2012 Golden Globe Awards Best Dressed List

Indeed, time flies so fast. It was only last year since I started this blog and vowed to give you guys an update of the Golden Globe Awards. And now, the 2012 Golden Globe Awards has concluded and the winners have been revealed. Check out the list of winners at the bottom of this post.

On to my main subject—the Best Dressed list. I only picked out my top 5 choices though, as there were only a few good ones to choose from. It puzzles me how some Hollywood celebrities make awful choices when it comes to their wardrobe. I mean, hey, they are like the highest paid celebrities in the world and they can’t hire a decent stylist? Not that I’m a good dresser myself, but you understand what I mean, right?

The fifth spot would go to Kate Beckinsale. She chose a Roberto Cavalli gown and matched her look with diamond bracelets and earrings.

My fourth choice would be this Basil Soda dress worn by E! personality and Fashion Police panelist Giuliana Rancic. I’m digging the torso details, which give a conservative yet sophisticated vibe.

This is my third. Oh viva Versace! Haha. Aside from Nicole Kidman looking sexxxay in this dress, I also love how the torso details were constructed. It looks so structured, prolly because of the diagonal bodice cuts you see. I’m not sure though about the gold detailing/studs(?)—they look a bit over-the-top to me, which could be the reason why she kept her accessories minimal. Balance is key.

Second, one perfect example of a celebrity who always gets it right is Angelina Jolie. If you watched last year’s GGAs, then you could recall her looking so stunning in a sparkly green dress. This look of hers is no different. She was jaw-dropping in this year’s Golden Globes, thanks to this Atelier Versace gown. I’m not really a fan of satin or any glossy fabric, but the pop of red won me over.

And my top best dressed gal is no other than my forever girl crush Charlize Theron, who graced the red carpet in Dior Haute Couture gown and vintage Cartier jewels. The way her hair was styled is impeccable. Truly, she looked like a real Grecian or Greek goddess, if I may say.

So there are my best dressed ladies. But I think though there’s one girl who deserves a special mention. I’ve never really seen her as a fashion icon, but her look at last night’s GGAs is refreshing:

Yep, it’s indeed Zooey Deschanel! I loved how she showed her quirky and unique sense of style. This Prada dress complete with black and green embellishments stayed true to her personality.

The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards

I was so busy lately and I didn’t find out until yesterday that the Grammys had concluded. Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now won Record of the Year. I couldn’t agree more, you know. It is indeed one hell of a song.  There is a lot of buzz arising regarding Eminem losing over The Suburbs for Album of the Year, and Justin Bieber over Esperanza Spalding (I know what you’re thinking, I don’t know her either.) for Best New Artist.

To know the complete list of winners, check here.

Of course, awards night is never complete without the display of gowns and tuxedos. I don’t know much about men’s fashion, so I’d rather talk about the ladies. Below are my top 5 picks:

5th: Kathy Griffith. Yellow is a lovely color. Suits her.
4th: Selma Blair. I would want to wear that dress even if I'm not pregnant.
3rd: Heidi Klum looking chic and poised in Julien Macdonald
2nd: Jennifer Hudson. Oh Versace, you never fail to impress me!
1st: Nicole Kidman gets my vote. Wearing a floral Jean Paul Gaultier, she is definitely ready for spring. I particularly adore its fade effect.

Musicians, I think, are the most creative people in the entertainment industry. They come up with seriously hilarious stunts and surprises. And this won me hands down:

Do you recognize her? It's Snooki Polizzi of Jersey Shore! Her antics annoy me, but when she graced the red carpet at yesterday's Grammy's, I was in utter shock. The girl can definitely pull off a sophisticated look, yo.

But yeah, even Snooki was no match for The Fame Monster:

Where on earth is she?

Lady Gaga was inside that giant translucent egg. Reminded me of The Emperor’s New Clothes only that she wasn’t naked. It was reported she didn’t come out of the egg until her performance. Grand entrance, eh? This is what you call thinking out of the box.
