COTE DE TEXAS: BEST & WORST AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES 2018

BEST & WORST AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES 2018


The 2018 awards season started Sunday with the Golden Globes and it will end in a few months with the Oscars.  As I’m sure you know, this year everyone agreed to dress in black for solidarity with the “Me Too” and the new “Time’s Up” movements, both very worthy causes.

Everyone one wore black – women, men, even all the TV reporters.  Everyone, that is, except for this one thirsty actress:


Obviously Blanca Blanco, a basically unknown actress, used the event to draw attention to herself.   It’s not the first time she has caused a stir on the red carpet.  Once, her dress was so revealing, everyone got long looks at her privates.  I say long, because it wasn’t a mistake or just a slip, it was intentional.

I’m not surprised Blanco would be the one to not wear black.

There were two others who also didn’t wear black – but both were not Americans.


Even though the event was Black Only, there were still some beautiful looks.  I had thought it was going to be a boring night for fashion, but instead, it was exciting to see how these stars took a strict fashion code and made it their own.

There were a few trends that really stuck out:

“Is it Pants or Is it a Dress?” was seen a few times.




Alison Brie in Vassilis Zoulias was one who wore the trendy pants/dress combo – and Brie’s was one of the prettiest.  

But all I could think of was this disaster:


Demi Moore in 1989 wore this outfit to the Oscars.  It remains as one of the “Worst” dresses ever worn to the Oscars.  Demi started the “Is it Pants or Is it a Dress?” look – it just took almost 30 years for the trend to take off.  




But don’t feel sorry for Demi.  In 2010 she completely vindicated herself when she wore this Versace to the Oscars.  Gorgeous.  Such a beautiful dress!!  And only Demi would look younger and prettier 20 years later!!


Besides the “Is it Pants or Is it a Dress?” trend, “Different Sleeves” was another trend.



Saoirse Ronan in a Different Sleeves dress by Versace.  Her right shoulder looked like a sock wrapped in aluminum foil.  This is on my Worst Dressed Look.  I’m afraid Saoirse needs a new stylist.  STAT.

I do love her bracelet though!


Kelly Clarkson had the same Different Sleeves weirdness going on.   I hate to be so negative, but on High-Definition TV,  her dress looked very cheap though I’m sure someone paid a fortune for it.   Designed by Christian Siriano, the young reality star, this wasn’t his only worst dressed look of the night.

 

Debra Messing wore the “Is it Pants or Is it a Dress” trend, also by Christian Siriano.  Her dress/pants looked cheaply constructed just as Kelly’s did.  I’m sorry, but this is just beyond awful.  I could have designed a better looking pants/dress combo than this!   The area around her lower stomach/crotch area is so unflattering.

Sadly, Siriano wasn’t through with his magic for the night.


America Ferrera is also in Christian Siriano.  She’s pregnant but that’s not why the coat has such strange lines – that’s Siriano’s fault. And it looks like he used the same material from Messing’s dress as for America’s. 

He still wasn’t through for the night.

You would think he was Giorgio Armani judging by the number of woman who chose to wear Christian Siriano last night. 


And here we have Christina Hendricks in yet another Christian Siriano frock, this one features two trends of the night – the different sleeves look and the “Is it Pants or Is it a Dress” look.

Siriano is playing in the big leagues but I’m not sure he is deserving or up to it.  It will be interesting to see if he does any Oscar dresses.

Moving on from Christian Siriano.


One way that designers individualized the Black Only rule was to add another color, usually white.


Alexis Bledel looked beautiful in Oscar de la Renta.  I loved her belt/sash with sequins -  belts were another trend last night.   Winner!


Allison Janney wore Mario Dice and she looked the prettiest I’ve ever seen her!  Her butterfly dress was wonderful.


Beautiful couple alert:  Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers.  I like how she brightened up her black velvet dress with a blue silk sash.



Samira Wiley would have been on the Best Dressed list if that orange thing wasn’t attached to it.  It looked like a necklace was just pasted onto her chest.  What a shame, because her hair and makeup were perfect and the lines on the dress by Romona Keveza looked great on her.



One of my Best Dressed is Penelope Cruz.  She was gorgeous in Ralph and Russo.  Stunning perfection!



It was Kendall Jenner’s first time at the Golden Globes and she made quite an appearance!  In Giambattista Valli – her dress was a bit extravagant for the Golden Globes and would probably be better suited for the Oscars, but wow!!!  I love Kendall, she is such a sweet girl.  I love her shoes too.  Just beautiful!





Now for the opposite side of the coin!   I really liked this more dressed down look for Elisabeth Moss by Oscar de la Renta.   The simple Peter Pan collar was her only jewelry.   She doesn’t have a model’s figure and this dress was perfect for her.  It has to be so hard in Hollywood to be an average weight instead of weighing just 98 pounds.    I thought Elisabeth looked adorable in this dress.




