This year’s Golden Globes showcased some of the very looks that Vasil predicted to be big this year. Beiges and nudes, blacks and whites, ruffles, oversized accessories and belted silhouettes flooded the red carpet at the star-studded award show, but there were a few looks that really caught our stylist’s eye (for one reason or another)! Without further ado, may I present Vasil’s ten favorite and least favorite 2009 Golden Globe looks:
Ten Favorite Looks

Kate Winslet may claim to “[have] a habit of not winning things,” but not only did she pick up two Golden Globes, she also took first place in our picks for best- dressed. Her sleek Yves St. Laurent gown was elegant and flattering. Eva Longoria also wins high praise for her risky (but rewarding) choice of red (specifically, a red mermaid gown by Reem Acra) on the red carpet. Marisa Tomei scored extra points with us for her haute bohemian style; the combination of ruffles, oversized necklaces and lace sash created a look that was both unique and chic. Evan Rachel Wood always surprises us with her ever-changing looks, but this particular ensemble really blew us away; in a stunning gown by Elie Saab, Wood reminded us of an earth-bound goddess. Young star Kate Beckinsale made our list, too, for choosing a perfectly-fitted silhouette that showed off her lovely curves. We loved the earrings and bracelet, too! Not to be outdone by the younger ladies, Laura Linney looked stunning in a sunny one-shouldered gown. Many mature celebrities commented on the beauty of little Rumer Willis’ very gorgeous (and very grown-up) gown in a rich eggplant color that helped put to rest that old-fashioned notion that redheads can’t wear purple! The always-appealing Anne Hathaway made a splash with another colorful choice: a beautiful blue Armani dress. Megan Fox went for the gold in a gorgeous fitted gown and drop earrings – we almost didn’t notice her tattoos! Red-carpet-newcomer Elizabeth Banks also burned brightly in a gown by J.Mendel paired with oversized jewelry and a red-carpet worthy ‘do.
Ten Least Favorite Looks
Unfortunately, this shiny Marchesa gown overshadowed Jennifer Lopez’s natural beauty with a look that was a little too revealing and didn’t seem to fit. Another beauty that we think that didn’t look her best was Angelina Jolie; her loose-fitting dress came off frumpy and a little boring – we wanted to see more pizzazz (and a little more hairstyle)! We wish someone could convince Beyonce that she doesn’t have to wear tight, super-low-cut gowns to look sexy. Heidi Klum disappointed us, too, in a dress that resembled black bubble wrap and looked like a Project Runway reject (and what about those shoes?) Cameron Diaz’s oversized gown matched Drew Barrymore’s oversized hair – both lovely ladies failed to outshine these big mistakes. Eva Mendes‘ fitted Dior gown looked amazing, except for what CandyKirby.com referred to as a “built-in napkin” detail. Rachel Griffiths’ dress was in desperate need of a steamer, and cutie Jenna Fisher (who we love) looked more ready for a summer barbecue than the red carpet. Another ModCloth favorite, Maggie Gyllenhaal, looked sad and lost in printed Lanvin – a belt didn’t hide the fact that her dress didn’t seem to fit!!
