I'm a couple of days behind with this post, but I like to think of it as just being fashionably late! A few weeks ago we saw a host of actresses taking "the plunge," so to speak, wearing cleavage revealing dresses. On Sunday, at the 2013 Golden Globes, strapless was the neckline of choice, but many of Hollywood's elite stuck with a deep V. The plunging V is like the chocolate soufflé of tops -- it can be magnificent (and sooo sexy) or it can be somewhat of a disaster. It's a delicate balance.
Julianne Moore in Chanel couture
I'm a fan of the lovely Julianne Moore and she steps outside of the typical fashion box, which I like, but she just fell a little flat this time. Yes, pun intended. She may have won the award for best actress, but the "SAG" meant something else to me. I just wish the bodice of the dress actually fit her. Where was the highly skilled and highly sought after Ghost Tailor, Jean when you needed her? She could have saved the day! Perhaps she was busy altering dresses for other starlets or for my bestie/neighbor/blogger/award-winning jewelry designer, Wendy Brandes!
In any case, Julianne is NOT on my best-dressed list and neither is poor January Jones. I'm not going to say much about her since it's all been said already, so I'll just express my thoughts through pictures.
Sigourney Weaver in Lanvin
Sigourney Weaver earned herself a "fashion felony" and, in my opinion, looked like a black pillow sham and satin sheet. I don't think I've ever seen Lanvin look so bad. She is so statuesque, it was just the wrong dress for her.
Mrs.Slocombe (Molly Sudgen)
I hate to pick on these ladies for not quite getting it right, so I blame their stylists for not having the taste level required or simply not having the cojones to tell their employers when they look like crap. I do have to wonder about the background and the taste level of some of these, so called, stylists nowadays. Seems to me, when Kelly Osbourne is in a position of commenting on and critiquing fashion, the world has gone crazy!
