Golden Globes Fashion Recap 2016

SOMEWHERE IN BRENTWOOD, JEN GARNER WAS CACKLING AND JUMPING UP AND DOWN ON THE BED IN HER PJ’s.

Cuz it was so spot on, even Ben Affleck’s best buddy couldn’t not laugh when Ricky Gervais introduced Matt by saying: “He’s also the only person who Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to.”  BHAJFHAHDHAAHHAHA.  Watch the video here.

ALL HAIL THE QUEEN.

You can knock the Rose-Bowl-Parade-float-sized-meringue she’s wearing (which I think is Dior), but I think she looks regal and so fabulous.  Plus, under that are abs of steel.  Plus, I’d take her bod any day, and girlfriend’s in her 70’s.

NOT AWFUL BUT NOT GREAT.

I meeeeeeeeean.  We’re torn on this.  She’s made a few worst dressed lists, but it’s not terrible.  She still looks pretty.

HEY BOSS.

It’s way safe, and we would’ve loved to have seen her get outside the box, but she looks comfortable and beautiful and sticks with what works for her.  And we love her no matter what she does.  And her hair is amazing.  And she’s amazing.

Kate Winslet

AND CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS MOMENT?

I was warmer and gooier on the inside watching this than the 13″ x 9″ pan of brownies we slammed last night.  Look at those lifelong besties catching up.

SPEAKING OF A DYNAMIC DUO.

I dropped said plate of brownies and let my jaw rest comfortably on the floor the whole time these two were on stage.  Never have I ever seen anything more beautiful than this. #spankvault

PERFECTION.

I feel like she always does red, yet somehow managed to reinvent it this time and made it look totally fresh and modern.  The cutouts are sophisticated, not slooty, and that necklace – GAWD.  PS did you hear what she said to Al Roker when he asked to take a selfie with her??  “Of course!!  I mean, you know what my parents always say: ‘Al Roker for President.'”  She kills me.  One of our best dressed.

WHERE’S THE REST OF IT?

You know we love K-Hud.  And we’d all go Hunger Games on each other to have that bod.  She’s glittery and gorgeous and she can do WHATEVER SHE WANTS if you ask us.  But if I were Bud Sutton (my late Gramps), I’d probably nonchalantly say – while I was cleaning out one of my ears with the end of my glasses – “Katie’s a pretty girl but I can’t figure out why she went to the Globes in her underwear.”  Be ye know… girlfriend did just launch a fitness brand, so we’ll chalk it up to representing.

HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY, MARILYN MONROE

I’m sorry but she’s younger than me (I think) and somehow managed to look like an Octogenarian.  Also – remember the time she didn’t thank her HOTTER-THAN-HADES boyfriend Taylor Kinney in her acceptance speech??  C’mon girl.  Get it together.

Lady-Gaga-Gown-Golden-Globes-2016

LAID BACK & LOVELY.

Amy has *never* looked more gorgeous or more effortless.  Bra-freaking-vo.

IMMA WRITE HER AN rX…

…for 7 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies and 17 large pepperoni pizzas, stat.

Kate Bosworth

MOST IMPROVED PLAYER.

Could Melissa and Melissa’s hair look more amazing??  We think not.  She looked and sounded so happy.

Melissa McCarthy

ROYALTY..

…is what this woman is.  And even though she wears a work of art every year, looks flawless and belongs in the Louvre, her confidence is her best accessory.  Always.

Cate Blanchett

DEATH BECOMES HER PART II.

I’m so confused.  Emilia is such a stunning girl.  Did her & Gaga share a dressing room?

Emilia-Clarke-Gown-Golden-Globe-Awards-2016

WHITE HOT.

One of our best dressed for sure.  The dress (did you see it from the back???), the bob, the sapphire earrings – perfect.  And complete with the attitude??  “I’ve waited 20 years for this – you gohn WAIT!”  Love it.

Taraji P Henson

PERFECT ON HER.

Perfectly tailored and she looks perfectly pretty.  PS when does Downton come back on??  Or did I miss it?

joanne froggatt

STILL IN CHARACTER.

Either she’s still riding the wave of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, or she’s channeling one of Emilia Clarke’s dragons from G.O.T.

Oh. My. GYAH.  Karrie and I both died when we saw her.  It’s like Boho Bad a$$ perfection.  It’s effortless, it’s got a 70’s vibe going on… we collectively die.  Hands-down one of our Best Dressed.

BEST BEAUTIFULLY BUTTERY COLOR EVER.

I don’t know what I loved the most…  that stunning color, her hair – which was so prim and pretty and perfect, that lip color or I mean, DAMN.  Just her confidence.

THE ALFRED DUNNER COLLECTION FROM JC PENNEY’s CALLED.

They want their dress back.  And if y’all aren’t familiar with Alfred Dunner, it’s a lovely line chock fulla matching ensembles for old ladies – I used to buy them for Ruthie at Christmas.  The earrings were also confusing.  PS, oh sh*t, I just read online that it’s Jenny Packham…. whoops.  K so if anyone needs me, I’ll be in the fashion doghouse.  (( But c’mon. ))

A BIT BRIDAL, BUT SUPER PRETTY.

Malin-Akerman-in-Reem-Acra-2016-Golden-Globe-Awards-1024x1539

WHAT A ROCK STAR.

She’s a smoke show.  She also had this situation going on in the back – you girls know the feeling – when you’re in a hustle and distracted and then you realize your ponytail holder either fell out or is 1″ from your ends and 2 seconds away from falling out.  I doubt she cares.

PERFECT FOR THE WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS’ DINNER.

(FROM THE BACK), IT WAS LIKE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE BUTCHER TIES A PIECE OF MEAT REALLY TIGHT WITH STRING.

Just a lotta flesh popping out a lotta places.

AND A NEW FASHION ICON IS BORN.

This is my favorite doily of all time – and y’all know how much I love a doily.  No but for real… she looks AMAAAAAZING.  Can’t wait to see what she wears to the Oscars.

NOT SURE WHO SHE IS BUT –

pretty sure she looked amaze.  Just kidding – she’s Peter Facinelli’s new fiancé.  Get it girl.

HILARIOUS SKIT WITH EVA LONGORIA.

Otherwise it read a little Prom 2005 to me.  But I love her. #sisterhoodofthetravelingpants4eva

THANK GOD – IT’S ABOUT TIME.

Don Draper for President.  The End.

Jon Hamm

SO HANDSOME.

The salt & peppa + those glasses + that tux = that man is aging so gracefully.  I think I’d like to have coffee & do the New York Times crossword puzzle with him in a little mountain house on a Sunday morning.  Karrie and I gasped when the camera panned to him, and then we both mentally panned back to 1994.

SNIFF SNIFF TEAR.

I dunno about you, but I teared up when they called Rambo’s name.  He also, I thought, spouted the most poignant line of the night when he said:

I am the sum total of everyone I’ve ever met,

and I’m so lucky I’ve absorbed some of it.”  

How true is that for all of us?

That’s all we got!  See you on the flip side aka tomorrow for Bach Recaps… and later this week for a renovation update on Casa Covet Living!
