Jessica Biel did it in Prada at the Oscars in 2009. Like a handkerchief at the chest. Click here for refresher. This is, of course, Charlize Theron. Who always favours a bow. And hers is at the hip. So, obviously, it’s not quite as dumbass as Biel’s attempt at impressing Anna Wintour. Full Story

Lainey called me out last night, and she was right, for pussy footing around the fact that The Iron Lady suuuuucked.  I mean, not just a little bit.  That movie was really, really bad …but you got so distracted by Meryl.  There was a moment in the movie where she communicated with her face “well, I could, not that he would care anyway, but what’s a mother to do, these days? That’s my lot in life”. Full Story

I suppose she was trying for Jessica Rabbit: Reese Witherspoon with the bedhead and some curves. It may have worked better if the dress wasn’t so...poorly constructed. She’s drowning in it. Now I know I’m on automatic hate when it comes to taffeta and, as such, it may not be fair, my immediate aversion to her Zac Posen, but you have to admit, it’s messy across the chest. Full Story

Lainey and I were talking the other night about Daniel Radcliffe, during his SNL hosting.  Between the sense of humour he clearly has about himself and the Parade interview he gave recently where he so obviously gets that you can’t really go ‘up’ from Harry Potter (not in notoriety, box office, sheer workdays), I realized – he’s gonna be FINE. Full Story

Last year, Jon Hamm wore a really small bow tie to the Golden Globes and not even he could save it. But look at Ewan McGregor’s tiny collar. On Ewan, the tiny collar is not the little bow. The tiny collar works. It works with the lapels. It works with the tie. It works with the slim cut pants. It’s Ewan, right? It always works with Ewan. Full Story

Okay.  So I’m Zooey D.  My show’s off the ground, I’m starting to get some blowback about how over the top the cute-geek thing is, and maybe, truth be told, I’m starting to get a little exhausted of it myself.   So good.  The Globes is a relatively low-pressure time to transition into something else. Full Story

I’m not writing about her poseharding. You know it. You’ve seen it. You don’t need me to repeat it over and over again every time I post about Lea Michele. Let’s discuss instead the Marchesa. There’s been a LOT of Marchesa happening on the carpet with Lea Michele. And, well, Marchesa isn’t exactly Sarah Burton for McQueen. Full Story

We rarely agree, Duana, Sarah, Sasha, and I on a liveblog. I thought it was impossible. I also thought it was impossible to prefer Lea Michele over anyone else. Taylor Swift took care of that for Les Miserables. And Paula Patton followed last night at the Globes.How f-cking annoying was Paula Patton?Paula Patton was involved in every single award. Full Story

GG Best Schtick? Sofia Vergara & Julie Bowen

So you saw most of this play out, right?  On the carpet, we saw the dresses.  Sofia Vergara’s teal – a colour which I already think is kind of alarmingly muted – is tamped down to almost depressing.   But it fits her like no other actress’s dress ever does.  And other than the mincing down the stairs (time for E! to look into a dumbwaiter, maybe?), she looked comfortable. Full Story

GG Most Boring: Mila Kunis

I can’t believe it either. Sorry.And while I’d much rather she be boring, on a night where she was simply a presenter and no longer a nominee, I’ve never known Mila Kunis to bring such little excitement. Mila Kunis, ordinarily, is exciting even in sweats. But we’ve seen this one strap before. And the waistline is almost frumpy and the material is totally unremarkable and her makeup seems half assed and what happened to bringing out those crazy, amazing eyes? How often have you seen Mila Kunis look so dull? Maybe she needs some Jake Gyllenhaal in her life. Full Story

GG Worst Attempt At A Personality Via Her Dress: Dianna Agron

Yeah, so the dress didn’t look good, fundamentally.  It looked intricate, and it’s a great colour on many, but the cut-outs didn’t sit flush against her skin, exactly, which is a problem – and I didn’t love the endless tiers in the skirt either. But this is not her greatest sin. You want to know what is?  She chose that dress – and sure, I can see how she thought it would have a lot of impact. Full Story
