2012 Golden Globes: Who judges the judges?

Posted in Awards by Nneoma Ulu on January 16, 2012

It’s awards season and the best and worst dressed lists are doing the rounds following the Golden Globes. There were some notable wins (Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams, Lea Michele) and some surprising disappointments (Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Sarah Michelle Gellar) but rather than the usual round-up of who looked hot and who didn’t, my Golden Globes spotlight falls on two well known fashion commentators – Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne. Now, I’m an avid watcher of E! Entertainment’s Fashion Police led by the harsh yet hilarious Joan Rivers with her band of questionably stylish co-hosts – Kelly, Giuliana and the dashing George Kostiopoulos and I pay particular attention during awards season to catch their honest and candid reviews of the red carpet victors and losers. However, it strikes me that two of her panel often get it so wrong when it comes to dressing for the red carpet…

Giuliana always goes for floor length numbers that accentuate her long, lean frame which works for her. Sadly, this dress looks like she’s wearing a neck brace… and the heavy-looking lace detail seems just a little bit much for her slight frame.

Oh Kelly, what saddens me about this attempt is the potential. The colour of her custom-made Zac Posen number is perfect for the red carpet but there is something so unflattering about the fabric and the anglular silhouette that just doesn’t work. And Kelly, that purple/grey rinse in your hair is just not working. Fingers crossed these two get it right for the upcoming Academy Awards… or they are at serious risk or losing their fashion credentials.
