When it comes to fashion, we’re all guilty of missing the mark now and again. Unfortunately for these celebs, their arrows sailed clear of the best dressed target on the very public 2011 Golden Globes red carpet. Here’s a playful peek at some of this year’s fashion foibles.
Golden Globes Red Carpet Oops #1: Helena Bonham Carter. She’s always been unconventional, but this one was even more over the top than usual. Think ‘electrocuted peacock’ and you’ll get a good mental image of the “Alice in Wonderland” star’s get-up: Crazy sunglasses, crazier dress, craziest hair. And I didn’t even mention the mismatched shoes: One green, one red (but at least both were the same style), perhaps in celebration of the recently passed Christmas holiday. She definitely had room for a partridge in a pear tree in her hairdo.
Golden Globes Red Carpet Oops #2: Christina Aguilera. Okay, so I actually sorta liked the “Burlesque” star’s dress. It had a nice almost vintage charm to it (until it dawned on me that she looked like she was totally naked save some strategically placed black lace doilies). But there was way too much boob showing above a way too low neckline, which made her look more like a sausage than a starlet. You can do better, Xtina.
Golden Globes Red Carpet Oops #3: January Jones. Her bright red Versace gown was a bit too ‘stripper’s night away from the pole’ for my personal taste. She looked pretty from the neck up and the waist down, but bore an unsettling resemblance to an unwrapped mummy in the ‘look at my boobs!’ mid-section. Oh well: At least 2/3 of the outfit worked, right? She’s still a beautiful gal. (Now I know a lot of y’all will disagree with me on this one, but that’s a-okay. It’s subjective, remember? It’s my personal prerogative to rag on publically-worn dresses that conjure up images of the toilet paper wedding gown I made at my bridal shower.)
Golden Globes Red Carpet Oops #4: Julianne Moore. It was an epic battle between the actress and a hot pink shower curtain, but in the end, the curtain came away victorious. The odd bubble shape coupled with the strange folds in the fabric did absolutely nothing figure-flattering for the Best Actress nominee. And although I can admire the natural look when it comes to make-up, she took the concept of Goth-punk white a little too seriously.
Golden Globes Red Carpet Oops #5: Tilda Swinton. This get-up was atrocious from head to toe. From the slicked-back ‘do to the poorly-fitted white blouse to the bizarre yellowish tan skirt, it just didn’t work at all. I’ll take January Jones’ dress 100 times over this one. It was bad enough that I can’t even try to be funny. Sorry.
So who made your 2011 Golden Globes red carpet oops list?
