ANNE HATH A GOLDEN GLOBE, AND A RED FACE - THANK GOD FOR THE CHANEL


No one will argue that the Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hills Hilton on a chilly LA afternoon, was a grand spectacle. It was dramatic in many ways, wins, speeches, awkward moments, but 'the fashion' (thank you Kelly Osbourne) was fairly tame.
There was a gaggle of the same red dress, and variants of the sweetheart neckline and mermaid silhouettes to beat the band.
One gal who stood out from the crowd (much to my chagrin) was Anne Hathaway - winner of Best Supporting Actress for Les Mis - in an archive Chanel Couture Spring 2009 look.
This gently crunchy looking two-piece rose above the sartorial choices around her. So simple. So elegant. She is the best attention seeker of them all.

DID JENNIFER LAWRENCE RECOVER FROM BAT-WING VALENTINO-GATE IN ROMANTIC PRABAL GURUNG?


After a hideous display of styling (if you can even call it styling) at the previous night's People's Choice Awards, Jennifer Lawrence made somewhat of a comeback at yesterday's Critics' Choice Movie Awards in Santa Monica in a dark, romantic gown by Prabal Gurung.
Where I love the mix of texture and technique in this draped gown with leather and sheer chiffon neckline, it suffers from over-design.

JUDGEY-WUDGEY: PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS - CROTCH SKIMMING AND BAD HAIR NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE

Before I get on to more looks from the Critics' Choice Awards, there are a few looks to be weighed in from the previous evening's People's Choice.

Attention-seeking is as attention-seeking does, and no one does it better than Glee girl, Lea Michele. If she's not baring her sternum down to the naval, she's got those high-kicking stage school legs out for all and sundry to ogle.


How could she do this to Elie Saab, and how could the creator of twinkly dreams agree to do this to one of its gowns. It's SO BAD. Sheer boobs, crotch-skimming hemline, rendered in hot pink. Not classy.

DEVIL WEARS PRADA REUNION: HATHAWAY & BLUNT EMBRACE CRITICS' CHOICE


I'm very much a fan of Emily Blunt across the board. She can do drama, comedy and time-and-time again hits it on the red carpet.
At last night's Critics' Choice Movie Awards, Emily wore an ivory midi shift with an embellished neckline and strap detail by Miu Miu.
THAT length works here within the '30s/40s glamour vibe of the encrusted high neckline, waved faux-bob and red lip.

ONE, PLEASE! MARION COTILLARD WERKS THE HELL OUT OF NOT-DIOR FOR A CHANGE

Ahhh, that hits the spot.


Praise the Gods for Marion Cotillard and her effortless day-to-night style. I cannot stamp my feet loud enough about how well this one (or a very savvy stylist) picks a dress that works for evening but isn't a pile of sequins. That is why she works so well as a face of Dior. This easy glamour is the essence of the house.
