Red Carpet Coverage from the Golden Globes

January 12th, 2009 by Rebecca Harper Editor

You can now find red carpet coverage from last night’s Golden Globes on Hulu. With previews of the events leading up to the big event, red carpet interviews, fashion recaps, and winners’ reactions, our spotlight on Red Carpet Events: The Golden Globes offers the best moments of the evening.

With this being the return of the Golden Globes — the big party was cancelled last year due to the writers’ strike — we turned to fashion expert Lawrence Zarian for his take on the night’s trends, and who wore them best. Zarian is the host of TV Guide Network’s The Fashion Team and is the network’s official Red Carpet fashion expert for the 2009 Award Season. You can catch him on the TV Guide Network as a fashion panelist on the Golden Globe Awards Fashion Wrap with Lisa Rinna, premiering Monday, January 12 at 8/7c.

According to Zarian, the look of the night was slicked-back hair. “It goes day to night; office to opera — and it takes a perfect picture,” he said. Which divas wore it best? “Eva Longoria Parker was absolutely stunning, but you also saw the look on Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek.”

We also saw a lot of off-the-shoulder dresses at the Golden Globes, from one-shoulder styles to halters and strapless designs on the likes of Anne Hathaway, Penelope Cruz and Kate Winslet. In addition, purple and aubergine turned heads on the red carpet. “Black is back, in a good way. Kate Winslet was pretty spectacular,” Zarian said. “And Jennifer Lopez was a goddess in gold Marchesa.”

In terms of jewelry, the focus was on the ear and the starlets proved last night that the earring doesn’t have to match the gown, Zarian said. Bold earrings ruled the red carpet, with Kate Beckinsale and Amy Adams wearing them best, he added.

Among the guys, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jon Hamm were at the top of Zarian’s best-of list. “Leo always dresses to impress, and this time he went with a classic tux and classic black tie,” he said. “Jon Hamm dressed in period bow tie as his Mad Men character.”

Another star showed up in character at the Golden Globes: Drew Barrymore, who presented alongside her Grey Gardens co-star, Jessica Lange. “Drew was so much fun, she was dressing for her new role in the HBO movie. I think she looked like Ginger from Gilligan’s Island, in ice-blue silk Christian Dior custom-designed by John Galliano. She had that one-cocktail-too-many Marilyn Monroe hair.”

As for the night’s misses, Zarian had to call out Ugly Betty star America Ferrera, simply because her dress was “too old for her, in part because of a wide beaded collar. It became about the dress, and not about her. It was just too much dress for her,” he said.

We have dozens more clips available on the Red Carpet Events: The Golden Globes spotlight page, where you can check out all the red carpet fashion and catch the night’s best moments, including Kate Winslet’s endearing speech and Tracey Morgan’s hilarious acceptance on behalf of 30 Rock .
