Although I am somewhat mindful of who takes home the awards, my primary interest in the Golden Globes has always been fashion related. Some of my favorite dresses of all time have been revealed on the Golden Globe’s red carpet– Jessica Alba in her stunning melon Oscar de la Renta gown in 2013, Mila Kunis in her green Vera Wang masterpiece in 2011, Eva Longoria’s black beauty in 2012 (and 2013), etc.
Maybe it’s because I’m a pageant girl, but when it comes to fashion, gowns are my absolute favorite. Absolute favorite. I’m a sucker for jewel tones, I love my crystals, and daring neck and back lines are genius in my book. Here are my top 10 favorites for this year:
10. Nancy O’Dell
This color is magnificent The train is perfection. The embellished neckline is beautiful. Side Note: One of my evening gowns was very similar to this, so I may be a bit partial to the design. It screams sophistication and elegance– in my humble opinion.
9. Uma Thurman in Atelier Versace
That halter top neckline. Stunning.
8. Kristin Chenoweth
I’ve already heard several criticisms of her gown, but quite frankly, I adore it. It’s conservative, but a form-fitting gem nonetheless.
7. Taylor Swift in Carolina Herrera
Love this. I adore the color blocking. She’s shining like the princess she is.
6. Mila Kunis in Gucci
Mila Kunis never disappoints on the red carpet, and this year was no different. This metallic dress is just exquisite, from the embellished bodice to the flowing chiffon hemline.
5. Kate Beckinsale
Oh, what I wouldn’t give to own this gown! Love the form-fitted silhouette, the gunmetal color, and Kate’s hair and makeup. Ugh, gorgeous.
4. Olivia Wilde in Gucci
It shouldn’t be legal to look this fabulous in your third trimester. This green dress is the epitome of sleek and sexy red carpet style.
3. Amber Heard in Gucci
I’m such a sucker for sapphire. The slit and the bodice of Amber’s gown are just impeccable.
2. Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren
I didn’t fall in love with too much bold (ie. non-jewel toned) color this year… with the obvious exception of Lupita’s Ralph Lauren crimson masterpiece. Straight off the the Spring 2014 runway, the combination of its elegant cape and ravishing color make this a gown to remember.
1. Leslie Mann
As soon as I saw Leslie, she immediately took my Best Dressed top spot. Everything about this gown–and again, forgive the pageant girl inside me– is perfection. You have black, you have lace, and you have peplum… not to mention that one of the funniest faces in Hollywood is rocking it. It’s classic, sexy, and shows off her incredibly slim figure. I’m obsessed, and if I decide to get a new gown for Miss Florida, this dress will be my muse.
So what did y’all think? Who landed in your Best Dressed top spot this year?
Have a great week, pretties!
I have to say, the fashion is why I watch…there's just something about red carpet looks that catch my attention.
When I saw Kate Beckinsale, my mouth dropped, that dress…whoa! Stunning!
I also think that Tina Fey's opening gown was gorgeous, wow, I loved it!!
Amazing list! <3
Agreed! It's the elegance of it all, I think. America loves our Hollywood royalty! 🙂 And yes… Kate's dress was AMAZING. Ugh, so so so gorgeous! Can't wait to see the fashion at the Oscars. Hope you're having a great weekend!
I liked Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren and Kate Beckensale's dress.
They were both stunning. Absolutely stunning!!!
There were some fabulous gowns on the red carpet tonight! Nancy's dress is by far my favorite and Olivia looks amazing in her emerald green gown!!
Agreed! And I know… it's not fair that someone THAT pregnant looks THAT amazing! Gorg!
I think Uma's dress is fabulous!! But Kate wore her dress the best.
Right?! Both amazing dresses. Kate's makeup, hair, and accessories were absolute perfection, too. She was just on fire.
Taylor Swift and Mila Kunis look stunning!! I love the both of them. c:
Two of my favorites (on and off the red carpet) for sure! Hope you're having a great weekend 🙂
i loved the variety of dresses. usually there's a trend of color or something, but i liked so many of them
I know! I was asked what my favorite "trend" was, and honestly, I couldn't really pinpoint anything! Loved the variety… so many beautiful and unique dresses. Hope the Oscars is the same way!
Excellent selection the dresses are so gorgeous they look glam.
Agreed! If only I could have access to these people's closets…. not fair! 🙂
I had no idea Olivia Wilde was pregnant
Me neither, honestly. But yep, definitely pregnant lol Hope you're having a great weekend!
My list is going up on Wednesday! It was a great night for fashion!

Well said! SUCH a great night for fashion!
I love Kate Beckinsale's dress, simply stunning 🙂
Couldn't agree more. Everything about her look, from the gown to her makeup to her hair, was just incredible. Such a beauty!
It's so hard to choose which dress is my favorite – but I think I have to go with Olivia Wilde! I can't believe how flawless she looks & while pregnant at that! Talk about a motherly glow!
We hope you have a fabulous week!
Right?! Simply stunning! I hope I can channel some inner Olivia when I'm expecting (which is not for like 20 years hopefully). Hope you're having a great weekend 🙂
Your commentary is fantastic and very much appreciated!
I'm glad you liked it! Hope you're having a great weekend, Caroline! 🙂
Lupita and Olivia Wilde looked AMAZING! I also loved Emilia Clarke and Margot Robbie!
Emilia and Margot looked FABULOUS, as well! There were so many standouts (in a good way) this year. It was hard to narrow it down to 10! Normally I only like 2 or 3 gowns… loving how celebs are stepping their game up! Can't wait for the Oscars!
Let's go to the Golden Globes next year, k?
Deal. Sheila, you're coming, too.
All of them look lovely but my faves are Kate Beckinsale and Amber Heard, amazing dresses!
I know! Kate and Amber looked flawless. Love how both of them styled their hair and makeup… really added to the overall elegance of the look!
They look brilliant especially Leslie Mann she looks stunning!
Agreed! And it definitely doesn't hurt that she's absolutely hilarious. I love her, and I want her gown! Hope you're having a great weekend 🙂
I agree, Leslie's look landed #1 in my books as well.. simply gorgeous!
