InStyle’s Golden Globes Red Carpet Wish List

With the cancellation of last years Golden Globe Awards due to the writers strike, I am so excited about this years event, I’m about to implode.

InStyle have put together a red carpet wish list for the Golden Globes, which takes place this Sunday.

I love these list, but I don’t always agree with all the picks.

The Good:

Mariska Hargitay – Their pick for a sequined multi-coloured Isaac Mizrahi would be perfect. The gold and burnt orange gives me that warm fuzzy feeling of a sun-setting.

Amy Adams – I love the low neckline of this Elie Saab dress, plus I think the pastel green would really make her glow.

Debra Messing – We have seen her in a lot of strapless dress, but not often in one-shouldered dresses, in fact just the once. This Versace dress would be a refreshing non-safe change for her.

Kyra Sedgwick – I love the colour of the Donna Karan nude embellished dress, it would look glorious against her sun-kissed skin and blonde hair. But I can almost guarantee that she will wear L’Wren Scott, as she often does for big occasions.

The One’s I Would Not Pick:

Angelina Jolie – NO BLACK, not a single hint of black do I want to see her wearing on the red carpet. Besides I don’t see her in anything from the Marchesa collection. I love what they do, but I think it might be too commercial for someone like Angelina.

America Ferrera – As above, NO BLACK. America is also someone who has relied on this colour heavily in the past. As much as I love Monique Lhilluer, I would have to say no to that as well, for exactly the same reason.

Christina Applegate – Although I love the Valentino dress InStyle picked, I have often wondered if it would make the wearer’s – not a stick thin model – seem wider than they really are, because of the draping on the hips. For this reason, I would not pick this dress for anyone.

Mary-Louise Parker – She has been there, done that with this electric blue colour, so I would say no on this occasion. Other than that it would have been perfect for her.

    Since Angelina mostly wears black, if she decided to go for a black dress, that would be a much nicer choice instead of the all black or all white gown!
    As for the rest, I totally agree with you!

    Sorry for a double post, but I checked out their entire list only later. I like their choice for Anne Hathaway, and it’s a creepy coincidence that after the Bride Wars premiere I was looking through the entire Oscar de la Renta Spring 2009 collection again and I thought that gown would be great for Anne.

    Very uninspired effort from InStyle. It’s like they picked, in most cases, either designer(s) that celebrity tends to wear, or color(s) that person was already in on the red carpet. Or BOTH in some cases. Where’s the creativity in that? You’re allowed all the imagination in the world for something like this. I’d rather pick something unexpected we haven’t seen on them yet.

    Like Leo, I’d love to see your wishlists some day. 🙂

    Rumour is that Britney Spears might be attending and wearing Atelier Versace. I hope she wears the origami style dress that appears as number 1 on the versace website. But would someone wear this dress with gold or silver accessories? I’m not sure

    I will try to find time to do one for the Oscars.

    The only pick I agree here is Kyra Sedgwick.

    Why don’t you make your own withlist, with your favorite girls and what you think they should wear?
