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?

    Love it! Best she’s ever looked!

    • noo January 13, 2014 at 07:07 #

      I completely agree!

    This is so much try. On TV it was bad and in pictures its even more so. She is not pulling this off.

    • Malinda Jane January 13, 2014 at 04:23 #

      I agree. It looked really crazy on tv. One of my least favorites of the night.

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

    • Joana January 13, 2014 at 13:14 #

      It looked even worse when she was presenting. So much flounce.

  3. jessicamarantelli January 13, 2014 at 04:17 #

    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.

    • Yeliz January 13, 2014 at 10:30 #

      Completely agreed. This was one of my least favourites.

    • Noemi January 13, 2014 at 18:05 #

      I agree. And with all that fabric she should have kept everything else simple, those earrings are nonsense.

  4. Alina January 13, 2014 at 04:18 #

    IMO, it doesn’t work. The shoes are way too…big.

  5. Prudence January 13, 2014 at 04:20 #

    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.

  6. J January 13, 2014 at 04:24 #

    The model looks sublime strutting down the catwalk… ? Anyone wants to jump in?

  7. Laurie January 13, 2014 at 04:28 #

    Love this dress, but not on her. It comes off a bit tranny.

  8. easyBlake January 13, 2014 at 04:43 #

    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.

  9. Beth Rodrigues January 13, 2014 at 04:47 #

    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!

  10. Markness January 13, 2014 at 04:54 #

    Trying hard. Who is she anyway? Kidding aside, I think she can’t carry this type of dress. Leave this to the experts Paula.

  11. Serenity January 13, 2014 at 05:22 #

    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.

    • Serenity January 13, 2014 at 05:22 #

      *eloquently*

  12. yesferdinand January 13, 2014 at 05:39 #

    Great dress. Wrong person.

  13. Ky • twopretzels.com January 13, 2014 at 06:06 #

    The styling was completely off. From the earrings to the ring, to the bracelet and the shoes – it was just too much.

  14. Jaime January 13, 2014 at 06:15 #

    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)

  15. Tess January 13, 2014 at 07:35 #

    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!

  16. regina January 13, 2014 at 07:54 #

    Not classy enough to pull this off, made painfully obvious by her choice of jewels and shoes.

  17. Fiona - Perth January 13, 2014 at 08:06 #

    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.

  18. Ramona Oana January 13, 2014 at 10:23 #

    I dislike her shoes !!

  19. Sanya January 13, 2014 at 10:27 #

    There is just to much going on here. Don’t like it.

  20. amy January 13, 2014 at 12:10 #

    horrible shoes, overworked dress, over-accessorizing.

  21. gabis January 13, 2014 at 13:18 #

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

  22. dee January 13, 2014 at 13:53 #

    I like that she took a risk and wore something bold and dramatic. I don’t hate it.

  23. Mare January 13, 2014 at 15:25 #

    They should burn this dress :)

  24. kathryn January 13, 2014 at 15:55 #

    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.

  25. tom January 13, 2014 at 16:20 #

    amazing dress on the wrong person.

  26. Tresstine January 13, 2014 at 16:31 #

    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!

  27. kane January 13, 2014 at 17:03 #

    I like the dress and the ring.
    I hate the earrings and the fact that we can see the shoes.

  28. Kelly January 13, 2014 at 19:32 #

    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.

  29. Emily January 13, 2014 at 22:17 #

    Not a horrible look had the shoes not killed it…

  30. Anne Gallagher January 15, 2014 at 23:32 #

    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.
