In a sea of black, how do we choose who wore it best?
As it turns out, making distinctions between best- and worst-dressed at the 2018 Golden Globes wasn’t — at least for me — affected much by the theme of the evening. The best were stunning, well-suited to the attendee’s body and personality, and on-trend.
The worst looked like belted trash bags.
But back to the best. My way-ahead winner of the night was Allison Janney in Mario Dice.
The not-too-in-your-face butterfly design on the top gives it flair, especially those hip-hugging wings. But the overall fit is the real star, emphasizing Janney’s already willowy frame.
Next up: Katherine Langford of 13 Reasons Why in Prada, accented with Chopard jewels, and diamond star-shaped hair clips by Jennifer Behr.
I have my issues with the series, but none with this look — which, ironically, mirrors the tone of Langford’s character. It’s melancholy and sparkling at the same time, dramatic and understated, hopeful yet resigned. Someone put a lot of thought into the entire ensemble, and the work was worth it.
Catherine Zeta-Jones had the hardest job of the night and did her time in flawless Zuhair Murad Couture. Her Lorraine Schwartz jewelry stood out as well, as the best representation of the event’s emerald trend.
Finally, Christina Hendricks in Christian Siriano somehow managed to simultaneously rock capri pants and a ball gown. There were a lot of pants on the red carpet, including those shrouded with skirts, but Hendricks’ ensemble would have worked outside of a larger trend any day.
