Lucy Liu In Carolina Herrera – 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Lucy Liu In Carolina Herrera - 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Bringing a sense of spring to the red carpet, Lucy Liu combatted Los Angeles’ unusually chilly temperatures at the 2013 Golden Globes Awards on Sunday.

The beautiful actress floated down the carpet in a floral print Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2013 ball gown.

Lucy’s gown not only infuses a sense of natural elegance into the often quite formal carpet at the Globes, but also serves to highlight the petite actress’ tiny waist.

To accent her sweet frock, Lucy donned subtle earrings, and a single stunning green cocktail ring.

I love that Lucy opted for a more relaxed hairstyle, sporting a feminine fishtail braid over one shoulder rather than a fussy updo.

Lucy’s locks are perfectly suited for a trendy side braid, so the overall effect when paired with her princess-worthy gown is simply breathtaking.

    So, so, pretty – Best Dressed to the max!

  2. Prudence January 14, 2013 at 22:19 #

    at first I thought this was hideous and a definite worst dressed, but its growing on me. I think its the person thats wearing it thats bothering me more. This isnt very Lucy Liu, shes not fashiony enough so it looks odd on her.

  3. Sofia January 14, 2013 at 21:58 #

    Lucy is very pretty, but I hate floral gowns.
    Not likey!

  4. Aitchwood January 14, 2013 at 21:22 #

    I don’t like busy floral prints, nor do I like (many) poofy dresses.

  5. Dhppy January 14, 2013 at 19:03 #

    It’s weird the way she seemed OTT compared to everyone else there. Perhaps this look is best saved for Cannes.

  6. Fureyous January 14, 2013 at 18:07 #

    I thought this was the best dress of the evening. To those naysayers on Twitter, be bold . . .see things with fresh eyes.

  7. Joy January 14, 2013 at 15:58 #

    One of my favorites of the night for sure. I just love the femininity of this look on Lucy and how she always stays true to her style. Love the way she stands out with this patter too but in a classic ball gown silhouette. I love how she looks effortlessly (or atleast what appears to be) beautiful!

    perfection. from head to toe.

  13. Jess2 January 14, 2013 at 13:00 #

    Wow!! This is so unexpected from Lucy and I am LOVING it! This is definitely the best braid we have seen over the last week. Totally amazed!

  14. Ysatis January 14, 2013 at 12:47 #

    Love the makeup and the hair but I don’t like the dress.

  15. justme January 14, 2013 at 07:01 #

    She pulls off a complicated (imo) dress. And I just loooooooooove that braid.

  16. Shaina January 14, 2013 at 04:52 #

    Wow! I am almost speechless. She so easily wears this gorgeous gown. One of the best dressed for sure.

  17. TeaAtTwo January 14, 2013 at 04:22 #

    She looks beautiful and I’m loving a bold print is on the carpet looking so fresh.
    I’m vacillating over the side braid- it does give and easiness to the grand dress but an chignon bun would have been complementary to the theme.

  18. EmmaWoodhouse January 14, 2013 at 04:09 #

    I am super impressed with Lucy. This look is refreshing, fun, ladylike, and classic. I love that she had the guts to wear it and the reserve to pair it with simple styling. This look is a joy to behold and one of the best of the night (if not the best)! Bravo Lucy!

  19. Rocio Fuentes January 14, 2013 at 04:09 #

    I really like this dress. Great job.
    And she knows how to wear it

  20. Andi Miesler January 14, 2013 at 03:38 #

    Lucy Lui was the most beautiful of all in that dress. On the models you would never know that dress could look so good. Lucy was made for that dress. Stunning

  21. taksi January 14, 2013 at 03:34 #


  22. Ella January 14, 2013 at 03:22 #

    I recently saw this when looking through Carolina Herrera’s designs again. Lucy Liu does a fantastic job at pulling this of. The skirt might be a tad too long, but I’m not going to hold that against her!

  23. MG January 14, 2013 at 03:01 #

    SHe’s soooo cute! Might be my fav look so far

  24. FC310 January 14, 2013 at 02:58 #

    Its a gorgeous gown…i wish the length is shortened for her as its kinda overwhelming her petite frame. But the color and floral prints suit her though . I wish they had added the red upper portion onto this gown as its complimentary to her skin tone and make her look even more stunning.

  25. Carmen January 14, 2013 at 02:39 #

    Best Dressed of the night¡¡

  26. Angela January 14, 2013 at 02:31 #

    LOVE!! I love how she didn’t go for the traditional bun, the plait makes the look carefree and pretty. I just love the gown too. Everything is perfect, BDOTW!

  27. asherlev1 January 14, 2013 at 01:57 #

    Best dressed. Hands down.

    • MissAmynae January 14, 2013 at 07:18 #

      Took the words right out of my mouth, dearie. Perfection.

  29. shap_half January 14, 2013 at 01:54 #

    She looks sensational!!

