The start studded red carpet at 2013 Golden Globes saw the anticipated (lace, tulle, thigh high slits) unexpected (hello steel grey gowns!) classic red carpet glamour (the red hot gowns) and some pretty washed out styles (What happened Amy Adams!). Let's cut to the chase and start with the best dressed stars on the red carpet-
Anne Hathaway - Anne Hathaway had a great night, not only as a winner on stage but as a winner on the red carpet. Her Chanel gown did justice to her svelte figure and pixie hair cut only added to the sleek charm of the gorgeous number.
Kate Hudson - Kate looks amazing (but then, when does she not!) in a mod long sleeved, embroidered collared Alexander McQueen gown with beautiful details on the waist
Claire Danes - Consecutive Golden Globes win and consecutive red carpet 'best' for Danes. She stole the show with her red hot Versace gown. Two thumbs up for prefect hair and makeup too!
Emily Blunt - The golden beauty looks statuesque in Michael Kors gown and deep rose earrings.
Amanda Seyfried - The custom Givenchy gown in blush does justice to Amanda's ethereal beauty. The simplicity of the gown makes it a winner on the Globes red carpet
Shaun Robinson - Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson is au currant with the collor trend for 2013 - with the emerald gown that fits her like a glove.
Julianne Hough in a frothy Monique Lhuillier gown looks positively radiant, Jessica Alba can do no wrong (even when she does!) in beautiful coral-red Oscar da le Renta gown and some major bling on her neck! Kaley Cuoco stuck to the tried and tested (and successful) style of Zuhair Murad in this nude-blush gown.
Jennifer Garner (in a stunning Vivienne Westwood Haute Couture) gown makes it to the best dressed along with another Jennifer (Lawrence) who looked like a edgy princess in a Christian Dior Haute Couture red dress with ball gown skirt and bustier bodice.
Now comes the worst of the Golden Globes red carpet. Right on top is Jennifer Lopez - not because she was wearing a lace gown discarded by a ice skater for her final performance but because we were expecting so much better from her. Debra Messing made a total mess when she decided to make a red carpet gown by ruched curtains of an outdoor wedding tent. And we are not sure if Jessica Chastain was excited to win the globe or embarrassed to have her washed out ill fitting gown and her horrendous hair style get the spot light. Talk about having a bad hair day! It looked like she shaved her hair line for an upcoming role! Lena Dunham was totally uncomfortable and visibly awkward in her beautiful gown. It was not a match made in red carpet heaven. Her walk on the stage showed one has to wear high heels at least once before going on stage on national TV - waddle walk award anyone?
Another washed out style on red carpet belonged to Amy Adams - what happened to deep colors that complimented her coloring in past red carpets?
Eva Longoria also joins the worst dressed crowd with her awkwardly slit gown. Cleavage or thigh - pick one Eva! Rachel Weisz may have the James Bond, but she surely is in need of a stylist. Her outfit started as a sheer gown but by the time it was done it got confused between a cocktail dress or a red carpet gown and it ended up looking like a haphazardly put together ensemble that was saved only by sheer grace of Weisz.
