Although the 2012 Golden Globe Awards were a dream for any fashion lover, they were also a chance for us to see that even the stars can make mistakes on the red carpet. Some of them wear strange clothes that make no sense. Some of them sport the weirdest makeup which makes you wonder whether they own mirrors.
Maybe they have a skewed sense of fashion, perhaps they were trying to make some sort of bold statement. Or maybe they dress badly on purpose to be entertaining, so committed are they to their audience. You decide. Here’s a quick review of the top 2012 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Fashion Blunders.
Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Fashion Blunders
Let’s start with the worst clothes at the 69th Golden Globes and then ease our way into the makeup blunders.
Golden Globe Awards Fashion Blunder : Diane Ladd
Kicking off the list is Diane Ladd in a horrendous, wrinkled, badly-fitting silver coat over a weirdly shaped black dress. Everything about that coat is really unflattering on her – the cut, the color, and the texture. Plus, it makes her look like she’s been stuffed. Her silver pointy heels were meant to match the jacket supposedly, but they look decidedly off. This ensemble makes it look like she does her shopping at the salvation army store.
Golden Globe Awards Fashion Blunder : Piper Perabo
There’s something, or someone, under Piper Perabo’s dress. Notice the odd way it’s jutting out sharply from the back. Perhaps she’s hiding a friend under there who she couldn’t get a pass for. Tsk, tsk, the lengths some folks will go to.
Golden Globe Awards Fashion Blunder : Annabelle Wallis
Yikes! This full-length, long-sleeved dress worn by Annabelle Wallis is perfect for Halloween, but not for the Golden Globes. There’s some kind of optical illusion type motif on the dress that we can’t quite figure out. Is that a man staring at a space ship? Hmmm, maybe she’s a sci-fi fan and her dress is a tribute to aliens…
Golden Globe Awards Fashion Blunder : Majandra Delfino
OK, what’s up with those gloves? Majandra Delfino looks like she’s about to clean a toilet or handle toxic chemicals. Elbow-length black leather gloves may sound cool and edgy, but the kind that she’s wearing – especially when paired with her blouse (what is that?) – is just, it’s just… sigh, let’s move on, OK?
Golden Globe Awards Fashion Blunder : Paula Patton
Paula Patton was confused. She put on a glittery skirt because the red carpet demands glamour. Then she put on a casual blouse because she didn’t want to look like she was trying too hard. And then she donned a leather jacket so she’d look aloof but cool and edgy. This is just one of the strangest combinations we’ve ever seen. Seems like Paula went shopping with Diane for this one.
2012 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Makeup Blunders
Are we done yet? Take heart, we’re halfway there.
See, some stars dress badly. Others wear great clothes but fudge their makeup so bad that the no one bothers looking at their dresses. Here are some of the 2012 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Makeup Blunders – proof that sometimes even the stars have no idea what they are doing.
Kathleen Robertson looks plain weird. That lip color looks terrible on her. But what really ruins it is that the blush does not match her lips or suit her face. She just looks sickly.
She just jumps right out at you. Sianoa Smit-McPhee seems to be inspired by the vampire phenomenon. That maroon is waaaay too dark against her pale skin and blonde hair. But even that could be forgiven if it was executed properly. Take a closer look at her lower lip. You can see the uneven lines where the liner was drawn in badly, creating a lopsided pout. Look at the upper lip too. The pouty part of her upper lip is bigger on the left than it is on the right. Someone must have been a little tipsy while doing their makeup.
Amanda Peet is a naturally beautiful woman. So when her makeup goes wrong, you really notice it. I think she was going for the natural look here, but something about the way her makeup was executed just makes her look washed out. And to top it off, she went with dark eye makeup that, again for some unknown reason, went wrong. Rather than looking smoky and mysterious, the eye makeup has gotten into the wrinkles around her eyes.
Lord! So many celebs are still in the Halloween spirit, huh? Bai Ling makeup and hair looks terrifying. Her lips look weird, while her fake eyelashes look like they’re going to jump out and devour you. Her hair does nothing to salvage the look either. Yes, the messy look is in. But this isn’t messy, it’s just bad grooming. This is not I-just-got-out-of-bed hair, it’s I’m-depressed-and-haven’t-washed-for-weeks hair.
You can quit gritting your teeth and cringing now. We’re done for today. But the awards season is just beginning so we’ll be seeing a lot more fashion faux pas and makeup disasters before the month’s up. Stay tuned.
