I felt that this year mainly the girls who played it safe were receiving all the glory for their Golden Globe dresses. For example, yes, Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock looked pretty...but boring. The Golden Globes and Academy Awards are a chance to get away with an extravagant gown, not a pretty dress.
In my opinion, Kate Hudson, Drew Barrymore, Vera Farmiga, and Sofía Vergara we by far the best dressed of the night. Their gowns (yes, gowns, not dresses) had almost an architectural structure to them. They resembled art rather than clothing. Absolutely beautiful.
The masterminds behind these dresses were Atelier Versace (Drew Barrymore), Marchesa (Kate Hudson), Dolce & Gabanna (Vera Farmiga), and last but not least Carolina Herrera (Sofía Vergara).
I would also like to give a shout out to those who didn't quite make the top four but were also fabulous.
Marion Cotillard-Christian Dior
Penélope Cruz-Giorgio Armani Privé
