Part of the reason I even do Dress the Nominee is because the Golden Globes broke me with boringness a few years ago. Safe is neither interesting nor memorable. It's safe. What a change! becca and I had a hard time picking our favorite looks this year because so many celebrities experimented with cut and color and accessories. Our picks demonstrate the importance of accessories, color, design and texture.
Grecian gowns are one of my top offenders for boring, but the details on Emma Stone's dress -- slightly beaded shoulders, interesting color blocking, and a big ol' eagle belt -- take it beyond the usual.
I was crazy-go-nuts for Giles' laser cut swan dress when it came down the runway and immediately saved it to my "awards show dresses" file. Diana Argon wore the perfect hair and makeup with it. This look may have landed her on a few worst dressed lists, but we think it's awesome. It's like she's a delicate paper Valentine.
