more suited to be drapes or tablecloth rather than a red carpet gown.

Maybe its my personal bias, but I have never been a fan of the sheer arms and leg and solid middle trend. Rachel Weisz looks a bit drab in this black polka dot Louis Vuitton dress.

The usually stunning Halle Berry looked out of place in this Versace gown, which seems more suited for the beach rather than a red carpet! The prints and colors are dull and the ridiculous ‘Angelina Jolie’ leg trend is the final nail in the coffin. Halle, I expected more!

And keeping with the ridiculous ‘Angelina Jolie’ leg trend, another red carpet hottie that I love to watch- Eva Longoria- disappointed in this black Emilio Pucci gown. The neckline, the leg and back- it was all a bit too much!
