Best and Worst of Golden Globes

My top 5 favorite gowns at the Golden Globes:

Kate Winslet (Yves Saint Laurent) - by far my favorite dress. Simple and elegant, and I love the detail on the belt. She looked gorgeous and I was happy to see her win!

Penelope Cruz (Armani Prive) - I don't think the photo does this dress justice. It looked amazing on the red carpet!

Tina Fey (Roberto Cavalli) - as I watched her give her acceptance speech, I was amazed once again by how good she is at what she does. This dress looked great on her, I just love the neckline.

Kate Beckinsale (J. Mendel) - just a beautiful dress.
Anne Hathaway (Armani Prive) - looking good, as usual, in a classic dress
My 5 least favorite:
There really weren't many dresses that I thought looked awful this year. But if I had to place a few at the bottom of the list, these would be my picks.

Renee Zellweger (Carolina Herrera) - I usually like her picks, but the mesh top just didn't look right on this gown and her hair looked too messy. I do like the silhouette on the dress though. Maybe if the top had been the same material as the bottom she would have ranked higher on my list.

Beyonce Knowles (Elie Saab Haute Couture) - not awful, but the cut on the dress doesn't look quite right on her.
Maggie Gyllenhaal (Lanvin) - the blue color on her is a good choice, but the big shoulder is too much for her small frame and the pattern was not flattering.
Eva Mendes (Christian Dior) - the detail at her hip is just too much
Drew Barrymore (Dior Haute Couture) - I hate to put her on this list, because the dress is just beautiful and looks good on her. But the hair with the dress... it's just too much volume.

Great roundup! I think Kate Winslet was my fav as well! I really loved Drew's hair here for some reason, but you're right, it would have gone better with a simpler dress.
