Whether long and straight (Courtney Cox, Beyonce and Reese Witherspoon) or loose and tousled (Rachel Weisz, Kate Winslet, Salma Hayek, Ali Larter, Jennifer Hudson, Sheryl Crow, Hilary Swank and Jennifer Garner), the top trend was clean, shiny and sexy hair.
Once again, I have to give a shout out to Oscar Blandi, who predicted that very trend more than 24 hours before the big event.
But, what would an awards show be without some hair disasters? The Szish Dish Bad Hair Day award has resulted in a tie between Vanessa Williams and Will Ferrell (did they stick their fingers in the same socket?)
In-your-face bling is a thing of the past, and I am pleased to report that the goodbye officially renders the word "bling" irrelevant and soooo over (you may pause to do a celebratory dance now). That said, diamonds were out in full force and in all forms.
But, this time necklaces weren't chunky and heavy; they were delicate and pretty, in some cases barely noticeable (Angelina Jolie, Renee Zellweger, Kate Winslet and Kate Walsh).
Rectangular-cut diamond rings were popular, as were classic shaped diamonds in soft shades of pink and yellow. Some celebs chose to make a statement with larger, dangling earrings, but most wisely used them as stand-alone statement pieces.
Custom gowns, mega-karats, and perfect bodies aside, the most memorable moment of the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards came straight from the mouth of one of the night's big winners.
As she stood on stage in front of Hollywood's most beautiful people, accepting one of the industry's biggest awards, "Ugly Betty's" America Ferrara brought us all back to Earth when she reminded us, "Beauty lies deeper than what we see."
See you at the Oscars!!!