Margot Robbie wore Gucci.   The dress doesn’t look as pretty in photographs as it did on High Definition TV.  I gasped when she walked up – her dress looked stunning.  She has such an incredible smile – her entire face lights up!


Mary J Blige wore the different sleeves trend but she did it right – dress by Alberta Ferretti.  Her dress is so beautiful and she looked wonderful – the prettiest that I can remember.


 

Catherine Zeta Jones looks more like Scarlett O’Hara every day.  She was a knockout in her Hollywood glamour dress by Zuhair Murad.  She’s a stunner.   Her appearance with her father-in-law Kirk Douglas was the most moving part of the night.





Another trend was jeweled belts and Dakota Johnson wore one by Gucci.  From the front her dress was simple – but from the back, it was wow.  I do think it would have looked better without the straps.


Zuri Hall wore a dress with circles – which is a trendy interior design element for 2018.   I thought she looked beautiful!!





This one is very hard for me.   Sob!!!    My favorite,  Outlander star Caitriona Balfe wore Chanel.  I didn’t like the dress – I hated the arm bands.  I hated everything about the dress.   She needs a new stylist.  There, I said it.   Caitriona is a gorgeous woman and she tends to wear mostly fashion-forward dresses but her choices always just miss.  I blame that on her stylist.   She could, and should, be outstanding every time she’s on the red carpet – she’s that pretty.




Someone who rarely ever misses on the red carpet is Nicole Kidman, here in Givenchy.  Her long time stylist is Julia von Boehm and I wish Caitriona would hire her!


Here are my Best Dressed of the Golden Globe winners:


Sarah Jessica Parker wore a 50s Princess styled dress by Dolce and Gabbana.  With the trendy jeweled belt, she looked adorable.  I loved the styling!  Her hair was perfect.  The shoes were pretty.  Loved her look.



 

Diane Kruger in Prada.  Fabulous.  The only issue was someone tripped over her train as she was making her way up to the microphone!!   Her sheer cape with silver trim was so pretty as was the way the fabric was gathered on the bodice.


Kate Hudson was in Valentino and I think she was my all time favorite.  Her hair,  the plunging neckline with the perfect necklace -  she was the chic standout of the night.   Her stylist is another one that always gets it right – Sophia Lopez.  Kate never misses on the Red Carpet.


My worst of the night?


I hated the dress that Angelina Jolie wore!  Those huge feather sleeves – how did she eat dinner????  She looked like a goth cheerleader with black pom-poms.   Just terrible.  Terrible.   She needed some face powder too.

 

 


Her dress made me miss this look – where Angelina walked the red carpet pushing out her right leg the entire time. 



The oddest look of the night?


Jamie Chung wins the “huh?” award for wearing two different shoes!!   Really?  It’s a shame too because her dress was very pretty.  What can I say?  This is just ridiculous.    Unfortunately it wasn’t mistake.  This IS a pair of shoes – by Sophia Webster.  And Jamie was getting praise for this mismatched pair.  Seriously…..





The BEST of the night?  Oprah Winfrey!  She looked gorgeous – age has treated this woman well – she is prettier now than when she was younger.   Loved her glasses and earrings and dress!!  But it was her speech that slayed me.  All I could think of was Oprah in 2020!!!  I have her running mate in mind too – but I can’t tell you, I try to keep politics out of the blog.  LOL.  OMG – if Oprah ran for President, she would get so many votes she would break the electoral college.  Run Oprah Run!!!!!! 




Who cares about Hollywood when you have this real life Princess????  Monday was Princess Charlotte’s first day at preschool and she looked so adorable!!!




Charlotte was all bundled up in her maroon coat and Mary Janes with gray tights – we couldn’t see her uniform.  Maybe another day? 


The actual coat Charlotte wore isn’t available in the states, but I found this cute one at J Crew – it comes in different colors too.  HERE



Amazon has the cutest Mary Janes that you can usually, only find in England.

HERE  or search Amazon, Mary Janes!


NOW all I need is a Charlotte of my own!!!!!

  1. I love Penelope Cruz's look. I thought Meryl Streep looked great, too. And of course Oprah. Although I don't like the extreme push-up decolletage. It seems to contradict the idea of #MeToo--too overtly sexy. The same dress without the push-up would have been better. On the one hand, I think women should wear what they want, but on the other hand, if things were equal, we'd have guys making an effort to be sexy with bare chests, which they don't do. Though if they did, we wouldn't look away. ;)

    1. Extreme décolletage like that is created when you are wearing a control garment that squeezes your waist very tightly to make it small and then everything goes where it can, namely up over the top, creating spillage there, and then downward also, where the hips get a boost.

