Paula Patton In Stéphane Rolland Couture – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Paula Patton In Stephane Rolland Couture - 2014 Golden Glove Awards

Paula Patton undoubtedly turned a few heads, as she took to the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday (January 12).

The actress left no ruffle unturned in her Stéphane Rolland Spring 2013 Couture winter-white design, which she matched with Charlotte Olympia platform pumps,

The long, body-con gown skimmed across her sleek physique, yet featured an embarrassment of flounces that rippled down the left side.

While such an artsy, avant-garde dress, there was no need for additional oomph. But Paula nonetheless piled on a few more statement pieces in the form of sizable diamond and gemstone earrings and a doorknocker cocktail ring.

Donning such a daringly accented dress was nothing if not bold. But did the risk pay off?

        +3 Those ruffles looked like a couple meringue pies exploded down her dress! Too much bling, too much ruffle, just too much!

    Complete mess..and ti looked even worse on TV if you can imagine that. These artworks of Stephane Roland are better left for European red carpets like Cannes I think.

    I actually really love this, its the best she has ever looked. The shoes are too chunky but everything above them is so lovely I do not mind.

    If the cascading ruffle wasn’t so limp, I would love it. It has such dramatic editorial design, but here it’s flaccid. Her makeup and hair is well done, but she should’ve shunned the earrings – let the dress do its thang.

    This looks so much better when it’s moving! A great big fan on low and she trails behind..standing still..it’s a no for me!

    I can see how it might have fared better without the oversized baubles, and at Cannes. But as an awards presenter at the GGs, it’s just overkill. A tryhard “embarrassment of flounces”, as the post author so eloguently put it.

    All I can see is:
    TOILET PAPER : Paula Patton
    TOILET BRUSH : Jennifer Lawrence

    2 of my worst followed by Heidi Klum (euro trash), Ariel Winters (dated cheap looking dress), Amber Heard (tacky sloppy mess), Sofia Vergara (just no. All wrong), and Naomi Watts (déjà Vu to McQueen)

    For a non-nominee it’s just too over the top and comes off like a bit of a desperate grab for attention. Not into the bride shoes either!

    I did not like this on her – it clung rather than skimmed and the shoes were quite wrong (they are a few seasons old now and look it). Very “look at me” not in a good way for me.

    No, it did not. And just for a change she will be featured among the worst dressed of the night, at least for me.

    Her hair needed to be pulled back into a sleek bun. She needed to ditch the earrings and the ring. She also should have gone for a sandal. To me its not the dress it’s the styling.

    On television the white flounces near her face looked absolutely discolored…possibly from makeup. So many celebrities kissing her cheeks and foundation and/or blush
    making impact with that sheer, porous flounce fabric. The dress looked fabulous on the deigner’s runway!

    Terrible look overall. If you look the ruffles closest to her face look flattened compared to the runway presentation.

    It was too much dress for someone who doesn’t have much of a presence. She just looks overwhelmed by it.

    This kind of high fashion look is always hard to pull off, and when it works well, the effect is always dramatic. On this occasion, it doesn’t quite work. The ruffle just overwhelms her.
