Golden Globes Red-Carpet Review
A look at the fashion hits and misses at this year's ceremony.

Jennifer Lawrence — the winner of her own Golden Globe, with a less-than-award-winning thank-you speech — is definitely a beautiful girl. She would have done better to leave out “I beat Meryl” from her notes, but putting that aside, let’s have a look at her dress by Dior. I imagine it looked gorgeous on the hanger, but there’s something not quite right about it on her figure. The red gown, with its classic strapless neckline and full skirt, gave off a glamorously retro vibe, but the hips are definitely too tight, as you can see by the pulling in the seams. Remember folks, in couture, it must fit perfectly, or it is a total disaster. Indeed, Lawrence is stunning in red, but the shapes of the bodice and bust area leave me wondering whether there were last-minute alterations done, as they appear rushed and not as sophisticated as the rest of the dress. Also, call me crazy, but this dress appears to need an hour of hot steaming. Fabrics of this quality and price point should have held up with normal wear before succumbing to the inevitable wrinkling. On a side note, I am not surprised Lawrence selected Dior Haute Couture as her choice, given Lawrence is the new official face of the brand.
