The Golden Globes 2020

Apparently trained red dresses are big this year – Helen Mirren did it best, Olivia Coleman did it the worst:

Trying too hard – The eye doesn’t know where to rest — on Jennifer Lopez’ Christmas wrap or Gwyneth Paltrow’s absent slip and pointless jewellery…; Kerry Washington just needed to start over again, and Joey King tried to mix sex with avant-garde, unsuccessfully…

Better safe than sorry: They fit and they are flattering… and frankly, a bit boring

ALMOST worked… why the peek-a-boo midriff on Taylor Swift’s dress – it doesn’t add anything; from the waist up Zoe Kravitz looks amazing, but your eyes are too busy connecting the dots on her skirt; love the dress Reese, hate your hair and makeup; As for Charlize, I want to like it – I really do, but I just can’t…

BRAVA! – Kirsten Dunst’s sweet and sexy dress evokes the 1930s while Zoey Deutch’s statuesque 70s style is perfection; Phoebe Waller-Bridge wins best pant suit of the night (including all the men), and I can’t stop looking at Kaitlyn Dever’s print dress, offset by her really toned down makeup and hair – really well styled!

And that’s my two cents…
