Golden Globes 2009- Best Fashion on the Red Carpet

Oh wow, most of my Golden Globes Red Carpet predictions came true!!!
The biggest trends on the Red Carpet were: Mermaid and tiered skirts gowns with a strapless or one shoulder bodice, gold and colored stones jewelry, subdued makeup and hair-with an increasing number of red lips throughout the night- Metallic clutches and a lot of bold jewelry.
However I did not foresee the sea of black and beige gowns!!! Talk about lack of imagination...with all the fantastic choices from the Spring/Summer 2009 Collections, most celebrities chose to play it safe!

Here is a summary of my favourite from the Golden Globes Red Carpet, the rest of the pictures can be found in the fashion community (Events Gallery)- I will post my least favourite Red Carpet fashion in another article.

Best Dressed

Holy moly...Colin Farrell was smoking hot...I'm not only talking about his win at the Golden Globes, but also about his fashion!!! He looked polished and so red carpet worthy; he punched up the classic tux look with a touch of color in his vest...Two thumbs up Colin!

What a better way to style up a classy tuxedo than with a bit of Satin? Very stylish choice from Tom Cruise who looked impeccable and timeless (as usual!).

I'm not a big Tina Fey fan on the red carpet, and even though she played safe with black, she looked very glamorous in this halter top gown with a drop neckline.

This is how you do stripes on the Red Carpet! Wow, Viola Davis' brown illusion-dress fits her like a glove and she looked amazing!!!

The White J. Mendel gown was an excellent choice for Kate Beckinsale...she looks so glamorous with her ruffled top which was a nice contrast with the severely pulled back hair. The blue tone jewelry was a great contrast.

One of the most beautiful women on the planet (in my opinion), did not come short to wow the croud a the Golden Globes. Megan Fox looked stunning in this simple gold dress with sheer embroidered overlay and emerald green jewelry and clutch. The 22 inch-waist celebrity looked gorgeous!

If you must do black on the red carpet, this is how you should do it! Very elegant lines, effortless makeup and sophisticated hair. Kate Winslet stole the show (and a Golden Globe) in this black strapless Yves Saint Laurent dress.

I love this orange color on Madeline Zima, and the goddess style gown makes her look like..well, a goddess!

So soft, pretty and youthful, Demi Moore never ceases to amaze me! Her daughter Rumor is old enough to be Miss Golden Globe, yet she looks like a 30 year old. The pale pink gown is gorgeous on her skin tone and hair color.

Beautiful Christina Applegate looked so adorable in pale yellow and red lips. I wish she would have turned it up a notch with some colored gems or a colored clutch, nevertheless she still looks amazing.

Who in the world did her hair??? They should be shot!!! How can you possibly make a beautiful woman like Drew Barrymore in a jaw-dropping Dior by John Galliano grey chiffon gown with the most perfect accessories, look like a prom queen?? The hair ruins it for me, but the rest is so amazing!

At first glance I did not recognize the stunning girl in the purple dress...then I realized it was Rumor Willis, also Miss Golden Globes 2009! Wow, the red hair looks so much better on her than the severe black color she had. The gown is amazing and I love the jeweled belt!

"House" Jennifer Morrison is amazing in the electric blue Oscar de la Renta strapless gown, but most of all I love the Lorraine Schwartz jewels and her perfect size clutch.

Oh America Ferrera, how amazing! I love the girl fashion choices, they work so perfectly for her body. The grey color is fantastic on her skin, the one shoulder strap gown makes it sexy, the metallic accent keeps it interesting and the cropped lenght makes the gown really age appropriate and fresh...what is there not to love?? One thing I would add, a colorful clutch ( a deep red, or ice blue).
Other celebrities worth to mention: Eva Longoria Parker, Kristin Scott Thomas, Eva Mendes, Laura Linney and Mary-Louise Parker...check their photos on my Fashion Community Gallery.
Be Fabulous,

Personal beauty, fashion trends, style, glamour like celebrities.
