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. chanelpinkKate 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.
