Glamour & Gowns :: Golden Globes Red Carpet 2013

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kicked off the 70th annual  Golden Globe Awards last night which highlighted the acclaimed television series and motion pictures of 2012. Those of us who write style blogs, follow fashion trends and are deeply rooted in what’s hot (and what's not) were probably more interested in the 2-hour pop and circumstance of the red carpet promenade than in who won best actor in a television series. For the record, it was red headed hottie Damian Lewis from Homeland -- a well deserved win for Sergeant Brody. 

Here are Rue Le Chat's top 5 picks (+1) for best dressed at the Golden Globes:

Amy Adams was simply stunning in a blush-colored gown by Marchesa. The mermaid silhouette encompassed a sweeping combination of soft lace and whimsical tulle that channeled old Hollywood starlets such as Katharine Hepburn and Bette Davis. The actress described the color as “ballerina pink.” Adams was fresh, flawless and unforgettable. I crush on designs by Marchesa and this dress did not disappoint. By far my favorite from the red carpet. 

Jessica Alba made a splash on the red carpet in cantaloupe. Designed by style legend Oscar de la Renta, this mermaid-esque gown was one of my favorites. Alba paired the pre-fall 2013 stunner with an illuminating Harry Winston necklace (swoon) and coral Roger Vivier clutch. Her matching lips were a little too coordinated for me, but I was crushing on the soft curls draped over one shoulder. Apparently, I have a thing for mermaids. 

There were two words that best described Katharine McPhee last night: sex and appeal. McPhee strutted along the red carpet in a black figure-fitting gown by Olivier Theyskens for Theory. She looked flawless with a nude lip and her smokey eyes enhanced her natural pizzazz. McPhee's messy (but perfect) bun did not distract from her plunging neckline, thigh-high slit or sex kitten high heels. I was all over these heels -- a perfect example of what I like to call “taxi to table” or in LA “driver to dinner table” footwear. Now, is it just me or is McPhee suffering from a case of the cankles? Yikes. 

Morena Baccarin looked radiant in Valentino. The couture gown, with a sweeping midnight train, was paired with Bulgari jewels and captured Baccarin’s graceful stride down the red carpet. Her soft makeup and cropped curls framed her petite face and added a touch of old Hollywood glamour that so many women were channeling last night.

Kaley Cuoco’s nude Zuhair Murad gown with layers of tulle and an abundance of embroidered lace was soft meets sexy. Complete with a satin sash, the gown sadly did not receive much airtime. But for me, it was stunning nonetheless. I could have done without Cuoco's deep plum lip which was too dark for her fair complexion. 

And who could forget the best dressed Golden Globes host?! The winner was none other than Entertainment Tonight co-host Nancy O’Dell. There was something so simple yet so strikingly beautiful about her floor-length, ocean blue gown. The long-sleeve statement dress hugged her in all of the must-have places and sparkled at every turn.

Who were your picks for best dressed at the 70th Golden Globes? Surely, not Lucy Lui's elderly curtain-dress circa-Scarlett O'Hara?!? Heaven forbid.
