Best and Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes 2014

Award season is well and truly here and last night the biggest and most beautiful stars were celebrating their talent in style at the Golden Globes. Let's take a look at the hits and misses on the red carpet. 

Best Dressed 

Emma Watson

What do you do when you can't make that painstaking choice between cigarette trousers and a deep red gown? You combine the two to create this stunning Dior ensemble English rose Emma Watson wore on the red carpet last night. Combining the look with slim midnight blue stilettos and a subtle low bun, the actress looked effortless. 


Amy Adams

Red was definitely a shade I was lusting after last night as fiery-haired actress Amy Adams opted for the same foxy tone as Watson. The plunging V-neck in deep maroon that led into a vibrant rouge suited her fair complection however I would have loved to have seen her hair in some loose waves. Either way a stunning piece. 

Emma Roberts

In the height of its third season, American Horror Story actress and the newly engaged Emma Roberts topped her current success by looking effortlessly chic in her LBD accompanied by intricate oversized turquoise earrings. Accentuating her features in all the right places and with scraped-back hair that allowed all eyes to be on that dress, I thought it was one of the most striking looks of the night.  

Margot Robbie 

Emerging Australian actress Margot Robbie can do no wrong lately as her pieces for The Wolf of Wall Street premieres measured up to this stunning white Gucci gown. Jewel embellishments around the waist and sleeves flattered her svelte figure and those cheeky emerald heels add a splash of colour to her ethereal look. Top marks Margot! 

Jennifer Lawrence
This lady has had a fabulous few months in fashion with an immense amount of successful pieces she donned during the world tour promotion of The Hunger Games Catching Fire. The most anticipated star of the night didn't disappoint in Dior as she embraced monochrome in this prom dress-esque sleeveless piece. Her deep rouge and oceanic earrings brought a fabulous contrast and finished off her look perfectly. You can do no wrong J- Law. 

Julie Bowen

Velvet has been in for quite a while on the high street, and I was wondering when it might infiltrate the red carpet. Bowen demonstrated the right way to wear the fabric with this simple two-tone dress complete with belt and puffed 80s-style sleeves. That plum bottom half is to die for. 

Kate Beckinsale

I'm not usually a fan of the metallic, but this shining piece would make a magpie foam at the mouth. Beckinsale combined the dress with minimal accessories, a plain black clutch and a messy up do- less is definitely more. 

Amelia Clarke
The name Proenza Schouler might not be as prominent as Dior and Oscar De La Renta when it comes to red carpet fashion, but I would note it down. The mini mosaic monochrome print on the dress incorporated translucent panelling and a sophisticated front split. Perfection. 

Julianna Margulies

Black dresses are the easiest way to make an impact whilst looking effortlessly gorgeous, suitably demonstrated here by Margulies whose black floor length gown becomes encapsulating at the shoulders and foot of the dress where gold coral-esque embellishments spread and progress. 

Amber Heard
Johnny Depp's newest beau made an Angelina-esque impact on the red carpet in this midnight blue silk Atelier dress. Her loose and volumous quiff with smokey eyes would make anyone swoon. Fabulous job Amber! 

Worst Dressed

Tina Fey

Fey is never too far from my worst dressed list, and I thought this gown was up there as one of her most dire. Curvaceous figures are fabulous but accentuating them further as demonstrated below is anything but flattering. Pink is a dangerous colour and just doesn't work here. 

Zoe Saldana

My relationship with partially sheer pieces went from a slight dislike to a clinical loathing after seeing this piece worn by Saldana last night. Baby pink and black are colours only seen in the likes of Ann Summers, and those off-shoulder straps give me palpitations. WHY! 

Uma Thurman

Two pieces are increasingly popular in high fashion and even though we are often encouraged to experiment with varying prints, this dress is a perfect demonstration of a clothing calamity. Slate grey silk combined with a black 90s-style high neck makes for a puzzling composition. 

Mila Kunis
I usually love Kunis' style but this Gucci piece looks as if it should have been thrown away with last year's tinsel. Let's just hope she won't go the same way as Miss Longoria, who is now beyond help when it comes to red carpet mishaps. 

Aubrey Plaza
Oscar de la Renta's over-simplistic bridesmaid-esque piece worn by Aubrey Plaza did nothing for me. The putrid two-tone silky gown sat uncomfortably on Plaza's figure and her matching pink clutch and purple heels make me want to vom. 

Zooey Deschanel
Oh dear maybe I'm just not into Oscar de la Renta because I was sorely disappointed with Zooey's inspid shade and style of her dress. The only redeeming element to her outfit were her intricately embellished shoes which look like they could cause potential damage if she kicked anyone. 

Bernice Bejo 

Bejo may have made an impact stepping out in this outfit last night, but in a lot of ways I wish she would have faded into the carpet. What looked like a sleeveless blazer with crustacean style embellishments clinging to it composed the top half of the piece with a tatty train that made up the bottom half. More tampon than trendsetting.  

Jemima Kirke 

Oh maybe Kirke thought the Golden Globes were hippie themed? The beach is the opposite way, love. A boho look is extremely desirable but donning a piece that looks as if it faded in the wash really isn't. 

Lena Dunham 
Wow, worst dressed of the night goes to this little lady who not only got the colour of her gown wrong, but shape too. The top half of the piece is wonderfully figure-hugging yet swamps her as it reaches into a fat fishtail. My eyes hurt. 

Reese Witherspoon 
Oh no Calvin Klein, I don't know about you but I would consider wearing this to the gym.. The halter neck and colour are perfect for a workout! Did someone pin Witherspoon down and chemically straighten her hair? The style doesn't suit her at all and I'm assuming those wispy bits at the front are some sort of fringe?