  2. Oprah's speech was amazing and inspirational -however - don't hate me.....do we really need another media celebrity as president? It's not working currently (not to compare the 2 but you know what I mean). We need someone who really understands government and politics -a PROFESSIONAL. not a celebrity. Sorry to get political but the Oprah for president stuff is driving me crazy!!
    So many lovely looks and I always think black is the most flattering color. Sarah Jessica Parker's hair and outfit were cute but I didn't feel age appropriate? Too cutesy? She's a beautiful woman..I think she can do better!

  3. I find Kate Hudson's dress to be extremely tacky; I don't care if it is Valentino. These dresses that have no lining all the way up to the underwear are cheesy, and I feel the same about the nude lining, or lack thereof, on the top. Oh, and the whole way the cleavage is done. It's pretty much a cheap-looking mess all the way around.
    Maybe she had it on backwards.

    3. Linda I agree. He is probably one of the oldest actors who received a GG or an Oscar. Should we not see him because he is old? Folks, this is what old age looks like. If you are lucky enough to be in your 90s and not have had a stroke, you are very, very lucky.

    5. Hi. I'm Anon 2:50. I felt embarrassed or some sort of feeling I had for him. It felt funny inside to me when it was happening but it's probably just my own problem and I'm sure now that I reconsider that he must of been okay with it.

    6. It was sad to see Kirk Douglas in the twilight of his life. He had a massive stroke and it's just sad to see. But you have to hand it to him - he looked proud and he loves his daughter in law - and I'm sure he had a wonderful time. It was a very moving segment of the night. I also had this thought watching him - looks are fleeting and so is youth.

    8. I love old people. They are so full of pep and have so much to tell us about their experiences even where i don't agree with their opinions.

      For that reason, i had no problem with Kirk Douglas being wheeled out.

      However, Kirk Douglas has a history in hollywood that would run him out of town today. Google what he did to Natalie Wood. Google his behaviour in his heyday. i don't care for his being lauded as a grande homme of Hollywood. His time is UP like all the other sexual miscreants in hollywood.

    1. Is your point that girls who are raped while wearing shorts or a bathing suit were asking for it?

      Delete
    2. No, it's not that tired old argument. We all know that whatever you wear shouldn't get you raped.
      It's just the idea, to me anyway, that if you are at a ceremony that is supposed to elevate women, and the treatment of them, why not dress in a dignified, more respectable manner, at least for this occasion without all your flesh either hanging out or showing through unlined lace up to your crotch. Half of these dresses look like beach cover ups, but they're not at the beach. Dressing in your honeymoon negligee and them asking for non-sexual treatment is just absurd. Have some dignity about yourself.

    3. Anonymous Jan 9 at 3:46 PM said: "Dressing in your honeymoon negligee and them asking for non-sexual treatment is just absurd. Have some dignity about yourself." But before you had said, "We all know that whatever you wear shouldn't get you raped." Respectfully, perhaps you were writing in haste for this is a good example of a contradiction in terms. Please, be advised that rape is not about sex. It is V-I-O-L-E-N-C-E. It is all about power and control. In case of rape, the weapon to violate, to aggress, to injure and control is the sexual act (in many forms).

    4. Leticia,
      Please read it again. No, your clothing shouldn't get you raped. But why not carry yourself in a decently dressed, respectful manner when trying to get a point across ABOUT respect. Everyone didn't get raped; some just got looked at cross eyed and then a gamut of things in between. If your mammaries are completely exposed and your crotch has a inch string of cloth straining against it with some lace billowing in the wind, and you don't think some men aren't going to get some ideas, well, then you just don't know how biology works. COVER YOURSELVES UP A BIT WOMEN. Have some self respect. Stop trying so hard to advertise the goods that you are screaming so hard about defending.

      Delete
    5. I am sorry, but your discourse keeps saying the same thing. "... then you just don't know how biology works." --- I am going to make myself not bee speechless with this one. It does not matter how the woman is dressed or what her profession is. A prostitute needs to give consent or it is rape even when she is strutting down the street half naked. As for "how biology works.." there is such a thing called restrain, self-regulation, controlling impulses and knowing when not doing so is a crime. I dress conservatively because this is just me. I pass no judgement on how others dress and it is none of my business. It is your right to disagree with me.

    6. Letty,
      You're not ever going to see my point, it looks like, of how I think women should maybe not be exposing all the body parts at a function that is supposed to be about achieving dignity and respect. I still completely believe that it would have been more appropriate, at this one function, to dress more conservatively.(Many did.) What is the goal of putting so very much flesh on display? We'll have to agree to disagree this time, I guess.
      Thanks.

