I am not going to be mean and talk about those who I thought missed the boat in terms of their fashion choices. I want this instead to be in praise of those who got it right, looked amazing, and glowed. Here's my top ten in no particular order. ---
Nashville star and nominated this year, Hayden Panettiere looked amazing in her simple Roberto Cavalli mermaid style gown. I love the fact that her makeup and hair looked so natural. By the way, if you haven't checked out the show Nashville on ABC, please do, it's amazing. We need more shows like this on network TV.
Claire Danes, a winner for Best TV Drama Actress in Homeland, looked amazing for a woman who just recently gave birth. Her red hot Versace halter gown was the perfect hint of sexy paired with long blonde tresses and smoky eyes.
Connie Britton, also from Nashville, sparkled in a strapless silver gown. Her long locks didn't fail to impress; they never do. I think a necklace would have been too much; the bracelets are just lovely. She never misses.
Wowza! Taylor Swift looked lovely in eggplant; the dress fits her well, and the chandelier drop earrings that much were a nice touch. This ensemble was a welcome switch for Swift who usually favors red or more neutral colors.
Stacy Kiebler looks simply awesome in this black dress with horizontal silver stripes. I also wouldn't mind that handsome accessory that she has on her arm. Va-va-voom---- George Clooney, ladies!
I loved the texture on Jennifer Garner's red dress, what an amazingly clean, sexy look for the mom of three, and the wife of Argo Director Ben Affleck. I cannot wait to see her on the big screen again.
Glee star Lea Michele looked absolutely stunning in this sparkly white halter gown. The slit is amazing, the shoes are amazing; this is such a put together look. By the way, Glee is totally back this season, my favorite season since Season 2. It's must watch TV.
The color of the gown, her skin, her hair, Jessica Alba was spot on with this entire outfit. Didn't she just have two kids? She looks phenomenal. I love the sweetheart neckline and how the dress is fitted through her waist and hips and how it flares out at the bottom. She is just gorgeous, and no one seemed to care that she wasn't nominated for anything.
Yes, Sally Field, I really like you. This navy gown was perfect for her figure, and she seriously makes my best dressed list in a big way. She sometimes looks a bit of a mess, but here, I just want to honor her here, and take a cue from Anne Hathaway as she honored her during her acceptance speech.
Helen Mirren always makes such smart red carpet choices, she's never caught off guard, she always looks age appropriate, and she is truly a part of that "old Hollywood glamour". But make no mistake, there is nothing old about her; she continues to impress.
