I curled up with my dogs and a bowl of popcorn on Monday night to watch the Golden Globes. This awards show is a once-a-year opportunity for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to recognize film and television talent whom HFPA thinks has excelled in the past year. The show is also a chance for style gazers—like the JCKstyle team—to ruminate on how Hollywood accessorized for the evening. So as is customary with this annual event, I hereby offer up my two cents on the Globe attendees’ winning and losing looks.
Best Use of Hair Jewelry: Hilary Swank. That huge jeweled orchid in her hair is from Chopard. It really looked sharp on Swank, and was perfect for her simple dress and girl-next-door visage.
Best Jewelry: Angelina Jolie. Her charcoal grey strapless dress was gorgeous, and her jewelry—traditional Indian-influenced designs in what looked like 22k gold—was wonderfully cosmopolitan and unlike anything others wore that evening. It’s great to see a star opt for such a sophisticated jewelry suite.
Sharpest-looking Couple: Without a doubt, it’s Seal and Heidi Klum. They are SO in love and it shows in every picture. Their outfits are flattering and her huge diamond necklace with pendant drop is perfect.
Most Elegant Look: Helen Mirren. This Globe winner was stunning in a blue dress with short sleeves and an extraordinary pear-shaped sapphire pendant necklace with diamonds. You can’t go wrong with sapphires, especially ones of that size and color—the shade of the Aegean Sea.
Best Outfit Overall: Jennifer Lopez. Her look was terrific. Her dress was interesting—a black Grecian-inspired flowing gown with gold trim—without being weird. The gown also didn’t resemble the multitude of strapless dresses prevalent that night. The jewelry accented the dress beautifully. She wore a large yellow gold cuff and oversized gold earrings, both with an Old World feel.
Worst Look Overall: Cameron Diaz. The stress of the actress’ recent breakup with Justin Timberlake was apparent on awards night. Diaz looked like she was headed for a prom in her frilly white gown. Gobs of oversize diamond jewelry made matters worse by overwhelming her slender frame. The bow on the dress did match her hair, though.
Most Boring Look: Sharon Stone. A black sequined spaghetti strap dress, a plain black cropped jacket, diamond hoops, a plain white metal bangle, a few stack rings, and a big clunky watch. BOR-ING!
