Golden Globes 2019 Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on January 08, 2019


Alright, you finely dressed Globes-trotters, we’ve got a whole bunch of other parties and after-parties to get to (and by that we mean not attend, but bitterly judge from our desks) so it’s time for the remaining ladies of this night to line up and present themselves for communal judgment. We’ll lead the way, you guys jump in at any time and shout out your thoughts. Don’t be shy! Celebrities LOVE having their every move and decision dissected!

 

 

Allison Janney in Christian Siriano

On TV, we thought this looked a little too fussy for her, especially the sleeves. But we can’t deny the color is spectacular and she looks great in it. Love the necklace.

 

 

Amber Heard in Monique Lhuillier

To be honest, we thought this was a failure on her team’s part. She’s in one of the biggest movies in the world right now. Not the time to go generic and understated.

 

 

Amy Poehler in Viktor & Rolf

Works for us. The beading on the skirt has a nice effect and we like the subtle shade of green and trim around the collar. A good, low-key glam look that suits her.
 

Charlize Theron in Christian Dior

It’s a little hard to see in this shot, but she’s sporting a gigantic black wreath bow around her neck, which kind of ruins the whole look.
 

Constance Wu in Vera Wang

Sorry, lady. Loveya but we LOATHE foundation garment-themed gowns.

 

 

D’Arcy Carden in Rosie Assoulin

It’s cute, but the top half strikes us as too summertime-sporty.

 

 

Dominique Jackson in Marc Bouwer

Fabulous and classic.

 

 

Halle Berry in Zuhair Murad Couture

She’ll always own that particular color above all others. Since she has suspended her aging process, every time she returns to this oxblood-y well, it reminds everyone of her Oscar dress from 15 years ago. As for the design, we’d have accepted the open skirt or the open neckline, but both at the same time is a bit much.

 

 

Jameela Jamil in Monique Lhuillier

A pretty dress in a pretty color story with a tiny bit of fuss and femininity, but not overdone in any way. Pretty much perfect for her, in other words.
 

 

Jamie Lee Curtis in Alexander McQueen

We love the dress and we really love the white hair, but there’s a way to do the latter and not immediately succumb to somewhat matronly styles. This hairstyle doesn’t have the kind of edge or freshness we think she can handle and from which she would benefit. A little more Annie Lennox and a little less Barbara Bush, please.
 

 

Jessica Chastain in Givenchy

Gets the job done for a new mom and non-nominee. The earrings make the look.

 

 

Judith Light in Christian Siriano

Fabulous.

 

 

Kiki Layne in Dior Couture

Again, we don’t care how pretty the wearer or the rest of the dress, visible boning or other foundation garment-style elements get an automatic eyeroll from us. That stuff is so tired.

 

 

Kristen Bell in Zuhair Murad

There’s nothing wrong with a pretty blonde going the Barbie/Marilyn route in her style choices; not if it suits her and she doesn’t go back to that well too often. She looks great here. Maybe could’ve used slightly more “done” hair, but the dress is pretty and we’re loving the heavy jewelry.
 

Laura Harrier in Louis Vuitton

It’s a pretty dress, but it’s too broad in the shoulders and neckline.

 

 

Lena Waithe in Prada

Can’t argue with any of that.

 

 

Lili Reinhart in Khyeli Couture

The bustline looks like a string of shower scrubbies.

 

 

Michelle Yeoh in Shiatzy Chen

Everyone ooh’d and aaah’d over this look so it appears we’re going to have to do the dirty work of blaspheming. She looks amazing in the green and it’s a perfect choice to show off her much-discussed ring, but there’s just too damn much dress going on her. The skirt is beautiful. We think it could have benefited from a bodice that offered perhaps a little more contrast and wasn’t rendered in leather.

 

 

 

Mj Rodriguez in Prabal Gurung

Living for the Donna Summer hair, loving the color and shape, not feeling the shoulder/sleeve action.

 

 

Penélope Cruz in Ralph & Russo Couture

It would appear to be a tiny bit too snug on her, but it’s a stunning and dramatic gown, if a bit stiff and heavy in the skirt.
