Golden Globes best dressed

"Adornment, what a science! Beauty, what a weapon! Modesty, what elegance!" — Coco Chanel

WE TIVOED THE Golden Globes so we could fast forward our way through to find out who won. And I wanted to see who wore what. There were only a few dresses I love-loved, but I hunted till I found 10.

Emily Blunt
Although the color isn't particularly flattering on Emily, this dress affords a tasteful way to show a little skin.

Stacy Keibler
Simple, classic, understated. A necklace like Jessica Alba's would have been a great addition, though. 

Glenn Close
It might not be obvious, but this dress is deep indigo. She looks fabulous. My only cavil is that it's almost identical to the green one she wore last year at the Oscars, although you can't blame her for sticking to a formula that works so well.

Zooey Deschanel
I love Zooey's dress. It's a timeless classic; it's effortless, yet still fresh and young — which isn't necessarily the easiest balance to attain. My objection is that the top is cut too low. If the bodice were an inch and a half higher on top, she would have been perfection itself and my #1 pick. 

Penelope Cruz
Penelope hardly ever puts a foot wrong when it comes to red carpet dresses. I pretty much always love what she wears.

Jennifer Lopez
Very va va va voom, but Jenny from the Hood is completely covered which isn't always the case with her. This time she got it right.

Hayden Panettiere
Classic and still youthful, Hayden looked lovely — much better than Amy Adams who wore a similar dress in a disastrous color.

Claire Danes
Claire proves it's possible to wear a halter dress and look elegant, not over-exposed and cheesy — as opposed to Miss Chastain.

Anne Hathaway
Does it get any better than this? Okay, I would have added a simple, but stand-out necklace, but why quibble. Anne is exquisite all the time, and that night, the reincarnation of Audrey Hepburn.

Jessica Alba
I had a hard time choosing between Anne's dress and Jessica's, but in the end I gave it up to Jessica because the color is luscious — and ravishing against her skin, and her hair is gorgeous. She is altogether flawless and breathtaking IMHO.
