Golden Globes Style: The Maxi

Don't get me wrong, I love a great Marchesa and Oscar de la Renta masterpiece but it was the maxi that killed it at the Golden Globes. There's something super elegant about a maxi-dress that requires a certain level of class from the wearer and these ladies are definitely pro's:

Leighton's Gossip Girl character Blair would be so envious of this Burberry Prorsum dress she'd probably get her minions to sabotage it somehow. I love the romantic sleeves and cheeky little leg exposure although I'm not too sure about the hair and shoes - maybe she should have gone for a sleek up-do and less showy shoes? I absolutely adore dress though so she still gets a thumbs up from me.

Anne and Angelina are in a whole league of their own, I literally love these looks SO much it makes me want to cry or do something equally as heinous. Anne has really come into her own over the past few years and this Armani Prive gown looks stunning. Admittedly I could do without the puffy shoulder pads but the hair and minimal accessories are down to perfection. Angelina is pretty much a goddess. I've never loved emerald green more than I do right now - everything about this outfit is beautiful. There are few actresses who could wear this dress and look this great, Brad Pitt you are one lucky, lucky man. 

What do you think of these looks and who do you think had the Golden Globes style down to perfection?

PS. Well done to Natalie Portman for winning the gong for Best Actress in Black Swan, can't wait to see it!

  1. Leighton is actually my favourite, and I quite love the hair! But you're so right about Anne - she's just a complete babe.

  2. Love the three of them, especially the colour of Angelina's gown. Glad Natalie Portman won, have yet to see Black Swan but really want to!
    Oh Comely is quite a nice read, a change to the usual glossy mags! xx

  3. My favourites of the evening were Angelina, Claire Danes and Emma Stone :) Nice blog, I adore your title :)


  4. SO weird to think this occurred round the corner from where I was last night!
    The visa I applied for which is for work experience, internships or students is the J1 visa and you need a sponsor company for it..I used the company INTRAX and I would NOT recommend them at all..there is another company called BUNAC who are supposed to be very good though :)