      Delete
    7. Anonymous, You may have a point about the dignity of a ceremony elevating women, but you negate it when you slut-shame them and women as a whole. Human beings are blessed with impulse control, restraint and the will to exercise them. It matters not a jot if a woman walks naked down a street. She should be free not to be attacked. That is a goal we are very close to achieving in the west, but you take us back to the dark ages when you judge on a man-made construct of modesty designed to make us ashamed of our bodies and to fear attack from onlookers.

  8. I rarely watch an entire awards show of any kind and this years show was no exception. I do love watching the pre-show red carpet event to see who is wearing what. I thought Penelope Cruz's dress stole the show and Alison Janney's and Mary J. Blige's dress was a close second.

    Not to get political but Hollywood appropriately wore black because it had 30 years of dirty laundry that had been hidden away by so many in the industry (women and men alike) before someone brave enough to say F___ my career, I wont be treated this way by any person. I am not trying to take away from all the other women who have spoken up but in all fairness its always the first person in the boat who jumps into unforeseen waters who is the true hero not the remaining people on the boat who decide to jump after they see the waters safe.

    Harvey Weinstein was the worst kept secret in Hollywood so its unbelievable someone could get away with what he did for so many years and have that kind of power over people. There are plenty of more Harvey's in every industry and when I began my career in the 70's it was widespread.

    1. You are so right, Teresa. So many knew but until several few girls spoke up, the rest were quiet because they had to wait until they got their Beverly Hills house, and their second home in Malibu, and their apartment in New York, and all their Academy Awards and Golden Globes and big bank accounts. And if several few hadn't spoke up, certain people would still be happy to just keep accumulating real estate and awards.

  9. Honestly, I am so over Hollywood. Exploitation is a real issue, one that requires serious attention and not a couture gown. I would have worn white just to tick them off. Natalie Portman was a shady B as well, putting a damper on what might have been the biggest night of a man's life to make a cheap point. I hope Oprah runs for the Dem nomination, she may be the only one on that side who knows how to balance a budget.

  10. Men wear their same old tuxes, covered neck to toe, to award shows. Often women choose gowns that expose their baby feeders to one degree or another at these functions. Sometimes the dresses are ugly, weird, or tacky. Sometimes they are beautiful. Sometimes the hem is high, or slit up to the nether regions. It's been like this for a long time. Women expose their baby feeders because it is sexy and in fashion and they like the way it looks. It is sexy, as we have been conditioned thusly, therefore it attracts the opposite sex. Well, at least one, or maybe more now, of the many opposite sexes we now have. It is not likely to change soon.
    The academy awards are next month, and this ritual will be repeated.

If anything felt awkward, I think it was his struggling to speak and all of us not knowing what he was saying. I think it would have been appropriate for Catherine to reiterate what he said to the audience. His family has done that before.

    2. You said that you would never vote for Oprah but you would for Margaret Thatcher. I am not often totally confused but there is always a first. How would you go about voting for a dead person in an American election -- even if this person were alive, how would you do it? She was British? the candidate has to be American born. As for your request that the blogger refrain from posting what you call partisan posts, I hope she does not oblige. And I do not think there is a chance that she might for she tends to touch on various subjects as a rule even though, foremost, this is a blog about interior design. Her style of writing and the variety (albeit limited) coupled with reader's comments (some rather hilarious) is what keeps me following Cote de Texas. I have found an efficient way to deal with subjects I don't like in the virtual world. Blogs -- I don't read them. Facebook posts -- I ignore them. E-mail: I delete them. This works beautiful for me and I highly recommend it. One more thing, this allows me to keep friends who do not agree with me on everything, as they shouldn't.

  22. Allison Janney was a knockout, and I've rarely thought of her that way. I would love to wear that dress because it was a standout but also covered up well (so perfect for her age/my age!). Kendall Jenner was pure Hollywood glamour and I'm thrilled that she wore the dress sans necklace so that her hair, dress and long legs could make their appropriate statements. I did not like Kate Hudson's dress; too constructed, too revealing, trying too hard. Thank you for a great post!

  23. I love this post, though I disagree with most every assessment you made, Joni :). I thought the red dress was hideous, but that actress won the night. Wear black all you want, but you knew, and we know you knew, and shame on you for your hypocrisy! Hope that part you got was worth it. And Oprah, really? Harvey Weinstein entanglements aside, I don't think we can stand another snake oil salesperson, unless you think The Secret is going to solve our financial crises and end two wars (and avoid a pending third).

    Aside from Alison Janney, the women were (mostly) dressed way too young for their years (or trying too hard, same thing) which is what makes most of the clothes look cheap. Carrie Bradshaw had more sense.

    I love beautiful clothes and beautiful films, but this ridiculous display of virtue signaling was more insulting and more difficult to stomach than anything either of the campaigns tried to pass off in the last election. Gross, people!!