  30. ash January 14, 2013 at 01:54 #

    I love it.. Everyone looked dull on the red carpet and I can always depend on Lucy to bring a stunning best dress worthy look.

  31. Cooltweens January 14, 2013 at 01:45 #

    Quite stunning! I love the whole look from the first moment I saw her on the red carpet.

  32. Kathy January 14, 2013 at 01:44 #

    This is a hard dress to wear, but Lucy wears it so well! It’s girly, yet age-appropriate and fashion-forward at the same time. Perfect!

  33. Kate January 14, 2013 at 01:42 #

    STUNNING. I usually hate floral prints like this, but this entire look really works for me.
    At least she’s doing something interesting and taking risks. This carpet is boring me so far.

  34. Christine January 14, 2013 at 01:41 #

    Guess my comment was not approved? Anyhow. I thought this gown was so unexpected and I am loving this look.

    • Fashion Critic January 14, 2013 at 01:57 #

      Christine, I am going through the comments as fast as I can.

        Oh, sorry FC!!! You’re on a roll 🙂

  35. AW January 14, 2013 at 01:40 #

    I’m not a fan. All I can think of is “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast.

    The dress looks like bad curtains or cheap china.

    • msd January 14, 2013 at 02:44 #

      I keep thinking of that scene from the Sound of Music when Julie Andrews makes clothes from floral curtains.

      I like the boldness but the pattern is *too* sofa for me.

      • Vibes January 14, 2013 at 11:24 #

        Yep. Sofa pattern.
        She’s lovely as always though.

        • Tati M January 14, 2013 at 15:31 #

          Scarlet O’Hara feelings. Irk 🙁

    • Lesley Lee December 12, 2015 at 20:40 #

      At AW comment curtains or cheap China? Obviously you know nothing much about florals and fashion.
      Pure class and and ladylike detailed ball gown, carried off very well by Lucy.
      One of her best looks.
      Fresh sky blue ground with blooming florals.

  36. Moxie January 14, 2013 at 01:39 #

    Lovely, but I wish the background wasn’t grey.

  37. TL January 14, 2013 at 01:31 #

    Fllawless~ so pretty!

  38. Tea January 14, 2013 at 01:28 #

    I adore this look! A very strong contender for best dressed at the Globes for me!

  39. CreoleLady January 14, 2013 at 01:28 #

    Wow. Carolina Herrera impresses me again with color, fit, use of print, and ambassadress. First, the gorgeous off-the-shoulder circle-print dream worn by Camilla Belle. And now this beauty. Love.

    • Yeliz January 14, 2013 at 06:32 #

      Yes, Herrera had a great week. I love this look. The braid is something unexpected and looks amazing with the gown. One of the best of the night.

  40. NooG January 14, 2013 at 01:25 #

    Wow. Favorite look thus far.

  41. lee January 14, 2013 at 01:24 #

    Dying. Best dressed.

  42. Grace January 14, 2013 at 01:23 #

    I love the look, but some of these big princessy dresses on the likes of Lucy Liu, Julianne Hough, and Debra Messing feel a little like they’re trying to steal the spotlight from the nominees. Something about it feels tacky.

  43. Eve_V January 14, 2013 at 01:18 #

    I think I just died a little. I am usually not a fan of puffy princessy gowns, but this is just…heavenly. Best Dressed for me so far.

    • michaboa January 14, 2013 at 01:38 #

      +1 She looks absolutely stunning.

    • Adrian January 15, 2013 at 01:16 #


  44. holly January 14, 2013 at 01:15 #

    At first I was unsure about this one, but I think I’ve come down on the side of loving it, just because it was so very different from what everyone else was wearing. It reminds me of the impact Sarah Michelle Gellar’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown had at last year’s Globes (which many people hated but I LOVED). It will probably be just as divisive on Best/Worst Dressed lists as well.

  45. Neli January 14, 2013 at 01:14 #

    So beautiful!

  46. Nat39 January 14, 2013 at 01:14 #

    Absolutely ADORE (!!) this look on her, she is like a breath of fresh air, vibrant, playful, effortlessly elegant, and that enviable tiny waist (!!), this look is a bit more special and exciting, and her styling is absolutely impeccable. Love.

    • admmgz January 14, 2013 at 06:28 #


    • gabis January 14, 2013 at 18:17 #

      Agree. I was completely blown by the perfection of this look. I absolutely L-O-V-E it and I wouldn’t change one single thing. Undoubtedly one of the best dressed.

    • Princess Chi Chi January 16, 2013 at 08:12 #


  47. Elle January 14, 2013 at 01:11 #

    OH MY JAW!!!!!!!!! I has droppppped!!!!! She looks amazingly beautiful and fun! That is such a gorgeous gown!!!

  50. Christine January 14, 2013 at 01:08 #

    This is so unexpected and I am loving the boldness of this look. It would not work anywhere else but the globes. She knock the house down!
