Like most American moms, I spend a fair amount of time reading Dr. Seuss books to my children. A particular quote from And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street comes to mind when I think of last night's Golden Globes fashions, "Did nothing excite you or make your heart beat?"

No. Nothing did. Most everyone looked fine, but the gowns were structurally boring in generally bland colors. So, I decided to play a little game I will call "Fantasy Hollywood Stylist". Here are some picks I would have loved to see at the Globes.

This bronze Armani Prive says "I'm confident enough to leave a little something to the imagination". In an evening over-full with body-skimming gowns, this would have been a refreshing variation and would have looked stunning on Jennifer Lopez.

In this Marchesa gown, Halle Berry would have looked less like she forgot to put on a dress and left the house in her lingerie.

This Marchesa gown would have been an exciting addition to the mermaid silhouette that was popular at this year's show.

January Jones would have been more glamorous but equally daring in this Dior gown.

This gorgeously constructed Steven Colucci sky-blue gown would have been a breath of fresh air in an evening of ho-hum fashion choices and a more fitting choice for Julia Stiles.

Both of these Krikor Jabotian gowns fit in with the night's theme of nudish-neutrals, but are far more exciting from a design and construction point of view than what the stars donned last night on the likes of Scarlett Johansen and Sandra Bullock.

I could definitely see the fashion-forward Tilda Swinton in this Dior gown.

Here's hoping that the Academy Awards have a little more eye candy to offer us fashionistas!


  1. Lindsey! I love it! Wonderful, and you must have had fun!

    Beautiful choices, I love the amazing structure of the Steven Colucci!!

  2. I think it is cool that Colucci is a fine-artist-turned-couture-designer. It really shows in that piece.
