« Kate Winslet sweeps the Golden Globes | Main | Model and baby. »

Everyone keeps asking me, "Sammy, what are your picks for the best and worst Golden Globe fashions?" I've taken some time to let the dresses, bling and updos from Sunday evening resonate, and am finally ready to go out on a limb with my list of Yays and Nays.

No doubt about it, the biggest trend of the night was the fitted fishtail gown. Everyone was wearing them, giving a shout out to Ariel of The Little Mermaid. Some did it right, some did it oh so wrong.

Yay: I'm a fan of fashion risks. That is when the risk fits the risk taker. This may surprise some of you, but my favorite look of the night was Drew Barrymore. Her Dior by John Galliano gown fit in with the whole fishtail under the sea theme, but it was soft and pretty and her big ratty hairstyle (à la Marilyn Monroe/Brigitte Bardot)contrasted the sweet frailty of the gown nicely. Drew actually looked ten years younger and seemed to be reincarnating her former bad girl, poison ivy self.

Fellow fashionistas may disagree, but to me Drew's look was memorable, true to her own personal style, and evoked the old style Hollywood glamour of yesteryear.

Honorable Mentions: Kate Winslet, Kate Beckinsale, Eva Longoria Parker and big winner of the small screen Tina Fey.

Nay: Renée, Renée, Renée. I have not one nice thing to say about Renée Zellweger's Globe getup, and when you don't have anything nice to say, you shouldn't say anything at all.

Honorable Mentions: Marisa Tomei (Arg!) and Glenn Close who looked like a mixture of all four Golden Girls combined. Thank you for being a friend Glenn, but I hated your outfit.

See you at the SAG Awards!

Can't agree with you more on Renee. Your restraint is admirable - nuff said.
