Admiring from the Backseat: Golden Globe Awards 2013 Edition

Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen

Golden Globes 2013 turned out to be quite the night! Honourary Backseat Styler D joined us for this year’s festivities and we spent the evening critiquing the red carpet fashions, accusing each other of cheating in the GG pool, and playing Amy Poehler and Tina Fey’s Golden Globes drinking game. Lots of controversy, to say the least. So much so, in fact, that we couldn’t even narrow the best dressed field down to 10.

While the red carpet as a whole left much to be desired, favourites like Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen, Anne Hathaway in Chanel and Julianne Moore in Tom Ford were shoo-ins. Ladies in red Jennifer Lawrence (in Christian Dior) and Naomi Watts (in Zac Posen) also made the cut, as did Kerry Washington in an embellished Miu Miu frock. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked drop-dead gorgeous in a bow-adorned Saint Laurent gown, while Julianna Margulies and Michelle Dockery both took risks with their Pucci and Alexandre Vauthier gowns that paid off.

The final spot in our top ten best dressed of the night was a toss-up between Rachel Weisz in a sheer, polka-dotted number by Louis Vuitton (S’s pick) and Katharine McPhee‘s revealing Theyskens’ Theory dress (T’s pick). Rather than settle the issue via a breakdance fight, we decided to expand our list to 11 and call it a night.

Admiring from the Backseat: Glee Edition – Lea Michele and Dianna Agron

I’ve been lamenting the Glee cast’s desperate need for stylists ever since they started hitting red carpets, and it seems my wish may have been granted. That, or they’ve finally grown out of the cheesy prom-ready dresses they’ve been assaulting awards shows with over the last two years.

Stars Lea Michele and Dianna Agron each stepped out this week looking more chic than I’ve ever seen them, the former in a black and gold lace number from Pucci‘s Resort 2012 collection and the latter in that Mary Katrantzou Fall 2011 dress. They’re not all the way there yet, but Lea’s jazz hands and Dianna’s poor shoe choice aside, it looks like the Glee kids are growing up sartorially, right before our eyes.

What do you think of their latest looks – do they deserve gold stars?
