Guest Post | Golden Globe Recap | Fatima Tan'ia

The 69th Annual Golden Globes was the first major award show of 2012. This past Sunday night, the hottest celebrities in Hollywood gathered on the red carpet to celebrate one of the biggest nights in movies, television, and of course my absolute favorite, fashion. Celebrities like Charlize Theron and Sophia Vergara exuded fabulosity by showcasing a major wow factor and then there were those that completely missed the mark. Here are our best and worst dressed from the Golden Globes:

 Charlize Theron wore a stunning Dior Couture gown adorned with Cartier diamonds and a Cartier vintage headband. 

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara nailed a custom made Vera Wang mermaid style dress which was one of the most sought after trends for the Golden Globes. She completed her look with Casadei heels and $5 million dollars worth of Harry Winston Jewelery. 

Reese Witherspoon was absolutely gorgeous as she sported a red Zac Posen mermaid dress with a sweetheart neckline. 

Julianne Moore opted for an amazing black Chanel Gown. She completed her look with emerald and diamond earrings and a whopping 9 carat diamond ring by Fred Leighton. 

Jessica Alba wore pale lavender Gucci strapless gown with a train and Bulgari Jewelry. 

Worst: These next few celebs left me speechless and not in a good way

Elle MacPherson(Zac Posen dress looked like a prom dress gone wrong….way too much tulle), Angelina Jolie (red folded accent on her Atelier Versace dress which mimicked a bib) , Tilda Swinton (Her matching frocs did nothing for her pale skin tone), Sarah Michelle Gellar (reminded me of an art project gone terribly wrong) and Dianna Agron (laser cut swans were way too busy and the tiered skirt added to the confusion). 

The trends for this year 69th Annual Golden Globes were mermaid dresses, cut out backs, plunging necklines, pastels, combination of black and white as well as dark blues. The Italian Designer heavy hitters were Gucci, Prada, Armani Prive andVersace. There were some stars that took risk but most played it safe this year.
