Debra Messing In Donna Karan – 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Debra Messing In Donna Karan - 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Debra Messing was one of the very first celebrities to hit the red carpet at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards held this evening in Beverly Hills.

The ‘Smash’ actress looked stunning in a strapless Donna Karan Resort 2013 gown.

The basic black dress featured heavy textured detail with a ruched bust and voluminous skirt was teamed with Rupert Sanderson ‘Jacoba’ pumps.

Her famous red hair was pulled into a sleek ponytail, showing off giant teardrop Samira 13 earrings. Two giant armfuls of Samira 13 bangles completed the look.

When asked by Ryan Seacrest what were her predictions for the evening’s fashion, Debra responded: “A lot of colour. I wanted to go bright but I put this one on and I had to have it. Maybe it’s the New York influence.”

The night is young, so only time will tell if Debra’s predictions are correct.

    What’s happened? She has such a slim frame – is it the dress making her look this wide? Oh dear.

    Someone Super Glued her hands to her hips because she didn’t move them the whole time she was presenting and that posture did nothing for her figure or the dress. Hubby said she probably had a wardrobe malfunction and was holding it on.

    I really hate that I have to say this but this is really bad. Incredibly unflattering and waaaayyyy too many bangles!

  4. Zar55 January 14, 2013 at 09:44 #

    Just ugly dress, it looks like a curtain. and looks cheap

  5. manolo January 14, 2013 at 09:42 #

    She broke it

    WOW I cringe. I mean, I loved the billowing gown on the model, and I know that Debra is not that skinny (which is fine), but this is just so unflattering on her. As a mature woman there are so many dresses that would have done justice to her and this wasn’t one. Also those plethora of bracelets are like handcuffs. Maybe she’s being arrested by the fashion police?

    This looks really cheap and unflattering. Though the dress was already a lost cause I also dislike the over abundance of horrible clunky braclets she has on too.

    Unfortunately the bodice makes her look straight up and down so she has no waist, then the skirt is so big she just looks even bigger.

  9. Rebecca Z January 14, 2013 at 00:54 #

    It is just too much in every way. Yes, she is heavier than she used to be, but she can work with that. This dress is too fussy, too many bangles on her arms, too much everything.

  10. Amy January 14, 2013 at 00:44 #

    this is so unflattering it, it makes her look wider than she is. And the skirt looks like she’s just got out of a field of thorns. too bad

  11. moja31 January 14, 2013 at 00:42 #

    she’s normally fab on the red carpet, but this makes her look so broad up top. not a good look.

  12. shaun January 14, 2013 at 00:41 #

    she looks like a line backer

  13. Parvati January 14, 2013 at 00:33 #

    I noticed that Debra has somewhat broad shoulders, so I would’ve preferred something with sleeves. Also, the skirt is a bit too flowy and puffy for her figure, I think that hugging her curves instead of hiding them would’ve done the job. Lastly, those bangles don’t add any glamorous touch, they actually look somewhat ghetto to me, I’m yearning for a bold color statement jewelry.

  14. Kathy January 14, 2013 at 00:17 #

    Besides the unflattering dress, her bangles coupled with the earrings are just too much. I would’ve preferred swapping the bangles for a necklace instead.

  16. Moxie January 13, 2013 at 23:58 #

    Not a standout. Not flattering at all.

  17. Amber January 13, 2013 at 23:54 #

    Terribly unflattering on her. It makes her look very wide and short.

    • Yeliz January 14, 2013 at 06:15 #


    • Alina January 14, 2013 at 16:27 #

      I agree. Also … hasn’t she worn something similar before?

  18. Carla January 13, 2013 at 23:49 #

    This is definately NOT stunning. This dress looks like drapery and she looks pregnant in it.

  19. Ramsay January 13, 2013 at 23:47 #

    She used to look so much better when she was skinnier 6-7 years ago – I really don’t like her tonight

  20. JJ January 13, 2013 at 23:45 #

    I’m not feeling this one. Maybe it’s the skirt?

  21. Nat39 January 13, 2013 at 23:39 #

    Widening, bulky, unflattering on her. The overload of chunky bracelets is cheapening, just not elegant enough. Thumbs down from me.

    • Marybeth January 14, 2013 at 00:25 #

      AMEN to all points.

  22. ilippe3515 January 13, 2013 at 23:39 #

    She looks terribly boring and (kind of) fat. For a woman with such a loud personality, she’s totally muted in this blah dress. DNKY: Don’t need to know you.

    • pipsqueak January 14, 2013 at 00:50 #

      +1 The Debra Messing of the Will & Grace days is completely gone. I can’t even consider her as one aging well. Whoa, just whoa.

  23. Kate January 13, 2013 at 23:38 #

    Yikes, I don’t really care for this. Besides being boring, I think it’s the style of the skirt that puts me off…I don’t like skirts that are ruched like curtains.
    The whole dress makes her appear a bit boxy. I wish there was some definition around the waist.

    • Tea January 14, 2013 at 00:35 #

      +1 Definitely. I was about to say that it looks like she made her dress out of someone’s Austrian blinds but you said it for me. Of course the dress looks a lot better on the model.

  24. gailers January 13, 2013 at 23:35 #

    Maybe this picture is a bad angle, but this dress doesn’t look quite right on Debra’s torso.

    • Vicky January 13, 2013 at 23:50 #

      It’s not the angle. It looked unflattering on TV as well.

  25. Christine January 13, 2013 at 23:33 #

    This look so unflattering on her. She is not rocking this, sadly.
