Every year my friend Jill and I get together for the Golden Globes and phone in info to friends/colleagues working the red carpet. This year, however, we watched from our respective residences with our respective munchkins. But an afternoon of heavy texting ensued; my end of the conversation went something like this. A mess—Debra Messing’s hair! Drew’s hair – crazy! (Relapse?) The lovely Freida Pinto from Slumdog Millionaire so pretty in a mustard gown, but what’s up with the draping? Olivia Wild from House…love the lavender Reem Acra gown but, sweetie, you’re on TV. Dial it down a little. That said, Eva Longoria looked very old Hollywood glam in a Reem Acra red number. God I love Alec Baldwin. Miley Cyrus Mom – total train wreck (“vintage BCBG” are you kidding me?). Biggest risk and biggest payoff, Maggie Gyllenhaal’s turquoise leopard Lanvin stunner. So chic! Cameron Diaz looks amazing in totally fab Chanel Haute Couture in pink. Kate Winslet, classic and lovely in YSL. Biggest miss – Marisa Tomei. No, scratch that, Renée Zellweger. And the Golden Globe goes to…Lorraine Schwartz, whose jewels showed up on 99% of all women on the carpet, most notably Beyoncé. Gorgeous Gossip Girl Blake Lively in ill-fitting sequined Nina Ricci number. XO XO.

Debra Messing’s hair is ridiculous.
Loving all of the chunky jewels.
Thumbs up from the waist up on EVA mendes. Not loving the rest. Gotta add that my phone changed her name to EVA menses. Hahaha.
E coverage WAY better than NBC.
Nancy is tanner than Beyonce.
Maggie g I like. Dan says she looks like a throw pillow.
I did like kates 20s rhinestones at the hip.
Lorraine Schwartz cleaned up this year. Where’s neil?
Mcdreamy is looking good.
Let’s just say JLo not successfully living in the past.
Enough with the neck hair, Sting.
Selma looks like she’s wearing a dirty ace bandage.
Laura Dern with the frightening hemline and dress for that matter.
Sally Field did her own hair.
Maggie G is on now and maybe her shoulder pouf is a little much.
Adding Laura Linney to my best-dressed list.
