The Szish Dish: Golden Globes a Fashion Grand Slam


Jennifer Love Hewitt -- Her copper lace George Chakra gown was garish at best, and her overdone hair made matters worse. No love for Jennifer from "The Szish Dish."

The Legends

The ingénues weren't the only gals setting high fashion standards. Some of Hollywood's most legendary leading ladies demonstrated that style is ageless.

Meryl Streep -- Streep would have made any fashion editor proud with her blush chiffon Carolina Herrera gown.

Helen Mirren -- Custom-created by Donna Karan, this double Globe winner's blue jersey gown with sequined tulle reigned.

Annette Bening -- According to Warren Beatty, "It's hard to be humble when you're married to Annette Bening." And it's easy to see why. She looked ravishing in a white gown with deco-style, rhinestone detailing.

The Power Couples

These high-profile duos reminded us that happily-ever-after does exist in Hollywood -- even off the screen.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie; Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner; Heidi Klum and Seal; Annette Bening and Warren Beatty; Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith; Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon; Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony; Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy; Courtney Cox and David Arquette.

White: The New Black

The red carpet was awash in shades of white and cream. Usually, three times makes a trend, but last night I counted at least fourteen instances. White is officially the new black.

Cases in point: Ali Larter in a plunging Reem Acra bias-cut dress (she told me it was one of the most comfortable gowns she's ever worn); Emily Blunt in vintage Herve Leger with a bead-encrusted neckline; Kate Walsh in a sparkling Elie Saab; Ellen Pompeo in Versace and Kate Winslet in a strapless Azzaro.

Midnight blue also made a strong showing, for both the women and the men. Winner Jennifer Hudson rocked a short-sleeved Vera Wang gown; Isla Fisher wowed in a vintage Herve Leger bandage dress with a tulle skirt; Hilary Swank's navy belted gown was one of the night's best.

Several of Hollywood's hottest stars made statements in a rainbow of bright, solid-colored dresses.

The Szish Dish honors the "Crayon Girls:"

Rachel Weisz -- Ravishing in red.

Reese Witherspoon -- Her sunshine-yellow strapless Nina Ricci number looked extra hot with those sexy red shoes.

Renee Zellweger -- Renee made us green with envy in her satin emerald strapless dress.

America Ferrera -- This Globe winner was anything but ugly in her purple Brian Reyes gown.

Sexy Necklines

Strapless -- Nearly every red carpet proffers a strapless gown or two, but based on the turnout at the Globes, this clean look is officially back in vogue. A few heavy hitters who showed up sans-straps: Reese Witherspoon, Renee Zellweger, Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet, Drew Barrymore and Rachel Weisz.

Asymmetrical -- Nicole Kidman chose a gown with an asymmetrical neckline when she wed Keith Urban last year and the trend has legs, according to Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez and Kyra Sedgwick (in J. Mendel).

Encrusted -- Some celebs wore dresses with necklines and straps that could have doubled as jewelry. These face-flattering selections turned up on Felicity Huffman, Sharon Stone, Eva Longoria and Emily Blunt.

Where Have All the Stiff Updos Gone?

Many chose to let their hair down. Gone (for the most part -- Catherine Heigl, take note) were the stiff updos that appear to have been shellacked with entire cans of Aqua Net.
