The Beautiful Classicals at Golden Globe Awards 2006

The fashion at this year's Golden Globes was AMAZING! I LOVED the main theme of lux. whites and neutrals. For once, most stars were dressed very up-to-fashion and the dresses actually suited the stars who wore it, (as opposed to stars wearing unsuitable dresses just because they were trendy.) The dresses were mostly SO beautiful that I'm only going to talk about the dresses I liked the most:

Reese Witherspoon -LOVED her haute couture Chanel dress. It's Chanel without looking old, and glamorous without looking over the top. I also love how simple and elegant her shoes were. And Reese just prooves that to outshine everyone, all you need is an incredible and genuine smile. She's such a darling!

The women of Wisteria Lane -Teri Hatcher in Versace, Felicity Huffman in Marchesa, Nicolette Sheridan in Armani, Eva Longoria in Bob Mackie and Marcia Cross in Marc Bouwer. As usual, the colors of the five are conviniently coodernated. The styles of their dresses are very 'them' -Marcia in a red-hair-complimenting-colored dress, Eva being very eye-catching and Teri sleek and glam. Not unexpectedly, breath-stopping beautiful...... just elite as normal.

Charlize Theron -looking exquisite in Dior. I love the whole black lace over nude-color tube design.

Sandra Oh -in a slinky Collette Dinnigan gown. The dress really suited her. Congrats for her winning Best Supporting Actress in Television Series, she def deserved it! For those who don't know, Sandra is an intense surgical intern in Grey's Anatomy. Grey's Anatomy is one of my recent favourite tv show -all the characters in the show are so smart!

Renee Zellweger -in Carolina Herrera. For once, Renee really looked great in her dress, at least not as awkward as she did in previous dresses.

Keira Knightley -possibly one of THE most stunning actress on the red carpet in this Golden Globes. She's wearing a Valentino gown and holding a Tod's clutch. She looks so dazzling I don't know what else to say!

Ziyi Zhang -in a bright, lime Giorgio Armarni gown. This is def one of the more daring dresses on the red carpet, and Ziyi really wore it well.

Kate Beckinsale -another one of my very favourites. She wore a Dior gown. She's also another 'simply stunning' star. The dress is so divine and elegant.

In general the makeup was absolutely luminous -picture porcelin skin with black eyeliner and
mascara on a well-highlighted face.

Hairstyles were mostly up-dos. My favourite was the glamorous-looking messy up-do, which made up-dos less stuffy and more youthful. Seriously, look at Keira Knightley, her makeup looked gorgeous and her hair seemingly casual. This is what being young and fabulous should be all about in 2006!

i agree with most of your picks, but charlize definitely looked uncomfortable in that dior dress. and i thought the green color looked pretty bad on ziyi. and keira, the dress is stunning, but it's so similar to a lot of ones she's worn to recent events.

What is it with Renee and dresses with trains? But she did look quite nice.
Do NOT like Teri Hatcher's dress, she always seems to wear loud, revealing and often ugly clothes, I mean ALL the stars there have amazing bodies but the classier of them don't feel the need to wear the tightest dress they can find.
A lot of cocktail length dresses around, which I really liked. Reese Witherspoon looked so lovely and natural. Charlize Theron picked a great dress too.

I read that Charlize's dress was actaully sheer, and she didn't realize it until the red carpet. So she spent the whole nigh hunch over.

I do so liked Ziyi Zhang's dress. Lime is such a hard color to wear-but she did it well! And as far as cocktail dresses go, I liked Charlize Theron's dress. It really went with Dior's recent theme. Although I did read that she wasn't too comfortable in it as well. . . Was a bit disappointed by Mischa Barton and Mary Kate's dress. They didn't look too comfortable in it. . .

just a little gripe: the word you mean is "classic", not "classical". you kept saying "classical chanel" handbags in your purse post and you're doing it again. lol it's not a big deal but anyway.
I think Renee & Ziyi looked so amazingly stunning! Best dresses on the carpet! I didn't get a chance to watch the Golden Globes so I wished you would have posted up a few no-no's! haha. anyway, I definately agree with everything you said! I'm so excited to go shopping soon; I have all the upcoming styles trends of 2006 down PAT because of you! Thanks! =)

I think Mary Kate's dress would have looked much better if she wasn't so tanned. Her skin, dress and hair colors were so similar it looked a bit... basically not her best outfit.

Keira Knightley looks fantastic... the dress suits her figure and the hair / makeup do her face justice too (much more so then the cropped do she had when shooting Domino.)

Sometimes when I watch these shows I just wish that these women would try wearing some young fresh designers in order to give these old stale shows a little more spirit. They are so safe now until they are boring: Let's try a list of designers that could breath fresh air into these shows: Zac Posen, Proenza Schouler, Mal Sirrah, Zaldy, Doo Ri, and Imitation of Christ

I thought that Natalie Portman was by far the best dressed. I'm not usually wowed by her, but the pixie cut and Chanel (I think) dress suited her frame beautifully.

I thought Cynthia Nixon did not look so good, and Geena Davis too, but I never find her that beautiful.
Can;t decide about Gwyneth Paltrow, the dress was oh so frilly but she did look sweet, hmmmm... not sure.

great fashion wrap-up!

i loved ziyi zhang's and keira knightley's dresses. gorgeous.

and i thought for being pregnant, gwyneth paltrow looked just angelic and glowing.

cynthia nixon looked like some strange hobbit or troll dressed her.

i was disappointed by nicollette sheridan's dress. it was rather boring, demure, and lackluster.

The comment of a fashion journalist was quite funny: "I´m really disappointed this year! No fashion mistakes! I´ll go home!"

I agree with many of you choices, however, I think that Kate Beckinsale's dress went far too un-noticed. Also, I too liked Reese Witherspoons' dress, but I must say, I enjoyed it more so on Kirsten Dunst when she wore the exact same gown to the Golden Globes a few years back!

Yes, Kirsten Dunst chose the same dress only three years ago!!!
Well, and what about Natalie Portman, in Chanel, and Gwyneth Paltrow, in Balenciaga, and Mary Louise Parker in a beautiful little black dress? And Ellen Pompeo? Her Valentino white dress was more beautiful than Keira´s one!!! And Laura Linney in a red Valentino? What a difference with Scarlett!!!

Is it true that Reese's dress wasn't a really vintage collection item? The Sun said that dress had only a a few years, and that Kirsten Dunst has already wore it in a party.

Has anyone heard about this Glam Slam Sweepstakes thing?

@ Mrs. de Winter

Laura Linney´s dress looks quite cheap although it´s Valentino.

Reese Witherspoon's dress is the ugliest I have seen in ages. She looked disasterous in it, I think her stylist is hiding in a basement right now, getting over whatever drug he/she was on when persuading Reese to wear it. Maybe he/she was doing Kirsten as well a few years back, commiting the first mistake, but got trashed in the meantime and forgot all about it. Yuk!

Quinn, I also totally agree that Natalie Portman's Chanel dress was outstanding. She managed to look sophisticated as always, yet sexy and young at the same time instead of trying to dress older than her age. I also agree that a lot of stars tend to play it safe and stick with designers they know (I LOVE Renee Zellweger and, more often than not, her fashion choices, but sometimes I wish she'd get away from Carolina Herrara and try some new designs)or else they just dress outragously for attention and completely blow it.
Does anyone remember Brittany Murphy's dress from the Globes two years ago? I loved that it was a perfect glam/punk/30s blend. Leave it to Dolce and Gabbana!

Keira Knightley's look is definitely my favorite. Most of the women look nice in their dresses. No one did anything too awkward.
