Golden Globes going Green?

I don't watch award shows. I think they're pompous, boring, and much much too long. But I do like the red carpet events that take place before the shows. After that, I usually click onto something far more interesting, like Spongebob Squarepants...

Last night's event was no different, in fact, once I found out that the Transformers movie was on, that was it. I was off to cheer for Optimus Prime and the rest of the Autobots.

So my information on the 68th Annual Golden Globes is completely derived from E!News this morning. In celebration of Martin Luther King's birthday, I get to add one more day to my long weekend, so here I am at ye ole' keyboard, banging out my thoughts on red carpet trends.

This year the red carpet went green...literally. In a sea of black and neutrals, this was a welcomed change. My favorite was Catherine Zeta Jones, who looked fabulous in a Monique Lhuillier emerald gown and extremely happy with the news of husband Michael Douglas being cancer free. Good for them!

Okay, enough chitchat. I'll let the fashion speak for itself. Enjoy and Happy Monday!

I know, it's not green, but Jennifer Lopez is simply stunning in this beautiful white Zuhair Murad gown covered in crystals!

I have to say I wasn't a great fan of all the GG fashion. A few Stylists are slipping on the job.

I agree, there were a lot of sloppy looks on the red carpet. Dresses that didn't quite fit or flow right, etc. Maybe the Oscars will be better.

OT: Cheryl, send me pix of yourself doing The Pose and I'll post 'em :-)

Green is a magnificent color, but I've found it to be a real challenge to incorporate into fashion - bravo to these designers.
