Some Good Bling But Mostly Bland At The 2009 Golden Globes

Well, we’re exhausted from staying up watching the Golden Globes and what can we say? Honestly, the clothes were rather uninspiring for the most part. Besides wondering if Drew Barrymore’s hair and makeup people got drunk with Marisa Tomei’s stylist or the economy had some effect on red carpet fashion, we’re not exactly sure what happened but here are the best-dressed gals and the big trends they represent:

Biggest Trend on the Red Carpet: Statement Necklaces. This is a trend with some serious staying power since it comes around every few years. Eva Mendes, Beyonce, and Christina Applegate all wowed in their gorgeous gowns (Dior, Elie Saab, and Roberto Cavalli, respectively) but everyone’s eyes were on the Lorraine Schwartz necklaces about their throats.

Prettiest Color Trend: Pinks and Plums. In a sea of white and black, these pink and plum stunners were honestly the most eye-catching. We’re backing Rumer Willis in Reem Acra, Cameron Diaz in Chanel, and Penelope Cruz in Armani Prive.

Boldest Color Choice: Blues and Reds. Blue and red dresses came out in every hue and just popped in very patriotic fashion on the red carpet. The best of the best in this trend category were Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive, Eva Longoria in Reem Acra, and Kyra Sedgwick in Oscar De La Renta.

How to steal these looks for your own style? Add this Badgley Mischka Glass Pearl & Crystal Statement Necklace ($259, was $655.) over this gorgeous Mint One-Shoulder Gown ($443 down from $737). Or if you care to go the cocktail route, this Trina Turk Strapless Dress ($238) should do the trick.

Just stay away from Drew Barrymore’s glam squad. That is a perfect example of how choosing the right people can make or break a look, people.
