It was all about Olivia Wilde in her strapless lavender Reem Acra Bridal Spring 2008 gown for me. She was nothing short of SPECTACULAR in that exquisite dress with a voluminous ruffled skirt and I adored the soft pastel color on her.
Even though 2009 has just begun, I am pretty sure this dress is going to be in my “Top 5 Dresses of 2009“.
Amy Adams was pure magic in her black strapless Oscar De La Renta Spring 2009 gown which had a voluminous skirt and leaf embellishments all over the dress. Amy opted for emerald green leaf-shaped earrings (♥ ♥ ♥) to complete her look.
It was a safe choice for Amy to wear this dress, but she looked SO, SO great in it, I couldn’t care less.
Anne Hathaway was almost equally stunning in her midnight blue strapless gown from the Armani PrivÃ© Fall 2006 Couture collection. The dress’s sparkling bodice was shining against Anne’s flawless alabaster skin and her stunning earrings got me gushing over her perfect ensemble.
Loved the red nail polish as well.
A striking Laura Linney outshined most of her younger colleagues on the red carpet in a yellow Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture one-shouldered gown.
The asymmetrical dress was embellished at the waist and beautifully draped at the hips. I also loved Laura’s lovely leaf-shaped earrings (♥).
Kate Winslet was my No.1 girl crush last night. She was such a stunner! I’m so glad she won both awards for “Best Supporting Actress” and “Best Actress“. Her acceptance speech was so touching, I had to dash away one or two tears of my own.
While I will admit that her black strapless Yves Saint Laurent isn’t the most exciting dress, I am convinced Kate carried it off with more elegance than everyone else who attended the Golden Globes last night. She has so much class. I ♥ you, Kate!
January Jones channelled old Hollywood last night in her sky blue one-shouldered Versace Spring 2009 dress and blonde retro waves.
Her dress had pockets at the side and gold lining along the folds. Quintessential Versace and I absolutely LOVED it!
Eva Longoria turned heads in a dramatic red strapless Reem Acra gown which had a long mermaid hem and scalloped edging on the bodice. The Desperate Housewives star completed her look with silver jewelry (loooove the flower-shaped earrings) and a Daniel Swarovski clutch.
This type of dress is favored by Eva for big events such as the Golden Globes. Though being a slightly predictable choice, no one is going to blame Eva for looking so stunning in this red gown.
Miss Golden Globe 2009 Rumer Willis opted for an eggplant Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2009 strapless gown which she accessorized with a black jeweled belt and looked absolutely enchanting in it.
Salma Hayek sure knows how to dress her assets. The racy actress strut the red carpet in a figure-hugging ivory Bottega Veneta dress and accessorized with Boucheron jewelry and a grey Bottega Veneta woven box clutch.
Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood looked absolutely svelte in a sparkling black tiered Elie Saab Fall 2006 Couture gown which had a plunging neckline and floral appliquÃ© at the waist.
A great look for Evan. Maybe next time we’ll get to see a little more color on her.
Jennifer Morrison opted for some color on the red carpet and donned a cobalt blue Oscar De La Renta Pre-Fall 2009 strapless ruched dress. The actress completed her look with an elegant updo and beautiful matching Lorraine Schwartz earrings.
This dress was one of my favorites of Oscar De La Renta‘s Pre-Fall 2009 collection and it’s great to see someone like Jennifer pulling it off effortlessly.
Kudos to America Ferrera for NOT wearing black. She was also one of the few who did not opt for floor-length gowns. Instead America went for an asymmetrical taupe knee-length dress from the Oscar De La Renta Pre-Fall 2009 collection which she accessorized with silver jewelry and matching peep-toe pumps. Gorgeous!
Mary-Louise Parker “felt blue” last night and opted for a cobalt blue strapless Carlos Miele Spring 2009 dress which had asymmetrical tiers cascading down from the bodice with a floaty chiffon train at the bottom. The actress completed her look with a Mary Norton clutch and Chopard jewelry.
I wasn’t too fond of the blue eyeshadow though.
Drew Barrymore was delicate in her dusty blue John Galliano off-the-shoulder gown. Most people weren’t discussing her dress though, but her big messy hair. Personally I didn’t really like it, but apart from that Drew looked to good to not being on the “Best Dressed”-list. But I am still not sold on the red clutch, too.

Kate Beckinsale is starting to annoy me with her really booooring dress choices. Yes, she looked great in that white strapless dress from J.Mendel (again!), but her dresses are all the same. Strapless, figure-hugging and often white. And those ruby red chandelier earrings didn’t do anything for me either. Start reading some fashion blogs, Kate!
BeyoncÃ© Knowles in Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture was also very predictable. The singer left her alter ego Sasha Fierce at home and turned to her old bling bling “Look, here I am!“-self with a faible for too-tight-to-stand-straight-in-it type of dresses. I liked her more when she tried the risky route (think Gareth Pugh).
BeyoncÃ©’s necklace was to die for though, so she hits the last place on “Best Dressed“.
