Best and Worst of the Golden Globes!

I LOVE award season! In fact -- I'm planning to have an Oscars party with my best girls - a night of champagne, girl talk, and voting for best and worst dressed! Pay attention to what you see on the red carpet though. . .as this typically sets the tone for trends of the season!

At the Golden Globes there were several trends that stood out:
1. White
2. Ruffles
3. One-shoulder
4. Statement Necklaces

Look for these trends to show up on evening and cocktail gowns alike! Like something you see? Check out Edress Me for celebrity inspired gowns! Faviana and ABS by Allen Schwartz are two designers known for mass producing celebrity inspired gowns. 

Check out the red carpet gowns in the slide show below and be sure to vote for BEST and WORST dressed!

Eva Mendez and Eva Longoria Parker tie for best dressed in my book! Both women were perfectly styled from hair, to gown choice, to jewelry. I also thought that Olivia Wilde's lavender Reem Acra gown was a fabulous choice for her! Beyonce, Debra Messing and Sandra Bullock also deserve an honorable mention!

On the worst dressed side, I have to say I am disappointed with Renee Zellweger's choice. Renee typically chooses beautiful gowns, landing her on the best dressed list. This time however, she is definitely a miss. . .although I give her credit for taking a fashion risk- the mark of a true fashionista! Cameron Diaz, Freida Pinto, Jenna Fisher also left a lot to be desired. But, my worst dressed award goes to Drew Barrymore - who looked a little like she arrived on the red carpet after a night of partying in her gown. 

Who gets your vote?
